Diagnosis of Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS): The Salerno Experts’ Criteria

Highlights: An expert group of gastroenterologists developed a protocol to diagnose NCGS through gluten elimination, blinded reintroduction and systematic symptom recording. The protocol was suggested as a tool to standardize subject selection in research studies. However, it would also be very useful in clinical practice.

Application to Dietetic Practice: This is an excellent resource for dietitians working with elimination diets and food challenges. The protocol could be used to help clients determine if particular foods, such as gluten, are truly affecting their symptoms. The procedure could easily be adapted to other foods (e.g. milk, egg, etc.).
