Not much unless...: Gluten sensitive enteropathy is an inflammatory condition of the small bowel where its lining flattens after exposure to dietary gluten, with associated malabsorption, anemia, increased cancer risk.Gluten intolerance occurs in about 10% of americans who may get diarrhea after exceeding their threshold for gluten intake. Short of these patients, trying a gluten free diet is giving in to just a fad.
