Dr. Michael Bays a gastroenterologist talks about how he feels Crohn’s disease and gluten could be linked in this Lee Memorial Health System video.
In an interview with host Linsey Fry, Bays explains that Crohn’s patients should get themselves tested for celiac disease and even if they are not celiac, that they should adopt a gluten-free diet to help relieve them of the painful symptoms associated with Crohn’s disease.
There have been many studies which indicate that gluten and wheat could either be a cause of inflammatory bowel disease or certainly aggravate the symptoms of the disease, including this one which found that a wheat protein called amylase-trypsin inhibitors (ATIs) could be linked to the development of inflammatory bowel disease.
