The investigators hypothesis is that the women participating in an education programme based on problem based learning will show higher degree of perceived health than the women receiving usual care.
Celiac disease is a disorder of the small intestines triggered by dietary gluten, a protein in wheat-containing foods. Living with is far from easy and associated with restrictions and various dilemmas in daily life, leading to depressed mood and reduced well-being, particularly in women. We decided to include 100 celiac disease women on a gluten-free diet into a randomized controlled education trial in order to compare problem-based learning with usual care. Outcome measures will be two frequently employed questionnaires: PGWB (Psychological Well-being Index) to monitor Well-being and GSRS (Gastrointestinal Symptom Rating Scale) to measure the rate bowel symptoms as assessed at 6 months after the intervention.

Point of care tests (POCTs) might be used to identify patients with undiagnosed celiac disease who require further evaluation. We performed a large multicenter study to determine the performance of a ...
Previous studies have confirmed that women who are diagnosed with celiac disease report a lower quality of life than men who are diagnosed with the same illness.
Celiac disease has characteristics of an autoimmune disease, such as increased antibody levels to tissue transglutaminase (tTG). However, assays to measure these biomarkers in blood samples do not ide...

Celiac disease and wheat allergy (WA) are infrequent diseases in the general population, and a combination of the 2 is particularly rare. Celiac disease occurs in around 1% of the general population a...
A complex network of nerve fibers including sympathetic and parasympathetic efferents and visceral afferents. The celiac plexus is the largest of the autonomic plexuses and is located in the abdomen surrounding the celiac and superior mesenteric arteries.
Simple protein, one of the prolamines, derived from the gluten of wheat, rye, etc. May be separated into 4 discrete electrophoretic fractions. It is the toxic factor associated with CELIAC DISEASE.
Human immune-response, D-related antigen encoded by the D locus on chromosome 6 and found on lymphoid cells. It is strongly associated with celiac disease and psoriasis vulgaris.
A malabsorption syndrome that is precipitated by the ingestion of GLUTEN-containing foods, such as wheat, rye, and barley. It is characterized by INFLAMMATION of the SMALL INTESTINE, loss of MICROVILLI structure, failed INTESTINAL ABSORPTION, and MALNUTRITION.
