Results Of Me Going Gluten Free. ,questions...
0

4 posts in this topic

I've been off gluten totally for a little over two weeks.Some interesting results have come from this.Without going into detail lets just say my BM are no longer pale in color or smelly.Now I'm more regular and seemingly less bloated and more hungry than I used to be so I see all this as positive. Now I have a few questions for those who have been down this road before.I understand that people who are celiac develope other intolerences and or allergies because the intestine lining is frankly butchered from the attacks.With that said I still have one odd problem and that's muscle soreness/ fatgue.I believe I narrowed it down to one of three foods (eggs,potatoes,caffeine) as I'm already off dairy.My question is can those foods produce widespread muscle pain? Not fybro pain,but actual pain.The reason I ask these questions is I've read on numerous sites that one comes to crave the food(s) they are allergic to.I grave a lot ,potatoe chips and I mean a lot!! Ill eat a bag a day no problem.(kettle chips non gluten).Also I noticed that after I ate bacon&eggs Thursday,the very next day I had body pains (but I also ate chips everyday).I eat eggs sat/sun every week usually but would the symptoms keep going all week? Thanks for any answers

Potatoes belong to the nightshade family of foods (plants that grow at night - potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, etc.) and are known to be pro-inflammatory. You might try cutting out the potatoes, especially if you are craving them which, as you say, is often a sign of a toxic reaction. I do not eat any of the nightshade foods and it has made such a difference to my psoriatic arthritis. :)

It could be a matter of time too. I've had pretty bad joint pain in the past; the kind where it's difficult to hold a pen, and it hurts to carry a couple of paperbacks in a bag. I'm not sure if it was caused by celiac or other autoimmune problems (I have Hashi's and suspect another) but my joint pain has improved a great deal lately. If it was caused by celiac, it took over 6 months of eating gluten-free (and 4 months dairy free) before I saw any improvement. It actually got worse in the first few months on the gluten-free diet.

I would try cutting out potatoes for a few months and see if there is any improvement... It beats waiting 6 months like I did. LOL You might want to reduce caffeine too; high consumption of caffeine is often advised against for those with AI diseases.

Good luck. :)

    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I'm sure going to have a long talk with my doctor.  Then I'll find a new one that will support me and make sure that my daughter and I both have the proper testing done yearly.  
    • also:  glutendude - i don't get it.  shouldn't it be glutenfreedude?  lolz i eat out few and far between.  most of the times i've been glutened it's been eating out.  this weekend i'm getting my bacon cheeseburger on at red robin  i always get my 'good' waitress - lucky, i guess, paula takes good care of me   and i will eat at bonefish but they have a limited 'safe' menu.  look for places that have the 'GiG'  training they know their stuff.  mellow mushroom, melting pot, california pizza kitchen, pf changs are all supposed to be trained that way.  they know to avoid cc and change their gloves, etc.  
    • I have Common variable immune deficiency (CVID) which has impaired my IgA and my IgG. I have infusions monthly for immunoglobulins. I had a blood test for celiac which showed negative however, I have nearly every celiac symptom. Everything else I have been tested for and believe me I have been tested. Kidneys, Gallbladder, emptying studies, and on and on have all been o.k.    I did go partially gluten free once a long while ago and I did feel better. I wonder if I just go gluten free if it would make a big difference.
