Recommended Posts

I have an apt at the end of Feb with a doc to be tested. I did blood work about a yr ago and it was neg. I am hoping this new doc will do the biopsy so I can know for sure.

I was always told I was lactose intolerant but even If I dont consume dairy I still get VERY gassy. I have been to the hospital with severe stomach pains and nothing was ever found. I dont drink much but If I do I love beer but I ache almost right away. I can feel it radiate down my legs and arms. I have told doctors in the past and they say"dont drink" .

When a gastro doc a yr ago wanted to test me for Celiac I had never heard of it. He thought I looked anirexic(sp?),which I'm far from. I am 5"3 and weigh 110. At the time I was 104. I explained that I was having bad stomach pains,bad gas,D. We dont have ins untill middle of Feb 2008 so thats why Im waiting. The beer thing really makes me think It might be Celaic. What do you think and has anybody had this happen before you new you had celiac?

Thank you

Yes, Beer can do that!!!

I hardly drank beer before b/c it always gave me the big D...ofcourse then I didn't even know what celiac was.

If you want to get tested make sure you keep eating gluten.

The lightbulbs should have gone off when I started joking with my doctor that I got drunk and wicked hangovers from nonalcoholic beer. They didn't.

Me too! I never drank very much, but whenever I had a couple beers, I'd get bad D the next morning. I never connected it to gluten; I assumed it was the alcohol. Like a lot of things, it makes sense in retrospect, but at the time I never guessed it might be celiac.

The more I read here, the more it makes sense. The morning after drinking beer, I'm glued to the toilet and always assumed i have a poor tolerance for alcohol. You know, "look at him, he can't take his beer!"

I guess i can't take my beer, or rather my body can't take it! I'm going to miss my Guinness and real ale!

In college I would swear to people that I must be allergic to Beer because of the random reactions I would get that included inconsistent behavior when drinking, horrible hangovers from very little to drink and the big D. It only took me 15 more years of problems to figure it out. I can't believe I'm saying this but I don't miss it at all.

Thing is, if you're still eating bread, pizza, etc., that stuff has WAY, WAY more gluten than beer. I mean TONS more.

Kareng, I am a bit concerned by your statement here.  I no longer have "out of control" DH, but smaller, more scattered, and more readily resolving (for the most part) flareups.  And it may be that I am just having what would be "normal" for a person in my situation, being 'only' 13 months into the gluten-free diet.  I will readily admit, and perhaps should stress, that the situation is very much better than it was before I went gluten-free, including the fact that my former GI symptoms have tot
