  1. Apologies for my over-reaction. As the shampoo exposure was only for a couple week or so, I doubt any lab tests would have indicated exposure. Unfortunately, since I didn't have the antibodies, I can only rely on my symptoms to tell me if I've been exposed. I'm fortunate enough that eliminating...
  2. The reason I think it was the shampoo? Process of elimination. Our house is almost entirely gluten free (except for this shampoo which slipped through the cracks until I read the ingredient label). My husband has bread that he eats at lunch, but he practices something that resembles aseptic...
  3. I also can't have dairy but through a series of experiments and a lot of research I think I've pinpointed my problem. It may or may not be the same for you, but I thought I'd share. There are two kinds of beta-casein protein A1 and A2. We'll call A1 "bad casein" and A2 "good casein". The two...
  4. I'm a scientist, and I did a little research into the study. Looks valid and it was published in a respected journal. http://www.gastrojournal.org/article/S0016-5085(17)36352-7/pdf The science looks solid. As someone who didn't have a super clean cut diagnosis before going gluten free...
  5. I've actually been glutened by shampoo with hydrolyzed wheat protein, and I wasn't even the one using it. It was my husbands! I swear I don't go around eating my husbands hair. I am pretty sensitive though, so it's entirely believable that the trace amounts in his hair were getting onto...
  6. I love light yoga when I'm recovering from a glutening. I understand how hard it is to get back into exercise when you're just beginning to recover. I find that yoga engages my muscles in a pleasant and non stressful way and it definitely helps with the aches I usually encounter post-glutening...
  7. Some of the artificial sweeteners used in gum are actually used as laxatives in larger doses, especially the sugar alcohols (usually ending with -ol, e.g., sorbitol, xylitol, erythritol). We also tend to have more sensitive stomachs, so it might not take much to set yours off.
  8. There is some very interesting research out there with regard to the benefit of Omega 3s for inflammation. Most of these clinical trials use doses that it would be difficult to achieve with diet alone. I personally take fish oil because generalized inflammation seems to be a big problem for...
  9. RLS is significantly more prevalent among the celiac population than the general population, so I think there's definitely a correlation. Unfortunately, it doesn't aways go away once you go gluten free. There's also a link between RLS and inflammation, and, for me at least, most of my post-glutening...
  10. Hi Dave, I'm glad your starting to feel better. My gluten challenge did a similar thing to me, and low fodmap is the only way to get relief. I did learn from past experience that eventually I'll heal enough that I can start eating normally (minus the gluten). Do onions kill you? They destroy...
