It is the same thing. It is all gluten intolerance, but has been called many things. Celiac Disease, Celiac Sprue, Non-tropical Sprue, Gluten Intolerance, Gluten Sensitivity, these are just a few of the most common names. It doesn't really matter what you call it, it just means your body can't digest gluten and damages your intestines when you do, resulting in a whole range of symptoms and health problems that vary from person to person.
