    Default Has Antibiotic Overuse Caused a Celiac Disease Epidemic?

    Chris Kresser
    June 9, 2015

    Celiac disease is on the rise, and the population-wide overuse of antibiotics could play a key role in triggering disease onset.
    There’s no denying that celiac disease (CD) is more prevalent now than ever. In the US, rates of CD have increased at least 5-fold over the past few decades, and prevalence in Finland has doubled. (1, 2, 3) The incidence of CD has also increased four-fold in the UK and three-fold in the Netherlands in the past 20 years, and the incidence of pediatric CD in Scotland has increased 6.4-fold. (4, 5, 6)
    So naturally, everyone is wondering – why? We know that there’s a strong genetic component to celiac disease (and our ability to detect the disease has vastly improved), but the rising rates have occurred too quickly to be explained by a genetic shift in the population.

    He does make it sound like a connection, although I still am inclined to think excess gluten (and possibly glyphosate) also play a role.
