A friend of mine that had no significant health problems all his life and definitely did not experience any food related trouble, was forced to take a endoscopy of stomach and duodenum; doctors found him have shorter than normal villi (2:1 length/width, instead of expected 4:1).
He does not believe gluten has anything to do with this.

Does anybody know what other things could cause duodenum villi to get shorter?
