Am I that gluten sensitive?
My doctor suggested that I try an elimination diet for two months in which I eliminated dairy, sugar, gluten, corn, soy, and other foods. I had to use products that supported the detoxification because I started getting acne during the diet.
Other than no longer having diarrhea and being more regular I didn't notice the dramatic improvement that I had expected. I'm still tired all the time, don't sleep well, and my stomach takes a long time to digest. In fact I felt the same for the most part during the elimination diet. When I reintroduced gluten and other foods I didn't notice a sudden increase in my symptoms though the sporadic diarrhea did come back but I couldn't trace it to one particular food. Now I only eat gluten once a week, I'm back on the detox products and the diarrhea is gone. I have strong cravings for bread and butter. But I wonder should I still avoid gluten like it's going to kill me?
My doctor thinks I should but if I'm not seeing a dramatic improvement I just feel like I'm torturing myself.
