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!!!!!

    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Right, usually they do an endoscopy after a positive blood antibody test.  The biopsy confirms the antibody results.  Doing them in the reverse order doesn't hurt anything though.  Sometimes people "fail" the antibody tests but still have gut damage.  Not everybody makes the same antibodies or in the same quantities.  Anyway, you should make sure they are doing the complete celiac antibody panel, not just a ttg test. And don't worry if the celiac tests are positive for gliaden antibodies.  Going gluten-free is an adjustment to your diet. Quite a few people around here have managed to adjust successfully.  It takes some effort, but anything worthwhile does they say.
    • Celiac Night Vision
      I don't have scotomas but you might find more help on a forum dedicated to vision issues.  Here are a couple I found.  the last link is a Yahoo search for "eye forum"  There may be others found if you try a search on Google. http://www.medhelp.org/forums/Eye-Care/show/90 http://www.healthboards.com/boards/eye-vision/ https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?p=eye+forum&ei=UTF-8&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-003
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      BTW, all first degree relatives of celiacs are supposed to be tested for celiac every 2 years in the absence of symptoms -- immediately if symptoms present. Your kids, your parents & all siblings should be tested. And that goes for your brothers kids too.
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      I agree completely with cyclinglady! Do you even know that there is such a thing called silent celiac? No symptoms at all but the villi are damaged.  I see you joined in 2009. Why? Is that when your brother was diagnosed? IMHO you need to do a lot of research & find out just exactly what you're risking. 
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      What?  Be sure that next endoscopy tests you for lymphoma (cancer) as well!   Seriously.  You need to do some research as your knowledge of celiac disease is lacking.  Did you fail the entire celiac panel?  Or did your doctor/insurance save cash and just order the very good (but does not catch all celiacs) TTG IgA?  You have a family history, a positive biopsy, what more do you need?  You do realize that this is not about just giving up gluten, don't you?  We just had a member join this year who was told years ago that her tests were "inconclusive" and that she now has suffered with lymphoma (cancer)? Ugh!   Endoscopy in 10 years?  Who would even wait 10 years?  This isn't colon cancer and polyps!   Are you talking about a colonoscopy?  Are you even sure you had an endoscopy?   Be sure you have your bones checked too.....and forget the breath.  You might not have any teeth and implants will be out since your bones will be compromised. Sorry, if I come on strong, but when I was diagnosed I had no tummy issues.  A few months later, my bones began breaking.  I was undiagnosed for a long time because of mis-informed doctors.  At least it was not stupidity on my part.   So, I urge you to research this disease more!  Hopefully you'll ward on another autoimmune disorder by remaining gluten free.  Find what celiac blood tests were actually taken!  Even if you do not think you have celiac disease, something has caused villi damage -- like a parasite, milk, or something......even more sinister! Good luck!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
