Subject: Re: AS flare - diet and exercise
Hi Marlene - your dead right it was a sort of a test but sort of wishfull thinking!
Although I have been wheat free and corn / maize free for 22 years - I allowed oats for much of the time until recent years. I had been pretty good with them but then wanted to see if I got even better without them a few years back.
When I started my diet at age 26 - I allowed rye bread as well - and I really thrived on it - for a while.
I think I got my answer as to whether I'm better without in the last few weeks - the anwser is yes - I think I am much more stable without any type of gluten at all.
Made some nice scones with rice flour this weekend :). My wife is trying gluten free at the mo for her blood pressure and had one of her lowest reading in ages this morning at 130 / 90!
Been reading a bit the last few days and found this, showing some really good diagrams that show how gluten does its business in autoimmune disease -
