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

Recommended Posts

I had a late diagnosis of my celiac and it took a few years to get under control. (Thank you Fasano diet!) However, I kept having food issues ... it turns out I have IBS-D.

I'm having a difficult time dealing with the IBS. My food choices were already limited, but now a lot of them (including fruit and vegetables) are off limits.

Any suggestions for good resources or places to discuss having celiac AND IBS at the same time?

For example, I buy a brand of potato chips that is strictly gluten free, and have tried a flavour that only includes potatoes, canola oil, and salt. I get gassy and diarrhea from this. I read somewhere that something about the fat content, etc can make chips difficult to digest, leading to gas and bloating. Is there any precaution I can take to reduce this issue?

How were you diagnosed with IBS?  Were things things like SIBO, Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis were ruled out via testing and scopes?  Personally I balk at the IBS diagnosis.  I call it “I Be Stumped”.  I got that diagnosis years ago when I had GI issues.  Later those resolved (but never my anemia).  Celiac disease is like a chameleon — symptoms can change.  

Consider the Autoimmune Paleo Diet (or KETO) for a few weeks.  Then you introduce foods back into your diet slowly.  Keep a journal.  Avoid processed foods during this time, even certified because you could be reacting (intolerance) to any of the ingredients.  

Check out member EnnisinTX.  With diet, he has healed from celiac disease and his UC is in remission.  Everyone is different, though, so you have to find your own way.

Hi cyclinglady,

Thanks for the reply. I'm scheduled for the scope and we've been doing some blood work. I'll look further into what you've said here.

One of the reasons we believe I have IBS right now is that after going onto the FODMAPS diet the diarrhea and gas pains generally went away. There has been some learning curve and adjustments made, but in general I feel much better. It has meant giving up a lot of things that I enjoyed though.

Like you pointed out, IBS seems to be a catch-all term. So I'll keep looking into this and see if we can rule out the other things you mentioned. Thanks for sharing your insight!
