Gluten Intolerance May Not Be Celiac Disease

Posted:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

A new study shows people who do not have Celiac Disease may not be gluten intolerant after all.

A gastroenterology professor in Australia who's 2011 study brought to light what's called, non–Celiac gluten sensitivity, conducted another study.

He found people who said they were sensitive to gluten had gastrointestinal symptoms regardless of whether they were given a high or low gluten diet.

Researchers say the study shows gluten may not be the specific trigger of gastrointestinal problems, instead a diet high in carbohydrates called "fodmaps" may be to blame.
