So it's been a few months since my blood test and i've been eating white bread products and having no issues. So today I figured what they hey and ate some 5 grain cereal with with rye and barley in it and also a sandwhich made with 15 grain whole wheat bread. I have such bad gas and my stomach is cramping now. Only oddity on my bloodwork that was 11 which was equivocal. >11 was negative. I don't know what too think but its def crazy. Anyone have a reaction only when they eat the grains themselves and not by products?

It may have been alot of more fiber than the white bread you were eating. Suddenly adding extra fiber can give you gas.

Ain't life grand? :blink:

Or the white bread is more processed, and some of the gluten is destroyed.

I could buy this. There was about a 5 year period of time where my health was in decline but some of my symptoms came back off and on. Looking back now, my worst health was during times when I was trying to eat "healthy" by adding more whole grain products such as whole wheat pasta, pearled barley and multigrain bread. For a while I was actually adding wheat germ to my oatmeal because I thought it would make me healthier! :blink: I never felt so sick as when I was eating a "whole grain" diet and even now I cringe when I see commercials touting their products as healthier because they contain whole grains (usually menaing whole wheat).

This exact thing happened to me too. Back when whole wheat was the big health kick I just overloaded with it... have never felt so bad in my life. It has always made me wonder if doing that didn't push me over the edge into complete Celiac-dom.

Interestingly enough, I too used to be able to eat really white/processed bread, but haven't risked it in a few years.
