Gluten Intolerance Questions
I am a 66 year old female with HCV, gluten intolerance and dentures. I've been a lacto-ovo vegetarian for 40 years. Would Paleo be beneficial or even doable for me?
I think that you can be healthy on lacto-ovo. There has to be a lot of grass fed butter and pastured eggs, but very doable. The problem with vegetarians is that they end up eating a lot of grains, specifically wheat.
I went paleo- gluten free for a little over 3 weeks then decided I missed my Ezekiel bread so for the past 3 days I began eating it again. I wasn't sure if it was in my head or not but I felt a slight stomach ache I usually only have a bowel... (more)
I've been paleo/primal-ish for about two years. That said, I admit to a decent amount (5% of overall intake?) of gluten-containing "cheats" because I didn't think I reacted to it. At least I didn't notice an obvious change after total elimination... (more)
I ate pasta today after a couple months wheat free. I "cheat" on paleo alot... but I usually eat oatmeal or rice when I cheat and have zero noticeable negative effects. I try not to do this often but I probably do have some gluten free grains... (more)
Sounds similar to what I experience with gluten intolerance. Gluten is one of those things you should never cheat on. Either eat it or don't, occasional indulgences are, unfortunately, much more harmful than just eating it all the time.
I have seen a GP who pretty much said gluten sensitivity and intolerance is made up and it must be IBS. Also heard it's quite hard to pin down sensitivity when they are slight and some of the test are only available in US. What kind of test would... (more)
I've been completely primal for about a month now. Over the weekend I went out on a road trip with some friends and that evening I had a huge meal of bread. The next day I woke up an extremely sore throat, stuffy nose, messed up sinus and extreme... (more)
15 years of Keratosis Pilaris on my legs and arms has led me down a path of many treatments which do not work. 1) Upping Vitamin A & Fermented Cod Liver 2) Exfoliating 3) Jojoba oil every day (noticed slight positive results) 4) Liver cleanse... (more)
In 2011, I was diagnosed with an illness and prescribed prescription medications to control it. The drugs had some terrible side effects, including rapid and ridiculous weight gain and low energy, but the worst part was what they did to my... (more)
I've been paleo for two and a half years, and "on the wagon", so to speak, for a few months now -- every so often I'll pick up a candy bar or have some soy-sauce-free sushi or something as part of my 20%, but no wheat that I'm aware of for at... (more)
I am editing this question since I cannot delete it. The reason why herbs were helping me for a while (I no longer take them) is because they offer some very important anti-oxidants and stimulants. So in a way, they work like a natural... (more)
This may be a really dumb question but a co-worker got REALLY upset with me when I told her about how I ate a little gluten last night and became incredibly ill. She told me that I had chosen to make my self gluten intolerant by choosing this life... (more)
Hi all - I've been eating strict pale for over 3 weeks now and the changes in my body and mind are already amazing. I'm not here to sing the praises of this lifestyle, however - like most others posting, I'm seeking insight! My family and I were... (more)
I would have to say the main thing that got me to try paleo was suspected celiac. (have never gone to the doctors for a legit diagnosis. The whole concept of potential permanent damage from gluten if I do have it and the testing process that... (more)
This is my second time having seaweed (laver) to wrap my fish (I am making sushi without the rice) and both times I get glutened (I am gluten intolerant). Why? On the package it says: Ingredients: seaweed. Nothing else. Please do not think it... (more)
How much time until one starts to see the effects of a gluten-free diet, assuming I'm gluten intolerant? The symptoms are chronic sinus inflammation.
Can Thrombocytopenia stem from a gluten intolerance? I am trying to find information before I get to the Dr and they try and push medication on me as a solution. I believe since adapting to Paleo in the last four months I have discovered that I... (more)
Via an elimination diet, I figured out about a year ago that I am gluten-intolerant (tested negative for celiac though). After this discovery, I started by cutting out gluten for the most part (trace amounts don't give me symptoms, but I know I... (more)
I have been pretty certain since I began keeping a cleaner diet around a year ago that I have an intolerance to gluten. I immediately dropped 5 lbs when I cut it out and I have noticed since that I have bad reactions when eat it including... (more)
I am just learning about paleo and plan to start this diet after i am tested, tomorrow, for gluten intolerance. Regardless of the test results, i will eliminate all gluten from my diet. I need to lose a LOT of weight. I am not very active at this... (more)
If you were born without a food allergy, then develop one due to a leaky gut, do those antibodies ever die down once the gut is repaired and you abstain from eating those foods long enough, or are you forever intolerant to some degree? (I can... (more)
I'm about to start my 3rd week of Paleo and I feel like crap. I'm 95% paleo, 5% little cheats like 1 small slice of garlic bread or 1 marshmallow once a week. Dairy free, gluten free, processed foods free, caffiene free. I'm allergic to gluten,... (more)
I had a heated argument with a couple of people who told me that there is no such thing as gluten cross-reactivity. Basically, I do not really care for the term, but I am sure gluten intolerant people react to other grains, even the ones that do... (more)
Clearly, the human body and gluten are not friendly. As I listen to individuals on here, it appears there are a decent number of people for whom gluten has a significant negative impact. Do you think that this proportion (bad reaction vs. mild... (more)
If you pay close attention to most of the people who "have no problems with wheat", they are tired/sick/have allergies/joint pain/stomach problems/etc, they just see it all as normal because they don't know any different.
