Dizzying Disclaimers!

There's a lot of talk about how gluten molecules cannot enter into the skin.  But I definitely have a reaction to gluten-containing products.  I have done my best this past year to avoid those things and have been good.  But today has been a frustrating day.

Why is it that some foods claim to be gluten-free but yet, I suddenly fall asleep and wake up dizzy?  Then I go back to check the food packages only to find that little disclaimer that says "this product was processed in a wheat facility".  Food manufacturers should not use a gluten-free label if they aren't completely gluten-free.

This is sooo frustrating.  It makes me wonder if I will ever gain the weight that I would like to gain...if I will ever be fully healthy.  Mostly I am optimistic.  But today, I hate this disease!!!

I hate the overall lack of reliable information. And I too cannot eat anything if it isn't made in a wheat free, gluten free facility. Or food that can be labeled gluten free because it contains less than 20ppm. It is very frustrating.

Lex_ I agree with Ennis_Tx. You need to take some Magnesium. It works best as a Magnesium Citrate or Magnesium Glycinate. Magnesium Citrate are easiest to find. Take it 2/day for the first couple weeks to see how much more energy you have. Then you can take it with each ...

I am sorry that I was not clear. I only mentioned your diagnostic background, not to discredit you, but because without any lab results (other than a positive gene test), how can you be sure that gluten (shampoo containing wheat protein) was the actual culprit (not a guess) of your sympt...

The reason I think it was the shampoo? Process of elimination. Our house is almost entirely gluten free (except for this shampoo which slipped through the cracks until I read the ingredient label). My husband has bread that he eats at lunch, but he practices something that resembles aseptic ...

I am just curious. As a scientist (and I am not trying to be rude), how can you determine if hydrologized wheat protein from your husband?s shampoo was actually the culprit? If I recall at your diagnosis, you were seronegative, Marsh Stage I, gene positive, but your doctor still suspected cel...
