There is a gluten sensitivity that is different from celiac disease and also from wheat allergy, but because its symptoms are similar to the former, it is still difficult to diagnose. It is actually a rediscovered disease, the first description of which dates back to the 1980s.
Its symptoms are similar to autoimmune celiac disease but are milder and appear a few hours after consuming a gluten-containing food. An important difference is that in case of NCGS, the small intestine is not damaged, there are no associated diseases, there is no genetic difference, so it cannot be detected by traditional celiac examination methods, their results will be negative. The causes are still unknown.
If someone has regular problems with abdominal pain, diarrhoea, and bloating, you should also keep in mind that your complaints may be related to eating, consuming gluten-containing foods. However, it is important not to start a gluten-free diet in case of suspicion, as this may give a false result in the investigation. Visit a gastroenterology clinic, where the specialist will make the diagnosis after a thorough examination and after the exclusion of other possible diseases (celiac disease, IBS).
With proper food intake, eliminating gluten-containing foods can resolve unpleasant symptoms
