New research suggests ongoing stomach trouble could be due to altered microbiota

Oftentimes, people with ongoing celiac disease symptoms are still being exposed to gluten. A recent study published in The American Journal of Gastroenterology, however, notes that altered microbiota is seen in people with celiac disease who are on a strict gluten-free diet, but still experiencing gastrointestinal issues.

According to the researchers, “Further studies are warranted to confirm our results and possibly to find applications for alleviating the symptoms of this specific patient subgroup by intestinal microbiota modulation.”
