Gluten Intolerance May Not Be Celiac Disease
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.
