Glutened how do I stop symptoms?!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I was diagnosed with Celiac over a year ago and I've been doing pretty well with eating gluten free with little to no reactions. A couple days ago I visited my brother and we ate out. I'm pretty sure I was glutened at a Mexican restaurant. My symptoms when I eat gluten are constipation, bloating and a feeling of a brick/heavy feeling in my stomach. I was wondering if anyone else has these symptoms and if so do you have any remedies? It's very uncomfortable and I am having a hard time enjoying my time being home, thanks!

Yeah with the bloat and constipation I suggest taking Magnesium Citrate for the constipation, I take it daily as a supplement via Natural Vitality Calm, but in higher doses it acts as a laxative. For the gas GasX and teas help, I found using Anise is a life saver with gas issues,

I buy wholesale from the company direct and got a lb of it.

Other then that your going to have to wait it off, -_- I know it is annoying but your going to have to let the antibodies go back down can take 1-6 weeks to be completely gone, I find constipation would clear up in about 5-8 days before I was regular again.

I have used milk of magnesia when I've been glutened to relieve the c and the brick heavy feeling. Take at night with a large glass of water. Usually the next day I go, but then the following day I don't because I've gone so much! But I don't feel bad.

fyi it's gluten-free and I take the full capful as I have what they call "slow transit times" so when I can't go, I need a lot of help.

My experience when i've been glutened as a result of eating out,  is that there is nothing you can do afterwards, except to take it easy & restrict yourself tohome food only. Take it easy for a week or so, and the symptoms should gradually recede, leaving behind a lesson to be extra careful in future!!

Best of luck..
