Mannitol (molecular weight 182), lactulose (342), and polyethylene glycol 400 (range 242-550) absorption was studied in 25 controls, 22 untreated celiacs, and 13 treated celiacs. Untreated celiacs absorbed less mannitol and more lactulose than controls. Absorption of higher as well as lower molecular-weight polyethylene glycols was reduced in untreated celiac disease. Absorption returned towards normal on treatment. Polyethylene glycol and lactulose absorption was enhanced by administering them… CONTINUE READING
