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

Feeling Sick After Eating

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been gluten-free for 2.5 years now and have been doing great! BUT this last month or so I get horrible stomach pains after eating ANYTHING. I have searched through all my foods they are all safe as far as I can tell. I haven't eaten out or anything like that either. Any thoughts?

Check your thyroid, I was on meds, and that started suddenly happening to me, and they didn't know why, went 3 months on almost no food, and then admitted to the hospital, and they found that they were giving me almost double the meds i needed.

Hope you feel better!

I was the same way about 5 years gluten & dairy free and then -- bam -- secondary food allergies and a thyroid problem.

Some celiac's can't do dairy, corn, rice or potatoes... I can't either. For me the real poision is SOY. Some don't believe me because the mainstream and healthfood stores are still in denial. And some here know it's a fact. I know SOY is what caused my thyroid problem...

Also, beware of binders in your medication. I have a big problem with them, they put corn, dairy and other hidden things. I go to a compounding pharmacist. I have also discovered that many of the main stream med are cross contaminated with gluten. The companies buys their dye from another comany that puts gluten in their pills, they run the dyes on the same lines. And so we get cross contamination and no one tells us these things. Or they give the ingredient a lab name that we don't understand to confuse us.

One thing I do that helped me is a food body journal of my journey. I write down everything that goes in my mouth. I can go back and refer to it to see for myself the cause.

Thanks, Thyroid problem huh? I really didn't want to hear that at all! I was hoping to get fixed without going to the doctor. :(

I breastfeed right now as my baby can't tolerate anything so we just started her on some squash a few days ago. She is over 8 months old now and that is so draining being her only source of food. The worse part is I have to eat to feed her and I just don't want to eat or drink anything. I feel so sick after eating anything at all. I don't take any medication and the baby is allergic to milk and soy so I don't eat those things either.

I guess I will go and look up thyroid conditions now. :huh:

I don't know anything about babies but I have read the best thing YOU can do is breastfeed them. It builds up their antibodies so they won't get celiac disease...

Talking about babies I just posetd something about 'baby stuff' that might help YOU feel a little better.

drink baby pedialyte when I feel bad I'll link it here.

This was from a thread about what makes you feel better after you get gluten in your system.

I DRINK A BOTTLE OF PEDILYTE. PEDILYTE IS THE SAFEST WAY TO REPLACE YOUR LOST ELECTROLYTES LOST FROM STEATORRHEA-DIARRHEA. A SMART DOCTOR WILL TELL YOU THAT. IT HAS HELPED ME MORE THEN ANYTHING! TRY IT -- YOU'LL SEE...

Hi, Kayjay,

Definitely follow up on your thyroid...right after my first baby was born thirteen years ago, my thyroid plummeted (as apparently it can for a few months following pregnancy) and I had the symptoms of hypothyroidism as a result. It did normalize after about a year. I now have hypothyroidism for real, and am on meds for it (celiac and low thyroid, hand in hand)!

I have been fascinated by Broda Barnes MD's work on thyroid. In your research you might include this doc in your search. Sorry you're feeling bad. I got glutened from an iron skillet yesterday, so I'm a bit out of it myself.

Oh, and since you're breastfeeding, be sure you're getting enough fluids. I get nauseaous when I get dehydrated. If your baby is going through a growing period, maybe he's eating more and taking more of your fluids.

I didn't feed my babies significant solids until they were about a year old, so don't worry, breastmilk is all he needs! I didn't use baby foods at all!

^you know what I ate something out of a iron skillet yesterday at my dad's house. I bet that is why I am in so much pain today and yesterday! But that doesn't explain the few weeks prior but is was so bad yesterday and today <_< .

Thanks for the info about the breastfeeding. I worry because she just is eating a tablespoon of squash for the last 4 days. I made it myself. SHe seems to be doing okay on that now but the first few days were rough on her. She is slowly dropping off in her percentile too. She is 8 months but hasn't grown much in the last few months.

I know EXACTLY how you feel when you talk about being your daughter's only food source. My daughter is the same way and she's over a year old now. She won't eat anything and gags horribly when I do sneak a little into her mouth. I am gluten-free, thus she is. She has horrible reflux and a feeding tube. It's so much pressure, expecially since I'm pumping exclusively since she refuses to nurse. We've tried every formula to supplement and nothing works at all.

I have started giving her pureed avocado, gerber chicken, and gerber prunes mixe with breast milk through the feeding tube at night. You might try the avocado with your daughter, at least. It is packed with calories and gets really smooth. I mix 1 avocado, 1 tsp. lemon juice, and 2-3 oz. water in the food processor to get the right consistency.

I do hope you feel better soon.
