Horrible smelling BM & Farts, gluten intolerant?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Been gluten free for a little over a year, but gluten slipted into my foods that I thought was gluten free. Well a couples months ago I noticed my BM & farts have been smelling like sulfur/ rotten eggs, do you think not knowing about being gluten intolerant for so long made my poops smell so bad? It's really embarrassing to be honest it's horrible smelling

I don't think Gluten affects the smell in the intestines that much. I think the combinations of food you eat are more likely affect the smell. Are you eating fruits on an empty stomach. Are you combining meat with bread? Also, I think you should consider having some blood/stool/glucose tests to see if you have a virus/bacteria in your intestines. Bacteria LIKE Helicobacter and Giardia can create unpleasant symptoms. I had such viruses once and I had the worst symptoms ever (including pain and smell). I wish no one this thing.

I'm unfortunately celiac now after having C.diff which ulcerated my intestines. It's been 2 years, and I've only accidentally been exposed to gluten now 4 times. It's horrible. But i usually can tell it's from a gluten exposure because of the awful sulfur gas. The smell is so intense and will usually linger for days!!! There is NOTHING else like it.
