6 months ago I got really sick with what I thought was a virus.After nine days with no food and being so sick and in pain with abdominal bloating sharp pains and what fealt like swelling I went to the hospital where they did an endoscopy and saw inflamation of my stomache. They lost my tissue sample during this test and said it was no big deal. I had a ct scan a ultra sound blood and fecal tests and a hida scan. This showed inflamation of my gallbladder and said it was working at a 17 percent ejection rate. During this time All i was eating was white bread crackers saltines bananas and cheerios. I then had my gallbladder removed hoping this was the culprit. After with no relief I went back to my gi and he said there was nothing more he could do for me and then refered me to loma linda where they ran another endoscopy. This came back on sept 13th national celiac awareness day as possitve for celiacs. I went completely gluten free. Or well here is what I was eating. Gluten free waffles. bananas chicken soup potatos that make me really sick and white rice.. I was feeling a little better but we went ahead and did a smart pill test which is like the gastric emtying study because of how bad the burning was. This came back normal but with slow movement through the colon. Two weeks ago I started getting really loose stools in the morning which turned into Diarhea. By last sunday the pain in my lower abdomin was so bad i was almost passing out. It fealt like last may all over. I started having blood come out of me. I went to the hospital where they did a colonoscopy and found colitis. They prescribed me some anti inflamatories to help keep the inflamation down. Im still really sick and in pain anything I try to eat even just chicken broth or bananas is killing my stomache. it hurts even if i dont eat. Im really discouraged is the celiacs causing this did i get glutened could it be from soy?

Because of leaky gut syndrome, a lot of us have additional food sensitivities. I can't eat gluten, dairy products, or genetically-modified corn or corn derivatives.

From what you're describing, it sounds like you're reacting to corn.

Canned chicken broth often contains corn syrup (and most of them are not gluten free). Chickens themselves can be washed or dipped in corn-based cleaning solutions or dips. Bananas are gassed with corn-based gas to help them ripen. Potatoes are sprayed with a corn-based spray to keep them from sprouting. White rice is enriched with corn-based vitamins. I don't eat very many processed foods, so I don't know about the waffles, but many gluten free flour mixtures contain corn starch.

Google "corn avoidance" and you'll find a ton of info. The Gluten Free Society is another good place to look for info. Most of their patients react to all types of grains, not just gluten.

Do they use corn on organic bananas and chicken? Do you have any suggestions on what to eat I feel like I litterally can't eat anything. The doctors know less than I do

Luddie's thoughts:

I can't eat any grains, including rice. Also, bananas are pretty high in latex which can cause a reaction in some folks. Keep trying. It's very hard to figure it all out, but document everything. Life is no longer about "simple" eating. You must try to correlate everything. Make a chart that matches what you're wanting to keep track of and then remember to fill it in as you go through your day. That helps immensely when you do go to a doctor who knows about all this (which I'm lucky enough to have). Good luck. I'm 78 and its going to take me a long time to heal. You "youngins" heal much faster!

Many of the folks I know with colitis have celiac too. I think (and hope) that you'll be able to get it under control.

Try a whole-foods diet: Eat white rice (plain maybe some salt or olive oil if you can't stand it), chicken or turkey (get plain, raw chicken and cook it plain), green beans, cooked pears. Eat just these things for a few days - breakfast, lunch, dinner. Then slowly add in other things all homemade (not corn, soy, dairy, nuts, beans, peas, legumes, nightshades like potatoes, tomoatoes, eggplant, bell peppers, chilis, eggs) like cooked zuchini and other squashes, brown rice, cooked spinach, sweet potatoes, applesauce, carrots, steak, hamburger. If that is ok, then you could try one of the main allergins like eggs or dairy - or not, if your symptoms aren't fully under control.

Good luck to you.
