Wondering If I Should Try Gluten?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been gluten free for about 3 months now but I'm still getting the lightheadedness and hungry every 2 hours.

I never got official diagnosis, I've had two sets of bloods in the past two weeks. I should of asked them to do a gluten sensitivity test but the blood tests were so close to the time I went to the doctors I thought it wouldn't show up.

Anyway I'm thinking should I try something with gluten/wheat in it to see if it makes a difference? Like normal pasta. I've had little bits of it the other day, like chocolate with wheat flour in and I have no other symptoms.

Why not?  You don't know if you have Celiac.  Maybe its has nothing to do with gluten?  If you do have Celiac, you can eat a regular gluten containing diet for a few months and then get Celiac blood tests.  Unfortunately, there are currently no legitimate tests for "gluten sensitivity".

My GI diagnosed gluten sensitivity and actually recommended I go back on gluten to see if it caused harm. It's been 2.5 years, but now I'm having the same symptoms as last time when I finally went gluten-free to rid myself of them. I didn't suffer immediate issues at all, but today I have many that are now clearing up slowly after just a few days so far of being gluten-free again. Sticking to it this time because the last 2.5 years was a test to confirm his diagnosis. I had many symptoms, but I didn't put it all together that they were gluten related. I just thought I was getting older and had joint pain, back pain, skin issues and brain fog.

 

Only one way to know for sure and that's to eat it again and note any changes in your body. If you go gluten-free again later and they clear....there's your answer.
