Help, I Can't Figure Out What's Causing The D

It could be corn or soy. Or dairy after all. Or maybe tapioca or sorghum, who knows? I am afraid you'll have to play detective and use the ingredients from what you made somehow one at a time to see if you react.

It doesn't sound like it is gluten. So, it must be something else.

Pasta or rice is rice. I guess you aren't intolerant to rice. But those flour mixes have a lot of different ingredients, and it appears to be one of those.

Shortly after I went gluten free, and started to incorporate more items with corn, I became intolerant to corn. As soon as it was removed from my diet, my D stopped! You may want to try it and see what happens--even if you try it for a week or two. I know it stinks, :P but your health is worth it! Good luck.

If gluten is your problem, and you've only been gluten free for 3 weeks, then I would assume you haven't fully healed yet. It may not be another food intolerance.

Healing doesn't happen overnight. Even if you are 100% gluten free, your body still needs time to adjust.

I see a few things I'd suspect if it were me.

First, one mix has honey, which I've heard can have gluten. Then there's the yeast. Also, corn products and corn starch aren't necessarily equally safe. Some corn is organic, others are GMO, which I know I react to. I'm not entirely convinced that it need be a common ingredient, but I agree it's a good place to start. The cane juice I don't know much about, as I don't do sugar.

As for guar gum being a laxative, that's what Wikipedia says, but recently I read the opposite :unsure: From my experience I'd have to disagree with Wikipedia this time, sadly. It's the insoluble type which is used in laxative products isn't it?

Here's what Wikipedia says about dietary fiber:

Sources of dietary fiber are usually divided according to whether they are water-soluble or not. Both types of fiber are present in all plant foods, with varying degrees of each according to a plant

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?
