Dr. Barry Sears Dr. Sears Comments:

If you are a true celiac patient (about 1% of the population), then you have an auto-immune disease and must avoid gluten.  On the other hand, if you “gluten sensitive,”  it is more likely that you are FODMAP (fermentable oligo, di, monosacharide and polyalcohol) sensitive.  It has been shown that gluten-sensitive subjects are really FODMAP sensitive.   The gastric results are the same, but the molecular cause is different.
