Okay, so I was just diagnosed on the 22nd. And haven't even been gluten free for 1 week. But still every time I eat I have to go to the bathroom like right after. Is this normal? Does it take a while for your body to get used to gluten free?

I experience that only when I have an issue with my thyroid. Do you have a thyroid issue? Have you been checked?

Hi HeartRN,

 

Yes, it is not unusual to have GI symptoms for months after going gluten-free.  Sometimes years even.  For some people going gluten-free is a big change in diet.  Your GI system has to adjust.  There are bacterial changes that will happen over time since you have changed the diet of the bacteria in your gut too.  That by itself can cause many GI symptoms.  I don't remember if I posted these tips for you or not.

 

Get tested before starting the gluten-free diet.
Get your vitamin/mineral levels tested also.
Don't eat in restaurants
Eat only whole foods not processed foods.
Eat only food you cook yourself, think simple foods, not gourmet meals.
Take probiotics.
Take gluten-free vitamins.
Take digestive enzymes.
Avoid dairy.
Avoid sugars and starchy foods.
Avoid alcohol.

Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."
Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.
Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head.

I didn't start having solid bowel movements until 6 weeks after going gluten-free and I had digestive problems after eating for 6-8 weeks.  Give it time, it will start to improve.

 

One tip - do not eat tons of gluten-free products right at the start.  Try to avoid all the gluten-free breads, muffins, etc until your digestive system has a chance to rest, just eat whole foods.
