Background:

Celiac disease (CD), non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS), and wheat allergy (WA) represent a spectrum of immune-mediated reactions to wheat and, in some cases, specifically gluten, a protein composite of gliadin and gluten in. Once believed to be relatively rare, particularly in the US, it is now thought that gluten-related disorders affect nearly 10% of the population. Although the genetic association, environmental triggers, and autoantibodies produced in CD have been identified, the pathophysiology of NCGS is unclear. The extensive clinical variability appreciated in WA further adds to the intrigue of this major food staple.

Join Lynn DeBuhr Johnson and Diane Letchworth, CGP, as they discuss some answers to wheat and gluten sensitivity and some of the confusion out there around the topic.
