It is very common for patients with celiac disease to report recurrent or persistent signs and symptoms despite carefully following a gluten-free diet. These include gas, bloating, diarrhea, cramping, constipation, and fatigue to name a few. While the most frequent continued reason for symptoms is gluten exposure, there are multiple other potential causes which should be considered such as small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, microscopic colitis, malabsorption of fermentable carbohydrates and other food intolerances, as well as refractory celiac disease. In this module we will outline and assess the suggested evaluation and treatments for NRCD. We will also explore the development of future alternative treatment research options for celiac disease.
