Non-celiac gluten sensitivity (NCGS) or gluten sensitivity is a syndrome in which patients develop a variety of intestinal and/or extraintestinal symptoms that improve when gluten is removed from the diet, after celiac disease and wheat allergy are excluded.

NCGS is associated with increased blood levels of zonulin, an inflammatory protein that increases intestinal permeability.[1]
