before, I would get gassy and bloated maybe 2-3 times a month, now, I lucky if I can go one whole day. 

 

Do the symptons get worse and / or more frequent with time?

Mine surely did.  I recall noticing my tummy bloating when I was in college.  Did it bloat, or didn't it I wondered?  Skip forward 30 years and my tummy often was mistaken for pregnant and nothing worked anymore to bring it down.

 

Yet there were years when I felt fairly good for a while.

 

I hope you will get off gluten soon  My thought is it is not real fun as an experiment to see if symptoms get worse and worse.  Most of us just did it cause we didn't know better. Did you get tested?

 

Or perhaps you meant that gluten free you are experiencing more bloating? I notice bloating more, because I am not always bloated anymore.

Mine did too. And then new symptoms would show up and then they got worse over time too.... It just slowly sneaks up on you until it gets really hard to ignore, if not impossible. I didn't realize how bad I felt until I started to feel better.

You've been a forum member for sometime now.  Were you diagnosed?  Have you been following a gluten-free diet?  Do you have any food allergies/intolerances?

I was for a period of time, and then try this and try that.  I still don't eat bread, but that's just a start.

 

I will be getting a colonoscopy and upper endoscope exams next month, and I'm going to ask for biopsies to be taken at both ends of my small intestines.  I am positive for the genitic test. but no other test.

Be sure to keep on eating gluten every day until your endoscopy!

    • The University of Chicago recommends re-testing 3 to six months after going gluten free and then annually.  Most GIs wisely wait because although you can theoretically heal that fast, it takes TIME to master the gluten free diet.  It can take up to a year or longer for antibodies to come down.  As someone who has more than one autoimmune issue like myself (and only a DGP IgA that has ever been elevated), I think that impacts healing  and how quickly antibodies come down.   My recent endoscopy (5 years post diagnosis) revealed a healed small intestine, yet my DGP IgA was still at 80 (which was over 200 last April when I was somehow exposed to gluten).   Hang in there!  Wait six more months to get retested.  Look for other signs of healing (like anemia resolving, improve gut issues).  
    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
    • Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulled pork with slaw and fries.  
    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
    • ....post is 12 years old, please check the dates, On a side note to this topic, I had no gluten issues with tide but it caused itching for other reasons I went with Rockin Green and Mollys Suds for a natural detergent years ago. You get like 70-90loads from a bag try, Amazon, Luckyvitamin, or Thrive for them.
