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?

    • Previous studies have indicated an increase in celiac disease rates in the United States, but these studies have been done on narrow populations, and did not produce results that are nationally representative. View the full article
    • No worries!!! 

      Yes I've been completely gluten free for over a year now, except when I get glutened from restaurants etc. My 'traces symptoms' have always been major bloating and lots of bathroom breaks but now during my gluten challenge so far I've had some super crazy symptoms... varying from loose stools to severe constipation, bloating 24/7, shortness of breath, rash, joint pains, mood swings, brain fog, headaches and some sharp pains similar to brain freeze but worse... the list goes on, but I'm determined to have a definite result! 
    • Ennis_TX - Your post rings true with me. I was only diagnosed in May, but from May through.... basically two weeks ago, I was out of my mind. I completely understand when you describe it. I had zero self control. I retired from the Army after 21 years and had always had pride in myself that I could handle just about anything thrown my way. That was until this disease. I found myself sobbing uncontrollably, not getting out of bed till late afternoon, hiding in the bedroom from my own family, missing work, not being able to make simple decisions, I was getting at most, 3 hours of sleep a night. I would sit up in bed and literally scream out loud in frustration. I asked my wife several times to bring me to the VA Psyc. ward (which she talked me out of). I had no pleasure or happiness in my life even though I have a very supportive wife of 32 years, and two ideal kids with three grandkids. I had NO reason to feel the way I did, but yet, there I was. And like you mentioned, I too had a "Bucket List" per say.  To top it all off, I had this horrible muscle pain in my legs and arms. Joints a little, but the muscles were in constant pain. One month ago they diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia. At this point I am not willing to accept that diagnosis.  They started me on Gabapentin and these last two weeks I have actually started feeling less pain in the muscles and my mind is bouncing back too. Although the muscle pain came back a bit Sunday, and has me a little concerned. I keep telling myself it has only been 4 months gluten-free, and that it will take time. But I have to admit, I do not have much patience and I want to start feeling better now.   I ran into an old Army friend a few weeks back, and he had been diagnosed in 2009. He told me everything he went through and other than diarrhea and an inflamed throat, his biggest symptoms were depression/anxiety and brain fog. He said his wife was so worried she sold all of his guns. He would sometimes find himself in the backyard just curled up in the grass wondering when it would end for him. Absolute craziness. When I shared the issues I was having he could relate 100%. He said he hasn't met anyone else that went through the same things as him and it was therapeutic for us both. He told me of some places that were Celiac friendly, and we agreed to let each other know when something new hits the market, or any other good news via text. Back in May I searched for a celiac support group near by, but no luck. I stumbled on this forum and it has helped me tremendously. Stories like yours helped to insure me I was not losing my mind. Which, I might add, I told many VA & civilian Psychiatrists that indeed I was. Thanks for your post, and I hope nothing but the best for you, here forward. Dharwood
    • It is enough for the endoscopy, but not for the blood panel.  It could be worth trying for the blood test, but there is a greater chance of it being negative.  I assume you have been gluten-free for a while.  I admire that you were able to do the gluten challenge!  (I guess I should have pulled up your previous posts, but I was busy getting my kid to school.)
    • The doctor suspected celiac specifically, and he said 3-4 weeks would be enough... I understand that there are multiple recommendations varying from 3 weeks to 3 months but from what I've read I think 4 weeks will most probably not be enough for a positive result in the case that I am celiac.
