Research at Boston Children's Hospital now reveals the cause of this complication, known as diabetic enteropathy
, and a possible prevention and treatment strategy.
is caused by constant fecal- oral contamination and results in intestinal inflammation.
Then known as tropical enteropathy
, the disorder was seen initially on biopsy--intestinal linings tended to thin out and fill with inflammatory secretions.
Mechanisms of villous atrophy in autoimmune enteropathy
and coeliac disease.
Celiac disease (CD) is a chronic autoimmune enteropathy
occurring in genetically predisposed individuals following ingestion of wheat gluten and related protein fractions of other grains.
Impact of fibre deficiency and sanitary status on non-specific enteropathy
of the growing rabbit.
Common factors that predispose individuals to device retention include Crohn's disease, neoplastic lesions, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug--induced enteropathy
, stenosis, and adhesions (1).
Celiac sprue, or gluten-induced enteropathy
as it is more appropriately known, is characterized by intolerance to wheat glutens.
Celiac disease - also known as celiac sprue, gluten-sensitive enteropathy
and notropical sprue - is a genetic autoimmune digestive disease that prevents people from being able to tolerate gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.
is a medical condition which is characterized by loss of protein, vitamin and trace elements into the intestines which can be complicated by various diseases.
Eosinophilic gastritis and gastroenteritis may affect all age groups and present with failure to thrive (in children), abdominal pain, irritability, gastric dysmotility, vomiting, diarrhoea, dysphagia and (in severe cases) protein-losing enteropathy
Surgery in patients with CCS has been carried out for associated gastrointestinal tract malignancies, intestinal obstruction and severe protein loosing enteropathy
Within this miscellaneous group of enteric pathologies, some diseases appear to possess peculiar features, such as the epizootic rabbit enteropathy
, enterotoxemia caused by Clostridium spiriforme and C.
In the course of the disease, the patient develops persistent diarrhoeas due to protein-losing enteropathy
Of these, celiac disease, a gluten-sensitive enteropathy
, is the only common disorder that is preventable through diet modification.
