Anyone Have Severe Digestion Problems?
0

5 posts in this topic

HI,

I have celiac and am experiencing many allergies. I have some severe problems with digestion. Everything i eat from salad to oranges, comes out in my stool in pristine condition. I feel hungry all the time but my body is holding all my food so that I am constipated, like all the food is too big and undigested to get it out.

My digestion is messed up, my elimination and my weight are messed up, I am totally depressed and my university plans are going out the window>

Please help with your suggestions.

I am sorry you continue to have problems. I suggest you see a GI specialist and tell them whats going on. I have the same problem with some food (nuts. salads, fruit) and for now I just avoid those foods. ;)

I hope you get things sorted out soon, please let us know how you are getting along.

I would tell your doctor for sure because you need to get you digestive system digesting again! He/She may do something to help.

Digestive enzymes may help, I don't know a lot about them but they may aid in your digesting.

You need to get to a dr so that you can get help with your digestion. You need to eat and digest properly so that you can be healthy. You don't want to have more problems.

I just got diagnosed with osteoporosis at 45. I have already more than 10% bone loss in my hips. Not good news especially since I am not that old.

Try to get someone to ehlp you with this now.

Definitely talk to your doctor! You might also try pureed food, maybe the liquified state of it will help. Digestive enzymes are the next thing to try. Good luck!

What college/university are you looking at? Any particular course of study?

    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
    • I checked the Gluten Free Watchdog (I subscribe) and did not find this  particular product, but found the company's oat bran flakes which did not list any gluten ingrediants, but barley was found in testing well over 20 parts per million.  I would stick with certified gluten-free cereals, personally.  I think it is "hit or miss" on grain products.    
    • It is normal for other intolerances to become apparent once you remove gluten. I don't know why, perhaps as the immune system is free'd from chasing gluten it finds new targets? A lot of coeliacs find they have to cut out dairy as well for example. It's certainly my number one culprit for skin issues.  It also can take time for removing gluten to have its full effect, as antibodies will remain in the body for up to 6 months. So the reaction could still be to gluten in a way. 
    • I did not re-test my antibodies for a full year after diagnosis but I think your daughter should be checked again in 6 months.  If she does have celiac, and I really am sure she does regardless of what this doc seems to think, they should decrease in 6 months.  If she is fast healer, they could potentially be in the normal range but it varies from person to person. She did show damage in her small intestine but at 4 years of age, damage would not have progressed to the point where this doctor could be convinced it is Celiac.  They set the bar way too high. Kind of silly to require you to damage her insides further to prove it to the AMA. I think she should go gluten-free, as you have stated, and re-scope her in 6 months to see how the original damage looks then. If it is gone, then maybe that would convince them. The 4 out 5 criteria is not done in kids because, I am convinced, of liability issues. They just do not want to get sued if by some small chance, they diagnosed someone who did not have Celiac.  I think the odds of that are pretty slim, when you think about it. Even with a misdiagnosis, eating gluten free will never harm anyone. But as children are minors and cannot legally make medical decisions on their own like adults can, that rule is out for them.
