Forget Gluten, Are ATIs the Real Culprit?

A type of wheat proteins called ATIs may cause inflammation to spread beyond the gut.

Celiac.com 01/02/2017 - New research shows that a group of proteins in wheat, called ATIs, may be responsible for activating inflammation in such disorders as celiac disease, multiple sclerosis, asthma, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Scientists also believe that the proteins may promote the development of non-celiac gluten sensitivity. The findings were presented at UEG Week 2016 in Vienna in Vienna, Austria, a meeting organized by United European Gastroenterology for specialists to communicate the latest research in digestive and liver diseases.

One group of proteins found in wheat - amylase-trypsin inhibitors (ATIs) - has been shown to trigger an immune response in the gut that can spread to other tissues in the body. ATIs are plant-derived proteins that inhibit enzymes of common parasites - such as mealworms and mealybugs - in wheat.

Interestingly, ATIs also have an important role in metabolic processes that occur during seed development.

The finding that ATIs may promote inflammation in the and beyond the gut, is a major step forward in understanding the mechanics of celiac disease and/or gluten-intolerance.

No, not really. I had done my homework, so I reduced all grains substancially to give my guts a chance to heal. I increased all vegetables substancially and am basically going high fat, low carb. That is why I had a few hicups along the way, my diet was too high in FODMAPs (nuts, fruit, avo...

You might want to see about getting the blood test done again and getting a full celiac panel. You have to be consuming gluten daily for 12 weeks before the test. At least half a slice of bread a day. And keep eating gluten til you get the endoscope. The endoscope with biopsy is the golden standa...

Juca hun.....you just responded and tried talking to a person that has been gone for 12 years....please check the date

Welcome. You do sound like you could be one of us. You should get retested for celiac. Just because tests were negative a couple years ago doesn't mean they will be now. Any doctor can run the panel but if you can see a GI doctor that is familiar with celiac that might be best. Do not stop eat...
