Association Between #Celiac Disease and Mortality Risk in a Swedish Population

There were 49 829 patients with celiac disease, including 24% who were diagnosed between the years 2010 and 2017. The mean (SD) age at diagnosis was 32.2 (25.2) years and 62.4% were women. During a median follow-up time of 12.5 years, 13.2% (n = 6596) died. Compared with controls (n = 246 426), overall mortality was increased in those with celiac disease (9.7 vs 8.6 deaths per 1000 person-years; absolute difference, … Continue reading Association Between #Celiac Disease and Mortality Risk in a Swedish Population

Cardiac #Autoimmunity Is Associated With Subclinical Myocardial Dysfunction in Patients With Type 1 #Diabetes Mellitus

The existence of a diabetic cardiomyopathy has been postulated to explain the increased risk of heart failure (HF) in patients with diabetes mellitus; however, whether mechanisms specific to type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) affect the myocardium is unclear. We have recently shown that poor glycemic control in patients with T1DM followed in the DCCT (Diabetes Control and Complications Trial), but not in patients with type … Continue reading Cardiac #Autoimmunity Is Associated With Subclinical Myocardial Dysfunction in Patients With Type 1 #Diabetes Mellitus
