4 posts in this topic

Havent been on the gluten-free diet that long-but have noticed an extreme change. it used to be whenever i ate; i felt sick. i have dropped from 160 to 130 in a short amount of time. does anyone know when and if i can put weight on? any ideas how to do this? i take vitamins and glutamine. just wanting to add a little weight. also, i am constantly hungry on gluten-free diet. sometimes wake up in the morning literally starving? anyone know why? i have only had two incidents in the past month where i have had a "belly blowout" or celiac bowel episode and that was when i ate out at a fish restaurant. Was grilled cod supposedly in lemon butter only-obviously not.

Whole brown rice is the perfect food for people with celiac disease. It digests slowly, so you avoid a hypoglycemic reaction, it fills you up, so you avoid feeling hungry, and it is nutritious. Combine it with some fresh meat, and vegetables and you have a perfect meal. Just look at the billions of people who live on these types of foods, and compare them to the people who live on wheat.

One bit of advice. Do not use instant rice. I have had bad reactions to it, and suspect there is gluten in it. According to one article I read, up to 20% of foods called

Not sure how long you've been gluten-free but if it's only for a month it will take more time. You will feel hungry a lot because now you actually feel like eating and your body is craving the nutrients you weren't getting. My doctor had me eating lots of protein -- think meat -- with every meal. I had dropped from 155 to 135. Because I kept pigging out and not exercising I eventually gained 70 pounds -- way too much. I've dropped 30 of that in about three months and want to lose 10 more.

I would also agree that for now you don't want to be eating at restaurants. Later, after you've healed, you could venture out to some local places with chefs or owners you can talk to. Eating out is risky but I've found impossible to live a nearly normal life without doing it every now and then.

    • 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.
