I'm not coeliac, according to my tests, but definitely gluten and grain sensitive. I am also hypothyroid and have high cortisol, but not high enough to warrant a Cushing's diagnosis.

I saw DPP IV mentioned on a facebook group and wondered if anyone has first hand experience? I was thinking it might be handy for travelling and eating out when you don't trust the chef/waiter.

Hi ruthi

Sorry I dont know what ddp is or have any experience.

Have you thought about the autoimmune protocol?

Hi Kiki, it's an enzyme that helps the body to break down gluten and casein, I also believe used by some people who have diabetes as their bodies do not produce enough of this enzyme.

Here's what say about it:

I'm sure that this has come up before on here but under another branded name as I've looked through the archives. And if I remember correctly it was suggested it would help after ingesting a small amount of gluten but none of us seemed keen to test this out, for some reason LOL.


There's one called GlutenEase, if that's the same thing. I think I bought some once early on after identifying that I had some sort of problem with gluten – or maybe just intended to – but I can't remember much more than that. I might seek out some more as an extra defence against cross-contamination in restaurants, but in that circumstance I can't really see how you could tell whether it had worked or not. As Jerry said, I'm not keen to try out a controlled experiment!
