Non Celiac Gluten sensitivity (NCGS) was originally described in the 1980s and recently a “re-discovered” disorder characterized by intestinal and extra-intestinal symptoms related to the ingestion of gluten-containing food, in subjects that are not affected with either celiac disease (CD) or wheat allergy (WA). Although NCGS frequency is still unclear, epidemiological data have been generated that can help establishing the magnitude of the problem. Clinical studies further defined the identity…

Non-celiac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS).

The manifestations of NCGS are focused on, areas of controversy, major advances and future trends will be discussed, and the possibility that, beside gluten and wheat amylase-trypsin inhibitors (ATI), low-fermentable, poorly-absorbed, short-chain carbohydrates can contribute to symptoms experienced by NCGS patients is raised.

Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity

Evidence on epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and dietary interventions in non-celiac gluten sensitivity is updated, stressing the need of thorough screening for CD before a diagnosis of NCGS is given, considering that natural history and dietary restriction for both entities are radically different.

New evidence shows that a gluten-free diet may be beneficial for some patients with gastrointestinal symptoms, such as those symptoms commonly found in patients with IBS.

Non-coeliac gluten sensitivity and the spectrum of gluten-related disorders: an updated overview

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.

Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity

Direct implication of gluten in the onset of symptoms is often unproved as a low fermentable oligo-, di- and mono-saccharides and polyols diet or other components of cereals as wheat amylase trypsin inhibitor could be similarly involved.

The diagnosis of NCGS should be considered in patients with persistent intestinal and/or extraintestinal complaints showing a normal result of the CD and WA serological markers on a gluten-containing diet, usually reporting worsening of symptoms after eating gluten-rich food.

Extra-intestinal manifestations of non-celiac gluten sensitivity: An expanding paradigm

An autoimmune stigma in NCGS is strongly supported; it could be a characteristic feature that could help the diagnosis and be simultaneously managed and a link with functional disorders (irritable bowel syndrome and fibromyalgia) is a topic under discussion.

Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity and Irritable Bowel Disease: Looking for the Culprits

In both disorders, FODMAPs and ATIs trigger gut dysbiosis, suggesting that gluten may not be the culprit, and microbiota manipulations can be applied in diagnostic and intervention approaches.



Spectrum of gluten-related disorders: consensus on new nomenclature and classification

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.

Editorial: Non-Celiac Wheat Sensitivity: Separating the Wheat from the Chat!

In this month's edition of the American Journal of Gastroenterology, evidence is seen to support the clinical concept of wheat sensitivity or intolerance that may be adopted internationally by clinicians.

Absence of somatization in non-coeliac gluten sensitivity

Non-coeliac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) patients did not exhibit a tendency for general somatization, and personality and quality of life did not differ between NCGS and CD patients, and were mostly at the same level as in healthy controls.

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.

Non-Celiac Wheat Sensitivity Diagnosed by Double-Blind Placebo-Controlled Challenge: Exploring a New Clinical Entity

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.

Serological Tests in Gluten Sensitivity (Nonceliac Gluten Intolerance)

The serological pattern of GS is characterized by IgG AGA positivity in more than half of cases associated to IgA AGA in a few patients, but without EmA, tTGA, and DGP-AGA, which are the specific markers of celiac disease.

Markers of Celiac Disease and Gluten Sensitivity in Children with Autism

The increased anti-gliadin antibody response and its association with GI symptoms points to a potential mechanism involving immunologic and/or intestinal permeability abnormalities in affected children.

Coeliac disease and gluten avoidance in New Zealand children

The predictors of glutenavoidance in children without doctor-diagnosed CD suggest important regional differences in community belief or medical practice regarding implementation of gluten avoidance and the contributory role of non-specific subjective abdominal complaints.

Prevalence of celiac disease and gluten sensitivity in the United States clinical antipsychotic trials of intervention effectiveness study population.

Celiac disease (CD) and schizophrenia have approximately the same prevalence, but epidemiologic data show higher prevalence of CD among schizophrenia patients. The reason for this higher
