      • Dizziness/lightheadedness
        By HannahZ · Posted
        I also noticed the dizziness after I went gluten free, but in my case it started when I attempted a gluten challenge. After the challenge I apparently became extremely sensitive to even trace gluten contamination.  I am now on a super strict gluten-free diet and doing well (the cross contamination elimination diet I read about in a study by Dr. Fasano and others). I made one tiny mistake two or three weeks ago, while following this diet, and I quickly experienced neuro symptoms, including the dizziness. I think when the diet is sufficiently clean, the body gets a break.  But maybe then our defenses are down and accidental gluten ingestion is worse? I wonder.  Alternatively, it could be that when the diet is clean it makes it easy for the body to signal "avoid that food!" -- I did have that impression when I made my recent mistake. I appreciated the signal and I have made no mistakes since.    All of that said, I would also check blood pressure and blood sugar. It would be smart to consult a doctor to make sure it isn't anything else going on. I know my BP and blood sugar are ok. Mine is just plain dizziness, but I do have some other neuro stuff going on as well (you are lucky not to have that). 
      • Lindt Excellence 85% Bars

        And thanks, too, Cycling Lady - I read Jane Anderson's link you gave, and I can't see where on the Lindt site she found her quote about shared lines and possible trace contamination.  I guess I could call or e-mail them tomorrow, but this is what the site says tonight: Is there gluten or barley malt in Lindt chocolate? Gluten can be found in several premium chocolate products that Lindt & Sprüngli produces; either as a cereal ingredient or as a barley component. For consumers who are sensitive to gluten, we do offer certain premium high cocoa content products that are manufactured without cereal or barley malt, which may be suitable for consumers with such dietary restrictions. These offerings include four bars from our EXCELLENCE line - 70%, 85%, 90% and 99%. Please always refer to a product’s packaging for definitive advice.

        We are sensitive to the fact that there are consumers who are unable to enjoy all of our chocolate at this time, and we hope that in the future we will be able to extend more product offerings to accommodate our consumers with varying dietary requirements.

        Thanks, Paulie - Mine is only in English and doesn't say that, so hopefully it's ok....
      • Not getting enough food, malnourished?
        By squirmingitch · Posted
        You will have to be eating gluten to get tested. Here are the rules: I don't care if the doc says you don't have to follow those rules because the doc will be wrong & you will get a negative result.  Also, for when you go full on gluten free you will need to know these rules to prevent cross contamination. Read this thread & follow all the links in it. It would be good for your mom to read it too so she knows.

        That's a great idea, I will definitely do that and will save me time being a student.    I'm making an appointment with a doctor to get tested for celiac, see what happens. But since the wedding I've been off and having upset stomach and nausea. Ugh this sucks.
