Non-Responsive Celiac Disease

Ever heard of non-responsive Celiac Disease?   I hadn’t until I read a little about it over at   Apparently a recent study used lactulose hydrogen-breath assays to show that small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is likely a routine cause of non-responsive celiac disease.

Most people probably won’t have any interest in this article, as it has a lot of medical jargon in it, but I know we have some medical professionals that read this site, so I figured I would make everyone aware of it.  Here are the results of the study:

The results showed that nearly 1 in 10 celiac patients had SIBO as diagnosed by quantitative culture of intestinal aspirate (9.3%). This figure included both patients with symptomatic treated or untreated CD. This shows that SIBO may exist along with other maladies associated with non-responsive celiac disease.
