Autoimmune Psoriatic Arthritis and Celiac Disease

Psoriatic arthritis, an auto-immune condition, occurs in people with psoriasis and can cause painful inflammation of the joints. According to several studies people with psoriatic arthritis are more likely to have celiac disease and may benefit from a gluten-free diet.

In a recent article (9.25.18) featured on titled “Is there a link between gluten and PsA” the authors examined several studies and have found there is a strong link between the two auto-immune conditions, though “the details of this relationship remain unclear”.

If diagnosed with PsA, may want to consider getting tested for celiac.
