Silly Question 2

19 posts in this topic

Stomach noises.

Ok, I know we are all different etc BUT

As I am eating many of the same foods day in and day out due to restricted diet...I wonder why one day my GI tract is noiseless and then next day or day after my stomach makes terrible noises having eaten the same food? The kind if noises you get when something hasn't gone down right.

I feel really silly asking... But does it mean that my stomach is 'bothered' by this food?

Is it trying to tell me it doesn't want it? I don't get pain. I get a bit of gas and bubbling.

I was once told that if it causes gas then you shouldn't eat it as you are struggling to fully digest? (But my non celiac husband has a gassy tum all the time). Should I be expecting a quiet gut all the time?

It's not paranoia, just don't want to get inflamed in there, wanna heal .... Ok maybe just a little paranoia ;)

Sorry for these odd questions, they are subjects I have previously been too embarrassed to ask!

Hi designerstubble

I used to get terrible stomach rumbling after gluten breakfasts pre-gluten free days - gurgling/glooping :ph34r: .

Also slooping noises (on running/walking) as if stomach contents had turned to liquid - eewh! tmi - had forgotten about that  :wacko:  also pre-gluten free.

Now mostly all quiet!

However, hubs (who kindly went gluten free too) gets a lot of stomach noises so I will be glad to read some answers to your question here.

Sorry - wasn't much help.

Yes! I was very noisy too! And to be honest half the time now things are quiet! But then out of nowhere comes the bubbling... It's horrible! It's so so noisy too? I'm eating a process free diet so annoys me to think that my body might be complaining about my healthy restricted diet now too!!

Thanks for answering :)

I'd never really considered a noisy stomach to be indicative of any stomach problems, they just make noises sometimes, but then again I'd been undiagnosed for quite awhile. Regardless, the process of digesting food is going to be noisy. Maybe the differences you notice have something to do with how much water or liquid you've had, if you swallowed a lot of air when you ate (apparently a lot of air is why when you don't eat your stomach will be louder), if you've been sitting or standing or lying down. (I'd guess that it'd be less noisy if it's not as close to the outside of your body.)

Of all the things to be concerned about, this is not one of the ones I'm personally worried about.

I assumed we were not referring to grumbling 'hungry' stomach noises which would be normal.

Mine were definitely to do with gluten and the liquid stomach was not from having had liquid but something strange happening to the food!!!!!

 

Happy to report I don't get this gluten free  :) .

"Stomach noise — such as rumbling, gurgling and growling — typically is due to normal digestion. Stomach growling can occur when you're hungry. But it can also occur after eating or between meals when food is being digested."

Hi

If you read the MayoClinic link which you kindly supplied, it goes on to say that excessive stomach noise can be caused by underlying stomach condition like IBS, especially when accompanied by bloating, gas, etc. I should think celiac comes under this heading for sure!

 

I was undiagnosed for many years so my stomach came up with plenty of methods to show it's displeasure at what I was sending down for it.

Shows what a slow learner I was too  :ph34r: !

Thanks, lots of valid points I hadn't thought of which are quite possible. I guess because my corn intolerance started out as a grumbling gut I am paranoid!

I might add though, the noises are coming from my duodenum and beginnings of smaller bowel. It's high up on the right side virtually all the time. It does make me feel uncomfortable. (But.. I honestly don't know if its just me worrying unduly?) I suspect it's a bit of both? Perhaps as I am still healing sometimes 'normal' food might annoy my upper gi from time to time!

I will say that one of the times I got it was after a pint of fruit smoothie :) fluid!!

I will keep an extra eye out and watch for your points!

Thank you

Seems pretty normal. I really notice it if I drink a big glass of water and then lay down.

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/stomach-noise/nu00189

Actually I know what you mean! I have noticed that also! It annoys me because the noises come from my upper right gi (prob duodenum)... So I assume that it's having a hard time with something. My corn intolerances grew from these kinds of noises. As much as I don't want to be paranoid (I don't want food ruling my life!) it's hard to ignore. Guess I'll wait and see? I'll try to ignore unless I see a pattern emerge!

