  1. Thank you for the insight. I guess if we were to debate it I would lean the other way and think that Celiac is rare and that everything else is an intolerance or allergies. I guess it seems weird to me that there is a whole autoimmune disease that functions on the idea that your body can't tolerate a specific substance. From what I know, this is the only autoimmune disease with this criteria, no? But, I'm a newbie with lots of theories and no facts. I am just trying to take it one day at a time. When I first started I didn't notice a difference at all. My doctor told me that I probably didn't have celiac/intolerance. She said if I did, I would get really sick anytime I ate gluten. Well, then I talked to a friend and she said that I wasn't being strict enough with my diet. So then I really started to watch what I ate and low and behold, I'm feeling better...And now apparently, gluten makes me sick if I cheat and eat it! Oh there's some emerging research about people who have gluten intolerances without being celiac: http://www.canibaisereis.com/download/gluten-gastrointestinal-symptoms-without-celiac.pdf http://www.thelancet.com/journals/laneur/article/PIIS147444220970290X/abstract?rss=yes# http://www.nature.com/ajg/journal/v106/n3/full/ajg2010487a.html
  2. Hello All! I am new here, but not a stranger to message boards. So my hollistic doctor diagnosed me with a gluten sensitivity/intolerance using Applied Kinesiology. I now believe this to be a bunk way of testing, but because my health is so poor (and I'm only 29), I decided to try living gluten free. I've had my ups and downs for several weeks, but I do feel better when I am off gluten. Over the weekend I decided to try my luck and I ate several items with gluten and didn't watch my diet as carefully because I was on vacation. Anyway, I suffered from what I think is glutenation. I felt like I had a pound of bricks in my stomach and I had BM issues. I also had serious burping and bloating. Now, I have several questions: 1) Do these symptoms happen to all people who abstain from gluten and then add it back to their diet? 2) Should I get tested for Celiac? I need to make an appointment with my allergist soon anyway. But won't my results be bad if I am already abstaining from gluten? 3) What other reasons could there be for my bad reaction? Maybe it wasn't the gluten but something bad I had eaten? Any help would be appreciated. Please let me know if you need more info! THANKS!
