I love when we share our stories - thanks very much.
One of the reasons I advocate the blood test is depending on the person, a "positive" test SHOWS them to stay strictly gf. Not everyone is, even with a positive test. If you want a higher chance of cancer, you might think twice about your choices, wouldn't you think? And, on the other hand, there are many people who are strictly gf without a diagnosis.
Another reason to get the test is because autoimmune conditions run in families. Some family members might take a "gold standard" diagnosis more seriously and get themselves checked. Every family is different: some take it seriously with or without a diagnosis.
Personally? I think most everyone should be gf (it'd be okay for Hitler to eat gluten for example), but that's just me.
Seitan is evil - bwa ha ha.
KNOWLEDGE = POWER. BODY = TEMPLE. FOOD = MEDICINE. PREVENTION IS THE CURE. YOU ARE WHAT YOU ABSORB!
One person's food is another person's poison.
