If you are celiac, gluten sensitive, any and all amounts can begin to eliminate/flatten the villa in the lining.
Maybe watch out with ALL starches for a bit? Not sure. I would eliminate all gluten products: soups, gravies, hair products, sprays use wheat to get product to flow. Get to know all the gluten/celiac words hidden that mean WHEAT. No barley, oats, rye, either. You may have tapioca, quinoa, teff, buckwheat, amaranth! Have found pizzas, breads, etc that taste truly great.
You might want to go GMO free, as well. No soy. No canola. No corn. Try organic as much as you can afford, too,
We, here, bought shares to a cow and drank clean raw dairy for it's enzymes. The farmer checked each and every batch to be sure of its purity and would send the pdf when asked. He was adamant about
cleaning those cows bottoms with iodine mixture (*similar to what docs/surgeons use on us) before even milking. The stuff was wonderful. OMG. Real dairy - untouched by some lab allowed by the government to ruin and make virtually useless. Protect the HUGE money making dairy farms only that tie up those poor animals and keep those machines on them 24/7/365. Oops, off topic.
My gluten sensitive family member has been GF since 09. She was found to have Hashimotos first - they go hand in hand. Then PCOS, which we are dealing with now. Old mono claims a epstein barr virus to be in her blood forever and will crop up. Now? MTHFR mutant gene: a1298C that plays in to all this as well.
Eating as nutritiously and healthily as you possibly can is a LIFESTYLE change. One you cannot fudge on at all. There are things you can trade on. Ease up on the sugar! We use organic stevia leaf with organic cane sugar, mixed together. The amount of actual sugar is nil. We may mix ceylon cinnamon in there to help with blood sugar spikes. She must be watched for type 2 diabetes closely now. Xylitol made from birch trees. Raw Honey is amazing.
Best of health to you.
No one can truly digest gluten. You don't need the test to prove you have a problem with it - although it is the only way to determine if you have damage to your villa in intestine.
Grain is in everything and much of the grain is in bad shape, itself. Full of molds.
