Gluten Free

6 posts in this topic

I'm curious to know how long it took for you all to start noticing health improvement once you cut gluten from your diet? I won't have my endoscopy for at least a month and am considering cutting gluten for a week just to see if I notice any difference. I have constant muscle aches and have been diagnosed with benign fasiculation syndrome and have read that this could be caused by my low Vit D. As I posted earlier my blood tests came back negative so if I respond positively to cutting the gluten then I can always load up again before I schedule the endoscopy.

You might have trouble going back on gluten after being off it for even a week. Our bodies react more strongly to it when we've been away from it for a while. So yeah, you might notice a positive change in the way you feel in only a week, but I doubt it would be worth the negative change in the way you feel when you start eating it again.

Take this time to enjoy all of the gluteny things you will never be able to eat again. Even though we eat well, there are some things that can't be duplicated. Have some donuts! Have some clamcakes. If you know someone who makes homemade bread like my Mom used to do, have a whole loaf, fresh out of the oven. Put lots of butter on it while you're at it in case you develop an intolerance to dairy.

And then, once you go gluten-free, if you can, learn to cook so you can make your own substitutes instead of having to buy them all like I (the most incompetent cook in the world) do.

I'd agree it may be hard to back on again. I had a short break gluten-free and then ate it again after the lab lost my results (grr). It was much worse much more quickly when I ate gluten the second time.

Don't do it. I went off gluten for a week after my blood tests, not realizing I needed to be on it for the endoscopy. I'm much more sensitive now even after that short time. Not feeling well at all.

So don't do it. Just wait until after the endoscopsy.

I agree, I had stopped eating it for 9 days and then dr told me i had to eat it again for 6 weeks before I could have a blood test/endescopy and when I started eating it again i felt awful, especially the first few days back on it

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
