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.

    • Tell your medical doctor that you want a full Celiac panel before you go gluten-free.  A family history of Celiac should be enough reason to run one every couple of years.  The stool tests aren't considered medically valid, so they probably won't accept those.  It would be good to know if you actually have Celiac.  That would tell you how careful you have to be with gluten consumption.  If you don't have Celiac, it will make your life easier...you can still be gluten-free but you might be able to do things like take a burger off a bun and eat at most restaurants safely.
    • Sure, if you are feeling better from the Celiac, now you might notice other things you didn't before.     a very real possibility is that you have changed your diet and are now eating something you didn't eat much of before.  Or you are eating larger or smaller amounts of protein or fiber....that sort of thing
    • This board is quite old but I'm hoping someone can continue on this topic. I am 61 years old and in all my life and doctors' visits, I have never had a western doctor ask me if I have a family history of celiac or suggest a gluten free diet. In all honesty, I have only started having what could be considered "gluten sensitive" symptoms within the past 2 years - chronic, unexplained bouts of diarrhea, mainly. Although bloodwork has shown in the past 2 years I now have high cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure and a bone density scan showed osteopenia. My PCP put me on meds for everything, of course. I recently began seeing a naturopath - and when I was running down my health history and list of symptoms she immediately asked about the family history of celiac. My father was positively diagnosed, through biopsy, with celiac sprue about 25 years ago, when nobody talked about gluten sensitivity. Anyway, she had me do the full panel testing at Enterolab. I have one celiac gene and a gene that indicates neurological manifestations of gluten sensitivity (I have long been plagued with panic attacks and depression). I also showed extremely high (215 units, below 10 is normal) for fecal anti-gliadin and varying high results for dairy, eggs and soy. My fat malabsorption stool test also tested high (431 units and normal is less than 300). The interpretation from Enterolab and my naturopath both strongly advised I eliminate gluten from my diet for the rest of my life. Naturopath said after a year or two I may be able to try introducing limited dairy, eggs and soy back; but not until the glutin response is completely under control. I am really struggling with this. Everyone I've talked to (including adult children, spouse, other family members, friends) is skeptical about me making such a radical change in my (our) diets based on these results. They seem to view gluten sensitivity as a "fad" and think I am going off the deep end. "Get a second opinion" - or "talk to your PCP about it". I've read enough to know that my PCP will not be of much help. And since I really only had one irritating symptom that could be related to gluten sensitivity, it's not like my life will be radically improved by going gluten free. I guess I could choose to ignore the test results - for now. I'm trying to view going gluten, dairy, egg and soy free as preventative and something that will contribute to a healthier life as I age. But it's so hard ... especially when the people who mean the most to me think I'm over-reacting and kind of cuckoo. Can anyone help me out here? I feel so alone ...  
    • Hello everybody, I'm new to the forum but am so happy to have found somewhere where people living with coeliac can share their thoughts! I've only been gluten-free for two weeks.  About three days in, I started experiencing awful heartburn which hasnt let up and I'm wondering if anyone else had this after giving up gluten? It wasn't a typical symptom for me before so feeling very uncomfortable.  I am not due to see my gastro consultant again until December and my GP (who was about as helpful as a chocolate teapot!) just gave me lansoprazole (its a PPI) which isnt even touching it.  Just wondering if giving up gluten is unmasking other symptoms or if this is a normal or common withdrawal effect?  I feel like burping/belching could help but its something I've never been able to physically do. Im in my early 30s so hoping its not another thing... Any advice would be appreciated A
    • O sorry. Negative biopsy. But this was months ago but i have no energy. My teeth are rotting i feel sick all the time. And i was told by someone who has celiac that it can also be difficult to have a diagnosis cause you would have to eat 6 pieces of bread for 6 weeks in order to get a proper diagnosis. And i just know that something is up
