What is a study on the prevalence of gluten sensitivity in the general population?

I need a study, or some other legitimate source for the percentage people with gluten sensitivity/intolerance in the general population. Does anyone have one?

"Only 0.4% of the U.S. population carries HLA-DQ4 and no other allele."

Every other allele is associated to some degree with gluten problems. I was personally tested for the classic celiac alleles??? HLA-DQ2 and HLA-DQ8. I was negative for both and had a beer and a sandwich to celebrate...the next day I wasn't feeling so awesome. I'm probably not HLA-DQ4, but I'm not celiac, which means I'm in the less understood category of "gluten sensitive."

Stephan did a very good job with this topic. As far as I know, there haven't been any studies since this post was publihed that would change the analysis.
