#721650 Clarification Please

Posted by chrissyinnj on 09 August 2011 - 09:30 AM

I know the difference between celiac and gluten intol. is that-
1- celiac has the villi wearing away- GS does not
2- celiac is autoimmune- GS is not.

Where I'm confused is:
Is GS genetic like celiac? or not? I am finding conflicting info on the internet, but I am not sure if it is because some websites are interchanging the two terms. Some sites say it is not. What are your thoughts?

Also is NCGS life long like celiac? I am coming across some places that say you might be able to introduce gluten again after a time. What has been your experience?
