Eating more gluten as a kid increases risk of celiac disease.
A study last month published in the journal JAMA found that eating lots of gluten early in life increased a child’s risk of developing celiac disease if they were genetically prone to getting it. Researchers evaluated more than 6,600 newborns in the United States, Finland, Germany and Sweden and found that those who ate the most gluten were more likely later in life to develop the disease. Although not fully understood, celiac disease has a genetic component that can be identified. Although not everyone with the gene develops the disease. It appears that if you have the gene and you eat lots of gluten as a kid, you are raising your risk. This information is important for parents who have celiac disease in the family. They may want to limit their child’s gluten consumption to reduce the risk of getting the disease.
