More on Gluten Sensitivity and Irritable Bowel Syndrome

by   Gluten Free Society   on   January 22, 2010

The diagram to the right was recently published in the  American Journal of Gastroenterology.  The authors of the paper do an excellent job of illustrating the connection between gluten sensitivity and celiac disease with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

An article published last year  in the same journal reported on the need to perform  HLA-DQ genetic testing  in all patients with IBS to determine if gluten sensitivity is part of the disease progenitor.
