Gluten sensitivity or gluten intolerance is a syndrome in which people suffer unpleasant symptoms that improve when gluten is removed from their diet. Researchers at Columbia University have discovered unique markers for gluten sensitivity that differ from celiac disease.
The key to determining if you have a sensitivity to gluten is seeing if your symptoms improve after eliminating all gluten from your diet. This means removing all grains and ensuring there isn't cross-contact with gluten in products.

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that affects one in every 140 people.
Many people who suffer from gluten intolerance or celiac disease face skepticism over the validity of their condition. But researchers are unlocking the secrets of our complex gut microbiome and the detrimental effects of wheat and grains on our health.
In a healthy small intestine, tiny hair-like "villi" absorb the nutrients we need from our from food.
For celiac sufferers, the immune system reacts to gluten (proteins found in wheat, barley and other grains) by destroying these villi in the small intestine that absorbs these vital nutrients.
Many of the symptoms people suffer from are caused by the nutritional deficiencies, not the gluten directly.
