Can I Cheat A Little?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Diagnosed with Celiac four years ago. I eat corn flakes, Kix cereal which have some malt flavoring. No stomach problems but my legs are feeling kind of weak> Could this be a problem arising out of eating this kind of food. I never have had any stomach problems ever. Would you folks give me some advice about this problem? It may not even be tied (weakness in legs) to the cereal. Thanks in advance for your help.

Are you kidding??? :blink: No gluten is okay for a celiac. Certainly, you know this. If you never had a stomach problem, you have no "warning signal". When you ingest gluten, you kick up the autoimmune response.

Stop it right now... and see if the weak legs go away.

There's your answer. ;)

and a PS...my legs are weak from gluten and you have no idea what damage you may be doing, hon!

The stomach and intestines are not the only organs affected by celiac. Your 'cheating a little' could be impacting your brain and nervous system. Please go with something like Chex or another gluten free cereal and get strict with the diet. You don't want that weakness to progress to the point where you start to have trouble with walking or other issues that may take months or years to resolve. You also don't want to find out that your 'cheating a little' has lead to something like lymphoma.
