Relationship between rs1800796 Polymorphism of IL-6 Gene and IL-6 Serum Level with Thyroid Hormones in a Sample of Iraqi Celiac Disease Patients
Celiac disease (CD) is autoimmune human leukocyte antigen HLA– linked enteropathy that develop upon ingestion of gluten containing diet, with diarrhea, malabsorption and weight loss as a major presentation. The disease is closely linked to a number of extra intestinal disorder especially endocrine diseases. This study aimed to find Relationship between IL-6 gene polymorphism rs1800796 and IL-6 serum level with thyroid Hormones in a sample of Iraqi celiac disease patients. The CC genotype showed a higher frequency in the control while the GG genotype showed a higher frequency in the patients.
