Poll: Wheat/Gluten-Free for Headaches

If you haven’t read the excellent comments on Wheat/Gluten- and Dairy-Free for Migraine & Headache, please do. Responses are mixed. Not a shocker.

What about you? Have you tried a wheat- or gluten-free diet? Was it useful?

    I’m at about week 6 of a gluten free diet but don’t expect to really know for sure if there has been any long term benefit in terms of migraine prevention short of 6 mos. I’m working with a nutritionist, have been tested as gluten sensitive through a stool culture which is kind of a new test. We’ll see.

    Great idea to work with a nutritionist. Interesting about the stool culture. I hadn’t heard of that before.

    I wish you the best of luck. Let us know how it goes.

    I tested for wheat sensitivity a year ago and have been off wheat ever since. I have not had a single migraine since that time. Though being on a wheat-free diet is challenging, it is worth it to not have to live with migraines, hives, facial flushing, and upset stomach. I have energy now and feel great! One side-note is that I have lost 20 pounds on a wheat-free diet. I now weigh 102 pounds, which is a bit too small, but for the person who wouldn’t mind a side benefit of weight-loss, a wheat-free diet will certainly aid in that area.
