Hi

 

I have felt bloated for years and never really feel hungry so I decided to cut wheat out of my diet, this is my third week 'wheat free' still feel bloated but not as bad as I did before, Since giving up wheat I burp all time, where as I rarely did before. Is this a normal reaction ?

Welcome.  :)

 

I don't know about the burping, but loss of bloating is a pretty sure sign that wheat is a problem for you.

 

Do you think you have celiac disease?  Celiac is an autoimmune reaction to the protein (gliadin/gluten) in grains such as wheat, barley, rye, and others.  If you think it is celiac disease, and you want to be tested, you need to be eating gluten (about 1-2 slices of bread per day) in the 8-12 weeks prior to testing so you might not want to give up gluten/wheat yet. Some people find it awful to reintroduce gluten after being gluten-free for a while - it's something to consider.

 

If you are not planning on testing, you might want to restrict our diet further. If you are reacting to wheat, it can either be a wheat allergy (there is no such thing as a gluten allergy) or a gluten sensitivity (celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity [NCGS]). If you have a gluten sensitivity, you are probably still getting small amounts of gluten in your diet so you will not reap the benefits of a gluten-free diet.  

 

Best wishes.  :)

First, apologies for stating the obvious if any of this information seems rudimentary to you. But here are the basics as they relate to the burping portion of your question.

Burping can definitely be the result of a change in diet. As the bacteria that make up our gut flora do their job in aiding in digestion, they release gases. Some happen quickly and cause burping, others later in the process after food leaves the stomach causing flatulence. Some bacteria are considered bad, some good, and even yeast plays a role in keeping things in balance.

Studies have shown that changes in gut flora can react to changes in diet in as little as 24 hours. Some bacteria prefer to eat meat or dairy and multiply, others thrive on fruits or vegetables. Many people take probiotics in order to increase the good bacteria in their gut. Others find nutritional sources such as yogurt, but various raw veggies also impart good bacteria into our systems.

If a source of the burping doesn't have an obvious cause just remembering back to what you ate, then a food diary may help narrow it down. I'd expect burping to happen within just a few hours of eating the food that triggers it. But burping in itself is not considered dangerous.

Burping can also be caused by simply swallowing air. Chewing gum, smoking, or drinking carbonated beverages can all make you burp ... and can cause bloating if the air doesn't get released before passing into your intestines.

A diet heavy in carbs can cause bloating if they aren't well digested. This could be a reason why someone may see an improvement in bloating symptoms if they try a gluten-free diet but don't have Celiac.

H. Pylori (a bad bacteria) is also known to cause both burping and bloating along with other symptoms.

Low stomach acid can cause both bloating and burping.

Some sugar alcohols are not well tolerated by some people and may cause burping.

Hormones can affect bloating as well, though I'm guessing you're already aware of cyclical changes, and bloating likely wouldn't be the only symptom if you had a hormone imbalance. But there are some other female issues that can cause you to feel bloated.

And there are other food intolerances other than gluten that may also cause bloating as a symptom.

If I were you, I'd probably start with doing some more research on a variety of topics. You know yourself best so you can weed out some of the possible causes of your bloating or burping, realize that you may also have some other symptoms, or learn a few things to avoid (such as chewing gum or carbonated beverages) or discover that one of your favorite foods is a known culprit for some of your problems.

Based on just symptoms of bloating, I would not presume that Celiac was the cause. And that is a good thing considering how difficult living gluten free can be. However, since you've already started down the road of paying more attention to what you eat, keeping a food/symptom diary is a great way to help discover possible sources of problems.

If the problem were just a matter of the gut flora being out of whack, eating meals that have variety can help, ie. not having meals that are all carbs, all sugars, all meat, etc. And one thing that could help anyone is to research the foods that contain probiotics naturally and add more of them to your diet. Taking a probiotic pill helps some people, but causes stomach upset for others because many of them just contain too much of a good thing.

    • I have been gluten free for 15 months.  I was ttg amd Iga positive.  My ttg was 100 which maxed out the reading.  Range was  maybe 0-7.  I have been retested and all are within the 0-7 range.  I do not know if I carry the gene, never been tested. No relatives with celiac.  I live in Iowa, USA.
    • Sounds like gluten ataxia, or the form of celiac I have where it also attacks my nervous system and brain. I would get a celiac test if I was you, you have to be eating at least half a slice of bread or a few crackers for 12 weeks before hand and go to your doctor and ask for a full celiac panel. From there you need to be eating it for still and get a endoscope with biopsies to check for intestinal damage. Now to help with the mental issues I will tell your right now a good b-vitamin supplement will help you with the fog and depression a bit. I suggest Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological support one. Take 1 tbsp each 3 times a day. You will notice a huge difference in it. Being liquid it is easier absorbed by your body, if you have celaic then your intestines will also be damaged making where getting these nutrients is more difficult for you body. NOW as to the cheesy bread I hear you on that. I love eating Juilans bakery toasted read with dayia cheese on it.... I was using hte provolone for awhile but am now using the almond bread with daiya dairy free swiss. Love a good cheesy toast and egg white open sandwich with some avocado myself. I also posted a recipe in the baking section where you melt the daiya dairy free cheese shreds and mix them in with the flour blend I use that is gluten-free and make cheesy bread rolls out of them. I have a garlic and cheddar one.....you name just inspired the idea of using a bit of turkey bacon in the cheddar biscuit version.....would be epic
    • I have used Voltaren before, and I experienced that little rush afterward. I never had any reaction to it, and I can't even use makeup that has wheat germ oil in it. I have also had some fairly violent reactions to other medications. That little rush faded after a while, but after an increase in the strength of the gel I did feel it again for a day or two. So from my perspective, it should be ok.
    • I know some people who have tried straw bale gardening, especially for strawberries. I don't know anyone that has had much success with it. All of them thought it was more trouble than it was worth.
    • Hello everyone! This site is awesome! I've been experiencing anxiety, depression and an over all since of non well being. Although I have been going through some rough times but this has lasted for 6 long months. My I've had many blood tests done and this one was concerning me. My CBC iron panel thyroid panel and all others have come out just fine. Does anyone have insight on the following results. Please help and thank you! I also tested positive for some Corrine food allergies. IgE Food w/Component Reflex II Immunoglobulin A, Qn, Serum 435 HIGH   Ref Range: 90-386 mg/dL t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA <2 Ref Range: 0-3 Negative 0 - 3 Weak Positive 4 - 10 Positive >10 . Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) has been identified as the endomysial antigen. Studies have demonstr- ated that endomysial IgA antibodies have over 99% specificity for gluten sensitive enteropathy. Endomysial Antibody IgA   Negative     Ref Range: Negative
