New Study: Most People Who Thought They Were Sensitive To Gluten, Weren’t

GlutenFreeThis new study asked … How many people who complain of gluten insensitivity are really sensitive to gluten? Not many, they found:

Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity Aong Patients Perceiving Gluten-Related Symptoms, Digestion, 30 May 2015

CONCLUSION: Eighty six percent of patients reporting gluten-related symptoms have neither non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), nor celic disease, nor wheat allergy. Self-perceived gluten-related symptoms are rarely indicative of the presence of NCGS.

86% of people who thought they were sensitive to gluten, weren’t. That’s something. If it’s not gluten, what is it?

    Just going along with a fad? Neurosis? A desire to draw attention to oneself or to spend twice as much money at the market, given the cost of gluten-free products?

    I remember a few studies that found high levels of pesticides in bread and bagels and other things made with wheat. Also mustard, but people don’t eat much mustard. Wheat kernels (and mustard seeds) have a high surface area on which to collect things sprayed on them. Maybe it’s something else?
