This is a good thread to read through, although I don't understand the numbers in the first several posts. I am normally off of gluten but I fall and become instantly addicted before I jump back on the gluten free wagon and within 20 min. I have stomach pain followed by gas cramps and terrible smelling gas. (sorry, had to go there) I also get neuro. symptoms as well with the two worst being severe fatigue and ADD.

Well, back on the wagon I go!

Quote How Sensitive Are You? Helping each other out End Quote

I tear-up sometimes watching sappy movies. Ooops, prolly not what you meant! :)

I stay with mostly whole foods, so I don't know how sensitive I am now really. There are not a lot of processed foods I could eat anyway due to my other food intolerances. I used to think I was very sensitive, before I eliminated all my other food intolerances. Basically anything was problem when I was sick and my gut was already irritated.

Nowadays I am still careful about what I eat, and seldom go out to restaraunts. I have a gluten free house, and my cat (Muffin) has gluten free food and treats now.

I do use Barbasol shaving cream, and home made soap that my cousin makes.

I don't try new processed foods very often, but mainly stick with things that I already know work for me.

So far frozen veggies are ok for me, and I seldom have any problem with canned veggies except for some beans. But I don't think that is gluten, just a reaction to the beans themselves.

I do avoid foods that are processed on shared equipment most of the time. I also avoid things that make me sick, whether they are gluten-free or not, or made on shared equipment or not, or are organic and healthy or not.

This is my first time posting so hopefully I'e got this in the right place.

I've been diagnosed coeliac disease since Sept 2011 and been gluten-free since about Nov 2011 (didn't have the knowledge of a true gluten-free diet beforehand). Im still getting symptoms every so often though and reading through this it made me think that maybe Im reacting to products labelled gluten-free which aren't really, are you saying that a product can be labelled gluten-free but may still have some small amount of gluten that I could react to? I thought gluten-free would immediately mean that it is and has been tested and is also made in a factory that is gluten-free? And how did you all find out that you're sensitive to less than 5ppm etc?

It is a matter of trial and error. Keeping a journal with what you eat and how you feel can be very helpful. It can reveal other food intolerances as well as trace gluten issues. I try to only add one new food a week so that I can more easily tell what has bothered me if I do have a reaction.
Good luck.

I also have noticed that my "oat essence" hand cream is causing me problems when I touch my face at all.

If it's an allergy reaction, you may also have issues with oats. My issues are allergy-related, and I have problems with even the certified gluten-free oats and oat flours. However, if it is a gluten-free facility that also produces oats and oat flours, it's not as big of a deal for me.

I'd say I'm very sensitive. I've had reactions to lunchmeat sliced on a machine that looked clean, and from fruit cut up on an all purpose cutting board. I don't eat any gluten-free replacement type foods, like bread. I stick to a mostly whole foods diet.
I don't eat anything that says it's made on shared equipment.
