Its been 4 months and i have been feeling really bad after i eat. I get dizzy and tired after lunch and especially after dinner. Is this part of Celiac or some other issue. I have had my blood sugar checked before and after eating and it is always perfect, I also had my eyes checked to see if they were fine and all is good there. Im confused?????

What are you eating? Are you also cooking for gluten eaters? Does this happen everywhere or only at home? Do you eat out a lot? Do you eat a lot of mainstream supposedly gluten free food like for example doritos or corn chips? You are early in on the diet, have you cut out dairy products, all dairy not just lactose? Have you been checked for casein intolerance? What you are experienceing after eating sounds like a gluten reaction, have you deglutened your house, your hand lotions, your soaps, your pet foods, your can opener?

Thats your answer. You don't need to yell at me again. Many of us take a long time to realize how gluten free we really aren't. I was trying to help you. Don't worry it will not happen again.

this exact same thing has been happening to me! it is so frustrating. my doctor told me it was possibly reactive hypoglycemia, but she wasn't sure. my glucose tests are always very normal. the only way i have found to get rid of it is if i cut out all carbs and starches. i eat meat and veggies, that's about it. i am down to 105 lbs. though which sucks - i would love to gain some weight back. the doc said it could be temporary since our bodies are shocked by the sudden change in diet.

i really feel for you, i know how crappy this is.

Its tough to work after i eat lunch. I have lost 15 lbs in 4 months, and i wasnt fat before. Maybe as we heal it will get less severe. Let me know if you get better.

I believe that Ravenwoodglass was sincerely trying to help you by asking questions off the top of her head that we all needed to ask ourselves early on in the diet. :)

I know that I developed additional food intolerances after I went gluten-free. There is soy in some of the foods you eat every day. My suggestion would be to go back to just the natural, whole foods and when you (hopefully) feel better, try adding the other foods one at a time.

Did you notice any difference in the way you felt when you first went gluten-free? I ask because if you felt better at first, but then began to get these symptoms lately, it could very well be another intolerance.

yeah, i have the same problem with trying to work after eating lunch and feeling so lousy and dizzy. i did talk to another woman who had something very similar and she got better after one year. she ate pretty much meat and veggies for a year and then it finally turned around. she thought it was due to something related to the liver. a year sure seems like a long time, though, with everyday being so hard.

please let me know if you find anything that helps, too.

It seems like all of us have more than one issue going on at once. I have been meaning to post something but have been putting it off. I get really confused with a lot of my issues sometimes, but I just had to respond to this thread. I have been dealing with problems for over 10 years now and have never been diagnosed with celiac but I KNOW there is a problem with gluten. I also have a problem with my thyroid and a dairy allergy. I just recently went to the doctor again (I had given up for over 6 years) and am about to run more tests. My new doctor is going to do a test for stomach emptying because I have nausea and bloating and burping after meals. He is looking into gatroparesis which I guess is a slow stomach emptying. I've been doing research and for the last week I have been eating more frequent and smaller meals and have been careful not to each too much fat. I also have been being careful about not eating ANY dairy. And I have really started to feel much better. It just seems that it's never just celiac alone. There are other issues that need to be dealt with as well. So look into other intolerances/allergies. When I was feeling sorry for myself about having to deal with such a limited diet I would cheat and eat dairy and ended up feeling bad for it. Unfortunately, by the time we all realize that celiac is the problem, there are other issues that must be dealt with. Also, since I stopped eating all dairy, I can smell again, and I don't wake up with all this mucus. And I am much more depressed about giving up dairy than I am giving up gluten.

My reply to Ravenwood came off rude, but wasnt intended to be. Sometimes things sound different whe you read them than when you are writing (no body language or tone of voice) I sent her a message expaining the confusion. Ireally appreciate everyones help. I would be lost without you guys. Thanks. How do i get tested for other food allergies. Anything besides enterolab? I dont a lot of cash right now.

I understand how that can happen, and I'm glad you contacted her :)

True allergies need to be tested by an allergist. They use skin-prick or blood tests.

For intolerances, the best way to test is by elimination diet. Some of the more common foods to suspect are dairy, soy, and corn. I would start there, unless you have another food that you suspect.

Take your diet down to the foods you know are ok--things like meats, fruits, veggies, potatoes, olive oil, etc. These are not written in stone, it's what agrees with you. Don't include packaged foods or things with lots of ingredients.

Every 5 days, introduce a suspect food. See if over the next few days you have any sort of reaction. It's helpful to keep a food log to keep track of what you ate and how you felt.

It could be a migraine. I get a lot of pressure behind my eyes after I eat certain things...I suspect, for me, it could be msg and/or sulphite intolerance (or intolerance to other foods?)Kinnikinnick Wolfsbrand almond cookies give me an instant headache along with bloating...because they are made with pea protein and starch, that's likely one of my triggers. I also sometimes get a migraine from exposure to bright, flourescent lighting or a combination of hot temperature, bright light and motion (part of my motion sickness.)

Just a suggestion...

You can start by cutting out the soy milk and replacing it with rice milk. Might help, might not...just an idea.

You can also check the ingredients of the bolded items for things that might bother you, and maybe you'll see a pattern or an ingredient to question (it is also important to note that all Kraft products contain msg, even if it is not on the label). Preservatives and artificial addatives in those products make me feel bloated and fatigued, so I like to make that suggestion, but I realize some people are just lucky and don't react to those kinds of processed foods.

I hope you find the answer soon! :)
