Yeah, it's still not as well-researched and understood, but it is a thing. There's also wheat allergy, by the way. Here's what Coeliac.org.uk say:

"Non coeliac gluten sensitivity is when symptoms similar to coeliac disease are experienced, but there are no associated antibodies and no damage to the lining of the gut. Non coeliac gluten sensitivity is something that is being recognised as a problem in many countries across the world. This is a new area and there is a need for more research to understand the condition and who is at risk.

The exact role of the immune system in non coeliac gluten sensitivity is unclear and further research is needed. There are no specific diagnostic tests for non coeliac gluten sensitivity.

Some researchers define non coeliac gluten sensitivity as an improvement in symptoms when following a gluten-free diet. However, it is difficult to rule out the possibility of a placebo effect.

There is also some debate around whether gluten is the cause of the sensitivity or if other components are to blame, which are also removed from the diet when gluten-containing ingredients are removed, such as Fermentable Oligo- Di- Mono-saccharides and Polyols (FODMAPs) and other non-gluten proteins found in wheat."

I'm a 'real' coeliac disease sufferer and it baffles me how many wannabe coeliacs are out there!!!! You wouldn't try and be like a cancer or stroke sufferer, so it angers me a bit when people think they're affected by gluten when they really aren't. I pity the ones who are genuine of course.

It's both, but the fashionistas far out-number the real ones.

From what I've read up on, this FODMAPs thing is the problem for me, because I also have issues with other sources of them. But basically all gluten-containing foods contain these too, so avoiding gluten-containing foods works well for me.

I was diagnosed coeliac in 1998 at a time when gluten free bread fell apart on touch, it was only available on prescription.

Since the likes of Djockovic and Miley Cyrus went gluten free things have never been better for coeliacs!

The bigger the market for gluten free products the better they become, please everyone go gluten free, you know it makes sense?

I suppose if I'm going to eat a restaurant card, it might as well be gluten free.

Both. There are many people that can't actually eat it (like me) but there are some who do it purely as a diet type fad. However most of these people tend to still eat gluten as they don't know the lengths of everything it's in and are just doing it for show why on earth you'd willingly want to give up gluten without just cause is beyond me. Most of the products are crap.

I don't understand why you need a gluten-free card can't you just tell people in the restaurant that you only eat gluten-free

not if you don't speak the same language or are maybe being served by someone who's attention span makes them forget your requirements as soon as they report back to the chef.

I really don't get this weird thing some people have where they are convinced GF is a fad or a fashion, and then bang on about it as thought it has any negative affect on them....
why can't they just admit to themselves they have an (illogical?) instinctive mistrust of anyone who eats differently from them :D

see the problem with that is unless you are carry an "official medical proof" people who seem to think their anti GF stance is justified are liable to treat it all as a fad..

It was a genuine question, so your defensive second paragraph is superfluous...although perhaps venting was therapeutic for you, despite the misplaced target. I don't have a problem with coeliacs.

The language issue still doesn't totally explain a reason, unless it was translated in multiple languages. A rubbish waiter could forget a card or spoken word. Every condition related to diet could have a card eg lactose intolerant.

I genuinely don't think this is of value, unless it's for someone eg a child, that can't speak or explain.

I took your question as it was intended, the second paragraph was neither defensive nor aimed at you, merely a statement of my own puzzled frame of mind, sort of thinking out loud.
And the answer still stands whether or not the waiter is incompetent, if you don't have access to an interpreter
the chances of you actually getting a GF meal in a foreign restaurant will be improved by use of these cards and cannot possibly be hindered so why not?

Voted hot - posted something similar myself a couple of years ago although the ones I did were only available to print in 54 languages.

My daughter is gluten intolerant and we found them very helpful - I always make the effort when travelling to learn some of the language but it's so hard to cover everything - we always research ahead as well to try to find places that do gluten free food.

My grandson's girlfriend is a Coeliac and Gluten Intolerant and my d.i.l. has a whole shelf of things especially for her.

That is kind of her, very thoughtful. :)
(My m.i.l. wouldn't even feed me 'ordinary' food, didn't want strangers in her house - and this was after 15 years together oO)

As for fad or real - I do know people who are intolerant, it can make them really ill. I'm a bit surprised that the ones on here are so 'anti-fad' though, not everyone has been tested, how do you know that they don't actually have a problem, even a mild one and would benefit from going without to see if it helped? And it most definitely is NOT the same as claiming to have cancer when you don't, as someone who has had cancer I seriously object to that remark. Yes, GI can make you very poorly, and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy, but it didn't cause you to have part of your body cut away or have you filled with chemicals to kill it.

I think the the fashionistas out there should have the same tests I had before being diagnosed. Two blood tests, an endoscopy and a barium enema! Not so trendy now boys and girls, eh?

seriously? because they have done what exactly? i mean whatever the reason for their choice of a GF lifestyle what harm has it actually done to any single person on this planet?
having been a coeliac all my life i recognise the same attitude that has caused waiters etc to test my GF sensitivity by spiking my food in the past pathetic attitude.

Yeah because suffering from cancer or having a stroke are totally comparable to gluten intolerance.

and actually very wrong, there have been many news reports of people pretending to suffer from those diseases either as a result of Munchausen's syndrome or simply a wish to defraud people.

Hell yeah!

I have been diagnosed a few years back and slowly but surely its becoming easy(ish) to eat out and actually grab half decent food from the supermarket because of this. its amazing!

Cant wait until Greggs get some gluten free stuff in october so I can actually have a snack while out and about! convenient food, atm, sucks!

So why look at a coeliac listing, I presume that you just wanted a freebie, whatever it is?

I used to mock gluten sensitivity until it happened to me. It is a real thing causing genuine discomfort and bloating that can cause a 36" waist to reach nearer 40" in hours.
#31
Some people may well have it but choose not to go through with the stomach biopsy which is needed for an official diagnosis.

Comparisons to cancer/stroke may seem extreme but misdiagnosed for years it's not doing your body any good that's for sure.
