Benicar misdiagnosed as celiac disease lawsuits are being filed for consumers who took this dangerous medication. Benicar is a drug used to lower blood pressure.
There have been increasing complaints about Benicar being misdiagnosed as celiac disease. Benicar blocks receptors on cells that bind to a protein called Angiotensin II that increases blood pressure.
Benicar can cause or increase the risk of sprue-like enteropathy, a condition that is misdiagnosed as celiac disease. How Benicar causes sprue-like enteropathy is not completely understood, but it causes villous atrophy, which occurs when the cell lining the intestine begins to shrink, impairing nutrient absorption. This can lead to chronic diarrhea and rapid weight loss. These symptoms are similar to celiac disease, which leads to the misdiagnosis. People can be on Benicar for months or years before suffering and it is often misdiagnosed as celiac disease.
