Gluten intolerance can cause similar symptoms to celiac disease, but it is a different issue with different long-term effects, said Medical News Today.
The health site continued: “The symptoms of gluten intolerance may also resemble those of a wheat allergy or intestinal conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
“Experts estimate that 10 to 15 percent of adults have IBS symptoms.
“People with celiac disease must avoid gluten, as it can cause intestinal damage and prevent the body from absorbing essential nutrients.
“Those with a wheat allergy must avoid all wheat products, as consuming any could be immediately life threatening.
