A Gluten-Free Diet Improves Bone Parameters in PreMenopausal Women with Celiac Disease, Study Finds

Original Article: Impaired Bone Microarchitecture Improves After One Year On Gluten-Free Diet: A Prospective Longitudinal HRpQCT Study in Women With Celiac Disease – Zanchetta – 2016 – Journal of Bone and Mineral Research – Wiley Online Library

Date of Publication: September 2016

(from Study Abstract) “We have recently identified a significant deterioration of bone microarchitecture in premenopausal women with newly diagnosed celiac disease (CD) using high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HRpQCT). The aim of this work was to assess changes in bone microarchitecture after 1 year on a gluten-free diet (GFD) in a cohort of premenopausal women. Read more here
(CeliacCorner Note:  most patients with improvement were also taking calcium and D supplementation in addition to GF diet and though improvements were noted, both volumetric density and bone microarchitecture were still below those of controls. Researchers say further studies are required to assess whether 100% improvement is possible)
