ABSTRACT. In 54 children with coeliac disease, mild iron deficiency anaemia or evidence of iron deficiency without anaemia were common at the time of diagnosis. Treatment with gluten‐free diet without iron medication eliminated all evidence of iron deficiency and completely normalized laboratory values. Subsequent challenge with gluten resulted in the rapid reappearance of suboptimal iron balance as evidenced by decrease in serum ferritin concentration. 
Gluten-free diet improves iron-deficiency anaemia in patients with coeliac disease.
TLDR
A strict gluten-free diet led to an increase in serum iron, resolution of anaemia, and restitution of normal mucosal morphology, and severe iron-deficiency anaemia associated with asymptomatic coeliac disease is responsible to gluten- free diet.
Iron-deficiency anemia as the sole manifestation of celiac disease
TLDR
A strict gluten-free diet led to an increase in serum iron, resolution of the anemia, and restitution of normal mucosal architecture, suggesting iron-deficiency anemia may be the lone manifestation of celiac disease.
Celiac Disease in Infants: Prevention and Dietary Treatment
TLDR
A changing pattern in the presentation of pediatric CD is reported, such as a more frequent diagnosis in older children, mostly presents with atypical symptoms, and typical (classical) CD is more common in younger children and frequently is associated with more severe intestinal injury.
Subclinical coeliac disease is a frequent cause of iron-deficiency anaemia.
TLDR
Coeliac disease is a frequent cause of iron-deficiency anaemia, and antigliadin and antiendomysial antibody tests should be always performed in the diagnostic algorithm of anaemic patients.
6 Coeliac disease in childhood
TLDR
Anti-gliadin IgA and IgG, anti-reticulin and anti-endomysium antibodies are now almost totally reliable in identifying children who have coeliac disease and are valuable in monitoring the adequacy of gluten withdrawal.
IRON DEFICIENCY IN CHILDREN: DETECTION AND PREVENTION

TLDR
This paper reviews detection and prevention of iron de®ciency anaemia (IDA) referring mainly to studies published in the last 5 years.
The soluble transferrin receptor (sTfR)-ferritin index is a potential predictor of celiac disease in children with refractory iron deficiency anemia
TLDR
The sTfR/ferritin index may be a predictive measure in discriminating anemic patients with Celiac disease from those without celiac disease and when ferritin was <5ng/mL.
Celiac disease in patients with an affected member, type 1 diabetes, iron-deficiency, or osteoporosis?
TLDR
In conclusion, significant reservoirs of CD can be found in some at-risk groups, such as those with T1DM, family members, and referred patients with osteoporosis and anemia, where it is not clear what impact CD has on the quality of life of these individuals.
Long-term follow-up of 61 coeliac patients diagnosed in childhood: evolution toward latency is possible on a normal diet
TLDR
Long-term latency developed in about 20% of CD patients who remained symptom free after gluten reintroduction, and the increased risk of osteoporosis substantiates the need for a GFD in silent patients.
Differences in metabolic variables between adult coeliac patients at diagnosis and patients on a gluten-free diet.
TLDR
Body composition, dietary habits, basal energy expenditure, and substrate oxidation were investigated in patients with the classic form of coeliac disease, finding that untreated patients had lower fat mass and FFM content than controls.

Iron deficiency in children with coeliac disease on treatment with gluten-free diet. Role of intestinal blood loss.
TLDR
It is concluded that treatment with iron is indicated in many children with coeliac disease as the increased losses of iron persist for long periods although absorption of iron seems to improve or be negligibly affected.
Iron deficiency in children with celiac disease.
TLDR
Regular determination of serum iron levels appears to be useful in controlling the state of iron stores in celiac disease patients, as well as in deciding whether and when to recommend temporary iron supplementation.
Serum ferritin levels in celiac disease.
TLDR
It is suggested that serial blood ferritin evaluations together with the leukocyte migration inhibition factor production assay should eliminate the need for invasive intestinal biopsies for the confirmation and possible follow-up to response to treatment.
INTESTINAL MALABSORPTION: A CLINICAL STUDY OF 22 CHILDREN OVER 2 YEARS OF AGE
TLDR
This report presents the clinical symptomatology and findings in respect of 22 children over 2 years of age, in whom significant villous atrophy was found, and believes that these patients are all suffering from coeliac disease.
Changing Pattern of Childhood Coeliac Disease in Finland
TLDR
It is believed that coeliac disease has disappeared but that it will be found during the next decade in the patients who were not diagnosed in school age and adolescence.
110 children with coeliac disease, 1950-1969
TLDR
110 children with coeliac disease investigated over a period of 19 years are presented in 2 groups, 74 children presenting under 4 years and 36 over 4 years, and reasons are given for recommending a life-long gluten-free diet.
Intolerance to Cow's Milk and Wheat Gluten in the Primary Malabsorption Syndrome in Infancy
TLDR
It is suggested that cow’s milk intolerance may pave the way for a later developing sensitivity to gluten, as proposed earlier by Heiner et al.
Intolerance to Food Proteins in Malabsorption Syndrome
TLDR
It seems that gastrointestinal intolerances without malabsorption are rare, and patients start to gain weight within 3-4 weeks, however, absorption tests gave normal results after some months, and jejunal histology after some years.
EUROPEAN SOCIETY FOR PAEDIATRIC GASTROENTEROLOGY
TLDR
After oral administration, the non-enteropathogenic strain E. coli 083 was detected in the stools of colonized infants from the 2nd day, and remained dominant up to 16 weeks, and serum immunoglobulin levels remained unchanged.
Percentile curves for hemoglobin and red cell volume in infancy and childhood.
TLDR
The percentile curves were derived from several populations of non-indigent white children who lived near sea level and should be particularly applicable to the diagnosis and screening of iron deficiency and thalassemia minor.
