Can Celiac Disease Be Related To Small Bowl Obstruction?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been gluten free since February 2012 after a biopsy diagnosed celiac disease. Recently, I experience stomach pain that was so intense (nothing like I had ever experienced before) and went to urgent care where they then rushed me to the emergency room and I was admitted to the hospital with a diagnosis of a small bowl obstruction.

Reading about small bowl obstructions, a main risk factor is a prior stomach surgery which I have never had. So I was wondering if celiac disease could have been the cause.

They also said my tests showed my small intestine was twisted, could this have also been related to celiac disease.
