Ok so it's been like two weeks of being more vigilant about what I'm eating. I have been gluten-free for 2 years but by my own admission I haven't taken it seriously. Didn't ask enough questions at restaurants and the like. So I was starting to feel ok and last night got take out from a place I trust and knows about gluten. I again am miserable today. I feel like I am a mess. What should I do?? Am I reacting to a cc or is it a new sensitivity or is my system still out of whack? My doc is out of town, and I'm overdue to again check my vitamin levels and thyroid. he will be out again next week. So would have to wait another 10 days for a md appointment. What do I take my diet down to to feel better?

Sometimes you have to take it down to fresh meats, fruits, veggies, no grains.

And don't eat out.

Try digestive enzymes and probiotics - I think you already do that?

Honestly, if your vitamin levels and/or thyroid is off you may be fighting a losing battle til you get them sorted.

Keep a food diary - what, when, how much. It's probably just the healing process, but may be another food. If you're still on milk you may consider dropping it and see if it helps.

Yep on probiotics and digestive enzymes. I don't eat much dairy. Never have. Cheese and mostly hard cheeses at that. I can try just meat, fruit and veggies. No grains will not be easy, gluten-free toast and peanut butter is the only breakfast that sits well but I could nix the grains for a while too if that would help. I haven't even eaten today cause I feel so crappy. Unlike a lot of people I got diagnosed very weirdly. I haven't gotten a biopsy to confirm or even a gi doc anymore. My gi did nothing including not testing me. Thought from my endoscopy that I had bad h pylori infection. I did have flattened villi but attributed it to infection. Then I saw a naturopath who was an idiot but tested me. Results were pos but at the time he said they weren't for whatever reason. It wasn't until a year and a half later that my primary doc had requested the results from the naturopath that I knew for sure by then I had self diagnosed and was off (that's what prompted my doc to get the records) gluten and didn't want further testing cause I would have had to go back on gluten. So have been doing vitamin levels and not much else. I don't know whether to just take my diet down to basics and get levels tested in 10 days or to ask to do more. My guess is I am just getting more sensitive. Where I could maybe handle small amounts of cc now I can't at all. But you are right if my vit levels are off again I am fighting an up hill battle. How long would you suggest dairy and grain free??

I'd do it til you were sure you saw results or knew that wasn't it. I think most say one month at least.

I know. Breakfast sucks when you change it. I vacillate between eggs w veggies and eggs as a sandwich.

You could try making nut bread. Try Elana's pantry site for almond bread recipes.

It does sound like you might have gotten glutened. Many times we do become more sensitive as time goes on. Avoiding restaurants for a bit would be a good idea. Be easy on your tummy for bit. How have you been feeling before this hit? If you had been feeling pretty good then I would go simply go with as much unprocessed food as you can for a bit. If the toast and pnut butter hasn't been giving you problems then I would go ahead and keep it in. You could have another intolerance, soy and dairy are the most common so if you aren't feeling better in a couple of days then do go ahead and drop those for a bit. If things clear up off of gluten, soy and dairy then you could add the dairy and soy back in one at a time a week apart and see if you are reacting to either of them.

I was starting to bounce back but then wham. I'm wondering if it's dairy. I will just eat whole foods no grain or dairy for at least a few days. Then try the bread again and see. Dairy intolerance is big in my family so.....

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.

    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
