Gluten intolerance


I have wheat intolerance which was diagnosed with an elimination diet through the Royal Prince Alfred Allergy Clinic in Sydney, Australia. I often wonder if this means I should avoid all gluten as oats upsets me too. Gluten is found in wheat, barley, rye, and oats.
On Daily Strength forums I read of a lady with an autoimmune condition that is in remission - she believes this is due to avoidance of all gluten. She follows a diet designed for celiacs. She also avoids all dairy. This may be difficult but is worth a try if it can improve symptoms. Take the Gluten-Free Challenge which will help you with recipes.
Associated Conditions to Celiac Disease CD
"For the patient who may have had active, untreated celiac disease for a number of months or even years, there may be associated immune-related conditions. There is an established association between CD and insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus and with thyroid disease." Celiac Sprue Association/United States of America, Inc. (CSA)
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder.
