Celiac / coeliac disease linked to EDS 2016
« on: October 04, 2017, 12:20:41 AM »

EDS linked  to celiac disease!
Nationwide population-based cohort study of celiac disease and risk of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Joint  Hypermobility Syndrome

Laszkowska et al. 2016
Digestive and liver disease
June 2016

Conclusions
"Individuals with coeliac disease have a higher risk of EDS/JHS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) than the general population....."

Note: One blood test is never enough testing for coeliac disease; it very often gives false negatives. You always need to at least have the second blood test for coeliac genes as well.
