Q

Is hepatitis associated with celiac disease?

There are two forms of hepatitis associated with celiac:

  • A specific “celiac hepatitis” with mild elevation of AST, ALT and nothing else
  • Autoimmune hepatitis.
Thus, celiac disease has no association with hepatitis B, which is a parenterally transmitted hepatitis. July, 2015
