Gluten Free For A Month And A Half, Casein Free For 2 Weeks...

Is it normal to still have the same bloating and cramping on a daily basis even after eliminating both gluten and casein? My diet consists of fruits, vegetables, chicken, occasionally turkey and fish and plenty of corn. Sometimes I eat nuts and seeds. How much of this is normal? My diarrhea went away almost immediately after eliminating gluten, but bloating and gas still. What's the deal here?

Maybe you are having a reaction to corn. I also have a problem with dairy and when I accidentally eat some, I get really bloated and have lots of gas that lasts for probably a week and a half to two weeks sometimes. The bloating and gas then goes away. Maybe the casein hasn't completely cleared out yet.

What form is your "plenty of corn" in? Some people have problems digesting whole corn kernals, but no problems with corn that's been mashed up. For instance, I can eat corn chips and corn tortillas til they come out my ears... but if I'm eating corn on the cob, I need to limit myself to 1 ear or I have problems. I think that it may have to do with how damaged our intestines are due to the gluten. Anything that is "difficult" to break down causes problems.

I realize that you're probably trying to use corn as your carbs, but you may want to eliminate the corn for a few days, try substituting rice or potatoes.

I eat a lot of Gluten Free tortilla chips, under the brand name "Go-Mex." I also eat pop corn, popped without oil and not buttered. I bread chicken and tilapia/haddock/halibut with corn flour once or twice a week. I do not eat a lot of corn on the cob or canned corn, because it tends to not feel so good.

I do eat a fair bit of rice and potatoes, too. I guess I forgot about them. Rice seems to be one of the few things I can eat any time without having some section of my digestive tract pissed off at me.

I have read a lot of postings about people having problems with fruit, the fruit sugar.

You might want to look it up on the internet. Bloating is one of the symptoms.

Also, many celiacs have problems with fiber (roughage) in the beginning of a gluten-free diet.

This is because the villi are damaged.

It is possible that it is just taking awhile to fully resolve. Remember it takes adults 1-2 years to heal after going gluten-free.

It is also possible that you have other food intolerances which is common for celiacs. For some these seem to eventually resolve. For others, they don't. It is very individual.

Your confusion is normal, we all have to feel our way along. Lots of people can relate.

I think you need to give casein free more time. Also, are you sure your gluten-free? New toaster, new pots and pans, dedicated toaster? If you do, ignore the suggestions, but just a thought.

Also, soy may be a problem.

I could do with a new set of pots and pans and I don't use the toaster at all. Thanks for the tip.

The issue with pots and pans is what kind do you have? It they have porous or scratched surfaces that gluten could stick to, you might be having a problem.

Also what about your personal care products?

Are others in your house eating gluten, if so what precautions are you taking?

    • Should I get tested for Celiac Disease?
      I wanted to come back and give an update. I decided to have my rash biopsied when I got home from vacation and the results thankfully came back positive for DH. What really prompted me to go ahead with that was how reliably the rash would worsen within mere hours of eating gluten. I figured it would be the easiest way for me to definitely know and since I could actually see the damage I was pretty confident by eating gluten until the appointment something would show up. Luckily my experiments of going multiple days here and there in the weeks prior to the test didn't effect the results. (Obviously that probably isn't recommended and I was taking a chance at inconclusive results by going ahead with it so I'm fortunate I got the positive results I expected.) The dermatologist wants me to see a GI doc but for now I'm holding off on doing that because of all the reasons I mentioned previously. It is my understanding that DH qualifies me for the tax write off for food and the small intestine biopsy would just be a technicality and see how much intestinal damage is present. I will follow up with my family doc soon to do blood work and check for any deficiencies. Since finding out I've done pretty well. I did discover gluten in my shampoo after wondering why my elbows had flared up when I hadn't eaten gluten that day. I had gluten unintentionally this weekend in some sushi and I'm recovering from that at the moment but it hasn't been too bad compared to how I've felt most days for the last year and a half while eating it. I did connect with a lady in my ED recovery group who has celiac and we have been talking about navigating gluten free in the context of recovery/remission from anorexia. I think part of me was scared I'd become afraid of food again but I think as long as my only rule is to replace gluten I will be fine.  Now my latest gluten discovery is in my home hair color. I was about to color my grays when I read the label and noticed one ingredient was wheat gluten. I guess I'll exchange that for something different. If I was getting it done at a salon I probably wouldn't worry because of the way they rinse it out with your head tipped back in the bowl but at home I think it's harder to keep the water from running into my mouth accidentally. If I hadn't had the shampoo incident I probably wouldn't be so cautious. I'm sure some people can relate to trying to get well and not wanting to make things worse again! I hope everyone here is doing well!
    • Can U A Bone Marrow Donor?
      Another reply to an old thread. We have a family friend whose son (aged 4) is struggling with leukemia. I went through the initial process (online screening question/answer form) of donating bone marrow, but was immediately rejected by the automatic screening due to my Celiac Disease. 
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      It can be difficult to refuse food from others but, with time, you can learn to not let it bother you.  Yeah, easier said than done, I know.  But your sense of humor came through in places in your post so use that to make "empowered no BS responses"!  
    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      This is a common sense answer!  I used to eat Godiva years ago and was dismayed they had no interest in appealing to anyone with a food allergy/intolerance.  That's OK......Ghirardelli chocolates are very good about divulging what they do and most of their chocolates are gluten-free.  Again, you have to understand label reading and investigate further, if need be.  Turns out, I think their chocolates are just as good, if not better.
    • Children and Gluten Freedom
      How do you know when your child has gluten sensitivity, gluten intolerance, or celiac disease? If gluten issues run in your family and you know there is a predisposition to having problems with gluten in foods, then you may be alert to signs that it has been passed on to your child.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
