Systematic review to determine a safe level of gluten for people with coeliac disease
The final report of the ‘Systematic Review of Safe Level of Gluten for People with Coeliac Disease (2016)’ was published earlier this year.
Publisher: Cochrane, Australia Date: February 2016
Summary: Systematic review to determine if there is a threshold level of intake of gluten that is safe for people with coeliac disease to consume.
The review compared 18 studies involving 1754 participants; nine were intervention studies, and nine were observational.
The review concluded,
“In the absence of larger randomised trials that compare small amounts of gluten intake, the current evidence precludes establishing a definitive threshold level of gluten that is safe for all people with coeliac disease to consume.”
