Stomach Cramps?
0

4 posts in this topic

Do stomach cramps come only because gluten is ingested, and only a reaction to gluten OR

does gluten do enough damage to cause other foods to cause pain in the digestive process?

This would be pre-diagnostic... so the damage could be there.

For instance, I send my daughter with crushed fruit but the acidity in the fruit causes stomach burning b/c of obvious damage in there.

Would this happen to someone who currently is eating gluten or does it only happen as a result of gluten as it's passing through the digestive tract?

Hope that was clear.

They happen because gluten is ingested and as a reaction to gluten, but not ONLY.

Yes, because of the damage. That is why it takes a few days/weeks/months to feel better after going gluten free ... because the body is still healing.

OK - so I read somwhere else on the boards that starting out with basics such as fruit, veggies, meat etc. is maybe the way to go in the beginning - basically leaving out even the gluten free breads.

I was told by my Dr before going through a bunch of tests to try changing my diet and see if there is any improvement - this was last week and I am feeling sooooo much better, but still get some back pain around the same time every day. I am assuming this is "normal" maybe just getting all the leftovers out of my system.

I have been reading the boards for a few days now and there is a lot of help and it is very appreciated.

Hope everyone has a feel good day! :)

Hi mosaicmom, I tend to agree with happygirl, when I did my trial diet, I found I could no longer eat many of the raw veggies ..can't do apples either...Must just be too hard on my system right now as i'm too new at this.
