Recommendation details

Recommendation ID: CG86/4
Question: Does adherence to a gluten free diet improve diabetes-related outcomes in people with coeliac disease and type 1 diabetes?
Page: 60
Any explanatory
notes (if applicable):
There is some evidence that glycaemic control is improved in people with type 1 diabetes who have coeliac disease and follow a gluten-free diet, but this evidence is not conclusive. Good quality, longitudinal cohort studies are needed to determine whether adherence to a gluten-free diet improves diabetes-related outcomes in adults and children with newly-diagnosed type 1 diabetes and coeliac disease. Such outcomes should include blood glucose control, cardiovascular risk factors (including weight), diabetic-related complications, and health-related quality of life.
