Frequently Asked Questions


Could an extended daily use of a high dose of non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) be a trigger for celiac disease?

Possibly. A number of stresses can trigger the appearance of celiac disease, and prolonged NSAIDs (due to a negative effect on the GI tract lining) could conceivably be one of those stress factors. However, there is no literature on this. January, 2013
