Day 4 Of Going gluten-free

Recommended Posts

hello!

really new to this gluten-free Lifestyle, and i havent eaten any gluten food but i also haven't gone to the bathroom in 4 days is there other food to avoid once you first start. trying to be on a high fibre diet but all i get is horrible smelly gas.

eating alot of fruit and veggies. About once in the morning and once at night some gluten-free bread or buckwheat waffles.

not to sure what else to do. Please any ideas would be great.

Have you talked to your doctor about what you are going through?


Gluten Intolerant with double HLA-DQ6. Pre-diagnosis: Weight gain, swelling, diarrhea, mouth sores, back pain, body aches, fatigue, muscle weakness, BRAIN FOG, runny nose, recurrent sinus infections, bruising, low white cell count (whole life), and more. My feet were so bad, I could hardly walk. Toward the end: Chronic Vit. D deficiency (almost no D in my body despite a quality multi-vit. each day).

There is hope! Gluten-free since Sept. '09, and I have my life back - I feel better than in many, many years!

I've experienced close to the same - but don't fret - once your system starts getting regulated, you can go to the bathroom as much as 4 or 5 times a day. What has been in there before your 4 days has putrified and the gas will clear eventually - but in my case, I am more able to control 'functions' than before.

You're taking in more fiber so that will give gas and yes - it's not always pleasant....and I thought men had the worst gas issues! lol

It will calm down....but may take a few months for your body to adjust while healing.

If you're gluten-free now - you'll be going thru the withdrawls almost immediately. Don't drive if you can help it - you'll feel like you're in a stupor of stupid.....meaning your mind is not your own during withdrawls.

I take B-complex and 1000 iu of Vit. D along with a gluten-free multi vitamin.

One a Day and Natures Bounty are safe.

Hang in there - you're going thru what is considered normal to us, but abnormal to you....it's time to be abnormal now.....but you can do it!

It does get easier.

Hugs and welcome!
