Auto-immune: The direct evidence for causal relationship between celiac disease and Raynaud is lacking or we don't know. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease. Secondary Raynauds is also an autoimmune condition. A person with Raynaud’s is thus more likely to have celiac disease than that in the general population by a poorly defined immune mechanism.
