Now retired my sister and I both get bloated and get some pain after eating too much bread. Test neg for gluten. Is there a hereditary intolerance?
Gluten intolerance. Gluten-sensitive enteropathy (celiac disease) is much less common than gluten intolerance. Like lactose intolerance, caffeine intolerance, sorbitol intolerance (with regard to needing to restrict each respective substance), people who are gluten intolerant do better to avoid gluten-containing foods. Only about 10% of the population are gluten intolerant. Add gluten back to diet slowly & assess.
