You are likely eating differently. Maybe more fiber? Less fiber? More green veggies? That sort of thing.

My doctor said to me that your body is now better able to tell you when it doesn't like something. I am glad for indications that are clear rather than constant feeling something is wrong without a way to resolve it. The symptoms will help you heal on your way.

Get better!

I felt a bit worse the first few weeks from withdrawl, or just getting used to slightly different eating. Hang in there. I bet it will pass before March hits.

I AMA vegetarian do my diets has always been rich in healthy whole foods. The only main change is no gluten products an substituting gluten-free breads and pastas. I feel miserable every time I eat and NEVER had gastrointestinal issues before when I did eat gluten. I feel like this is pointless... I'm so frustrated

Are there ingredients in those gluten free breads and pastas that you might never have eaten before? Your body could just be adjusting to a new diet.

Hi Vegetable murderer, (sorry bad joke :) )

"Silent celiac" is when a person has celiac but has no obvious GI symptoms. It doesn't mean that damage is not happening to the body, either the gut or some other body area. What does mean something is you developed symptoms when you stopped eating gluten. Going gluten-free shoudn't cause any reaction in a person who has no response to gluten. The fact that your digestion changed ( in your case got worse) means that something about gluten is an issue. So the gluten-free diet is not pointless for you. Soy is another food that you should probably avoid for a while at least.

Most likely your gut is trying to hela now. That can cause a lot of upset as bacteria balances change and tissue starts to regenerate, enzymes start to be produced again etc. Taking pro-biotics and digestive enymes may help. Also avoiding dairy, sugars and starchy foods. A simple diet is a good thing for a sick gut. I suggest you take it easy on thr gluten-free processed foods like bread s etc for a month or so. Instead try something simple like Mission brand corn tortillas which have only a few ingredients and are gluten-free. Remember to check your vitamin pills and meds for gluten also.

Hopefully you don't react to flax meal the way I do. It took me forever to figure that one out, and they put it in everything. :rolleyes: Flaxmeal this, flaxmeal that, bleah. :P
Last year I went oats-in- same- facility reactive. :rolleyes: <_<
I remember the first time I had some soy flour cookies. I thought I was going to die. It just reinforced that I shouldn't do cookies.

off topic, how did you get diagnosed if you had no symptoms? Why would anyone ever think to test you for celiac disease if you had no symptoms?
Anyways, when your gut is damaged you're going to have absorption problems. That means not only do you not get things being absorbed, but stuff stays in your intestines that otherwise wouldn't be there. Not only that celiacs, when eating gluten will actually absorb larger molecules that would otherwise never be absorbed. (Yes, I realize those statements are counter-intuitive, just read up about zonulin in celiacs and it should start to make sense.) I suspect your symptoms are your intestines getting more messed up but they will eventually get back to their proper working state...which they probably haven't been in in awhile.

There isn't gluten in Xantham or guar gum. Some one might have problems digesting it but it doesn't have gluten.
