    Interesting article! I am about to start my gluten-free diet and hope it helps with my weight gain, inflammation and blood sugar problems. Thanks for posting.
    Kind regards,
    Lisa

    A gluten and casein free diet has been the best thing I ever did for my gut.

    I was told by my G.P. that there was no blood test for coeliac disease. I believe thus is one of the things that showed be ruled out before an M.E. diagnoses is given.

    I tried 2-3 months free from wheat and felt a bit better but not much. I also was told by a pharmacist that there was a blood test and so I bought it and did it at home. It was negative. Later I discovered you should be eating wheat when taking this test!!

    I started wheat again just because its convenient.

    I have now not eaten wheat or gluten for many months and I agree with Adreno, in that I believe it to be one of the best things I hAve done.

    I think I never gave it a long enough trial in the past and now I am thinking one year or even two years would be a reasonable length if time to see results.

    I went gluten-free a few weeks ago. It reduced my years-long, chronic sinusitis within a day sufficiently that I can now breathe lying on my side at night - previously I couldn't because my nose would get too stuffed up.

    However, I've put on weight! I increased my intake of nuts and cheese and 90% Lindt chocolate (oops) and I think that's what did it. I was over-optimistic about the weight-loss claims. Just watch your overall calorie intake! :)

    Been gluten/casein/egg/sugar free for a few years now, I'm not slim by any means as I need carbs,eat a lot of potatoes and gluten free bread, brown rice etc.
    Always worth a try to try to resolve some symptoms.

    Adreno where do you get your calcium from in your diet? I have a problem due to a casein free diet, have tried goat's milk which is lower I think but don't tolerate it much better. Is sheep's milk any lower?

    I went on a gluten free diet for one year a few years ago. My stomach went flat with no bloating. My digestion was much improved but overall I can't say I felt any better.

    The diet was much easier than I expected with all the brown rice noodles and gluten free substitutes available these days.

    It seems to me that most if not all people feel better on a gluten free diet. Is there any downside to adhering it?

    Biscuits, cake, muffins, cupcakes, cookies, pies, waffles, pancakes, many sauces, some processed meats, fast food, etc ... things that can be a lot harder to find or make without gluten :p

    But if you can handle the deprivation and cravings, you'll probably live longer :thumbsup:
