Gluten Intolerance?
Anyone have gluten intolerance?

I have a digestive tract made of steel. But I have noticed that anytime I eat cereal, I get a lot of gas. And I do mean gas.

I have read about gluten intolerance on the web, but I was interested in asking a few questions to someone who really has it.

is it a high fiber cereal? if so, it may just be gas from adding the extra fiber to your diet that your body is just not used to getting.

As nuts as this may sound...11 years ago, a friend of my in-laws (a self-proclaimed psychic)...completely unsolicited...suggested I try a gluten-free diet. I heard her, but carried on as usual.
Then 4 years ago, after my DS2 was born, I was eating shredded wheat for breakfast...and the story begins. I stopped eating that, and started having eggs instead.
I don't normally eat sandwiches, but I do eat them occasionally.
But, now I started making my own mueslix - a Swiss cereal. I use oats, dried apricots and nuts. And again.
So, I started reading about G.I. and it said that oats can affect people.
I am not sure. It may be the extra fiber, but it seems to only happen when I eat cereal. As I look at my diet, I don't eat a lot of wheat in general, and maybe it is the amount I consume when it is the main part of a meal.

I really think it is the fiber from the oats and the apricots. If you had this gluten intolerance or celiac disease you'd be bothered by all wheat products - not just the oats.
