Ncgi Or Ncgs

Hi, I don't know if it matters but is it Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NGCI) or Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity (NGCS). Are they the same thing or 2 different conditions? Thanks.

No replies? I'm surprised. Maybe there's no answer and both are acceptable? But if so it seems to me that would cause even more confusion since so much confusion already exists about the difference between intolerance, allergy, sensitivity. Can anyone offer any feedback? Thanks.

So far as I know the two terms have been used interchangeably up till now, but there seems to be a growing preference for sensitivity rather than intolerance.

Thanks Mushroom. My doctor called it 'probable non-celiac gluten sensitivity' so I guess that's it then. Well, it's good to finally have a diagnosis.

In January, in the UK, I was diagnosed with NCGI. I think it is the same thing at the moment, but as more research gets done, I expect the terms will be changed or pinned down more. Maybe :)

I realize you're asking what the medical community is leaning toward, but just had to say it...

Personally, I prefer "intolerance," because that's what my reaction is!

"Sensitive" sounds as if gluten is merely annoying and I should just woman up and get over it. :P

On the other hand, "intolerance" has some not-so-nice connotations too :P

Actually intolerant makes more of a statement than merely being sensitive to something. I fully agree and so does my pain. I do hope intolerant wins out.

I know! Funny thing is, I am exceptionally tolerant in the rest of life. I should say gluten and wheat are intolerant of me!!
