Diagnosis of NCGS was established when all the following criteria were met: (1) exclusion of wheat allergy by clinical history and determination of specific IgE; (2) exclusion of celiac disease by absence of celiac-specific antibodies tissue transglutaminase (tTG), endomysium (EMA), and/or deamidated gliadin peptides (DGP); (3) duodenal biopsy with a histological damage grade 0 to 1, according to Marsh's classification; (4) significant improvement of symptoms on strict gluten-free diet and relapse of symptoms after gluten reintroduction.
The classic and usually obvious consequences of the enteropathy are malabsorption with diarrhea, weight loss, and nutritional deficiencies.[6] Serologic studies which are used to confirm the diagnosis of CD includes ELISA for IgA antibodies to gliadin and the immunofluorescence test for IgA antibodies to endomysium, which is a structure found in smooth muscle connective tissue.
