I started a gluten-free diet in January (at the same time as going low carb for disordered blood sugars) and have seen a wonder decrease in GI issues and the severe whole body and eye itching that has plagued me for as long as I can remember.
I have previously tested negative for coeliac disease, so don't know whether I have it or not. However, my question is this: can going gluten free cause gluten sensitivity to the point of symptoms in people who weren't previously sensitive? I'm pretty certain that going gluten free doesn't cause CD I'm a little worried that when I try a gluten challenge and if I have symptoms that people will say I did it to myself. Yeah, I know it's not exactly rational.
Interestingly enough I am itching like a bugger today and I wonder whether it's because I was preparing food at the same time as my husband was baking with my five year old; they were adding the flour for cookies to a bowl at the same time as having an electric whisk on and I'm pretty sure the flour would have gone everywhere. I would have been about two metres away from them, if that. A shared kitchen is hard.
