Gluten Free-Wheeeee?!

I just got back the test results - the test I procrastinated having done because I just didn't really believe it would show anything - and am shocked to discover that
Intestinal antigliadin IgA antibody was elevated, indicating that you have active dietary gluten sensitivity. For optimal health, resolution of symptoms (if you have them), and prevention of small intestinal damage and malnutrition, osteoporosis, and damage to other tissues (like nerves, brain, joints, muscles, thyroid, pancreas, other glands, skin, liver, spleen, among others), it is recommended that you follow a strict and permanent gluten free diet. As gluten sensitivity is a genetic syndrome, you may want to have your relatives screened as well.

So, it seems I am off on a new culinary adventure- because I sure as heck won't stop eating or cooking!!!
