What Do You Eat When You Have An Upset Stomach
0

8 posts in this topic

I am recently new to gluten free eating and I need help. Today I have a very upset stomach, probably related to ulcerative colitis. Normally I would eat some toast or some saltine crackers to calm my tummy. Now that I am gluten free I have no idea what to eat. Any thoughts or suggestions? I have tried gluten free bread recently, and I am not really a fan of the taste or texture. Thanks!

If saltines used to work then I would suggest gluten free pretzels - glutino makes some good ones as goes ener-g. because of the crunchy texture of pretzels I can't really tell a difference from normal. I am a colitis sufferer as well. Have you tried herbal teas? I found those to work well to settle my tummy too.

Sipping water slowly, drinking herbal teas (peppermint tea, or bits of fresh ginger in hot water with lemon) and eating some gluten free rice cakes or gluten free crackers helps!

I always wake feeling nauseas, drinking probiotic yoghurt always helps me as does fresh fruits. Generally anything simple, easy to digest and healthy!

Good luck and feel better soon! K x

I'm wierd, I eat spicy food when I don't feel good. I make chicken noodle soup full of pepper or curry beef stew. But don't count on this working for you, if you try it, take it slow. I'm pretty sure I'm a freak of nature.

Sorry that happened!

I like white rice with just a little salt and butter or olive oil.

Mashed potatoes or polenta/grits. You could also eat a baked potato or spagetti squash.

I also agree with the gluten-free pretzels. I can't tell them from regular pretzels and would eat them everyday if they were good for me.

I also drink gallons of mint tea. Pepto Bismal also works for me in the early stages if I'm queasy with an upset stomach.

When I start to feel better, I eat gluten-free mac-n-cheese, but that's not good if you're still heeling and might have trouble with dairy and/or fat.

Thank you so much for all the helpful suggestions. I ended up having a baked potato because I just happened to have some of those at home. I will have to check my local stores to see if I can find a few of the other things mentioned as well. Thanks again, appreciate all the help and kind words!

This may be a silly question....but, have you tried the gluten free bread toasted? And actually, the first question should be "are you eating Udi's bread?" If you're eating anything else stop immediately and go buy Udi's. lol.. :P But if it is Udi's and you haven't tried it toasted, see if that works. As good as it is I can't eat it just plain, I have to toast it.

Otherwise, all good suggestions by the other people who have replied. I can't remember if anyone suggested sweet potatoes. If not, try some sweet potatoes. I'm sure I lived on sweet potatoes, regular potatoes, rice, tea, and plain chicken breast for several weeks while my body was healing.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
