High Incidence of Gluten Sensitivity in Individuals with Allergies

By Elaine Moore on 4/4/2011

Researchers from the University of Salento in Lecce Italy studied a group of 262 patients with allergies and non-specific gastrointestinal symptoms for evidence of gluten sensitivity. 77 patients showed gastric mucosal lesions on biopsy even without evidence of gliadin or transglutaminase antibodies. The most common symptom in these patients was an inflammatory anemia.

After following a gluten free diet, the patients had reduced gastrointestinal symptoms and improvement of anemia although they still had symptoms related to their allergies. The researchers concluded that patients with allergies should have biopsies so that affected individuals could get proper recommendations for a gluten-free diet.
