Do stomach cramps come only because gluten is ingested, and only a reaction to gluten OR

does gluten do enough damage to cause other foods to cause pain in the digestive process?

This would be pre-diagnostic... so the damage could be there.

For instance, I send my daughter with crushed fruit but the acidity in the fruit causes stomach burning b/c of obvious damage in there.

Would this happen to someone who currently is eating gluten or does it only happen as a result of gluten as it's passing through the digestive tract?

Hope that was clear.

They happen because gluten is ingested and as a reaction to gluten, but not ONLY.

does gluten do enough damage to cause other foods to cause pain in the digestive process?

Yes, because of the damage. That is why it takes a few days/weeks/months to feel better after going gluten free ... because the body is still healing.

OK - so I read somwhere else on the boards that starting out with basics such as fruit, veggies, meat etc. is maybe the way to go in the beginning - basically leaving out even the gluten free breads.

I was told by my Dr before going through a bunch of tests to try changing my diet and see if there is any improvement - this was last week and I am feeling sooooo much better, but still get some back pain around the same time every day. I am assuming this is "normal" maybe just getting all the leftovers out of my system.

I have been reading the boards for a few days now and there is a lot of help and it is very appreciated.

Hope everyone has a feel good day! :)

Hi mosaicmom, I tend to agree with happygirl, when I did my trial diet, I found I could no longer eat many of the raw veggies ..can't do apples either...Must just be too hard on my system right now as i'm too new at this.
