gluten allergy

Hi there! First off, thank you so much for your wonderful website. I appreciate the time and details you provided. I had never heard of CD until recently, and i am 31 years old! But, I've always seemed to have digestive problems. I've been eating Tums like candy which I'm sure is not great. Then I started taking probiotics because I thought that would help my "belly problems". It wasn't until my sister sent me an article about glucose allergies that I wondered if I might have an allergy? What are my next steps? Today is my first day glucose-free and I haven't had any stomach pains yet! I don't feel as lethargic as usual too. What are your thoughts? Thank you in advance!

Website owner response: Hello and thanks for visiting my website. I think you are referring to gluten-free vs glucose free? You need to go to your doctor and ask to be tested for celiac disease. If you test positive with CD you need to be on a 100% gluten free diet with not even the smallest amount of gluten. My website explains all this. You may not have CD but you could be gluten intolerant. If you adopt a gluten free diet, be careful with hidden gluten found in sauces, condiments and flavorings. Also make sure you make your kitchen gluten friendly and avoid cross contamination of foods that contain gluten. Finally ask for a gluten free menu at restaurants. Hope this helps. First step is to ask your doctor to be tested for CD. Good luck.
