In brief: Be discerning
This "pop" / "fad" diagnosis is based on one lab's work from the 1980's; the simple test is the ability to absorb sucrose molecules intact, and most of the scientific community remains skeptical that it's a distinct entity, that it causes most if not all symptoms, and so forth.
If you self-diagnose with a "fad" diagnosis, you'll never feel well again -- you'll notice that nobody ever gets cured.
