20 posts in this topic

I had a positive blood test for Celiac's  in the late fall of 2012 . Biopsy confirmed Celiac late December. The symptoms that brought me to my GP were as follows: intense pain on my right abdominal  side  , joints ached, moderate headache on left side ,chronic  loose stool, bloating and distenuated stomach, extreme fatigue, insomnia and I truly had  a very difficult time articulating my thoughts or finishing a sentence. One of the most profound changes was my mental health. Normally very sure of my decisions, I could not make one, and procrastinated. I become frustrated with nearly every normal daily activity. Every email needed to be read several times to comprehend, focusing during a conversation was impossible, I did not have the mental energy to execute simple directions to prepare a meal.

 

I started the Gluten Free diet prior to Xmas 2012. My success with this followed a slow learning curve. Eventually, my headache, joint pain , abdominal pain and insomnia were the first symptoms to gradually dissipate. I know I have inadvertently eaten gluten, the above symptoms return, although not with the same intensity.

 

I am 6.5 months into gluten-free however my mental acuity has not returned, and an unexplained underlying anxiety has replaced my normal personality. For the past 6 months,  I have exposed myself to 98-99 % less gluten than prior to my diagnosis. However, I am constantly exhausted, exercise( I run 20-25 miles a week for the past 35 years) use to elevate my mood and sharpen my focus, now it just fatigues me.

 

 

I  learned early on, I cannot eat at a restaurant, no matter the claim of being " Gluten Free ". Nor anyone else's cooking even though they make the same claim. Is it too early in the " healing process " too expect to feel better? I am moving in the right direction regarding the relief of my physical symptoms, however   mentally  I feel very dull and anxious .

 

My 6 mo. blood work number below:

IGA=17

IGG=8

It is still pretty early in the healing process.  My neurological symptoms took longer to heal.  Have you considered a produce and unprocessed meat diet?  That was helpful for me.  The fact that you had problems with eating at restaurants might indicate that you are more sensitive to cc than average.

I have not thought about a " unprocessed meat and produce " diet. I certainly would consider it. I appreciate your insight. I have kept a food journal, however, it is difficult to pin down what the offending food(s).

it is pretty early on, especially if you had been having symptoms left untreated for a long time.  i had this for 25 years, untreated, so i figure it's going to take awhile.  your nerves have to heal, too.  i'm 3 years in and still noticing improvement.  i don't eat alot of processed foods but i do eat some - the less ingredients, the better - food journal is always a good idea when you're trying to figure things out.  are there any times when you're feeling 'clearer' than others, or vice-versa?  it's boring, but you could do an elimination diet?

Hello notme, It is good to hear you are moving in the right direction . You have given me pause for thought regarding the length of time I may have been unknowingly doing damage. A good number of years ago I received a diagnosis of  "Irritable bowel syndrome ". Also, I have seen a Dermatologist for what I now believe to have been Dermatitis Herpetiformis(the diag. was unexplained blistering rash) over the past several years. Since gluten-free I have not had DH for the first time in years. It is likely I have had Celiacs for a considerable time with moderate symptoms.

My wife cooks during the week and I cook on the week ends. We have simplified this considerable, but not to the point of just produce and meat or no processed foods. However, this may be what is necessary as suggested.

 

In the past 6 months there have been 3 occasions where  I have had wine with a dinner I or my wife prepared. My body reacted as if had consumed  large quantity's of gluten.  I had two glasses of wine which had absolutely no intoxicating effect. However, in each instance the symptoms lasted a week.

Hi Tbolt,

 

Six months is pretty early to be symptom free.  But that doesn't mean it isn't worth trying for! :)  A simple diet is very helpful at first.  No processed foods or only safe processed foods.  A few things I consider safe are Mission brand corn tortillas, Corn Thins,  Food Should Taste Good Chips (gluten-free).  Frozen foods are safer than canned foods often, and healthier too.  Look for foods with 3 or less ingredients on the label.  Organic and non-GMO foods are better if you can find them.

 

Adding some vitamin pills may help.   I think it is better to add individual vitamins rather than the kitchen sink type multi-vitamins.  B-vitamins are important for us.

 

I don't drink wine myself because I react to grapes.  Some people react to the sulfites in wines.  Red wines are generally more of problem for sulfites than white wines.

 

I've been experimenting with taking creatine lately myself.  So far it seems to help my energy level and my thinker thing.

yes - 'ibs' - here's a pill, eat more fiber (whole wheat!), you have a rash, here's some cream....  not to mention every other thing that was wrong and probably attributed to this sneaky disease!

 

i was already simplifying my diet trying to figure out what was killing me, but *bread* was never a suspect - innocent looking i guess lolz - so, making the shift to more unprocessed foods (just no gluten) was not too hard.  i still eat packaged bread and pasta, but almost everything else is from scratch.  

