  1. After many visits to Doctors over the past few years one of my doctors has begun to suspect that I have a 'gluten sensitivity' and has recommended a gluten-free diet. So for the past 3 weeks I have not knowingly ingested any gluten what-so-ever. I have been suffering for quite some time, so i don't expect an abrupt turn around in 3 weeks. But my question is related to my workplace. I currently work in a cafeteria where i stand in front of a deep fryer all day long, cooking foods packed with gluten. Is it possible that the fumes I am inhaling may be causing me harm? This may be a dumb question, but I've seen very little if any progress in the past 3 weeks, and would like to rule out whatever I can, as i have been very true to the diet. Just for the record, my symptoms include, Extreme fatigue (with no relief). brain fog. inability to concentrate. Knee and foot pain. irritable bowels. all blood work thus far has been ok. My thyroid checks out good. Sleep studys show that i am a sound sleeper. Thanks for any help you can provide!
