Celiac And Ibs

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here have celiac and IBS?  Is IBS caused by the damage from celiac.  It's impossible to eat both a gluten free and IBS diet since that IBS diet is based on so many things that celiacs can not eat.  SO do we just eat gluten free and suffer the effects of eating IBS trigger foods?  I have constant lower gut pain, gas and cramping, it's sore to the touch and very tender.  It feels bruised inside.  These are the symptoms that led to my celiac diagnosis but I am continuing to have problems with my gut.  

Anyone else?

'ibs' is what they told me i had when they didn't know what was wrong with me.  also 'you must have colitis' - which neither was true.  i have other food sensitivities that i figured out using a food journal.  every person is different.  maybe try that?  i kept track of EVERYTHING i ate, every ingredient, and used a scale from 1-7 with 4 being 'eh' lolz - that way i can be picky - i'll have this but skip the peppers, etc.  i also have a reaction to soy that mimics a gluten reaction.

Thanks, I am going to have to start writing it all down so I can notice a pattern.  I have a gluten type reaction to corn which really complicates things.  Corn is in everything.  I was first diagnosed with IBS and when my liver enzymes were elevated then finally I got them to listen to me and then I was diagnosed with celiac.  

I'm going to dig out a notebook and start writing everything down.

 

Thanks.

I agree ! I had IBS for years (couple of decades) before getting sick with a bad virus that wouldn't let me keep anything in for a week. After that I could not tolerate gluten at all (took a while to figure out). Anyway, 5 months after being gluten-free my doc tested me for celiac and of course it was negative....but I am very sensitive to gluten.

 

I have 'fixed my IBS' but eliminating gluten completely - and avoiding dairy 99% of the time and soy as well.

I am sensitive to very low levels of gluten.  I avoid dairy but I do need to be more careful with corn.  

The gi said that I had celiac and " a touch of ibs"  I guess I just need to be patient, more diligent and give it more time.  

Thanks!

Good on Not me! ha ha.

 

The gastro doctor I saw at the start of may said I don't have Celiac, I have IBS without ever scoping me.

I don't know what IBS means anymore.

I BS U ha ha.

 

GFreeMO, I rarely eat process foods because it's so hard to know what ingredient in that box of junk causes a problem.

I eat mostly produce and meat.

Exceptions would be the bread for my gluten challenge and cheeze and jam.

So if you eat eggs and you find it makes you sick then you can keep track of it.

I'm having less pain since I stopped eating tomatoes so I'm suspicious of them.
