Glutened By Cat Litter?
Posted 11 July 2012 - 06:56 PM
65 years old. Diagnosed with GERD at age 63. Started feeling bloated after eating bread & rolls in 2012. After doing online research ate gluten-free for a week & symptoms resolved. Symptoms returned when I glutened. That's good enough for me. Because testing is often inconclusive will not get tested. In 2012 had colonoscopy and endoscopy which showed no damage to the villi. In February, 2013 had capsule endoscopy which showed no damage to the villi or intestines. Diagnosed by gastroenterologist with 'probable non-Celiac sensitivity. Time to get serious before damage occurs.

And yes some people have reactions just from touching gluten.

I wouldn't use the wheat based since I don't want to breathe in the dust and kitties will track the wheat all over and when they clean their paws they can distribute the wheat all through their coats. The same applies to pet food with wheat ingredients.
