  1. Thank you all for the information, very helpful I think it might be best if I just avoid anything with ''May contain X'', as I don't really struggle eating Gluten free as it is. I have not been tested for celiac. I should get tested just in case, I'm willing to try anything now days to feel even a tad better. On research on Arachnoid cysts, some sufferers have coped a lot better since turning Gluten Free as it's supposed to cut down the inflammation on the brain.
  2. Hi everyone, I have recently started cutting gluten out of my diet completely, in a bid to start feeling better as I have a Arachnoid Cyst on the brain. My cyst is not life threatening but life changing.. I had done research on alternative options to feeling better and gluten free was one of them, which I'm going to follow for the rest of my life if I get any kind of improvement. Now for the question as I don't have an allergy to gluten, would products listed as ''May contain traces of wheat'' for example, effect my chances of hopefully having a positive effect on my body? Thank you for taking your time to read my question, I really appreciate it.
