Day 2 gluten free diet (testing), diarrhea and pain normal?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm still being tested. Got some blood drawn recently. My rheumatologist suspects celiac. I've been sick for a while with all sorts of symptoms. I've started a gluten free diet as my doctor told me try for 1-2 months to see if it helps. I've already had the blood drawn while I was eating gluten. My question is. Is it normal to have painful digestion and fishers when just recently quitong gluten? I've been gluten free only a mere two days. I know it takes time. But seems a bit worse? Is that normal?

First thing - if you want to continue testing for Celiac disease, you need to be eating a regular gluten containing diet.

That said, any dietary change can get your system in a funk.

Yea that's what I thought but my doctor said to try. Should probably wait though till I finish the tests. Thanks! :) and yea I was just thinking a moment ago "maybe it's normal for a sudden dietary change?" So yea thanks. :)

Welcome!  Here is more information to support what Karen said about testing for celiac disease:

You should really be referred to a GI (I assume you have some other autoimmune disorder.).   I would strongly recommend the complete celiac panel and rule out other diorders like Crohn's etc.

Right, fistulas or fissures are usually associated with Crohns, but not celiac.  It is not impossible to have both conditions though.


Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul
