I think it is good to have the alert tag. . .you never know when you may have a sudden new reaction.
Perhaps, when it comes to small children who might not know better than to accept food from a teacher, friend, or friend's parent, and for medication that a nurse or doctor might unknowingly give the child. For an aware child or an adult, however, I don't think it's a really good idea. Obviously, you know that you have celiac and that you need to be careful. The only time that you would have something administered without your control and without being able to warn the person of your celiac would be if you lost consciousness---and in that state, if medicine needs to be administered to save a live or something--gluten or not--it should be administered.

I wasn't saying don't let them give you medas with gluten in them. . .just letting them know that you could be reactiong to something.
