Present in vitro proton NMR study demonstrated the metabolic changes associated with villous abnormalities and its recovery following gluten free diet (GFD) in patients with Celiac disease (CeD). The concentration of glutamate and glutamine was significantly reduced in intestinal mucosa of CeD patients after GFD, indicating the use of these metabolites as oxidative fuels for energy generation. The level of glycerophosphocholine was significantly increased after GFD in CeD patients suggesting increased turnover of enterocytes essential for healing of intestinal mucosa in CeD patients. The results may have implications in determining the alternative biomarker/s for diagnosis and treatment management of CeD.
