I have collagenous colitis (not celiac) which can also be treated with a gluten free diet in addition to eliminating any other food intolerances. I finally got the D and vomiting under control by eliminating gluten, all grains including corn and rice, potatos, dairy, soy, nuts, beans, cruciferous veggies, onions+garlic, sulphites, caffeine, spices and acidic foods. Very strict diet, but I figured it's just for a short time until the gut heals. I have been symptom free for 3 months so I thought it was safe to start adding foods back in. I started eating potatoes in December and everything was fine initially. Then in Feb. things gradually got worse and worse until constant D about 2 weeks ago. I was taking a lot of Imodium in order to be able to work. I quit eating potatos a week ago and things are fine again, no symptoms. ARRGGHH! It's great feeling good and being symptom free, but I might scream if I have to eat carrots, squash and bananas for my carbs permanently. Maybe it takes years not months for the gut to heal and I need to be more patient. I hope so.

It took a year for me to be able to handle distilled vinegar, annatto, and some other ingredients. Give yourself some more time and consider trying other easy on the tummy foods.

I agree with mommida in giving it more time. At this point, I'd be willing to do anything. Since you've found a diet that makes you feel good, you're ahead of me! As I was reading your strict diet restrictions, it sounded very much like my restrictions, except I must also exclude meat, fish, and eggs. I'm also trying to cut back on processed foods, even eliminate them if I can (within reason, I mean, I don't wanna be an idiot and end up dieing of malnutrition). I was wondering if you could tell me what it was you do eat, with a reasonably limited amount of effort. Who knows! Maybe I even have your condition, but am not yet willing to revisit the doctor to find out because I've already spent more than my share of time and money with doctors over the years, and I don't wanna go through that again. I'm perfectly willing to eliminate anything and everything from my diet, as long as there's something else I can eat instead so I don't have to spend so much time and effort wondering what in the world I can eat. If I can just get started, maybe I can create new dishes and meal plans from there, and I can help find other ways to get the nutriment we need. I haven't eliminated caffeine, potatoes, rice, corn, soy, beans, or some acidic foods, and I don't know what cruciferous veggies are (nor does my spelling dictionary), nor sulphites (in terms of food), but like I said, I'd be willing if it would just make me feel better :) I'd love to be able to help out, but I need a starting point.

I really heavily on eggs, fish and meat for calories (fruits and veggies don't have much) so the diet won't help much for you. Perhaps though, you can replace eggs, fish, meat with nuts. However, nuts can be hard to digest.

Breakfast: boiled eggs + canned fruit (peaches, pears, mangos or berries) or if I have more time I make pancakes from 2 eggs + 2 bananas in the blender.

Lunch: can of tuna or sardines and lots of cooked carrots.

Snacks: avocado or more canned fruit or bananas

Dinner: meat + squash

I'd prefer to not eat so much meat, but I wouldn't have enough calories to live on if I didn't. I react strongly to beans (including soy), nuts (even nut butters) and dairy so there isn't much choice for proteins.

Cruciferous veggies are cabbage, cauliflower, turnips broccoli etc. These are high fiber and hard to digest.

Eliminating caffeine might be a good start. Soy and beans can cause problems too, but this wouldn't leave you much to eat.

    • I do not have DH, but if I have ever had it I would not remember. From what i've read I'm in the beginning demographic of when DH would appear (Which is apparently 20-40; I'm 20) but from what I can tell I don't have anything other than hyperpigmentation on my legs and a few bumps and similar things on my legs. Never had DH. My aunt has a weird rash that doesn't go away and her doctor doesn't know what it is but I wouldn't know unless I saw it again. I have 2 family members with conditions related to celiac. My mother, who is schizophrenic, and my aunt who developed MS in her 50's and has had it for 20 years, which I hear is very rare. My mother's side of the family also has a host of issues including thyroid related and etc, but the general consensus was that these things were part of aging and nothing else. I myself have had things like post-nasal drip and other minor symptoms for years because I just assumed they were normal. There have also been a couple of instances where I ate something like a PB&J in my childhood and threw it back up for no reason. I'm known to be a picky eater, and I've always avoided certain foods and condiments that make me gag like ketchup. I'm probably just going on, but I never really felt too normal, but I just kinda figured everyone was like that.
    • If the citrate version bothers you in small amounts as low as 1/2tsp then you need to change to Magnesium Glycinate like Doctors best. Some people do not react well to the citrate. NOTE Citrate version of magnesium is used as a laxative in higher doses and sold in stores that way mixed up in bottles.    Some of us just react that way to it, I use both myself on rotation, and actually use the citrate version sometimes to help move along gut when it needs that extra boost. As raven suggested eating more in foods is also a options. But I Found NO amount of food consumption could boost my levels where I needed them not even with stuff like pea protein and pumpkin seed protein. Also on the glycinate version try halving the dose starting off, perhaps drinking it with less juice or liquid. Magnesium makes your body retain water naturally so can give a bit of a heart burn sensation. This is normal, mine normally passes within a hour to two, I also drink it warm to help it start going through my gut faster and promote it hurry on along.    You might want to play with when and how to take it, perhaps it might work better with a food? >.> I have used glycinate as a food additive in homemade dips, and ice cream as it has a doughish flavor when mixed into something sweet.
    • Can you give her some magnesium rich foods instead of the supplement?  Foods are always the best way to get nutrients. Here is a link to a list http://www.healthbeckon.com/magnesium-rich-foods/
    • Thanks for pointing the date out .
    • Thyroid disorders are common with those who have celiac disease.  Being hypothyroid can cause fatigue.  Anemia is another cause for fatigue and is very common for this with celiac disease.  Have those two issues been ruled out?
