Gluten Free 5 Weeks Some Symptoms Getting Worse
Posted 08 July 2014 - 03:27 PM
This is old but I know when people google these or search the forums there aren't always follow ups when the problem was solved. We solved my problem, it was not crohn's or hidden gluten, I have fructose malabsorbsion as well as bit of a sorbitol intolerance. Ironically I figured it out at the gluten free expo because most of the samples were sweetend with HFCS or Fruit Juice and it left me sick as hell since I wasn't eating processed food the samples wreaked havoc on my insides even more so than day to day eating. I met with my celiac specialist GI shortly after and she confirmed it. At 4 months post diagnosis my ttg IgA went down and was a weak positive and both DGP's went back to normal/negative so I am following the gluten-free diet carefully. It is not SIBO it's just fructose malabsorbtion. So I am now Gluten free, dairy free, very low fructose/fructans, low sorbitol/polyols. Within 24 hours of going fructose and sorbitol free in addition to gluten free and dairy free I was feeling like a new person. Thank you for all of the advice here. Hopefully if anyone pulls this up with the same situation this info can help them.

Thanks for the update.
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile
My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free
Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS
Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.
