Husband 10 Days Gluten Free...feeling Great!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

We are both amazed at how good he has been feeling. He can't remember the last time he felt so good. 10 days of no indigestion and no fatigue. His D did appear a little yesterday he said but it wasn't as bad as it had been. Christmas day was tough and maybe he ingested some gluten by accident with all the gluten foods sitting around. It was very tough on him...drooling over the cookies and baked goods. He held out though and stuck to all gluten free foods. I was so proud of him. I can tell his mom is sort of thinking that he's going a little too far with staying gluten free...as she claims she's only bothered by things that say "whole wheat" and never has problems with flour. Which I don't get...unless there's something in whole wheat that isn't in white flour? (any ideas on that). She is also lactose intolerant. My theory from what I've been reading....she is very wheat intolerant (possibly celiac) and her lactose intolerance would disappate if she went totally gluten free for some time. However, she's insists that she has things under control...so I'll let it be :P Anyway, she also understands how my husband feels though...and will do everything she can to accomidate him when he visits....which is often since his dad passed away from Pancreatic cancer in March.

So ....my next goal is to get my kids gluten free. This is going to be a tough one. Anyone recommend a good cookbook for gluten free eating...or any other books that would help me along this journey. If I decide to go completely gluten free as a household I need to be able to find meals and replacements for the kids..so there are foods they will actually eat. I have a feeling my girls will benefit the most...with all their symptoms....which could all be related to being glutened.

Thanks for all the advice too. This forum is a life saver :)

I have simple taste and simple cooking skills. I really enjoy the cookbook "beyond ricecakes" that has great snack items, entree's, and desserts, that are so easy to make. In my opinion it also would cater to kid taste. So glad to hear that your husband is feeling better!

I really like the cookbook Nearly Normal Cooking for Gluten free eating, by Jules Shepard. It has a good variety and everything , so far, has been good. Try some recipes off of websites. Also go through your regular cookbooks and see which recipes don't have gluten in them. You'll be surprised at how many there are.

What are your iron results?  Was ferritin (iron stores) taken?  Are you actually anemic (low hemoglobin)?  The results you posted are your Immunoglobulins.  Looks like your IgE is high, but then it is Spring and allergy season is supposed to be pretty bad this year (at least in the US).  What riggers your allergies (e.g. cats, horses, mold, etc.)? Have other autoimmune issues been ruled out that could cause tendinitis or vertigo?
