I've Been Gluten Free For One Year!
Posted 17 May 2013 - 07:36 PM
Well, really, corn is a bigger problem. It is hidden in more places and without labels. For example, I just recently learned that corn is in iodized salt. Maybe this source is the cause of my always aching stomach. But it does seem like I am still finding other sources of discomfort. Like most recently, mushrooms. And skins of almonds.
For some reason I thought that after a year symptoms would have improved. Or at least all the intolerances (or allergies?) would have been uncovered. Sure my, um, lifestyle change has me eating healthier but sometimes I wish I didn't have to eat. It is just such a bother!
Sorry, I am in a downer right now. I tried eating some Zankou Chicken after hearing assurances that it was gluten, soy and corn free and now I feel nauseous. Blah.

Sorry you aren't feeling great yet...but as you point out you have learned a lot...this knowledge will bring healing...unfortunately it can take months and years...doesn't seem fair...so stomp...yell..I have a time or ten and then get up tomorrow and try again...one day (hopefully very soon) you will be amazed by the improvement.
Until then...hang in there

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.
