Gluten Sensitivity

Gluten sensitivity (GS) encompasses a collection of medical conditions, ranging from mild to severe, in which gluten has an adverse effect.  For people with gluten sensitiv enteropathy, remove of gluten in their diet and lifestyle (gluten can be present in shampoo/body wash/make up) results in the restoration of villus architecture or lower lymphocyte densities in the intestine.  Some sensitivities can be on parts of the body such as the skin, and others can be neurological or as a result of an autoimmune disease.  Clinical findings are not absolute but improvements have been seen in many of these conditions by the removal of gluten in the patient's diet and lifestyle.

Here is a list of symptoms that people display when they are gluten sensitive, as put together by the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America:
