Please Help Me Figure This Out......

Recommended Posts

SO I have been gluten-free for almost 4 months now and I am pretty sure that I am not consuming any gluten, however since my home is not gluten-free I sometimes think that I am getting CC'd by crumbs and residue left on items. But I have had NO symptoms and NO "D" so maybe I am just worried. I have gained some weight which shocks me as I am not eating all the junk that I used to, my doc said that it is b/c I am retaining nutrients...okay. I still have found out all the "junk" gluten-free foods and have been eating them and that is probably why I am gaining weight.

A few times I have gotten bloated, and this morning I felt sluggish. And I seem to be having diffiuclties with peanuts, everytime I eat something with PB I get a stomach ache, nothing severe...but I feel a bit bloated and sluggish. Maybe I cant tolerate Peanuts??? I made gluten-free PB cookies today, and I had a few more than I should have, but with us Celiacs we cant have alot so sometimes we indulge...at least I do!!!! Now I feel a bit bloated and tired, and my tummy is a bit extented and it is not usually like that. If I consume PB and get this reaction does it damage my villi??? So do I have to start the healing process over?? I know that there was not Gluten and no CC in the making of these cookies.

Also, I recently re-introduced Dairy and have had no problems, I do not drink milk like I did before but I have small amounts of dairy. But I have noticed that I am sometimes a bit constipated and I am thinking that it is b/c I am consuming dairy. My daughter is always constipated and the doc said that it could be b/c she consumes so much milk. Again, not bloating not "D" no nothing so I am assuming that dairy is not a problem.

And did anyone have trouble with their eye sight, I mean can it be affected by Celiac?? I get bad headaches and I have been noticing that I cant see clearly close up and my glasses are not helping anymore. I need to get my eyes checked but it costs so much now.

I would like to think that I am going about this correctly, I feel awesome otherwise and I dont ever want to feel like I used to. But sometimes I think that I could do better but I am still new to this and I will learn over time right??

Thanks for reading.

Or is it something else in the PB, assuming you're not buying a 1-ingred version?

. ... If I consume PB and get this reaction does it damage my villi???

I'm pretty sure it won't but maybe someone who knows more will chime in otherwise.

.. . . But sometimes I think that I could do better but I am still new to this and I will learn over time right??

Yes, Jess, you will. :)

In the meantime, do you get any symptoms while peanut-free for a few days?

If so, I must strongly suggest a food/symptom diary. Eliminating a few foods may do wonders.
