Hello all,

First time poster.i have been diagnosed celiac since January 2012..My one year endoscopy showed villi in partial remission ,but have along way to go.I am having trouble with complex carbs the only ccs I can handle without bad gas and bloating is sweet potatoes and regular potatoes.I am needing other options for my glycogen storage.I am worried about the damage of gluten-free grains since it causes this reaction .I know it's not causing villous atrophy ,but will it set my intestinal healing backwards if I eat these grains .I am obviously fatiguing due to the lack of good complex carbs.IS it also unhealthy to only eat nightshades as my source of carbs as glycogen? Thank you very much for your time.

I have luck with adding blanched vegetables to nut or coconut water based smoothies. Zero to very little fruit. You may try adding bean powder or cooked beans to smoothies? Or, make bean cakes? Lots of recipes out there.

What about squash/pumpkin? I could see both in smoothies or a "pattie". I use leftover squash to make a pan fried pattie to lay fried eggs on...I eat that before a workout.

There are gluten free energy bars, the ones I've had so far are Perfectly Simple (by ZonePerfect), Pure organic, ThinkThin, ProBar and ProMax.

I haven't conducted an extensive study into every flavor, you should verify each one individually by label and by eating only one kind a time to see your actual reaction.

 

Have you really tried all the carbs? There are quite a few of them... Quinoa, amaranth, teff, oats (has to be certified gluten-free though, not just any oats), sorghum, tapioca, corn, beans, legumes, and plain old rice.

You will probably have to prepare it all yourself since restaurants in general can’t be trusted. I’ve gotten quite decent at making my own bread out of these things, most of which I never heard of before becoming gluten intolerant.

I am a silent celiac .I don't know when I'm being glutened,however my joints seem to ache when I do get glutened.I have reactions to any grains especially quinoa.I am not sure if I should still eat it knowing its gluten free and a great source of complex carbs or is it hurting me to eat.I am still in recovery mode.Will it retard my healing to eat it ?

Not all reactions are to gluten.  Some of us have additional intolerances.  I cannot eat quinoa, nor millet or amaranth.  However, I handle sorghum, buckwheat and teff perfectly well.  You will have to identify your own intolerances.  It makes no sense to eat something that makes your joints ache.

Quinoa does need to be washed, it has a natural pesticide which will cause you some reaction if not washed properly. You might be racting to that and not the grain itself.

If you are fatiguing due to the lack of good complex carbs try upping your fat intake . Save your sweet potatoes for post workout and try increasing your consumption of good fats,,,, nuts and seeds .

While the bodys preference may be  complex carbs it will utilize the fats in the same way .

Sweet potatoes are not a nightshade. Regular potatoes are a night shade and can be  highly inflammatory .

Hmm.. You should try a low carb/high fat diet. The first few weeks are tough, but after that you get continuous energy and no need for carbs! For body builders though, they have a "refeed" day, where you eat low fat and high carb to restore your glycogen stores... Just a suggestion, if you can't find much carby things to eat. Ohh, and this diet is also amazing for fat loss! It's actually the diet that helped me realize my gluten intolerance!

I'll try upping my fat intake as well.  If was feeling SO sluggish at the gym for awhile...upped my carb intake and my energy was great...however, my body hates carbs in all other ways (my skin breaks out in seborrhea, I bloat like crazy, get headaches, standard candida reaction stuff).  Doing a massive grocery shopping trip followed by cooking this weekend - guess I'll be stocking up on avocados and almond butter as well.  Desperately need to find the right balance - I hate those gym days where your muscles have the potential to do so much more than your energy stores will allow

    • Hey guys,   I appreciate the input, you are all very sweet and kind.   I do not eat out at all. Only eat food I cook. No alcohol. Only certified gluten-free oats, grains, rice, etc. I have 3 roommates in a little house. I have my own gluten-free section to cook and prepare food but it only does so much. They eat tons of bread and drink lots of beer so it's everywhere. I find myself washing my hands every 30 seconds just to lower my risk. I bite my nails, which I know doesn't help.    And I will look into those magnesium and calming products, those sound nice.   i think yea, the biggest thing I'm looking for here is a way to minimize these symptoms that throw me off. I'm feeling a bit better today, but still extremely sluggish, with a crippling stomach ache.  I guess I'll aim for 7 hours of sleep. That makes sense, I think I need to prioritize that.
    • What was your gluten free diet like? I wonder if, when you were gluten-free, you went more whole food, less processed food? Or did you continue to eat processed food that was just gluten free? One reason I ask is that I have cut way back on grains and processed foods like gluten-free bread, but occasionally allow myself a treat which is a gluten-free biscuit southern-style from the gluten-free bakery nearby. There is no better sleeping pill in the world! I am knocked out. I’m not saying you’re not Celiac, I’m just curious what your diet was replaced with. You’re definitely reacting to something, and in a way you’re lucky to know what that is! Plumbago
    • Equal parts Hershey Coco Powder and a sweetener with a pinch of salt. Super easy to make your own.  I like adding a bit to my coffee with almond milk, and lakanto sugar free maple, or a bit of monk fruit or stevia. 
      PS you might want to drop dairy milk. The enzymes to break it down come from the tips of the villi in your intestines....these are damaged first. You can probably reintroduce in a few months but we normally suggest dropping it, and going to a whole foods only diet when first going gluten free. Welcome to the community by the way here are some useful links.

    • I was just diagnosed yesterday via lab testing and was quite shocked.  I have been looking for gluten free replacements for things as I am a definite bread-lover.  I have been using the Non-Sugar-Added Nesquik every day since long before it the name change from Nestle's Quik and just checked the label this morning.  I does say "May contain wheat"....not that there may cross contamination, but since i am so new to this I don't know if those are essentially the same thing.   I guess I will need to be a little more strict in the beginning and then try adding things back in a few months that may not be definite offenders.   If it doesn;t work, I will have to find a substitute.  I did find Carnation Breakfast Essentials Light Start is Gluten Free, but much more expensive for using every day.  But apparently almost everything gluten-free is if it is not naturally that way.....
    • If I get cc -insomnia will manifest as one of the symptoms and knock me off sleep schedule. I also get fatigue. I have multiple symptoms. If diet and personal care under control , environmental or new exposure event? Are solely In school/classes or are you on rotation or observation in field? Are you handling or dispensing  any meds for patients that have gluten in it?. Even if gloved are you sensitive to airborne "dust " pharmaceutical med or Otc meds with gluten filler even when pouring can possibly effect you in my opinion. Maybe gloves/mask would help. Just a thought. Good luck.
