Feeling Better. Can Rice Cause Problems?
0

10 posts in this topic

I've been gluten-free for about 6 weeks now, and feeling quite a lot better, I haven't been medically diagnosed, bnut my mum has it and I think its been passed to me. I feel quite a bit better, the BAD flatulence has totally gone since the new diet, the 'C' is getting better and the feeling of fullness all day long is decreasing!:D I'm just wondering does anyone have problems with rice? It seems like when I eat it, it comes out in my stool(yuck I know). I've had my stool tested all came back ok. Also I seem to be more constipated after rice. Is this normal? Has anyone else experienced this?

Yes. Rice turns out to be too hard on my gut. I'm on a grain-free diet, but I don't have problem with corn as much as I have with rice.

Ahhh okay thanks. Are you going to go back on grains in the dfuture? I guess gluten-free bread and pasta causes you problems then?

I intend to go back to grains in the future, but maybe not so close future. I created tons of several other intolerances because I kept insisting on grains and things I couldn't tolerate (now I can't eat almonds or flaxseed or too many eggs) and there's a lot of healing to do.

And yes, my diet is bread and pasta free. Basically I eat fruit, meat, veggies, eggs and juice.

My super sensitive daughter could eat white rice but not brown. Even white rice will cause her some problems occasionally.

I also have a question about this. It seems when I accidentaly get "glutened" I can't keep anything but meat (esp wild game) in my system. EVERYTHING else comes out without being digested. Is this common with everyone else?

Just a tip, it wont come out in one piece in your stool if you chew it into juice before you swallow it :!) 50% of the problem all of us have/had in the first place is not chewing food like those silly slow eaters we used to laugh at.. Who is laughing now :)?? not me that's for sure, I now eat slower than my painfully slow eating wife.

Maisie, yes the more organy and less muscle and in general more gross the meat the better it digests. Chicken doesn't digest as well as red meat, not even close for me. Fish is somewhere in between. Red meat seems to induce high powered stomach acid after a couple of days too. that's good, not sure why that happens but that's what it does to me. I actually ate wheat the other day for the first time in 3 years and suprise suprise.. it did absolutely nothing to me.. Got really sick as usual eating corn the day after for a crazy test though :P. Just proves once you have gone long enough to have no antibodies to something any more it can't hurt you any more either (for a while..)

After reading these post, I'm wondering if anyone has checked out 'leaky gut syndrome'? It's what gluten does to our digestion. It took a 10 week cleanse to repair my intestines. If the intestine repairs, then initially gluten and other offenders, in my case, casein and soy, don't seem to cause a problem! However, if you continue even an occasional use, the intestine breaks down again! Please look up leaky gut and please be careful!

Muse, 10 weeks is not long enough for someone who's really sick with leaky gut, it takes more like 9 months being very strict. Your body doesn't forget about antibodies to food proteins overnight. Your gut is lined with mast cells and when they see a protein they know about, it's all action to get rid of it... even if your gut is healed.. technically you will still get sick for as long as you have antibodies to the food protein. It's a months or years long process

    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
