  1. I was fooled by a label today! Being newly aware of my allergy, I was cleaning out my freezer of gluten. It was around lunch time and I was looking for food as well. I figured all of the Banguet dinners were infected, but I read the labels anyway. I found one that looked to be gluten-free. The brocoli, cheese and rice one....so I popped it in the oven. While it was cooking I had a non diarrhea trip to the bathroom and congratulated myself on my steady progress. Needless to say - within 10 minutes of eating the damn food...it was the same old run to the bathroom, but it has not lasted all afternoon. Maybe I am slowly detoxing my body and the reaction was over fairly quickly. Is the work "gluten" hidden in other ingredients? Please advise. Thanks, linda
  2. I feel better after only 2 weeks. Better is relative. I only have diarrhea 1x every few days...when I used to have hourly BMs. I feel like nutrition is actually getting back into my body.
  3. michneva, I, like you, am guessing at this intolerance. For the last 10 years I have had constant diarreah, fatique, depression and a general feeling of malnutrition. It was only when I read an article in Today's Woman magazine about wheat intolerance that I changed my diet. I AM AMAZED! I have lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks and my dirreah is not as bad as it ussually is. I have read the message board and see that many folks have worse symptoms than I do...but I am convinced that this is a problem for me. I do not have insurance...so will continue on with this diet. I have added flaxseed meal (gluten free) and a lot of fruit and nuts. Fortunately, I do not eat many prepackaged meals...because they upset my stomach so bad. I had no idea why! I just avoided them. The added fiber in the fruit seems to be something my previous diet was missing. I thought pasta had fiber! I thought I had too much fiber! So I would eat more pasta! More diarrhea. Then I tried the all wheat pasta...boy that did NOT help the problem. I have been so confused...this makes sense to me. I appreciate reading the messages that you more experienced folks post...thank you! Linda
