Removing Gluten Beneficial to Those Without Celiac Disease



The Monash University Department of Medicine and Gastroenterology has completed an incredible study about gluten intolerance in people WITHOUT celiac disease. The study set out to determine if eating gluten would induce symptoms in people without gluten intolerance.

In the experiment, 34 subjects who suffered from gastrointestinal issues, but did not have celiac disease, were split into one of two groups. Group 1 ate completely gluten free, but were given a placebo gluten free muffin or bread. Group 2 had their muffin or bread with added wheat gluten.

68% of people in the gluten eating group reported gastrointestinal symptoms, versus 40% of the non-gluten group. “Patients were significantly worse with gluten within 1 week for overall symptoms” according to the experiments results.

This serves as more evidence that limiting or eliminating gluten, and living a low carbohydrate lifestyle, has many positive effects. People who suffer GI issues would be wise to go gluten free for a month and check their results.

  1. My parents have been eating gluten free for 6 years. During high school I was mostly gluten free because of that. Then I went off to college. What’s interesting is there was definite change. Hard to know if it was the addition of gluten alone but I was much more fatigued, and had some terrible GI issues freshman year. I’ve since switched back to gluten free, and I must say things are better. So, I’d agree with this study 🙂

    I think it would be better to start cutting gluten consumption as early as possible. This will prevent more complications to hit oneself. In my case, I didn’t know I have gluten-intolerance until I experienced symptoms.

    This is really good news to those who suffer from the disease.

    I’ve been gluten free for five years now and I’m really happy with my health. Also, I want to add that there are many studies showing that gluten also increases a general inflammation in our bodies. So, I think that is one important factor when feeling “clearer” with gluten free diet.

    Well, I don’t like disease much. They are very dangerous, and cannot stand it. 🙁

    subjects who suffered from gastrointestinal issues, but did not have celiac
    disease, were split into one of two groups. Group 1

    Diet modifications are great but we have to make sure it’s advantageous to us. Better consult your fitness trainer or nutritionist before trying to do things on your own especially with your diet.
