I recently have been told to try a gluten free diet. My labs (blood and samples from a scope) are both within the normal ranges (but on the high end) for Celiac but my doctor says that I present as someone with Celiac. I've been eating gluten free since Thursday (5 days). I feel a little better most of the time but sometimes after I eat I still feel a little nauseous. Is this normal? Do I just need to give my body more time to work this all out? My doctor told me to try gluten-free for a month with the hopes that because I'm borderline for Celiac that eating gluten-free will help my stomach issues. So far I'm not so sure it's helping that much.

There is the possibility you could be getting Gluten, as it is difficult to get everything 100% gluten free to begin. Five days is a short time. It takes much longer than that for your intestines to heal if you do have Celiac.

Yup, it does take a while to feel better for some. Some a few days, some a few years. :o .

I would also include dairy in your elimination diet. After a few weeks many people can re-introduce dairy without issue.

And I want to add that the gluten free learning curve is pretty steep. Depend on this site to guide you through these next few weeks. That's why we're here.

And welcome! :D

Thanks for the advice. I figured I just needed to give it more time. Eating gluten free has a big learning curve for sure. I'm hoping to be a quick study! :) I've already replaced plastic containers and cooking utensils. I'm getting ready to order some stuff in bulk online to stock up. I'm just tired of feeling so bad all the time and would like to see some improvement, you know?

it really takes a good 3 to 4 weeks to feel significantly better.... i mean- in that first month- you really cant trust your reactions to anything- you could almost react to ANYTHING..

also, try to eat a really healthy gluten free diet- at least for a few months- try to avoid dairy, and gluten free breads, cereals, and cookies & treats... and even grains/complex carbs... these all can be too much for a sick digestive system to handle

I know everyone is saying to avoid dairy but what about yogurt? It has probiotics which are also good for digestion. Can I eat that? There really aren't many breakfast foods I like and yogurt happens to be one of them.

it just depends on your body- if you have lactose issues &/or casein issues. for ME, personally- i only eat yogurt maybe 2x a week- and i eat a Goat Milk Yogurt- it doesnt seem to bother me at all. now, if i indulge in a mocha, or anything that contains milk- i may have a little "D" the next morning... or maybe even crampy issues soon after i consume it. and cheese gives me negative effects as well.

so, idk... maybe you could try some Goat Milk Yogurt ( i get mine at whole foods).

and also, u say you get nauseaus later after eating- maybe you have some gall bladder issues??? it's common with gluten intolerance. i did maybe 5 liver flushes over the last 6 years... they're a real pain, and i only had 1 real productive one... about 400 stones came out.. or actually like 200 stones- that looked like they had all been cut in 1/2.

liver flushes are a real process tho, dont feel like going in to all the directions. but i would suggest a great tincture for the gall bladder- i get it at

www.sensiblehealth.com

it's called: Gold Coin Grass... it goes into the gall bladder and softens & dissolves any gall stones or stagnant bile... it's great really, and helps with digestion/also works like a "digestive bitter". you take 1 tbsp. 30 min before bfast. only 3 weeks on, then break, and you dont take it during a period, or if on The Pill.

Thanks for all the advice everyone! This might be a little too much information but it also seems like my body is going through some sort of "flush" since I've started this diet. Well, really it's not still just the first few days. I was in the bathroom A LOT on Saturday but now it's back to normal. Anyone else had similar experiences?
