This taught me that even if an online source is reliable as in the case of Coeliac Australia, unless the information is regularly updated, it cannot be relied upon to be accurate. In this instance, although the experts admitted to a set of symptoms which could be attributed to a diet of gluten in non coeliacs, the actual cause and treatment was not very well understood with the only link being to a study done back in April, 2013 as a possible explanation (Gastrojournal 2013).
