 "Integris Grove practitioners are informing people about the difference between the two. Celiac disease damages the lining of the small intestine and prevents it from absorbing parts of food that are important for staying healthy. The damage is caused by a reaction to eating foods with gluten, like wheat, barley and rye. Those with celiac experience symptoms like abdominal pain, bloating, and other stomach issues. Health experts say people who are just gluten intolerant will have similar symptoms to celiac, but their intestine is not damaged by gluten. 
 
"If you just do like a trial of three weeks of no wheat, not just gluten, but no wheat and gluten. If you feel better, then you probably are sensitive," said Aunna Herbst, Integris Medicine Practitioner.
 
Around 20% to 30% of Americans suffer from celiac disease and around 70% to 80% are likely to be gluten sensitive. Celiac is also more commonly found in women. Integris practitioners suggest those who are experiencing symptoms when eating gluten, should see a doctor to get tested. "
