Anyone Get Worse At 5 Mo. Gluten Free?
0

6 posts in this topic

I've been five months gluten free, and it was all going really well. Adjusting to the diet, getting healthier, getting my energy back.

All of a sudden, I've developed two new food sensitivities in two weeks. Corn, which is confirmed, makes me as sick as if I've gotten a huge dose of gluten. Soy, which I haven't completely nailed down yet, seems to be a new one, because I was eating stuff with soy last week. Now this week, I feel like I've been hit by a truck, and those are the only things I can isolate as repeatable causes.

I know it's normal to develop more sensitivities as time goes on, and I know it's normal to get more sensitive to gluten itself. My question is around what time in your recovery did your extra food intolerances start showing up?

For me it was at about the 3 month mark...I'm at 4 months and still in the middle of dealing with it... :0P

I noticed worsening sensitivity after 3 months too. For me, I think it is mainly increased sensitivity rather than anything else (I am still dairy and oat free), but I am not ruling out other issues. Have gone back to diet basics to try to sort it out.

Wow.. it's 5 months exactly for me as well and I'm right where you are! I was doing well.. then all the sudden felt like I relapsed. I just started cutting out dairy so we'll see how that goes, but I'm so frustrated (actually scared more than anything). I read that some people have salicylate intolerance which absolutely terrifies me since that includes all my favorite foods. I'm seeing my primary doctor tomorrow so I guess we'll see what he says. I'm trying to eat as plain as possible (although I have yet to give up my morning coffee.. which I buy organic and grind at home). Today I just had some dry rice chex mix and a green smoothie (made with organic spinach, fresh blueberries, assorted frozen fruit and organic almond butter). We'll see how I feel later! My biggest issue is just terrible bloating, gas, and of course the 'big D'.. I've also heard SIBO could be a culprit. :(

I was great til 5 1/2 months.

I honestly think I was glutened, though - one big one. Then several small ones (eating out).

I did discover taking Claritin (half dose) helped get rid of some symptoms I was unsure were gluten or allergies. My allergies had been great gluten-free, though, til that point. I wonder if getting glutened triggered them?

I wonder if at around 5 months we start getting comfortable and adding in more potential cc or allergens? I know I did. I got braver (and dumber, apparently).

I also discovered my hubby's snoring is interfering with my sleep (he's on an out of town trip and guess what - im sleeping and my body feels sooo much better).

Prickly, I think you are sadly probably right about getting complacent (or dumb). I started enjoying myself eating more gluten free baked goods and started slowly going downhill again. Then I got dumb and went to the bagel shop to get a toasted bagel for my daughter. Waiting in the bagel shop for 5 minutes got me good. I was ill for days, not well for a further week, and my digestion still hasn't got back to where it had been before I got adventurous. Dumb is very a good word for it!
