Celiac Awareness Month on May, 2018: Is it just me, or is the new trend to be gluten free?

May, 2018 is Celiac Awareness Month 2018.

Is it just me, or is the new trend to be gluten free?

This is Celiac Awareness month. Elizabeth Hasselbeck has just brought a book (I'm told full of inaccuracies, but that's by the by) about it, and Starbucks has just brought out a new gluten free cake.

Yes, currently gluten free and celiac are buzzwords. And it won't last, I'm sure. But all these new gluten free options that have come on the market are unlikely to disappear so quickly, which is a good thing for those of us that have been gluten free before and will continue to be afterwards.

Some people think going gluten free will help them lose weight or detox - Oprah started a detox which was gluten free (amongst other things) a while back, but it was going before that. A gluten free diet may cause you to lose weight, or gain, or may have no effect at all. It really depends more on what you eat, than on the fact that you've cut out gluten - although if you're suffering from celiac disease and you go gluten free, you will most likely gain weight, because you will be able to absorb the nutrients in your food.

Going gluten free is an excellent way of diagnosing gluten intolerance. If you have unexplained symptoms (there is a wide range of different symptoms from mental and emotional difficulties to arthritis, skin diseases and digestive problems) try the diet for 3 weeks, then do 1 or 2 days as a challenge - where you eat gluten at every meal. This will show you right away if you are gluten intolerant or not.

There's no benefit to a gluten free diet if you aren't gluten intolerant or celiac - but as the average time for diagnosis for adults WITH SYMPTOMS in the US is 11 years, you may well be so without realizing it.

There are MANY commemorative months celebrated by this nation and/or used to raise awareness. I wonder why republicans take issue with ONLY this particular celebration.
