I started getting sick in high school randomly and it started getting worse in college (I am 22). I had an old roommate with Celiac disease so I thought I would try seeing if I had a food allergy since I kind of knew how that all worked. Well, gluten was making me sick so I got tested for Celiac after I already started the diet. I was told I did not have Celiac but to just stay away from it. I cheated a lot on the diet at first because it was hard but now I have been at it for about 6 months and do not really cheat anymore because I know how sick it makes me.

In the past few months, I have slowly felt like the pain is coming back. When I eat gluten, I normally throw up. This is not happening but I have stomach pains, my throat gets super dry, my chest starts hurting, gassy, I get heart burn and I just feel weird. I do not eat anything with gluten in it so I don't know what it is. I do not wanna go to the doctor even though I know I should because i do not have time for all the testing.

I was just wondering if anyone else ever had this problem and what they did. I have read that I should probably cut out dairy but I am in denial that that is it because gluten is hard enough to cut out. Is it possible I am just getting more sensitive and its a CC problem? I did notice that when I eat french fries, I start getting a horrible stomach ache and terribly gassy.I used to eat them with no problem. I eat them with ranch, so I don't know if its CC with the fries or the ranch. Any advice would be great :)

Hi, our family has just done the elimination diet which is how we discovered my daughter is celiac (not tested). It is pretty full on and involved eliminating all reactive foods (doesn't leave much) and after symptoms go away then reintroduce each food group to see if there's a reaction.

Also reactions can be delayed so it's not always clear what is causing the symptoms.

Good luck, Ann

Simple solution? Quit cheating... period. If it makes you feel like that, why the heck do you eat it?

At any rate, its probably a CC issue. Fryers can be used for many things that are gluteny. Unless a resteraunt has a dedicated one, then its a no go. As for the ranch it depends on the company. Sometimes gluten is in salad dressing sometimes it isn't.

I've been gluten free for a year and about a half. I'm a college student. I refuse to eat at any of the eateries on campus because A: i spent two years in the dorms and i know well enough what goes on and how little it takes for things to get CC'd. B; when i asked the new eatery what they had gluten free they said they only had a pizza. It was cooked along side gluteny ones.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
