confused  I don't get this - my digestion felt more settled at first, but now I'm having a heck of a time!  Yesterday my constipation was so bad I felt like I was in labor!  I've been careful to do all the right stuff as far as fiber, water, etc. so am really confused.  Any ideas?

You may have unmasked a food allergy now that the gluten is out of the picture. Have you been tested for delayed hypersensitivity to foods?

No, I haven't heard of that. Can you tell me more?
I was tested today for glucose intolerance and that came back negative. (Thought I might have that because of the weak, shaky feeling I get a lot.)
Thanks.

Weak & shakey feelings can be from low blood sugar...

Delayed food allergies are usually diagnosed via a combination of symptoms and a blood test that looks for IgG (and sometimes IgA) antibodies to foods. Sometimes you can figure out what your delayed allergies are by keeping a food/symptom journal, but not always...it can be very difficult to figure out patterns when the symptoms come on so long after exposure to the triggering food. That's why the blood test can be more helpful. Most Allergists don't believe in delayed food allergies, so you may need to find a Naturopathic or Integrative physician to order these tests for you.

I just had some tests done through Alletess, which looks for IgG, IgA and IgM food antibodies. I was not surprised by the results - I thought it was pretty accurate.

I hope this helps - take care,

This is so interesting, and very helpful. Thank you, Razzle. I will look for somebody to give me these tests.
