Hi everyone, Im new to this whole gluten sensitivity i have basically been living with brain fog, anxiety, and numbness on and off for 18mos. I changed docs bc she was giving up on finding the cause i recently got tested for gluten and my doc said is had a slight positive reaction. So i decided to be on a gluten free diet, however i have a family and its quite expensive to buy all of us gluten free. Is this sensitivity like peanuts i cant handle food with gluten, or is it basically i cannot ingest it? Any info will help thanks

Hey, cms22. Welcome to the forum.

If you are intolerant of gluten, you really shouldn't eat it at all. Not at all. But there's no reason that your family has to avoid gluten. Just you.

I cook for my family and while it does take a bit more effort to get us all fed, it's not a big deal. When we have pasta for dinner, I use regular pasta for them and make a small bowl of GF pasta for me. When we have sandwiches, they have regular bread and I have GF bread. When I make pizza, I have a GF pizza in the freezer and I make them regular pizza.

The hardest part about adopting a GF diet is that you really have to be careful about processed food. It's healthier for you and for your family to avoid processed foods as much as possible and to prepare your own food from high quality ingredients.

It's really not a big deal. I hope this is helpful.

I do the same thing. I cook for me GF. I cook full gluten stuff for hubbs. It is just us two. Sometimes he doesn't mind eating GF I say ok just makes it easier on me. I am very careful not to cross contaminate the spoons , spatulas and such ... And make sure no tasting his noodles! LOL sometimes it's hard to remember! Getting easier as time goes by.
