Digestive Issues Again

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I had been like 5 days gluten free and bowel movements became regular finally after years, then i went lactose free and it got even better stools looks pretty close to normal at this point.. Then i had began eating the trader joes corn tortillas and there plain "just chicken" which is on they're gluten free list, but the container says on it was made in a facility that processes soy, wheat, and milk. I noticed what looked like the tortilla particles in stools. Then after couple days i ate steak (plain panfried) with just olive oil and 3 brussel sprouts, which i know is hard to digest,(also took a acti-syme pill) then i had diarrhea for couple days like 4 bowl movements in the one day and it was airy and greenish stools, i know green from passing through my body fast...

But now the food im eating was just salad baked potato, fried brown rice (no oil) with that "just chicken" yesterday, and ate just scrambled eggs this morning and feels like nothing is digesting again, and i didnt have much gas or anything that was bad.. And i feel kinda full and no where near being able to go to bathroom, its almost like it was before, anyone have any ideas what went wrong?

Does eating foods that I may not be able to digest like the corn tortillas and fatty steak with oil, cause a temporary backup after some diarreah? I feel ok just kinda full, and back to square 1 kinda..

It might just be that you need time to heal. Be nice to your stomach and only eat cooked vegetables for a while and no salads or raw veggies. Also, I could not handle eggs or very much oil in the beginning. Actually I still can't handle eggs, but they effected me very badly in recovery. The processed in a facility that also processes wheat is too close for comfort for me. I don't eat those. Some people do fine with them though, you will just have to see what works for you. Sorry I can't be more help but really it took my intestines and stomach about 2 months to be able to be reliable. Lot's of strange variations until I got far enough away from gluten. I hope you get better answers from others and I hope you feel better soon.

OK thanks for the help, so if I stick to chicken, rice, steamed/boiled veggies, for two months i should be good? If my body doesnt get bloats or gas from eggs does that mean its ok in recovery or just somthing i should be avoiding anyways? And i assume the lactaid lactose free 2% reduced fat +calcium that i just bought might not be a good idea also?? i was gunna try some lactaid with envirokids peanut butter puffs..

It really seems like my body really doesnt like fats, nuts, the corn tortillas, the most seems like what ever doesnt get digested causes me all the discomfort and back up in stomach for days..

O can i eat dried fruits from trader joes??? i bought lots of fresh fruit mandarin oranges and plums but im scared to even eat them, but they have a selection of dried fruits in bags

Hi!

Before I found out all kinds of intolerances that I have-had, I was the same way as you: diarrhea for 3-4 days then break and normal, or hard stool.

I found out that I was allergic to casein - milk in addition to lactose intolerance. I also found out that I have fructose intolerance - able to eat only berries and very small amount of citrus fruit, not able to eat honey, syrup, jelly, dried fruit and the rest of other fruits (it can cause bloathig and even diarrhea).

I had my allergologist tested me for the most common allergens (milk, wheat, eggs, soy, corn, fish ...)because all substitutions had them listed as the ingredience. I was positive only for casein and wheat.

To see, if I had fructose intolerance, I had breathing test at my gastroenterologist office.

When people have diarrhea, everything will clear out from their colon. When we eat something, it will go trough the small intestines between 2-4 hours and trough colon for about 30-40 hours. It takes about 3 days to have a bowl movement after a big D.

You need to drink a lot of water to avoid hard stool after D.

At the beginning I wasn't able to eat salat, or raw vegetable neither. Even some vegetable that were cooked gave me bloathing. They still even today, 11 month on gluten free diet and 10 month on casein free diet.

Here is the list: beans, brussel sprouts, brocolli, cabbage, cauliflower, corn, potatoes. From fruit: apples, pears, peaches, and prunes. When you have fructose intolerance then there are more fruits to be avoided.

How do you know that you have problems with nuts? What are your symptoms? I have allergy to nuts. I had anaphylactic shock from them. I also have asthma and just little traces of nuts will make my throat itchy, or I will start to cough. Another symptom of allergy is diarrhea when you eat something that your body is allergic to.

And one more thing. I also had SIBO. I only tested positive on breathing test for methanol which is the second (optional) gas tested for it. Again it can cause bloathing, constipation, or diarrhea, patients have a problem with digestion of fats and sugar.

I gave you just a few points, maybe somebody would have other ideas.

thanks for the input man, I just try to avoid foods that i see undigested in my stool, and my stools are fatty, fat seems to give me the most bloating and diarrhea.. When i avoid it I have better bowel movements. So mainly gluten and fats, fruits usually just give me a acid like feeling in my throat, as does some vegetables, not sure what thats about...

It is a good place to start- The chicken, rice steamed veggies and the dried fruit should be ok as long as it is gluten free, and you are not sensitive to sulfites, and you do not have fructose intolerance. I wouldn't drink the Lactaid or use other dairy products for a while. The intestinal villi tips are where the enzyme is produced that digests milk/dairy and that is the part that is missing and needs to heal. You could have leaky gut symptoms for quite some time as you are just healing. So lots of foods may seem to cause reactions that won't later. Regarding the eggs, I think it is ok to eat them, unless you feel you are reacting to them. You will have to test and try. Some people find they do better with vegetables that are very well cooked and then pureed..they are easier to digest. It is more work to prepare your food this way, but your stomach might thank you for it. Digestive enzymes are helpful too. Sorry there aren't any clear cut answers, but these things have helped me and I hope they help you too.
