Got Glutened... Prolonged Symptoms?

3 posts in this topic

Hey all,

I'm not entirely sure if this is the right place to put this post, but its symptom related so I took my best guess :P

I've been confirmed Coeliac since right before Christmas last year, and am beginning to get used to the whole gluten free thing.

My gluten symptom is usually diarhhoea. It tends to hit a few hours after I've made a lapse in gluten-free eating judgement, and be over in a matter of hours (once I get some gastro-stop into me, anyway :P)

However, I copped a gluten hit last Sunday night (unfortunately causing me to be unable to attend a musical I bought tickets for... frustrating!). Since then, I've been on and off with the D, and quite gassy.

This isn't a usual thing for me, so as you are all more experienced at this than I am, I ask of you: Is this a normal kind of thing? Or is it likely that there's something else at work here?

Slight extra info: I do NOT have any other known food allergies - the test I took for Coeliac also checked for lactose intolerance and I came up clear on that. As for nutrient deficiencies, none have been noticed in the few blood tests / checkups I've had since diagnosis, although I'm up for another (and likely another gastroscopy) in a couple of months time.

Thanks in advance for your advice!

That is typical for me. Depending on the severity of the glutening, I have symptoms lasting up to a week or so. The minimum is about 3 days.

But since that's not typical for you, a few things could be happening. Your body might be adjusting to gluten differently now. My responses changed quite a bit over the first year. Also, as you heal, you might notice the effects more and stuff you would have brushed off before might be things you notice now.

You might be continuing to eat something with gluten in it, especially something with low-level cross contamination. You should check anything you introduced in the last week or so.

And of course, if diarrhea is your main symptoms, it could just be a bug and not celiac related.

Oh right... wrong Sunday... I forgot what day it was :P

Its been about a week and a half. It's starting to come under control now (not quite D anymore, but still consistent bathroom runs happening more often than normal)

I also somehow forgot to point out that I take Slippery Elm Root capsules consistently as a digestive aid. I've found it generally helps greatly with my Coeliac symptoms - particularly early on when gluten or no I just couldn't stop being sick >_>
