celiacosaurus added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Symptoms Worse After Going Gluten-FreeHi all,
I was biopsy-diagnosed about 5 weeks ago and started a strict gluten-free diet about a month ago. I felt grand for a few days, had my first solid BMs in months, and my fatigue has greatly improved, but for the past couple weeks all of my BMs have been voluminous, watery diarrhea -- no solids at all. I seem to need to go as soon as I wake up, immediately after eating, and sometimes inbetween meals, too (though I don't wake up during the night to go). I also sometimes have trouble getting to the bathroom on time.
I did have loose BMs before diagnosis, but they were always at least semi-solid. I know I need to see the doctor again, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had this experience or has any idea what might be happening.
I've replaced my toaster, pans, cutting board, etc., so I don't think cross-contamination is the issue. I'm experimenting with cutting out lactose, but it doesn't seem to be helping.
