That' pretty much my story too. I kept getting siock from things that were supposedly gluten-free but were made on shared lines. So I avoid those products now. But I also found that I have multiple other fod intolerances that were causing symptoms and keeping me in a constant state of irritation and making me more sensitive always. Now that I have identified those other food intolerances and got them out of my diet, I have much less trouble generally. But I still avoid shared lines food products and most processed food also.
Hey, did anyone notice they made a new sub-forum for super sensitive psillys here?
.... Is there something in bread or flour that our joints/cartilage depends on? Thanks.
I don't think there is anything in gluten that our joints depend on. If there were, every gluten-free person on this board would be having joint pain. I have had joint pain but it stopped when I got off nightshades. Other people have reported joint pain from nightshades also.
You can't heal your intestine overnight by not eating gluten. It takes time. You also may think you are gluten free but not really be gluten free. Gluten is in many different foods where you would not expect it.
I had bleeding also but it did stop after I had been gluten-free for awhile. I am not talking days but months. That doesn't mean it will take that long for you, and it doesn't mean you won't be getting improvements everyday as you go along each day on the diet.
Happy campers are what we strive for! I had lactose intolerance for years and thot that was the cause of my problems. I even reacted to bread with little amount of dairy they put in it. So I took lactaid pills when I ate bread. Duh! It never really worked. I still can't eat dairy but I feel oodles better off gluten.
Yes, it is still possible to have celiac with negative tests. If you want to be tested you need to stay on your regular gluteney diet until the testing is done. Otherwise the antibodies will start declining and the testing won't work. There is around a 20% false negative test rate, so it is still good to do the gluten-free diet even if the tests are negative.
Sometimes if I'm constipated (which I am alot) I can get D just from the build up. Like if I don't go for several days and then eat something fatty or greasy (even if it's gluten free) I will suddenly get bad diarrhea and everything comes out. I don't know if that's your issue but it's happened to me enough times to suspect that it's not necessarily gluten just backed up bowels. Then again I've always wondered about it
What you are describing is part of a typical food intolerance reaction for me. C first and then D as the body rids itself of the offending "food". I figure the C part is basically a temporary freeze-up of the intestines as they are freaking out over the nasty stuff they are loaded with. Just my opinion, but when they get past the shock they purge the crap. Literally.
So if you are having this reaction regularly I'd suggest checking everything you eat and try eliminating some items that could be causing it. It is not normal digestion.
I agree, explosions are something MB always find a way to fit in. Big kids get big explosions! They could blowup a truckload of wheat and test the remains for gluten. I wouldn't cry over some destroyed wheat.
I forgot sweet potatoes in the nuker for 10 minutes. Split them in half after cooking and drizzle on a little olive oil then sugar and cinnamon.
Or wraps made with brown rice tortillas and some kind of pre-cooked meat, chicken, turkey or hamburger usually. Run water over both sides of the brown rice wraps before microwaving so they are soft enough to fold. A little soy-free mayo, greens, some salt and pepper and you are all set. Or add a fried egg also. Lately I've been adding some Daiya faux cheese. Quick and easy.
Regardless of what you decide about proceeding with the testing, there is no reason you can't start upping your vitamins now. You could start taking sub-lingual B-12 and a B-complex now and it might help with the nerve issues.
