My 5 Gum Bothers Me

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

So I haven't been eating gluten and lactose for about 8 months now, with a few slip ups not realizing it. But anyway i know something else was bothering my stomach too. I've been chewing 5 gum and even though i read it's gluten free, i always have to crap if i chew it, and i get stomach pains. I get so embarrassed. Is it something in the gum?

Are there artifical sugars in it? That can cause issues for some folks.

Do you know the old joke - " Doctor! It hurts when I do this!". Doc - " Then don't do that!"

Stop chewing gum of any kind and see if it stops. There are artificial sugars that are hard on lots of people ( even non- Celiacs). Also, the act of chewing makes the stomach start producing acids to digest the food that it thinks is on it's way. If that is the issue, any gum will cause it.
