I think so & so do others like Dr Fine of Enterolab.com

I also think that a lot of gluten intolerant people die of other things before their villi totally go, like my mother who died of colon cancer.

I am double DQ1 & I have a double DQ1 friend with osteo & another auto immune illness... & a positive biopsy for celiac...

In my case yes. But my brain and joints were already severely effected before the gut stuff became much more than an annoyance. Some will say the difference is that those with celiac will form autoimmune disorders but gluten intoleranct folks don't. In my case that was clearly not true. I had multiple autoimmune problems including arthritis and fibro and what was thought to be MS. All went into remission on the gluten free diet. It was always assumed I was genetically a celiac, until I had my genes read almost 5 years after diagnosis and it was found that I am genetically not celiac but gluten intolerant.
