Gluten challenge. Random reactions of gluten sensitivity (brain fog)

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

hi all,

I have brain fog and I suspect that is due to gluten sensitivity.  When I became aware of those symptoms in the past, I did an elimination diet, and gluten introduction  seemed to correlate with the perceived brain fog

Then, I was off gluten for a year, but because it is self-diagnosed it is not always easy to explain it and remain 100% gluten free when, for example, travelling or invited to someone's house for dinner. So, I thought I wanted to get to the bottom of this and check for celiac decease first.

I have been doing a gluten challenge for the last 4 weeks, and my symptoms are very strange. Sometimes, I eat a slice of cake or a croissant and I can be tired and foggy for the whole day.  Strangely,  there are other times where i can eat bread or a full pizza and have no symptoms at all. Beer is strange, sometimes it affects me, sometimes it does not at all... I am not sensitive to Pasta so far...

I am very confused. I thought that maybe it was because the consumed gluten quantity but there does not seem to be any correlation at all. Sometimes, I think that it has to be something else (not the gluten) that is causing those reactions. I cannot understand the random reaction to gluten. 

Does anybody have a similar experience or an insight or what could be going on?

Thanks!!!

Mixy,

It seems to me you should never have to explain to anyone else what your dietary plan is, and you should never have to eat food that do not correlate with that plan. 

Since you suspect gluten, and because you are eating gluten now, then it might be a good idea to talk to your doctor about whether it is gluten or some other food additive that is making you feel ill. 

I personally think it's better to get a diagnosis from the doctor, even if it turns out to be something other than what you suspected.
