Fibromyalgia gluten free

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia gluten free


Avatar f tn Cadbury choc, most is gluten free, unless it has a biscuit base in it. Cheese and yoghurt, eggs, gluten free. Mcdonalds, hash browns and beef patties are gluten free. Not the bun. Look at the back of packaging, if the ingredients say Oat, Wheat, Barley or Rye its not g/f. It shoud say if its g/f or not, because gluten is an allergy, all packaging must say whether it contains gluten, by law now. You may need to shop in the health food aisle now, this adds 20% to a persons food bill each week.
Avatar f tn Has any one had success with a gluten free casine free diet? We are about to try it under the support from an integrated medical doctor and dietitian. Does any one have any good result stories or otherwise?
139792 tn?1498589250 Imagine a life in which your favorite comfort foods, such as pasta, bread, cereal and cookies, could cause you to become violently ill. This is reality for an estimated 3 million Americans who have been diagnosed with celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder that involves a severe reaction to foods containing gluten. Growing awareness of the condition, combined with consumer demand, has brought an increasing number of gluten-free products to store shelves in recent years.
Avatar f tn Have all of your symptoms resolved ? I was on a gluten free diet myself for awhile because many people with CFS cannot tolerate gluten very well.
1607251 tn?1304605741 In conjunction with the Thyroid Disorders Community, and any other interested members or Communities, let's see if going gluten-free can, in fact, help us lose weight and feel better. Some members have chosen to go Gluten & Glucose free. Others prefer just Gluten Free. This group is open to everyone - not just thyroid patients. (* Please check with your physician.
551343 tn?1506834118 Well he did lots of research and found the MS Recovery Diet and decided why not follow it, in for a penny in for a pound. Basically you go Gluten Free, and dairy free. And within a 12 months he has thrown his stick away. Well I would say that it isnt a miracle cure BUT it seems to help some people perhaps without knowing it are gluten sensitive. (Something that happens more as you get older).
4437322 tn?1354574957 Nutrition is SO important, too. Doing Gluten free... big help with digestive issues and tons of vitamins and supplements. Lots of good info out there! God Bless...
Avatar n tn fish, fruit, nuts, some meat, healthy fats/oils, lots of veggies. kefir. gluten free, usually grain free. I have good relationships, a great boyfriend, and family. though i often still become depressed now and then. i become so fatigued, and i lay in bed until the afternoon with pain, heart palpitations, a very sore throat, and very low motivation most days. I'm expected to look for work, so I do.
1943833 tn?1349280189 D to the bones, teeth and joints instead of soft tissues!) and taken 3x daily with a meal containing some fat. Have you ever have been on a gluten-free or elimination diet? Gluten just keeps coming up as an "offensive substance" in many cases, with the ability to affect any part, system or organ in the body. I hope this helps, however, please note that my comments are not intended to replace medical advice.
Avatar f tn i also read that a diet free or dairy and gluten , no processed foods, MSG etc is supposed to help calm down the pain receptors.. scroll halfway down so the above article was in 1999… how is it that not a single doctor in 3.
5586759 tn?1370438872 Artificial sugars have been a culprit to increased fibro problems. Prior I went Gluten free for 6 months, and that was not a trigger, but I keep very careful of my grains sticking to complex ingredients. (I often make my own bread, pastas, etc anymore.) I'm pretty lucky to live in an area that gives me easy access to communities of natural food items. We have a heavy Amish community here finding organic and naturally raised meats are very easy to get to.
Avatar f tn I have stopped eating bread but have not started a strict gluten free diet. Im scared to eat as I have no clue why foods make me soo nautious and uncomfortable. Have I been misdiagnosed with fibromyalgia as celiacs can cause alike symptoms (joint pain)? I think my dad may have had it celiacs but he has passed. I am waiting for an appointment for a endoscopy which im scared of I hope they put me too sleep.
209591 tn?1267418314 Also, different countries have different labelling standards and some places, even developed countries like the UK, can label certain items as gluten-free where other countries do not consider them to be gluten-free. Be aware as well that some of your medications may be gluten-contaminated. You'll either have to consult with your pharmacist or call the companies directly to be sure. If you go the diet route, you should know that most doctors don't consider this definitive of Celiac Disease.
Avatar f tn Have you tried a GFCF (gluten-free, cassein free) diet? I went on one primarily because I wanted to try it with my boys who have autism spectrum issues. I found that it helped my fibro symptoms. It can be hard and expensive to follow but may be worth it for you. I was on Lyrica for a few days and have had asthma ever since. You may want to check out or the Lyrica Survivors group on Facebook.
Avatar f tn I accidentally discovered 2 yrs ago (after going on a Daniel fast) that becoming gluten free DRASTICALLY improved my FMS. The level of pain has been reduced significantly. I was having migraines 5 out of 7 days, and now I'm having them only occasionally, maybe once in 3 months. I would recommend anyone to give this a try. I was on the Daniel fast for 21 days, but I saw the improvement within 14 days, so giving it a try for just 2 weeks would be well worth it.
