Fecal / Stool Transplant For Celiac Disease

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone out there gone through with a Fecal / Stool Transplant that has Celiac disease? If so, what were the outcomes?

I think it would be a great way to replace the good bacteria I have lost from countless rounds of antibiotics in my life. I think it could help with inflammation, food digestion, proper stool function, and possibly even improve mood, etc

You can google and read countless stories of those "out there" who have gone through this process and restored their digestive health...

I wondered about this as well and actually contacted Dr Borody's unit in Sydney that pioneered the whole approach. They said they do not treat celiacs with this, although did not confirm why this was.

I wondered whether the "host" donating the faeces would need to be eating a gluten free diet in order to avoid any inadvertent inflammatory damage. I would have thought this could be done perhaps just for a few days or something though?

It's an interesting thought isn't it..

I read, in a medical journal, about fecal transplant being very successful for ppl being treated for chronic D that is caused by major infections like C~Diff. Supposedly it helps repopulate the good bacteria that was lost during the illness. I guess in theory it would work for other ppl but.... : o I don't know if a non gluten-free fecal implant would hurt or help a celiac.
