In Topic: How Long Does Gluten Free Diet Take To Work And Clear From Body?

09 May 2013 - 08:06 AM

I just had stomach cramps and diarrhea whenever I ate gluten and later on I had really bad acid reflux and permanent bloating and just felt generally like I was dying, I honestly didn't feel like I was going to live more than a couple more months at the time I finally gave up eating gluten, I was pretty sick. I used to get swollen hands and pins and needles. You could be deficient in something else, once your gut stops absorbing food you get deficient in lots of things. I haven't had stomach cramps or diarrhea for a couple years now but for the last year or so I was having a persistent burning pain in the guts, it's hard to say exactly how much pain that was because I was used to it, but you really had to twist the skin on my arm A LOT to induce enough pain elsewhere to make me not notice the gut pain, so I'm figuring it was pretty bad. It didn't really bother me though because like I said, I was used to it. It's gone now though.

gluten free diet is hard to stick like how long on the gluten free diet did it take for it all to settle down?? my guts feel like on fire and sting after i eat alot of the time like thanks for information much appreciated

A severe B12 deficiency gives you numbness and pins and needles in your extremities. Most celiacs are deficient at first diagnosis. I had it bad enough to have numb fingers and pins and needles. How long will it take? how long did it take to do the damage..... wont take that long but it's a very very long process (years)

do u have same symthems?? took months coming up to it my bloods are good no defincy in anything allergies grand celiac grand but my intestines are like someone standing on them and when they are bad pins and needles are bad when it settles they settle


In Topic: Porrage Oats Or Gluten Free Oats?

Three points.

 

Regular, commercial oats are contaminated with wheat, and must be avoided by anyone avoiding gluten.

 

A minority of people with celiac disease experience the autoimmune reaction, even when the oats are pure. The only way to know if you are one of them is to try pure oats and see if you react. Don't introduce any other new foods for at least a couple of days before and after, so that if there is a reaction, you know it was the oats.

 

Oats are hard to digest, and an intestine compromised by damage from celiac disease has enough challenges. Wait until you are healed before trying oats. I have heard advice to wait at least six months.

thanks for your reply thats what im thinking is oats are hard to digest and maybe its causeing things to sloe down and stuff like cause everything else im eating is gluten free i think like gonna try cornflakes gluten-free and fruit or eggs in the morning see how i get on cause im getting worse again pains in my abs like i was working out and pains up my back like :(

Hi Kerrylad,

 

The gluten will leave your body quickly.  But the immune system reaction is what takes some time to stop.  That could be months before stopping, as even very small amounts of gluten will keep it going.  You need to avoid all wheat, rye, and barley.  Plus you should avoid oats for the first year as some celiacs react to them also.

thanks for reply im on organic oats they are wheat and gluten free but thinking of changing my breakfast from today like.. have moments it kinda goes but comes back might kick the porrage for a bit and see im sick again with it and dont think i had wheat like gluten free bread and ham for lunches and mainly chicken on its own for dinner alot or turkey fillets

From what I've read and heard, you need to cut out the gluten free foods as well.  They could be causing you to have the same symptons as gluten.  You can add the gluten free foods once your intestines have healed.

im on gluten free food for about 2 weeks now with no cheating i dont think unless its in something like but as far as i know im good so far like its def intestines like and making me get pins and needes all the time
