The overlap of irritable bowel syndrome and noncoeliac gluten sensitivity

Purpose of review There has been significant interest in gluten over the last decade, with an increase in interest of gluten-related disorders outside coeliac disease. Particularly, there has been a focus on the role of gluten in noncoeliac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). There is significant overlap between both of these conditions, with the aim of this review to explore their complex relationship. Recent findings Gluten has been demonstrated to generate symptoms in individuals with NCGS. However, there appears to be an increasing role for gluten in symptom generation in patients with IBS also. Other components of wheat, other than gluten, are now also thought to be contributing factors in symptom generation. Summary There appears to be significant overlap between IBS and NCGS. It is likely that a subset of patients presenting with IBS actually have NCGS. In addition, it is likely that individuals with IBS may also have symptoms triggered by gluten. With the pathophysiology of both conditions not fully understood, as well as increasing knowledge of wheat components in symptom generation, further research is required to help distinguish between both.

Publication date: Available online 22 July 2019Source: Best Practice &Research Clinical GastroenterologyAuthor(s): Greger LindbergAbstractNew diagnostic techniques have advanced our knowledge about the irritable bowel syndrome. The majority of patients that we believed to have a psychosomatic disorder have received other diagnoses explaining their symptoms. Endoscopy makes it possible to diagnose celiac disease before it leads to malnutrition and allows the detection of microscopic colitis as a cause of watery diarrhea. At the severe end of the symptom spectrum enteric dysmotility marks the border at which IBS ceases t...

Gluten? Lactose? Stomach pain? Digestive troubles? Way too many people suffer from gastrointestinal issues, and much less are aware of the digital technologies that can come to their aid. Did you know that digestibles could successfully replace the dreaded colonoscopy? Or have you heard about microbiome testing? What about the swarm of health apps supporting dietary restrictions? We took a deep breath and jumped into the universe of digital technologies just to bring you as much information about the future of gastroenterology as possible. Will you jump after us?

Gastrointestinal symptoms are common in endometriosis, but the mechanisms behind these symptoms are yet poorly understood. Associations between endometriosis and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), celiac disease, and various autoimmune diseases have been reported. These diseases express characteristic autoantibodies. The aim of the current study was to investigate autoantibodies against gonadotropin-releasing hormone 1 (GnRH1) and luteinizing hormone (LH) and their receptors, tenascin-C, matrix metalloproteinase-9, deamidated gliadin peptide, and tissue transglutaminase in a cohort of women with endometriosis, compared to con...

Authors: El-Salhy M, Gilja OH, Hatlebakk JG Abstract Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) overlap. It is not clear whether GERD is caused by non‑erosive esophagitis, or erosive esophagitis. The Rome criteria are not widely used for the diagnosis of IBS in the clinic. In total, 1,489 IBS patients without red flags were included in the present retrospective study. They comprised of 1,331 females and 158 males with a mean age of 51 years. The diagnosis of IBS was verified by endoscopic and histopathological examinations. Whereas erosive esophagitis occurred in 97% of patient...

By just engaging in the basic strategies in the Wheat Belly Total Health, Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox, or Undoctored programs, many mild cases of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, SIBO, reverse. These efforts thereby restore your ability to ingest prebiotic fibers without diarrhea, bloating, gas, abdominal discomfort, joint pain, and dark emotional feelings. Many people thereby are relieved of irritable bowel syndrome symptoms, fibromyalgia, or restless leg syndrome, or have greater power in reversing autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. Unfortunately, not everybody enjoys reversal of SIBO with our b...
