> gluten

fwiw. Never celiac as a child through my early 20's.... then things slowly changed and started having issues that i chalked up to aging and not something else.

I know this from personal experience far to well. It took me decades to figure out for myself and my own body. We're all different but...

Anti-biotics can cause gluten intolerance that can lead to celiac and IBS responses and diagnoses and positive tests across the board.

A standard course of anti-biotics is enough to completely screw the gut microbiome and for me, cause celiac and often ibs responses. Then a weird cycle can happen when dealing with many doctors to treat the different symptoms that prolongs the problem.

I can reset via specific probiotics and slowly re-introducing it. It takes me about 3 to 5 five months to reset, dependent on how long i had to take the antibiotics. I worked with some PhD folks as a "hail mary" before i said goodbye to certain foods forever.

Most folks seem to have gluten issues, they just don't realize it because it can present in many manners. Headspace is a big part of most people's responses.

I like my occasional pizza and soughdough to much, and I love a good burrito, and screw the medical world that told me I could not keep enjoying these things.

I second the question, which probiotics?

I'm about to go on antibiotics for SIBO.

My two core ones that work for me:



I have others but those are my core to fix my antibiotic induced problems. It took a few helpful PhD folks and many years to figure something out that works for me. Also I tend to take Dapsone for a week or two after my other anti-biotic round when I have to take them. It really makes a huge difference after my initial anti-biotic round, while I transition off them with the start of my probiotic routine. I do not take them together, i split my day on the gut reprogramming, dapsone at night, probiotics in the morning while I get off the whole antibiotic routine. It does take a few months before i stop having the responses to the gluten. Then I am free until something triggers my hidradenitis and i have to get back on the anti-biotics and start all over.

Also, I like fermented things. Pickled stuff, kim chi, etc. I do not do yogurts. I expect what works for others is highly dependent on what you eat already and the individual state of your own gut microbiome. I don't eat much in the way of sugar or bread/wheat based things that have gluten outside what I mentioned before. No cakes, no cookies, no candy, no crackers. I avoid processed foods most of the time, though occasionally on a holiday or special occasion will indulge in something sweet.

Dr. Amy Myers (and others) recommends soil based probiotics for SIBO. Those are what I always use, and it helps me a lot.
