Topics I've Started

2 Years Gluten Free - Still Bloated

13 June 2012 - 04:10 PM

I was diagnosed with Celiac 2 years ago and immediately began the gluten free diet. For some reason, I still have a distended belly. (It's flat when I wake up, but after 15 minutes of moving around, even if I haven't eaten anything, it becomes distended.)
I am a young, healthy man in my mid-twenties. I exercise very actively.

Blood tests have ruled out gluten contamination. I am totally gluten free. I am also not lactose intolerant.

Every day, I take a multivitamin, probiotic (lactobacillus), and essential fatty acid supplement.

Has anyone also had these problems, even after being gluten free for so long?

I have been taking GasX to alleviative the bloating, but it doesn't help that much.

15 Months Gluten Free - Still Having Problems

15 November 2011 - 12:51 AM

I have been gluten free for 15 months. I am now 24 years old. I am a young man standing at 5 foot 9 inches and 200 pounds.
Since going on the diet, I cook all my food myself.
I have confirmed via blood test 3 months ago that I am not getting any hidden sources of gluten.
I have not lost any weight, despite swimming, running, and kickboxing three times a week and walking everyday.
As of one month ago, I have started limiting my calorie intake to 1400 calories.
I still have "celiac belly" due to severe bloating problems.
I take a multivitamin.

What gives????? What can I do?

How To Heal Fast?

20 September 2011 - 11:31 AM


I am 23 years old and I was diagnosed with Celiac over a year ago. I am somewhat better, but my energy level is not even close to where it should be.

For those who have completely healed from Celiac, what did you do that you think may have helped you heal quickly?

I've been taking multivitamnins, digestive enzymes, and iron supplements. I have also been exercising on a regular basis via yoga, swimming and running

1 Year Anniversary

12 September 2011 - 08:08 AM

So I was officially diagnosed about 13 months ago.
I am 23 years old.

Before Diagnosis: I was sleeping 15-18 hours a day, way too tired to work out. Eating like a pig.

Now: I sleep about 9-10 hours a day. I can do my routine as a student, and I can work out, but not with the kind of energy that would be expected of someone my age. For example, I can walk but not run, do light weightlifting, and pushups. I eat slightly less than I did before, but now its all very nutritious because I cook half of it.

My "celiac belly" is still there.

My weight hasn't really changed. It was 210-215 before diagnosis, and now its 200. As a male, I stand at 5 feet, 10 inches

When am I going to get better? My last bloodwork (6 months ago) said that I am not getting any gluten in my diet. I have been taking my multivitamin. What am I doing wrong?

Should I be going easy when I work out, or is it time to try to work up a sweat?
