    Celiac.com 09/30/2016 - This week in celebrity gluten-free news, Kourtney Kardashian has put her family on a gluten-free, dairy-free diet.

    The 37-year-old reality star explained on her website how she made the diet change after undergoing muscle testing, an alternative medicine technique that has been widely discredited by science and medical professionals. The reality star wrote: "I don't think everyone needs to eat this way, but we had muscle testing done, which showed we all have sensitivities to corn, gluten and dairy."

    Kourtney Kardashian says she has "noticed a great positive change in behavior" when her kids stick to a gluten- and dairy-free diet. She even offers her own personal tip for maintaining gluten-free harmony: Bring your own cupcakes to birthday parties, so gluten-free kids can still enjoy the food and fun.

    No word on whether sister Kim and her partner Kanye West or their kids will be joining the gluten-free push anytime soon.

    Stay tuned for updates on these and other related stories of gluten-free celebrities, both with and without celiac disease and/or related conditions.

    Are you seriously talking about this on a CELIAC website? I thought you had better taste than that. This is what makes gluten free a ´trend´ and ´cool´ and disregards the seriously of CELIAC DISEASE. This disgusts me to no end! I have lost all respect for your website and I hope you're happy that you're getting traffic to your site for this, because it seems that's all you care about and not what's really important.

    What does this have to do with Celiac??? She is a Fad Dieter. This belongs in magazine at the register in the supermarket, NOT on Celiac.Com.. She is not a Celiac nor does she have Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity.

    I expect more out of a website that is celiac.com. Why are we reporting about some celebrity that isn't even celiac? I'm very disappointed that a website I felt was reputable would post something like this.

    We disagree--anytime famous people go gluten-free, for any reason, it is news to our visitors, and it will drive more companies and restaurants to create gluten-free products and menus--which will help all celiacs.

    We have never had a "celiacs only" for our news coverage. We have always covered all topics that affect celiacs, including stars who go gluten-free, no matter their reasons.

    I'm sorry that you just discovered that we cover all types of news related to the expanding popularity of the gluten-free diet...Celiac.com has always done this, and will continue to do so.

    Wow...you could not be more wrong. When I was first diagnosed, I relied on your site for information and a sense of community. Now you promote items that are not proven safe for celiac, talk gossip, etc. What happened?

    This will NOT "drive more companies and restaurants to create gluten-free products and menus--which will help all celiacs." It will make even more servers and restaurant owners not take celiacs seriously when we try to eat in their restaurants. I was at Red Robin last night, watching my daughter eat and the server and I had a real conversation about why I wasn't eating. He remarked that he believed me, but he usually doesn't believe anyone requesting gluten free because they usually insist on using the salt at the table, even when warned that it contains gluten. "Poser Celiacs" is what he and his colleges call those people. So your posting this frivolous news item just gives the Kardashians more exposure and brings your rating as a serious website way down. Nope. This was a bad idea.

    But it won't drive companies or restaurants to create truly safe products, if they see it as fad and not a true health/disease issue.

    I was diagnosed celiac and therefore gluten free when it was impossible to find anything gluten-free (12 years ago), much less anything GOOD that was gluten-free. If celebs and "fad dieters" help drive the market to increase better tasting, more cost effective, better labeled, and more readily available gluten-free product, where's the harm? Yes, we need to still advocate for the disease, but getting panties in a wad over folk who help make our lives easier is not the way to go about it.
