My Big Belly.....

4 posts in this topic

I was going to the store today and I was drinking a "Just Black Cherry" Juice :) As I glanced down to grab the juice from between my legs, I mean Drink carrier  <_< my thought is "It's gone" Not my juice :P but my big belly is gone!! I know I have lost 30 lbs. But I actually am starting to look normal now  :D  I just didn't realize it was all gluten in  that belly. Being Bloated , full of gas and swollen. I am now wearing shirts I have not worn in 5 years (Yes I kept them) I am giving away my 2xl's and wearing Lg ... It is amazing!! :) Too bad my energy doesn't match my body ? W8 did that make sense?  B)

I think it is to :) Well I have been trying to go for walks at least every other day. It is hard right now with Ragweed everywhere (me and my allergies) And we live out between two big fields , that are planted in soybeans but the edges are full of Ragweed.. I walk down the lane and both sides ....ragweed.... So I have to do it on a clear day. I havn't been this size in a while. If I can lose a few more I will be happy :) I am kida scared .... I was skinny my whole life. I mean too skinny! everyone thought I had an eating disorder. I didn't and don't, but with the way I am losing weight. I hope i don't lose too much. If so I guess I up the rice huh?

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
