I have this blood disorder and have only recently been diagnosed with CD. I was amazed when the Gastroenterologist, having noticed my blood status in my notes, specifically asked if anyone else in my family had Factor V and if so they should be tested for coeliac disease as, he said, there is now some research showing a connection between the two. I have only managed to find a few snippets on the internet about this, though it does seem there could be something in it. Incidentally, my blood group is A+ which is the most commonly occuring group in Factor V Leiden.
