Lower Prevalence of NIDDM and Metabolic Syndrome in Celiac Disease

May 9, 2013

Toufic Kabbani and colleagues report in Gastroenterology that the prevalence of non–insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) and metabolic syndrome are lower among patients with celiac disease than in matched controls and the general population. These differences are not explained by differences in body mass index.

Toufic Kabbani and colleagues investigated whether risk for non–insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) and metabolic syndrome are affected by celiac disease. Reporting in Gastroenterology, they conclude that the prevalence of NIDDM and metabolic syndrome are lower among patients with celiac disease than in matched controls and the general population. These differences are not explained by differences in body mass index. Studies are needed to determine the mechanisms by which celiac disease affects the risk for NIDDM and metabolic syndrome.
