Case study finds back pain improves with vitamin supplements and gluten-free diet.

Among other conditions, bone disorders can be related to celiac disease. A recent article published in The Endocrinologist presented a case study of osteomalacia, or softening of the bones, in a woman who also suffered from celiac disease. 

The woman complained of low back pain caused by disc lesions – a result of osteomalacia. Her pain failed to improve even after a discectomy.

After prescribing vitamin D and calcium supplements and a gluten-free diet, doctors identified “dramatic improvement” in the woman’s pain.  

The article advised others to remember that “celiac disease can present with osteomalacia, and low back pain can result from the complications.”
