You could have eaten something with gluten in it???

My poo is really stinky and gross when I was eating gluten and now if I get CC'd.

Other thing maybe something that was really fatty?

I'm not on a gluten free diet yet. Gonna get tested first. :huh:

Do you relate to the smelling like vomit thing?

Not gluten free yet because I'm waiting to be tested.

This could be your answer: still eating gluten

Anytime the gastro tract is upset poo gets to have a funny color: orangey, yellow and odor. It's a sign of maldigestion.

Just this summer I had my gallbladder out and after the surgery for weeks I had orangey poo. Doctors weren't concerned over it. It went away as I healed. But I had a lot of gastro upset and maldigestion and diarreah.


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Yes I think it can be a sign of malabsorption, not digesting your food. The vomit smell is because that is essentially what it is, the food passes undigested or only partially digested from your stomach and through your intestine.

I don't remember, are you in the process of testing, waiting for an endoscopy or so?

I haven't had any tests yet, I'm waiting to get into to GI doctor. I did an experiment where I cut gluten out of my diet for a week and a half, and I did notice a difference. My digestion was closer to normal than it has been in a long time after a week, and when I reintroduced gluten (I reintroduced it at breakfast and lunch one day and then didn't eat it again for the next 48 hours) I had a lot of what I used to call depression/anxiety for the next couple of days... this feeling I've had so many time, like there was something wrong, but I didn't know what (well, now I do!).

Thinking back, I used to get this once in a while before being diagnosed. I can relate--good luck with your testing, and I hope that you don't have to suffer with gluten for much longer. :):)

It could be gallbladder related.


Celiac blood testing negative July 2007

Confirmed diagnosis of wheat allergy by skin test Dec 2007

Gluten-lite since July 2007 (didn't know all the hidden sources of gluten)

Gluten-free since December 2007

Life Long Symptoms

Extreme fatigue--needing 10-12 hours of sleep and still woke up exhusted

Allergic to everything--allergies remained out of control despite shots and strict enviornmental controls in my home.

Severe "sinus" headaches

More Recent Symptoms

IBS symptoms

Severe stabbing stomach pains that started 6 months before diagnosis of wheat allergy.

In my heart I feel it is more than an allergy and that I am gluten intolerant. This is based on my how eerily my childhood maladies match most celiac's histories, and my more recent increase in the severity of my usual symptoms and new digestive symptoms that have already started to subside on the gluten-free diet.
