Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Last night i had a quite a few plums and felt bloated for 3 hours, now i had only 3 with some spaghetti sauce and my COLON get bloated, what the hell?

 

Also, can fruits get cross contamination too and how common is it if yes.

 

This really suck, about a week ago i was finally getting better, more energy no more bloating, could drink milk, last night i had a chocolate bar and had every symptom of being lactose intolerant, it also feel I am having harder time with coffee now, and still no FREAKING energy, I had cut corn since today and replaced it with VEGGIES VEGGIES FRUITS FRUITS beef and eeg still feel like crap.

 

How long does this has to go for before I can do a normal day? I sleep 10 hours now and even 2 days ago I slept 14 and was totally drained.

Were you used to eating a lot of fruits and veggies before you went gluten free? If you are eating a lot more raw fruits and veggies suddenly that can cause bloating. Early on it seems anything can for some of us. It takes a while to heal and some find it helpful to go with well cooked fruits and veggies and mild foods for a bit. You may also be reacting to the milk. It might be a good idea to go with a safe milk alternative for a bit.

It takes time to heal so hang in there.

Some extra protein might help with the energy, having hard boiled eggs in the fridge can be helpful

Sounds like time to check in with your doctor then, probably OK, but maybe not worth risking

It could just be the fruit. I know a few fruits bother me, apples and pears make me quite bloated and crampy... No idea why.

How long have you been gluten free? For many of us going gluten-free means a complete change of what we eat, meaning that you've changed the type of fuel your body is used to, and it might require some time to get used to it. Withdrawal is always tough. 

I remember when I used to go through cleansing diets. The first days would be the toughest. I'd be so tired and out of energy, until the body gets used to it, then things go back to normal. Changing to a gluten-free diet is a lot more intense than a simple cleansing diet.

 

If the fruit is washed properly then you can't get cc from it. 

But don't blame everything on CC. The intestines can get agitated, upset or bloated from many things and not just gluten.

When I went to the gastroenterologist, he thought maybe my symptoms might be IBS. (I know they are from gluten). Anyway, he suggested I look up the FODMAP diet. This may be of use to you. There are suggestions of certain foods to avoid: gluten, dairy, honey, some fruits, etc.

A couple months ago i got candida, which is a yeast infection. And doctors couldnt explain why i getting that, because that happens to low immune systems, which im suspecting celiac. But candida causes bloating, difficulty swallowing, white spots in mouth, and they feed off of sugar and carbs. Before going glutenfree i was having recurrent candida. Im just making a suggestion, u should research it.

    • Hi ,  i was thinking that an intolerance and allergy were about the same thing really but sorry if im wrong. I know celiac is an autoimmune disease but was thinking that is different again, more serious and was erring on the side of my possible issue not being that but more of the intolerance type. Clearly im just guessing though and dont know about this stuff , hence the posting for advice, The problem with trying to get tested is that in bolivia there are very limited tests and doctors are unreliable so you have to rely on yourself to certain degree. I have heard of a test here and was planning on looking into that but it made sense to try to get some opinions and advice online first so Im in a better position to understand if any tests here are actually reliable enough. I dont think there is an issue with travel parasites etc as I have already taken the medications thats would kill them like a course of albendazol and praziquantel and that was after a 2 week anti parasite cleanse. That did feel like it got rid of anything and the only issue I have been left with is this pain as described.
    • Karen's point about parasites etc is a good one. They can cause a lot of symptoms similar to celiac /ncgs as you probably know.  At 11 I had my appendix removed following pain in the lower right side of my torso. On waking up the surgeon told me that it was actually ok, when I asked what caused the pain I think they said it was probably glandular - they didn't know. Later I got pains in the stomach, usually a dull ache although I could get a fierce stabbing pain there too. When I went gluten free those pains stopped. as did my chronic sciatic backache which Ive subsequently realised was probably due to inflammed tissues pressing on nerves. I would ask the Bolivian doctors if they can get any celiac blood testing done. The standard ttg may not be beyond their labs. can't hurt to ask? Give your diet my guess is you've had a lot of gluten for a long time. If its an issue for you expect a bumpy ride when removing it.  Best of luck!  
    • You can supplement if you want to.  IF you are low on iron or vitamin D - then some vitamins might be helpful.   The treatment for Celiac disease is a strict gluten free diet.  Some people need to cut out lactose for a few months, too.  The villi that are damaged in Celiac are the part that helps you digest lactose.  So, until they are healed, it might help to skip milk , cream, etc.     http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/are-there-vitamins-created-specifically-for-nutrient-deficiencies-in-celiac-patients-2/  
    • First - there is no such thing as a "gluten allergy".  Celiac is an autoimmune disease.  Just so you understand. It could be Celiac or a different gluten intolerance.  I am guessing you aren't going to get tested for Celiac disease.  IF it were me, I would be more concerned that maybe there is still some sort of infection or parasite from the places you have been.  I think I would try to get a good work-up for that first.
    • Hello, I've just been diagnosed with celiac.  I have gone gluten free, but am wondering what protocol to use to heal the damage to my gut?  Any suggestions on what might work.   Thank you!
