Both Celiac/gluten Intolerance And Ibs Or Leaky Gut?

6 posts in this topic

After my inconclusive celiac test, I desied to go totally glutenfree. That worked wonders, and for a month I felt better hvat ever. Then out of the blue, eggs started giving me the same symptoms as gluten did. So I stopped having eggs. Then oats startet making me vomit and soy gave me stomace ace. So I stopped having that as well. Now, someting is slightly upsetting my stomace again, and I can't figure out what. It's not bad now, but I have loos stools and some gas, but the joint pain, anxiety, hormone problems and so on are all pretty much gone.

Why do I keep getting all these intoleranses? Is there anything I can do to keep from getting any more or even get some of the foods back? Could this be IBS or leaky gut in addition to celiac/glutenintolerance? If so, how can I know which one? Is there anything to be done about IBs or leaky gut?

I am so feed up with this crap, and doctors dosen't seem to be intrested if its not something they can test for...

Try rotating your foods.  Per my doctor, it helps prevent/slow future allergies/intolerances from developing.  At least until your system calms down.  I did a four day rotation years ago when my allergies and intolerances were identified.  I managed to do it for about 8 months to a year.  It was worth it.  I got healthy, had a baby and years later while going through menopause I developed celiac disease!  


It might work for you.

How do I do that? (I know, I could google it and spend the night reading articles on food rotation, but I really don't feel up to it...)

Daughter and I have food intolerances and they do keep changing.  Alas for me, they just keep getting more and more.  For her they are lessening!  But we were told by a Dr. never to eat the same thing two days in a row and preferably not the same things more than twice a week.  That makes it insanely hard for us to eat!  I also have gastroparesis so that further limits what I can eat.


But the weird thing for me is that the new intolerances for me were not even things I ate a lot of.  Like oats.  I used gluten-free oats in meatloaf.  I made this perhaps twice a year.  I did make a lot at once so enough for at least three meals.  And a few times a year I made an apple crisp.  That was it for me and oats and yet, now if I eat them, I itch all over and get sick to my stomach.


The best thing to do is to get some sort of notebook, or I suppose you could do this on your computer if you wanted to.  Make a list of what you ate each day and your reaction (if any).  This may help you to determine what is causing your problem.  Or not, if it is more than one thing.


You should also try to plan your meals in advance so that you are not eating the same thing too often.  And remember that your problem food could be one that you never thought of!  I can't have chicken, lamb, or any kind of fish or seafood.  And what was I eating when my stomach was upset?  Chicken broth with a little rice in it.  No wonder it wasn't making me feel better.  I have switched to vegetable broth and have no problems with that.

Thank you! I did some rotation diet-googleing afterall, and it seemd very overwhelming, but the way you put it it seems alot more do-able :)

That is strange, with your intoleranse to oats...!


Do you know how your daughter went about to reintroduce the foods? And did she do something first, like a month of probiotics og some suplements or wait a really long time or something?

It's not hard.  Make a list of all the things you can safely eat.  Or....(thinking) put each food on a 5 x 7 card and then group them into four columns on your kitchen table.  Group items you like together.  Make a list.  Post in in your kitchen, carry it in your purse, etc.  Here's a sample:


Day 1 -- beef, potatoes, green beans, lettuce, tomato, pears, cantaloupe, oranges, almonds, peas

Day 2 -- pork, apples (applesauce!), sweet potatoes, cabbage, apricots, pineapple, eggs, peanuts, 

Day 3 -- fish, rice, broccoli, bell peppers, kale, zucchini, strawberries, plums, grapes/raisins, kidney beans

Day 4 -- chicken, butternut squash, corn, kiwi, turnips, dates, taro root, mango, walnuts, sunflower seeds, 


I think you get the picture.  I started my "day" in the evening. Then I had my dinner for my breakfast or lunch the next day.    Stick to whole foods and you can expand:  pork = bacon, ham, etc.  But in the beginning stick with more simple less processed foods (save the bacon on pork days in a month or two).  Think out-side-the-box for breakfast. 


I ended up eating tons of what I once thought were "weird" foods.  It was pretty fun going into ethnic markets and trying new veggies.  Later you might find that you should group food families together (e.g. tomatoes, peppers, potatoes).  But just start taking baby steps for now.  


Going on a rotational diet (even with cheating) did help calm down my "fire" (inflammation) and helped my recovery.  I had twelve more years of good health (triathlons and even a baby) before old menopause caught up with me and possibly triggered my celiac disease. 


Keep a food journal and record any reactions (remember, many are delayed up to 48 hours).


Hang in there!

    • Washing Dishes
      Gluten is a very sticky protein that cannot be removed easily. Non porous items can be washed safely and effectively, being very careful to throughly rinse, use a dedicated sponge/washcloth to wash. If washed by hand wash and rinse under hot running water not in a sink of water if you don't have a dedicated gluten free kitchen. My kitchen is totally gluten free and I still rinse under running water. I attempted to use the dishwasher for the first time yesterday and I feel like I've been glutened so I'm not sure if it's safe or not. There was no gluten containing dishes in it, but it's a rental house so God knows how the previous tenants used it and whether there may be any lingering gluten in it. I also have other issues that cause a lot of the same problems so I'm going to keep trying to use it for a few days and see if I continue to feel glutened or not. As far as counter tops, sinks etc, any non porous surfaces can be wiped clean, but it takes multiple wipe downs with multiple sponges. Thoroughly wipe down and rinse out the sink to rid it off any lose gluten particles. The same thing I did when first going gluten free. Only the kitchen I had then had laminated counter tops that were all scratched up. There is no getting gluten out of those kind of counter tops or cracks around the sink, etc. The ONLY way to possibly destroy/remove gluten from surfaces it's stuck in is to heat it above temperatures most things cannot tolerate and not all ovens can reach. You're looking at like 600°-700° F for a minimum of 30 min. So some stuff can be effectively cleaned in the self cleaning mode of an oven if it has one. Most cookware and utensils cannot tolerate those temperatures though and it's impossible to heat counters and other items to that temperature. Therefore being in a blended house is very risky if not done right. When I went gluten free everyone in my house went gluten free. Except the fish, you can't find gluten free fish food. My husband who shouldn't eat gluten anyway is gluten free and all our animals are on a grain free diet. Even my snake is gluten free since I breed my own feeder mice and feed them a gluten free organic diet. 
    • to biopsy or not?
      A small suggestion........for banana bread, try the King Arthur gluten free banana bread mix.  Yeah, I's a mix but sometimes, time is short and a mix works well.  My husband and I were shocked at how good this is!  it rose up high and beautiful in the oven and has a really good banana flavor to it.  Really....give it a try.  It is so easy to make also!   The ATK cookbook is a keeper for every Celiac!
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      Yup.....what she said!  In non-porous materials such as stainless steel or aluminum pans, a good washing is all you need to make the pan safe to use.
    • Hawaiian-style BBQ Shrimp (Gluten-Free)
      Mayonnaise is the key to this recipe, which delivers tasty, tangy, golden grilled shrimp. View the full article
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      I wouldn't be afraid to use a stainless steel pot that other things had been cooked in AS LONG AS YOU WASH THEM VERY WELL before making her food.

      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. Thank You,
