Yummy! Some of my favorite foods have gluten in them and I've had to give them up...until now. You may be wondering why I would go back to eating gluten after I realized that it was making me sick. Well, I found out a very interesting fact the other day.
When I was tested for gluten intolerance, the results turned up negative even though I knew gluten and me were not getting along. Do you want to know why it came out negative? It's because I had started eating gluten free two months prior to testing. That is a big NO-NO! You have to have some type of gluten in your system for the antibody the doctor is looking for to pop up.
So, temporarily, I'm back to eating gluten until next Monday to try to build back up in my system a good reading for my blood panels. I'm introducing it slowly into my diet, but I can already feel the effects:
- abdominal cramping
- difficult bowels (if any)
-painful muscles and joints
Once I get my blood panels taken, I'm going right back to my gluten free diet. I will keep you guys informed when I found out the results.
