Increased risk of migraine in patients with Celiac Disease, gluten sensitivity and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD, Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis)

Previous studies disclosed the increased risk of experiencing migraines in patients with Celiac Disease.  Now a study done at Columbia University Medical Center found that patients with Celiac Disease or gluten sensitivity or IBD had respectively higher increased risks of having migraines than people who didn’t suffer with these conditions, of 3.79, 9.3 and 2.66 times.

If you are a migraine sufferer and your physician feels that you exhibit symptoms that maybe associated with Celiac Disease, gluten sensitivity or Inflammatory Bowel Disease, speak to your doctor about exploring these possible diagnoses further.  It is possible that correcting or improving these conditions, should you have them, may also improve your migraine status.
