Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi 

I am 48 years old and was diagnosed with Celiac disease three months ago. I was having nausea and bloating that was not going away, so I went to my GP who did blood work.  After a positive Celiac test she sent me to a Gastroenterology Dr. who diagnosed me with Celiac disease. I eliminated gluten and all of my symptoms were gone after a  few weeks but now it seems that I cant eat any grains or dairy (besides white rice) without my symptoms coming back.  Is this normal? And how it is that I could eat all of these things 5 months ago without any issues?? 

 

Thanks for the support!

Hi Welcome to the forum! :)

In celiac disease our immune systems attack the lining of the small intestine.  The damages the villi lining the small intestine.  Those villi are what absorb nutrients from food we eat.  So when they are damaged we begin to suffer malnutrition symptoms and digestion symptoms.

There are millions of bacteria in our guts all the time.  Some of them assist our digestion.  Once our guts are damaged the bacteria mix can get tilted to a unhealthy direction.  The diary issue is probably lactose intolerance caused by destruction of the villi.  The villi also make an enzyme called lactase that digests dairy sugar.   No villi, equals no lactase.  All that undigested sugar means millions of bacteria start eating the sugar and multiplying extravagantly.  That can cause GI symptoms.

It is a good idea to avoid dairy, oats, carbs and processed foods for 6 months or so after going gluten-free.  Carbs (rice, potatoes, etc) turn into sugar in the gut.  That can cause more symptoms.


Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul

Does that mean a person is still healing if they still have those glutening kinda sensations still , for me anyway , when i go to bed? it starts to come on.  Not every night.   But like my intestines is trying to still digest food and i get that WAVEY shakey tremble feelings. Like before i get glutened  BUT i didn't get glutened. thanks

  I don't know how long you have been gluten-free or how well you have kept your diet gluten-free either.  But if you are still having GI symptoms there has to be a reason for them.  Either you were slightly glutened somehow or are reacting to another food besides gluten or you are not healed yet. To know for sure you'd need to get another endoscopy done.
