Dupuytren’s contracture and diet.

Have any of the of the paleo "heavy-weights" / drs or research ever tackled Dupuytren???s contracture vs diet? If so, would you be so kind in sharing the links.

I've read anecdotal accounts of the potential linkage between each of (of combination of) celiac disease, diabetes, high blood levels of glucose-insulin, and Dupuytren???s contracture. I've also read of anecdotal linkages and/or conjecture between DC and autoimmune diseases / inflammation. However, I'm looking for real data / analysis (if there is any).

That said, and to further the anecdotal cases, anybody here have Dupuytren???s contracture and also suffer(ed) from celiac disease or diabetes? How about auto immune diseases and Dupuytren???s contracture?

Cheers!

It does tend to be genetic, and genetic tests are available (such as 23andme.com).

My husband has this. Do you have any references for the above that you could point me to. I would be very grateful. He is not paleo and in fact eats a lot of grain and sugar, and no meat.

Try pubmed, something like this: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=Dupuytren's+co-morbidity

This hit: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21803632 talks about the HLA-DRB1*15 allele

That's the one that shows up with the autoimmune issues you mentioned. http://immunogenetics.blogspot.ca/2012/01/hla-and-autoimmune-disease-association.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HLA-DR15

There's a definite relationship between Dupuytren's and high blood sugar levels such as happen in poorly regulated diabetes. I have never heard of a link to coeliac disease or any auto-immune condition. http://dupuytrens-society.org.uk/Dupuytrens.html This is our information page in case youwant to know about any other conditions.

My Uncle has this and is diabetic. My Father in law has this and also suffers from vitiligo, gout and thyroid problems. Not heard of any evidence of a connection though.

Nice question! Both my parents have this so it looks like I'll be getting it in due course (I believe it's genetic?) Would be nice to know if there's something I can do to prevent/reduce it.

My mom and aunt take elderberry tablets that seem to help quite a bit for this . Not sure why it works though.
