Lack Of Hunger
0

4 posts in this topic

i'm approaching 4 weeks of being off gluten. i feel like things have stabilized pretty well. i've discovered i'm sensitive to potatoes but i haven't tried other night shades yet. my skin is clearing up on my back and stomach. i haven't had a single headache or sinus problem which was my main issue. i'm able to get out of bed and be productive and don't nap everyday. i feel like a millions bucks most days compared to how i felt two months ago.

the one thing that's hard to adjust to is the lack of hunger. once i got past that starving detox phase i didn't seem to want to eat much. maybe this is just normal but it's so different to me. i was always the gal who went back for second or third servings. i was always looking for something to snack on. i would get hypoglycemic if i didn't eat every two hours. now i can go hours with no snacking and not feel hungry or shaky. i feel full after a bowl of cereal and can't finish my dinner most of the time.

does this sound pretty normal? i'd imagine it's because my body is actually processing the foods instead of shooting through my system.

I wish I had that problem. LOL I'm still hungry a lot after 2 months into the diet. I would just make sure that you are eating healthy foods and that you are eating enough calories during the day and not worry about it. Good thing you have had so much relief!

Your not alone. I almost never feel really hungrey either. The only exception is right after I have been glutened, then I can't get enough for a couple of days. I also think this is because my body is processing food normally now. I was constantly starving for the first couple months gluten-free but before that when I was on gluten I didn't feel hungrey either. But I think that was a sort of Pavlov's dog in reverse. Since for many years I got sick after anything I ate prediagnosis I just never wanted to eat.

In the first couple of weeks I didn't feel hungry, either. I would try to eat anyway, and had trouble getting down/digesting typical large meals. Instead I ate small meals/snacks every 2-3 hours during this phase, and didn't have any problems with this. Now, I'm having trouble sensing feeling full, so I have to be careful!!

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.
    • The gluten-free diet (GFD) is the only validated treatment for celiac disease (celiac disease), but despite strict adherence, complete mucosal recovery is rarely ... View the full article
    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
