I have been extremely curious about
this, so thank you for bringing it up. I have been cutting dairy / casein out of my diet (for non-fibro reasons...), but wondered if it would help to try cutting out gluten as well. I figured it couldn't hurt.
Dagger, that is very interesting and helpful information. The fact that you have less pain, fatigue, and experience positive weight loss is impressive. I can certainly understand having difficulty giving up wheat!
I have read that, for whatever reason one may be trying a gf or cf diet, it can take 6 months or so to determine if it is or is not helping. Dagger, how long does it generally take for you to notice any affect?
Drowsy, how about
your friend? How long did it take him / her to notice a difference.
I do think it's important to keep in mind that, with any treatment, it will not work for everyone. Sometimes the only way to know is to give it a shot, taking extra care to ensure proper nutrition.
