Quality of life in children with diabetes and celiac disease: minimal impact of the double diagnosis
Pediatric Diabetes,

Sud S et al. – The additional diagnosis of celiac disease (CD) has minimal impact on quality of life in children with T1D; however, parents of CD + T1D children did express greater concern about their child's social functioning.

Methods
  • Cross-sectional assessment using a validated self-reported quality of life measure: 28 children with biopsy-proven CD + T1D were compared with 40 subjects with T1D aged 8–18 yr.
  • Parental and child reports were assessed as well as symptoms at the time of CD diagnosis and adherence with a GFD at the quality of life assessment.

Results
  • No significant differences in quality of life were observed between subjects with established CD + T1D and subjects with T1D alone.
  • Parents of children with CD + T1D reported lower social functioning scores than parents of children with T1D (p = 0.03).
  • In the CD + T1D group no differences in quality of life were observed with regard to age at CD diagnosis, CD duration, or on the basis of adherence with a GFD.
