  • a HRs were estimated by using stratified Cox proportional-hazard regression and ORs were estimated with conditional logistic regression. Controls were matched for age, sex, calendar period of birth, and county of residence.

  • b Adjusted analyses accounting for education level, socioeconomic status, and type 1 diabetes.

  • c Small-intestinal inflammation without villous atrophy (Marsh I–II).

  • d Normal mucosa (Marsh 0) but with positive CD serology 180 days before and until 30 days after biopsy (antigliadin, antiendomysial, or antitransglutaminase antibodies).
