Complications of coeliac disease: are all patients at risk?

Author information

  • 1St John's Hospital, Howden Road West, Livingston, West Lothian EH54 6PP, UK.


Coeliac disease is a common condition that is increasingly being recognised as a result of the development of sensitive and specific serology. The diagnosis of coeliac disease and its subsequent treatment with a gluten-free diet have implications for the patient, not just for symptom control but also for the possible effect on quality of life and risk of complications. Whether the mode of presentation of coeliac disease has an effect on survival or risk of complication is yet unclear. This article reviews the available evidence regarding these issues.
