    It's largely a fad. Every time some new illness comes out that's easy to treat, everyone thinks they have it and have to stop it when it's not a legitimate problem for them. There are true Celiac Disease sufferers out there, but are there as many out there as there are people claiming they need to go gluten free? I highly doubt it.

    When you know someone who's throat swells when they eat gluten and they have a hard time swallowing other foods, which in turn cause choking, it's not a fad.

    My mom is allergic, but just gets massive migraines. Not as severe as what you mention.

    any diet is a dietary fad because diets are a quick fix to a long term issue and in the end solve nothing

    I think you are confusing the usage of the word "diet" in this instance. If I told you my child was on a strict "no peanut" diet would it be a fad? The word can be used to describe temporary eating habits as well as permanent life-long eating habits.

    ^^^This.
    Some people need a gluten free diet. Most people who are on a gluten free diet, however, were on atkins for no reason and will be on to the next one soon enough.

    Why does anyone want to tell your child they are on a "diet" to ghave them one day start to question why they are a "diet". People equate diets with things like weight loss and being unhealthy, is this what people want their kids to possibly interpete? We need to teach them the difference between a diet and a life style change
