Further in Diabetes mellitus patients a high prevalence has shown for coeliac ds and also a link between infertility and in miscarriage tendencies (Ciacci et al. 1996)

In the last few year a lot of research has been conducted in the area of gliadin induce disorders and the
clinical picture of gluten sensitivity has emerged. It differs from true celiac disease, since no Auto-Antibodies (transglutaminase) are produced. Gliadin antibodies are formed during an immune
response in the gut against the gluten (gliadin). This occurs at true celiac disease, but also in the clinical picture of gluten sensitivity. Only 30-40% of the patients with gluten sensitivity show an abdominal symptom picture with bloating, loss of appetite, irritable bowel syndrome, abdominal pain, constipation and flatulence. Alternating with complain such as burning tongue, general tiredness. The most common atypical presentation of gluten sensitivity starts with tiredness of unclear origin, anemia and can stretch to consequences due to autoimmune disease (e.g. thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis).

Please note: It is essential that prior to taking the gliadin antibody test and the celiacs disease, to be on
gluten contain diet. You need to regular eat daily with each meal including items that contain gluten for 2 weeks to avoid false negative results.
