Patients With Celiac Disease More Likely to Suffer Migraines
reported on MSN Health.
Researchers analyzed 502 people over the course of a year. Chronic headaches were reported by 56 percent of gluten-sensitive participants, 30 percent of those with celiac disease and 23 percent of those with inflammatory bowel disease, while only 14 percent of the control group reported headaches.
"We found significantly higher prevalence of headaches in patients with celiac disease compared to those without it," said study co-author Alexandra Dimitrova, MD, a neurology resident at the Neurological Institute at Columbia University Medical Center in New York City.