 

i find that alcohol is a whole different animal now that i am healing.  i find myself cutting it out more and more (and i likes my beer!) but it seems to be more of a nuisance than a treat lately.  i may change my mind later   <_<

Hello DC,

 

Thanks for the pointers. I take a Multi-Vitamin and a Probiotic, have seen others mention a digestive enzyme ?  I am eating more fruit than prior to my diagnosis but that is mostly mind over matter, not really enjoying it.  I like the Mission brand corn tortilla better than any of the gluten-free bread I have had.

I have noticed,even the certified gluten-free oatmeal gives me trouble. For the most part my diet consists of meat, rice, beans and eggs and various vegetable's.

I use cheese to add variety . I do eat gluten-free chips , pretzels and nuts for snacks.

I have given up on wine, red or white neither one works for me.

Hi.  I suggest that instead of going 98-99 % gluten free that you go 100% gluten free.  I am only 3 + months into this, but have noticed many symptoms go away and the "Mental Fog" go away.  One thing to consider...do you also drink/eat aspartame products.  Prior to my celiac diagosis, I went off of diet soda and that signficantly improved my mental clarity.  I would suggest that if you consume aspartame products.  It actually made a huge difference in my professional life, as while on diet soda, I was only working with 1/2 a brain.  If you are not on aspartame, then try 100% gluten-free, and perhaps go on a raw diet for a few weeks and see if it helps you get out of the funk.  Water, Water Water.  Good luck.

Just to clarify to someone who might read this:

Aspartame is gluten free.

Hello Ruth,

I believe you  misread my post. Like most folks, on occasion I have inadvertently eaten  "gluten", therefore not 100% gluten free.  I do not drink soft drinks diet or otherwise.

Hi Tbolt,

 

You are welcome for the pointers.  We all like to help each other out on the forum with getting started on the gluten-free diet.  It's something we all had to learn.

Digestive enzymes may help.  They are made by the pancreas and stomach.  But with celiac the digestive system is kind of thrown out of whack and some things may not work normally.  So a little digestive help can be beneficial.

 

Some people find Betaine HCL helpful.  It creates stomach acid.  There are many kinds of digestive enzymes on the market.  If you have a health food store near you it might help to ask them for recommendations.  Just be sure any pills you get are gluten-free.

 

Planters is a good company for nuts.  They will label any gluten.

 

I can't eat oats either, even the gluten-free certified ones.  They give me reactions just like gluten does.  Do you react to grapes or raisins?  Just curious, cause that would be a good thing to know.  Grape juice is used as a sweetner in some gluten-free products.

 

Veggies are great, but be sure to wash them before cooking.    Just a quick rinse can be helpful.  I rinse veggies before using them, even mushrooms.

Good Evening DC,

No problem with raisins, I cannot recall the last time I had a grape. I do eat the gluten-free trail mix sweetened with grape juice without a problem.

Hello notme,

There is something very sinister when something as wholesome as bread becomes poisonous. Certainly brings new meaning to " one man's meat is another man's poison. "

I am from the Chicagoland area where deep dish pizza is almost a religion. Nothing better to have an ice cold beer with....I understand your loss.

Many of us go into an exhaustion phase after going gluten-free. The whole dx of celiac is pretty shocking, the adjustment can be stressful (despite the rewards)...

Have you had vitamin/ mineral levels checked: iron, d, b's?

Have you been screened for other AI diseases like Hashimoto's thyroiditis?

For some reason, going gluten-free seems to resemble ripping the scab off a cut only to find its infected. Removing the scab was good - revealed the problem, but now the cut needs to be cleaned and treated to heal... Turns out to be an ugly process, pretty painful, and you discover there's more to it than just a cut with a scab.

My point is that since Celiac is an autoimmune disease, it's part of a bigger picture. It isn't just food, it isn't just isolated damage in your intestines. Your body has been under an attack EVERYWHERE.

Exhaustion is normal. You may have another condition to deal with. You may need vitamins. You may have an additional intoletance. You may be getting cc'd. You may just need time to heal.

I'd try slowing down in the jogging and see what happens. It may be too much right now. I'd ask for vitamin/mineral tests as well as thyroid testing. I'd double check all of my food, utensils, body care, meds for gluten, I'd keep a food diary. I'd read about other AI conditions and see if any ring a bell...you never know.

Hello w8in4dave,

I would encourage activity/exercise, going for walks if at all possible. Prior to my diagnosis, and when beginning the gluten free diet. I was exhausted ( still unusually tired) but I had a difficult time falling asleep, and only slept for a few hours. I never felt refreshed . As I  forced myself to get back to my exercise routine. I began to fall asleep quicker and stay asleep longer. Still not good in this aspect but better.

w8in4dave,

I certainly know the feeling, I actually felt worse, for a time , when I initially stopped eating gluten. I have been running for so many years it almost like a " compulsion " to continue.  It is great that you walk.

