Topics I've Started

Can Celiac Disease Be Related To Small Bowl Obstruction?

13 August 2012 - 02:12 AM

I have been gluten free since February 2012 after a biopsy diagnosed celiac disease. Recently, I experience stomach pain that was so intense (nothing like I had ever experienced before) and went to urgent care where they then rushed me to the emergency room and I was admitted to the hospital with a diagnosis of a small bowl obstruction.

Reading about small bowl obstructions, a main risk factor is a prior stomach surgery which I have never had. So I was wondering if celiac disease could have been the cause.

They also said my tests showed my small intestine was twisted, could this have also been related to celiac disease.

Soy Intolerance, Questions

29 June 2012 - 05:02 PM

I have an intolerance to soy in addition to celiac. I am giving up soy but see it is in so many foods.

For those who do not eat soy do to an intolerance, do you avoid all forms of soy?

Also are there any good marinades that do not contain soy? I eat a lot of chicken and frequently marinade it but all my gluten free marinades contain soy as an ingredient

Need To Vent, Having A Hard Time

26 April 2012 - 07:37 AM

I was doing fine with all the gluten filled goodies people bring into work. But this week it is really bothering me. It is not that there are more goodies this week than any other week but I am bothered by it more. I want to literally scream to my co-workers stop talking about food all the time and the next time to have a pizza party. Today I wanted to throw the chocolate cake in the trash that was sitting in the kitchen. Then today they are arranging two teams for a contest on Monday, and the winner gets pizza.

I am not sure why it is bothering me so much this week. Maybe it is finally hitting me that my whole life and way of eating has changed (I was diagnosed in late February 2012). Or this week after still having problems I cut out caesin, lactose, soy, etc (will be adding those back in later to see what may be also causing problems) and I am only eating naturally gluten free foods (so I can't have gluten free brownie).

Thanks for listening. I just needed to vent to people who understand.

Gluten Free Food But Says Less Than 20 Ppm Gluten? What Does That Mean?

23 April 2012 - 12:57 PM

I was diagnosed with celiac disease in late February 2012 after a positive biopsy. The symptoms got better at first then returned. So next step I cut out lactose and soy, still having symptoms. This weekend I was eating blue diamond crackers which were label gluten free but noticed on the box in very small print, tested to contain less than 20 ppm of gluten. So this got me wondering if the reason I am still having symptoms is because some of the labeled "gluten free" items I have eaten are not in fact truly gluten free. For the most part I have been avoiding any processed foods but with my work schedule it is a lot easier to pack lunch that does not have to be kept in the frig and snacks that are labeled gluten free like these crackers, rice cakes, etc. The processed gluten free labeled foods are a lot easier to take for lunch and snacks on work days.

So I am wondering if I am possibly still experiencing symptoms because I am getting gluten from these foods.

Any thoughts?

A Month Since Diagnosed With Celiac Now Lactose And Soy Free

01 April 2012 - 07:09 AM

It has been a little over a month since I was diagnosed with celiac disease and went gluten free. I improved but was still having problems so now the GI wants me to be lactose and soy free as well. When I was a baby I had a soy allergy but out grew it, the doctor said I may have redeveloped my soy allergy. As for lactose he said a lot of celiacs can not tolerate lactose especially when first diagnosed. I am finding it harder to avoid soy than gluten. Avoiding lactose is not hard as there a lot of lactose free products on the market but it seems soy is in everything.
