What Is Normal

Recommended Posts

Thank you all for your help so far.

1.) Is it normal to have some setbacks (stomach pain) while you are healing even if you haven't take in Gluten. Been having 2 goods days then 1 bad. Have eaten mostly white rice and grilled chicken/ground lean beef.

2.) What is considered diahrrea? After researching I am even more confused? Not trying to be a wise guy, but the term loose stools?

3.) Anyone else have stomach growls while healing?

Once a coworker told me I have the loudest stomach on record. I joke about it now. My stomach just makes a lot of noise. :P

Your system will settle down once you are gluten-free for a few months. Then you will see what is normal for you.

When I officially went gluten free I had really bad stomach pains the first month even though I was not consuming any gluten. While your healing you do go through A LOT of stuff...stomach pains, mood swings, aches and pains the list goes on. It does get better so hang in there, give it some time.

Good Luck :)

It can take a while to heal and to ferret out all the gluten sources that can sneak in. For me stomach growling is directly connected to gluten. It will tell me loudly within a couple hours that I am in for a couple of rough days. My tummy growled so much since childhood that I stopped eating in the morning before I went to school in grammar school. Most folks tummies would growl when hungrey, mine would growl AFTER I ate. It took a few months for the noises to stop gluten-free but stop they did. The most helpful thing for me after being gluten-free for the stomach pain was Pepto Bismal, it works for me in one dose for the pain. Don't know if it is something you may want to try but figured I would mention it.

It's possible your tummy/system (it's actually your intestines gurgling most likely) doesn't like heavy carbs like rice/potato/bread. Could you try having your meat with a salad for a few days and see if that helps? (Salad w/o any dried fruit or croutons or high sugar/starch things.) Or some cooked veggies (not corn or potato or squash)?

I don't do well on rice at all. I know for lots of folks it's a comfort tummy food; but it bugs my digestive system.
