    Following this finding on T. gondii infection and subsequent gluten sensitivity, there is a lot more on food reactions and gut damage during or following various infections.

    This paper is extremely interesting, about celiac-related antibodies produced in children with viral infections. Full paper --- it mentions high prevalence of immune reactivity during EBV/mononucleosis ...

    There is also loads on gluten (and dairy!) reactivity in HIV infection:

    High levels of anti-gliadin antibodies in HIV-infected children.

    etc, many others

    Thanks. I'm interested in learning more about how our villi work.

    I was dx as a celiac in 2007 based on my
    Dq2 gene, gut damage post gf diet and reaction to gf diet. My ex gp and ex gastroenterologist missed looking for this before I went gf. I'm sure my tests prior to going gf would've explained a lot.

    Not that I think only celiacs need to avoid gluten. Recent research is showing gluten damages more than just out villi.

    I ate gluten for 50 years and had week long bouts where I coudn't eat anything except boost or ensure and eat gluten
    filled bread. I'm surprised that I could eat bread.
