You can make a joke of it but it nearly killed me. A wheatthin will knock me down for 18 hours and give me cramps, body aches and any number of issues. I laughed when I first heard about this then I got it. If I get a little cross contamination I feel like crap for days. No joke this crashed my immune system.
It’s not just the wheat that takes someone with Celiac disease out it is anything that has gluten in it including a lot of antibiotics. My husband very nearly died as well, caused him to hemorrhage and had to have 6 units of blood. He never i intentionally went off the diet and was well for three years until Melanoma got him. If he by some chance he was exposed to gluten, he was sick for three days without fail.
After my heart surgery last year somebody told me to follow the Al Sharpton rule, which is,
“White is not right.”
It really means avoid or limit bread, pasta, potatoes, & rice. Good advice, I’ve always had success with the Atkins route.
