The most common food intolerances are dairy (milk) and gluten (grains.) Eliminating dairy temporarily is pretty easy, going gluten-free is trickier since people with gluten sensitivity must avoid all foods with even a trace amount of gluten.
well i have been tested for celiacs, parasites, bacteria, and had a cat scan all came back normal.i'm asking for answers because i suddenly became extremly bloated in back june and it hasnt gone away. but thats why i ask because i did breifly give up gluten for about a month back in august and it seemed to help a little and more then anything else has helped but i guess i didnt give it a long enough chance. then i got really bad again like pregnant looking. so i gave up gluten again starting 3 days ago. but thats why im asking because ever since this started it is literally everything i eat no matter what or how much that makes me bloated. a handful of raisens, a snickers bar (snickers are among the few gluten free candy bars) or a cup of cofee anything even in small amounts makes me bloat. so i dont understand if i have a food allergy or what. o yeah bloating only symptom no diareah no acid no constipation. to show i am not exagetating here are 2 photos one of my stomach normal and one of my stomach bloated.
o yeah and i am taking many probiotics different ones good ones, obviously not helping.
i take fennel seeds and fennel tea it helps to some extent.
digestive enzymes seem to help when i pop about 20 of them i can eat a banana.
