Clues to Gluten Sensitivity

So I have heard all about gluten sensitivity. Was convinced that I have a sensitivity to it — been aligning with a Paleo view of eating — no wheat, rice, beans,anything with gluten, dairy. Fresh fruit, veggies, lean meat, nuts, berries — and would say I am probably 80-90% on target. I lost some weight, I feel great — and I know when I do have some bread or something that would be defined as ‘crap’ food – I can feel how it affects me in more ways than one.  But somehow, even knowing all of that — It never occurred to me that my son, Nate, maybe as well.

I read the article above and the first paragraph described my boy exactly:

Stephanie Meade’s 4-year-old daughter had constipation and threw temper tantrums.

Nate has had issues for as long as he has been around — so, finally I thought — hey why not try 2 weeks Gluten Free for him and see what happens. DUH! Why on earth did it take me this long to think about that!!! Starting yesterday, Nate went gluten free – although he ate dinner at his friends house and I told him not to eat macaroni & cheese, but guess what he ate?? Macaroni & Cheese and sure enough he has a bad stomachache.  Strange coincidence — I will keep you posted on the results.
