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.
