No increased risk of cancer death with celiac disease, according to UK Researchers

According to research out of the United Kingdom, by 10 years after a diagnosis of Celiac Disease (CD) people with CD do not have an increased risk of dying from cancer or heart issues, and only have a “very small” increase in risk of dying from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, according to a new study.

(Reuters Health) “People with celiac disease were slightly less likely than the general population to die of cardiovascular disease, but they are a tenth of a percent more likely to die of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer of the white blood cells. That’s a very small increase in risk, Sultan told Reuters Health.”

“This is a large well-designed study suggesting that celiac patients in England, and likely elsewhere in the Western world, are at no increased risk of death,” he told Reuters Health by email. That is indeed very good news.”
