Gluten Limited not Gluten Free

Iíve tried following a Gluten Free lifestyle and the results are positive. I donít know if I have celiac disease but I do have inflammation when I eat to much Gluten ( wheat, processed foods), but the pressure of leading a Gluten Free lifestyle can get overwhelming , to lighten the pressure , ďIím Gluten LimitedĒ.

Re: Gluten Limited not Gluten Free

I'm celiac. I would highly recommend getting tested for celiac BEFORE you go gluten free. If you are celiac, and you don't follow a strict diet, it will cause many problems for you and could end your life sooner than you would like. If you are only gluten intolerant, there is more wiggle room, but it is very important to find out which one you are.


How long have you been gluten free for? The first 2 years were rough for me, but now I don't even really think about it too much.

Re: Gluten Limited not Gluten Free

Pasta and Bread is a Italian staple, Rice pasta in bags is my pasta change and corn tortillas are my bread change. I'm not free of Gluten but I cut it down a lot.

I have also experienced benefits from limiting gluten intake, including less IBS symptoms. I do not have the genetic markers for celiac or Crohn's, but I feel way better when I limit the gluten. Altough in my case, it may be the limiting of wheat as opposed to gluten that is causing the benefit.

In addition, after mostly eliminating wheat from my diet, and in general eating less carbohydrate from grain sources I have dropped about 15 lbs...

Re: Gluten Limited not Gluten Free

I was gluten free for a year with no notable improvement. I'm going to try again though, since my serotonin-deficiency induced IBS may have been masking any improvement. I was also dairy free for over a year with no improvement, yet, now I can tell you if there was dairy or egg in anything I eat b/c I'll be running for the bathroom without a doubt.

Re: Gluten Limited not Gluten Free

If you still aren't feeling 100% you might think about taking digestive enzymes when you eat. That really helped me feel better. My doctor explained it that when you've been sick for so long, your intestines and such need to heal and are not working 100%. Digestive enzymes make their job easier and you feel less sick.

I also take probiotics and l-glutamine to promote healing.

Spelt is questionable, depending on the allergy/intolerance issue.
