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...

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.

    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      My friend, I'm sorry to hear of your pain. I don't know if mercury is related, but I will give you my brief experience. I went through so many health issues, medications, and dr's and nobody could find anything wrong with me, but I knew something was wrong. I've been through many doctors, shots, pills, etc and nothing helped. For me it all came down to gluten. I had blood tests that shown the antibodies and the endoscopy that proved I had celiac, which I don't think is needed. If your body makes the antibodies I can't help to believe you have it. Anyway, long story short. If you are sick, you are sick and if a doctor can't find the reason, move on to a new doctor. Celiac, at least for me was simple. Stop eating gluten and every other health problem goes away. I have 30 + year old amalgam fillings and I feel amazing as long as I don't put anything in my mouth that isn't naturally gluten free, which means I only eat meat and vegetables. Our bodies are all different. I guess my only advice to you is if you're sick, your sick. Nobody lives inside your body but you and you know best if you feel better. Don't be afraid to stand up for yourself. 
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Ok thank you for the input! I am happy to hear what you think about her biopsy. Her GI is actually getting a second opinion from the celiac specialist. Our appointment is in a week. I have always thought she had celiac too. I asked them to do a biopsy years ago and they did but it was normal. She has more neurological symptoms than GI. She has headache and POTS. But she was reacting to all kinds of foods all of the sudden a few months ago. The low histamine diet really helped and she tolerates more foods now. I make almost everything from scratch, there is no gluten anywhere in the house and I don't use gums because she and I react to them. Breakfast is the hardest. Eggs are high histamine, she can't have oats, can't have fermented foods (yogurt), Breakfast is a nightmare. Many fruits and veggies are high histamine. She eats the ones she can tolerate. That's why I was asking about breads. What do you eat for breakfast? Are flax seeds safe or are they like oats? I can't find any flax seeds that say certified gluten free.
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Hi! So I've never posted in a medical forum but y'all seem super helpful so I figured I'd throw this out there! Sorry if this is long lol. Basically, I'm a 22 year old who has stomach problems for as long as I can remember and it's recently gotten worse. I remember having bad stomach aches and diarrhea off and on since I was little. I finally told my parents and saw a GI in high school who took an xray, said it was IBS, and told me to eat more fiber. Around the same time I was feeling weak all the time and I was having what kinda felt like panic attack symptoms without the actual psychological panic. It kind of felt like a hot flash or too much adrenaline? I just kept telling the doctors that I felt "off". I was also diagnosed with atrial flutter, sinus tach, and asthma for no apparent reason, and I just felt like crap in general some days with no explanation.  I leaned to deal with my stomach problems because everything seemed to come and go. Oddly enough when I went away to college it was a little better for my first year or two. Fast forward to about a year ago, and it started getting more consistent so I went to a new GI. She ordered an ultrasound of my abdomen and from there I actually found out that I had a poorly functioning gallbladder (without stones). I had that taken out in November and have not felt any better since. What's weird is that I never had what I would consider "gallbladder pain", as there really isn't a particular spot that hurts every time. Also I want to add that I am a super levelheaded person, so my doctor telling me it's IBS and to cut stress and see if it helps makes me roll my eyes. This is often how my diarrhea starts off these days: I'll feel bad hot flashes or just "off" and foggy for no reason, then hear the gurgles, get pain, and then diarrhea. Most of the time I feel better after that; sometimes I don't. But I think it's weird that I often feel fluish before my stomach even starts hurting.  Basically I just have all these weird vague symptoms that don't seem related and have been coming and going since at least high school. My current GI doc ordered IGA and IGG tests last summer which came back negative. She also did a colonoscopy a few weeks ago and that was negative too. Now she wants to do a small bowel xray with barium.  Here are my main symptoms: diarrhea 2-6 x a day (it ranges from just loose stools to full-on watery)  severe bloating to the point I look pregnant weird hot flashes that seem correlated to my stomach problems headaches had my gallbladder taken out even though I'm 22 and normal weight short stature (4' 10") nausea bad eczema   Does this really seem like IBS or could my blood results be wrong? My doctor seems to think she's thoroughly tested me for celiac. Would the small intestine xray show any of that? Thanks in advance!!!    
    • Diagnosis and Test Results
      I have been struggling with  symptoms for over a year and had lots of other testing done by my GI.  She did the celiac disease blood test a few weeks ago.  It came back positive for the two genetic markers but my antibodies were negative.  I received the results by phone from the (stupid) nurse who only relayed to me that "your tests showed that you are positive for Celiacs Disease.  you need to go on a gluten free diet and follow up in a few months".  I was so surprised by what she said it didn't even occur to me to call the doctor directly so I took it upon myself to research the disease and going on a strict  gluten free diet.  The first two weeks were horrible!  EVERYTHING I ate gave me diarrhea.  After two weeks, I started to feel better but anytime I inadvertently ate gluten by accident or was cross contaminated, I had horrible diarrhea again.  I spoke with my GI doctor today (I work at the hospital where she works) and she explained the blood results better to me.  (I still haven't expressed my anger about the nurse to her yet...but I will!) It doesn't make sense to me that I have the gene, have been experiencing IMO full blown symptoms (significant weight loss, malnourished, diarrhea, migraines, increased depression/anxiety, etc) but my antibody test was negative.  Could it be lab error?  I asked about an endoscopy and she said we could do it but it still may not confirm the disease.  I've also researched IBS and I don't seem to match up with those symptoms. Part of me wants to know if I have a gluten intolerance or the actual disease.  Either way I'll continue to follow the gluten-free diet but I think it's important to know if I have an autoimmune disease correct?  Or does it? Just looking for some guidance...
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Absolutely, absolutely, absolutely!!!!!!! Your doctor seems to think all her villi have to be completely wiped out for her to be celiac. Like cyclinglady says.... get the records & get a second opinion. BTW, I happen to agree with all the rest she said too but I just wanted to emphasize the second opinion part.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
