IC & Celiac Disease Overlap for Some

As of October 5, 2010 12% of interstitial cystitis (IC) patients report being diagnosed with both interstitial cystitis (IC) and celiac disease, in an online quick poll answered by 1,000 participants and sponsored by the Interstitial Cystitis Association. Another 15% of IC patients stated that foods with gluten bother their IC symptoms. This is not surprising given that many IC patients report a number of overlapping chronic conditions and many find that diet changes help to control symptoms of urgency, frequency and pain.
