Can you still have problems with bloating/gas if you are gluten free? I mean just because we are gluten free doesn't mean we will never be bloated or have gas again, right?

You can still be bloated and have gas if you are intolerant to something else. I developed other intolerances after my body was finally absorbing foods I was not during 30+ years of misdiagnosed/undiagnosed celiac disease. Now gluten, dairy, soy and MSG cause bloating in me.

Personally, I can have the exact same meal and get gas/bloating at least part of the time. I think it depends on a lot of factors (time of day, speed of ingestion, etc.)

I've been gluten-free for over a year now. Recently, I experimented with the Paleo diet at the recommendation of my Rhumatologist. Bloating/gas was never something I considered bothersome and even before going gluten-free, I had relatively few digestive complaints. Well, after 2 weeks of the Paleo diet, my stomach was as flat as when I was a teen and my hubby thought I lost weight. (I was even thinking how nice my figure looked. Then, I caved in and broke the diet only to discover instant bloating and gas pain along with a pouffy belly. I guess living with bloating every day felt normal and I didn't realize it until it was gone. So after two more weeks off paleo, I'm starting up again with the intent of finding a middle ground that is less restrictive, but has less gas. I'm hoping for no grain/soy, but more natural sweetner and fruit.

Best wishes.

Certain foods will cause gas and bloating in people whether celiac or not. My husband who is not Celiac will have problems with bean dishes such as chili and mexican dishes. I've also banned him from Fat Tire beer....those are the worst farts ever :P
