No Biomarker

It is true that commercially available test do exists (including blood, stool and saliva) however such test have not been tested and validated. AGA antibodies are also detected in people that have no problem with gluten, including those experiencing gut infections, parasite infestations, or simply viral enteropathy. If you search www.clinicaltrial.gov you will find only one current research study to find a biomarker for NCGS. Currently, the only tool for diagnosis of NCGS, once CD and WA have been ruled out, is a randomized double blinded placebo trial to show symptoms develop when gluten is introduced. If you have current research which suggest otherwise, please share with the Center for Celiac Research and Dr. Fasano so we can reevaluate our position.
