Many people have wondered if there happens to be a correlation with scoliosis and celiac disease, I was one of them.
I was suddenly diagnosed with mild scoliosis and presented with my X rays after my third child. I had previous X ray and they were never “crooked”. It just so happens that a number of years later I was finally diagnosed celiac as well. Very interesting, is there a connection here?
Marion’s ( from Oregon) had asked the same question and gathered some information which she said I could share with you. Here are her results:
Thank you to everyone who responded to my question. I received 28 responses. 23 people said either they or someone in their family had both cd and scoliosis. 1 person said they are not associated, but are hereditary. 1 person said there’s no connection. Several people mentioned malnutrition as being a possible factor in scoliosis. A few people suggested that I do a Google search on the topic, which I have extensively done. I’m convinced that there’s a connection, and I’m factoring that into my daughter’s treatment plan.
