I had that flu that's been going around. It caused me (I think) to feel like I had motion sickness for a few weeks and the my stomach was a bit off for a week or so. Now I have been getting stomach pain in the mornings that feel just like I was glutened and I think I've traced it back to a ground coffee we use (President's Choice from Superstore). I seem to be okay with instant coffee. My problem is that I'm not sure if this is still the flu messing with me, or a new sensitivity, or I am somehow being glutened with my morning coffee (I REALLY doubt that's it)

Coffee has always been a bit hard on my gut but that was part of the reaon I liked it. Due to celiac and hypothyroidism, my gut was, ahem, "slow" so coffee was a way to get it going in the morning. I am still "slower" than average so coffee remains a help.

Anyone else have a problem with brewed coffee? If so, please tell me it passed! LOL I doubt gluten got in the coffee unless they grind it at the same place they do flours or oats... pretty unlikely. I'm hoping this is because of the flu I had, or the coffee we use has changed, and not a new permanent problem....

I'm trying to cut down on my coffee intake... maybe this is the fates' way of hurrying me along! LOL :rolleyes:

I actuality quit drinking coffee and tea about a month before my elimination diet :ph34r: super scary I know :wacko: . It took me that whole month to get over the headaches . I wanted my head / body clear of the coffee before I started my elimination diet.I did not drink coffee AT ALL during my elimination diet :o That was a very very long 6 months with out any coffee or tea.

I have since added it back :D,,, I :wub: me a good cup of coffee.

Coffee ( as with all things) is an individual thing, if you think it is bothering you, stop drinking it . Then give your self some time to heal before you try reintroducing it .

Coffee acts as a laxative sort to speak. It can also be very hard on a healing gut. There is a chance that it can be reintroduced, but i wouldn't bet on it too much.

 

I quit tea and soda right after my dx and i haven't looked back since.

I lost  coffee and dairy, citrus, soy and about 10 other foods for a few years before and a whole year after DX because the caffeine really agitated me and my GI tract was a burning mess from mouth to rectum.  I had GERD, IBS, etc. etc..and felt like death would be kinder.

 

Anything can give you grief when your gut is still damaged.

 

Now, I drink brewed decaf coffee with half and half every morning and orange juice with no problems whatsoever.

 

Never say never. ;) Things can change.

I've had to pass on the coffee for a few months now, in order to prevent cold sore outbreaks.

It doesn't bother my stomach at all anymore, though it used to. In fact, coffee in the AM is less

upsetting than tea, to my actual stomach, sometimes tea makes me a little nauseous. I can't

even begin to tell you how INCREDIBLY frustrating it is to not have coffee, cuz I lurves it

sooooooooooo much. But, we do what we gotta do!

 

To the OP, coffee did used to give my lower GI tract a hard time. Over the past two years, I've

been able to enjoy it with no GI distress whatsoever. If you do lose coffee for now, don't lose

hope!

I think (or should I say hope - lol) that it was something else. I was eating some chocolates that were not made on a gluten-free line. They had barley malt cc. It was enough to give me stomach upset, bloating, and a general feeling of unwellness but because I did not get my old gluten stomach pain, it took equity a while to figure it out... That is why one should not savour chocolates over a few weeks but should eat it all at once.... After checking the labels better! Lol

Are you sure it's just the coffee or caffeine in the coffee?

I've been totally caffeine free since 2010 and it helped with a lot of my IBS symptoms (colon spasms), but it's also gotten to the point where "decaffeinated" drinks can set me off because of the traces of caffeine.

Coffee has bothered my stomach before and after going gluten free. It's not the caffeine (other sources of caffeine are fine), but other substances in the coffee. It's definately become worse as I get older.

It is coffee that rumbles my belly. Tea and colas don't do it to me.  I'm fine with that though; my morning coffee gets my gut going better than fibre supplements ever could.  LOL

Hmmm...I was extremely lactose intolerant as a baby/toddler but seemed to have out grown it. Until several maybe even ten years ago. I can eat egss and things baked with dairy, no probem. If I have more than one glass of 2% milk or ice cream...I'm get the runs. :unsure: The lower the milk fat, the easier I can tolerate it...I do even better on organic milk. I was recently pregnant ( had a miscarriage last week) and noticed as I did with my first two pregnancies...I can handle milk and ice cream like it's no one's business. I was drinking almost a gallon a day and gluten free chex was my go to food. Wonder what that is all about. 

 

I can also drink coffee, although keeing that to a minimun, acidic foods haven't been a problem since going gluten-free. My GI doc thinks we just caught the celiac disease in its beginng stages. I havent' had symptoms for more than a year, two at most. I have an excellent primary doc who automatically ran a blood test when I came in complaining of severe relux, nausea, and fatigue. He's a godsend

 

Sorry for getting off topic. I'm just kinda curious how some with celiac disease can handle dairy, soy , citrus...etc and some can't. Does it have something to do with how long the celiac disease has been untreated or undiagnosed?

I know I'm lactose intolerant and have been for at least 10 years. I would still eat dairy like  icecream and cottage cheese, and I would just ignore the stomach aches because I had them so often anyways.  LOL   :rolleyes: I honestly don't know how long dairy has bothered me; I wasn't too observant about my diet in the past. It could be since childhood (I'm sure I've had celiac since then).

 

Everyone responds so differently with this disease. For example, I did not have a single nutrient deficiency and my B12 actually exceeded the normal range... There almost seems to be no normal. :huh:

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
