Following a colonoscopy, I was told to get more fiber because of diverticulosis and hemorrhoids.

I know it can be difficult when you have celiac disease to get enough fiber. Aside from food, are there supplements that can be taken that are safe?

Thanks for you time and trouble in replying!

I find that if you just stick to whole foods, and pick high fiber ones, there's no problem getting 30g a day (on a 1500 cal/day diet). Quinoa is nice and high in fiber. Dried fruit is as well (and you don't have to go with prunes - in fact, dates are higher in fiber). Soy nuts have a fair amount of fiber in them as well. Kidney beans are also a good source, as are a lot of other beans (like garbanzos made into hummus!). Buckwheat and millet are also good sources. Not to mention things like tapioca flour. (Del-Mi's Arrowroot Animal Cookies have 5g fiber per serving!)

Dried fruits are great but be careful with dried apricots, try and get ones that are truly sundried and not treaded with sulfur dioxide (or unsulfered) (sulfering helps to maintain the apricot colour and mild plumpness).

Sulfer dioxide treated apricots can cause painful bloating, bad cramps and gas that could knock you out cold - or at least make you and others wish you had been. :wacko:

Soak the unsulfered apricots or apricot halfs in water over night, and they will become nice and plump.

Dried apricots are also a really good source of iron - another bonus for those of us deficient due to celiac disease.

Is there such a thing as corn bran? Where do you get it? Can't find anywhere.

I have bought Rice Bran and it works great. I mix it in a smoothy, so I can't taste it too much. I belive the brand is Ener-G. I buy it at Whole Foods Market, but have seen it in other Heath food stores.

HI

Thanks for the reply, I have the rice bran, but I want to make something (my own creation/receipe) and I want to use corn bran. Anyone know of a manufacturer of corn bran?

Thanks.

    • Tests to measure serum endomysial antibodies (EMA) and antibodies to tissue transglutaminase (tTG) were developed to screen for celiac disease in patients who are actively eating gluten. However, doctors often use them to monitor patients on a gluten-free diet. Now, making sure celiac patients are successfully following a gluten-free diet is important, as unconscious gluten ingestion can lead to complications over time. But how accurate are these tests for assessing gluten-free compliance in celiac patients? View the full article
    • The GP has sent me to the opticians for an eye test. My blood pressure is ok and my last diabetes test a year ago was absolutely fine. She doesn't think it sounds like MS although she admitted she wasn't sure about what else it could be.  Unfortunately I don't have much faith in my local doctors surgery. I've seen 7 different doctors the last 7 times I've visited. So you never get a chance to build up any kind of rapport or knowledge. This latest doctor was a locum and I don't think they want to commit to anything hence sending me to the optician. It's not the end of the world, I was due an eye test anyway, but no further along with an answer.  Indeed that is interesting. I'll add parasitic microbes to my list of woes  
    • Hi,  I have never posted here before but am having difficulty understanding my results. Based on the celiac panel my doctor ordered, everything was normal except for my IgA, which was too high. The other results I do not know the specific numbers of because the lab just reported >20, for example,  and not the actual number. I have a ridiculous amount of symptoms of celiac, and I have been totally cleared of everything else. Chron's and all of the IBD testing came back negative and I don't really have as many symptoms of those either. My doctor said I may still have a gluten intolerance though. I am quite honestly sick of feeling so unwell all of the time and there is no other explanation as all of my other bloodwork was perfect. Is it possible that maybe my body hasn't had enough damage from the gluten so the results were negative? I just want to understand what is going on and no one seems to know because other than these awful symptoms I am totally healthy. I just hope someone can provide me with some knowledge on this as I find it quite confusing. Should I just assume it is a gluten intolerance and cut out gluten or should I get retested? Thank you for any help. 
    • You're most welcome Everyone here was once in your position and remembers just how confusing and sometimes scary it could be. The good news is that as you get more experienced in the diet that feeling lifts. The noisy tummy quietens down. You may get unexpected health bonuses, I had chronic lower back pain for 20 years which suddenly resolved, who would've guessed?  Use this site and the experiences of the people on it to help you through the tough times. If you're ever feeling isolated or excluded from your gluten munching friends come on here and vent, we've been there   It may not always feel like it and at times you'll feel some grief and resentment, but you will look back on this time as the moment you got your life back. There's no cheesecake, bagel, pizza or doughnut in the world that can rival that feeling. 
    • Sounds like she's not into the whole thyroid idea, but is willing to check the t4. She also wants to check for other autoimmune diseases as she said some of my symptoms could match up with other issues. So I'm eagerly awaiting the blood draw.
