Small Amounts of Gluten in Subjects with Suspected Nonceliac Gluten Sensitivity: a Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Cross-Over Trial.

CONCLUSIONS:

In a cross-over trial of subjects with suspected NCGS, the severity of overall symptoms increased significantly during 1 week of intake of small amounts of gluten, compared with placebo. Clinical trial no: ISRCTN72857280.

Thanks Eric.

One of the best things about having this studied and seemingly definitely proven (NCGS) is that the study results can be taken to doctors by people suspecting they have NCGS. At present, many people are being told "It's in your head" by their practitioners and they then suffer from prescriptions aimed at some other diagnosis, plus additional stress from the ignorant doctors and lack of support from friends and family.

Chris Kresser had an article on this recently,

and the amazing thing on the article was the number of comments it drew out where readers' n=1 self-studies confirmed that the only way to avoid the symptoms was to avoid gluten, and further, that every time gluten was avoided, certain symptoms subsided.
