Connection Between Cancer and Celiac Disease

Macy Curry


Celiac Disease (CD) is an chronic autoimmune disease that affects millions of Americans. CD is triggered by the ingestion of gluten. Gluten can be found in wheat, rye, and barley. Celiac Disease is known to have a number of complications, including abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, etc. While Celiac Disease is primarily a gastrointestinal disorder, research has shown that it may also be associated with an increased risk of certain types of cancer. In this paper, we will explore the relationship between celiac disease and cancer, including the types of cancer that are most commonly associated with CD, the recent progress that researchers have made in determining the correlation between cancer and CD, and strategies for reducing the risk of cancer in people with Celiac Disease.
