From the patient's perspective:
"It's Bull Sh*t."
From the Doctor's perspective:
"I've Been Stumped."
I, for one, agree. IBS is not a diagnosis, it is a label for symptoms when the doctors don't know the cause (and have probably not even considered celiac disease).
Diagnosis by biopsy of practically non-existent villi; gluten-free since July 2000.

if you want to figure out if you have a gluten intolerance- you need to ask a doctor to test you- and you need to be eating gluten regularly (like 4 pieces of bread a day for 6-8 weeks at least) if you want an accurate test.
