Susceptibility to Celiac Disease 3

Susceptibility to Celiac Disease 3: Introduction

Susceptibility to Celiac Disease 3: Susceptibility to celiac disease 3 is a term allocated to a genetic defect on a particular chromosome (chromosome 2q33) which makes a patient more susceptible to developing celiac disease. However, it is important to note that having the genetic anomaly does not mean a person will definitely develop celiac disease. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder characterized by intolerance to gluten by the small intestine. The type and severity of symptoms varies amongst people - some people have severe gastrointestinal symptoms from infancy whereas other have no symptoms other than fatigue or anemia during adulthood. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Susceptibility to Celiac Disease 3 is available below.

Prognosis for Susceptibility to Celiac Disease 3

Prognosis for Susceptibility to Celiac Disease 3: 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.
