Low gluten doesn't really work. I can't be on a "low gluten" diet. Any gluten is very harmful for people with celiac disease. I miss Cheerios more than anything else, but I can't pop 3 of them in my mouth with some milk once a month and expect it not to take it's toll on my body. Gluten, regardless of the amount (unless it's 2 parts per million) still kills villi in the intestines. I'm not saying that the low gluten might make some people feel better than a regular host, but it would still be doing damage. I know that the host can't be gluten free and that's perfectly fine. I just can't see Jesus saying, "Hey, I know that this is detrimental to your body, but there's nothing that can be done. You're slowly destroying your temple each week, but thanks for sucking it up." I did find this quote though, Luke 7:50.
Both my parents and all five of my siblings have Celiac disease. My grandmother has been diagnosed for 25 years and knows when she has been exposed to gluten, and it happens on occasion when she eats outside of her own home. She even has reactions to gluten free oats. My mother knows, and I know what being glutened feels like, so a biopsy is entirely unnecessary.
Futhermore, a biopsy is not guaranteed to be effective at diagnosing any problem. You can easily get a section of healthy villi, (as both my mother and grandmother have before) Which is why many people go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. For years. And considering that our various physicians and specialists decided to harvest several of my mother's organs instead of checking for celiac disease, I don't think anyone will be shelling out money for the copay and costs of tests on something that's 1)not an issue 2) not guaranteed to be indicative of health or illness and 3) performed by people who have proven to be so inept that they could probably check their own intestines for signs of celiac disease, based on where there heads comfortably lie.
I do find it to be miraculous. I'm not trying to undermine doctrine or offend anyone, and I don't think what I've said is ludicrous, I was just sharing my own and my family's experience. I didn't think that forum rules prohibited personal testimony, but I'll read them a little more closely.
