what can you eat when you have wheat intollerance

Re: Coeliac and wheat intollerance: from on 2005-01-18

You just have to change your staple carbohydrate. Rice, corn, potatoes are OK. I eat rice cakes instead of bread - and that's not a problem because I'd gone off bread anyway - it used to make me feel rough. You can get breakfast cereals based on rice (not rice crispies because they have malt extract in them) and corn. There are other more exotic cereals (quinoa and amarinth) but I haven't tried them. I've found living without wheat only becomes a problem when you go out somewhere when you realise that the world (this part of it anyway) is dominated by sandwiches, cakes and biscuits

No it hasn't apparently it's made from the seeds of a member of the rhubarb family - and it's popular in Russia.

Just realised the question had been answered. Waiting for my son to see a paedatrician as he has had a sore stomach for 2 years, which i put down to 'worry' anyhow have cut wheat/gluten and other gluten containing cereals which seems to have helped. Just wondering if anyone else has night sweats associated with their condition, as he seems to suffer from particularly bad ones. Many thanks Sue

Sue

Night sweats are a recognised symptom of untreated coeliac condition.
( but they can also be related to other problems )
It is important to mention to the doctor any other incidental symptoms - even ones that seem minor or not relevant - as it will help him with his diagnosis.

I know it may seem harsh, but it is best not to change the childs diet before the tests are complete, as it may make it more difficult to decide if the tests are positive or not.

However if the tests are a long way off, then discuss the improvement when you restrict gluten with your own doctor, and take it from there.

Many Thanks

There is always a possibility that a bout of food poisoning can trigger a food intolerance or allergy.
I am not familiar with the rus test. What do the initials stand for?

Hi
i have been suffering from fatigue for nearly 2 years now, within the last few months i have been having stomach cramps and real bad wind! I have had all the blood test done by my GP everything has come back fine apart from my Iron was low when this all started about 2 years ago but has come back to a normal level. Could it be that i'm wheat intolerant?
I have recently cut down on the amount of bread i eat and i feel a little better.
