Anyone heard of or have info about WLS and gluten intolerance?  I'm seven years post-op, have developed an autoimmune disorder.  One doctor has suggested it may have been caused by gluten intolerance and that I should consider Paleo diet.

Did you have gluten intolerance before your surgery?  Maybe you were and didn't realize it?  Some of our members have posted about this too.  Here's a few links for you to check out: velop-gluten-intolerance/ ntolerance-or-Celiac-after-weight-loss-surgery/ liac-Disease-or-a-Gluten-Intolerance/ 2/Gluten-Sensitivity-after-Weight-Loss-Surgery-Survey/
(While this survey is closed, there is some good information and a contact for Dr. Rutledge

We hope this helps.  If you need any other assistance or information, let us know at [email protected].

I decided to go gluten free and try to follow that as much as I can . I have not been tested for gluten sensitivity but I don't feel good when I have food with it. Good luck.
