Elevated Gliadin Antibodies = Gluten Sensitivity

Pamela Cureton is incorrect. "Gluten sensitivity includes any and all problematic health responses to gluten in any body system." (Recognizing Celiac Disease. p. IX) Elevated AGA-IgA and/or AGA-IgG antibodies is a marker for an immune reaction to gluten, that is, an adverse gluten sensitivity reaction. AGA stands for anti-gliadin antibodies. Gliadin is the name given to gluten found in wheat. If the body is producing antibodies, then gluten is penetrating the body somewhere and eliciting the reaction. The person may, or may not, have the lesion in the intestine characteristic of celiac disease, but he or she is suffering a gluten sensitivity reaction.
