Questions For You All? Leaky Gut?

Hello everyone! I've been gluten-free, nut free, soy free and tomato free. I still have bloating in the evenings. Sometimes more than others. It seems I cannot eat raw veggies or anything raw, it is worse then. I love fresh veggies and fruit, but can only do berries. My bloat seems to come on at the same time of night with mild cramping. Am I totally crazy or does this sound familiar. Any ideas or suggestions welcomed!

Two years in, I was in much the same place as you, minus a few more foods. It was suggested I still had a leaky gut and I dismissed the idea after all I had done and all the foods I had eliminated and all the supplements I had taken. Nevertheless, on expert advice, I went on a fairly involved supplementation program, the most important of which I believe was the probiotic VSL#3. Since that time I have not "lost" any more foods, can tolerate corn starch and potato starch (just keep me away from the lectins) and soy lecithin, which has simplified my life a lot. And funnily enough, since this past summer when I was on a nasogastric feeding tube being fed something my husband approved as safe for me (some kind of non-corn, non-gluten slurry :P ) my residual bloating and belching seems to have gone away :ph34r: Touching wood whilst keying that in. VSL#3 is expensive, but for me I believe it is what worked to finally heal me up.

After 18 months on a strict gluten-free diet and still having problems, a doctor recommended that I put one scoop of Metagenics UltraClear Sustain Medical Food into my smoothie every day. After two weeks, I felt as though I'd never had celiac. Life was good...and my digestion was great.

    • Can treatment for Giardia reverse active Celiac
      So interesting!  Please keep us posted!  
    • Pre Biopsy gluten intake
      Here is a link that will tell you what each of the major celiac disease centers recommend. I reference this site because the woman writing it is a doctor herself who has celiac disease and is also a member of this site. She's done the research for us & put it all together in one post: http://www.thepatientceliac.com/2014/07/06/hope-for-a-less-challenging-gluten-challenge/
    • Sjogren's, Celiac, or both?
      Thanks for the input! cyclinglady - I've been trying not to be mad at my GP for ruling out Celiac at a time when I didn't know any better, but now I'm PO'd! Going back on gluten is going to suck. I was accidentally exposed last week, and I didn't go to the bathroom for two days, had my first headache in months, and wanted to sleep all day. Eight to 12 weeks sounds awful! I wish she would have done that test when she was taking blood by the pint for all sorts of stuff I didn't have. Blerg. ravenu5 - Thanks for sharing about your constipation. I didn't know how normal it was to not have diarrhea. But my constipation was also basically untreatable by normal means. I used to laugh when people suggested prunes. I could have probably eaten them by the bucket (though the most I ever tried at once was a dozen or so). I was so shocked when I started going to the bathroom regularly after eliminating gluten. The last time going to the bathroom wasn't an issue for me was when I was a kid! Gemini - It's nice to hear from someone else with Sjogren's! I haven't met anyone else in real life with Sjogren's, and I've never posted on a forum before. And thank you for being sorry about my miscarriage. It super-duper sucked. The miscarriage drove me to a third rheumatologist because I felt like I needed to know what was wrong with me. With two healthy, full-term pregnancies in the last five years and no history of problems, my risk of miscarriage was low, and I felt like the timing (all these new symptoms and the miscarriage) probably wasn't a coincidence. (But my kids have been a huge comfort. My youngest turned a year old the day after the miscarriage, and I feel so terrible for anyone who has to go through a miscarriage without a baby to cuddle. I don't know how it's done!) The first two rheumatologists I went to after my positive ANA and SSA said I didn't have Sjogren's! (Is there a space on this forum for doctor rants?) Anyway, Thank you so much for sharing with me. It's really nice to hear other voices on these things.  
    • blistex etc
      I use Blistex and I can tell you it's gluten free. I happen to use this one because I'm sensitive to sunscreen plus I just like a simple product without a lot of crud in it. http://www.blistex.com/products/simple-and-sensitive/ BTW, here's a reference from Jan. 2014 where Blistex responded: Blistex:  This company got back to me on January 31st, 2014.  They said “…all of our Blistex lip care products are gluten-free; meaning that they are free from wheat, rye, barley, and oats.” Here's a link to the site which reported this. They list numerous other lip products as well. http://www.thesavvyceliac.com/2014/01/30/gluten-free-lip-balm-mission-impossible/
    • Pre Biopsy gluten intake
      I was recommended to take at least 10g of gluten daily prior to the endoscopy.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
