Symptoms After Going Gluten Free?
Posted 03 March 2011 - 05:38 AM
I've had IGg Elisa testing done which showed high sensitivity to gluten, wheat, eggs and all dairy along with mod. sensitivity to some other foods. I was gluten free for 2 weeks, while taking a probiotic and fish oil before this problem started. The GI doc thinks it was the fish oil but I don't think it would last for 3 weeks! My ND thinks it could be a period of adjustment for my system. I don't know and my anxiety is mounting higher. The symptoms that prompted me to get the IGg test done was primarily eczema and acid reflux. As far as GI problems, I've always had them off and on all my life. My nervousness would go directly to my gut but not for this long. Before this started, I had a little problem with constipation, then I normalized, then I got loose. Sorry for all the tmi.
I will say that I have not been eating gluten, dairy or eggs for the past 6 weeks, so I cannot blame anything there. When I was normal before while eating gluten, dairy and eggs, I now have problems. I have been keeping a food diary for the last 3 months and I cannot pinpoint anything EXCEPT before this started I was eating A LOT of cruciferous veggies and dried fruit, honey and applesauce and pears. Fructose maybe? I thought this too so I've been fructose free as much as possible for the last several days.

I had such random and awful stomach problems before going gluten free - I had no idea that that could've been the issue - that I felt for a long time that I was allergic to food in general. Not a pleasant feeling. It's only been 2 months, but since going gluten-free, I've felt significantly better.
Be sure to listen to your body - more than any doctors or magazines or people on forums can ever tell you, your body will let you know what is right. I had a million tests for gluten and plenty of other allergies that all came up negative... but when I finally went gluten free, I started to feel better.
