  1. I had my large intestine removed in 2004. Have had 3 blockages since then. In Oct 11 I had over 2/3 of my small intestine removed. As a result I know have what is known as "short bowel syndrome". Since 2007 I have intermittently followed a gluten reduced diet. When I really stick to my plan I do feel much better. However, I believe I have been experiencing many related issues. I am wondering if any one else has experienced Raynaud's, acid reflux, refined sugar sensitivity, joint/bone pain, anxiety and/or cold sores before going entirely gluten free. Beginning tomorrow I am going to go gluten and refined sugar free. Given the short bowel I will have difficulty with too much roughage from fruits and vegetables. Has any one else dealt with this. Thank you.