Avatar m tn Hey me_just34. Have you been diagnosed with IBS? I would suggest you look into the SCD program and also into GAPS. Just do a search for these. Your symptoms are not typical of fibromyalgia, however, one condition which encompasses most of the above symptoms is low thyroid function. Low thyroid function, often, is the underlying condition, which needs to be ruled out in many unresolved cases, where a diagnosis has not been given, or when the symptoms are persistent.
280418 tn?1306329510 i remember our ped GI telling me that the gluten free diet might help me with my fibromyalgia---which i am assuming i sprobably lyme disease. however, i have never gone totally gluten free. i just thought i'd let you know that gluten free really isn't that hard to do. it can be inconvenient at times, but we have been able to reproduce almost everything we ate before diagnosis.
Avatar f tn htm My husband and boys all deal with autism spectrum disorder issues. We decided to try a gluten-free, cassein-free (GFCF) diet to see if it helped any of us. I think it helps the guys somewhat but REALLY helps my Fibromyalgia. It is a difficult diet to follow but you might be amazed at how much better you feel. I have come up with some of my own recipes so I don't have to buy the expensive GFCF foods. It is definitely worth trying for at least a few months to see if it helps you.
Avatar f tn 2.Consider going on a very low carb diet (no grains, no sugars) for 2 weeks, if better, go on a gluten free diet.for the following 2 weeks. If not better, then, discontinue as there's no benefit. If not better on the gluten free diet, then there's possibility of Candida overgrowth or other issue with general carb intake. The last step would be, to see the Rheumie for further exploration. Oh, just thought about this. Look into Hypothyroidism type 2, as many of your symptoms match.
Avatar f tn Hey, unfortunatly FMS is something that cannot be diagnosed that easily, its a process of elimination, so get them to test for EVERYTHING before they try & use FMS as a DX, it is a shame that you're having all these symptoms, just because it isn't Celiac doesn't mean that your body likes wheat, my boss has menieres & i got him to give up wheat as i'd read it on here & it has really helped!! Most supermarkets sell wheat & gluten free stuff! Its worth a go!
Avatar f tn Hi Anna,i can relate, i live in oz, i was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about 20 yrs ago but it was quiet mild then as time as gone on it has worsened, i also suffer with GORD, IBS,Osteoarthritis,Osteoporosis in my neck n left shoulder and lower back,chronic pain and chronic fatigue, i am alergic to Rye,yeast,wheat, and Codiene ,so gluten free diet too.
Avatar f tn Hi, as a fibromyalgia sufferer myself most of your symptoms do sound like fibromyalgia, however as it is part of an auto immune disease spectrum you need to eliminate MS, Lupus and Kidney problems. Vitamin D deficiency is common with fibromyalgia and kidney failure. My Vitamin D deficiency is caused by kidney failure and I take Adcal daily to replace what my body doesn't absorb. A side effect of VitD deficiency is bone pain, mild to severe.
Avatar f tn A good source of affordable and gluten free vitamins is at Swanson Vitamins. Just Google it and you'll find it. A good one to try for chronic pain is boswellia. It's one of those that either works really well for someone or it doesn't, but it won't hurt most people. You just have to make sure you tell your doctors that boswellia has blood thinning properties similar to NSAIDS, because most doctors don't have the first clue what boswellia is.
Avatar f tn net explains that gluten intolerance is the cause of multiple issues and not just Celiac. Fibromyalgia is one of the many things that gluten intolerance causes. I strongly suggest going to the site. Or, as an alternative, go to YouTube and use their search engine to look up "". There, you will find several videos posted. Look for the one that in the preview shows a chart.
1852058 tn?1320162300 Amatriptyline 10mg, also my fatigue levels do you suffer similar problems please feel free to tell me about them. I live in worcestershire area do you have a group you attend.
Avatar f tn I have recently been diagnosed with an allergy to wheat and gluten and came across research stating that a Gluten-free diet may slow down the progression of ALS. I don't have the energy to get into specifics right now - but thought I'd share this information. It is fairly new info. and a lot of physicians probably don't know much about it.
Avatar f tn This explains why it is critical to eliminate gluten completely from your diet if you have AITD. There’s no “80/20″ rule when it comes to gluten. Being “mostly” gluten-free isn’t going to cut it. If you’re gluten intolerant, you have to be 100% gluten-free to prevent immune destruction of your thyroid.
1550026 tn?1299339682 In fact it was a year after stopping gluten that I really started to question, was it something else and not just gluten intolerance. Gluten free will not stop/cure/help the Hashimoto's. Hashimoto anti-bodies attack thyroid tissue and that is all. Gluten antibodies attack the intestine and that is all.
Avatar f tn I'm a 29yo female. I want to find out if i have fibromyalgia and would like to hear someone describe the feeling of the pain that comes with it? I am nervous about asking my doctor that he will think i'm a hypochondriac or brush me off. I have had chronic, heavy fatigue for the past 8 years or so. Headaches all the time, brain fog and memory problems. I have kind of just assumed that this was just me but it is extremely frustrating. I've never had a diagnosis.
