    Sounds like a good learning video for gluten free diet? options. Please subscibe to my channel for more links to this subject.

    @be3of11 – Good question – the answer is ‘no’ and you wouldn’t want to reintroduce gluten just? to take a lab test if you had any suspicion that it was bothering you. That would be too dangerous.

    There are genetic tests that can be done for both celiac and gluten sensitivity that do not require a reintroduction of gluten.

    I hope that helps!

    Can the test for sensitivity? be done on someone who has already cut gluten out of their diet?

    Hmmm..I haven’t seen that one yet. I would really appreciate if you could send me a link so I can share it with my forum friends. I’m sure? they would appreciate the new additional information. Thank you.

    @TheGalwayfan – You are correct that Dr Fasano’s study did make that conclusion but there is now a test for gut permeability that is more sensitive and is showing positive for gluten sensitive individuals. I have personally spoken with Dr Fasano, two weekends ago to be precise, and he is currently expressing no doubt that gluten sensitivity or ncgs does in fact exist. More research is upcoming but clinically I feel comfortable? with stating that leaky gut is common in ncgs.

    In Dr Fasano’s study, only the true diagnosed? celiacs had gut permeability. Absolutely no one else who participated in the study did! Dr Fasano concluded that ncgs “may” exist, but there was no damage. He never said it was a definate conclusion! He only said maybe.

  8. TheGalwayfan

    Dr Fasano’s study proved that ncgs people absolutely don’t have leaky guts. In fact, he proved their guts were even less permeable than the? control subjects who had no gluten troubles at all.

    Hello RubberWIlbur,

    I did a video entitled “Is? there a pill for celiac disease?” on youtube that you might find informative on this topic.

    As you so aptly put it, it would be like ‘playing with fire’ to use enzymes in such a way as to condone cheating with gluten. The enzymes are designed to help with any minor cross contamination that might occur when eating outside your own kitchen. They are in no way safe to use as an alternative to your gluten free diet.

    Sorry!

    Love you Dr. Vikki. More and more people are waking up to this? problem everyday. There are so many friends places I can hang out now that are gluten free and I don’t have to worry about CC. 🙂 . Huzzah!

    Does taking those enzyme? supplements help you, or is that playing with fire?

  14. RubberWilbur

    I’m in denial. I’ll tell myself that I’m not sensitive to gluten. It’s tricky because I’ll put it back into my body and not get immediate bad symptoms, Then a week later I start having horrible stomach aches at night, acid reflux, being tired, etc. I just wish I? could accept that I’m intolerant to it. arghhhh
