So can one have both stomach issues from fructan and other issues from gluten?

why do NCGS have joint, muscle, mood, skin, neuropathy to gluten?

imho I don't think you can put it in a nice box 

NCGS is just bloating from fructan ..... 

I would be interested to see how they explain all the non bloat celiac immune like symptoms beyond bloat

There is nothing in this that looks at extra intestinal symptoms. And frankly, when I’m glutened, I suffer the consequences for weeks. AND I’m more sensitive to lots of foods.  AND I did my gluten challenge with vital wheat gluten because I knew the GI doc was going to try to pin it on the FODMAPS.  What about folks like us??

Since there is no test to actually confirm NCGS and tease out other intolerances or conditions that are alleviated with the removal of grains, these studies are useless. But the media (and my daughter’s GI doc) love to toss the blame there without looking further.

Then there’s the fact that any food intolerance contributes to gut dysbiosis, which in turn is a trigger for intestinal permeability and immune system response.  Even those with NCGS have a higher prevalence of autoimmune diseases (can’t remember the exact study).

I'm glad that research is being carried out but looking at GI symptoms only is not enough..

'We performed a double-blind crossover challenge of 59 individuals on a self-instituted gluten-free diet, for whom celiac disease had been excluded. The study was performed at Oslo University Hospital in Norway from October 2014 through May 2016. Participants were randomly assigned to groups placed on diets containing gluten (5.7 g), fructans (2.1 g), or placebo, concealed in muesli bars, for 7 days. Following a minimum 7-day washout period (until the symptoms induced by the previous challenge were resolved), participants crossed over into a different group, until they completed all 3 challenges (gluten, fructan, and placebo). Symptoms were measured by gastrointestinal symptom rating scale irritable bowel syndrome (GSRS-IBS) version. A linear mixed model for analysis was used.'

"AND I did my gluten challenge with vital wheat gluten because I knew the GI doc was going to try to pin it on the FODMAPS.  What about folks like us??"

That was an excellent idea. I see more on fructan and Fodmaps and it was mentioned to me prior to my challenge . I could not finish my challenge and could eat fructan/Fodmaps foods before the challenge.  I did get a whole mess of problems and intolerance s after.err r . They still linger on.

I often wonder if fructan is the new sought after (du jour)  research topic. I just think ummm I think you left out some others ....

NCGS May not be  easy to study and they decide to throw that baby out with the bath water .... and let's study fructan instead.

Edit auto correct keeps changing fructan
