I was diagnosed with Celiac Nov. 2012.  I began the gluten-free diet right off.  I am still having a lot of GI issues and I have to run to the bathroom a lot for a sick stomach (D).  Any recommendations on foods I can eat that are easy to digest and will help with the healing process?  I am keeping a food journal to try and figure out what is agreeing and disagreeing with my body.  Also, I gave up dairy, coffee, and alcohol to try and help promote the healing. I am also taking a special mulitvitamin that has probiotics and digestive enzymes formulated for people with Celiac.  Thanks for any and all help.

Hey Laralou!  And Welcome!!

 

Certainly by this time you should be feeling some relief.  Good choice to elimate coffee, dairy and alcohol. I would recommend that you elimiated all processed foods and stick to the out side of the grocery store....with only naturally gluten free foods. Watch out for gluten free processed foods, althought gluten free, they carry other ingredients which some find bothersome.

 

Shampoos, lotions, lipsticks if containing gluten can make you ill.  Have you checked on your mulivitamin and digestive enzyme for gluten.  It's doubful, but possible.  Be cautious about anything that comes in contact with your mouth.  Things a simple as a shared toaster could be causing your issues.

 

If you are certain that you have been as closes as you can to be  gluten free for an extended period of time, there may be other ingredients that you might eliminate, one at a time.

 

Good luck to you.

Thanks for the advice.  I have gone through all of my suppliments, beauty products and have gotten a new toaster, pans and cooking utensils.  I am just thinking it is going to take a long time to heal.  I use to have "D" up to 20 times a day.  Now having it 5 times a day, but I don't have the bloated gut and pain like I use to so I am encouraged that I am seeing improvement.  The crazy thing is I am waking up at night now with GI issues and am having to run to the bathroom.  I use to always have my bathroom issues in the morning. I have been eating lots of fruits and veggies, but I am wondering if this may be too hard on my gut at this time.  I was sick for 7 years so I think this just may be a slow process in helping my gut to heal.  I will look into making broths like Pricklypear recommended.  Rice cereal and almond milk has been my go to the last few days.  I have started taking Immodium again to control symptoms.  Anyone else have a similar story with crazy GI issues of "D" and still getting sick after going gluten free for 3 months or longer?

It sounds like you are on the right track.  Healing can be different for each person, so try to be patient with your body...especially on those "off" days.

 

I was diagnosed with Celiac the Fall of 2011, so I am almost one year ahead of you.  I also had lots of GI issues & pain.  I was really sick & didn't have much of an appetite...had lost 22lbs in a few weeks from malabsoption...undiagnosed Celiac had affected many things in my body.  The first year was a rollercoaster of learning, adjusting, dr. apts, & healing. 

 

The one meal I lived on for months until I could handle more food was homeade chicken soup.  So simple...I boiled down a whole chicken on the stove for about 2-3 hours(cover the chicken with water in a big pot), took the meat off, added cooked brown rice & frozen veggies.  I froze the soup in ziplock baggies so I would have an easy lunch/supper.  I also ate fresh or frozen fruit...bananas, blueberries,etc.  Chicken breasts, grilled salmon...all easy to digest.  I stayed away from citric, tomato based, & dairy...you may find you have other food intollerances.  I found that I had a tough time with raw veggies, so I bought a juicer & started juicing anti-inflammatory veggies. 

 

So, here I am almost 1 1/2 years later & I am doing soooo much better!  Before diagnosis, I didn't know much about Celiac Disease.  Now, this lifestyle of g.free living is 2nd nature.  I am learning to be patient with my body.  I still have an "off" day now & then, but not nearly as bad as an "off" day a year ago(where I would be in bed for the day).  Our bodies are made to heal from MOST things (I know, not everything) with time.

 

The other thing I would encourage is "move" your body...walk, walk, walk...or whatever you can handle without overdoing it.  Find a local support group or connect locally with people that eat g.free when you are ready...it can be fun exchanging recipe ideas, laughing at horrible products you waste money on, etc. 

 

Keep us posted on how you are doing  :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Give your body time to heal...it can takehow long you were Celiac without knowing it & how much damage you have.

    • Have you ruled out the common Keratosis Pilaris (KP) also know as chicken skin?   https://www.aad.org/public/diseases/bumps-and-growths/keratosis-pilaris
    • Squirmingitch brought up the macaroon idea, I find Zsweet, and Swerve Sugar Free sweeteners do not throw me out of keto and I use them to make my "treats" You might sub it in these if your like that idea. I personally just use coconut and almond meal in my baked goods with high fat nuts like walnuts and pecans (Walnuts and pecans have so much oil in them you can butter then in a blender or food processes into a pour able sauce that can be used as a dressing or mixed with eggs and coconut flour into a dough)

      Also brought up batch beans....bad idea for keto, but to integrate a keto version, try cooking a roast in a crock pot, or a whole bunch of chicken breast. You can eat on it for a week just serve it over greens. Or Miracle Rice (zero carb rice) Batch cooking will become a life saver. (works with some foods) and meal preps give you time to just grab a pre fixed meal out of the fridge and go if you need to do something later in the day. First year I was gluten free I did this daily for myself before meat became a issue (I look forward to doing it again).
        CB brings up the issue of selenium and melotonin. YES this is a huge thing and completely evaded my thoughts. I consume massive amounts of seeds, like pumpkin, sancha inchi, hemp all high in these in addition to flax and chia. I tend to rotate my seeds to prevent intolerance issues and only the roasted ones. Look up GERBS allergen friendly foods for pumpkin, hemp, flax, and chia.  I suggest the ground flax under meals as the seeds I notice have issues, I personally always have to cook my chia, and flax seeds into egg dishes or I can not eat them. If you blend them in with the eggs  1-2tbsp seed meal to 1 1/2 cups eggs -1/2 cup almond milk 2tbsp coconut flour and some almond butter and stevia to taste let it set up 5-10mins then blend again you have a batter for pancakes/waffles/doughnuts/breading batter. >.> something like this I whim it as a chef.

      I was thinking of another think I like to snack on. Rythem Super foods roasted kale and the kale chips in moderation. I also crush the kale chips up and sprinkle over eggs as a condiment, Adds plenty of vitamins and the ranch flavor for this is amazing.




       
    • No, not really. I had done my homework, so I reduced all grains substancially to give my guts a chance to heal. I increased all vegetables substancially and am basically going high fat, low carb.  That is why I had a few hicups along the way, my diet was too high in FODMAPs (nuts, fruit, avocados) but I made the necessary adjustments.  I think my hairloss is finally slowing down, but my skin is getting worse, pimply on chest and neck.
    • You might want to see about getting the blood test done again and getting a full celiac panel. You have to be consuming gluten daily for 12 weeks before the test. At least half a slice of bread a day. And keep eating gluten til you get the endoscope. The endoscope with biopsy is the golden standard as some people do not show up on the blood test.

      You mentioned itchiness and redness, look up DH and tell me if it looks like. If you have DH then you HAVE celiac. They test it by taking a skin biopsy from a clear spot next to one of the lesions and testing it.

      I have seen some others with this disease distend where they look pregnant when they get glutened. I have some distention but never that bad, just a obvious bump that pressing out. 
    • Juca hun.....you just responded and tried talking to a person that has been gone for 12 years....please check the date
