Recommended Posts

doing the gluten-free thing and i think its going o k but not great. my first week gluten-free was great but the last 3 or 4 weeks i cant shake the EXTREME GAS my wife and coworkers are getting pissed at me.my bowel movements have improved from big d all the time to somewhat soft ,so i know im doing something right but im still not there yet , i really try to read labels and i dont eat anything that looks like it would be bad . the only thing i havent done is check the shampoo etc...could it be that simple, or should i just start over and cut out dairy and go simple with rice ,potatoes and just the simple stuff.

I'm betting you've become Lactose intolerant - as is often the case in recovering coeliacs.

Try cutting out the dairy for a while to see if it eases the gas :)

Your intestinal bacteria might be all screwed up as well. Do you take probiotics?

I was going to say the same thing Nikki said. Very often after you remove gluten from your diet, you find other sensitivities.

I have found recently, after almost 2 years gluten free that dairy can bring on the big bloat.

Also, the shampoo can be "as simple as that". Dove and Suave are gluten free (there are several others).

My bet is on the dairy. Hope you can work it out and you stop bombing your family and friends. :)

Try going dairy lite or eliminating it for a week and see how your feel. Therein will be your answer.

I had pretty bad gas from dairy and eggs for awhile after going gluten-free. My theory is that before, I wasn't digesting them at all, then once going gluten-free, I was somewhat digesting, and that somewhat wasn't pleasant. I took some Lactaid, and just cut out the eggs for awhile. Finally once I was really healed up, I realized that I could eat these things again. You probably will too. For me, I was reacting so extremely to the eggs that I couldn't have 1 slice of gluten-free bread with eggs in it without regretting it later. I still use Lactaid and lay off the eggs if I've been glutened recently.

Weird, I'm the same way.

If I get glutened, I have to stay away from eggs or else my "exhaust" can do some serious damage - LOL

I would recommend goign dairy and egg free for a few weeks and then slowly add them in.

probably a good idea i also gave up diet pop i used to drink at least 12 pack a day now im down to 2 or 3 im slowly giving them up. i would go cold turkey but i tried it before and got wicked headaches, so ill do it in stages. thanks to all for the advice

Dear pnltbox27,

I had to go dairy free myself. I was hoping not to have to exclude it, but that was not the case. I get so bloated! My colon also starts getting grumpy. The gas definitely is caused by dairy. It may be the casein, or the lactose. Just go without it for a while, then add it back in a small amount. I would say go without it for a couple weeks, then eat a Yoplait yogurt and wait a few days to see. You can have a delayed reaction. That is why you should not eat more after that. Otherwise, you will not know if that is what was causing the trouble.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

P.S. After your intestines begin to heal, you may be able to add dairy back.
