Testing & Diagnosis
Non-celiac gluten sensitivity ('gluten sensitivity') is a non-specific immune response to gluten that presents with symptoms similar to celiac disease. According to preliminary research, gluten sensitivity does not result in damage to the intestine. Research is conflicting, but it has been estimated that up to 6% of the American population has this condition. Researchers don’t fully understand the long-term effects of gluten sensitivity, but a gluten-free diet is the current recommended treatment.
