Two Months Gluten Free, Still Have Issues

Recommended Posts

If you just started it, yes, you can stop it but if you have been taking it for a while, you need to ramp down.

I really think you are just still pretty rocky right now, hon.

I never take anything to stop the D when I get it (which is rare now), I want whatever is giving me grief OUT :lol: , but if you need to take something, Pepto Bismal is okay.

Just don't freak when you see the black stool that results. It's just what happens from that stuff.

He has ruled out other bowel diseases, right?

When was the SIBO treated?

Rifaxim for 10 days. I have thought about asking him to treat it again, although he has never done the breath test for it. Diagnosed based on symptoms.

Okay, so he treated it without testing for it. No follow up?

But it was an antibiotic, so now you need PRObiotics. okay?

Maybe you are having some die off?

Stay the course, hon. Drink a lot of water so you do not get dehydrated. Avoid too much sugary stuff like brownies for now and if you still have problems, go back and see him.

Hope you feel better in a day or two. Periods can wreak extra havoc for sure.

Well I had a follow up appointment and I told him I had felt better on the antibiotic. I'll give it a day or two and then contact him again I guess. Thanks for your help!

Wish I had more answers for you, but you are right in wanting to make sure you're on the right path here. Give him a call.

I hope you feel better soon!

    Chances are if you have lumps on your body for years and the Dr. isn't concerned they're probably not lymph nodes. Chronically swollen lymph nodes would be something every Dr. would be concerned with.  Chances are you just have cysts ...
    It's different  for everyone, it can be a month or maybe a year. Most probably within a few months. This is assuming the symptoms are in fact related to gluten, which they may not be. 
    Hi Laura I'm so pleased you found answers.  This is very encouraging.  Seven years on from my own diagnosis I wish I could have some vitamin and mineral screening, I'm sure I'm still deficient. Cristiana
