Contrastvloeistof voor rontgenfoto kan gluten bevatten
« Gepost op: september 19, 2014, 09:04:08 »
Radiologen wijzen hun collega's erop dat de contrastvloeistof (met barium) die gebruikt wordt om röntgenfoto's te maken, gluten kan bevatten. Bij coeliakiepatienten die voor onderzoek een röntgenfoto moeten ondergaan en een contrastvloeistof innemen, is de aanwezigheid van gluten niet wenselijk. Het blijkt echter in de praktijk ingewikkeld om te achterhalen of ergens gluten in zit. Dit zou in de toekomst duidelijker op het etiket moeten komen.

Gluten content of barium sulfate suspensions used for barium swallows in patients with celiac disease.

Chiu JG, Shin Y, Patel PN, Mangione RA.


PURPOSE:

To determine the availability and accuracy of information provided by hospitals, imaging centers, and manufacturers regarding gluten in barium sulfate suspensions.

METHODS:

A total of 105 facilities were contacted via telephone to determine the gluten content of the contrast media used in those facilities. Manufacturers were contacted and their Web sites reviewed to determine the gluten content of their barium products.

RESULTS:

Thirty-nine percent of the hospitals and 52% of the imaging centers were not aware of the gluten content of the contrast media they used. Twenty-nine-and-a-half percent of the respondents provided the correct gluten content. The manufacturers noted that 5 products were tested and confirmed gluten free, 1 product was not tested but described as gluten free, 1 product's gluten content depended upon its flavor, and 1 product was reported to contain gluten.

DISCUSSION:

Clinicians caring for patients with celiac disease or patients who choose to restrict their gluten consumption must ensure that the barium sulfate suspension ingested is gluten free.

CONCLUSION:

It can be difficult to determine the gluten content of barium sulfate, as a majority of radiology departments and imaging centers did not know whether the product they use is gluten free. Educating staff members and improving product labeling would benefit the quality of care provided to patients with celiac disease.
