The avoidance of wheat- and gluten-containing products is a worldwide phenomenon. While celiac disease is a well-established entity, the evidence base for gluten as a trigger of symptoms in patients without celiac disease (so-called ‘non-celiac gluten sensitivity’ or NCGS) is limited. The problems lie in the complexity of wheat and the ability of its carbohydrate as well as protein components to trigger gastrointestinal symptoms, the potentially false assumption that response to a gluten-free… Expand
Non-celiac gluten sensitivity: a work-in-progress entity in the spectrum of wheat-related disorders.
TLDR
Although currently limited to a research setting, double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over trial strategy is recommended to confirm the diagnosis of non-celiac gluten sensitivity, which occurs mainly in young women, being rare in children. Expand
Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity
Non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) is a resurfaced emerging disorder characterized by intestinal and extra-intestinal symptoms related to the ingestion of gluten-containing food in subjects notExpand
Non-coeliac gluten sensitivity and the spectrum of gluten-related disorders: an updated overview
TLDR
There is inconsistent evidence when evaluating the effects of a gluten challenge in patients with suspected NCGS and there is a need for a standardised procedure to confirm the diagnosis, ultimately enabling the optimisation of clinical care. Expand
A Clinical Update: Nonceliac Gluten Sensitivity-Is It Really the Gluten?
TLDR
The range of gluten and/or wheat disorders, clinical features, diagnosis, and management can be confusing and this article clarifies that these forms of intolerance combined affect approximately 10% of the US population. Expand
Non-celiac wheat sensitivity: rationality and irrationality of a gluten-free diet in individuals affected with non-celiac disease: a review
TLDR
The most recent advances in the clinic and research on non-celiac gluten or wheat sensitivity are summarized, with particular attention to the Salerno criteria for the diagnosis of NCWS and the histological aspects. Expand
Assessing of Celiac Disease and Nonceliac Gluten Sensitivity
TLDR
The assessment of nonceliac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) will require extensive knowledge of celiac disease manifestations and the laboratory tests commonly performed during diagnosis of Celiac disease. Expand
Gluten-free diet in non-celiac patients: beliefs, truths, advantages and disadvantages.
TLDR
Questions about the appropriateness of following this trend are highlighted answering to some questions such as how safe are the current gluten-free products, what are the benefits and side effects of gluten- free diet and what are clinical conditions that might benefit from gluten avoidance. Expand
Nutrition in Celiac Disease
TLDR
There are defined new clinical entities of gluten intolerance, especially non-celiac gluten sensitivity, but its differentiation from irritable bowel syndrome is very difficult, and this issue will require further research. Expand
Prospects of Developing Medicinal Therapeutic Strategies and Pharmaceutical Design for Effective Gluten Intolerance Treatment.
TLDR
The understanding of gluten-related disorders, possible mechanisms of gluten intolerance activation and advantages of glutenolerance medicinal treatment using novel drug candidates obtained with a proper pharmaceutical design are summarized. Expand
Reactivity to dietary gluten: new insights into differential diagnosis among gluten‑related gastrointestinal disorders.
TLDR
The current tools to identify patients suffering from WA, CD, and NCGS are discussed, as well as the most recent insights in the differential diagnosis among these gluten‑related gastrointestinal disorders. Expand

The immunology of gluten sensitivity: beyond the gut.
TLDR
The systemic nature of this disease, the overwhelming evidence of an immune pathogenesis and the accumulating evidence of diverse manifestations involving organs other than the gut necessitates a re-evaluation of the belief that gluten sensitivity is solely a disease of the gut. Expand
Celiac disease
TLDR
Diagnosis requires endoscopy with jejunal biopsy and tissue-transglutaminase antibodies are important to confirm the diagnosis since there are other diseases which can mimic celiac disease. Expand
ACG Clinical Guidelines: Diagnosis and Management of Celiac Disease
TLDR
Given the incomplete response of many patients to a GFD-free diet as well as the difficulty of adherence to the GFD over the long term, development of new effective therapies for symptom control and reversal of inflammation and organ damage are needed. Expand
No effects of gluten in patients with self-reported non-celiac gluten sensitivity after dietary reduction of fermentable, poorly absorbed, short-chain carbohydrates.
TLDR
In a placebo-controlled, cross-over rechallenge study, there is no evidence of specific or dose-dependent effects of gluten in patients with NCGS placed diets low in FODMAPs. Expand
Spectrum of gluten-related disorders: consensus on new nomenclature and classification
TLDR
This review will summarize the current knowledge about the three main forms of gluten reactions: allergic (wheat allergy), autoimmune (celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis and gluten ataxia) and possibly immune-mediated (gluten sensitivity), and also outline pathogenic, clinical and epidemiological differences and propose new nomenclature and classifications.

TLDR
It was concluded from this study that non coeliac gluten intolerance affected some patients and could be successfully treated by diet but the mechanisms responsible for producing ill-health were unknown. Expand
Predictors of clinical response to gluten-free diet in patients diagnosed with diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome.
TLDR
C celiac disease-associated serum IgG and HLA-DQ2 expression can identify likely responders to gluten-free diet in d-IBS patients. Expand
Non-Celiac Wheat Sensitivity Diagnosed by Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Challenge: Exploring a New Clinical Entity
TLDR
The existence of non-celiac wheat sensitivity is demonstrated and the existence of two distinct populations of subjects with WS are suggested: one with characteristics more similar to CD and the other with characteristics pointing to food allergy. Expand

Eight adult female patients suffering from abdominal pain and chronic diarrhea which was often incapacitating and frequently nocturnal, had dramatic relief on a gluten-free diet and return ofExpand
Overweight in Celiac Disease: Prevalence, Clinical Characteristics, and Effect of a Gluten-Free Diet
TLDR
Few celiac patients are underweight at diagnosis and a large minority is overweight; these are less likely to present with classical features of diarrhea and reduced hemoglobin, and the gluten-free diet as conventionally prescribed needs to be modified accordingly. Expand
