Default The Connection Between Dairy and Celiac

Celiac Disease and Dairy Products

The March, 2005 issue of the journal Digestion (2005
Mar. 16;71(2):106-110) notes a powerful correlation
between Celiac Disease and lactose intolerance.

The Celiac Disease Foundation's (CDF) official position is that
the cause of celiac disease is "unknown." CDF's definition of
celiac disease:

"A lifelong digestive disorder, found in individuals who are
genetically susceptible, that results in damage to the small
intestine by interfering with the absorption of nutrients.
Celiac Disease (CD) is unique in that a specific food component,
gluten, has been identified as the culprit. Gluten is the common
name for the offending proteins in specific cereal grains that
are harmful to persons with CD. These proteins are found in
all forms of wheat (including durum, semolina, spelt, kamut,
einkorn, and faro), and related grains, rye, barley, and tritcale.
Damage to the mucosal surface of the small intestine is caused by
an immunologically toxic reaction to the ingestion of gluten."

I have met dozens of people whose loved ones have been diagnosed
with Celiac Disease. I have communicated with hundreds of others
by email. In every case, those who are diagnosed with Celiac Disease
have also identified milk and dairy products as a culprit.

In any event, the March issue of the journal Digestion
notes the strong relationship between Celiac Disease and
intolerance to milk.

A group of scientists at the Catholic University, Department
of Internal Medicine, Rome, Italy (Ojettim et. al.), have
observed a high prevalence of Celiac Disease patients who
had previously been diagnosed as lactose intolerant, leading
them to conclude:

"Celiac Disease is much more common than previously suspected."

People diagnosed with Celiac Disease are aware of milk's
harmful affects. One day, the medical community and Celiac
Disease Foundation might also take notice.
