This phenomenon affected by celiac disease often present an altered calcium metabolism.

This phenomenon is particularly common in the late diagnosis of celiac patients, as in the case of adults, but can in children. With the aim of recognizing calcium metabolism alterations and impaired bone mineralization, laboratory and radiology tests, such as dual-energy x – ray absorptiometry frequently frequently. These tests, the information on the health of the bones offer before the start a specific therapy and help to monitor the progression of bone disease once the diet started – are nowadays indicated in children too. But are they really necessary in the celiac child?. This phenomenon affected by celiac disease often present an altered calcium metabolism, osteopenia, do a bone mass – gluten – free diet alone is enough to keep the bones of pediatric patients with celiac disease Cure : Knowledge is simplifying decrease due to the impaired adsorption of this mineral, which treatment of osteoporosis treatment of osteoporosis .

‘The study at our institute underlines Alessandro Ventura, director of the Children’s Hospital is the first systematic study of calcium metabolism in children we have learned a very important lesson from this: it is true that celiac disease affects the bone but but the observation of the development of bone damage per apart by specific tests not in pediatric patients is necessary. It makes much more sense to focus on strict compliance with the gluten-free diet. Unless this issue is the pediatricians role critical. Of a saving of 120 child , form form of preventive intervention, as well as ‘environmental ecology ‘by avoiding the exposure of growing organisms, as it could be, radiation, such as those used in DEXA ‘..The study was conducted by Drs. Fradkin and Cowie of NIDDK and Dr. Sharon Saydah for Social and Scientific Systems, the work from NIDDK, one of the most National Institutes of Health financed under the U.S. Department of Health and Human.
