Liquibowels

Recommended Posts

I've been having ''Liquibowels'' for a week now. I assume I got glutened last week because we had contractors in our house all last week so I ate many restaurant meals. But this week I have been at home, back to my normal food routines, and the problem persists. Usually when I get glutened I will have loose/liquidy stools and cramping 1 time the next day, after 2 days all is well. I stopped taking all my multivites, iron supps, and started a probiotic. The weird thing is the ''regularity'' of it, I still go at my normal time, but it is all liquidy, then occasionally some more very small amts throughout the day. No cramping or extreme D urgency, but I hear all kinds of gurgling in my intestines. Could this be some kind of virus, although I feel perfectly fine? Something else? Just a long term reaction to the gluten?

Getting slightly worried, wondered if anyone else has had a vaguely similar experience.

Thanks.

Melie

A while back someone posted about drywall being made with wheat. Did the contractors install drywall? If so you might have a layer of gluten dust over everything in your house...

I had the same thought as Jestgar.

The dust from the drywall and the joint compound many times contain wheat. That dust (as you well know!) gets everywhere.

We had our basement finished a few years ago, and I found the dust inside my kitchen cabnets. Ugh!

I would dust everything really well--even if it looks clean. Maybe run the dishes, glasses and silverware through the dishwasher. After you vaccum, get rid of the bag and replace it.

Hope you feel better soon :)

I hadn't thought about the dust etc. They were putting in hardwood floors, so ripping up padding and carpet, linoleum and plywood. I wouldn't think any of those things would have gluten, but gosh its everywhere you wouldn't suspect. Great suggestion about washing everything. I will do that. Thanks!
