This case–control study illustrates that children with CD have a generally greater delay of DA and DM than healthy controls. The prevalence of delayed DM in children with CD is 62.5%. Young age, mother education, and family income are significant factors associated with delayed DM. No predictors could be detected with DM in children with CD except young age. Therefore, more longitudinal studies are needed to find more predicors for DM in children with CD.
