    Apologies if this has already been posted, and I hope it's in the right forum, but I note some other threads in this forum that refer to FODMAPS.

    Interesting stuff ... one thing I found recently when looking at my rare 23andMe data is that I am homozygous for a very rare genotype on the MGAM gene, which involves the breakdown of oligosaccharides. I wonder if that might be responsible for my "gluten" and other intolerances. It's at rs12703419 with CC as the very rare version, though CT is pretty rare as well.

    I certainly think it likely that many of us have an abnormality of carb metabolism, hence our improvement on a low-carb diet.

    I'm slightly dismayed at the possibility that my low-GI sweetener xylitol may be problematic, being a polyol, but I don't like unsweetened hot drinks and don't know of any other suitable sweetener. Maybe the small amount I have isn't a problem (I hope!).

    Certainly the author of this paper knows that even some celiacs can eat gluten without feeling anything.

    Looking at antibodies or villi would've been more scientific.

    My problem with carbs appears to be from hyperinsulinemia. I felt horrible, sweats, sleepy, nauseas, during the gtt plus insulin and recognize
    this if I've had too many carbs.

    The paper is about people without celiac disease.

    Yes I know. But if some celiacs can eat gluten without feeling it then why assume others will feel anything.

    Tests to confirm reactions woulda been helpful.

    Oh, OK. I didn't realise some celiacs could eat gluten without getting reactions.

    Forgot to say that based on the info I've seen in the gf world in the last 8 years, the medical professionals involved in the upcoming gluten summit are the experts in this arena. : ) tc ... x
