Could I Possibly Have Celiac?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I know this probably gets asked a lot so I apologize, but I figured everyone in here would have the most experience.

I'm wondering if this could be a gluten intolerance, or celiac. It doesn't seem severe. Here are my problems. I've always had a "bad stomach" In high school I had all kinds of tests done, upper GI etc and nothing was found. Looking back now I'm sure it was the beginning of anxiety, which I still have but I'm medicated. I started trying to eat better and exercise recently. That included a pretty low carb diet. Lots of chicken, yogurt, cheeses etc. Well Thursday night, I decided to make some soup out of broth I had frozen. There was no meat in it, so I decided to add noodles for some bulk, along with mixed veggies. Friday I was horribly gassy and had several very large bowel movements, which were pretty light in color compared to normal. Friday night before I went to bed I felt very nauseated. Saturday I had more large bms. Not diarrhea though. I didn't feel completely better until Saturday evening. The other thing that happens is that I sometimes feel jittery after a bm, like my blood sugar is low. I feel weak, sweaty, etc. Saturday night, I had eaten 30 minutes before, had a bm and checked my sugar (I had gestational diabetes with my son and still have the meter). It was 135. Like I said I had just eaten. So my sugar was not low. Saturday I did eat a sub, on a regular roll so that probably didn't help. Sunday and today I've cut back on my carbs and I feel better. It seems like I can eat SOME carbs, like a sandwich on a regular roll, or a few pieces of pizza without getting REALLY sick. I still feel sluggish and yucky, but I always just blamed that on the carbs. I don't know if it's all connected but I just feel horrible. This has happened before where I have a bm and right after I feel like this. What could cause that? Could it be related to the carbs I ate after not having eaten many for a while? Could it be gluten intolerance? Does that do all these things??

How long did you do low carb? I don't know aobut most yogurts (I don't like yogurt) but the few I've checked have gluten except the Yoplait. But if you were eating low carb for any length of time, you may have, basically, been doing Gluten Free. I personally did gluten free for a short time, then my accidental glutening was awful. Worse than ever. So from my little knowledge, that may be what happened.

I've been eating weight watchers brand yogurt. I had a coupon so I tried it. It is actually gluten free. I didn't buy it for that reason but it is. Actually before I bought that, I always stuck to yoplait. So none of the yogurt I was eating had gluten.

Adding to my first post, whenever I would make pasta at home, I'd always have to go to the bathroom a lot for the next few days. I thought it was the tomato sauce but now I'm wondering if it was the pasta!

Most yogurts in the US don't have gluten. Some will say gluten-free on them. That does not mean the others contain gluten or even have gluten in the same processing plant.