Thanks for the link. I always forget to look at mayo!

Yep me too. I think I must have been in reverse gear?!! I also assumed that I was worn out with motherhood and night vigils by my sons bed when he was asthmatic etc. I also assumed that as my husbands guts made dreadful noises, mine were normal!!

It wasn't until I was in utter despair and losing tons of weight very quickly that I thought that something was amiss. Me? Lose weight easily? Gotta be something up here!!

I get this once in a while. It has, apparently, nothing whatsoever to do with what I've

eaten. It will do it sometimes if I've gone too long without food and then eaten a lot.

Sometimes it does it for no apparent reason. One day a friend of mine thought it was

funny and teased me about something bursting out of my chest a la Aliens.... I think

tummies just make noise sometimes. On the other hand, I cannot remember my

stomach ever once making noise from being hungry. So go figure!

! Thanks, well it seems I am not alone then?! Which is reassuring! And your friend is right! It does sometimes sound like there is a whole new life force going on in there, lol :)

Thank you all for replies

My massive gurgles and bloating were due to SIBO, according to my GI. I did a round of antibiotics followed by probiotics and the gurgles pretty much went away.

 

Except I just got accidentally glutened, so now everything's back. :(

Oh no, sorry to hear that. Does being glutened mean the SIBO comes back again? That's awful. I don't know much about SIBO, read up a little on what & why but didn't realise that a symptom was gurgling. Did you get the gurgling all the time after eating? I have been on probiotics on and off for a 3-4 months... My docs are pretty useless here in UK, I'm pretty much muddling through on my own.

Hmmmm. Maybe I should look into SIBO!

Thank you Gatita! :)

Ps. Are you Spanish?!

And hope it gets better again soon for you

Yeah, I'm learning more about SIBO on my own too -- as anyone can tell on these forums, I've been on an awareness-raising campaign about it LOL.

 

My doc actually diagnosed me by my gurgles! He knew the specific sound. I was getting them from eating pretty much anything. I don't know yet if glutening will bring the SIBO bugs back, I sure hope not because I just went thru a nasty round of antibiotics to attack them.

 

I also just learned that SIBO can cause elevated anti-gliadin antibodies, which I have.

 

I'm not Spanish but I speak Spanish :) Would LOVE to go there someday.

I also hope you don't need to take anymore antibiotics, they're awful. I know they are necessary sometimes but I hate them. Interesting about your levels going up??

I am currently listening to my guts all the time, they defo rumble about 20 minutes after eating most times... I'll keep an eye on it... And hope that I don't have SIBO.

Hope all ok for you now.

Oh and I lived in Andalucia for 6 years, awesome place to live, wish I could go back :( I'm half Spanish... Would trade UK anyday! Intenta ir de vacaciones que te incantare..

Hi

Must jump on the band wagon here ....

Forgot to mention before but have been reminded this weekend as presumably cc'd or other non-tolerant food - my stomach does this kind of angry howling low down, could be trapped wind effect (sorry, hard to explain  :ph34r: ) which I have had before. In the past, with gluten, has been very bad.

 

We have a friend who comes to stay and has very bad osteoporosis and I have heard his stomach do the same thing (have not commented  :ph34r: ).

Have not liked to bang on too much about celiac and gluten being the cause of all ills !!!!

Yes I get a howling noise too sometimes! And wind too! I just always assume to some extent this is normal? It's so difficult trying to work it all out! Sorry you got glutened :( btw.

And I know what you mean about attributing everyone's ailments to celiac... I have had to stop myself with friends and family... I guess being only 5 months into it I am on an anti gluten campaign to save the human race!! I do have gluten paranoia at the moment for sure, I used to make my sons sandwiches and handle all sorts of wheaty things but I just can't do it now... Even though I'm sure handling is ok!

