A clinical update: Nonceliac gluten sensitivity-is it really the gluten?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Gluten-free diets are increasing in popularity among consumers and fueling a global market of gluten-free products. A gluten-free diet is the only treatment for celiac disease (CD). However, many patients are self-reporting and suspecting "gluten sensitivity" after gastrointestinal symptoms, such as bloating, abdominal pain, or diarrhea, resolve on a gluten-free diet without formal evaluation testing for food allergies or CD. The terms related to gluten and/or wheat intolerance, nonceliac gluten sensitivity or wheat sensitivity, CD, and wheat allergy can be confusing. These forms of intolerance combined affect approximately 10% of the United States population. In this article we clarify the range of gluten and/or wheat disorders, clinical features, diagnosis, and management.
