Gluten Free Stomach Pain

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I wasn't sure where to post this but my wife has been trying to get me to eat gluten free bread but every time I do I get massive stomach aches as well as very loose bowel and blood on the toilet paper but not in the bowl. I can't find anyone with similar problems and I just need some help!? Is this normal should gluten free bread do this to me? I can eat gluten free cookies and crackers and brownies but gluten free bread tears me up! Any suggestions?

Hi Monkeyface! Welcome to the boards. We are prolly going to need more information than what you have given. Can you tell us what your eating? Are you still eating gluten in other forms? What brand of gluten-free bread are you eating? Have you seen a doctor? Any tests done? Any other information might be helpful.

What your experiencing in the bathroom, is that every time you go? Recently? Long term? Are you bloating? Pain? (honestly that sounds a lot that what I went and am going through)

It could be soy or dairy... you may develop other (hopefully short lived) intolerances while your autoimmune system is in attack mode. The way I looked at it was I removed the beast my cells were attacking. Everything was good for a very little while. Then my AI system got all ramped up about anything that was similar in protein structure to gluten. I couldn't do egg for awhile either.

Right now, you're best off with whole foods, nothing processed. Root vegetables have been good for me, especially ones I didn't eat regularly before.

So get your starch from a roasted rutabega, your protein from whatever fish, poultry, pork or b

Same here. I can't tolerate many things temporarily until my intestinal lining heals. In my case, on top of gluten, I also get the same reaction right now from rice, corn, eggs, and nightshade plants (potatoes, tomatoes, peppers). I am assured by my Dr that I will be able to eat these other things again in time, and I've read posts on here where people say they can start eating something again. It's encouraging, but it does take time to get there. I sort feel like I'm in boot camp right now, but there will be a payoff!

I will admit that I am not comepletaly gluten free just moved not a whole lot of spare money but the only time this happens is when I eat gluten free bread I've tried several different brands and they all do the same thing the only thing that doesn't upset my stomach is pita....but that has gluten.

Wow! I thought this post could have been my husband. He has had some problems, but I think he has them after he eats at work. He also calls himself monkeyface.

Maybe a simalar problem causes my family not to be able to eat gluten?

I realized it could not have been my husband when Monkey Face said they eat gluten free cookies and stuff. I stay away from sweets.

First bit of advice: cut out the gluten as much as humanly possible.

You're probably having trouble with gluten-free bread because (depending on what it's made of) it can contain a lot of stuff your body probably isn't familiar with yet -bean flours and such. If you're still eating gluten deliberately, then you haven't given your body time to a: heal from all the damage, or b: adjust to all the new things your making it digest. It takes time to heal and to be able to eat a lot of things without problems.

I know eating gluten-free can be expensive and a hassle, but be strict and stick to it now, and you'll feel better much quicker.

As other posters have said, dairy and soy can be a problem as well, but you have to make sure the gluten is gone before you worry about something else affecting you.

Also, when choosing a gluten-free bread, try something as organic as possible, preferably fresh if you can get it (it's pricier, but often better for you in the longrun), or try making your own.

Good luck and feel better!

Peg
