glutened - how to stop the Diarrhea

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I am new to this site but have had celiac spru ( disease ) for ten years now. I thought I was doing good, but I obviously am not. I am having a horrible attack right now, as bad as the first one. I also have MC. I must have got contaminated somehow. I realize now that I absolutely cannot rely on products that say gluten free anymore. I believe I am just to sensitive now. How do you stop the  relentless diarrhea? I have taken a ton of anti diarrhea pills but the beast is still roaring in my belly and out...of it. Help! Any suggestions? I can't even make it to the toilet, so I sleep next to the bathroom now to avoid accidents in bed. Can't eat or drink ANYTHING or it gets worse. Had anyone dealt with this? I feel so alone and scared it will never stop. Thanks in advance,

Christine

Sounds like you might have a bad stomach virus or something else.  IF this goes on for more than a couple of days, you need to get to a doctor.

Thanks Karen, these symptoms I am having are exactly like the first time I experienced it. I didn't know I had celiac disease then, but after a month of agony I was diagnosed via biopsy. The difference now is I eat gluten free. I ate at a pizza place that  serves gluten free pizza earlier this evening and at two in the morning I woke to a lets just say unpleasant issue. I must have got cross contaminated. No matter what I do it won't stop. Do you know of anything other than Imodium to stop the D? 

Thanks so much,

Christinr

Hi Christine, 

You may want to ask this on a separate topic if you want more replies, but in the meantime how are you with dairy? Could be food poisoning and cross contamination is one possibility but there will be dairy in the gluten-free pizza and after a few years gluten-free I've only recently realised that dairy isn't just something I need to mostly avoid but I have to cut it out completely.

IF a Pizza place offers both gluten and gluten-free pizza....you have a extreme chance of CC, consider the prep area, the flour dusting, the reaching from gluten pizza to topping bins and back, the ladle used to put hte sauce on and spread it from one pizza to another, the pizza peel they use to put in and remove the pizza the cutters.....so many areas where a untrained personal can make a mistake and CC you.

Other thoughts dairy is a HUGE issue for many cealics, especially right after a gluten exposure. The tips of the villi help with the enzymes to break down dairy....damaged tips and you do not get enough of the enzyme and D, gas etc ensue. Best to avoid it for a bit again after a gluten exposure. For me it is a life time avoidance......

Thoughts for helping to firm up stool. Ground flax seed in food/beverages adds bulk and thickens up stool, coconut flour is also good for this in a baked good, or porridge, Pea Protein is high in iron and can help form up stools (NOT DEPENDS ON BRAND) I use Growing Naturals often and found the 30% DV iron in it is great. Avoid Sugars, starches, fruit, for now to keep gas down, and for god sake stay away from spices or you WILL feel the burn. Go with herb seasonings for awhile....

    Mistakes can set you back.  Remember, celiac disease is an autoimmune response.  Once triggered, it can go off for days, weeks or months.  Like my family member who has MS.  She would have severe flares that would last for six weeks or mor...
    Apart from a couple of mistakes I’ve been gluten free for a month now.  I still have issues with digestion.  Pain in my abdomen (like there is a blockage ) if I eat a big meal.  Small meals are fine, and I still get excessive wind and nause...
