In Topic: Digestion Problems With Amaranth?

10 March 2009 - 03:00 PM

Ηey I am sorry you felt sick.

well amaranth is hard to digest (buckwheat is also hard) so you have to soak them first. this is a common "secret" for these grains. you can also soak nuts before consuming them. I think this will work good for you.


In Topic: Glutenings Worse After Going gluten-free?

05 March 2009 - 07:47 AM

I am newly diagnosed, and have not yet gone fully gluten-free. Pretty much, and then after my daughter's bday next week, I will do it fully. I don't question the need to do it, I know it has to be done. But my question is this....after reading so much on here, one huge fear I have is, that I will feel worse after I go gluten-free when I come in contact with gluten.

Right now, I don't really have any symptoms...some gas and constipation, which I have always had, but I assume it is from celiac now. So, when I am completely gluten-free, and I accidentally come in contact or have CC, am I going to have a massive reaction, even though I have never had one before? Is it going to actually make me feel worse? Am I setting myself up to have a huge immune reaction?

My sister discovered she was allergic to wheat a year ago. Before that she had no symptoms. Now, when she does come in contact with it, on accident, she feels horrible for hours.

This really scares me. Especially since now, I am don't feel like that :(

Hello and welcome!

Good for you that you realize the need to go gluten free! You'll see that things get easier as time goes by.

It is a fact that when you go gluten free then you become very sensitive to gluten. But take it as a good thing. You will always be sure that you are / or aren't glutened. Otherwise, you would still get gluten from hidden sources - and you would still damage yourself without knowing it. Especially in the beginning it is very common to get cross contamination or get hidden gluten.

So take it as a wise way that your body has in order to warn you!


In Topic: Missed/late Periods After Going Gluten Free?

02 March 2009 - 02:30 AM

Me too I have NEVER missed not one day my period, and immediately after going gluten free I started having the most irregular ones. Sometimes it would be 2 weeks earlier, other times 5 days later etc etc. I don't know why...

add one food every 4 days and right down your reactions. the reactions may come within 2-72 hours, that is why you must wait for 4 days before you introduce something else.

Why do I need to eliminate lactose?

cause if you have damaged villy it is really possible that you have lactose intolerance too. you may go gluten free and see no change until you eliminate lactose too. Also it will be much easier for you body to cope with lactose right now even if you are not intolerant to it. Later , when your villy is healed, you will gradualy re-introduce it!
