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! :)

How about eating your salad with a home made dressing, at least for a few days? I usually sprinkle some olive oil, lemon juice, salt and herbs on my salad. I'm sure other people have more recipes for different types of dressing. That way you avoid all the additives and stuff that bought dressings always seem to have.

I don't know, sorry. I'm casein intolerant - hopefully someone else will chime in and let you know.

You could make it from scratch. A google search came up with many recipes. I've always had luck with Canadian Living for great tasting recipes: http://www.canadianliving.com

This has been happening to me for the past few weeks. I'm a self-diagnosed celiac. It's been 1 1/2 yrs. My life has drastically changed yet as of January I have felt my best. So, I think my villi are healed. But now I'm dealing with this nausea thing and my doctor also mentioned the hypoglycemia. But I never heard of reactive hypoglycemia like the other post said. Maybe that's it. But for me, I hate the nausea. I rarely get the dizziness unless I have eaten something made in a wheat facility so I try to avoid that. And I noticed that sometimes things claim to be gluten-free but maybe they are only gluten-free when you eat just the recommended serving. (LIke gummy bears that I buy at Walmart - if I eat too many, I'll crash - even though they claim gluten-free.) <_<

    • Celiac - Not yet diagnosed but feel like I'm dying.
      Hi Dylan I just wanted to join SLLRunner in welcoming you to the forum and yes, do ask to be tested for Celiac and Chrons. My nutritionalist told me that celiac disease is a great mimicker of many illnesses which I think must make a doctor's job all the harder when it comes to diagnosis.  For many of us it took us  a long time to get a diagnosis - for about eight years before my own diagnosis I had ulcers,  odd migraines and hallucinations on waking, anxiety, elevated blood protein but no obvious cause for it, anemia, numb hands and arms in the mornings, and eventually the abdominal pain and severe diarrhea. It was all scary stuff but  it was only when I got the last two symptoms, for six weeks, that I was tested for celiac disease (for the protocol here in the UK is that if you have a new gastric symptom for more than six weeks you should have further investigations).  I still wonder if I hadn't had that gastric pain and diarrhea whether my doctors would have even thought it was celiac related? After all you have been through it is not surprising that you are feeling depressed.  A lot of people feel very depressed and anxious before their diagnosis.  You are doing the right thing seeing a new doctor, and hopefully you are just around the corner from getting some long awaited answers.   Keep us posted.  You will find  some great advice here and support during your journey.  All the very best.

      This forum post came up when I Google searched Kirkland Dish Soap. I called them today and they said there is no gluten in the dish soap. Janis 
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      In light of the studies that found some probiotics that are labeled gluten-free yet tested over 20ppm I wouldn't touch them. Now those would be the powder or pill forms. Yogurt is not affected by that. Since you don't have a problem with dairy then I would say eat some yogurt every day. I like Chobani Greek because it has more kinds of cultures. Remember now that powder or pill forms of probiotics do not come under the gluten-free labeling law. The same for OTC & prescription meds. You need to check every single one of those. There are a few online sites where you can check things like that or ask here but as far as prescription meds -- call the manufacturer EVERY TIME. I also wanted to tell you in case you didn't already know that since celiac is genetic and can present at ANY age then all your first degree relatives need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms and immediately if symptoms present between the 2 year periods. As far as the digestive enzymes go, I tried Digest Gold for a short time & it really didn't seem to do anything for me however I will say I had a lot of issues going on at the time so I might not know if they helped or not. I decided to quit them in order to take that out of the equation so I could try to pin down what was causing me distress. The fewer things in the mix you know. I have heard people report the same as your consultant said. Some say they helped & some say they didn't. Remember Jammy, you're just in the beginning stages. I KNOW you want to heal & heal FAST. Been there, done that! It's like this: you didn't get sick overnight & you're not going to heal overnight. Patience is the watchword here. It's hard I know! You just want to get on with your life. We can all relate.  Again, I'm going to say to eat foods easy on your gut. WELL cooked foods. No raw carrots, coconut, nuts & stuff like that. Easier on your gut would be nut butters.... peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter etc.... It's sort of like being a baby ---  soft, easy to digest foods. Bone broth is a great healer for you gut & extremely nutritious as well as being easy on the digestion. Here's just one recipe: http://wellnessmama.com/5888/how-to-make-bone-broth/
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Thanks for the tip! Will try that out in the next few days. By the way, has anyone had any joy with probiotics or digestive enzymes in terms of symptom relief/speeding up the healing process? I asked my consultant about this when I saw him last week and he said that some people find them beneficial while others don't, but obviously I'm keen to try anything that may help, with uncomfortable fullness/bloating/gas still being my main issue  - is it worth giving them a go?
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      I realize that this is an old thread but I would just like to say something about label reading. Just because a product says gluten free on the label doesn't mean that you don't have to read any further and can have complete trust in the product.  There are a lot of products that state that they are gluten free on the package and then you find out that they are processed in plants that also produce wheat products. If you are super sensitive, you need to know that information. I am afraid that there is no escaping reading labels in supermarkets unless you know that the company makes it's products in a truly gluten free environment (even then you should read labels because ingredients can and do change, even in products made in gluten free facilities), It's a pain to stand there and read labels but if you are super sensitive, you might just have to do that. For example, I am gluten and lactose intolerant but also sensitive to nuts and sesame. While it may be fine for other gluten intolerant people to eat something that's labeled gluten free which is produced in a gluten free facility that also processes nuts, for me it is not..

      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.
