Can They Be Gluten Related?

Recommended Posts

In my family I'm not the possible celiac, autistic or wheat allergic so I decided to have me a sandwich at a store this weekend. I am now having a hemorrhoid flare up. I have not had a flare up since going gluten free with my guys. I thought I may have a mild problem with gluten but not this much. My Enterolab results were on the border but it was the safe side of the border--or so I thought.

Are hemorrhoid issues common with gluten issues?

Was it just one of those freak timing things??

I don't think it was a conincidence. I have to carry baby wipes around with me when I get accidentally glutened because of the pain and there seems to be some extra irritation.

Did you ask Enterolab if you were on the "safe" side? Just a thought...they seem helpful. Maybe you should call/email them?

I have DH and when I get a bad glutening I get a flare and blistering. No Fun. Hemmies are now no issue for me without the gluten in the picture, but for many gluten may not be the only reason for a flare.
