Gluten Free And Now Getting Diarhea

Recommended Posts

I have been gluten free for 3 months now. 3 or 4 times that I know I've had gluten since. I didn't have any symptoms of Celiacs Disease other than stomach pain. I now have chronic diarrhea that I've had for about 3 weeks now. I just can't figure it out. I have an apple with peanut/cashew/almond butter for breakfast, a salad for lunch and some sort of meat with veggies for dinner. It seems I should have had this problem before not now. Has this happened to anyone else and if so did you figure out the reason. I have eliminated most obvious dairy from my diet such as milk in cereal, yogurt and cheese (I do have a tiny bit of cheese on my salads). Any questions, comments, concerns would be greatly appreciated. :D

Just some things to muddle over:

Any new foods added to your diet?

More soy to replace dairy?

New toiletries?

Are you married/dating someone who eats gluten and then you kiss them?

Have you tried cutting out ALL dairy for at least a week to see?

Are your salads prepared at home or at a restaurant? Salad bar? Dressing?

Plain meat you season yourself at home with gluten-free spices?

Butter on those veggies?

Do you wash/sanitize your produce very well?

New supplements or medications?

gluten-free dog foods and treats?

***We tend to have more severe/new reactions AFTER we go gluten free and then get some. So finding sources of CC/hidden gluten is important.

Did you get your gallbladder out?

I had a bunch of additional food intolerances crop up after going gluten-free. or at least, that's when I detected them. The way I figured it out was to find a very limited diet I was ok on (meat and veggies) then slowly test things about 4 days per test. So far I've figured out that seeds and really bad, nuts are pretty bad, chocolate is very bad. Dairy has issues too.

I did not have my gall bladder out. My surgeon still wanted to proceed of course but my GI doc thought it would only make things worse. And the refraction scale is debateable too. Mine works 33%. My surgeon said it should be 65% or more and my GI said 30% or more. After going gluten free the pain went away so I thought best to keep all my body parts. =)

You might want to try no raw fruits or veggies. Also no nuts. Just to give your intestines a chance to heal before they have to deal with all that fiber.

Hi

When I went gluten free the first time things went really well right off the bat... but then I got a negative test and started having wheat again for 2 weeks. That's when things went really bad. It seems that I reacted way worse than before and the reactions lasted for at least 2 weeks before I started improvement again. If you have been glutened 3 times then you may be really setting yourself off. The other thing I found was that anything that is hard to digest while I am recovering from being glutened results in the bathroom issues. I have a hard time with any gluten free flours that are derived of foods I don't usually eat (chickpea, amaranth, almond, millet). I have a hard time with nuts, fatty foods and even some raw vegetables and even apples! I was already lactose free before figuring out the gluten thing (it was one of my first symptoms but didn't know it at the time). I would start off with a really basic boring easy to digest diet. Like chicken, rice cooked veggies, bananas and work up from there. I found that alot of the prepackaged gluten free foods were hard to digest. Go slow and then you will find that you can add in things over time. It will get better. I really hate to get glutened now as it takes so long to get back on track with eating normal foods again. I still can't eat peanut butter but I could have almonds until the last glutening which was about 3 weeks ago.

Good luck, you just have to heal!
