Hello, Im New And I Need Some Help

Recommended Posts

Hi i am Harisa, I have been diagnosed with Celiac Disease for a little over a year now. I do my best on eating gluten free, i only buy products that say they are gluten free, or are obviously gluten free such as rice or fruits and veggies. I feel like most of my personal products are safe for me, but i am not 100% sure. Lately I have been doing alot worse and I dont know why, my stomach feels bloated, acidic, and it feels everything in my stomach is getting moved around and it is very painful and hard to explain. I dont really understand what is going on but I havent felt this bad in a long time. I have really no idea what could be happening, i am in Vienna Austria on holiday, and i am eating gluten free products and they are marked but i feel terrible, i drink soy milk and eat rice, panda puffs, i do eat cheese and some dairy products.... Anyone have any ideas for me?

Thank you,

Harisa and Nicholas.

and why is everything pinned on this forum and my topic is not... i am very confused.

Hi Harisa and Nicholas,

I hope I can help. My name is Welda, and I am 63 years old, and have had Celiac symptoms since age 8, though of course none of the many doctors I went to for my severe asthma ever mentioned Celiac. In my 30s I was so sick that I started eliminating foods--first wheat and all other grains, then all milk & dairy, then egg whites, then yeast, and, finally, meat, fish and poultry.

You say that you are ingesting milk and cheese. That could cause problems. Even casein and whey (milk derivatives) have caused problems for me, even when they were in "gluten free" foods. I want to tell you that as time goes by, you will become more and more sensitive to the foods which your body doesn't like. Our bodies are so gracious to always let us know what we need and don't need, even responding to anger, fear, and stress.

As a vegan now, I eat all fresh fruits and vegetables, beans, peas, corn, soy, and lots of salads with celery, red bell peppers, green onions, cucumber, etc. I eat corn tortillas and corn tamales with refried beans, a combination that I learned is a complete protein, and corn spaghetti with refried beans, green Ortega chiles, etc. I eat Stevia as a sweetener, which comes in a packet like Equal, but is made from a plant from Paraguay, so is all natural and has no calories. Lots of water usually rounds out my daily intake.

One other thing--for me, food combining has become very important. I eat only fresh fruit for breakfast, and mix it with nothing else so that it digests properly. For lunch I have salad with the ingredients I mentioned above, then move to the starches, beans, tortillas, etc. Maybe this will give you a little more information. Welcome to the forum! Best wishes as you discover the foods that work well for you. Welda

Harisa, where are you from? It may be that Austria has different definitions of what gluten-free means. For example, in the UK, there can be a very small amount of gluten, which most of us still react to, so we don't trust things that say gluten-free from the UK sometimes. You might want to stop eating any of the 'replacement' foods while you're there and stick to meats, fruits, veggies, rice.

WELCOME

I found after going gluten-free for 5 months, it was the soy and dairy that kept me from getting better after the 5 months of feeling great.

There were great tips here.

Also, you might want to check out some of the articles that Scott who runs this forum, has up on the home page.

You might find some things that will shed some lite on things specific to you.

good luck

To figure out what you are reacting to, you will need to eat fruits, veggies, meats. then add other things, one at a time. I found that I react to corn and rice. Keep track of what you introduce and you at some point will find out what is causing you to feel bad. Good luck to you.
