Fat Malabsorption - What To Do
0

4 posts in this topic

Hey everyone. I'm celiac and I've been on a gluten-free diet since the middle of December. I think I am having issues with fat absorption. Whenever I eat a high fat meal, about 2 hours later I get nausea that lasts for hours. I have also had some D occasionally from it.

I just wonder what is the best thing for me to do at this point? I don't want to avoid all fat since I think I need to absorb some fat (good fat vs bad fat). However I think that eating high fat meals are irritating my intestines, which I don't want to happen. Should I try to avoid as much fat as possible since it doesn't get absorbed well, or should I try to eat some even if it might give me D or intestinal irritation?

I personally feel that some digestive enzymes would help the most, preferably animal-derived, with lipase being the most important. Get the kind that you take with every meal. You need enzymes to break down the fats and gluten can often cause pancreatic insufficiency. You might try some betaine HCl as well. Don't start taking them both at the same time or you won't know which is or isn't helping. :)

My nutritionist has identified this a problem for me. I've found that I can only take very small amounts of fat at a time...as in 1/8 of an avocado or 4 pecan halves. I have to work hard to make sure the fat I am ingesting is healthy fat...I found that once I upped my intake of lean protein I felt better. You should probably discuss it with your doctor or nutritionist if you can since they may be able to help you figure out what works best for your body at this point.

Wow I think I can handle more than that even...

I am going to mention it to my doctor next time I see him and I will try the enzymes too.
