Hi Friends-I’m curious if anyone has a gluten sensitivity or gluten intolerance? Several people who I met and have MS, had either one before they were Diagnosed with MS.
I remember when I was a 16 year old teenager having problems eating any type of bread and it always made me feel bloated, and gassy. Milk was the worst at this age onward. I wasn’t aware at this age of any connection to these foods causing the problems. In my early 40’s, I was tested for gluten intolerance/sensitivity when I went through a battery of tests before being lDx with MS: Gluten results were negative. I never understood this, and thought maybe it’s a gluten allergy causing these intestinal symptoms, hence an inflammatory response in my body.
Now I abstain from glutinous products and eat GF bread, or I bake my own bread, brown rice, GF noodles, etc. and feel much better-No digestive problems. It’s a mystery to me and would love to hear if anyone has had similar digestive issues in their life?
And I’m not saying a gluten allergy is the cause to my MS, but I know it surely doesn’t help me.
