Symptoms of Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity

Symptoms of Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity

If you have been suffering from symptoms after ingesting gluten, it may be possible that you have non-celiac gluten sensitivity (‘gluten sensitivity’ or sometimes referred to as ‘gluten intolerance’).

Gluten sensitivity is a disorder where one cannot tolerate gluten and experience symptoms similar to those with celiac disease yet lack the same antibodies and intestinal damage as seen in celiac disease.

A diagnosis distinguishing between celiac disease, a wheat allergy and gluten sensitivity is important, a fact highlighted in a recent study showing the impact correct diagnosis has on long-term treatment. Your doctor can run the test. It’s important to not go gluten-free prior to laboratory tests, so that tests for celiac disease can be accurate. If your celiac disease tests come back negative but you’re still feeling symptoms you may have non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

Before going gluten-free, complete our celiac disease symptoms checklist and share the results with your doctor.
