%Ma, %La, La/Ma, and %Su in HC, D-IBS, and CD patients. %Ma = Percentage of ingested mannitol recovered in urine. B %La = Percentage of ingested lactulose recovered in urine; C La/Ma = lactulose to mannitol ratio;  D %Su = Percentage of ingested sucrose recovered in urine. HC = Healthy controls. D-IBS = diarrhoea-predominant IBS. CD = celiac disease. Data are expressed as Mean ± SEM and analysed by Kruskal-Wallis test with Dunn’s Multiple Comparison Test. Means sharing the same superscript are not significantly different from each other (p < 0.05, Dunn’s test)
