Hey everyone. Has anyone else discovered since having digestive and acid problems whether or not they have a food intolerance?
I've had stomach issues for the past 18 months, and if I'm honest it's taken a long time to pinpoint the causes/problems, but with me, I've found that I have sensitive reactions to wheat (and may be gluten as well but not certain). Bread, biscuits, cakes, pasta all the main wheat based food particularly make me ill. After experimenting by giving it up for a while, and then reintroducing it back into my diet to see how I coped, I've found that wheat makes me really ill. Horrible digestive problems and reflux since introducing it again.
I had a blood test for celiac done during the early part of this year, which was negative, but don't know if it could have been a false negative. I haven't had a biopsy for celiac which is pretty stupid considering I've had 2 endoscopies done, but the initial gastroenterologist I saw didn't seem very good either. Just very dismissive, saying it would just be IBS, and he didn't seem to want to do much in the way of tests!
Just wondering if anyone else has found a correlation between this and food allergies? While my stomach is recovering I am limiting acidic foods, fatty foods, and stuff like small dried food as well which are hard for me to digest as eliminating wheat and gluten but just wondering if anyone else found this??
