Newly Diagnosed And A Sudden Relapse Of Symptoms
0

7 posts in this topic

Was diagnosed with celiac disease only two months ago and from that date undertook a completely gluten free diet. My most severe symptom before this was extreme bloating (looking 7 months pregnant) and a lot of pain. Within 3 days of going gluten free my stomach had ease and was going down :lol:

However - only last week suddenly overnight my stomach blew up again - and I am now completely unsure as to what to do next. I've just been diagnosed as anaemic as well and am on iron tablets form the doctor for two months. Some people say I should cut out dairy, some say it could be cereals, some say it could be rice cakes - everybody is telling me something different and I'm left very confused, still severely bloated and in a lot of pain - can anybody tell me if they had this and what they did?

Any advice appreciated

A lot of Celiacs react to Dairy. Some can eventually add it back in. If you are certain that you did not get cross contaminated, then I would suspect Dairy. Iron pills can totally screw with your digestive tract. I took "Gentle Iron" by Solgar and it didnt bother me.

Hello

I had the same problem and it was all because of lactose/casein and an endless list of other food intolerances AND IBS. So I just had a test for food intolerances and when I exluded the guilty ingredients my belly stopped existing.

Just to let you know that till now I thought that everyone was feeling abdominal pain/bloating after eating. I thought it was normal.....Silly me...

You are not getting any gluten by accident, are you?

And yes lactose/casein intolerance is very common for celiacs.

Good luck

Just to echo what has been said here about dairy. I also had lots of problems with bloating, constipation etc until I gave up dairy.

Meline....what test did you take? Lame Advertisement

There is this lab here in greece that is running some tests , they call them nutritest. Without blood taking they measure the reaction of your body to some food combinations and they give you a list of your intolerances. I think my english is not good enough to explain the process in a better way....It cost me 250 euros to check 180 food ingredients. This can also be done with blood taking tests. It is 99% accurate (for me I think 100%.....)

I don't know the way you do it in your country but it was worth it for sure!!

Kisses

when I realised I was GI I dropped dairy at the same time as gluten, as well as most carbs and sugar. I thought "in for a penny, in for a pound!".

I had been tootling along fairly well for the last 3 months, getting odd reactions that I thought may be to other foods or just because my gut was still healing, but on Saturday I had a blatantly obvious reaction to gluten. I'm not sure what it was that did it but I suspect some oats that I used in some cookies I made.

Either I reacted to the oats or to some kind of contamination. I didn't sleep all night and was pretty dodgy for a couple days. Then Tuesday it happened again! This time I think it was some little nut and seed cookies that also have oats in them. I have been having them all the way through but lately I noticed that after one or two my stomach wasn't very happy.

What I am thinking is that I have probably been getting some gluten contamination from them all the way through, but suspect it is likely that my immune system is starting to kick back in now and that is why I am starting to get a lot more sensitive. Foods I thought were safe, aren't.

You may have the same problem. I am trying to completely avoid anything that might be a potential trigger or might even remotely have been contaminated.

Just out of interest, because I have had to now remove the oat milk I was having (the jury's out on soy and rice milk is too high in carbs - I am diabetic) I decided to try some cream in my (dairy-free!) hot choc this morning. My guts have been grumbling all afternoon and I have been passing the most obnoxious gas so that is definitely still a no-no. I might try the lactofree milk but although I am pretty sure my problem is lactose, it might be casein too.

Those who are Celiac/GI are typically reactive to other foods particularly dairy as the enzymes that produce lactase are situated at the tips of the villi and they usually are the first things to go in the damage process, mind you I do think you would have reacted to it sooner, but these things have a habit of not doing what we expect!

I still favour some kind of contamination, so look closely at what you are having and perhaps try a basic diet with nothing processed for a while to see if it makes any difference. I am doing the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and it does seem to help (the sweet oaty cookie things are not allowed so me eating them served me right!!!)

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I received the amended records in the mail. I don' think the doctor even read my email with the amendment request since she only corrected one statement I never said...the statement I gave as example while briefly talking to her on the phone the other day. So, I called the office to inquire why the other statements I never said were not corrected. Fortunately, the other staff member answered the phone. I'm surprised she told me this, but it was the best therapy for me so maybe she was meant to say it! She told me she knows what I mean about that one worker because she has to deal with it, too! She said a new office manager starts next week and she gave me her direct emal address to complain about that worker. 
    • Received Results. Looks like not Celiac?
      You've all been so helpful in guiding me what to do.  I did just receive my blood work and have an appt. with my doctor next week.  I wanted her to check it because I have lived a life of being extremely exhausted, migraines/headaches, and anxiety.  My thyroid is balanced and I am healthy (other blood results that were off were low platelet, low protein, high A/G ratio).  I am not good at reading results, but it appears negative to celiac, maybe next steps are trying a gluten-free diet for sensitivity?

    • healthy bread recipe?
      Hello, This is my first post. My 12yr old daughter was diagnosed with ?celiac disease. Her blood test was positive, genetic screen positive and her biopsy abnormal but they are not ready to say she is celiac because her villi are damaged but not gone. We are to adhere to a strict gluten-free diet for 6 months. So far (1 month) we have adjusted well. I am learning to bake again using many many many different flours lol. However I cannot find a good sandwich bread. There are good tasting breads with little or no fiber or heavy dense breads that don't make good sandwiches or toast. She has become very constipated on this gluten-free diet because of the low fiber content of the cereal,rice and breads. We were told no oats for the first year? and no or little dairy for the first month. She has been on a low histamine diet for 4 months now as well. My question is what is the best way to make gluten free bread, oven or bread maker? Does anyone have a good healthy recipe for sandwich bread that a kid would like? We normally eat a soft 5 grain bread before gluten-free. Thank you!
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Thanks so much, gluten-free,  in my hypchondriacal panic I saw that website!  It is good to have an endorsement from a celiac.   I remember seeing quite a few reassuring stories in it along the lines that you describe. Funny isn't as because I now feel far less inclined to eat large amounts of carbohydrate now I have cut back a bit.   It seems the more sugar I ate, the more I wanted to eat.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
