Abstract: Coeliac disease (celiac disease) is an inflammatory disorder of the upper small intestine in which gluten acts as an essential factor in its pathogenesis. Although it is generally accepted that cereal protein activation of the immune system is involved in celiac disease progression, a non-immunomediated cytotoxic activity of gliadin-derived peptides on the jejunal/duodenal tract cannot be excluded. In this work, considering that (a) little has been reported about the intracellular metabolic events associated with gliadin toxicity, and (b) an important role for free radicals in a number of gastrointestinal disease has been demonstrated, we investigated the in vitro effects of gliadin-derived peptides on redox metabolism of Caco-2 intestinal cells during a kinetic study in which cells were exposed to peptic-tryptic digest of bread wheal up to 48 h. We found that the antiproliferative effects displayed by gliadin exposure was associated with intracellular oxidative imbalance, characterized by an increased presence of lipid peroxides, an augmented oxidized (GSSC)/reduced (GSH) glutathione ratio and a loss in protein-bound sulfhydryl groups. Significant structural perturbations of the cell plasma membrane were also detected. Additional experiments performed by using the specific GSH-depleting agent buthionine sulfoximine provide evidence that the extent of gliadin-induced cell growth arrest critically depends upon the basal redox profile of the enterocytes. On the whole, these findings seem to suggest that, besides the adoption of a strictly gluten-free diet, the possibility for an adjuvant therapy with antioxidants may be considered for celiac disease patients.

Both sets are made on shared lines. That was the point of my response. Many people have gotten sick from Gluten free products from Frito Lay.

Welcome! I can not answer your question, but genetic testing is used as a last resource for ruling OUT celiac disease. Normally, while on a gluten diet, a person is tested for antibodies (just like you can test antibodies (different ones) for lupus, thyroid or type 1 diabetes (blood test)....

Ravenwood may be on to something there. Check out the Mayo clinic link for more info on Raynauds syndrome. Raynaud's Syndrome is another autoimmune condition as is celiac disease. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/raynauds-disease/symptoms-causes/syc-20363571 Raynaud's (r...

Yes, the second half of the list are possibly made on shared machinery. The ones labeled gluten free are not. And they are tested for Gluten.

Can you get a copy of your bloodwork and the results and ranges so we can tell what has already been run? We have some folks really knowledgable about lab work that might be able to give some insight or let you know what other tests to have your doctor run. I agree with Ennis that this should be...
