10 posts in this topic

Last night i had a quite a few plums and felt bloated for 3 hours, now i had only 3 with some spaghetti sauce and my COLON get bloated, what the hell?

 

Also, can fruits get cross contamination too and how common is it if yes.

 

This really suck, about a week ago i was finally getting better, more energy no more bloating, could drink milk, last night i had a chocolate bar and had every symptom of being lactose intolerant, it also feel I am having harder time with coffee now, and still no FREAKING energy, I had cut corn since today and replaced it with VEGGIES VEGGIES FRUITS FRUITS beef and eeg still feel like crap.

 

How long does this has to go for before I can do a normal day? I sleep 10 hours now and even 2 days ago I slept 14 and was totally drained.

Were you used to eating a lot of fruits and veggies before you went gluten free? If you are eating a lot more raw fruits and veggies suddenly that can cause bloating. Early on it seems anything can for some of us. It takes a while to heal and some find it helpful to go with well cooked fruits and veggies and mild foods for a bit. You may also be reacting to the milk. It might be a good idea to go with a safe milk alternative for a bit.

It takes time to heal so hang in there.

Some extra protein might help with the energy, having hard boiled eggs in the fridge can be helpful

Sounds like time to check in with your doctor then, probably OK, but maybe not worth risking

It could just be the fruit. I know a few fruits bother me, apples and pears make me quite bloated and crampy... No idea why.

How long have you been gluten free? For many of us going gluten-free means a complete change of what we eat, meaning that you've changed the type of fuel your body is used to, and it might require some time to get used to it. Withdrawal is always tough. 

I remember when I used to go through cleansing diets. The first days would be the toughest. I'd be so tired and out of energy, until the body gets used to it, then things go back to normal. Changing to a gluten-free diet is a lot more intense than a simple cleansing diet.

 

If the fruit is washed properly then you can't get cc from it. 

But don't blame everything on CC. The intestines can get agitated, upset or bloated from many things and not just gluten.

When I went to the gastroenterologist, he thought maybe my symptoms might be IBS. (I know they are from gluten). Anyway, he suggested I look up the FODMAP diet. This may be of use to you. There are suggestions of certain foods to avoid: gluten, dairy, honey, some fruits, etc.

A couple months ago i got candida, which is a yeast infection. And doctors couldnt explain why i getting that, because that happens to low immune systems, which im suspecting celiac. But candida causes bloating, difficulty swallowing, white spots in mouth, and they feed off of sugar and carbs. Before going glutenfree i was having recurrent candida. Im just making a suggestion, u should research it.

    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hi everyone.  There is a lot in the press here in the UK about prediabetes and diabetes.  I am an apple shape, as opposed to a pear, which I gather puts me more at risk.  I have a lot of relatives with types 1 and 2 diabetes.  I was diagnosed with celiac disease three years ago and the diet has been going so well that I am now putting on weight - I realise I have been eating far too many nice goodies from the Gluten Free Cake Aisle at Marks & Spencers, etc.   I had a bit of a shock this week as I have been very thirsty and as per usual started panicking so instead of doing that my neighbour encouraged me to see my doctor.  Good plan. The preliminary tests show no sugar in my urine; my blood glucose was high normal but I had just eaten.  She is sending me off for one of those HbaIC tests I think it is called just to be sure but she says she thinks I will be fine.  But to cut a long story short, I realise I have got to sort out this sweet tooth of mine. Wake up time! But I am confused. I have been searching a lot on line and there seems to be such contradictory information.  Only this week there was a news item on the BBC about the argument for fewer carbs/full fat - and then Public Health England disputing it.  Then, to go back to the original argument, the BBC filmed a chap at the doctors who had cut his carbs and ate full fat (as well as healthy fruit & veg) and he had lost weight and come off his diabetes meds. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-36345768 I'm thinking prevention is better than cure so I wanted to know, can anyone recommend a website or book that sets out a sensible eating plan, tried and tested, that they have discovered.    Or just any tips?  And I should say - I do get hungry between meals and for many years have suffered from the shakes when I don't eat enough - what is good food to eat for snacking?
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      I am in same boat, yesterday my stomach was churning and bloated and I don't know what the cause was.  How about keeping a food diary? Just note what you ate and how you feel. A few days may be sufficient to discern a pattern, either some rogue product or a previously unknown intolerance. I have read that after gluten is removed further intolerances which were hidden can become apparent.  I don't know whether you could cut yourself some slack from a full vegan approach whilst your body heals? If not, maybe you could substitute say milk with coconut milk or similar to give your body a break whilst keeping calcium levels high? If you join coeliac uk you can check your sauces etc on their gluten-free database, they'll also send you a book which became my bible until I got a hang of which brands I could eat safely. Finally, have you excluded cross contamination from pots and pans, toasters, shared condiments etc?  Good luck!
    • Blood results - odd
      My results were similar – Low ferritin but normal B12. Although my ferritin levels were low, my Iron serum levels were normal. So might be worth getting your iron levels checked out to see if you have any deficiency in Iron. Also I was deficient in Vitamin D, which is perhaps more of a problem in England rather than the US - Our milk isn’t supplemented with vit D and we obviously have less sunshine.
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
