Celiac disease, Wheat Allergies... VERY REAL THINGS!
But what happens when test negative for both, but you SWEAR your body can't process gluten?
Then you fall into the "non-celiac gluten sensitivity" group.
Seeing as how gluten is in almost everything these days... is the "gluten free" diet needed, or is it a fancy way to say "no carbs?"
My thought... if it works for you, and you know it makes a difference, KEEP IT UP!
Check out this study in which "gluten free" people were secretly fed gluten. Only about 50% showed symptoms... the others had no idea.
The study isn't saying that these people don't have digestive issues... but urge you to talk with your doctor for a proper diagnosis. These people may actually be reacting to something else in the grain or ingredients.
