It seems like the gluten free diet trend is everywhere these days and is the answer to all of our problems in life, lack of energy, weight loss, better mood, right?

However, it is difficult to tell if the symptoms from IBS are gluten related or not. Because there is no test for NCGI, diagnosing the intolerance has become a trial and error process in which people are testing out a gluten-free diet and seeing if it makes a difference. Luckily, for many, it has.
