Liquid Diet Post Glutening?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been gluten free for 2 years and I'm pretty careful so I don't often have many problems. I was traveling this weekend and got glutened. Should I do a clear liquid diet for a few days? Have you found any thing to be helpful in treating post glutening?

I think you have to find what is helpful for you and your unique symptoms.  A clear liquid diet might be very helpful for diarrhea.    Some find that eating light foods like some rice in chicken broth or Cream of Buckwheat cereal is helpful.  I find that rice Chex and lots of water work well for me.

I'm new at this and have not yet had to go through a post gluten-free glutening reaction, but in my pre-gluten-free days whenever I had a stomach bug chicken broth (I drink it like tea) helps tremendously, followed by a bit of an apple and green beans when my system feels ready for them.  Gingerale is also helpful - and was helpful following my biopsy when my intestine was still a bit tender and not happy with anything substantial.  I think the key is to find whatever your body finds to be really, really easy to digest while still providing it with some nutrition.

During this last glutening, when I got bound up, I relied on juicing. I couldn't eat much, but I found the liquids to be hydrating, and, naturally, there were nutrients going in, so I think it may have helped with the amount that I was able to absorb. I'm still fatigued, but at least I'm not bound up, and the heartburn is very minor and occasional.

 

Before going gluten free, I would alternate between severe C and mild to not-so-mild D. I try to drink and eat whatever feels good on my tummy, eat slowly, and stop if I start to feel sick, and that is usually well before I feel full. 

 

Rice is okay, most of the time, but apples without skin and bananas are okay. If nothing else is wonderful, I will actually eat grits, and usually tolerate those well. I salt and pepper them (unless one or the other seems like it would do more harm than good) and make them a little more watery than normal. I think I tolerate corn better than rice.

 

I also will drink hot water, sometimes, with a squeeze of lemon. Even ice water with lemon works similarly. It actually seems to promote motility in me. I know others need the opposite, so I would avoid, depending on the case.
