Problems Getting Worse Since Gf
Posted 28 May 2004 - 06:37 AM
Anyway, I never ate gluten-free, because I had no obvious stomach problems. Now that I am adhering to a gluten-free diet, I seem to have nothing but problems! My dietician wants me to take several digestive enzymes such as Pro- Biotic and Digest - a lot. She also wants me to take Ultra lactaid when I eat lactose products and Preleif when I eat acidy foods. Al these supplements plus all the gluten-free products are expensive!
WHy would my tummy be so sensitive now that I am gluten-free? Is that a good thing that means I am actually digesting my food now and something that will resolve itself or is it something that will get worse. ?

If you continue to have problems for a long time and an elimination diet doesn't point to anything specific, I would suggest you go to the doctor and see if something else is bothering you. Colitis (inflamation in the colon) is quite common in Celiacs, as well as a whole ton of other diseases and disorders. You should continue the gluten-free diet , regardless. It will help you avoid further complications, such as more damage to your intestine, developing other auto-immune diseases, and intestinal cancer.
I have an article about allergies and intolerances that I posted. You can find it by using this link or looking in the "Publications & Publicity" forum. http://www.glutenfre...&st=0#entry8970
I hope you are able to start feeling better. The diet is harder to stick with if you are not experiencing symptoms relief. It also must be very frustrating to feel worse on the diet. There are a few others here at this message board that have experienced something similar when starting the diet. Hopefully they can give you some advice as well.

I am doing pretty good avoiding gluten. My only problem is that my DH and I like to go out to eat alot. He gets mad when I start asking a lot of questions about how the food is prepared. It is really hard because I feel like the only thing I can safely eat are salads and even then, I do not know if the dressing is safe. Last night, I went to a Mexican restaurant. I ate the corn chips and then I was thinking I should have asked if they have flour in them since they make them right at the restaurant. I ordered vegtable fahitas minus the tortillas. I asked the waitress if there was any wheat or grain and she said no but she was a college kid. I felt find afterwards other than feeling really full from eating too much.
