My Stomach Will Not Stop Bubbling!

6 posts in this topic

I have been 100% gluten free since July 14, 2009. I think based upon what I have read I went through the withdrawls and feeling like a dead zombie but now, this week, my stomach will not stop bubbling. Does that mean I am unknowingly getting glutened?

Being new to the forum, joined last night, I am still trying to understand how and where to post comments. I posed this in the food arena and got great ideas for recipes, but still need help understanding my diagnosis as well as a DD and a DH and so forth.

I was diagnosed as celiac by my nutritionist after receiving my lab results by Kimball in July 2009. She said that since I carry the celiac gene and was having celiac related symptoms I should consider myself a celiac. I am not sure but would love to know which strand of my DNA, alpha or beta, tested positive. I also do not understand what the difference is between DQ2 and DQ8. How can you be gluten intolerant and not celiac? Here are my test results.

DQ2 (DQA1*05/DQB1*02 Positive

DQA1*0501 or *0505 Detected

DQB1*0201 or *0202 Detected

DQ8 (DQB1*0302): Negative

DQ1*0302 Not Detected

My daughters were put on a gluten-free diet in 9/05 due to celiac-like symptoms. I have been mostly gluten-free since then but earlier this year began struggling with fatigue and daily bowel issues. Finally scraped up enough to pay for the Kimball test in 07/09 for myself, out of pocket since Kaiser will only do a blood test, will test the children when finances allow.

I am in the learning curve and still stuck in a bit of denial right now.

Throw out cut plastic bowls and plates? Do not allow gluten in my home? Check ingredients in my make-up? Have a biopsy done to determine how bad the villi look and what stage of damage I am in?

Any help would be appreciated! :huh:

For myself that burbling is a symtom that I have been glutened. The gluten free diet is not something that you can do 'sort of'. It needs to be strict otherwise the antibodies will remain active. You do need to check your all meds and supplements, both OTC and script, makeup, toiletries, be careful of cross contamination, replace any porous kitchen tools that have been used for gluten foods, have a dedicated gluten-free toaster etc. You have found a good place to learn about the gluten free life, welcome. Read as much as you can here and ask any questions you need to ask.

Yes, my stomach gurgles a lot lately. I'm trying to be gluten free but I believe I am getting cross contaminated. I think I have lots of other food allergies and would like to be tested.

Before I went gluten free by our own decision about a month ago, my stomach would be gurgling and popping and making freakish noises every night as i lay in bed. Sometimes we would put a microphone to my stomach to really amplify the weirdness. It was really funny.

But now im gluten free i havent noticed any of that, so my first guess is that you are getting gluten some how. In april i went glluten free, but my pediatrician told me i didnt need to. When I was gluten free then, i was using the same toaster, vitamins with oat fiber and barley grass, and eating lindor truffles which i didnt realize had malt in them.

So check everything and maybe stick to a bland diet where you know you wont be getting gluten.

Good luck-

And have you cut out dairy? I didnt cut it out the first time and i cut it out this time and i think it is making it easier.

You may also experience that gurgling sound if you're eating something else you're intolerant of. Additional intolerances are not uncommon among us here. The gurgling and gas happens to me too if I eat peppers or eggplants or too much tomato. For some reason potatos don't bother me. The best way to figure out what is bothering you is to keep a log of everything you eat. By doing that you should be able to spot patterns.

It seems that once you remove gluten from your diet other intolerances and allergies become more pronounced, or perhaps just more noticable.

I vote for making your kitchen gluten free. Then keep a food (and brand name) diary. After a few day you should find out what food/foods are causing your problem.

If you write out everything you put in your mouth, your will figure it out. Remember things like gum and candy and soda all might contain hidden traces of gluten.

    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      I agree. As an adult its a little easier to withstand the rolling of eyes and exaggerated sighs from people who think you are over reacting and being too fussy.  My youngest has anaphylaxis to fish and seafood and people are incredibly understanding and careful - but it seems celiacs has become a "fad" due to gluten intolerant people removing credibility from true celiacs.  Adults can argue but kids are vulnerable. Socially its really isolating for them.    I totally relate to the waiting on endoscopy. For my very sick 12 year old the 8-9 weeks we waited for sheer hell and I felt I was feeding him rat poison. Now my 17 year old is waiting on his, booked for later this week.  Its a total nightmare waiting knowing you can start the healing if only you could stop feeding them gluten.  But I figure for future reference, having a solid diagnosis via biopsy is important. Good luck to you and your son.
    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      Hugs to you and your daughter. My son and I are in the same boat, or at least,  paddling alongside your boat.  At their age being scrupulous about their diet is not only incredibly hard but socially isolating. Adults consider celiac people to be a pain so imagine what their young friends think.  Feeling so unwell and having no energy adds to their distress. And the thing is - I don't think at that age that they really understand that even the slightest bit of gluten will set them back badly.  I know my son is convinced one sweet won't matter. It really really sucks.  
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      No one in my wider family gets it, although my sister is certainly trying to understand. She gets that I will bring all food for my coeliac kids when we come for meals and is okay with that.    For other social events, I will suggest the meal is at my place so I can control the gluten.  But my biggest battle is my children's father (my ex husband) who refuses to get it, and thinks I am being stupid and trying to prevent him seeing V.  I have offered that V can visit but not eat nor stay the night.  Ex does not have the means or the brains to manage gluten free meals.    At this point it looks like I may need to go to court to get an order to prevent V from being forced to go and get glutened. I really really hope to avoid this, but its not looking good. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I guess it's the "natural flavoring" which throws me off. It could or could not contain gluten and it's in so many products. I haven't been on a gluten-diet for as long as you...6 years. I may have bee undiagnosed and untreated for more than 25 years since i had signs that went back to chidhood. Yes, I have balance/anxiety/neuro issues. I know anxiety is connected to damage in intestines, but I don't know for sure if celiac causes balance/neuro issues. I was already tested for brain ataxia, but I didn't get too far on that. Well, there wasn't an exact test, but the neurologist noted that I was walking straight or something on those grounds so I must not have it. I know studies have shown Transglutaminase 6 antibodies indicate gluten ataxia, butthat test is not yet available to the public.  
    • Newbie: mother to coeliac kids
      Today is day 5 and I know it takes much longer to recover, but he is so ill today he has skipped school and is in bed asleep when he is not writing around in pain.   I will interrogate him later - there is a chance he ate something from his friends.

      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. Thank You,

      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!
