Long-Term Health Risks of Untreated Celiac Disease

Pancreatic disease in celiac disease

Coexistence of a pancreatic disorder and celiac disease is actually quite frequent, and it can result in the worsening of digestive problems and malnutrition. Various European studies have demonstrated that the prevalence of type 1 diabetes is more common in those diagnosed with celiac disease. It is entirely possible that the same genes that are responsible for celiac disease may cause other autoimmune diseases like diabetes, causing damage to the pancreas.
