Celiac Disease is a condition in which people cannot tolerate any gluten whatsoever. It also correlates to specific results on specific lab tests.
It's also possible to have trouble with gluten without getting the "right" lab results that point to Celiac Disease. Some of the symptoms (what gluten does to your body) may also be different.
I personally suspect that there's more than one condition causing "non celiac gluten sensitivity." Some of it may be problems with wheat but not with other forms of gluten (such as spelt or rye)- but it still shows problems that clear up on a gluten-free diet. In some cases, gluten sensitivity may be temporary, and go away when the gut is healed.
Any O nonnie is going to do poorly on wheat, barley, and spelt, and will likely improve on a gluten-free diet (especially if they don't think to test how they do on rye.) So many people equate "gluten free" with "wheat free" and don't know how to do a wheat-free diet without going completely gluten-free.

thank you so much. i'll take advantage once again of your experiences and bright brains : do you have any idea about being soy intolerance? does it occurred to you a "definite" symptom that couldn't be questioned about? thank you

Just around the same time that I found ER4YT, I had an IgA test run..it stated that I should avoid eggs, almonds, wheat, cow milk, and kidney beans. So when I started on the BTD, I didn't eat any of those 5 items. But some of them were beneficial, according to Dr. D, so after about a year, I started to introduce almonds and eggs, and a little bit of yogurt. I do fine on them in moderation.
I like to approach my healing from a total body perspective, not just a symptom or two, which is different from the perspective of allopathic medicine. For me, I put my trust in Dr. D's hard work and experience, knowing that one-size-doesn't fit all..
Having said that, I do use other forms of healing, but rarely is it allopathic.
I'm taking my power back by remembering that a belief is only a thought that I keep thinking,
