Doctors for Celiac Disease and Liver Damage Connection

There is a deep connection between celiac disease and the liver. Liver enzymes may be elevated in people with celiac disease. This can sometimes indicate a liver problem, but increased liver enzymes do not always lead to liver disease. Apart from this, the risk of liver damage is also significantly higher in people with celiac disease. These people may have serious diseases like fatty liver and liver failure. However, when celiac disease treatment begins in the form of a gluten-free diet, liver enzymes gradually decrease and liver health improves.

Celiac disease can cause a variety of liver problems. This includes -

Excess liver enzymes

High levels of liver enzymes can be found in people with celiac disease, but this does not happen with every patient. Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) medical tests are recommended to determine the level of liver enzymes. These tests are done when there is a liver problem or the liver does not work properly. According to research, liver enzymes are mildly increased in 42 percent of celiac patients. These increased enzymes also become normal after a gluten-free diet.

It has been proved in many research that many people with celiac disease are also more prone to autoimmune liver disease.

In this situation, a liver transplant may be required.

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder. This happens when a person takes a gluten-rich diet. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, and other grains. When a person with celiac disease consumes gluten, their body overreacts to the protein and problems start to arise. Celiac disease can also affect the liver. People with celiac disease can have serious diseases like liver failure, cirrhosis, fatty liver, and hepatitis, but these can be avoided by taking a gluten-free diet.
