Gluten Detox
0

3 posts in this topic

I've been off gluten for a full week now, but I still get very bad gas pains. Is this normal? Or does it mean something other than gluten has been causing my symptoms? Since going g.f., I have had more energy and my skin symptoms are clearing, but no relief with the gas- no matter what I eat, the pain starts about 30 min to an hour later.

What does detox feel like?

Thanks.

I'm sorry I really don't has an answer I'd just like to day I'm gluten free 1 1/2 months now and I've been feeling better in energy and headaches are gone but my bloating is awful. Everytime I eat my stomah grows. I wake up with a slightly bloated stomach, and everytime I eat it just grows to the poirnt where the end of the day I am huge and sick and heating pads and stuff. My main symptom was unbelievably stubborn constipation which I don't think is fixed that's why I'm so bloated, I go daily(now that school has started I haven't been!) but I think I'm so backed up. All of this and I'm only 13.

Wow that really didn't answer you I just wanted to let you know that your not tv only one who didn't miracly have all of their problems immediatley go away(hopefully they will soon)

Good luck and I'm iterested in hearing the answers you get from these helpful people

Are either of you eating alternate grains? They really do a number on me. How about dairy? At first you should not eat dairy as most of us have damaged villi that cannot tolerate dairy.

I would suggest to both you to give up dairy first. See if you see improvement in a few days. If not stop the grains and see how you feel. It's the only way to know.

People with withdrawals seem to describe them as even more intense gluten symptoms. Anyone know more than that?

    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
