Intestinal Permeability in Patients with Celiac Disease on a Gluten-free Diet

Dig Dis Sci. 2005 Apr;50(4):785-90.

Celiac.com 05/09/2005 – To determine the effect a long-term gluten-free diet has on intestinal permeability in those with celiac disease, Canadian researchers divided celiac disease patients into three groups based on the length of time on a gluten-free diet: Group A less than 1 month; Group B, 1 month-1 year; Group C more than 1 year. Groups B and C were tested three times over the course of 12 weeks for lactulose/mannitol intestinal permeability, endomysial antibody, and 3-day food record. These results were compared to that of Group A and control subjects. The researchers found that intestinal permeability was elevated in those newly diagnosed with celiac disease and in those who were on a gluten-free diet for less than one year. They also found that it increased in those on a gluten-free diet for more than one year in those whose diets were contaminated with gluten. The researchers conclude that intestinal permeability normalizes in most people with celiac disease on a gluten-free diet, and gluten ingestion as determined by a 3 day food record correlates with intestinal permeability measurements. Further studies need to be done on the role of intestinal permeability testing in the follow-up care of those with celiac disease.

The study did not include intestinal permeability findings for longterm celiacs.

Even on what one would hope is a strict gluten-free diet, as celiacs age I have reason to suspect injury to the intestine from the minutest of gluten--from ingestion to exposure to non-celiacs--contributes to intestinal permeability and increased malabsorption.

Before ordering the endoscopy, you would think they would order the complete celiac panel. Not all celiacs (like me) ever get a positive TTG (I do test positive to the DGP, but negative to the EMA and TTG). You would think that the additional blood tests would be way more cost effective than go...

Hello linzk8! I would suggest you to go with natural foods as you are allergic to latex. One of my friends had the same problem. She also had latex allergic. She used Indian nuts to lose weight purchased from the official site of Nuez Dela India and achieved a success. You can also check the same...

My family visited Peru (my 13 year old has celiac) last Christmas, and we found Peru rather gluten free friendly. Peru is the land of corn and potatoes, and they have lots of grill meats. Their cooking ingredients tend to be naturally gluten-free. We did the 4 day Inca trail hike to Mach...

Most physicians follow the joint commission?s guidelines on prescribing HTN medications which usually begin with a diuretic and calcium channel blocker (the amlodipine) - see below. Is it possible that your bp was still not controlled on the CCB (amlodipine)? So the ARB was added? Again, I?d just...

Plumbago et al, Thanks for letting me know about the "artan" drugs being ARBs. I think Cyclinglady was right the Losartan research is not free and thus not public. I saw the link with no abstract but wanted to read it to confirm as you noted in your ETA that it was another "Artan"...
