We’ve all met people who say they can’t eat gluten, but don’t have celiac disease. If you’ve been wondering whether non-celiac gluten sensitivity is real, you’re not alone. The term non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) has been used to describe individuals who cannot tolerate gluten and experience symptoms similar to those with celiac disease, but yet lack the same antibodies and intestinal damage as seen in celiac disease. We asked Dr. Joseph Murray, M.D., to further elaborate on an article published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, which features the latest clinical trial investigating the evolving phenomenon of non-celiac gluten sensitivity.
