I know some people experience major bloating after eating foods with gluten in them...but I have been bloated almost non stop, even after cutting gluten out of my diet. 

 

My stomach is huge, I have no idea why the bloating won't go down. I am pretty careful, even going so far as to eliminate hand sanitizers and shampoos with gluten in them. I read that digestive supplements and probiotics as well as drinking more water can help the bloat go down. Does anyone else have any other tips? For awhile I couldn't drink much water...it was making me sick..but now I am gradually able to drink more water again, thankfully. Can anyone recommend good probiotics/digestive enzymes that actually work for bloating? It seems like there's always something wrong. I know my stomach is far too big for my size...it looks like I'm pregnant.. please help? :(

 

I also have gall stones, not sure if that matters...

 

I am a little under a year and a half gluten free now. Only recently have I discovered horrible bloating, gas and pain after eating large amounts of dairy. I seem to be ok with a yogurt here and there, a little cheese and half and half in my coffee. But if I eat a bowl of ice cream, or gluten-free Mac and Cheese, gluten-free pizza....I get very bloated. 

last night, I had ice cream and I was so bloated, gassy and sick to my stomach that I just went right to bed. Every so often I try to eat it, with the same results. I guess I should just give up. I was actually ok going Gluten Free, it was very non-eventful and I don't have cravings. But cutting Dairy hurts.

There are non-dairy ice creams available at your health food store. One of them is made with coconut "cream". I've never tried it but a friend of mine has and she loved it. :)

I think the coconut ice cream brand is called "So Delicious".  There are also gelato's and ices available as an alternative to dairy based stuff.

Hi all!

 

The non dairy ice cream "So Delicious" (made with coconut milk - though they have a soy variety as well) IS very good! I got off the SCD diet when frustrated with it - but I have gone lactose free and mostly dairy free, apart from my almond cheese (no lactose, but has casein) I noticed that yeast seems to trigger GI symptoms..(bloating, "the big D") AND it seemed to make my skin issues worse...so I am off yeast as well. 

 

The bloating comes and goes. :( I never noticed my stomach so big as it was when my primary care doctor told me to try Gas-x for the bloat. It MADE me gassy, (which I took as a good sign, I thought it was kind of cleansing all of the gas out?) and then when I looked in the mirror I wanted to cry. My stomach was HUGE. HUGGGEE. Needless to say, I never touched those pills again. 

 

I think my bloating has to do with the lactose intolerance, the yeast issue, and I also just found out I have abdominal hernia (per my naturopathic doctor) but he says there are non surgical methods to treat that. I bet that is a good source of why I am bloated. (I'm very 'tender' and sore when the doctors push down on my stomach, and it feels kind of hard) So I'm guessing that once the hernia is corrected, the bloating will get better. I am not as consistently bloated as I once was, which is a good sign! I've also been advised to try digestive enzymes called Vitalzyme..anyone have luck with these? They claim to help digest gluten (and also casein)...not that I would ever intentionally eat gluten, but I wonder if it helps with CC issues?

I just want to say. I have found out Soy is a problem with me. Evidently Soy is very CC'd with Gluten because of the equipment shared. I was CC'd with it a few months ago. You may want to look into that. It is so hard to figure all this out! After a while (It depends on the person) you may be able to get Lactose and corn and stuff back. I am afraid I will not get Soy back. I guess it depends on the person.

    • It's no secret that nearly all traditionally brewed beers contain barley. The flavor and body barley imparts on traditional beers is partly responsible for their rich, full taste. Finding alternatives to barley that are suitable for brewing gluten-free beer has been a challenge. One solution has been to brew beers with traditional barley ingredients, and then use a combination of enzyme action and filtration to render a final product that test below 20ppm gluten required for gluten-free products.

    • First have you been tested for celiac disease? Any doctor can do the blood test but you have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the test to work, nut much just a half slice of bread a day. You should get this tested, the high constipation, coughing stuff up was very common for me before diagnosis. The coughing stuff up for me was from a allergy that developed I did not know of, the mucus was draining down my throat and choking me at times, and was constantly running a fever and night sweats. I was constipated for 4-10 days average back then and drinking plenty of liquids did not help in the least. Your gut rumbling could be many things, celiac is one, SIBO is another especially with the bad breath. in your case it could be related to constipation causing rotting, fermenting, and bacterial overgrowth of the waste in your system. Now to deal with the immediate symptoms, your constipation is also a sign of magnesium deficiency, I imagine you might have noticed some other symptoms from these. Now normally I would suggest either the Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors Best which is easier on the stomach. In your case I straight up suggest the Natural Vitality Calm it is a Magnesium Citrate and works a bit like a laxative. Start with 1/4 tsp twice a day in a beverage, I like the orange or the cherry in a hot green tea or you can try it in a juice. Up the dose slowly over a periods of a week to the full dose or perhaps a little more til you get a bit looser stool.     You mentioned the mucus in the stool 2 things cause this normally. Undigested fats, and inflammation/irritation causing the body to produce the mucus to help defend itself and purge the irritants. A doctor can probably tell you more but I might suggest a digestive enzyme in the mean time. I like to use a super papaya enzyme before and after a meal, find them on amazon. Jarrow also makes full enzyme complex that can help. Other thoughts if your on dairy, stop, with the constipation, and other issues this is a equation for trouble and you can reintroduce it in a few months when you clear up and see if it bothers you then. The bad breath can be a sign of lactose intolerance/digestive issues with dairy also. If it comes you you have celiac then you would have your explanation here as the villi which produce the enzymes to break down lactose are damaged/destroyed first causing most to develop a temporary lactose intolerance which for some goes away after a few months of healing. B-vitamin folic acid, and niacin will be a huge help also with some things. but will we get into that a bit later feel free to look up Liquid Health Stress & Energy if you thing it might be relevant at this point it is what I use 3 times a day with another blend they have.
    • Some of your symptoms sound like my ulcers.  I take carafate before every meal now and they are much better.  I have 3 ulcers possibly caused by taking iron supplements.  They are worse when I eat spicy food and dairy. I might be wrong but for your sake I hope it's just ulcers.  They were found by endoscopy.
    • The yellow is probably fat you are not absorbing.  The pain could be from your intestines being inflamed.  Go see the gastroenterologist.  The ER did not help me with any of those symptoms.  Good thing it's clear so you know it's not your appendix or any other vital organ.  It takes time but probiotics, bone broth and  vitamin D and b 12 help. My pain was mainly my muscles giving out from the malabsorption.
    • Hi, this has been a postcode lottery for some time, some health authorities support it others don't. The govt has recently indicated that doctors should no longer prescribe food to celiacs, you should check with your local GP to see if they are still doing this or not. if you want some advice on where to shop just ask
