We went gluten free last Sept. I have figured out that avoiding wheat and corn of any kind especially corn syrup has really changed our lives. I had breathing problems for several years and when I went wheat free I realized after 2 weeks that my breathing problems were all gone!
But a couple of days ago I must have eaten something that had a trace of wheat or was contaminated because yesterday I could not breathe! I suffered through taking my 2 grandsons shopping with my mom and then today I still suffered about half of what I did yesterday. the effects of hte wheat are receding slowly thanks goodness.
I also discovered for both me nad my dh if we avoid all corn /corn syrup/ high fructose corn syrup etc we dont' have the diarhea any more.
We took my grands to McD yesterday and even tho I ordered my hamburger with nothing on it but tomato onion and pickle it came with ketchup. I knew better but didn't want to get up again so I ate it. today I have really paid for it!!
I bought a high fructose corn syrup FREE ketchup that I use but I quite often forget to take it with me when we eat out.
I'd be interested in hearing if anyone else is doing the gluten free.
