Symptoms Returning After Initial Cure

8 posts in this topic

When I first went on a gluten-free diet, my symptoms disappeared almost immediately. Because of bad advice from the diagnosing physician, I did cheat on the diet. Still, I felt great for almost 2 years and then symptoms started coming back. I got wiser and tightened up my diet, but am still having problems with diarrhea and bloating. Does gluten sensitivity become more severe with time? I have read about some of the drastic measures some people have to take. My family is not gluten free, so I guess cc might be an issue. I just can't figure out why the miracle cure went away. I am also off of dairy.

From my experience you become MORE INTOLERANT the longer you are away from gluten. When I am contaminated I get diarrhea and bloating, when I am glutened I am TERRIBLE like food poisoning. I was able to eat gluten for 25 years now I can even stand a few crumbs... My doctor told me it was because I am now healed or healthier so the exposer is more dramatic and damaging a healthy system. The only other things is another food allergy, we build up intolerance with damage, you may be eating something your body can't handle as well. But I would tighten up your diet, check labeling, did ingredients change on some packaging? and be more diligent of CC. Then try some allergy testing if all else fails. Eggs were causing me horrible bloating that I didn't know I had developed an allergy to them!

also look at corn and soy... they can be problematic or contaminated..

its true- your reactions do get stronger.. and vary.. i actually got a little itchy the other day eating Diamond Pecan Nut thins.. its measured as <20ppm..

annoying I KNOW.. years ago when i went on Atkins- with occasional wheat cheats- i felt FANTASTIC... but also- we cant always equate our reactions to what exactly is happening inside our bodies. last year- i was still eating gluten.. very light... felt fine for the most part.. occasional cramping.. but i saw things when i went to the bathroom that i just simply cannot describe on here.. :o sorry tmi

Heh - I think the gluten community could easily make a horror movie with what we've seen.

Terror in the Bathroom - it's beyond description. :P

You say your family is not gluten free. Have you gotten your own dedicated toaster, cutting boards and do you use great care to make sure you are not sharing stuff like nut butters, condiments etc that can have been double dipped by someone eating gluten? Your reactions are getting more severe because because when you are getting glutened the antibodies are flaring and your body is reacting to the reactivation of those antibodies.

There is no cure for celiac disease. When ya got it, ya got it.

Lots of us seem to get more sensitive after going gluten-free, reacting to tiny amounts of cc. When you get rid of all gluten and gluten cross-contamination, you will most likely feel better. There are also other food intolerances that crop up for some of us though, like soy, nightshades, dairy etc... So you may be reacting to some other food also.

Funny you would mention eggs! I have had to stop eating eggs as an entree. I seem to do ok if egg is a minor ingredient in a baked good and I take it easy. It seems to be egg whites in particular that bother me. Thanks for the input.

Yeah, I have been working on eliminating cc, especially since reading a lot of you guy's posts before joining the forum. I don't know if it was a coincidence, but I went camping for a couple of days recently and felt a lot better. Got away from my kitchen (we're slobs-crumbs, noodles and wheat flour sometimes all over the place) and ate out of paper plates and only brought gluten free food. I thought that going gluten-free was really difficult when first diagnosed, but fine tuning this thing is really going to take some diligence and some cooperation from my family. As far as being allergic to other things, its hard to say. I remember that before my initial diagnosis, I thought I was sensitive to a lot of things like tomatoes and greasy food. After I went gluten free, I had this iron gut and could eat anything as long as I basically stayed away from gluten. Now that I am having trouble again, I too am suspecting other sensitivities. But once again, maybe if I fully eliminate cc, other food problems will start to disappear again. I think an irritated system has a lot of trouble digesting things it wouldn't have trouble with normally. As humans, we eat such a variety of foods including things like tomatoes and nutmeg that because of their chemistry can be somewhat toxic. They just don't normally cross that threshold of causing major problems unless something else is bothering your system.

    • These are all low in fermentable carbs, but limit amounts to see what is tolerated (for us, 2 tortillas, two biscuits, one sandwich round) and don't load up on lots of baked goods in a day  I try to limit it to one baked good per day   Tortilla/ flat bread:  http://comfybelly.com/2013/04/tortillas-and-a-book-giveaway/#.WScABoFOmEc Sandwich Rounds (good with peanut butter): http://comfybelly.com/2013/08/sandwich-rounds-using-almond-flour/#.WScAm4FOmEc Biscuit (these are amazing. Make them sweet and serve with strawberries and coconut cream, savory and make sausage sandwiches, etc): http://healthyindulgences.net/2008/08/easy-low-carb-gluten-free-biscuits/
    • Thank you so much for sharing... we struggle with my daughters diet but it has only been 10 months so we are still learning the ropes. 
    • Also want to say that a lot of gluten free  recipes are not good for SIBO- too many starches. Also large quantities of almond flour or coconut flour have too much fermentable fibers so be careful with Paleo/SCD recipes too.  It's a bit of a balancing act in what you make and how much is eaten (that's why I like fast Tract- you can qualify things and it works).
    • My daughter is now 11 and we are finally on top of her SIBO (since she was 8).  Diet is super important. I know it's hard with kids, but a diet low in fermentable carbs is key. Especially when SIBO appears to be chronic.  I suggest looking into the Fast Tract Diet. There is a book and an app. Using glycemic index, fiber, and total carbs, the diet tells you the fermentation potential of different foods. There is a point system. The goal is to keep your fermentation potential points between 20-30 per day when you are experiencing SIBO symptoms, and then slowly increase to 40 points for the long term maintenance.  It is important to note that Fast Tract is not strictly gluten free. So you have to choose that yourself.  This system has worked very well for my daughter.  She also takes Atrantil daily and her GI at U of C suggested once a month going on a preventative herbal antibiotic.  Honestly, this is the best she has felt in years. Avoiding gluten is key...this is the other part of the equation. Incidentally, since gluten affects her nervous system, I think it has affected her motility, hence the SIBO.  So, diet is important and kids are difficult. Avoiding most grains is important since they are super high in fermentable carbs. BUT, there are some grains that are lower in fermentable carbs that help:  Jasmine Rice (cook in water like pasta and drain. Do not use left over because cooling causes resistant starches to form and that is aweful for SIBO).  Also mashed Red Potatoes (soak in salt water for 30 minutes to get most starch out, then rinse well, boil, drain, mash.  Again don't cool and reheat because of resistant starch). I have a terrific biscuit recipe and tortilla/flat bread recipe that I can post too. 
    • I hear ya. I spend all day in the bathroom *thinking* something's going to happen. lol
