Calcium absorption and bone mineral density in celiacs after long term treatment with gluten-free diet and adequate calcium intake.

Abstract:

Calcium malabsorption, hypocalcemia and skeletal demineralization are well-recognized features of untreated celiac disease. This study investigates calcium absorption and bone mineral density (BMD) after a prolonged, over 4 years, treatment with a gluten-free diet.
