Monomae ... thanks I am going to check in to the Synthroid, maybe you are right. The pharmacy does have a note that my meds are supposed to be gluten free but you never know.
Cyclinglade ... sorry I didn't get a copy of the results of my tests. I am due for another set of tests in April or so and will ask for a copy of the results. I am just so fed up right now.
The shortness of breath seems to be gone. The chest x-ray and stress test were good. Still getting the occasional sweating spell which I can live with.
But I am still getting frequent diarrhea. I am at a loss as to why. I have not consumed any gluten that I know off. The other day I was searching on Google for a substitute flour and came across an article saying that xanthum gum is now being made with wheat but in the process the gluten is supposed to be eliminated. Has any one heard of this? If that is the case maybe that is why I am getting the diarrhea. I hope that is not the case. In the article she said that we didn't really need the xanthum gum.
This is a statement they said is from Bob's Red Mill ... “Regarding corn in xanthan gum: The microorganism that produces xanthan gum is actually fed a glucose solution that is derived from wheat starch. Gluten is found in the protein part of the wheat kernel and no gluten is contained in the solution of glucose. Additionally, after the bacteria eats the glucose, there is no wheat to be found in the outer coating that it produces, which is what makes up xanthan gum. The short answer here is, there is no corn used at all in the making of xanthan gum.”
This is the link to the article ... http://www.glutenfre...en-free-baking/
Now I am going to do some research on synthroid and xanthum gum.
