Celiac Disease and Cataract Risk

Great, something else to worry about, right?  Well, maybe, or maybe not.

Study Links Celiac Disease to Cataract Risk

(You may have to register for free to read the article.)

This article was of great interest to me, since there I have a strong family history of cataracts.  According to the study, celiac disease doesn’t seem to cause cataracts, but the two conditions may share risk factors.  Not really surprising, considering cataracts are already linked to many autoimmune disorders, as is celiac disease.

Just something to be aware of.
