Hello, not sure how active this community is - but I'd love some support and advice / suggestions!
I'm not sure how to go about getting tested for this. but for months now, anything with wheat/gluten has been giving me all sorts of IBS and cramping issues...is this normal? I may not be necessarily celiac-intolerant, but I DO think I am gluten/wheat intolerant.
I wanted to know, are oats and oatmeal okay, are there certain brands that are better than others?
Also, what about frosting for example on cupcakes and other bakery items? I'm helping out for a school / students' birthday party, and I know there will be a lot of cake/frosting type items. I was curious to know if frosting is safe/ GF, but the cake most likely would not be...
Lastly, how do you get your fiber and avoid sluggish digestion? I usually hear that bran, whole-wheat bread/cereals are necessary for good digestion and avoiding constipation for example! I'm worried that avoiding all this will make that worse, but it can't be any worse than it already is now. Whole wheat breads/grains are HORRIBLE on my stomach.
