Symptoms Worse After Going Gluten-Free
0

2 posts in this topic

Hi all,

I was biopsy-diagnosed about 5 weeks ago and started a strict gluten-free diet about a month ago. I felt grand for a few days, had my first solid BMs in months, and my fatigue has greatly improved, but for the past couple weeks all of my BMs have been voluminous, watery diarrhea -- no solids at all. I seem to need to go as soon as I wake up, immediately after eating, and sometimes inbetween meals, too (though I don't wake up during the night to go). I also sometimes have trouble getting to the bathroom on time.

I did have loose BMs before diagnosis, but they were always at least semi-solid. I know I need to see the doctor again, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had this experience or has any idea what might be happening.

I've replaced my toaster, pans, cutting board, etc., so I don't think cross-contamination is the issue. I'm experimenting with cutting out lactose, but it doesn't seem to be helping.

Thank you.

Do cut out dairy for a bit, all dairy not just lactose but also casien. What are you typically eating? It is best to go with whole foods while healing. If you haven't already make sure you have all your own condiments, nut butters, jellies etc. We do tend to become more sensitive to CC after we have gone gluten free and even small amounts from stuff like meds, baking or cooking with flour for others etc can be a problem.
