Sometimes Ok Eating Gluten?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have had stomach and thryoid issues for years. I've had several celiac blood tests and recently had a biopsy that came back normal. I went pretty much gluten free for 3 weeks and felt great - all stomach problems disappeared, which prompted me to ask for a biopsy. I went back to eating gluten for 2 months before the biopsy and had diarrhea 10-15 times a day. I was a mess w/bloating, etc.

I just got back from vacation where I ate all kinds of pizza and breads and pasta and my stomach did fine. I went from diarrhea to solid on vacation while eating all kinds of junk! I was prepared to go gluten free again after vacation but now I don't know what to do?

Anyone else have times where there stomach is good and other times when it is awful? I was so sure it was gluten because of my 3 week trial....now I'm confused!!!

Have you been tested for allergies? It's possible that there's something that you eat regularly at home that you weren't eating on vacation. (Of course, it would also have to be something you also coincidentally gave up during the gluten-free trial as well.) Maybe a food diary would help. The big question is what did you eat during the 2 months before the biopsy when you were having problems that you didn't eat on vacation. (Or what did you eat on vacation that you didn't eat during the gluten challenge.)

Its possible, since it's known that many who are celiac do not know... some show no signs or symptoms. I experience times eating gluten where I felt fine and just experience a increase in hiccups, gas etc... but other times i experience hiccups, gas, stomach problems and dry mouth. Though also since removing yeast I started to feel even more better, and seems like when I eat something with monosodium glutamate or sugar my symptoms really get a boost. Though Im aware of many health problems I have, some which may have been caused by one issue... some caused by one issue may go away as one is resolved ( such as diagnosing my candida, my likely thyroid problems may recover.. or could have been serverly damage where it wont).
