Special Issue "Celiac Disease and Non-celiac Gluten Sensitivity, Extraintestinal-Associated Conditions: Efficacy of a Gluten-Free Diet"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2023.
Celiac Disease (CD) and Nonceliac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS) are the two most frequent conditions belonging to the group of Gluten-Related Disorders (GRDs). Both diseases are triggered and worsened by gluten proteins ingestion, and these affect genetically predisposed individuals. The main prevalence of CD is around 1–2%, and NCGS is much more frequent, estimated at between 5 and 15% of the general population, all over the world.
GRDs are manifested by symptoms of gastrointestinal tract disorders, as well as many others complaints coming from various hematological dermatological endocrinological, gynecological, rheumatological, and nervous-system-associated conditions. The presence of these different extraintestinal processes can appear before or after the diagnosis of CD or NCGS, and may befit the instauration of a gluten-free diet (GFD)
It is believed that NCGS represents heterogeneous groups with different subgroups characterized by different etiologies, different clinical histories, and different courses. There also appears to be an overlap between NCGS and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
GFD should be used in patients with a diagnosed GRDs, including CD, NCGS, and wheat-sensitive eosinophilic esophagitis (WSEE). Use of this diet in the management of other digestive conditions, including gastroesophageal reflux disease, IBS, and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), is still controversial.
The current Special Issue, entitled “Celiac Disease and Non-celiac Gluten Sensitivity, Extraintestinal-Associated Conditions: Efficacy of a Gluten-Free Diet” is designed to include articles that will address these issues. We welcome different types of manuscript submissions, including original research articles and up-to-date reviews (systematic reviews and meta-analyses).
