    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Slightly Humourous But Serious Poop Question

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Okay, so I got glutened three days ago, and everything I have ate afterwards has went right through me. You know, when it gets to the point that you're laughing on the toilet because it's just been your best bud.

Anyway, tonight for a snack I was FAMISHED, and ate literally everything in site for 45 minutes: I was cracking nuts right and left, I had four huge bowls of cereal, tonnes of fruit. It was delicious! But SO much.

But never ending.

Does that happen to people after a glutening? After the diarreah (hopefully) starts letting up, is it like, "okay, time to replenish?"

Does diarreah act like a laxative? If I were to diarreah after every meal for the next, I don't know, week, would I lose (real) weight?

For the love of pete, we're all too skinnnny anyway!

But really these are serious questions.

I have an exam tomorrow, so let's say a prayer that this 80 lbs of food stays where she belongs.

Lorka--I get very hungry after being glutened, too. Probably the 3rd or 4th day when the nausea lets up, I'm so thirsty and hungry for gluten free carbs, especially. Good luck at the Dr. :)

I am extremely hungry after i am glutened, and the experience is very much like what you described. But i certainly havent lost weight from getting sick, b/c i find that i do replenish (possibly over-replenish!) after getting glutened.

I lost weight in the beginning, before I knew what was causing my diarrhea. Everything I ate...even plain ol rice would go right through. Now, if I'm accidentally glutened, I take immodium. That stops the diarrhea immediately! :) For me..when I was sickest, it took longer to feel better after eating gluten and now that I'm healing, I'm only sick for a day sometimes two. I just watch my diet and don't eat anything else that irritates my stomach.

I also get very hungry and want to eat everything in site but I try not to. I want to keep my weight where it is!

Good luck on the exam!! :)

Traveljunkie--When you take Immodium after a gluten accident, does it also help with the cramping and nausea? I usually let it run its course, but if that would help, I may try it. Thanks!

Hi jerseyangel,

Yes , for me it does. I don't usually get nausea just burning type sensations in the intestines. I usually let it run its course as well, but if I have to go out, taking immodium gives me peace of mind. My reactions to gluten are intense itchy rash with burning intestines followed by diarrhea. Give immodium a try and see if it helps with nausea. I usually take 2 if its a bad reaction. Hope it works for you! :)

I have tried the immodium thing and I find that all it does is trap that battle inside your belly even longer, I think its better to just let it run its course, that is as long as I have a day or three to sit in my bathroom! But no, when i take the immodium I just feel like I need to D and cant, and that is NO FUN

Our ancestors, in the 19th and early 20th centuries, had the right stuff for D: Tincture of Opium.

That drug, with its narcotic pain-killing properties, would be perfect for us today. Contrary to what the idiots in charge of drug policies say, it will not have any long-term addiction or side effects when used occasionally.

Even if a person had to take it frequently, they would not be "high" from it - and the risk of developing a "habit" is negligible. I was strongly considering getting this before discovering that I had Celiac. I have heard that the version available today is not as strong as it once was. That sounds par for the course

They probably got more relief out of the opium back then, than we can get from the over-the-counter or prescription stuff we are all stuck with today.
