Newly Gluten Free, Still Having Problems?

5 posts in this topic

Hi :)

I recently had a blood test done, no results yet.

The blood test won't tell me if I have celiacs (of course, according to my doctor, since I react pretty soon after ingesting gluten and all my vital levels were wonky she does suspect celiacs), but it will tell me if I have some of the 96 allergies I was tested for.

I've been gluten free off and on for about a year. This all started after I began birth control before getting married in 2010. This September, things started getting bad. Weight gain, bloating, nausea.. as well as eczema flair ups, hair loss, insomnia, body aches, severe constipation. the list goes on..

I thought I was pregnant, because I stopped the birth control thinking it was that. Nope, not pregnant.

I've cut out gluten and dairy (suspecting a whey allergy..) and I've been very strict.. new seasonings for food, condiments, stopped drinking coffee for goodness sake!! (can't take coffee without a little cream!!)

anyways, a week into it and I'm really not feeling that great.

My stomach feels torn up.. like I have a knife stuck and twisting in my stomach! It goes away if I don't eat for a while, but as soon as I eat something it's back.

I'm taking L-glutamine and aloe pills..sucking down the peppermint tea!!.. a friend of mine who has celiacs suggested Leaky Gut..

I'm feeling hopeless :( anybody have some ideas??

Any blood tests for celiac at this point will probably come back negative seeing as you've been off and on it.

But it could be.

Are you sure there is no cross contamination? Did you totally clean out your kitchen? Get rid of anything that might have gluten on/in it? Wooden cutting board? Toaster? Tub of butter or margarine? Peanut butter, jelly, condiments? Do you have a shared kitchen?

And even if you did do these things, a week isn't a very long time. It can take a while for the damage to heal. Just try to keep your diet as clean as possible and for the time being eat only whole foods such as plain meat, fish, vegetables, fruits, brown rice, etc.

I share a kitchen with my husband. But we're very careful to not CC my food; Separate pans, utensils, counters.

I don't really eat PB, bread or jelly, and I bought all gluten-free condiments. I ate at Applebees on Sunday, but this pain is in my intestines. I know I could just be healing, so maybe is part of the process...

I eat a pretty whole foods diet, so I guess I'm doing all I can :)
