Anyone Have Trouble With Probiotics?
0

10 posts in this topic

So as some of you know I have been having trouble again after 2 years gluten free, but had got cc'd several times in a row. So started (after this big flare up) on probiotics and back on nexium and then later gastric enzymes. So then I was still having problems so tried grain and dairy free for a few days. Nothing was helping. I felt like I was taking more and more pills so I stopped everything. And then things got better. I added back nexium ,that is ok. I suspect the probiotics. Can that be possible? Was taking culturelle and acidophilous. I was to the point with bloating that I couldn't even sleep. Since I stopped taking them that is so much better. I know that can be a common reaction in the first few days of starting probiotics but was on them about 3 weeks. Tried dairy again today and did fine. Could this be? What should I do??

When first diagnosed, I tried probiotic and it did not settle with me well.

My pro biotics had dairy. I stopped it for a month and found one which did not contain dairy and continued with no issue.

I assume you have checked you meds. Even generics change frequently.

But, as we all know, not all roads lead to gluten. ;)

I started using align. Started having setbacks about the same time with no change in diet. I quit eating gluten March 12 2012 so still fairly new to this. I have most of the GI problems which are taking longer to improve on than I had hoped.

I had to switch to a 'vegan formula' one because I was getting dairy symptoms from regular ones.

So I use the green-topped PB8 from WhFds. Blue top is regular.

What brand of probiotics was it? Could there be cc problems?

If that's for me it was multiple brands & my dairy symptoms are easily distinguishable from gluten symptoms.

Is your diet high in sugars or the processed gluten-free subs? This will "feed" the bad bacteria that the probiotics are trying to get rid of which will make a little "war" in your digestive system.

Don't eat a lot of sugar unless you count natural sugars as in fruit. I eat the occasional schar chibata roll. None this week even. I don't like most of the gluten-free subs and never liked sweets. See the doc next week I'm hoping we can figure something out.

I cannot take probiotics with FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides) in them, I get a lot of gut pain.

    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Hi everybody, I'm a 20 year old male, diagnosed with Celiac in February via biopsy, after suffering with progressively worsening symptoms for around a year. I had the blood test for Celiac in June 2015, which came back negative. My main issue pre-diagnosis was a feeling of uncomfortable fullness after eating small amounts which became more and more severe to the point where I was hospitalised in January with malnutrition and severe weight loss. I was placed on a NG feeding tube whilst in hospital as I was struggling to eat at all by this point (even a bowl of cereal led to hours of discomfort - the only comparison I can use to describe the feeling was as if there was a brick sitting in my stomach after eating). An endoscopy I had whilst in hospital showed I had Celiac (flattened villi with inflammation) and follow-up gene test was positive. After a couple of months at home on the NG tube, I found I was able to eat small amounts of food again with some symptoms but not of the severity I was experiencing previously. It seemed as if the time spent on the tube in addition to the gluten-free diet had allowed some healing to take place. I was able to eat enough to maintain my weight and came off the tube completely. My symptoms are similar now to when I came off the tube about 6 weeks ago, but I can cope with it for the moment until it heals fully. It has been a very difficult year but I'm pleased to see some progress now. Currently, however, I am having problems tolerating food in the morning. I had been having Tesco gluten-free cornflakes with milk for breakfast and finding that OK, however I think the recipe may have been changed as the texture/taste became more coarse and I suddenly noticed the symptoms were considerably worse after eating them and upset my stomach for the rest of the day. I tried gluten-free rice krispies and milk, again without success. I am not lactose intolerant as milk and cheese don't cause problems for me and milk actually seems to settle my stomach in the morning, as when I tried toast on its own, it was much worse than milk and cereal. Has anyone had similar issues early in the day or got any tips or advice for what to eat/drink with Celiac/intestinal inflammation in the morning? Thank you for your help. 
    • My doctor suspects Coeliac Disease ?
      Several conditions other than Celiac, can elevate ttg readings including autoimmune diseases, a parasitic disease/infection etc. Also for some patients the ttg can be a false positive. Which is why I think its helpful to have the full panel, to make an interpretation.  Your GI/Gut specialistic can run the full panel on the NHS.  Which is what they did for me before the biopsy.   
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Several conditions can cause increased lymphocytes in the duodenum including Celiac.  The blood test will help confirm /rule out Celiac. If your villi is normal along with negative celiac blood test, then this would make celiac unlikely. Do you know which blood test has been requested now and two years ago?  Its possible that something could have been missed if the full celiac blood panel was not run.

    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      Hello... 3 weeks ago I was diagnosed with Celiac. Looking at the various flours used to replace traditional flour is a bit overwhelming. I have a Retsel grain mill and I'm considering milling my own gluten-free flour. I have a few questions. First and foremost, would it be cost effective? Obviously, buying flour already processed is more convenient but terribly expensive. Does anyone here have experience with how accessible the ingredients are to do the milling yourself? Rice is readily accessible as well as many varieties of beans. What about milling coconut flour and some of the more exotic flours? Secondly, I'm wondering if milling at home will produce a fine enough product to be comparable to what can be purchased in store. Any experiences or suggestions would be appreciated.

      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.
