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.

    • Are you vegan or vegetarian?   I am concerned about your lack of protein and fats in your diet.  These diets can work when you are also gluten free, but as a celiac you can be malnourished.  It is hard to heal when you are slowly starving yourself.   No offense, but some newly diagnosed celiacs end up with food disorders.  Perhaps working with a dietician can help.   What actually are your blood glucose levels?  Did you know that just as Hashimoto's is common with celiacs, so is type 1 diabetes?   Ask your doctor for antibodies testing for Type 1 diabetes (TD1), if your blood glucose levels are not in the normal  range.  You can develop TD1 (LADA) at anytime.   For adults there is a "honeymoon" period which can last for up to five years.  Be on the watch for other AI issues (besides TD1) too.   It is so important to monitor your health after a celiac disease diagnosis!  
    • He was not IGA deficient.  I'm still hoping we can convince the base GI to approve his referral.   Thanks for that thread about TTG Igg.  That's exactly what I was wondering. 
    • Star Anise Foods  rice paper and spring rolls are gluten free they have brown and white rice versions. I have not had issues with these in the past when I used to use them. Should be able to find them on amazon.
    • Hi strawberrymoon, If you are having a blood sugar problem, that can cause nerve damage and tingling.  Nerve damage is often associated with diabetes.  You can ask your doctor to check your A1C level to get an idea how it has been doing. It would probably help your glucose levels to stick with a paleo style diet, avoiding most carbs.  Carbs and meats have a different affect on blood glucose.  Carbs tend to spike blood glucose while meats even it out. There are a lot of negative changes that can happen with high blood glucose.  It is wise to try and get it under control ASAP.  My brother has lost most of his vision in one eye now from high blood glucose.  And he has the tingling symptoms you described.  The tingling can progress to pain in time.  My brother chose to ignore his diabetes and is paying the price for it.  He is doing better at it now but the damage is done. Yes, B-12 deficiency can cause those kind of nerve symptoms.  But if you have high blood sugar that is the more common cause.   Diabetes is not a rare condition.
    • I have been living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, for two years, and finding gluten-free food is proving more difficult than I thought, even if I am cooking my own food. Wheat flour, called "bot mi" in Vietnamese, seems to creep into a lot of stuff nowadays. What's more, manufacturers do not feel it is important to list bot mi in the ingredients on a food's packaging unless it is a principle ingredient in the food. In other words, soy sauces or wraps with just a tiny bit of wheat flour added to add a touch of thickness or pliability are not guaranteed to list the ingredient. For some genetic reason, Vietnamese people are not nearly as susceptible to food allergies as Westerners - it probably has something to do with exposure to less hygenic foodstuffs having built up an immunity over hundreds of years - so it is not really considered important to split hairs in that department over here. Anyway, I love rice paper but have often gotten glutened by it when I have it. Can any celiac who could tell if a product had gluten by more than just the ingredient list on the back let me know a definitively gluten-free rice paper brand? I know that very few rice paper brands actually list wheat flour in the ingredients, but I don't 100% trust the ingredients list for products made by Vietnamese companies. Call me paranoid. By the way, I have a neurological condition that irreversably breaks down my immune system when I ingest gluten, so I don't want to experiment with trial by fire here.
