Gluten Sensitivity Symptoms​

Q: What are Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity Symptoms?

Brain fog, loss of concentration, and difficulty thinking all are much more commonly reported by those diagnosed with Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity than by those diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Non-celiac gluten sensitivity may be present in up to one-quarter of the people previously diagnosed with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Research indicates that Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitives, like Celiacs, may mal-absorb nutrients.  Celiac Disease and Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity both are associated with autoimmune conditions and elevated antinuclear antibody levels.

For a comparison of reported symptoms, see Celiac Support Group's Symptom Chart. Remember that Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity is a new medical concept in medicine, so additional symptoms or associations may later be added to the current list.

Q: Since both Celiac Disease and Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity require a gluten free diet, why do doctors have to rule out Celiac Disease first?

It’s important to know if Celiac Disease is present, because there can be major negative health consequences if Celiac Disease remains untreated or is incompletely treated. These risks don’t appear to apply to Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity.
