BTW: Celiacs left untreated can and often does lead to diabetes and colon cancer...My grandfather died of colon cancer as a young man, we are pretty sure it runs down the family from him as celiacs is a genetic condition. People of Irish and Scotish descent have the most frequently reported occurances of it. Lastly, the earliest known case of celiacs was found in a Roman era woman of age 19 from the time of Christ. The archaeologist had enough DNA from her body to test and she was celiac and her skeleton showed extreme damage from the disease. I can post you the link if interested.

Fair enough! Finally you’ve SHOWN me something.
If true, your family might be one of the one percent with legitimate scientifically diagnosable gluten problems.
Frankly YOU of ALL people should be disgusted with the other 99% of gluten freaks who DON’T have anything but hypochondria.

This is absolutely not true. The average dx time in this country for celiac disease is at least 12 years after onset. Left untreated, severe iron deficiency anemia is the most common result.
