I was diagnosed as having Celiacs in December (altough they found no damage in my upper intestine). I have felt much better since going gluten-free. A week ago, I was very bad and had some things I should not have had. Since then it is as if my digestive system has had a meltdown! I am painfully bloated/gassy, with serious cramping and nasea. My BF are hard and pellet-like. This has been going on a week. Any suggestions to help treat these symptoms? Nothing seems to help. Anyone experience this?

Sounds to me like this is a REALLY good lesson as to why you shouldn't eat gluten. <_< Cheating does damage. There are too many nasty things that can come from not saying on the gluten free diet. If the big C word (cancer) doesn't scare you then I don't know what will. Cancer, lupus, infertility, diabetes etc etc, those are NOT nice things. I don't think eating a doughnut or a piece of pizza is worth it.

Time is about all that will "cure" your reaction that your body is going through. You can try drinking lots of water, eat good foods, some people say that peppermint teas help calm their stomach.

Basically when we cheat we pay the consequences. You have to let the reaction run its course. There are only things we can do to help settle the stomach. Take enzymes during and after meals, take probiotics, liquid vitamins, and teas like tummy mint ,peppermint, and ginger teas work well with soothing the stomach. It's really not worth it all the risks involved and feeling like crap. Find good brands of things you can have.

You will not get better if you are only 50% or 80 % gluten free. The reason why you probably are not getting better yet is because you are eating things u shouldn't. You need to be 100% gluten free.

Do you also know of everything gluten can be hidden under?

Here is a link to safe and forbidden foods to help with a guideline since you are fairy new to the diet. You may or may not already know this info.

Everytime something tempts you think about the consequences to it. Your body works against itself when you eat gluten. It is slowly killing you if you continue to have frequent mistakes. It takes a while for gluten to get out of your system as well. Also cancers and other serious issues come from not following the diet.

I hope you feel better soon :D

    • Thanks guys! Ill defintley ask about the full thyroid panel. I did antibodies for those thyroid ones a year ago do i have to get that again.  Thanks Ennis for those recommandations I will resort back to my food diary!
    • To add to the good advice above. I think your husband has to take it on himself to communicate with his parents that this is a serious, medically diagnosed condition that their grandson has to live with for the rest of his life. He needs them to back you up, be supportive etc. On no account should you be cast as the fussy daughter-in-law who has to have her crazy notions indulged - they need to know that their son is 100% on board with this and that the pair of you are united. Just one other point. It's very difficult for most people to conceptualise celiac, they tend to think of it as they would a problem with spicy food say. Something that you should probably avoid but a little bit now and then won't hurt. So without getting scientific, it would be good if your husband could get that key point across. That a little is just about as bad as a lot when the body's immune system is involved.  That there can't be any compromises or cheating. Even the suggestion will be harmful for your son in adjusting. Also that you understand that their house cannot be a gluten-free environment and you don't expect them to change their lives whilst your there - but that you need to take reasonable precautions to keep your son safe.  I think as long as people understand there's reasons for all the precautions etc its easier for them to accept. They may not agree with it or understand it but they can at least understand your thought process.  Finally, get as much of this communicating done in advance so you, your husband and your son can just enjoy himself without constant references to his diet.  Hope it goes well!
    • I felt worse after I restarted gluten free diet after my challenge and had a rougher time than I had first time round. So I don't think its unusual. Give your body time to recover. Eat well, lots of good whole foods, maybe a decent multivitamin etc.  Go easy on processed gluten-free stuff for awhile and avoid oats as well.  best of luck  
    • It's a Yorkshire staple! I used to pass their then 'factory' just about every day when I lived in Sheffield, though apparently they've moved now and the Uni are going to turn their old place into a pub.   The relish is lovely and marked gluten free and suitable for coeliacs on the bottle for added reassurance. It's nice to add a bit of zip to sauces etc.  I think Morrisons stock it countrywide Cristiana but if you do struggle getting hold of some PM me and I'll post you a bottle.  
    • Reusable toaster bags....get them on Amazon.  Makes for easier travel.  Squeeze bottle for condiments are best.  Once a bag of chips are opened in the pantry, we are done.
