The longer you stay on your wheatfree diet the more it will bother you to eat it. My Dr explained it by telling me that before my intestines healed they were kind of like calloused hands-when you rub sandpaper on them it really doesn't bother you much. But once you heal and the callouses are replaced by soft skin, sandpaper would be much more painful. Here's to your health continually improving! You can do it!
I'm new also!! I was diagnosed with Lactose Intolerance and IBS by symptoms and now have Fibromyalgia. I just recently heard that wheat can be a trigger food for IBS-C and am eliminating wheat. It's so hard as I have a house full of people without wheat sensitivity and they pretty much think this is a phase. All I know is I can finally "go" and my stomach is less bloated after meals!! Any tips are welcome!!
I am new here, and I am super glad to have found this team! I am gluten sensitive, but not celiac that I know of. I've been tested, but only with blood tests, I can't eat wheat, eggs & dairy.I've just put myself onto a wheat free diet. For years I've put up with my IBS and bloated, swollen stomach... Hungry all the time. I am new to the gluten free lifestyle. I need lots of help from you all.
