gluten-free Foods Cause Gi Issues
0

7 posts in this topic

Ok, I've been gluten-free for a couple yrs now & feel pretty confident that I'm mostly aware of hidden wheat/gluten.

I was wondering if anyone has noticed GI problems when eating "gluten-free" foods (a la Amy's brand, which uses mostly rice flour)? (pain, bloating, the infamous 'D' - up to 2 days after eating)

I've used bob's red mill flours to make biscuits, pancakes, etc. and haven't had much of an issue (unless I eat more than one or two portions in a day).

I don't use these products frequently (maybe once a month - if that!), I eat real foods otherwise (fruits, veggies, protein, fats).

Any ideas?

There are two types of gluten free foods when it comes to processed foods. First, there are foods like Amy's that are processed in a shared facility and are susceptible to CC and it is possible that the cause of your issues when consuming some products is actually gluten. Then there are others that are processed in a gluten free facitily, if these are bothering you you certainly have some type of other intolerance. If you keep a food diary that you also list symptoms in you could review and check for common ingredients. It could be an additive that bothers you. Then again it could be something as simple as rice, some people have issues with all types of things.

Or it could be gluten free oats. I was sort of heartbroken to have to give up the Bob's Red Mill Brand (they process gluten free oats in the same facility) when I finally figured out that it I react to even traces of gluten free oats, as that brand is the easiest to find around here. But it made a huge difference.

I'm wondering which type of Amy's because I think I used to see posts questioning cc in Amy's frozen foods but almost never the canned ones. There's a canned Amy's gluten-free organic southwest chili I've had plenty of times w/out a problem.

Only thing I ever get that's Amy's (frozen) is the Rice crust pizza (w/soy cheese).

I next to never eat anything soy (due to thyroid stuff)... so I didn't think of that being an issue possibly.

But even w/the Bob's Red Mill - I can eat say 2 biscuits or 2 pancakes - but more than that & I get the same reaction.

I don't eat oats (never liked 'em anyway), so if the CC is the issue, maybe that.

It's an issue enough, I simply won't be buying that pizza again. I had Glutino's pizza (w/real cheese) & it was good, but same issue and serious blood sugar reactions.

I know I can't eat any rice pasta b/c of the sugar issues I get from even half a serving (with a meat sauce, for example) even. Maybe, I need to stay away from all rice??

That means the only 'grain' I'll be eating is corn products, as others I don't like, can't eat, or don't settle well (like quinoa). :(

I would suspect that it might be the soy. I get a LOT of digestive pain from eating even the smallest amount....and lots of D.

I recently made a post about this and found some interesting info about how lenient the labelling can be re: 'gluten-free'

    • I think the gripe with this sort of article is that it's not telling the right story. When you write anything, you have a choice about whose story you tell and the consequences of it.  While such articles are factual in the sense that objectively, a GFD is worse than a similar regular one, the focus of these articles undermines the struggles of those who must be gluten-free while also not really giving any information that is likely to result in changed behaviour. All this sort of article does is justify the anti-gluten-free circlejerk. I think many of the journalists here think they're on the side of people with celiac disease because they're underlining that the fad diet is dumb/pointless/harmful/whatever. While this may be true, the message the reader remembers is this: the GFD is frivolous. It doesn't matter if there's a line in the article that says something about how the GFD is a medical necessity for those with celiac disease. People don't remember the asterisk in the article. All they remember is that the GFD is for idiots.  What would be valuable and useful is discussing celiac disease - symptoms, longterm consequences etc. and how strict those with celiac disease must be with the GFD in the context of this research. This will do a better job of convincing people that the fad diet is dumb, but do so in a responsible way that doesn't undermine the real problems faced by those with celiac disease or other medical conditions. Plus, the increased awareness might make someone realize that they should get tested.
    • I had to run go google zonulin. Never heard of that! Makes perfect sense though.. I assume every single person on earth with AI disease has leaky gut! Ya know, I drank several glasses to a bottle of merlot every night after work to "unwind" for many years before I figured out it aggravating the leaky gut! I'm SO glad I quit before it did more damage ... Seriously, metformin is awesome. I love it. Great for metabolic resistance and free at a lot of places with an RX!
    • I am on Armour too.  No metformin for me yet.  I am trying to manage on a low carb high fat diet for many reasons like having a damaged gut and being allergic to so many meds (yah know....swelling, hives, etc.).  Leaky gut.  Nope.  Better.  Zonulin seems to be increased in celiacs.  I am going to blame my gut on that!  Seriously, there seems to be a link.  
    • Dang, Ennis.  You rock!  Ironic and I must be near brain dead.  Did I mention that school is out today!!!!!!  I feel so sleep deprived!  S U M M E R! 
    • Wow you have ALOT going on! Sorry to hear about your ongoing issues. Are you super duper strict with avoiding gluten or do you think you are still getting cross contamination? I will check out that portion of the forum- THANKS a bunch for that. It is all a bit overwhelming. I saw some people post that they saw "dramatic improvement!" within 2 weeks and I'm going rreeeaaalllly? *insert sarcasm.. haha. I know I wont get that lucky. I take metformin and armour and victoza. Type 2 diabetes runs in my family too. My glucose levels were never really high and I never got the official type 2 diagnosis but ive dropped all excess weight on these meds. I hope to wean soon. Did you fix the leaky gut? That is a daunting task isn't it!
