Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?

Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch  and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?

Does not matter: Since 90% of the cholesterol is produced by the body regardless of your diet, the above would not noticeably affect your cholesterol level. Do note that too much carb may not be good for your health. I don't believe extreme diet does anyone any good. Just eat anything in moderation and exercise at least 3 hrs a week will likely keep you in better shape. ...Read more

My friend had high fat low carb diet and omit wheat, rice, sugar oat and all other cereals from food list. Is it safe? M indian n can"t forego wheat.

Fad diet: This "pop" diet -- despite the elaborate "scientific theory" presented by its proponents -- probably works like most of the other diet fads by limiting food choices. It's your friend's business; i trust this person will use appropriate, cost-effective supplements as needed if it's too restrictive. ...Read more

Can you all of a sudden be allergic to gluten. I'm 29 yrs old and all of a sudden im breaking out after i eat bread, flour, cakes. First time!?

Wheat allergy?: Gluten sensitivity typically presents with gastrointestinal symptoms. Gluten is found in many grains. However, "breaking out" suggests a rash and that may be an allergic reaction to wheat. There are reliable tests to discriminate between true wheat allergy and gluten sensitive enteropathy (celiac disease). An allergist can assist you in finding the trigger. ...Read more

Can eating wheat or glutin cause an itchy reaction? I have an chronic ear itch that seems to go away when i cut out flour from my diet. Coincidence?

Wheat can cause itch: Gluten is a molecule found in wheat, barley, and rye. It is what gives bread it's chewy texture. Patients with celiac disease have immune reactions to gluten. Itchiness could be one symptom but not very common. Your pcp can draw a blood test to screen for celiac disease. A true wheat allergy, on the other hand can cause itchiness. This is best diagnosed by an allergist with skin testing. ...Read more

Why does the media say eating "gluten free" can reduce glycemic spikes as gf still allows rice and buckwheat which is high carb?

Why does the media say eating "gluten free" can reduce glycemic spikes as gf still allows rice and buckwheat which is high carb?

The Media is Wrong: Good observation. "glycemic spikes" are due to carbohydrates not gluten. Gluten is found in wheat and many people who go "gluten-free" subsequently reduce their carb intake. Changes in glucose control attributed to lack of gluten are actually due to carb reduction. For people who have celiac disease, going gluten free is important. There is little evidence that it helps others. ...Read more

Just recently did bloodwork test for gliadin Ab, sIgA it it came in high at 56.  I have been gluten free for 4 years.  What else would cause that?

Nothing. It stays +: You did not mention if you are having any symptoms or what was the reason for doing the blood test. Your immune antibodies against the components of gluten will stay positive if your immune system considers it relevant. Just continue to strictly avoid eating anything with gluten. Keep in mind that even some medications contain gluten. No need to keep testing if the diagnosis is made. ...Read more

If you have a glutamate metabolism disorder...& then you eat a food high in glutamic acid (meat, gluten, casein..Etc), what happens to you? Symptoms?

If diangosis w/ reactive hypoglycemia, what is the best PREworkout meal (soy/dairy/gluten-free) for SHORT (25min) high intensity interval trng sessions?

Your sugar is normal: In my 35 years of practice, I have never seen a case of reactive hypoglycemia. The disorder doesn't exist, if you're overweight the symptoms are a natural response to your glucose level returning to normal. Don't waste your money o GTT or any fad diets of treatments. Lose wt if heavy. Meter will always read lower than real sugar and it's still totally normal. Stop obsessing! ...Read more
