Q

Is gastritis sometimes associated with celiac disease?

Yes. Approximately 50-60% of celiacs have, at the time of diagnosis, a lymphocytic gastritis (infiltration of these specific white blood cells called lymphocytes into the superficial layers of the stomach). However, this is rarely the cause of symptoms and promptly regresses on a gluten-free diet. July, 2012
