#749710 Purposely Glutened

Posted by Happytobefree on 22 November 2011 - 03:14 AM

Wow.

Treat yourself to a gluten-free candy bar or a carton of gluten-free icecream. You can do the same type of unhealthy eating with out the glutening yourself, if it makes you feel better. At the least keep gluten free junk around to pull out in emergencies. You can walk off candy bars but you won't be walking if you keep this up.

#658930 This Is Silly, I'm Staying gluten-free!

Posted by Happytobefree on 07 December 2010 - 11:55 AM

So, my GI doc told me to "liberlize" my diet and go ahead and eat wheat, gluten, etc. My endoscopy is next Wed. Yesterday I ate what I wanted (a pretzel, scone, starbucks coffe, milk...and paid the price!!) I know for sure that the Celiac diet has helped me this past week, so when I ate what I wanted yesterday, it wasn't worth it! The horrible gas and abdominal pain! So, I'm gluten-free again, and I will take that chance. I'm sure my gut won't heal in 1 week! I'm sure I've had this for years.
It's as if the Dr. said "we know Gluten is poisoning you, but go ahead and eat it so we can make sure your biopsy is positive.". Crazy, if you ask me. so, if my biopsy comes up neagtive, it would be a miracle to be cured in 1 week. My blood tests were highly positive, so I will go by that.
I am getting the endoscopy, but I will eat gluten-free and not suffer...


I went this route also, but you have to intake gluten daily for a minimum of 4 weeks to get visible damage in your stomach and/or intestine. I think my GI thinks I am nuts because all my symptoms couldn't be proven. I had been gluten free for a year and a half before I went to get tested. I was so scared of intake and had forgotten exactly how I felt when I ingested gluten. I got a painful reminder, but I journaled all my experiences so I could inspire myself to live without. I held up for 2 to 3 weeks of the 2 month period my GI requested I ingest gluten. I will not do that again. I know I am so much better off without.

Good luck.
