Yep, yep, yep!

 

The craze of going gluten free without testing really bothers me. I would've never done it, if I'd known what I know now. And because my reactions to gluten are so severe now, a gluten challenge is out of the question.

 

What really drives me crazy is those who go just "sort of" gluten free, because they think for sure that they couldn't have celiac disease. That is going to harm them in the long run, if they actually do.

 

I think that the ultimate way to solve the problem will be to develop testing that doesn't require exposure to gluten. I hope for the day when the in vitro gliadin challenge becomes mainstream or they come up with some other way to diagnose, without putting people into complete relapse.
