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!!!!!

    • I've been diagnosed with celiac a few months ago I thought that I had it for a while now it runs in the family.  I found out I had it a few months back when I ate chick fi a sandwich and had to go to the ER because I couldn't stop throwing up. They didn't know what it was and it took a few more months for anyone to take me seriously and find out what's wrong   Anyways I've gone gluten free now and I still have pains whenever I eat ANYTHING. It's cramping and burning and feels like my stomach is on fire.  I also have pains...below which I'm not sure what it is.  I ate a salad today, and now i'm in pain the salad had cheese, onion on it no dressing or any breading... Maybe I should stay away from cheese, I think it may be lactose and can't eat soy.   I ate some gluten free chex the other day with rice milk and ended up in pain.. I don't know maybe it's more than just celiac. I don't know if this is normal for people just going gluten free...maybe there was some hidden gluten in those foods. I don't know.   All i know is that this pain is hurting me and I'm tired. Thanks for reading...this is my first post.
    • I found my gas issues were caused by carbs, and sugars, something about how the bacteria in my gut changed and started making me gassy and extremely bloated when they got a hold of any thing more then a tbsp of grains, beans, fruit, or starch carbs. And no amount of medicine helped. Changed to 1/4 servings of those and mostly protein, fat diet. As for vitamin supplements I found I have to take B vitamin supplements 3 times a day to not go zombie mode. I personally found Liquid Vitamins Energy & Stress and the Nero-logic from them helps along with the occasional 1/2 bottle of 5 hour. As to carbonated water I avoided it when bloated cause it made me feel worse.
    • Butterbean, do go have a read of the dermatitis herpetiformis section.  See if anyone's story sound familiar to what you're experiencing.
    • Hi all. Well, it's been around twenty days since I've been taking Gas-X like meds (with simethicone), but no relief. Maybe I should drink bigger dose... Currently, I'm taking 80 mg four times per day.
      I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically... Anyway, I have two questions:
      First, is it good or bad to drink mineral/carbonated water if you have severe trapped gas like me?
      Second: Is it possible to regain some physical strength/relieve fatigue with vitamin supplements? Thanks in advance.
    • I have had so many issues with my teeth--I keep getting decay and I have had filling after filling.  This past week, my dentist told me I may need a crown, which is pricey. I also have two missing teeth, which was a genetic thing that runs in my family. I am sick of hygienists telling me I am not doing enough brushing, flossing rinsing.  I do all three religiously (can't even imagine how bad my mouth would be if I didn't...)  Thankfully, last time I had my teeth cleaned, the hygienist said that my mouth was the cleanest one she had seen in years. And, she said, "something happened to your teeth developmentally." I explained how I had undiagnosed celiac disease many years. I am only 31... It is really disheartening.   What do you guys do to afford all this dental care?  My insurance doesn't cover a whole lot.  Thankfully, my dentist has felt bad and gives me discounts here and there.
