Newbie Here. Possible Celiac...

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I am a 29 year old male and have been having strange symptoms for about 9 months now.

I can't seem to digest meat. I find that when I eat chicken I have to pass very hot and smelly wind soon after I eat, sometimes even before I have finished the meal.

The same happens with beef sometimes.

The past few times that I have went out with my friends for a few beers I have experienced the need to go to the toilet for a number 2 in the morning time and when I do I get palpitations whilst on the toilet, go into a cold sweat and momentarily pass out. I am thinking this could be a reaction to the yeast in beer.

I also am very sensitive to caffeine, so much so that I drink only de-caffinated coffee and tea. 2 cups of coffee would give me terrible palpitations for quite a long time.

I am reasonably fit and visit my local gym 3 times per week to do mostly cardio.

Can anyone help?

Thanks.

Sounds like you might have both celiac and another condition (which starts with a g that i can't think of which has a hard time digesting meats). Only way to know is to go in and get tested.

Many thanks for the reply.

From reading about symptoms it would seem that it's celiac or irritable bowel syndrome.

I will be making an appointment with my GP this week.

Meat can be hard to digest, so if your system is irritated from gluten or some other cause it will give you problems.

If you're noticing odd toilet symptoms after drinking beer, that would be consistant with Celiac or gluten intollerance. Beer is made from barley malt.

Ask your Dr. for a Celiac panel blood test. Most Docs won't recognize the symptoms you have as a gluten problem. You'll probably have to suggest it.

Good luck to you! I hope you get some answers so you can start feeling better.

Giardia might be the G word she was thinking of....it's a possibility.

Also, Celiac/Gluten Intolerance can cause gut permeability which allows food particles to pass directly into the bloodstream causing all kinds of problems with inflammation and pain. It wreaks havoc on the system. It can make you think you are intolerant or allergic to things you really are not allergic or intolerant of...it's just that wheat has so damaged the intestine that food cannot be absorbed properly and it results in all sorts of unpleasantness. you might find that you can digest meat again if you heal your gut first. Beer will be out if it is Celiac.

Secondary food intolerances are common in folks with Celiac/Gluten Intolerance....sometimes they go away when the intestines are healed and digestion returns to normal.

When I first suspected something was wrong with me, I thought it was meat and fat but I wasn't able to link it consistantly. I too felt like the meat was heavy on my stomach and not digesting properly. What I found out thought is that alot of what I was eating was having a hard time digesting as my system was messed up. When I took dairy and glutens out of my diet and went to a very strick whole foods, nothing processed, all natural, all bio and all gluten-free diet and began to see change. I did this for 3 weeks with the glutens, added it in and knew then I had an issue. Stayed away from dairy for 2 months and again realized too it was an issue.

If you think this could be celiac or a gluten intolerance I would suggest testing while you are still taking in the glutens. The tests are not real dependable so you still may have issues eventhough your tests don't show it and your doc tells you that it couldn't be what was causing the issues.

I keep all my meat protions to less than 6 oz per serving and it has helped.
