Weight Gain and Gastritis

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone I'm new here and my first post hoping you can help me. I got diagnosed with Celiac Diesase about 2 years ago. I've tried for months to lose weight but not shifted,my stomach is still bloated. My surgeon did a 2nd biopsy Monday 12th June 2017 and said they saw Gastritis. Could this be a cause for no weight loss and stomach being swollen still? What can I do to stop my stomach looking like I'm 6 months pregnant. I've gotta wait for the full report and follow up chat but hoping you guys can try help me. I eat more healthy than I have in years.

Just what happens with me, I have certain foods that cause my gut to swell and distend, I first found peanuts to do this to me over 4 years ago. I later had it come back when ever I ate to many carbs. I at first for about a year thought I had bad gut bacteria and it was just swelling with gas. I learned this year earlier on that I had Ulcerative Colitis and the triggers for my flare ups that are not yet eliminated by other issues (Diary is a common cause but I am lactose intolerant 10+ years) ended up being carbs....the sugars glucose and fructose are the primary ones for me along with other starches.

I ended stopping with what little fruit, grain, and beans I still consumed and removed them completely going to a ketogenic diet. My inflammation has gone done completely, my bleeding and blood in my stools stopped, and I no longer get those flare ups that make me distend in my lower gut....yeah that slightly pregnant look.

From this approach you might have a food your intolerant to or something your eating is triggering your inflammation. Try cutting down your diet to just a few foods and try a elimination diet and a food diary. Start off removing inflammatory foods, then try certain categories and families of foods. You might be reacting to dairy, carbs, sugars, nightshades, legumes, or grains. Good like in figuring it out.

Wow, you've done it, and... you got / get it. I know I benefit from reducing carbs and sugar, but it is difficult, and it's hard to get excited by food when you have to eat like a rabbit (or mountain lion)!

Tracey, what else did the doc say about the 2nd endoscopy (guess you are still waiting on that)? What is your diet like, beyond "eating healthy?" Really, I don't have near enough information to be commenting one way or the other, so I wish you the best and feel free to provide more details.
