According to the Flour Advisory Bureau, wheat intolerance is like a party in your stomach! http://tinyurl.com/yz3xutb

"Symptoms attributed to wheat intolerance are very similar to the symptoms for a number of other conditions such as stress, IBS - or even a good night out.

• Wheat’s ranking in the list of foods that cause adverse reactions.

It is generally accepted that wheat is not a major cause of adverse reactions to food."


Well, thank heavens they cleared that up for us. </sarcasm>

Gack! :frightened
Quote:
Intolerance may be a result of a reaction to naturally occurring chemicals in a food, such as a histamine rash to strawberries.

Um, I thought a histamine reaction was an allergic reaction. :scratchy

According to an article by Peter H.R. Green, M.D., and Christophe Cellier, M.D., Ph.D. and printed in the New England Journal of Medicine October 2007:
Quote:
Celiac disease is a unique autoimmune disorder, unique because the environmental precipitant is known. The disorder was previously called celiac sprue, based on the Dutch word sprue, which was used to describe a disease similar to tropical sprue that is characterized by diarrhea, emaciation, aphthous stomatitis, and malabsorption.

Thank heavens we have "reputable organizations" like the Flour Advisory Bureau educating the public in such an accurate and helpful manner. :roll:

I suspect they have a conflict of interest in providing Celiac information. :freak

Maybe they should branch out into rice flour.

I sent the link to the Canadian Celiac Association. :verymad

I know FAB (what a name!) is from the UK but still, anything printed on the internet has far reaching influences.

Good for you!

And, yeah... you've got to wonder how long they sat around thinking about acronym ideas. :?

My doctor ran an allergy test and says I am not allergic/intolerant to wheat. But every time I eat it, I get a rash and huge sugar cravings. Sounds like an intolerance to me.

Yikes! Sounds that way to me, too!

Don't feel bad-- you're not alone. When I went to my doctor the day after going into anaphylaxis because of my undiagnosed dairy allergy, he diagnosed it as a panic attack. :x

Let's just say he didn't remain my doctor for very long after that.

The way I see it, if you stop eating a food and it makes you feel better, then it makes sense not to eat that food regardless of what the docs say.

The last thing we need is more biased opinions being posted as 'fact'. :frightened

My own experience has been doctor after doctor thought I had IBS. My last doctor thought I had IBS until he read about Celiac Disease. He now thinks I have both, as I still have some mild IBS symptoms after going GF. I have a friend who went gluten free for a week, and when she ate wheat again, she reacted. However, she can have gluten, just not wheat.
