    Default U. of Md. Study Identifies Differences Between Celiac, Gluten Sensitivity

    By Jane Anderson

    Just as we've known all along: gluten sensitivity is real. That's the word from the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research, where researchers said yesterday that gluten sensitivity represents a separate and distinct condition from celiac disease.
    The researchers, led by Dr. Alessio Fasano, found differences between gluten sensitivity and celiac disease at the molecular level, and also in responses from the immune system.
    Dr. Fasano estimates that 6% of the population has gluten sensitivity, compared to 1% with celiac disease.
