Unfortunately, while they are talking about Celiac Disease (which is always good), the doctor however says that people who are diagnosed (actually and don't just go on the diet for fun...) could possibly reintroduce gluten into their diet, which is UNTRUE.

Wow. I disagree with most of what this doctor said. A "vegetarian" diet is not good for celiacs. Vegetarian includes whole grains, many of which are akin to POISON to celiacs. Many meats (most unprocessed ones) are NOT bad for celiacs, so why would you cut out meat when your diet is already so limited?

This is coming from a vegetarian of 10 years, who went back to eating meat after my diet became so limited as a dx celiac.

And she said celiac is OVERDIAGNOSED???????????

I have NEVER heard of celiac being OVER diagnosed!

You either have the genes or you don't!!! She mentioned NOTHING about genetic testing! My father has it and I have it. It's in my genes! Many people are gluten sensitive without actual celiac, but CELIAC being UNDER diagnosed, what a nutcase!!!

The Today Show needs Dr. Peter Green!! Save the public from the misinfo from that ignorant doctor on the show! And they say internet info is unreliable...this was straight from a doctor's mouth. I know, I know, doctors are another whole topic.

Actually it is true, which is why work on a vaccine is underway. I guess you missed my post in the other thread on this Today Show segment. Here is a case study of a diagnosed celiac who was successfully desensitized to gluten.
