As well as having coeliac disease I have IBS, I managed the condition quite well until I had to stop eating gluten when diagnosed with Coeliacs. Now I am having stomach cramps etc due to not getting enough fibre in my diet. How do people manage to find sufficient fibre for the diet when most of it is found in wheat based foods?

The following are all good sources of fiber:

 

  • Beans, lentils and peas
  • Fresh and dried fruits – particularly if the skins are eaten
  • Vegetables – particularly if the skins are eaten
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Jacket potatoes with skins, including sweet potatoes
  • Psyllium husks which can be added to baking or cereals

 

There are also the standbys of Metamucil and such to increase fiber if you are finding it is a problem.  Also, you need to be sure to drink enough water to prevent constipation.

Thanks for replying.  I already eat beans, jacket potatoes, fresh fruit and nuts, it's difficult getting 30g of fibre a day though. I am having difficulty in finding a source of dried fruit which has not been contaminated with gluten or wheat.  I was about to buy some prunes in a health store yesterday when I was told they were produced on a line which also uses wheat, I have the same problem with lentils.  I'm also beginning to think I have a problem with flax seed as whenever I eat anything with it in, I feel like I've been punched in the stomach and get griping pains.

 

I notice there are a lot of products you cannot eat, how on earth do you cope?

I've added metamucil into my morning tea and afternoon water.  It's been just enough to get me up to where I need to be, and is really helping me out.

 I actually manage to eat pretty well - just not food that others prepare :ph34r: .  I am adding back little bits of my intolerances - nibbling around the edges, so to speak.  :D  Can now tolerate some potato starch in breads (like Udi's :) ), also corn starch because all the lectins have been refined out of it.  Can have soy lecithin which gave me back a lot of things.  Still haven't challenged nightshades or legumes, but have been able to tolerate them when consumed accidentally by using a product called Lectin Lock which provides the sugars for those pesky lectins to bind to (instead of to my cell walls) :o

It's not something I'm familiar with, but I will certainly check it out! Thanks!

You certainly seem very positive about it all. I don't let others prepare my food either. I like to know exactly where it's been! Some people just don't 'get' how careful we need to be, especially when it comes to cross-contamination. There are a few things I can't eat too, which have nothing to do with Coeliacs, but no where near as challenging as your diet.

    • Thank you all for replying. It's good to know that it's not just me. It gives me (and hopefully the other noobs) some comfort to know that it's normal for the ups and downs to happen. I keep trying to tell myself to be patient with it but it's so hard to be able to look down the road further than the moment when you're in the middle of it. I forgot to mention, yeah, I have had a full vitamin, mineral, and general blood panel done and everything came back normal. Regardless I still supplement with a good (and expensive) multivitamin plus sublingual D3 and B12 every day, and naturally I scrutinize the labels on those and everything else for anything even non-gluten that sounds fishy, including the possibility of CC at the factory. I guess it will just take longer to stabilize.
    • Thank you for your reply.  I did make sure to keep eating gluten before getting tested. I'm still unsure whether or not I should ask my doctor to run the rest of the tests in the celiac panel.  
    • LOL, re: trousers vs. pants.   Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front.   I also read that Vit D helps digestion;  can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin.   My Dr. just told me to resume 2000 IU per day, and I do think it's made a slight difference. Have also read that bone broth is helpful, its gelatinous nature supposedly coats the stomach.   I know bone broth has not been formally studied much, but again, probably can't hurt and might help.
    • I'd try the gluten free diet for a few months to see if that helps at all. Can't hurt. If it doesn't help I'd try a low FODMAP meat and veggies diet.
    • A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be taking percations goods, I still use freezer paper for a clean safe work surface even in my gluten free home lol. Anyway top things to look for and consider are magnesium and B vitamin deficiencies . I take my in a drink to avoid pills and the sublingual forms are more easily absorbed by the body. I normally suggest 2 brand or forms of magnesium and you need to find the one that works for you there. They are Natural Vitality Calm, a magnesium citrate in a powder, you add it to a warm drink let it fizz and drink it. Magnesium citrate can be a bit harsh on some peoples guts, I suggest you start off with 1/4 tsp and work your way up to the full dose over a week, if you get D then your taking too much and need to back down or the citrate version might be too rough for you. In which case I suggest Doctors Best, bit more off tasting and mixes best with a juice but with the powdered form of it you do not have to worry about digestion issues, I just found the citrate to seem to help with my nerve issues more. B Vitamins, I take Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological Support, I take 1 tbsp of each 2-3 times a day before meals. Really helps with everything and being in liquid forms I just add to tea and drink it. There are many other vitamins to look into and we each have ones we have issues with more then others, getting tested might help, NOTE magnesium and B vitamins sometimes show normal but you will still find you need supplementation...bit of a odd thing I found. Yeah the neurological effects are  huge thing with me as my issues with this disease cause my immune system to attack my nervous system and brain....accumulated brain and nerve damage over the years. Had a whole mental trauma issues with them, my gastro issues back then were mostly just constipation. NOW days I get the Vomiting, D, gas, bloat, and then constipation for a week along with neurological issues which NOW if I get exposed to eating straight gluten (happened twice in 3 years to this extent) I loose motor control and collapse unable to move, normally while vomiting violently to the point of blood coming up (this was what happened last June 2016 after eating out).
