My cat knew I was pregnant and went bananas.

Mind you, cats are not much good for training :)

- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!
- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol
- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

I too have a sensitive nose. As a mom to 3 boys and a red neck husband, I consider this to be a curse. LOL

I'll have to pay attention to that. I know my smells change throughout the month and when I am unwell. I've never noticed a gluten smell. Neat.

And yeah, why don't they use dogs for cancer sniffing. It's got to be cheaper than MRI's and tonnes of tests.

My hubby has a sensitive nose. If I've spent several days in bed, he says the room begins to have "that smell". He also says it's not particularly bad, but stale. The skin is an organ and I don't think it's outside the realm of possibility that we give off an odor when our organs are taxed. He hasn't really said that much since I've been gluten-free.
