"losing Wieght" Eating More
Posted 10 May 2008 - 07:51 PM
I"ve been having some wierd feelings in my stomach lately, almost like a burning, but not heart burn type. Its definitly not painful but I notice it off and on and I sometimes feel naucious or extremely hungry even though I ate plenty throughout the day making sure i have plenty of protien and healthy fats and balance of carbs. I also get even more dizzy than normal when I stand up, its to the point where its very annoying!!!!
I was wondering if these symptoms may be the sign of an ulcer? I"ve heard that people with celiacs are at risk for ulcers. I have not seen a doctor in a long time and have not been diagnosed with anything yet. Is wieght loss or possibly a "mal- nourished" look also a side effect of an ulcer? and I was wondering what causes ulcers in someone with celiacs? I thought maybe since the small intestine cant break food down properly that this would cause the stomach to work harder/possibly producing more H Pylori??? I'm seeing a doc soon, I just have all this stuff running through my head b/c I just dont feel right, even though the majority of my major problems are gone when gluten free....this seems like an endless battle....

Symptoms lasted three months before going gluten-free- weight loss, D, extreme irritability, skin problems.

12/06 Started gluten-free diet.
1/07 Canceled biopsy (symptoms were gone and I was finally gaining weight- 10 pounds in six weeks).
9/07 I've gained 20 pounds. Yeah!
9/08 Youngest daughter diagnosed with Celiac Disease. (D eliminated, behavior improved, schoolwork improved.)

Of course, the first question everyone asks on this forum is are you sure you're 100% gluten-free?
I am sure. I've been eating only products produced in dedicated factories....the only thing that I could think of is my mouthwash. Its and off brand whitening pre-rinse by CareOne, but I didnt see any ingredients that could possibly have gluten...

There's a thread about constant hunger in the "coping with" section right now. It's also quite common in the beginning of the diet. You might just have to eat more often for a couple of months until your body starts to heal. Not necessarily big meals but spread your eating over the day every couple hours or so.
When I was still eating gluten I used to always feel a bit full but it was actually from the bloating. When that went away I had to get used to a totally different feeling of hunger. So that also could be what you're feeling. If that's the case I think things will even out in a few months time.