Anyway, thanks for jumping on the bandwagon... And maybe try and suggest your friend gets some bloods done. You can tell them at least it will stop you from going on at them about it :D good luck

    • Today was the big day when I went to the GI and this is the first time I have felt heard about and well taken care of.  I told him about the two celiac blood tests  (in my first post) normal, he said that often happens, even with people who do have celiac and he needed to see the report and pictures from my endoscope.    I had filled out the appropriate Kaiser paperwork for Sutter to send all my medical records, but they ended up sending a celiac disease to me with the records, which Sutter said they could not use.  We also talked about gluten sensitivity v. celiac, and he said a lot of people are sensitive to gluten even if they don't have celiac. He said that my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which can be caused by any number of things.  He asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which limits certain foods and requires no gluten due to what being He said my symptoms sound like classic IBS, which he said can be caused by any number of things, including gluten sensitivity.  He has asked if I would try the FODMAP diet, which has restricted foods as well as no gluten because most gluten products have wheat in them.  So, since I am planning on going gluten free anyway, and I don't want another endoscope or blood tests if absolutely necessary, I am going to try the FODMAP diet and see what happens. I filled a consent form at the GI office today to have all my records sent to him so he can view the endoscope pathology report and photos.  I have an appointment with a Registered Dietician on September 30, and follow up appointment the GI in 4 months. 
    • gluten-free andee, according to an article on celiac.com  that talks about this subject see this link http://www.celiac.com/articles/24406/1/Celiac-Diease-and-Other-Autoimmune-Diseases-Equals-Low-Inflammatory-Diet/Page1.html Quoting the author "In the author's personal experience, a gluten-free diet has many limitations. The reactivity between alpha gliadin and corn, millet, oats, rice and dairy has been denounced as invalid by gastroenterologists and celiac disease researchers. While at a medical school in Missouri, biopsies did not show improvement in villous atropy until all alpha gliadin sources and corn, millet, rice and oats were removed from the diet."  Note this research is two years old but hilites the problem with non-gluten rice protein that you are having. It is the alpha gliadin sources that it causing the cross reactivity you are experiencing when you eat rice protein's. She says quoting "Celiac disease has gotten the most attention in antibody research, but the current data on cross-reactivity of antibodies is allowing a better understanding of gluten sensitivity. Antigen reactivity to alpha-gliadin can trigger immune attacks on many individuals beyond those with positive DQ 2, DQ 8 and TTG test results. She goes on to say "A low inflammatory diet customized to each person through testing for cross-reactivity or elimination diet protocols is needed to restore a state of health and well-being."  which sounds exactly like what you are doing. If you are still having problems after elminating rice a 30 day elimination of all the alpha gliadin proteins might be in order.  Corn is a common reactivity problem I hear with a gluten allergy from my friends as well as the obvious lactose problems that can be common among celiacs.  But rarely do you hear Rice allergy's brought up in context of a gluten allergy. I am glad you are making progress on finding your triggers. Read the whole article for yourself to see if there are nuggets of truth I did not highlight in my response. I hope this is helpful. Good luck on your journey to health. Posterboy,
    • One other thing - you might be able to tolerate some dairy if it's only the FODMAPs problem. I discovered that many cheese such as cheddar have effectively no lactose. And my wife sometimes makes 24 hour yoghurt, which also has effectively no lactose. Those have been fine for my tummy.
    • I'm new to the forum, so this topic may already have been covered....please forgive me, if that's the case.  I am in the beginning stages of guiding the development of a 504 plan to file for my 6th-grade daughter who was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 2 weeks ago. The diagnosis was made with a biopsy. My first question...A 504 is what's necessary....not just the IHCP, correct or no? I have the Physician's Statement & the Medical Evaluation report from our GI specialist. What else do I need to have at the ready? The team has requested we go ahead and write the IHCP & then include it with the 504.  And my second question...What accommodations have others found relevant to include on the IHCP  & 504? I just watched a 504-Plan webinar I found on this forum & it recommends the following: -access to gluten-free food in classroom & cafeteria - excused absence from activities that use gluten-containing foods or materials -  prevent cross-contamination in school food service - use of microwave to heat personal meals -  bathroom priveleges Is there anything I need to consider adding? My daughter does prefer eating school meals rather than packing a lunch from home & I am concerned about special events, overnight field trips etc. My learning curve is steep. What am I missing? Teach me, please & thanks so much! This forum has already helped me tremendously these past few weeks.
