Still having symptoms

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am new in my diagnosis. I’ve been eliminating gluten for four months, but have still had many times where I have eaten gluten accidentally.

I’ve been working hard to make sure I don’t accidentally eat gluten, or eat something that has been cross contaminated with gluten. However I still have days where I end up with a horrible stomach ache. It doesn’t feel the same as when I get gluttened.

(I’ve also learned that I have other food allergies, like dairy, so I stay clear of those foods as well.)

Is it normal to still have stomach pain/bloating/indigestion even after eliminating gluten from your diet?

Recovery can take an average of 2 years IF you are 100% gluten-free. Many people take enzymes like GliadinX (they are a sponsor here) to help them deal with cross-contamination if they eat outside their homes...there are many studies that support their use for small amounts of accidental gluten:


Above all, you need to be 100% gluten-free, and you may also need to eliminate other things, at least temporarily, like cow's milk, corn, soy, etc., until you've fully healed.
