Celiac is often referred to as gluten intolerant but you can be gluten intolerant and not have celiac. It can cause the same symptoms though. Celiac causes damage in the intestines and gluten intolerance alone usually does not. However, if you are gluten intolerant and do not follow the diet I think it can turn into celiac.

You might want to take a look at this website:
It seems to be more oriented toward those with non-Celiac gluten sensitivity. Part way down the opening web page is a section of links titled "Gluten Sensitivity". I found the fourth link, Gluten Intolerance, Paradigm of an Epidemic" particularly enlightening.
