Bacteria

5 posts in this topic

My son has not improved enough on the gluten-free diet and his ttg levels are extremely high after 9 months. His Dr. did his biopsy again and took other samples. Today they told me he has a bacteria in his duodenum " we are trying to make heads or tales of this, we will call you when we know more" Has anyone else had this, if so what is it and how is it treated, is it related to Celiac disease?

Thanx for any opinions

You said, 'again' regarding the biopsy - did he have one before? If so, what did it say? I know that people question Dr. Fine (enterolab) but I just watched a video of one of the support groups he spoke at, in my area, and he spoke of bacteria in the duodendum (sp) - it was either a beleived cause of celiac disease or vise versa - but definately, they were related. Let us know.

There was a study a little while back about people not improving on a truely gluten-free diet (so no accidental exposure) often having SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth). Perhaps that is the issue here?

It does sound like possible bacterial overgrowth, which anybody can have. Some people take a probiotic like Culturelle and sometimes doctors prescribe antibiotics. It's simple to take care of.

Thanx for all of your replies.

kirst4588, you ask if he had a biobsy before. We went through the motions but due to an asthma attack under anesthetia, they had to abort the procedure before getting any samples.
