A girl with celiac disease and KCNJ11 mutation was transferred to glibenclamide when 19.8 years old. When her compliance to the gluten free diet worsened, her metabolic control deteriorated. Since glibenclamide is absorbed in the intestine, its absorption seems to be impaired by chronic malabsorption, increasing the risk of hyperglycaemia.
