Gluten Intolerance Symptoms
I went to make breakfast today, and couldn’t figure out why I was getting gluten intolerance symptoms again. Symptoms of getting into gluten like gas, bloating, the blues, rashes, numbness and tingling in my hands, pain and swelling in the joints, brain fog, and more. Oh brother, there’s quite a list. I have heard that when you’re getting into gluten as a celiac you can get up to 300 symptoms. And it sure feels that way. It’s enough of an incentive to avoid it , isn’t it? It is for me! I have said to myself, over and over again, since I was diagnosed over 20 years ago. “It can’t be that bad”. But crap, it is! Every time I tried to get checked for some other cause, it always came back to this. This is so hard, to watch everything that goes into my mouth. No wonder so many people are so sick with the Celiac disease, and feel they can’t rise above it. It’s the craziest thing when you have gluten intolerance symptoms. But also so dangerous, as it does permanent damage to you r body and your immune system, your vitamin levels, etc. As I have said before, I ended up with three other autoimmune diseases due to all this autoimmune mess. And once they are there, there is no cure! Only treatments! Mainly because it went undiagnosed so long. The hard thing is the Thyroid disease I developed (Hashimoto’s disease), can also effect your digestion, as it effects everything. So it can be quite confusing and hard to balance.
So, as I was saying. Recently, I couldn’t figure out where in the world I was getting into gluten that was making me so sick at Breakfast time. Well, I found the culprit. I assumed that the cooking spray I was using was gluten free. It used to be, but I have to remember to always re-check labels and not assume. Know this, lots of times over a period of time, these companies can change the formulas they use in the food. What was once Gluten free, may not be now and might be causing gluten intolerance symptoms. If we don’t stay on top of it, we get sick. And very sick! So, I will no longer be using Smart balance cooking spray! I’m pretty sure Pam original is Gluten free! According to the ingredients it is. Stay tuned! And thanks for stopping by celiacdisease.tips. Best wishes for greater health. Stay focused and be encouraged. There is a better way to feel your best. Iris
