Myopathy raises chances of Celiac

Just like IBS increases one's chance for a Celiac diagnosis, so does Myopathy.
Thus, celiac disease is more prevalent in patients with inflammatory myopathies than in the general population. -- Selva-O'Callaghan and colleagues (Muscle & Nerve, 2007;35(1):49-54)

If you have any friends with muscle weakness or inflammation, you might want to let them know.

Speaking of inflammation, I ran my workout a little too hard again today. Tomorrow, I'll be doing a bicycle ride north of Houston. Time to go prep. It should be fun.
