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

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
