Customer Question

Hi, I have recently been doing a low carbohydrate diet and I may have taken it too far. I began to feel nausea and fatigue. I also would have hypoglycaemia after eating fruit and veg.I have recently just added carbs back in however I am concerned because my stomach has been unsettled as a result, yesterday I ate a huge bowl of pasta which caused gas, sore stomach and diarrhoea. I used to be able to tolerate this food.I am concerned that I have done permanent damage and will no longer be able to eat gluten.
