Gluten Digestion for Individuals with Celiac and Non-celiac Gluten Sensitivity

Many people chose to adhere to a gluten-free diet for health reasons. Celiac disease is one reason why gluten must be avoided, but individuals with other autoimmune conditions and non-celiac gluten sensitivity also have health issues which are improved if they avoid consumption of gluten.  Read Dr. Decker's contribution concerning gluten digestion in the face of inadvertent exposure to the educational resource Clinical Education.

Clinical studies concerning non-Celiac gluten sensitivity

Many studies have demonstrated that non-Celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) is significantly related to various health conditions, however others have also shown no relationship... NCGS is characterized (in individuals for which Celiac disease has been excluded) by symptoms which occur after gluten ingestion, are improved (within hours or days) after elimination, with relapse following gluten introduction.
