With hemorrhoids, if your bowels get really irritated, like with diarrhea or constipation, bloody stools can happen. It can range from a bit of red on the tissue paper to full on disturbingly red toilet bowl water. Could it be a hemi? They're harmless, just a, well.... pain in the butt. I hope that's all it is for you.

Best wishes.

Hi,

Yes, I get blood in stool from gluten and dairy. It doesn't last three weeks for me but long enough. Dairy doesn't do it right away but if I eat it for a week, oops.

now if i accidently have gluten i have bloody diarrhea for about 3 weeks.is this common for anyone else?

I have celiac disease for 30 years, I don't have UC. I cheated in 2007 and again in 2012 (suspect CC) but bloody stool due to celiac disease? NO.

Hope this helps.

I have the same issue, and can’t find any info on if this happens to others. It is not hemroids and will happen even with passing gas and 5/6 times per day for weeks following ingestion of gluten or dairy. I’m also thinking it may have something to do with folic acid. I will also get nosebleeds after consuming even gluten and dairy free foods that have folic acid in them. Anyone else?

You just responded to a post from 2013 for more relevant responses in the future make a new thread.

Regarding your issues I had bloody stool for years....thought it was something else perhaps related to celiac, but the issue for me turned out to be I had also developed Ulcerative Colitis and flare ups with it caused bleeding. For most flare ups with it are caused by gluten, dairy, soy, etc. For me and for some other triggers exist like glucose, fructose, starchy carbs, sugars in general. I went on a ketogenic diet to  deal with it and it works wonders. Might want to look into it. BTW other things to help treat it are marshmallow root capsules (nature way), and drinking aloe vera juice to help coat and sooth the intestines, collagen, and glucosomine are others. I heard slippery elm might work help but I just use the others for my regime with diet.

Have you had a colonoscopy? If not it would be a good idea to contact the GI doctor that diagnosed you about the bleeding. You could have something more than celiac going on.  I pass blood for a day or two after being glutened but having this going on even when just passing gas and having it last for weeks really needs to be evaluated.  Until you can see your doctor make sure you are not taking asprin or any other blood thinning drug or supplement.

Yes, I had the colonoscopy that diagnosing me with celiac (as well as dna test by allergy specialist with all 3 genetic markers) the bleeding wasn’t going on at the time of the colonoscopy but started not long after. My pcp sent me back to the gi, but he didn’t redo anything and just said it’s probably hemorrhoids and prescribed me cream. I tried to explain the connection of when it happens and how I can have regular stool, soft stool, gas and it start, or lots of times have hard stool or diahrea with absense of trigger foods and it never bleed. He didn’t do any exam and basically just told me I should go to the Mayo Clinic.

Colonoscopies can't dx you with celiac. Only endoscopies.

No, it is not common, but you can reach the small intestine from the colon.   ?

Sorry if I’m not very technical, but they went in both directions and checked everything and diagnosed me celiac from what they found. I’ve also had igg testing and ige testing, and like I said, dna testing through the allergy specialist, and my own 23&me dna test that also matched up with everything else saying celiac and dairy intolerant, along with a ton of other allergies and intolerances, and the mth-fr gene mutation and Hashimoto’s hypothyroid.

If you are passing more than a couple drops of blood you need to find another GI doctor for a second opinion. If your present doctor gets offended then you need to drop him like a hot rock.  If you can easily get to the Mayo clinic then go there. If not then find another locally.  Is it possible you are continually reglutening yourself? There is a lot to the gluten-free lifestyle that involves more than just checking to make sure the foods are gluten free. How it is prepared is also important and well as stuff like not kissing gluten eaters without them brushing their teeth first, using gluten containly lotions on your hands and then eating finger foods and much more. By the way an upper scope is called an endoscopy. You had both an endoscopy and a colonoscopy at diaagnosis. Do get your medical records also with copies of labs and endo/colonoscope results.

My son had horrible bloody stools and stomach pain as a toddler. He became very anemic. We did an elimination diet and found that stopping dairy helped but he wasn't completely better until he stopped eating wheat. Once he healed, he could have dairy with no problems. I think dairy just exacerbated the problem when he had damage from the gluten. Since then he has been glutened a few times (family members who didn't believe in celiac :angry:, or parent volunteers at school who didn't know what gluten was) and he had bloody stools and pain each time. He just gets regular diarrhea and cramps from cross contamination like fries from a fryer shared with gluten. The GI doctor did a scope of some kind when he was a baby because of the severity of the bleeding but no blood test. I think it's too late to test now because he would have to eat gluten to test.
