In their interesting article on coeliac disease (CD) and socio-economic status, Whyte et al (1) report that CD is more common in children living in areas of the UK with higher socio-economic status than areas with low status. In 1996, we reported that a group of 72 Swedish children with CD were breastfed for a significantly shorter time than the 288 age-matched reference children included in the study (2). In addition, infants with CD were less likely to be breastfed when gluten was introduced into their diet. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