Ty :) I think it is great that you run!! I had surgery on my leg, it is crooked now! They told me I was lucky to walk let alone run!! Said I'd have a limp all my life! Well no limp , I go up and down stairs, They said I'd prob never be able to do that! Altho I cannot run I do walk , just to prove them wrong!! :) 

 

My oldest Daughter is a runner!! She loves it!! She just had a baby he just turned 3 months old!! She ran almost to the time of delivery , but not quite! Lol ....   she just started running again about a month ago!! It was hard for her to start again! But she has it again!! She is so happy now!! You remind me of her when you talk about running!! Great attitude keep it up!!

    • So I've been glutened....
      Hi JMG, Since it's easy, and always fun, I'd blame your sister. That's what I do.  But seriously, If it's an ongoing problem, rather than an isolated incident stick with your first guess.  Then test it.   So get rid of the oat bread or the sister (her food) or anything that is a consistent part of your diet and you suspect could be the problem.  Of course processed foods are the most likely issue always. It's easy enough to drop back to a very few foods for a few days and see if things improve.  Eating with celiac isn't about having the most exciting diet, it's about eating a medically safe diet.  So it can be boring sometimes.  That's ok, being in pain is exciting but not so fun.   Boring is fine. You might ask your sister what brands of flour she used, and other ingredients.  Then check on those products for possible gluten issues.  If they turn out to be possible problems, make a note of it so you can avoid them in the future. My own sister has been gluten-free for years but she has made me sick several times with her "creations".  It really is best to trust your own cooking and nobody else's for at least 6 months as you are getting used to the diet and healing.  Then slowly branch out and add things in maybe 1 new item in a week.  Slow and controlled diet changes are the way to go.  Boring but safe.  Happy but slow.    
    • So I've been glutened....
      Jmg I am sorry to hear you are unwell. You have been so kind and helpful to me on the boards here. You deserve the time to rant too.   Everyone's suggestion of probiotic is helpful. I have taken them since the 1990's in spurts as needed but was told by my DC after this March glutening I should take it daily "for life". My local store ran out, (I buy the type that must be refrigerated so the manufacturer does not ship direct to customer.) I was ok first day without it but by day 3 I knew I had to locate some for the probiotic/ enzyme blend was necessary for me. I have still not healed well enough yet to be without. As others said it could be cc from sis or the food  industry. Within the food industry even with parameters in place errors can be made- hopefully not too often.  Often rare though especially if not designated facility.  It is hard to know some days what it was. I do hope you get better soon. Yes I do think it can affect the brain/mood. Happens to me a large amount can be immediately,  but a smaller amount by day 2 after glutening. I want to ban gluten everywhere in my environments, unrealistic I know,  but have only been able to do that at home.  Be kind and patient with yourself at this time as you would tell me. ((((((Hug)))))
    • So I've been glutened....
      Yeah I did all the bone broths and sauerkraut after my challenge. Although I wasn't very good at making sauerkraut... Its summer here now so I've eased up on the bone boiling, plus my local butcher is struggling to obtain them. As you say healing to the point where microscopic cross contamination doesn't get you would be a big win.  I was ok with coffee until last few days. I drank decaff black and would have several cups a day without issue. I'll be gutted if I can't handle it any more. I hadn't realised you could get gluten-free miso soup. Will have to look for that    
    • So I've been glutened....
      Coffee is a no-no for me!  I actually gave up coffee since my diagnosis back on 2/2016.  I was diagnosed by a biopsy in the stomach...no villi.   Coffee is a stimulant to the GI system and it really irritates your GI when you are having a flare up.  I was tested by stools and was informed I barely had good bacteria in my gut which is typically for people with celiac. I went on a high dose of probiotic (just started) twice a day, multivitamin, lots of fermented vegetables like sauerkraut, kimchi, miso soup and tons of bone broth.  I am going to a local farm today to pick up organic bones to make my broth.  I am so desperate to heal my gut, not to introduce gluten but to be able to tolerate an exposure without being knocked out by it....Eat very light, I stick to vegetable juice, resistance starch food such as banana, apples, potatoes boiled until my diarrhea subsides.  I am currently in a flare up stage; did something and I have been glutened I am on day 7 and my symptoms peak after a few days, around day 4-5 and it last a few days of Diarrhea, nausea, sensation of feeling full, back pain in the rib cage on left side and hip/lower back pain on left side.  Its horrible!  I feel weak right now due to the diarrhea and since I am not hungry it makes it worse.  Hope this gets better.
    • DNA Testing
      I got the print out and took it to my new dr because what my RA was saying didn't seem to add up.  When I pressed him for more info, he said I didn't have any of the markers. Turns out he read the test wrong!  Since then, my new doc also questioned all my previous bloodwork and asked why I hadn't been told that my counts were really low or tested for ferritin levels. My ferritin was at 10, so, yeah, 4 other Dr's missed anemia on my labs. It's been frustrating to say the least, but I am finally feeling a little bit hopeful with my new primary doc. She's just referred me to a specialist focusing on celiac. Considering my former gp told me "that whole celiac thing is just a fad", I'm feeling a bit more secure.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
