Hunger Pangs
0

10 posts in this topic

Everybody have experience the differences in their hunger pangs since they got on the new diet after get off the gluten foods?

I am still newbie at gluten free diet. I has been learning so much and starting realizing that there are certain limitations on kind of gluten free processed foods.

I hasnt ate too much of gluten free processed foods Beside that, I am still eating gluten foods in attempt to prepare for tests that I want to be tested for gluten intolerance or celiac.

so, i am in between both of gluten and gluten free foods for time being. plus, when i feel really sick and I has to stop eat gluten for few days in order to be functionable to do things i needs to do.

I noticed the diffrence in hunger pangs since I started eat gluten free for few days that has slow down and feel full longer. I started feel less needed to snack often.

When I start eat gluten foods again, My hunger pangs starting go crazy and feel so hungry all the time. its seem like I am straving and want to eat more after plate ful of foods. I start eat more snacks often.

I even tried to drink lot of water in between and just before meals etc. it do help bit but not so much as If i keep my hand and mind very busy and more likely less that I stop feel needed to thinking about the food.

I have to admit that I am quite overweight at 240 and I am 27. My weight have been up and down lot in past five years. I was 190 in 2006. it climbed up to 220 and stayed until this year. It went up to 240. I feel so ashmased of myself often. I just try to think positive to lose weight.

I am pretty sure this have do something with my disgestive system is not able to work well if I have gluten in my system. it seem slow down and dont really work at all. its like sitting duck until I suddenly have lot of gas and D.

it seem do something with body is not able to absorbing vitamins and minerals correctly that can leading to cause me to be more hungry so body can try to absorb again if my digestive system failed to absorb food in first place?

So, I am just wondering...

Yes. When I'm eating a gluten full diet I wake up starving, feel starving within a few hours of a meal and well, just feel the need to eat all day long. When I'm gluten-free I am content w/ 3 meals a day.

I think what you're describing is pretty common? Have you made an appointment to get tested yet? It seems like you are reacting to gluten pretty strongly?

Some Celiacs are overweight when diagnosed. Your body isn't absorbing vitamins, so your brain tells you it wants food...and you eat. Can you at least take a good multi-vitamin?

I know you said you wanted to be tested so your family will take your gluten free diet seriously...but if there's some reason there will be a long delay until you can be tested, it might be good to just go gluten-free?

True bubba's mom,

I m scared of get tested since it would turn out negative. I feel much better if i dont eat breads and cake at all. As kid i dont even like breads and cake at all. I alwaxs prefer other foods over sandwiches, pizzas etc. Its like i follows my instinicts without even think about it. I just realized my habits by just read this website and thinking about my habits when i was growing up etc.

In addition, Would get testing be worth my cent to have a paper that say i do have gluten intolerance so other people will take me more seriously?

Well, it may be worth trying to figure out if you are NCGI or Celiac because there are currently different maintenance checklists for your healthcare. Right now, the advice is for vitamin/mineral testing, bone scans, diabetes testing, thyroid testing for Celiacs. I don't read the same advice for NCGI but wouldn't be surprised if it happens soon since the research is evolving. In addition, it may help others in your family if you are dx'ed Celiac.

Do you need it to follow the diet? No. Would knowing if you are Celiac help in the future? Perhaps.

Thank you Pricklypear,

sorry for delay in comment. I am already starting eat gluten free mostly thru out day but do guzzle down few slices of breads per day. I do notice the symptoms start pop up like couple of hours after. Plus, the headaches show up. I decided to make myself a ant in log which si celery and peanut butter with grape. I felt bit better after that.

my sister kept tell me i need go get tested first before her. she have severe IBS and wont go in for celiac test. I try to encourage her because her symptoms are further severe than mine. she is not willful.

However, in order for be positive for bloodwork. I will try to eat lot of gluten stuff for a while until i make appt with strange primary doctor. i dont know if i should make appt at chicago's celiac center or jsut with my local primary doctor? mmm...

Before I started the gluten free diet I craved sweets all the time and I have diabetes type 2...

I don't crave the candy and cookies anymore, but I have a weak spot for IrisHeart's flourless chocolate cake...

Might try to increase your protein intake/day. Worked for me. I never feel hungry.

Iv been ceilac for 7 years and i remeber when i was first diagnosed my hunger felt different or funny, me and everyone else thought i was crazy :P. its good to see im not the only one. I remeber i had just come off the flu and all of a sudden my stomach was feeling different before all the cramps started.

But yes if you're ingesting gluten it will cause a significantly less amout of your food to be digested, so your body will get hungry more often to make up for all the nutrience your missing out on.

    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
