Abstract:
Gluten Causes Gastrointestinal Symptoms in Subjects Without Celiac Disease: A Double-Blind Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trial – Source: American Journal of Gastroenterology, Jan 11, 2011

by Jessica R Biesiekierski, et al.

Objectives: Despite increased prescription of a gluten-free diet for gastrointestinal symptoms in individuals who do not have celiac disease, there is minimal evidence that suggests that gluten is a trigger.

The aims of this study were to determine whether gluten ingestion can induce symptoms in non-celiac individuals and to examine the mechanism.

Methods:
A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled rechallenge trial was undertaken in patients:

• With irritable bowel syndrome

• In whom celiac disease was excluded

• And who were symptomatically controlled on a gluten-free diet.

Participants received either gluten or placebo in the form of two bread slices plus one muffin per day with a gluten-free diet for up to 6 weeks.

Symptoms were evaluated using a visual analog scale and markers of intestinal inflammation, injury, and immune activation were monitored.

Results: A total of 34 patients (aged 29-59 years, 4 men) completed the study as per protocol. Overall, 56% had human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DQ2 and/or HLA-DQ8.

Adherence to diet and supplements was very high.

Of 19 patients in the gluten group, 13 (68%) reported that symptoms were not adequately controlled compared with 6 of 15 (40%) on placebo (P=0.0001; generalized estimating equation).

On a visual analog scale, patients were significantly worse with gluten within 1 week for:

• Overall symptoms (P=0.047),

• Pain (P=0.016),

• Bloating (P=0.031),

• Satisfaction with stool consistency (P=0.024),

• And tiredness (P=0.001).

Anti-gliadin antibodies were not induced. There were no significant changes in fecal lactoferrin, levels of celiac antibodies, highly sensitive C-reactive protein, or intestinal permeability. There were no differences in any end point in individuals with or without DQ2/DQ8.

Conclusions: "Non-celiac gluten intolerance" may exist, but no clues to the mechanism were elucidated.

gluten and leaky gut
Posted by: Sandy10m

This fact has been known for a while, since leaky gut is usually the underlying problem, and gluten getting into your blood stream can cause SERIOUS problems. Most MDs don't believe that a candida infection of the intestines can cause leaky gut, but I am living proof that it can. I was rigorously tested for candida during treatment, and my symptoms correlated directly with the test results. It took me a long time to figure out the secret combination to cure myself, but anyone can try the regimen. You should be able to cure your candida within 3 months. The 2 pieces of the puzzle are: Paleolithic (Caveman) diet, and oral powdered Nystatin (an antifungal prescription). I am candida free, IBS free, and gluten-intolerance free from doing this treatment. Good luck!
