This from York Labs:
I'm a total newbie here and new to gluten-free as well so I probably shouldn't be answering this, but if you have celiac its not an allergy so that information wouldn't apply, however if you only have a wheat allergy then perhaps it might apply to your situation.
I have seen this statement and have wondered the same thing. All my tests for celiac disease came back normal/negative. My allergy tests have shown these are not "true" allergies so I look at them as intolerances. My docs have all said that I will never be able to eat these foods again. Wow that I have figured this all out and feel better.
Right now, I am not hoping for the adding back in to the diet but do plan to try some of the foods after a full year. I still have occasional problems - all due to cross contamination while out or with other people that come into our house and are not as careful as we are.
Also, my reactions have gotten more severe, not less so that leads me to believe the docs just might be right.
gluten intolerance is not an allergy - the same rules do not apply.
I believe this is generally true for IgG mediated allergies, which is what York tests you for. Gluten sensitivity is predominately IgA mediated. There is also the genetics issue. If you try this, your anatomy may well tell you loud and clear how successful you are. If you are asymptomatic, you won't get the message and may cause yourself a lot of trouble.
