Topics I've Started

3 Months Gluten-Free, Feel Like I'm Dying

10 March 2013 - 01:30 PM

I'm nearly 3 months out from my gluten free diet.  Things have been really rough for me. I'm starting to discover that fruit and starch and other high carb foods are not really good for me, especially if I eat too many of them.  I'm still very skinny.

 

I also discovered that I develop new allergies to foods if I eat them too much.  An IgE test proved it, I developed allergies to 3 vegetables I had been eating recently up until the appointment.

 

Today I just feel so anxious and sick.  I just can't wait for this day to end.  I know there's alot more people here that have it worse than I do too, but sometimes I just feel like I'm dying.

 

Edit: Anyone have to take iron supplements on top of this diet?  Wow, they hurt so much. >.>


Dextrose In Salt?

17 February 2013 - 04:48 PM

Hey everyone,

I just noticed on my Publix Iodized salt one of the ingredients is dextrose. Does anyone know if this is related to gluten? If not where does it come from?

Fat Malabsorption - What To Do

25 January 2013 - 01:15 PM

Hey everyone. I'm celiac and I've been on a gluten-free diet since the middle of December. I think I am having issues with fat absorption. Whenever I eat a high fat meal, about 2 hours later I get nausea that lasts for hours. I have also had some D occasionally from it.

I just wonder what is the best thing for me to do at this point? I don't want to avoid all fat since I think I need to absorb some fat (good fat vs bad fat). However I think that eating high fat meals are irritating my intestines, which I don't want to happen. Should I try to avoid as much fat as possible since it doesn't get absorbed well, or should I try to eat some even if it might give me D or intestinal irritation?

Terrible Abdominal Pain After Gluten-Free

15 January 2013 - 05:40 PM

I'm in terrible pain right now. It feels like something is shredding my insides. I have never felt pain this bad when I was on gluten (I have biopsy-confirmed celiac). I've been gluten free and dairy free since 12/12/12. I also take 3 iron pills a day for anemia. Could the supplements be causing this? I've also been taking them for many months and haven't had this kind of pain before.

Gluten-Free Salmon

23 December 2012 - 02:07 PM

Does anyone know where I can get gluten-free, plain salmon? I read about the salmon in the grocery stores having some food coloring added to the meat to make it pink. Does the pink coloring have any dubious ingredients in it?

I'd like to get gluten-free salmon from from Publix, Whole Foods, Walmart, or Fresh Market. Does anyone buy salmon from either of these places?
