Skin rashes, vomiting, and seizures: Wheat Belly followers share their re-exposure experiences

When you have eliminated wheat and grains from your life, odd things happen when you get re-exposed. First of all, you’ve lost the partial–partial, never total–tolerance to some of the adverse effects of wheat and grains, and they come back with a vengeance upon re-exposure. And it’s not just due to the “gluten.” Those of you hanging around here understand that there is far more to wheat and grains than gluten, such as reactions to the bowel toxicity of wheat germ agglutinin, or the mind “fog” of gliadin-derived opiate peptides, or allergic reactions to alpha amylase inhibitors. And the reactions can be really strange, sometimes even dangerous or life-threatening. The reactions are as varied as the people who have them. To illustrate, I recently asked the Wheat Belly Facebook audience to share their wheat/grain re-exposure experiences. You will appreciate that there is nothing “indulgent” about a re-exposure, no more than a facial rash, joint pain, or diarrhea are causes for celebration. Stop eating cucumbers for a year, then have a cucumber salad: nothing happens with re-exposure. Banish eggs from your diet, then have an omelet: nothing happens. But try this with wheat and grains, and all hell can break loose. Read the comments and it quickly becomes clear that wheat/grain re-exposure is a really, really bad idea. Here are some of the responses that flooded in within hours: Amelia: “The day after I’ve ...

Authors: Wong A, Keith C, Gregory H, Liew D Abstract COVID-19 brings with it unprecedented challenges in clinical management. An important component of care is the provision of safe and effective symptom control. Given the emerging literature reporting on the risk of QT prolongation and arrhythmias associated with COVID-19 disease and experimental therapies, we highlight some considerations for the prescribing of palliative care medications in this context. Based on the experience gained from palliative care referrals at our institution prior to and during the COVID-19 pandemic, and in collaboration with our clinic...

We report a case of using ketamine as a patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) for the treatment of CPS. A 58-year-old male with CPS presented with severe generalized body pain refractory to multiple pharmacological interventions. He was started on a basal infusion rate at 0.3 mg/kg/h with a ketamine PCA bolus of 10 mg with a 10-minute lockout period. Over the next 7 days, the basal infusion rate was titrated up to 2.1 mg/kg/h relative to the number of times the patient pressed the PCA. At the end of the trial, the patient reported 0/10 pain with lightheadedness on the first day being the only side ...
