The epidemiology of coeliac disease (CD) is changing. Presentation of CD with malabsorptive symptoms or malnutrition is now the exception rather than the rule and, it now affects those underweight and overweight equally. In concert with these epidemiological shifts, the incidence of CD is increasing. These changing patterns of disease presentation are challenging traditional management paradigms, and clinicians now need to adapt to these changes and respond to the demands of an increasingly… 
Celiac Disease: Against the Grain in Gastroenterology
TLDR
Advances are in the making for novel biomarkers to monitor disease and for pharmacological support of celiac disease, and drugs undergoing phase I and phase II clinical trials include intraluminal therapies and vaccines to restore immune tolerance.
Cutaneous and Mucosal Manifestations Associated with Celiac Disease
TLDR
The different cutaneous manifestations that have been associated with CD and the possible mechanisms involved are described to give rise to an appropriate screening method for CD.
Celiac Disease, Gluten-Free Diet, and Metabolic and Liver Disorders
TLDR
Investigation of the links between a gluten-free diet (GFD) and metabolic/liver disorders in CD patients found increases in the frequency of NAFLD, weight gain, and alterations of the lipid profile suggest that important changes happen in celiac patients on a GFD, though the physiopathology of these conditions is unclear.
Dietary compliance in celiac disease

TLDR
Evidence has accumulated that a strict gluten-free diet can result in resolution of diarrhea, weight gain and normalization of nutrient malabsorption, but this histopathological response appears to be time-dependent, sex-dependent and age-dependent.
Celiac Disease Diagnosed in an Older Adult Patient with a Complex Neuropsychiatric Involvement: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
TLDR
The case of celiac disease diagnosis in a 75-year-old woman with a long-term history of chronic delusional jealousy and a complex neurological involvement is presented, and the importance of being aware of CD extraintestinal manifestations is highlighted.
Celiac Disease and Liver Disorders: From Putative Pathogenesis to Clinical Implications
TLDR
The objective of the article is to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date review on the latest hypotheses explaining the pathogenetic relationship between celiac disease and liver injury, and recommend a rational approach for managing elevated transaminases in celiac patients.
Multiple wandering jejunal intussusceptions in an adult patient with celiac disease: Atypical presentation
TLDR
The condition of a 28-year-old Saudi male known case of brucellosis diagnosed and treated 10 months ago, who presented to the hospital complaining of diffuse intermittent dull abdominal pain with mild abdominal distention, remains well and repeat CT scan showed persistence of multiple intussusceptions, though at different sites of the jejunum.
Acrodystrophic axonal polyneuropathy with celiac disease: a case report
TLDR
A 41-year-old Ukrainian male suffered from symmetric, sensorimotor axonal polyneuropathy and encephalopathy associated with celiac disease, which is characterized by severe trophic disorders in the lower extremities (trophic ulcers, hyperkeratosis, and anhidrosis).
It Is High Time for Personalized Dietary Counseling in Celiac Disease: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis on Body Composition
TLDR
Body composition-related parameters of CD patients differ from that of the non-celiac control subjects even after a longstanding GFD, according to meta-analysis.
Is duodenal biopsy always necessary for the diagnosis of coeliac disease in adult patients with high anti-tissue transglutaminase (TTG) antibody titres?
TLDR
Coeliac serology using anti-TTG IgA with titres ≥10× normal value is an excellent predictor of CD, irrespective of age, gender and ethnicity.

Coeliac disease, gluten-free diet, and malignancy.
TLDR
Two hundred and two patients with coeliac disease or idiopathic steatorrhoea previously reported from this unit have been reviewed after a further 10 years of follow-up and there was no evidence that patients showing sub-optimal clinical response to gluten withdrawal or persisting falt jejunal biopsies were more prone to die of cancer.
Systematic review: adherence to a gluten‐free diet in adult patients with coeliac disease
TLDR
A large number of patients with coeliac disease who present with atypical symptoms or who are asymptomatic and detected by case screening are not adherent to a gluten‐free diet, and the factors associated with non‐adherence are understood.
Malignancy in coeliac disease--effect of a gluten free diet.
TLDR
The results indicate that for coeliac patients who have taken a GFD for five years or more the risk of developing cancer over all sites is not increased when compared with the general population, and give further support for advising all patients to adhere to a strict G FD for life.
Samuel Gee, Aretaeus, and the coeliac affection.
TLDR
Samuel Jones Gee was a man with a deep love of the past and a passion for the accurate use of words, which, he had learnt, led ito accurate (thinking and caused fewer mistakes than fall to the lot of most mortal men.
A novel serogenetic approach determines the community prevalence of celiac disease and informs improved diagnostic pathways
TLDR
Screening with TG2 IgA serology and requiring biopsy confirmation caused the community prevalence of CD to be substantially underestimated, and testing for HLA-DQ genes and confirmatory serology could reduce the numbers of unnecessary gastroscopies.

TLDR
Quality of life in those with CD could be increased with early diagnosis, increased availability of gluten-free foods, improved food labelling, and better dietary instruction.
Mucosal Recovery and Mortality in Adults With Celiac Disease After Treatment With a Gluten-Free Diet
TLDR
Mucosal recovery was absent in a substantial portion of adults with celiac disease after treatment with a GFD, and there was a borderline significant association between confirmed mucosal recovery and reduced mortality independent of age and gender.
Current Status of Celiac Disease Drug Development
TLDR
Although biomarkers including histology and serology will always be important in therapeutic clinical trials, they currently lack the necessary evidence linking them to improved patient outcomes required for use as primary outcomes for drug approval, for this reason, patient-reported outcomes will likely be primary end points in Phase III CeD trials for the foreseeable future.
Metabolomics as a tool for diagnosis and monitoring in coeliac disease
TLDR
Through the comprehensive analysis of metabolites, metabolomics offers great promise for the early detection of CD and convenient monitoring of response to a GFD and perhaps an accurate means of assessing compliance to aGFD.
Screening for Celiac Disease in a North American Population: Sequential Serology and Gastrointestinal Symptoms
TLDR
Serologic testing can readily detect this disease in a general population of a geographically isolated area and screening for celiac disease was widely accepted in this preventative health-care setting.
