I've been "gluten free" for over a year now. I only say "gluten free" because I still had intermittent bouts of illness and only recently found the final source of gluten in my life. I'd attributed my illness to accidents until I read about Rice Dream and their controversial barley enzymes.

Holy crap! I've been drinking that for a while. Before I even knew what gluten was. Why didn't I look that up?

Anyway, I changed milk brands 5 days ago and rejoiced in slaying the final bit of gluten in my life.

After a day or so, my stomach was constantly in discomfort. I was gassy, had some mean D, and even more rampant dehydration with it. A day later, the symptoms were still there, along with a headache and the feeling that I was going to pass out. I felt week, I couldn't understand what was going on. Then it clicked and searched online for Gluten withdrawals.

I just want some advice, because I had no idea it was going to get so much worse before it got better! I've slept with the garbage next to my bed for the last 3 nights.

I'm already taking probiotics and doing my best to hydrate myself... I've seen people say it lasted weeks, even months! Should I expect a quicker recovery since I was ingesting a relatively small amount of gluten, rather than an average gluten-filled diet? Is there anything else I can do to make this go even slightly quicker?

Thank you!

Oh, so sorry to hear you have suffered that. I also have a gluten intolerant friend that uses rice dream consistently. Could you tell me where you found the information about barley in Rice Dream? I take it it is not on the label? I can't tell how long it will take to get better, but you can help your body by getting plenty of water and sleep. Take some down time if you can. Watch out for gluten in everything.

Get well soon,

Diana

One of those threads is 6 years old and the other 4 years old. You might want to check with the company for any up to date info on a product.
