Probable Endometriosis, in remission from childbirth since 2002.
Hashimoto's DX 2005.
Gluten-Free since 6/2011.
DH (and therefore Celiac) dx from ND.
Responsive to iodine withdrawal for DH (see quote, above).
Genetic tests reveal half DQ2, half DQ8 - I'm a weird bird!

Good luck to you!
PS: I used cream of wheat for my trial. I wanted to have as "pure" of a gluten product as I could so as to not then question if it was some other ingredient causing me issues.
gluten-free since November 2011

Probably like many on this forum, I had unexplained G.I. issues for years. Recently, I decided to eat gluten-free to see if this might help me. I went just a little over 2 months with absolutely no gluten in my diet, which was pretty easy to do except on my birthday (no cake!) and on vacation (no goodies!) Anyway, I reached the end of my gluten-free period, and this week, I'm going to add gluten back into my diet to see if there are any noticeable changes. Does anyone know how long takes for gluten to begin to affect the G.I. system of those who either have celiac, or are gluten-sensitive? That is, if I am sensitive to gluten, will my first piece of wheat toast do me in, or might it take a while? Thanks for your thoughts!
I am betting everyone is different. My sis in law doesn't feel gluten effects until the next day, usually. I feel them within an hour. I get really bad sinus pressure and swollen glands, and an ear ache followed by digestive issues a few hours later but usually I am "ok" the next day, until I eat it again.
