Prevalence of IBS in Celiac Disease

March 28, 2013

Reporting in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Anita Sainsbury and colleagues determined that celiac disease patients, especially those that do not adhere to a gluten-free diet, are likely to experience IBS-type symptoms.

Patients with celiac disease often report symptoms compatible with IBS. However, the prevalence of these symptoms in patients with celiac disease and their relation to adherence to a gluten-free diet have not been assessed systematically. Anita Sainsbury and colleagues searched MEDLINE, Embase and Embase Classic to identify cross-sectional surveys or case-control studies reporting prevalence of IBS-type symptoms in adult patients with established celiac disease. Publishing in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, they report that IBS-type symptoms occur frequently in patients with celiac disease. They also report a trend toward a higher odds ratio for IBS-type symptoms among patients who did not adhere to the gluten-free diet.
