    Because Celiac is a disease associated with a lot of other diseases like other autoimmune disorders, diabetes, and arthritis and it is also genetic. So it is good to know if you have Celiac or if it is just a non-Celiac gluten intolerance so that you know what your risks are and what to watch out for and for your kids too. Levi's pediatric GI was somewhat of an expert on Celiac disease and told DH to introduce gluten in his diet again so that he could get the testing, but it would be a miserable couple of weeks in order to do that.

    I'm on my phone so I can't find the stuff the doctor provided me with. But here's a link that sort of explains it. Being careful when eliminating gluten is important to stay healthy. Paying attention to your body and being sure to get the right nutrients.

    It sounds like from reading this that the advice would be to follow the same advice good for most people... to eat a wide variety of whole foods to prevent the problems they talk about. If you replaced what you were eating with processed GF products and white rice, it would be a problem for anyone.

    ETA: FWIW, DH lost a bit of weight when he cut gluten out, and all of his blood tests and vital signs are very, very good according to his doctor. I think part of this is because he eats very little in the way of GF processed food. He really only has 2 pieces of Rudi's GF bread for lunch, and occasionally he has GF brown rice pasta.
