Nausea Getting Worse?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I got diagnosed about 1.5 weeks ago, and have been gluten free for just over 2 weeks now (after getting my blood test my Dr suggested to immediately stop eating gluten since I was showing every symptom of Celiac and was starting to lose weight regardless of food intake). The first week or so I kept feeling better and better every day! The bloating went down, my depression lifted and I felt like someone had "turned on the switch" in my brain. I finally felt normal again. For the past few days I've been noticing worse and worse nausea upon waking up in the morning, and today at lunch I could barely keep my food down a few minutes after finishing my (gluten-free!) sandwich. I've seriously not felt that nauseous since I had the stomach flu when I was a kid. My boyfriend said it was scary how I became very greenish and then red in the face in a matter of a couple minutes. I've done my best to de-glutenize my kitchen and bought a new toaster for myself so I don't think cc could be the culprit. I've been lactose intolerant therefore lactose free for a year now so it's not related to that. Is this just a normal part of the healing process, or should I be concerned?

Edit: I forgot to add that I've also checked all of my cosmetics and toothpaste and they are gluten free as well.

Hi and welcome. Glad to hear you are feeling better (or were feeling better).

Gluten-free sandwich? Are you eating a gluten-free bread with a lot of xanthan gum for texture? Some people don't tolerate that stuff very well and get nauseous.

I assume morning sickness is not a possibility? Sometimes coincidences happen.

I'd suggest you set the gluten-free substitute foods aside for a bit and try eating meats, vegetables, fruit, nuts, beans, eggs, and other naturally gluten-free whole foods.

Thanks for the quick response! I'm eating Udi's bread since I've heard a lot of people saying it's delicious (it is!) and a sandwich is pretty easy to pack for lunch at work. Plus I'd rather not lose too much more weight, so I was hoping having some sort of carbs in my diet could help me get back to normal. I'll try cutting that though and see what happens. :)

As far as the morning sickness, I've been on birth control for years for other reasons. It would have to be immaculate anyway since boyfriend and I are abstaining until we get married in a few years! ;)

Unfortunately, it's Udi's that definitely gets some people. They use a lot of gums to get the lovely texture and around the board we think that's why. Sorry to tell you to try cutting out the nice gluten-free bread but it might help.

And LOL @ immaculate conception!
