What Is the Best Study to Link Gluten, Crohn's, and Adult Onset Diabetes for CW Folks?

Short of the long: I need a study or three that I can spread around to loved ones who have auto-immune issues, and need an eye opener. I have been trying to get the word out on Paleo for years now, but this is too close to home, and too tragic not to notice. I don't have a research or medical background, and PubMed gave me more information than I can interpret. Is there a study out there with all the right dots to connect?

I have read the books, but getting someone else to read them is another matter entirely.

Thank you.

It does not exist, or in a legit journal at any rate (you might see a "study" that is some random forums post including all three, but it is a kinda novel combination of currently unlinked medical concerns). Gluten is linked to celiac disease (intolerance is gaining ground and looking real as well for IBS and the like), but that is it. Currently diabetes is linked most strongly to refined sugar (mostly soda really).

And adult onset diabetes (aka type 2) is due to excessive insulin resistance and/or over production demands wearing out the islets in the pancreas, which is different than having your immune system destroy them.

If there was a clear link between diabetes and gluten in a large published study than gluten free would be a common diabetes suggestion. I cannot even recall seeing this relationship suggested before, and I've read lots stuff from odd corners of the internet.
