Metabonomics study on blood plasma of patients with Celiac disease (CeD) using NMR spectroscopy revealed gender and age specific variations. The concentrations of acetate, pyruvate, creatine and glycine were significantly higher in males with CeD compared to healthy males. While, levels of ╬▓-hydroxybutyrate, glycine and alanine were significantly elevated in females with CeD than healthy females. These metabolic differences indicated impairment in both catabolic and anabolic pathways of carbohydrate metabolism in CeD patients of both genders, however, fuel preference for energy requirement was gender specific, fatty acids were used in males while ketone bodies were preferred in females.
