Prognosis for Autoimmune thyroid disease associated Celiac Disease

Prognosis for Autoimmune thyroid disease associated Celiac Disease: Delayed diagnosis can have long-term negative effects on children's growth and development. Diagnosed patients who can completely avoid gluten have a good prognosis. This can be difficult as gluten is used in a wide range of foods and ingesting even a small amount can cause symptoms. Strict avoidance of gluten means a normal life expectancy can be expected. However, up to 10% of people may eventually develop gastrointestinal cancers which can affect life expectancy.
