Getting Tired

6 posts in this topic

I have been messing with my diet here and there testing out different things, some I have been lucky and happy :) I tried but most things I have regretted dearly :( ! I am going to take a break on trying different things for a while and try again in a couple months to expand my diet more than it is. I ate tonight at Golden Corral. I know stupid me but my husband likes it from time to time so I ate a salad and a piece of fish from the skillet fish, and some icecream with carmel from a pump. Now I am having issues with my stomach. I thought I was playing it safe. Not getting any of the hot foods and keeping to a salad, and a piece of fish. I was wrong!!! :(

I know I have only been on the diet for a few weeks, and I feel like I am giving up to early, and shouldn't be dealing with this many issues right off the bat but I am. Could I be over reacting? I guess but I don't like running to the bathroom within 30 minutes of leaving the table and then there is the bubbly belly for the rest of the night. :angry:

If everything you ate was indeed gluten-free, I would think the possibility of cross-contamination would be huge at Golden Corral.

It's only been a few weeks. There is a lot to learn. You need to be patient with yourself. It will be worth it in the end. I felt like I was aging in reverse for a long time as I got better and better. I kept finding new symptoms which I hadn't even known were caused by gluten. It was worth every bit of frustration and difficulty. Good luck.

Thnaks, for your encouragement. I dont want to go back to gluten.. ever! :D

I'm just feeling frustrated by all the things that are making me sick. I knew doing this there would be a learning curve. My parents are gluten free and have been for 10 years now. I know that thy cheat a little bit here and there they tell me that they do, it took them 5 years to be able to eat small amounts of gluten without having issues. (small amounts would mean eating something like the filling out of a pie and leaving the crust, sushi the black wrap has wheat starch in it, most fast food restaurants due to CC) I know its going to take some time, I have the hardest time around my husband, its not his fault but he loves to eat and that used to be one of our things going out to eat, but now it seems that's out the door for the most part. (hubby works out of town through the week)

I chuckled at your comment of( "over re-acting).. I think as humans we think of the worse & hope for the best...

The more serious you are at the beginnning the better you will be at the end ...

CC is big anywhere you eat out but salad bars have tons of CC. Maybe you should have spoken to the mgr &asked if you could have a salad with whatever veggies from the storage bucket, still not safe but better than salad from the bar area....not even sure they would do this...never hurts to ask..

You are still so new to this lifestyle change... We all wish it could easy & fast but for most NOT... Also keep it simple to give your body a chance to do its healing..Tyr not to focus on what you can't do or eat but what you can have... Your mental attitude is just as important as healing your intestinal issues..body, mind & spirit all three must be in order for a complete healing to take place...

Take a deep breath, try to relax a little & enjoy knowing you are on your way to better health..positive thinking please.....

hugs

I am doing my best to stay positive but when I get hit with unexpected CC (ok slightly expected) I get kinds discouraged. I'm thinking its time to put my adventurous side, aside and just stick to the basics and eat at home for a while.

    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.
