Anyone Else Have This Happen?

10 posts in this topic

before i was diagnosed, i used to have diarrhea sometimes. now that i have been diagnosed, i feel like i get it MORE, and not just in reaction to gluten. i get it randomly, and like RIGHT after eating, and i can see pieces of whatever i've just eaten in it.

i know this is so so so gross, but this is the only place i can ask about it.

is this because my system has been "cleaned out" so much? or is it that my celiac disease was worsening as time went on and my body would react like this whether i had stopped eating gluten or not? and if this is happening whether i eat gluten or not, and literally RIGHT after eating, what else could be going on??

Don't worry, I can SO RELATE TO YOU!!!

I avoid as much as possible salads, fruits with skin, tomatoes, corn, mushrooms. All go through my system basically undigested.

The next time you see your doctor, ask him maybe to investigate the possibility of you having collagenous colitis. After a decade of permanent watery diarrhea, the top celiac guy in Canada finally figured out (by colonoscopy) that I also had collagenous colitis. Google it up, it might sound very familiar to you......

Good Luck!

Add me to this list.... I love salads... bummer. I have been able to achieve some control over the D by using Metamucil or Citracil 2-3 times a day.

i eat salads all the time, so i don't think it's due to them... last night (when i had another "episode") i also had a LOT of fat free whipped cream, which is basically skim milk and sugar. could a lactose issue cause this violent reaction?

Yes lactose intolerance could give you the"D".

I don't get extreme D all the time, but my food always comes out with undigested parts. Like "oh, there's what I ate for lunch." !

Does anyone still have floaters after being gluten-free for awhile?? I always thought this was normal..... and after 11 weeks gluten-free they still don't sink! :blink:

Sue, so glad you asked that! I have been wondering the same thing. Also been gluten-free 11 weeks. Still chronically constipated and when I do go (with help) - still floaters! Does this ever change?

Lactose intolerance can definitely be your problem. What happened in my diagnosis was they thought I was lactose intolerant in the beginning cause I had the D all the time - several times a day. So I gave up dairy. It quieted down some but never truly went away. I finally gave up wheat/gluten and my system has quieted down a lot, still have a few problems, but I think everyone gets the D once in awhile. Now that I have given up wheat for good, my lactose intolerance problem may heal, because my intestines are healing and I should be able to digest dairy again at some point. I accidently ate butter a month or two ago, I had some grumblings and gas, but I never had to run to the bathroom like I did in the past.

I would give up all dairy for two weeks and see what happens, also look for dairy ingredients in the foods that you eat, cause it is in a lot of things. I can eat Yoplait and Dannon yogurt with no problem at all.

If I have a dietary acceident I'm usually C for several days, but then all of a sudden I'll have D.....It's a welcomed change by that point and usually I sign that I'm getting over it...

    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
