It is diagnosed only after ruling out Celiac disease and wheat allergy. There is a debate whether this condition is a distinct clinical disorder from other gluten-related disorders. It may cause intestinal and extra intestinal symptoms, but in endoscopic examination, no changes to the villi of the intestines are seen.
