Simple Inflammatory Markers for the Early Diagnosis of Celiac Disease

In newly diagnosed Celiac Disease (CD), it was found that neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet/lymphocyte ratio (PLR) were significantly higher, mean platelet volume, mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration and red cell distribution width were significantly lower than in healthy group. Neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio, PLR and RDW may be early clues to the diagnosis of CD.


Objective: The aim is to compare the newly diagnosed Celiac and control groups in terms of inflammatory markers such as platelet/lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR).

Methods: This retrospective study included 68 patients who were newly diagnosed with Celiac Disease (CD) and 30 healthy volunteers. Haemogram tests and C-reactive protein (CRP) measurements were obtained from the hospital records. Then, NLR and PLR were calculated.
