Hi, I got my biopsy results 3 weeks ago and immidiatly went gluten free, at first I felt amazing, but after 2 weeks I started to feel awful again. When I went back to the doc he suggested taking dairy out. I am finding that since cutting out dairy I am more bloated and have more cramps than before I started any of the new diet. Is this normal?

I was diagnosed in February and went gluten free and at first felt a lot better but then symptoms returned. I tried taking out dairy too and still had problems. I learned it could also be soy so I am taking out that now. It is not uncommon to have other food intolerances with celiac. It is pretty much a trial and error trying too take out different foods. Did you cut all dairy or just lactose because caesin can also be a problem.

Dairy is a possibility, or ot could be withdrawal from gluten and dairy. Most likely though you are either a) getting cross contaminated with small amounts of gluten, which you are now reacting too since you have gone gluten free (very common to developed increased sensitivity once you take gluten off the menu, has to do with the immune system recovering strength) or

B) you are sensitive to dairy, but have only cut out dairy products. Casein, milk protein, is even more prolific in foods than gluten, and if you are sensitive to it you could be experiencing discomfort because you are still ingesting milk, just not in the form of dairy products.

If you can completetly eliminate the above possibilities, and the problem continues for another month, then you should start looking at other food sensitivities. But since you are newly gluten-free, and only beginning to heal, I suspect that is not the issue.

My bloating hasn't gone away yet. It's not dairy, it's not soy. It's just not gone away yet, though it has gotten considerably smaller! So maybe your body is just different??

But if it is casein itself, only a trial will find that out!

Are you substituting gluten-free baked goods for those with gluten? If you are eating a lot of bread products you might be sensitive to the gums they use. Some people find they cannot tolerate xanthan gum or guar gum, and have reactions similar to being glutened.

Actually the gums are uses in a lot more than just baked goods, they are in lots of frozen foods (including ice creams), beverages, and sauces.
