Gluten not impactful in IBS

This study measured markers of epithelial injury (syndecan-1) including bacterial translocation from 82 IBS sufferers. All participants were administered a low FODMAP diet. One group was administered a gluten‐free diet, during blinded challenges with gluten or a placebo. Results found that colonic epithelial injury is reduced when gluten and low FODMAP diets are observed simultaneously, whilst a gluten free diet alone did not reduce such markers. This implicates FODMAPs in epithelial injury in IBS.
