An Open Letter to Skeptical Health Care Practitioners
Some of that brand are gluten-free , but they will say they are. Some of their bars are not gluten-free because they do not use gluten-free oats.
If you are eating non- gluten-free oats or products made with them, there is a possibility that some are actually gluten-free and some aren't. So maybe a small amount of gluten has built up until it bothered you? Or you got lucky until recently? For a Celiac, some people don't feel a response until their antibodies have built up from repeated gluten exposures.
Maybe it has nothing to do with gluten...
I know. this will be my first celiac diagnosed halloween. ever where I go I see kit kats which were my favorite. I plan to get some m&m for myself. I still hear from people that 1 won't hurt you, but they don't understand .
I have a sensitivity to gluten, and I have been gluten free for a while. Today I started having a terrible cramp that I’ve learned I only get when I have had something with gluten in it. Recently I’ve eaten a nature valley whole grain granola bar, I wasn’t sure when I began eating them if they were gluten free, but for quite a few weeks they haven’t affected me. Now I realize this may be what is giving me the pain. Is there any advice or comments on why it has only recently started affecting me?
Thanks! I would appreciate any advice.
