Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Well, lately... I have been having my 'mental' gluten symptoms, without being glutened!

It is the same.. Depression, Severe mood swings, anger issues, mind fogginess and short term memory problems...

I know I am not getting gluten, or else I would be having my other symptoms.

Why is it staying all of the time?

Is this normal?

Please help, this is driving me CRAZY!

How is your thyroid, vitamin and mineral levels? Hypothyroid, anemia, b12 and vitamin D deficiency can affect some or all of these.

Consider insulin levels

I have to for my daughter. Think of all the refined products even if gluten-free, and also foods such as potato and banana.

Actually figuring out the Glycemic Index of the foods you are eating.

Hypoglycemia can cause these emotional symptoms.

My daughter tends to have reactive hypoglycemia (IMO) undiagnosed, but watching this has eliminated her seizures.

These were occurring around her TOM and an abundance of insulin can kick up estrogen levels.

Sorry - I am not a doctor but it what I have personally researched and tried in my own home.

Good luck

RobinN and Roda hit the nail on the head...

You might also check yourself and make sure you are not getting CC or small amounts of hidden gluten.

CODEX gluten is enough for me to get the exact symptoms you describe...

Is this due to glycaemic index? Possibly ... A good sublingual B supplement seems to help... but ultimately it is when I take little chances and get caught out that it occurs.

It could also be due to other food intolerances, fx dairy, soy, night shades or others - or perhaps chemical additives; many people have gluten like reactions to some of these. So if this might be likely for you, try to think of what you've eaten when you react like this, perhaps keep a food diary. Or more radically, try an elimination diet, where you start with foods you know are safe for you, and then add in one more item every couple of days. then you'll quickly see what you are reacting to.

Hi Becci,

I had the same issue after I was gluten-free for a while. Turned out that much of the psychological and neuro symptoms I had were actually soy, and in fact they are even worse for me than when I get glutened. I also have issue with some of the nightshades, peppers especially (chili, etc). Tomatoes and Potatoes are OK for me in small quantities. Dairy and Soy both produce depression, and soy triggers anxiety, panic attacks, and neuromuscular issues.

For me inhaled gluten causes some of those symptoms. You might also check for exposure through the skin via toiletries or makeup.... or like some have said try cutting out other foods and see if you see improvement.

I have multiple allergies, so trying to live a healthy lifestyle is a challenge.

Just trace amounts can affect my body.

Even a sneeze. Sometimes, drugstores at certain times of year, where colognes are tested. Even, after I shake the hand of someone who has handled gluten or allergens will trigger a reaction.

I'm experiencing mood swings right now. Aaarrrgh!

The severity of the reactions decreased over time because my digestive tract is healing. My immune system is stronger.

I never realised how sensitive we could be. I was aware of the problem of cc during food prep etc but not of what could happen in a drug store. All rather scary stuff I think.

    Kareng, I think you are fundamentally incorrect in stating that "the point of the (Fasano) diet is not to give someone lots of choices".  The point of the diet is to allow healing by eliminating all potential sources of gluten, not to unnecessarily limit one's food options for no good reason!  The fact that the diet IS rather limiting in food options is a secondary aspect of the diet, not it's primary goal. I do indeed want to follow both the letter and the spirit of the diet, in order to a
    The point of the diet is not to give someone lots of choices.  The point is to severely limit the foods for a short period of time to be absolutely certain no gluten can sneak in.   So the fact that some herbal teas are made with barley might be why they don't want to even chance that.   I would guess that the OJ you described would probably be fine.  The fact is, I have seen people who really are serious about the Gluten Elimination Diet and others that follow parts of it.  I suppose
Hello All, (I"m sorry if this is posted in an inappropriate location --- I was not sure just exactly where this subject would be most appropriately placed.) I have just started the Fasano Gluten Contamination Elimination Diet a few days ago, and I think I have a pretty good understanding of it, but I am still unclear about one aspect of it, and that is processed fruit and vegetable juices. In the Fasano Diet guidelines, it states that "100% fruit and vegetable juices" are permissi
