0

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.

    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
