I don't have a quick fix, but it's maybe a fix. Keeping a food/symptom journal might show that the bloating corresponds to certain food(s). It wouldn't necessarily mean those foods are off-limits forever.

Also, are you taking probiotics? If not, they could help.

Celiac 1st diagnosed as a toddler, in the 60s. Docs then, between bloodletting & leech-tending, said "he'll grow out of it" & I was back on gluten & mostly fine for 30yrs.

Gluten-free since 12-03
Dairy-free since 10-04
Soy-free since 5-07

Hi Gemme,

You can try peppermint tea for bloating. It helps get the gas out/belching. It is not a cure for the cause though. A food journal like Tom said can help with that. Probiotics and low sugar/low carbs can help also. Digestive enzymes may help. The big thing though is to eliminate the foods that are causing the reaction for a while. Have you eliminated dairy? That causes many people problems.

Hi Gemme,

Is your uric acid going up or is the elevated number from a umma (urine methymalonic acid) test? If it's uric acid I have no answer for you. Sorry. If it's the umma that means you have an active b12 and/or folic acid deficiency, even with supplements/injections.

Make sure your b12 supplements are METHYLcobalamin (preferably sublingual - under the tongue) not CYANOcobalamin. The inactive cyanocobalamin has to be converted to the active methylcobalamin. Being celiac we have malabsorption issues so we don't convert the b12 very well. If you take the methyl form via sublingual you don't even have to worry about absorption through the gut as it will be absorbed through the mucosa in the mouth.

B12 needs folate and vice versa. Make sure you're getting enough folic acid/folate. Again methylfolate (the already converted form of folic acid) is probably the better option. It is sometimes sold as Metafolin or Deplin. Or you might see it as 5-MTHF (methyl tetrahydrofolate).

I hope all that helps.

And this is my first post. Hi everyone. :P
