I am gluten free and have been for the last 2 years although I have never been formally diagnosed with celiac disease. My doctor and I agree that it is not necessary to get a formal diagnosis though costly and invasive testing as I feel so much better and have noticed many health improvements since I stopped eating gluten. I am also grain free 90% of the time.
* my chronic constipation (since I was a small child) is gone
* my painful, bloated, gassy stomach pains are gone
* my keratosis pilaris has improved
* my joint inflammation has improved/gone
* my mucus production ie. constant runny nose has improved
* my blood glucose numbers are consistently low
My 8 year old son has been suffering from migraine headaches for the last few years. They had started increasing in frequency and severity in the last few months. He would get a horrible headache for hours that wouldn't go away until he threw up violently, this was happening 2x a week. Three weeks ago I removed gluten from his diet and he hasn't had a headache since. Coincidence? Time will tell I guess.
