Getting Enough Fibre.

8 posts in this topic

If this is in the wrong place I am sorry, please move.

How do you all go about getting your daily intake of fibre, I have been eating a lot of fruits, but my stool is still very soft, almost diarhea.

Thanks.

well, i dont know your situation, and everyone is different- but i have issues with too much fructose and fructans. for me, personally i will have different bathroom experiences with different kinds of produce.

if i eat fruits & veggies high in fructose/fructans (google FODmap diet or Fructose Malabsorption)- than i sometimes get the "D".

ALTHO- some of those avoid fruits really made my bathroom experiences fantastic- like pears.

for me- i stick to a good amount of cooked veggies- broccoli, carrots, spinach, zucchini...

and ive noticed that eating some low fructose fruit & yogurt everyday helps.

i also really need fruit or veggies with every meal... if my meal only has meat & starch then it'll back me up.

are you accidentally getting glutened? or do u still consume dairy? or do u have a Fructose problem? these could be causing your "D".

putting the "fructose" issue aside: i personally believe the real fleshy fruits & veggies really make your bathroom issues a pleasant experience: bananas, mangos, avacado, etc.

I try to eat oatmeal every other day (if you can tolerate), I take my fiber gummies everyday, veggies with lunch and dinner. I also found this gluten free oat mix that has 9 grams of fiber per 1/4 cup so I mix this with yogurt.

I thought I wasn't getting enough fibre even though I ate heaps of veges but it turned out to be because I was eating the wrong fruits and veges. I have problems with frutose, fructans and sorbitol malabsorption so I'm mostly following a low FODMAP diet. Cutting out onion made the biggest difference.

I saw a dietitian and she said my fibre intake was fine, but the symptoms from these malabsorption issues can make you think you aren't getting enough.

I have been on the FODMAP diet for a week and my bowels have really improved along with my symptoms. The medical professional that put me on the diet said that I won

I eat an avocado (sometimes half if I am eating too many calories) every day and a bag of popcorn. The avocado alone has 14g fiber in it.

I also found (with the help of this list) a high fiber gluten-free cereal similar to All Bran. Perky's? Something like that? It tastes OK, not great. Can't remember the fiber, maybe 8 or 9 grams?

    • Hi!  I've had good luck at the Minnesota state fair because most food booths are only doing one thing so there is no cross-contamination. For example: french fries or chocolate covered bacon or Indian kebabs.   But I live in California and I am heading to the state fair today! Does anybody have any great food suggestions that are definitely gluten-free there? Thanks, Celiac C.
    • Hi.  I have been reading your post and thinking about how my pain was around diagnosis.  It was above the belly button, I think where you are describing.  At the time I assumed I had a stomach ulcer.   I had been taking Neurofen for an ear problem and assumed it was the NSAID that had caused my stomach ulcer (which I actually didn't have, when I had an endoscopy a few weeks later my stomach was looking great! My small intestine was not!).   Going back to the pain, it was a burning feeling.   My doctor prescribed Omeprazole but it didn't touch it.   In fact I ended up with bad D. which eventually lead to me having all the tests for Celiac Disease.   I still get that pain if I eat oats (pure oats) that are supposed to be OK for most Celiacs.     I get various pains in different places in my digestive tract from time to time, but that burning pain is something I won't forget. The other thing I had that you mention was that pain between the shoulder blades.  I had that - I felt almost like someone was pushing my shoulders down.  So odd. I get palpitations when I am anemic.    I hope you get some answers soon.  It is pretty tough having to keep going from one doctor to another, but sometimes it is the only way.   
    • I sit in an ice bath after a long training (running or riding).  It speeds my recovery, I swear!  
    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
    • I don't care what she specializes in, you MAKE her do a dh biopsy. I'm not being mean. Please understand that. It's just that I've heard this a thousand times before - no, a thousand one hundred!  Here's another thing ~~~ get her to order a eTG aka TG3 serum (blood test). That is specific for dh.  Oh gosh! Don't you just hate the ones in your ears???!!!!! Nah, we hate ALL of them! I swear though, when those suckers get going in & on your ears it just drives you stark raving mad!!!!! You've convinced me there is more than ample reason to strongly suspect it's dh.  Here's a tip..... the patterning the lab will be looking for is very easily destroyed by scratching so pick you out some prime places that are new & maybe, just maybe you haven't scratched them to smithereens thus far, and make some super thick gauze bandages & place them over those places so even if you reach to scratch (& we know you will! right?) the gauze will remind you & hopefully help to protect it. The biopsy needs to be taken from a clear area adjacent to a fresh lesion. No steroid creams okay? Not till after the biopsy. BTW, if she wants to put you on steroids after the biopsy be warned, 99% of the time there is such a backlash of the rash the moment you go off the steroid that you will wish you were never born. A dx of dh IS a dx of celiac disease & no further testing is needed. Please come back & update us after you see her tomorrow. In the meantime you have my heartfelt sympathy. Take those cold showers & grit your teeth. Hopefully you will soon be able to go gluten free & start getting some relief.
