OMG - I have been remiss. I have not written about the FODMAP diet extensively. Today, I will rectify that misake. I will talk about what the diet is, why it is good, and how could it help with elusive glutening-like symptoms but you know you didn't eat gluten.
here are a variety of clinical trials out there for those with celiac disease. Some are observational - where you just report to the researchers what you ate or how you felt. Some are investigational - where they are testing a new drug or treatment for celiac disease. Some require gluten ingestion, some don’t.
The confusion surrounding gluten free alcoholic beverages is about to get much more complicated. It started with Corona Beer saying their beer was less than 20ppm of gluten.

The FDA says all unflavored distilled beverages are 100% gluten free but what does that mean? Let's try to sort this out....

I still have gastrointestinal issues and rarely do I believe it was due to gluten. I ran into a brick wall with doctors saying I was healthy but I still felt awful more days than I should have.
