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...

    • 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.

    • 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.
