A recently published paper in the journal Nutrition in Clinical Practice[1] discussed the results from an Australian group exploring the global trend in self-diagnosis of non-coeliac gluten sensitivity (NCGS). We are all aware that the possibility that gluten and or related compounds may relate with our gastrointestinal tract and associated immune cells in a detrimental manner leading to a wide range of symptoms. Well we are not alone and many people are making the leap to exclude gluten without any formal diagnosis or even careful work up – so what some may say, well the Australian group suggest this may come with unanticipated risks.
