So I'm worried that I am/have developed another digestive problem. Six months ago I got glutened (CC) and then had three months of D, nausea, and vomiting. It slowly disappeared over time. Now last week I started getting D again and nausea. I took Imodium because I had to go to class. That stopped me up for two days and then I had normal BMs for three days. Now the D is back. I don't think this is a glutening as I don't have any of the other symptoms that I get with glutening (not even cramping). I have been gluten free for two years. Could I be developing soy intolerance or lactose intolerance after this amount of time? Any advice/ insight is very much appreciated. Everything has been going well so far.
If you are abstaining from gluten, you may now notice sensitivities (intolerances) to other foods. You may have had those reactions all along, but your gluten intolerance reaction was more noticeable. You could actually have a casein (dairy protein) allergy, rather than mere lactose (milk sugar) reactions. After I abstained from gluten, I still had reaction symptoms. So I got allergy (ELISA blood) tests, which showed I had 5 more allergies (besides dairy and gluten, which Enterolab diagnosed).
Even after eliminating my allergens, I still had symptoms. So my doc gave me a stool test for bacteria, parasites and candida. Over a 4 year period I treated 8 different gut bugs. Only after I identified and abstained from all my allergies and identified and treated all my gut bugs did my symptoms finally disappear. I read so many posts on this board from people who think they are being 'glutened' even when they conscientiously abstain from gluten. Unfortunately they don't consider (or get tested for) other allergies or gut bugs. If you know you're not consuming gluten, consider getting reliable allergy tests and/or stool tests for gut bugs from a reputable naturopath
