Thanks for the reply.

CDT levels are likely not to be affected directly in Coeliac disease. However, they can be altered in iron deficiency, certain liver diseases, anemia due to iron deficiency, hereditary fructose intolerance etc..
Hope this helps.
Best.

That recommends that there might be a correlation.
