Who should be on a gluten-free diet?

Individuals who have celiac disease require a gluten-free diet for health reasons. Ingestion of gluten in these individuals causes an adverse reaction which damages intestinal cells and can lead to serious health problems.

People who experience an adverse reaction to gluten but who do not have celiac disease may have non-celiac gluten sensitivity (also called “gluten sensitivity”). In this condition the problems caused by gluten are not thought to be as extensive as in celiac disease, but for both conditions the treatment is a gluten-free diet.

It’s estimated that in the U.S. approximately 1 in 100 people have celiac disease. The prevalence of non-celiac gluten sensitivity is not established but may be significantly higher. Only about 17% of people with celiac disease have been diagnosed.
