    I recently found out that bread flour has added gluten, so more gluten per quantity than wheat naturally has. I was raised on home made bread machine bread using bread flour. I suspect that the daily overdose of gluten for 10 years or more may have been a big factor in my developing a sensitivity to gluten. I first began realizing gluten was a problem when I had symptoms immediately following eating store bought whole wheat hamburger buns, which also have added gluten. Just my thoughts.

    Uhm, that is a really interesting theory! I've heard of similar cases, something being exposed to in excess triggers a reaction from the body. But tell me are you just intolerant or just allergic to gluten? I think I might suffer from celiac... after all isn't normal at all for a little girl to suffer from joint pain (I did and still do, specially after eating cookies and anything with gluten in it) I'll ask my doctor to perform that test that is used to diagnose celiac. Best of luck with your intolerance/allergy! I truly envy those who can eat everything they want!
