Could I be wheat intolerance? Can eat reduced wheat rye bread but get stomach pain and gas when I eat white or whole wheat products?

Could I be wheat intolerance? Can eat reduced wheat rye bread but get stomach pain and gas when I eat white or whole wheat products?

Possibly yes.: The symptoms you describe sound like you could be sensitive to gluten, a protein that's found in wheat, rye, barley and oats. I can't explain why you can tolerate wheat rye but not white or whole wheat products. They all contain gluten. Your symptoms should be checked out by a doctor. Meanwhile eat only gluten free grains (corn and rice) and tell your doctor if that reduces your symptoms. ...Read more

Why can't my allergist figure out why I suddenly got hives (1 yr ago now). I think its something in bread but he says no. He tested barley/wheat/rye.

Idiopathic: Sometimes no one can figure out why a person has hives. That is called idiopathic because "doctors are too idiotic to figure out the pathology", I've been told. In other words, sometimes it will be unexplained. Hives can be caused by viruses such as influenza and hepatitis, for example, not just allergies. Hopefully, they won't be chronic. ...Read more

Yest I ate pot salad coleslaw and half a sandwich on whole wheat bread and today can't stop having loose still. Is this normal?

No, however...: No, that is not at all normal. The most likely possibilities are either an intestinal virus (which would mean it has nothing to do with what you ate) or a mild case of food poisoning. If potato salad or coleslaw are kept unrefrigerated for several hours bacteria can grow that produce toxins that cause diarrhea. This is not an infection, In either case, you will likely feel better in a day or two. ...Read more

Why is whole wheat bread healthier than regular white bread?

Why is whole wheat bread healthier than regular white bread?

No one knows: The "received wisdom" is that whole-grain bread is healthier than the very processed stuff. It's tastier and more fun to eat. It does change the composition of stool in the intestine and thus the bacterial products. If you believed every obscure-journal claim, you'd be reading uncritically -- and hard-and-clear results -- especially animal studies -- are conspicuously absent. ...Read more
