I am sure the regular users must get a bit tired of this, but I am still coming around to the fact I probably have non celiac gluten sensitivity.

Here is some background:

I was always a chubby kid, but home made bread and sandwhices were staples at my house. Even as an adult I had to have toast at least once a day, slathered in butter.

In the past few months I have begun slowly losing a little weight and my digestion issues improved as I switched to a low fat diet. I had tried low carb diets in the past which worked to a degree, but that entailed eating lots of meat/fat.

In the last two weeks I have been low glycemic in addition to the low fat-its pretty hard to do both!

My other health issues, other than digestion, have not improved. That would be tiredness, slow wound healing, and sore joints.

I did try the gluten free thing on and off in the past with some success. I had more energy, my bloated belly shrank, and felt all around better, but friends talked me out of it since I didnt have diareea and the other main celiac symptoms.

The idea of being non celiac gluten sensitive though is starting to make sense.

My next idea is to continue low fat-I think I am pretty sensitive to weight gain and digestion issues from any kind of fat, and I am now going no gluten instead of low glycemic. At least I can have rice, potatoes, and gluten free stuff of which lots is out there now.

Thanks one and all for your thoughts, and good luck in the new year.

What do you mean by "on and off"? If you have not tried it at least 3-6 months, it doesn't count. Most overweight gluten intolerants find that they lose some weight when they go on the gluten-free diet. (As most skinnies find they gain.) It is just a different bodily mechanism.

It is never good to eat a bunch of high glycemic foods in general. If you are eating potato, better to eat a baked potato than a thoroughly mashed one which goes straight to the blood stream as sugar. And cutting down on sugars is good for all of us. The fewer empty calories we have the more good nutrition we can cram in. Proper amounts of good quality fats are essential to good nutrition. Think olive oil, avocados, sardines, salmon, butter, coconut milk and oil. The old saw "everything in moderation" is still a good one. :) (and that goes for everything except the processed junk food and sodas, which are best strictly limited, and of course gluten for the gluten-intolerant, where even a crumb is verboten.)

    • I don't know who is claiming lots of uk gluten-free breads are contaminated? It's certainly news to me! I think it is possible to get a slight reaction to gluten-free breads and pastas, especially if you eat a lot. as I understand it they can contain a very small amount of gluten which can add up to more than the acceptable daily amount for a celiac.  There is a cumulative effect in other words. I try to eat them more as an occasional treat rather than as a daily staple.  I also find some agree with me more than otherss, but there could be other factors at play than gluten content there. For example the other additives, xantham gum content etc. I typically mix and match but regularly have genius, asda own brand, Udis buns, m and s, Newgate sourdough, those wraps which I forget the brand but are at most supermarkets., without major issues.  Hope this of help, I will look next time I'm shopping for more brand names I've eaten            
    • Hey everyone, I need some advice. After being diagnosed with celiac disease, I have been eating just rice and potatoes for carbs and its really hard to make up the calories and I am losing weight fast. I know my local supermarkets (Tesco, Sainsburys, Asda) have many gluten free breads and pastas, but I read from this forum that even though they say gluten-free they might be cross contaminated. So I really need some advice on the actual products that are 100% gluten-free that you guys use that I can get in the United Kingdom. I am really desparate here and really need some recommendations that you guys know 100% are gluten-free and/or use yourself. Thanks alot )
    • I agree with the others that this looks like a positive celiac disease diagnosis (and I didn't really see anything that indicates a weak positive). What I have never seen before is the "celiac cascade." After thinking on what that is for several minutes, I concluded it is an indication of positivity based on the tests. Is that right? I have no idea, can someone explain in clear English or point to a clear web site? Thanks! Plumbago
    • hey i've been vegetarian for 8 years and gluten free for almost a year. its difficult since they are kind of opposites. i actually just noticed the advertisemnts from the cancer counil here is australia now has meat listed next to alchol, cigarettes and the sun. a few years ago when i read about it, it seemed hot dogs and super processed meats like salami were the only issue. which i only remember when i see a sausage sizzle to raise money for cancer lol  but it surprised me that now the guidelines are including red meat as well and smaller amounts. https://www.cancercouncil.com.au/1752/cancer-prevention/diet-exercise/nutrition-diet/other-foods-nutrients/meat-and-cancer-3/ so i would reccomend easing into it and slowly replace meat with alternatives to make sure you are getting enough protein etc get your iron and b12 levels checked every now and then. buffalo cauliflower and eggplant schnitzels are two of my favorites. you can also make alot of cheeses and sauces out of nuts and tofu. i also eat alot of falafel, hommus and tahini. i can send you some links to recipes if you like
    • I'm going to guess the additive effect of a few months of mystery CC glutenings (since resolved), plus heavy training load. The last time I had my antibodies/iron checked in Feb 2016, both were good. Since diagnosis to that point, I'd been taking iron supplements only sporadically, but stopped altogether at that point as my ferritin was quite high (hemochromatosis runs in my family, so some concern about taking too much iron). Unfortunately, my DH is only speculative - I've seen a dermatologist in an attempt to get it biopsied/prescribed Dapsone, but she was convinced it had to be acne as it "did not look exactly like in her textbook." My protestations that this was because it she was looking at the remains of a rash that I'd picked the heck out of were sadly ignored. I do have a GI appointment coming up in a few weeks though.
