NFCA says test could determine if we've eaten gluten

Here's an interesting bit of news from the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness: Researchers have come up with a urine test that could determine if we've ingested gluten.

This test is apparently still preliminary, but this could be a big help for us. How many times have you started feeling ill and wondered if it's because your were glutened, or if something else was to blame. It would be nice to have a test that could give us the answer.

I don't know if the researchers are thinking about a take-home urine test. It seems the only practical use of this is if there is a home test, because we're not going to run out to the doctor every time we're worried that we've been glutened.

Anyway, you can read the full story from the NFCA here:
