Since cutting out gluten, dairy, and nuts, I've noticed my body doesn't make noises. Besides the obvious ones (insert flatulence joke here), my stomach is quiet after I eat. No gurgles or rumbles. I feel like I went from a 1959 Chevy to a post-modern Lexus engine!

I also noticed my inside feel...well, flatter. I always felt a bit round when I sat, like my insides were doubling up on themselves. It didn't hurt, per se. I was just used to it. Now as I sit here typing this, my lower stomach and intestines feel flat and they more or less seem to "disappear" from my notice.

Curious if anyone else felt the same way, as it is hard to explain to people who do not understand, yet want to figure out why I'm eating the way I am.

I know exactly what you mean. No more gurgling stomach :D except if I get glutened. After the first couple of days gluten free my stomach felt nothing - it was very strange because I was always aware of my stomach and thought it was normal. My son had the same experience.

I just experienced a glutening on Froday and the gurgling is still bothering me today. Not nice! :(

Yeah, even OTHER people have noticed my flatter stomach - which makes me feel kinda bad, but whatever. I had customers congratulating me on my recent pregnancy... <_< , and they felt awful when they learned my last one ended 2 years ago!!

I have been working out 3 times a week for 6 months, I couldn't lose any weight, my stomach didn't get any flatter, blah blah blah. Now its starting to finally work!

No longer starving all the time (i.e. I can go more than 2 hours w/out being hungry!!).

I no longer have constant, painful gas! yeah! I'm sure that goes along with the bloating. The amount of gas I had was horrible. It was worse than my husbands!! LOL!

LOL. I thought the title of this thread was a joke (like we can blame everything, even a badly running car on gluten!).

But yes, my tummy is much quieter. Not any flatter, though... I'm afraid I can't blame my fat entirely on gluten, although I am -slowly-slowly- losing weight since I've been gluten-free whereas I couldn't lose weight to save my life before. I do think becoming overweight had something to do with the gluten... not sure which was the chicken or the egg... because I was a perfectly OK weight and then gained 60 lbs over the course of a single year all the sudden and it was about 3 months after that finally plateaued that the digestive symptoms showed up. I've been gluten-free for about 2.5 years now and I'm "only" about 40 lbs overweight now.

I had a nasty stomach bug a couple weeks back and the noises in my tummy were so loud they kept me awake. Yuck. Never want to go back to that again.

bourbourygmi (excess noise in the intestines) and bloating are very common, CLASSIC signs of celiac disease. not surprising at all.

Yes, indeed, I know exactly what you mean. Same goes for me. Your mention of nuts, however, is disappointing as I am still dealing with the rumbles of a 1959 Chevy even when I'm pretty sure I haven't eaten gluten.

    • Thanks. Still figuring it all out. 
    • I've had plenty of uti's in the past, pre knowing I couldn't eat gluten, so I know how they present in my body. Peeing every 5 minutes a tiny bit with extreme pain. Not fun. They were so bad for awhile I had to take a prophylactic antibiotic every time I had sex, with lots of water. It was like, sorry honey, can't cuddle. Gotta run to take my meds! But thanks for the idea!
    • 1. I think the pain is more diffused than on one side or the other.  2. Sacroiliac joint sounds familiar to me, from when I was doing pt? I think this was something where one side was lower than the other. She would correct it, but it wouldn't stay put for long.  3. I haven't had any scans in ages!  4. Every pair of pants I have are elastic or tie right now! I'm at my mid weight. I guess I've got fat, mid and skinny clothes, lol. I'm losing a bit of weight here and there because one of my meds causes me to have a lower appetite. 5. Are you getting any help from the chiropractor? 6. Thanks so much for this food for thought. I do so hope you find an answer to your issues asap. I hate stuff like this that is seemingly so ambiguous. Much easier to just have kidney stones and get them over with, lol.
    • Many celiacs can eat 10- 20 mg of gluten per day (10-20 ppm in one kilogram of food) without adverse effects.  That is roughly equivalent to 1/16-1/8 teaspoon flour.  More than a trace, but still a small amount.  Some of us cannot handle that amount.
    • Everything with the gluten-free certification must be below 20ppm in a lab test. THAT is much much less then a crumb. Toasters are cheap just get a new ones. If you eat whole foods only your chances are much much less of getting CCed. We normally suggest no gluten-free processed foods (dough, mixes, chips, crackers. breads etc) for the first few months only eating whole foods to boost your healing also remove dairy and oats as they can be hard to process with the initial damage (Diary requires the enzyme lactase which is produced by the tips of the villi in the intestines which are the most damaged).   To make it much easier clean our your microwave really goods, put down some paper towels in the bottom when you use it and get some nordicware microwave cook ware, a new mixing bowl. measure cup, spatula, and some basic eating and cooking utensils and you can start fixing stuff that way starting off without worry. I love steamed veggies, omelettes, etc done this way so tender and easy to digest.  I might also suggest using freezer/butcher paper for a clean prep surface starting off also makes clean up a breeze since you just trash it when done.  You can get the rest of you appliances, pots, pans and everything else changed over later. And this makes it simple to get started....PS crockpot liners are a life saver and making huge pots of stew, or roast in them from raw ingredients is super simple and you can eat on it for days.
