Gluten sensitivity: Biological mechanism uncovered

People with gluten sensitivity - whereby gluten intake triggers symptoms similar to celiac disease, but without the associated intestinal damage - are often told that the condition is "all in the mind." But a new study may turn this perception on its head, after uncovering a biological explanation for gluten sensitivity.

Researchers have identified a biological explanation for why some people without celiac disease are unable to tolerate gluten.
In a study published in the journal Gut, researchers led by Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) in New York, NY, suggest gluten sensitivity may arise as a result of a weakened intestinal barrier, which triggers an inflammatory immune response when gluten is consumed.
