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

Gluten sensitivity : You may be gluten sensitive or intolerant. Try avoiding gluten products for a week and see if it helps. If it does then you can request your doctor to test you for gluten intolerance. Good luck ...Read more

Gluten sensitivity: Abdominal symptoms that are triggered by eating bread are suspicious for a gluten sensitivity. If you exclude all gluten and get better, then have difficulty when you reintroduce gluten (EG, wheat products), then you will know that is the cause. Best to talk with your doctor about this possibility. ...Read more

When off wheat for a day, bloat, gas and pain are gone. Then when I eat pizza and white bread the problems return. Intolerance or allergy to something?

Wheat allergy/gluten: A wheat allergy can go away pretty quickly. The other wheat-related problem that is common is celiac disease or gluten enteropathy. However, most people with celiac dz do not get better with just one day of avoiding wheat. You could have either, or neither. Some wheat problems don't show up in the tests we run, but if you feel better off it, stay off it. Antihistamines may help if it's allergy. ...Read more

I have diarrhea and gas every morning, I eat about 2 sticks of chalk daily. Usually at nights I eat a slice of bread and some milk. This has been going on for some time I think it has something to do with the bread but I'm not sure?

? lactose intolerant: Many people can not digest milk sugar,called lactose. Sometimes they may drink regular milk by taking an over-the-counter pill containing lactase, the enzyme necessary to digest it. All that milk sugar is a delight to your bowel flora--they ferment it, causing gas and diarrhea. Now, the desire to eat chalk is called "pica", and may be caused by a deficiency, such as iron. See your pcp. ...Read more

I been having gas from fiber bars , green apples and bananas and whole grain bread .will the gas eventually go away if I keep on diet and toughen it ?

Don't think so: People who eat lots of fiber tend to have lots of gas, as the undigested fiber is a picnic for billions of bowel bacteria. There are reportedly more billions of bacteria inside our bowels than the number of cells we have making up our own bodies. The bacteria will likely keep eating and keep making gas, as long as the "food" keeps coming down the pipe. One can try weaning down the fiber. ...Read more

Welcome to Low Carb: Very typical reaction if you are going extremely low carb......The next day or so the constipation will set in as well. Possibly try increasing your carbs a little but just make them more complex....Instead of simple sugars. For example "whole grain oatmeal or pasta" instead of "regular oatmeal and white pasta". ...Read more
