Artificial Sweetener Intolerance And Celiac?

6 posts in this topic

As long as I can remember I had a bad reaction to artificial sweeteners. When Splenda came out (Sucralose) they advertised it to be just like sugar - just without the calories. Well I went and gave it a try and ended up in the hospital with SEVERE vomitting etc. If it wasn't coming out one end - it was coming out the other! lol TMI, sorry <_< I dont think I've ever been that sick after eating something in my life! Now whenever I have anything with a tiny bit in it I am instantly sick.

Is there a link between artificial sweetener intolerance and Celiac?

I don't think so, but anything is possible, I guess.

I read that Splenda may have a natural laxative effect.

Why not use sugar, maple syrup, stevia--all natural foods?

"The list of reported side effects from Splenda is long and varied, according to an article by Dr. Betty Martini on Rense.com. Side effects include skin irritation, itching and swelling, bloating, diarrhea, headache, tremors, nausea, abdominal pain, depression, forgetfulness, mood swings and severe anxiety. Writing on the Women to Women website, OB/GYN Marcelle Pick cites an article from the 1991 issue of "New Scientist," which reported on a short-term study by the manufacturer about rats that consumed large amounts of sucralose. The study by toxicologist Judith Bellin found that the sugar substitute caused shrunken thymus glands, enlarged livers and kidney disorders in rodents.

Oh, I do now. That hospital thing was about 8-10 years ago. Stevia, honey, Agave & sucanat are my staples if I ever need anything sweet.

Not that I've ever heard of. Sounds like an awful reaction though. At least Splenda is easier to avoid than gluten!
