gluten free is not a fad

Hearing a doctor call gluten free a fad, on national television, is scary!
Celiac Disease and gluten intolerance are real, and they can cause many health issues from stomach upset and digestive problems, to autoimmune diseases, osteoporosis, and cancer.
Should you stop eating gluten just because someone you know has? Or, for no good reason? I wouldn't. But if you found out, a health issue you have could resolve if you stopped eating gluten, I think you might try. 
Gliadin antibody and food challenge positive, I've been gluten free since 2004. Based on my own experience, I know correct diagnosis can be difficult. Many doctors are under educated. In the past, and even now, celiac and gluten intolerance are under diagnosed, un-diagnosed, mis-diagnosed, dismissed, and down played. Don't let this happen to you.
What ever your health issue is, do some research. Gluten is being implicated in more and more health issues. Antibody testing and food challenge are two simple ways your doctor can help you determine if you should avoid gluten.
For great information you can watch/visit:
