The labeling (at least in the U.S.) is more a precaution for the company.  If there is even the slightest chance that a food could be contaminated by an allergen, the company must state that on the packaging so that they aren't sued by anyone.  It's also helpful for consumers who are extremely allergic to certain ingredients, but I think it's more of a legal matter than anything else.  If it says "may contain..." or "made in a facility that processes..." but also states that it is gluten free it should be safe.

I don't worry so much about the "may contain" or "processed in a facility that also processes..." My own kitchen is a facility that processes milk, and (spelt) gluten, even though I don't eat those!

But be very wary of the actual ingredients in pre-packaged gluten free foods or mixes. There are very, very few gluten-free items that are safe for me. Most GF breads, crackers, cookies, etc, contain flours I can't eat (garbanzo bean, corn, and/or potato) and most contain "avoid"  gums such as xanthan gum, guar gum, or carrageenan. These thickeners are added to give better texture to the finished product, but they're damaging to the gut.

Learn how to cook, and get variety by changing things around, with compliant ingredients, in your own kitchen.

I didn't read threw all the post but couldn't help but ask. Do you have a gallbladder?  Mine was removed just about five years ago.  Since I have had the same symptoms.  Can't leave the house before 10:30.  My AB diet has helped tremendously.  Still have issues occasionally.  Saw your food list.  Too much fruit could cause the runs.  Just a thought.

Top four food allergens:  1) Dairy (milk, cheese, etc)  2) Whole grains (esp. wheat)  3)  Beans, nuts, legumes  4)  Citrus fruit.

An overwhelming majority of people in the world have at least minor allergic irritation with any or all of these.

As we know from Dr. D., almost all of us have problems with some of each of these categories, but others from the same category are often medicinal.  We often need some guidance to filter the major offenders out so the body can heal enough to tell us what we need / don't want.

What is gallbladder? In italian it means "cistifellea" which is an internal organ of the digestive system, but I do not know if you want to indicate that.

Anyway, with no dairy and no whole grains the diet is already strict. Now I'm eating with this diet, I hope to see some results in the next days.

Anyway, yes I have a gallbladder

I am continuing with the diet. I feel a little better. Diarrhea seems to have stopped and I have less air, but today I have the opposite problem, I feel constipated. Maybe my gut is regularizing and I need a few more days to achieve regular bowel movements.

You may very well bounce between diarrhea and constipation a few times as the body heals and regulates properly again...  Allow it the time to heal and you will be rewarded...

I just finished going through this.  After the diarrhea stopped, I got stuck.  Then after a few good days adding the Larch powder and keeping on the program I had a solid movement.

Then I had another bout.. with diarrhea and horrific pain and discovered the items that I had added back in that caused the re-occurance.  

So I cut them out and it took a few days and then i was back to being stuck again!   BUT I kept on program and added even more healing supp's from the Blood Type Store and now today I had a completely normal solid bowel movement that was healthy.  NO pain.  

It's averaging about every two days now.. but I'm feeling very good that today was a great sign of healing.

The BTD supp's for this issue and for inflammation, as well as my eating according to my Swami are all doing their magic.

Keep on your healing program... you will improve.  

I did go to the doc by the way when things got 'stuck' and he told me to increase fiber and that eventually it would move.  

Hope this helps!

BluesSinger, you are correct that you are moving in the right direction.  And healing happens in stages and can often plateau.  It took a long time to develop the problems and it takes time to heal.

Thank you Victoria... man.. this past 6 weeks of healing was a bitc... It's been kind of alot of aches and pains as my body let go of stuff...

I did have one setback where I had two days where I ate wheat and some sugar... but then i got back on track.. thank the Good Lord.  

I've been more and more appreciative of the BTD Supp's as I've used them and my Swami foods for healing.  I am not 100% compliant.. I still drink organic soy in my tea and I do a very small amount of mayo and mustard.. (very small), maybe once a week but that's it.  

My big challenge is coming up however as we drive 5 days across country moving.  I don't do well on long drives without coffee... however I'm anxious to see how I do now that I've been off coffee and my fatigue during the day has pretty much ended..   I may do fine.  I'm praying for God to help me.. cause that old addiction voice wants to kick in.

IBS is often pre-diagnosed before Celiac disease.

IMPORTANT TO GET THE 4-ANTIBODY CELIAC BLOOD PANEL BEFORE STOPPING EATING WHEAT/BARLEY/RYE !!!

Other IBS causes:

- Lactose intolerance. (This is easily tested by a GI by administering large quantities of lactose orally. Hydrogen breath measurements are taken every hour for 4 hours to determine how the body is digesting the lactose - or not, as the case may be)
- Fructose intolerance
- Wheat allergy - wholly separate from celiac; histamine skin tests done in 1 hour at the allergist.

stool test is less harmful GIME....
no way would I ever ingest gluten for weeks to test positive

same with lactose intolerance tests...

ABO guidelines personalized and specific to physiology are best followed....

who wants a non self antigen sugar in their system, causing an exacerbated inflammatory reaction???

D galactosamine is the BT B antigen sugar.......and thus all foods have been given a specific value, thanks to Dr D s life s work

here s to 15 years of wellness and more to come!

Ingestion hidden gluten once will put me out of commission for 3 weeks; it's frightening to imagine what eating gluten for one month would do!!! So Lola, I haven't consciously ingested gluten for 18 months, and before that is was only 3-4 times monthly. At this stage, would a stool sample determine if I was celiac? Judging from the mess my fingerprints were in 18 months ago, and the info that Dr. D. posted on how in the 50's the fingerprints were used to determine if one had celiac disease, it seems that I am. If I can get a diagnosis at this stage with a stood sample, I would go for it, but no way will I ingest wheat to find out.

Deflect, polyflora and 4 Intrinsia daily for the past 6 months have fast forwarded my healing. I am so grateful for Dr. D'Adamo's protocols, supplements and generosity in sharing this with the public and not just for his private practice!

Just a general note about IBS... Most of us here don't eat Splenda or sucralose, but for those who may be beginning with BTD or tempted over the holidays, it can cause IBS symptoms.  Carrageenan can as well, so look out in dairy products and soy milk for that one.

Also, those who react to gluten, coffee is most likely to cause a cross reaction out of all foods.  The body can easily mistake it for gluten.  For those who get coffee, or drink it anyway, look out for that.

Stool test is unreliable. Do not recommend. (And you would have to be eating wheat/barley/rye even if it were worth the stool you use for it)

Coffee and gluten? No way. How on earth does the body mistake a gliadin protein for coffee??? Keep drinking your coffee.

PS - The genetic test HLA-DQ2 or DQ8 can help you determine if you or your family are at risk for celiac disease (autoimmune). If you do not have the gene, then perhaps it is not autoimmune, but rather one of the many types of gluten sensitivity. No one has enough of the right enzymes to digest gluten. Celiacs' bodies see the undigested bits and treat it like a virus or bacteria, launching an immune response. Other reactions may not be autoimmune in nature. And you don't need to be eating gluten to get the genetic test.

Ok, I just dug this up, and it makes no sense. He's saying it cross-reacts with antibodies.

http://drclark.typepad.com/dr_david_clark/2011/09/coffee-and-gluten-sensitivity-surprising-news.html

But if you're not eating gluten, then you shouldn't have antibodies. Celiacs are monitored for conformity to the diet by checking antibody levels. They go away when the gluten goes away.

Problem solved?
