Topic: Connection to Coeliac & Gluten Intolerance?
A family member has recently been diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma - we are still 'processing' that and trying to understand why - but we also have gluten intolerance & coeliac (also called celiac) disease in the family, although this person had not been diagnosed with coeliac
This has led me to wonder whether there is a connection between the two (undiagnosed coeliac and cholangiocarcinoma). Coeliac is, in essentials, a hereditary inflammatory syndrome which typically affects the intestines.
Personally, I have an intolerance to gluten, which manifested itself in the form of serious joint inflammation/arthritis
Has anyone seen any research or studies along this line? And do others have a family history of gluten intolerance/coeliac disease?
