Hi All New To gluten-free

Recommended Posts

I've been gluten-free for almost a week . I think I feel a little better and my stomach went down but as soon as I take 2 bites of anything I bloat again and still can't get rid of the belching and gas. Should this be improving by now or Is it still too soon?

Hi.

For me it took at leat 2-3 weeks. Everyone is a little different.

What are some of the foods you are eating in the diet now?

Best regards.

It can take a bit of time to heal. A week is not really very long. Are you eating mostly unproccessed naturally gluten free foods at this point? It can be hard to ferret out the hidden gluten in things at first and naturally gluten free will help you heal with less 'mishaps'. Be sure to drop dairy products for a least a little while, the same villi that are damaged by gluten are needed to digest dairy. Also make sure you eliminate gluten from all non-food sources as well, cosmetics, shampoos, conditioners, hair coloring, glues, drywall compounds, clays, and pet foods are just a few of the possible sources of non-food gluten.

For a lot of us it is temporary. Once we heal a bit and the villi are again producing the enzyme we need to digest it we are fine. Some of us are able to tolerate hard cheeses like cheddar and yogurt for a bit before stuff like ice cream, mozzarela and just milk. I was able to do yogurt and cheddar relatively soon, within a month or so but for stuff like ice cream I waited longer. If someone has a casein intolerance they would not usually be able to add milk in. Casein is the milk protein, lactose is the sugar.

Go by your gut, when you have been symptom free for a while try the 'predigested' cheeses like the cheddar and the yogurt. When you do you should make sure that you are only eating for sure safe stuff so you know for sure it is the dairy and not CC if you should react.

This happened to me when I first went gluten-free....someone on here told me to be careful of cross-contaimination. AND also, things you might not think of - cutting boards - will hold gluten - toasters, mayonaise, jelly, peanut butter, teflon pans, wooden spoons, plastic spatulas, etc....check these things out. Even certain medications contain gluten.

Keep a watch out for these things
