Celiac disease

I've read that the gut produces more Serotonin than the brain. I suffer of Celiac (extreme diarrhea) According to the article, Serotonin in the gut causes diarrhea. Is there any medication to lower the production of Serotonin in the gut? I feel so helpless, because I do not respond well to a gluten free diet - still diarrhea. I have developed Osteoporosis (I am only 28) because of malabsorption and use Imodium (handsful) I follow my diet very strictly to prevent cross-contamination, but results very poor. PLEASE HELP ME!!

Yes, more serotonin is indeed found in the gut. Currently no such treatment is available.
