Gluten Free But No Improvements
0

8 posts in this topic

Dear all,

I was diagnosed with celiac disease two months ago (Marsh IIIa) and I immediately started a gluten free diet, but so far I haven't seen any improvements, still copying with diarrhea and abdominal pain. My GI told me that diarrhea is supposed to be the first symptom to improve/disappear but I am still experiencing frequent BM especially in the morning. My other major issue is the abdominal pain especially after meals. I was wondering how long will it take to see any improvements and if there's something I can do to soothe the pain sometimes it is excruciating.

Thanx

 

Maurizio

2 months isn't really that long.  It can take 2 months just to figure out how to eat gluten-free.  Are you eating out or food other people prepare?  Do you have your own fresh Peanut butter, mayo, butter tub, etc that isn't full of gluten crumbs?  Your own gluten-free toaster?  A colander that has not been used for gluten pasta?  Are your medications gluten-free?  I think you are a guy so you probably don't wear lipstick - but are you kissing anyone with gluten in thier lipstick or who has eaten gluten (unless they wash thier mouth well)?  Checked the ingredients on food you just assume doesn't contain gluten (Rice Krispies and corn flakes get a lot of people)?

 

Here is some info that might help

That's a good idea.  But first, we need to find out if he even has a good understanding of eating gluten-free.  Many people who are new to Celiac don't realize, or haven't thought about, the odd places they might be getting gluten.  Like the shared toaster or PB jar.  If he has all of these down, then eliminating dairy would be a good next step.  I'm waiting for him to answer before throwing out a lot of "maybe causes".
