May is Celiac Awareness Month!   Gluten-free is the latest fad diet for those who think they have symptoms resembling celiac disease.   Celiac disease is a serious disease that must be diagnosed by a physician.  Gluten sensitivity is less serve but can cause IBS -like digestive problems, headaches, and other more vague symptoms.  Please do not self-diagnose or avoid gluten until you have a confirmed diagnosis.
