What Do You Think Would Help Me In The Morning, Kind Of Gross?
0

8 posts in this topic

I don't think it is gluten. It is kind of embarassing to ask, but I have to go number 2 3 times after I wake up. Is there something I could do, eat differently so I only have to do this once? It is holding me back from going back to work. I'm a school sub and you can't go to the bathroom if you sub and I don't want to say I can work until I can figure out how to eat to not have this problem? :blink:

Not gross- just a fact of life. :)

Do you mean D?? or firm BMs ??.

Because those are two different issues.

Do you take probiotics?

Your system may be trying to balance. (took me a while, but I used probiotics to speed things along)

This took some time, but resolved itself for me after a while. It can take a while to get the right fiber balance and as you heal, that balance changes.

Eating gets the system moving. Maybe eating as soon as you get up and having some warm tea or coffee, would get it moving earlier?

I guess you have the summer to work it out?

I was a three times a morning person. Not exactly D, but loose, and by the third time, looser. And the third time was always after eating breakfast. It changed pretty quickly, within a couple of weeks I think, after I went gluten-free.

But whenever I would eat salads or asparagus or sweet potatoes, there it was, back again. Maybe you're having trouble with too much fiber? I think for me it was pesticides. I could eat organic sweet potatoes but not grocery store ones.

Until just recently. I think my system healed enough to settle down and let me tolerate more. I still haven't tried salads again because I am taking a break from adding new foods for a while. I'm not taking any chances with this new-found good health. Maybe in the fall I'll try again.

I know coffee does me in and I need to get rid of it. It is just so hard. Thanks for your ideas. What should I eat for breakfast to try to lesson this situation? Is there a good gluten-free cereal or I just have no clue. I have to eat some fiber because I had a precancerous polup2 years before my celiac diagnosis. That Dr. told me I should be eating more, but then I get this problem. It is gross, but gets progressively looser. I have to drive my kids 20 minutes each morning to the gym so this is an issue. :huh:

Maybe some decaf in the morning or tea and wake up earlier and eat...affording you more time before work. Add you fiber intake later in the day, after your road "work" (It is road work, been there :P )

If I need to be somewhere when I'm out of routine, Immodium helps and relieves some of the anxiety too (which could add to the issue).

...just my little tidbit of suggestions. B)

Just try cutting the coffee out for a while and see if it helps? :)

I eat gluten-free Rice Krispies sometimes or I may also have some fruit and toast (I make my bread with a high fiber flour blend)with Pb or almond butter. I have smoothies with fruit, kale and ground flaxseed meal, which is great for fiber.

You can try a TBLSP. of ground flax seeds in 16 0z. of water twice a day --it's a good amount of fiber and Omega3s (along with your vegs and fruits and brown rice ) to keep things in check.

Hope this helps. Most of us have been where you are and we sympathize.

I have that problem with gluten cc. I had it big time pre diagnosis. It came and went for quite awhile when I was learning about what diet worked for me. It helped me to keep a food/symptom journal tracking everything I ate.

    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
