10 Symptoms Of Gluten Intolerance Story

Hmmm,  i liked the first part of the article about symptoms of gluten intolerance.  But advising people to start the gluten-free diet without testing for celiac disease is bad advice IMHO.

 

Also, I think this statement is false:

 

Please note that gluten is a very large protein and it can take months and even years to clear from your system

 

That doesn't sound true to me.  She is basically saying people are walking around with donuts and pizza in their guts years after eating them.  Sounds slightly off kilter to me.  At some point you would think people wouldn't want to eat any more donuts, pizza or bread is this were true. Even non-celiacs with guts full of donuts would be uncomfortable.  Maybe that's what happened to the Michelin man? :)

 

.......

.......

 

And this one, while sensational, is something I would much rather see a reference for, than take on good faith.

 

An article published in 2001 states that for those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity eating gluten just once a month increased the relative risk of death by 600%.

 

 

I ate gluten for years before starting the gluten-free diet.  By that logic, I should have croaked many years ago.  Maybe logic isn't the appropriate word to describe her assertion though.

 

Otherwise she has the right idea, and probably plans to make lots of money on it.  I guess you can consider me skeptical of her motives and her article.

yeah agreed; after further reading, I didnt agree on the testing side of it either :(

The article is about gluten sensitivity not Celiac--- and as you likely know --- most Celiac testing is inaccurate anyway.  Which is why it's such a HUGE problem and many people are UNDER diagnosed.  I take gluten sensitivity very seriously and I have my patients who are sensitive to avoid it at all cost.  So as far as I am concerned it's the same treatment. I certainly test my patients for Celiac and as of yet no one has come up positive however almost 100% of my patients are gluten intolerant.

Actually it not false.  I see patients who have been gluten-free for months to years and their markers for gluten sensitivity are still very high.  And of course their guts are still a mess and leaky.  When I say 'clear' I mean to clear the antibodies.  I can certainly send you a list of references.

That article source is: Lancet 2001 Aug; (Vol 358)

Wow that's really disappointing!  I suffer from an autoimmune disease and gluten played a huge role in that.  I no longer have a thyroid and if my writing can prevent even one person from having to go through what I went through --- I have been successful.  Thankfully this article has reached millions and i have been able to help a lot of people.  MY goal is to educate and prevent others from ever being in my shoes.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
