Do you have non-celiac gluten sensitivity?

You may be one of the millions of people who don't have celiac disease, but know that gluten bothers your system.


  • Do not diagnose yourself with NCGS or celiac disease. A gastroenterologist will help you make a correct diagnosis.
  • Do not start a gluten-free diet if you suspect NCGS. You must be tested while still eating gluten to determine the correct diagnosis.
  • It is highly recommended to schedule a visit with a registered dietitian to gain knowledge about the gluten-free diet.
