Immunoglobulin A (Iga)-isotype antibodies play an important role in immunity owing to their structure, glycosylation, localization and receptor interactions. Dysfunctions in this system can lead to multiple types of pathology. This review describes the characteristics of Iga and discusses the involvement of abnormalities in the Iga system on the development of celiac disease and Iga nephropathy.

CONCLUSIONS: Adults with undetected CD and type 1 diabetes have worse glycemic control and a higher prevalence of retinopathy and nephropathy. Treatment with a GFD for 1 year is safe in adults with type 1 diabetes and does not have a negative impact on the quality of life.

The treatment with gluten-free diet and other conservative measures (ACEI and statin) is followed by clinical improvement and simultaneous decrease of tissue antitransglutaminase IgA-antibodies and complete remission of proteinuria. We review the relationship between celiac disease and membranous nephropathy and the role of diet in the management of both diseases.

CONCLUSION: We suggest that immune characteristics associated with CD increase the risk of chronic renal disease. Individuals with CD may also be at a moderately increased risk of any form of GN.

We reported a female patient with unrecognized celiac disease and multiple extra intestinal manifestations, mainly related to a deranged immune function, including macroamilasemia, macrolipasemia, IgA nephropathy, thyroiditis, and anti-b2-glicoprotein-1 antibodies, that disappeared or improved after the implementation of a gluten-free diet.

Circulating IgA-antigliadin antibodies (IgA-AGA) are often found in patients with IgA nephropathy (NP). IgA-AGA are sensitive markers of an abnormal immune system reaction to gluten, seen particularly in patients with celiac disease.

The observation of the present five cases together with the notion of an increased prevalence in diabetes mellitus of celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis suggests that the occurrence of IgA-nephropathy in diabetic patients is not mere coincidence.
