Abstract

The prevalence of coeliac disease (CD) in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) has been reported to be between 3-16%, with a mean prevalence of 8% (5–7 times greater than the general population)1. Here we describe a child with T1DM who presented with multiple fractures and osteopenia and was discovered to have CD.
