I have been gluten free for two months. I was relatively asymptomatic prior to my diagnosis - it was a bone density specialist who suspected and had me tested for Celiac. I can't say that I feel any differently after two months- but again I didn't feel poorly before going gluten free. However - I do notice after most meals I feel quite bloated. Is this typical? It's hard for me to know if I've been glutened - since I never really had the classic symptoms - but I was thinking that after two months being gluten free ( I think) - that I shouldn't be feeling bloated so often.

For some people the bloating seems to subside right away. I have been gluten free 6 months and am just begining to notice my bloating changing. Sometimes I am bloated and sometimes I am not. I also think my bloating is more like 4 months pregnant rather than 5. That is an improvement. My body seems to be working really hard on recovery. I keep hearing tummy growling, feel pangs, so the deflating helps to make it easier to bear.

There, I dared to tackle this question. I am on an intense supplement program and have an active life.

It took me about 2 months for my overall bloating to go away. The extreme bloat I would get following a gluteny meal stopped immediately.

That being said, if I don't eat well I do get bloated; it's not extreme but I notice it. Milk products bloat me up. Deli meats get me as well. Lately i've been eating too much halloween chocolate and my tummy is a bit bloated.

I also see bloat around my face when this happens.

best wishes.

Mine seems to come and go and I haven't pegged it to any particular food yet. However, the bloat from my gluten-free diet is much different from what I felt while still eating gluten-rich foods. When i got glutened recently I felt like someone was pumping air into my insides and it was a sense of feeling like I had a basketball hiding under my shirt. But outwardly there were no signs at all of bloating. Crazy stuff!

I've been gluten-free for almost 4 months and still have it, along with the weight gain I had instant issues with...every day I hope it will start to turn around, but it has yet to!

For me the bloating didn"t go away till i removed all traces of dairy from my diet, I was also 2 months into gluten-free when i removed dairy as a sugestion from a fellow forum member.

Thanks all- I still eat dairy - almost daily - yogurt, cheese - since I am also dealing with osteoporosis. I will try to be a bit more aware when this bloat happens. I know it's usually after a meal - even if the meal is primarily salads or fruit.

You might try out Lactaid chewable tablets with your dairy. For me, it helps a lot. I also avoid the dairy products with the most lactose (milk & ice cream) and stick to hard cheese and other lower-lactose foods.

I'm going on four months gluten-free and am just getting on-off bloating which is way better than the fulltime inflation I felt before. It's also shrunk from basketball to a small soccer ball lol...
