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.

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
