Ok well we all know what my issues are, now hubbs is asking me if it is contagious , all kidding aside my question is this.... I have been eating at home Gluten free for a few months. Hubbs has mostly been Gluten Free once in a while he wants some good ol Glutenized Mac and Cheese. Today he wanted more, so I reached for the Kraft , he said "no no not that kind". He said it has been bothering him , giving him the big D. So he got another kind. Do any of you guys think it is because he has been Gluten Free? weeks at a time.. then eats a box of glutenized Mac and Cheese? Would that give him the big D?? 

I know If I eat it I will get sicker than a dog, But he does not have Celiac and has never been sensitive to it. Mr. Iron Gut!! so going from non Gluten to Gluten would bother him???

Well, a good test would be to test it by doing a homemade version.

 

Has he been eating really healthy? That could be the reason right there.

When You say home made version you mean of Mac and Cheese? I bought another brand. He ate it tonight. So I don't think he will have a problem until he gets to work ...  :ph34r:  Oops! But he is the one who wanted it.... Do you think he will get sensitive to Gluten? He will be so ticked at me lol!! Now I think back he did get sick drinking a beer one day ...

my hubs has been having carpel tunnel problems and has even been to a surgeon, but surgery got cancelled or something - it has been bothering him for years, but he kept putting it off.  but he would wake up in pain from it, used to wear a brace when he slept, etc..  the other night i asked him about it because he hasn't been complaining about it or flexing his hand like he does when it hurts or goes numb.  he says, "it seems to be better since we've been gluten free"  i was pretty surprised that he thought that.  but it isn't bothering him so much (but he still drinks regular beer? :blink: )  go figure.  but if it saves us from making 2 kinds of pasta all the time, i'm down with it.

My Hubs is a sausage biscuit and gravy addict.  Over the summer he started making his breakfast using gluten-free Flours.  Says it sits better with him.  He is not Celiac but he does benefit from gluten free options.

It could be that he is just not used to all the CRAP they put in most processed foods anymore. I think if anyone went on a whole foods diet for a few months and then ate the chemical stew that most processed "foods" have become, they would get sick too.

That was my second thought.

Ok so he might be getting a lil sensitive to it ... Thats ok :) He is eating healthier as I am also :) so when he is in the mood for a bunch of Gluten he may suffer a lil bit. Ohhh well he will have to either live with it or be all gluten-free like me!! usually if we have noodles I make gluten-free and he eats it and likes it! But he wanted Gluten! LOL What ever Dave! hahaha Get sick on your Gluten hehehe .. J/K really! I would love for him to go gluten-free!!

If someone is not gluten intolerant, he can eat gluten, not eat gluten, eat gluten--- off and on ---and never notice a thing. They do not have a gluten intolerance.

 

That said, if your husband has been COMPLETELY gluten free, then eats gluten and gets sick from it, it's because he has had a gluten problem

all along, not because he "suddenly became gluten sensitive" by going without it on occasion. 

 

Food intolerances do not work that way.

 

My hubs went gluten-free with me after my DX because he honestly felt it gave me the best shot at recovery. He has had an occasional Guinness from time to time and nothing happens. He did not "acquire a gluten sensitivity" from being gluten-free for nearly 3 years, in other words.

Ok I see what your saying, well now I am thinking it wasn't a problem for him. He didn't get sick from the other brand. Last night he ate regular spaghetti noodles no problem. Something eles he is eating is bothering him , I don't think it is on again off again Gluten. He actually was thinking that, and I thought well yea maby .. So hmmm Maby we will do a food diary on him and try and figure this out .. And actually I put cookies in his lunch every day. Gluten cookies so he eats gluten every day. SO i guess I forgot about that. He needs to not eat all that crap he eats anyway. Mac and cheese!! Pffttt that processed dehydrated cheese I don't think is good for anyone!!!!!

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.  
    • Would you review this on Find Me Gluten free?  You can  use the app or just go to it on line. If the restaurant isn't listed, there is a way to suggest it.  I have done that and it works.  Many of us look at that site/ app
