In Topic: Who Has The Guts For Gluten? - New York Times

"Gluten is absolutely necessary for most people to survive - that is why it is called vital wheat gluten"

In Topic: First Post :) Gluten Associated Neurological Symptoms

11 February 2013 - 04:25 PM

here's a list of what was causing my symptoms.
migrains, brain fog - rice alergy, wheat/rye alergy - including inhaled wheat around bakeries, pizza places, I don't need to eat my allergens to get sick. Even someone else warming up rice gave me two days of bad migrain.
brain fog, orthostatic hypotension - yeast overgrowth and glutenning
fatigue - anything mentioned above plus nightshades and low blood pressure
loss of hunger - glutening and something else I still can't figure out - seems like I only get this when my thyroid is hyperactive which usualy happens a couple of days after gluten exposure.

Hope it helps a little. I know how hard it is to find what's causing which symptom. It took me about a year to figure the rice alergy since most of the rice products can also be cc with wheat so I always blamed cross contamination.

In Topic: Does Coffee And Strong Tea Put Anyone Over The Edge And Give You Celiac Like...

02 January 2013 - 09:45 AM

I sometimes get very bad stomach cramps and D after drinking coffee or black tea. It happens about one out of 10 times and mostly when I don't put milk, other than that I haven't the slightest clue why I get this reaction. It's not my gluten symptoms so no cc involved.

In Topic: Caramel Coloring?

13 December 2012 - 02:16 PM

Caramel color is one of those celiac urban myths that just won't go away.

Here is Shelley Case's take on it, from Gluten-Free Diet A Comprehensive Resource Guide:
[Emphasis in original]

And part of this urban legend is that this high level of processing removes all the gluten (or other allergen). Sensitive individuals DO react even to these highly processed ingredients. On the other side, I never had problems with caramel coloring or glucose syrup here in America. Can't say the same about Europe.

In Topic: Low Stomach Acid After Glutening

I had the same problem before going gluten-free and twice after bad glutenning - each time it took me about 3 months to get better.
