Newly Diagnosed And A Sudden Relapse Of Symptoms
0

7 posts in this topic

Was diagnosed with celiac disease only two months ago and from that date undertook a completely gluten free diet. My most severe symptom before this was extreme bloating (looking 7 months pregnant) and a lot of pain. Within 3 days of going gluten free my stomach had ease and was going down :lol:

However - only last week suddenly overnight my stomach blew up again - and I am now completely unsure as to what to do next. I've just been diagnosed as anaemic as well and am on iron tablets form the doctor for two months. Some people say I should cut out dairy, some say it could be cereals, some say it could be rice cakes - everybody is telling me something different and I'm left very confused, still severely bloated and in a lot of pain - can anybody tell me if they had this and what they did?

Any advice appreciated

A lot of Celiacs react to Dairy. Some can eventually add it back in. If you are certain that you did not get cross contaminated, then I would suspect Dairy. Iron pills can totally screw with your digestive tract. I took "Gentle Iron" by Solgar and it didnt bother me.

Hello

I had the same problem and it was all because of lactose/casein and an endless list of other food intolerances AND IBS. So I just had a test for food intolerances and when I exluded the guilty ingredients my belly stopped existing.

Just to let you know that till now I thought that everyone was feeling abdominal pain/bloating after eating. I thought it was normal.....Silly me...

You are not getting any gluten by accident, are you?

And yes lactose/casein intolerance is very common for celiacs.

Good luck

Just to echo what has been said here about dairy. I also had lots of problems with bloating, constipation etc until I gave up dairy.

There is this lab here in greece that is running some tests , they call them nutritest. Without blood taking they measure the reaction of your body to some food combinations and they give you a list of your intolerances. I think my english is not good enough to explain the process in a better way....It cost me 250 euros to check 180 food ingredients. This can also be done with blood taking tests. It is 99% accurate (for me I think 100%.....)

I don't know the way you do it in your country but it was worth it for sure!!

when I realised I was GI I dropped dairy at the same time as gluten, as well as most carbs and sugar. I thought "in for a penny, in for a pound!".

I had been tootling along fairly well for the last 3 months, getting odd reactions that I thought may be to other foods or just because my gut was still healing, but on Saturday I had a blatantly obvious reaction to gluten. I'm not sure what it was that did it but I suspect some oats that I used in some cookies I made.

Either I reacted to the oats or to some kind of contamination. I didn't sleep all night and was pretty dodgy for a couple days. Then Tuesday it happened again! This time I think it was some little nut and seed cookies that also have oats in them. I have been having them all the way through but lately I noticed that after one or two my stomach wasn't very happy.

What I am thinking is that I have probably been getting some gluten contamination from them all the way through, but suspect it is likely that my immune system is starting to kick back in now and that is why I am starting to get a lot more sensitive. Foods I thought were safe, aren't.

You may have the same problem. I am trying to completely avoid anything that might be a potential trigger or might even remotely have been contaminated.

Just out of interest, because I have had to now remove the oat milk I was having (the jury's out on soy and rice milk is too high in carbs - I am diabetic) I decided to try some cream in my (dairy-free!) hot choc this morning. My guts have been grumbling all afternoon and I have been passing the most obnoxious gas so that is definitely still a no-no. I might try the lactofree milk but although I am pretty sure my problem is lactose, it might be casein too.

Those who are Celiac/GI are typically reactive to other foods particularly dairy as the enzymes that produce lactase are situated at the tips of the villi and they usually are the first things to go in the damage process, mind you I do think you would have reacted to it sooner, but these things have a habit of not doing what we expect!

I still favour some kind of contamination, so look closely at what you are having and perhaps try a basic diet with nothing processed for a while to see if it makes any difference. I am doing the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and it does seem to help (the sweet oaty cookie things are not allowed so me eating them served me right!!!)

    • You have multiple problems, and may have several different diagnoses. I needed sinus surgery, and was referred to a teaching hospital University of Iowa. I had to jump through all of the surgeon's hoops by seeing specialists in other related departments. He told me, "Sometimes we think we are allergic to foods and we are not."  After being tested negative for those offensive foods, I figured out that I have histamine sensitivity to these foods. An appointment with the specialist in the Allergy and Immunology Dept confirmed it. I was told to eat a low histamine diet, and to avoid those foods that had been offensive, to keep a  food diary, and occasionally to challenge myself with a food I had not been able to eat. My father was diagnosed celiac from an intestinal biopsy. I had stopped eating wheat and oats, because they made me itch, etc. Other offensive foods to me are tomatoes, raspberries, strawberries, egg, banana, cantaloupe, mushroom, canned or not fresh fish. I have read to eat fresh food. Avoid bruised fruit. Even aged meat contains histamine. There are foods that contain histamine and foods that cause the release of histamine. No leftovers better. I don't eat dairy, because I have a reaction to yogurt. Any foods that are fermented contain histamine. Apples make me cough. It isn't fun eating this way, but until a solution is discovered, I must follow this low histamine diet. I am keeping a food diary. Vary your diet. Be positive. Be proactive. By the way, an oral histamine doesn't help. I don't know what does, but I take one capsule of Diamine oxidase (DAO) before eating, to tie up the histamine before it reaches my gut. You may want to read up on histamine sensitivity and a low histamine diet. Please ask for a referral to a large teaching hospital specialist. May I suggest you begin with Endocrinology Dept. They  will refer you to their other specialists concerning your symptoms. However, you will have your endocrinologist as your home specialist. He will coordinate your care. 
    • Thanks for the welcome. Endoscopy results came in the morning confirming Celiac, but they also found cells called Eosinophils which apparently has something to do with white blood cells. They want to do another scope in 8 weeks to see if they're still there.
    • Oh. Please get a referral to a large teaching hospital. The specialists there will give you answers.  Take care.
