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!!!!!

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
