Digestive enzymes with every meal help me. If I don't use them, I feel like I need antacids.
And keep something in your stomach all the time - preemptive eating - I assume it feels acidic?
If it feels like your food is just sitting there try Betaine HCL - more acid.
This is the protocol that has helped our family -- we also have additional intolerances that were causing gluten like symptoms until we sorted them out.
We also use peppermint or ginger teas.
Some find relief with peppermint or slippery elm supplements.
I haven't used tums in many years, but last time I checked there were only select bottles that were gluten-free and most generics weren't...might want to double check your current tums.
A food/symptom log can be invaluable to track down if something else is causing gluten-like symptoms..
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/25/13 - MCAD
Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile
My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free
Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS
Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.
