Since some people with ME, including myself, have seen some sort of symptom improvement after eliminating gluten/wheat from our diets, it's worth starting a thread here on this subject for those who want to post on this topic. Clearly, giving up gluten does not help many ME patients, but as one whose daily stomach problems went away quite dramatically, I think it's worth considering if you have gut issues. Giving up gluten may also have cleared up my regular two or three times a year cystitis problems. I should add that I have not had a test for coeliac, and my doctor didn't suggest me being tested when I mentioned that giving up gluten had made a difference. I've been on a gluten free diet for about three years, if I remember correctly, though I'm actually avoiding all grains for the most part now. But that's more recent. Although the stomach issues were the most dramatic improvement, I do think it might have helped with other symptoms in the longer term. I was losing fluids daily through diarrhoea while not taking salt in my food for decades, and hardly drinking at all, all of which was probably not doing me any favours.
