In Topic: Gluten Free For 8 Months, Starting To Feel Sick Again

12 March 2010 - 04:39 AM

Just thought I would add my two cents! I've been gluten-free for 5 years. In the first year I had to stay away from soy as the protein was too similar to gluten. I also had to really watch what was coming in the house, my family did not go gluten-free. If someone makes a sandwich on the counter, and you come in later and make a gluten-free one, then some of the crumbs can easily get on your food. i know from experience, that any thing cosmetic can make you sick if it has wheat in it. You really have to check everything. It seems like when you first go gluten-free that there is a grace period, perhaps it's the shock to the system not having to deal directly with the gluten... But usually, a few months in, the body is able to detect the smaller amounts of gluten in things. I now react very quickly to cross contamination, where in the beginning, I did not at all. Hang in there. It gets much easier!

If I am having gas I take phazyme. They seem to really help. I also take pepcid AC if it's more sour stomach. I drink lots of fluids, it helps to wash out the system.

In Topic: Are You Glutened Symptoms Always The Same?

For me i get similar reactions, but they aren't from gluten... If i start to feel sick with the headache, then I know it's gluten. I get the horrible gas when I consume bean flours or sorghum flour. I don't know why. Apparently the damage done to my intestines make those flours harder to breakdown. I have found that phazyme seems to work for me on controlling the gas. Hope this helps!

In Topic: How Long Does It Take For Villi To Regrow?

09 March 2010 - 10:18 AM

I agree. It took at least a year for my villi to "reactivate" after becoming gluten-free. If I accidently eat something with gluten, I have problems for at least 2 weeks after the incident. It is better to avoid the gluten!
