Digestive Upsets

Recommended Posts

i started my gluten free diet about 5 weeks ago and the first week was the most miserable week of my life! I went to the ER twice because the pain was so intense! Afterwards though i found that i had so much more energy and i quickly adapted to the new lifestyle and foods with no problem. I read the entire label on bottles/boxes before i buy and if i have a shadow of a doubt about how it was prepared i dont buy it at all. However i am still experienceing some stomach upsets. it is not like it was before just bloating and fatigue with some mild stomach cramps. At first i thought it could be that i was eating too much sugar or grease but even after a few days of bland food the cramps continued. They come and go now and i just wanted to know if this is normal or if i am still consuming gluten without realizing it!

I had the same problems, and it turned out to be secondary food intolerances. It took some detective work and food diaries to figure it out. If that is the case, the most likely culprits are nightshades, dairy and soy. Good luck!

Do also check all your meds, script and OTC as well as your toiletries. You will also heal faster if you go with whole unprocessed foods for a bit and when you do eat processed if you see a 'made in a facility that uses wheat etc' pass on it till you have healed fully.
