~~~> It helps the person who lives gluten free a better understanding of his or her situation .

~~~> A diagnosis helps siblings and parents understand the gluten free situation’s possible effect on them (and their children).

~~~> A diagnosis may be useful. (An example: schools are obligated to provide cafeteria meals appropriate for all children.
