Since eating gluten-free, my stomach has been reacting to everything I put in it.. My dietician now thinks I may be lactose intolerant as well as having Celiac. I feel like I can't even eat anything . Every time I put something in my mouth, I get either heartburn or gas pains. I have been constipated and bloated. I have been seeing a dietician for two weeks now to eat gluten-free and lose weight and instead of losing, I have gained two pounds. SHe is not worried about it as she said it is either muscle (I do alot of weight lifting) or water. It is very depressing as I am trying to lose the 20 pounds I have gained since I discovered this disease four years ago.
Anyway, I never ate gluten-free, because I had no obvious stomach problems. Now that I am adhering to a gluten-free diet, I seem to have nothing but problems! My dietician wants me to take several digestive enzymes such as Pro- Biotic and Digest - a lot. She also wants me to take Ultra lactaid when I eat lactose products and Preleif when I eat acidy foods. Al these supplements plus all the gluten-free products are expensive!
WHy would my tummy be so sensitive now that I am gluten-free? Is that a good thing that means I am actually digesting my food now and something that will resolve itself or is it something that will get worse. ?
