Gluten makes you sick.
But your doctor says you aren’t celiac. Could you have gluten intolerance?
Proper testing for allergies and sensitivities is complicated. There are other proteins you may be reacting to in wheat. Standard testing only looks for a reaction to one protein – gluten. However there are more than half a dozen others that you may be reacting to!
Unfortunately, conventional medicine doctors only check for celiac disease.
Non-celiac gluten intolerance
There is a condition, known as non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), that is just as harmful as celiac disease. Yet functional medicine practitioners are the only specialists who test for it.
NCGS is an immune reaction to one of the other proteins found in wheat.
It can cause a range of symptoms, some of which are very similar to celiac disease:
- Abdominal bloating and pain
- Chronic diarrhea
- Weight loss
