Up until this morning, all of my drs told me that gluten was not my problem..well ok I did have 2 tell me it was possibly gluten intolerance but the other 2 told me absolutley it was NOT Gluten.
So I kept eating bread. I kept eating donuts and cake. When people said to me "I thought you couldnt have it" I would just say, I can have whatever I want!
In my head, if it wasn't going to kill me, then I could deal with it. To me, without a "diagnosis" and without people believing that it was gluten, then I would just keep eating it and believe that it was something else.
I also just rationalized, its ok, I will eat this donut and be really sick but it usually passes in about 2-3 hours so I will lay down.
REALLY! Thats what I told myself..eat what you want and then lay down until it passes! Because unlike other people, my symptoms do pass in a few hours but it SUCKS while it is happening!!
Gluten intolerance is a real thing. Its a problem. Doesnt matter if a Dr "diagnoses" you or not, its there.
This morning, my dr finally diagnosed me as Celiac, believing that I am at the very early stages. After researching, she NOW believes that gluten intolerance is the beginning stages of full blown Celiac Disease, so she just cut to the chase and said to start living a gluten-free lifestyle now to head it off...
I don't know if it's true, and I think many many many Drs dont really know...yet. But if you feel better when you DONT eat bread/pasta then DO NOT EAT IT!
I had the reverse happen..I keep gaining weight. uncontrollably, it seems. I gained 30 pounds in a month and a half. I went off glute for 3 weeks and lost 6pounds. I started eating gluten and gained 10 pounds..in TWO WEEKS! its crazy how your body reacts, some people lose...some people gain. its CRAZY!
but I say...please stop eating it. It doesn't love you .
