Stevia: Problems With It? Am I Alone?
Posted 30 July 2009 - 07:47 PM
After a few uses I noticed I would get the same kind of thing that I get when I have gluten...gas, bloating, pain and the big D. Everything I've read says that Stevia doesn't have this problem for people (unless they have large quantities). I've also read that it should be fine for people with Celiac.
However, I know that everybody is different so what works for all may not work for a small few. I just want to know just how alone I am in this one.
I could be wrong, it could be something else but I don't think so.
BTW, the Honey Nut Chex are AWESOME! I love them.

There are some people who do get diarrhea from different sweeteners...Truvia even has a statement on the box to that effect. Truvia also is made from the stevia plant.

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

However, for the last two days I've been reacting like I've had gluten. It is so frustrating trying to figure out the things that cause my reaction. I hate when I get an attack it is so draining.
My son just told me "Mom, I think you've had gluten" and I asked him why and he said "because you're in the bathroom a lot lately"
So, now the Chex our out, the Stevia is out, the coffee is out, the creamer is out and I'm back to scratching my head and only leaving the house for short trips and scoping out the bathrooms.

also i had a reaction to honey nut chex but it wasnt a typical gluten reaction for me. it made me very tired and gave a me a queesy tummy... gluten for me usually lloks more like:
cramps, bloating, diarrhea, fatigue, brain fog, pressure, and the next day i will be exhausted like ive run four miles. honey nut chex was merely an afternoon of ill feeling. so i dont know what it was but it didnt seem gluten related to my body
