Anyone Else Have This Happen?

Recommended Posts

before i was diagnosed, i used to have diarrhea sometimes. now that i have been diagnosed, i feel like i get it MORE, and not just in reaction to gluten. i get it randomly, and like RIGHT after eating, and i can see pieces of whatever i've just eaten in it.

i know this is so so so gross, but this is the only place i can ask about it.

is this because my system has been "cleaned out" so much? or is it that my celiac disease was worsening as time went on and my body would react like this whether i had stopped eating gluten or not? and if this is happening whether i eat gluten or not, and literally RIGHT after eating, what else could be going on??

Don't worry, I can SO RELATE TO YOU!!!

I avoid as much as possible salads, fruits with skin, tomatoes, corn, mushrooms. All go through my system basically undigested.

The next time you see your doctor, ask him maybe to investigate the possibility of you having collagenous colitis. After a decade of permanent watery diarrhea, the top celiac guy in Canada finally figured out (by colonoscopy) that I also had collagenous colitis. Google it up, it might sound very familiar to you......

Good Luck!

Add me to this list.... I love salads... bummer. I have been able to achieve some control over the D by using Metamucil or Citracil 2-3 times a day.

i eat salads all the time, so i don't think it's due to them... last night (when i had another "episode") i also had a LOT of fat free whipped cream, which is basically skim milk and sugar. could a lactose issue cause this violent reaction?

I don't get extreme D all the time, but my food always comes out with undigested parts. Like "oh, there's what I ate for lunch." !

Does anyone still have floaters after being gluten-free for awhile?? I always thought this was normal..... and after 11 weeks gluten-free they still don't sink! :blink:

Sue, so glad you asked that! I have been wondering the same thing. Also been gluten-free 11 weeks. Still chronically constipated and when I do go (with help) - still floaters! Does this ever change?

Lactose intolerance can definitely be your problem. What happened in my diagnosis was they thought I was lactose intolerant in the beginning cause I had the D all the time - several times a day. So I gave up dairy. It quieted down some but never truly went away. I finally gave up wheat/gluten and my system has quieted down a lot, still have a few problems, but I think everyone gets the D once in awhile. Now that I have given up wheat for good, my lactose intolerance problem may heal, because my intestines are healing and I should be able to digest dairy again at some point. I accidently ate butter a month or two ago, I had some grumblings and gas, but I never had to run to the bathroom like I did in the past.

I would give up all dairy for two weeks and see what happens, also look for dairy ingredients in the foods that you eat, cause it is in a lot of things. I can eat Yoplait and Dannon yogurt with no problem at all.

If I have a dietary acceident I'm usually C for several days, but then all of a sudden I'll have D.....It's a welcomed change by that point and usually I sign that I'm getting over it...

    • Anybody have raised liver enzymes just before diagnosis. All my liver tests where fine except my ast level was very slightly raised. GP said it was of no concequence and is quite typical with celiacs before going gluten free. I have had celiacs now confirmed by blood test and biopsies. Just wondering if this is quite a normal thing.
    • My only symptom was slight nausea that lasted all day. I had a lot of mashed potato soup as it was easy on my insides (the mashed potatoes dissolve in the chicken broth). And I had smaller meals 6x per day. Easier on my insides to avoid very solid food. The nausea lessened and went mostly away in the first six months.
    • I still vote on removing dairy completely for 60 days. This could help in many ways Probiotics are helpful normally later on, but initially if she has damaged or leaky gut it could make the issues much worse. It works for some makes stuff worse for others. I keep going back to the dairy as it is common to cause a feeling of bloat, fullness, inflammation, leaky gut issues, etc. Try making or using nut based milks, heck one of my favorites and simplest ways is to blend a few tbsp of nut butter into water to make a nu milk drink. Your doing smoothies? Try adding 1/4-1/2 cup of almond butter to a water base blend  it first to get your starter base milk.  Adds a ton of good easy to digest calories if you use a nut butter, I love doing this with walnut butter, try it with her favorite nut butters.  Kite Hill makes some good heavy almond based cheeses you can find in most stores. I have some coconut milk blended soup recipes if you wish make something easy to drink and get in some good fats. Have a butternut curry, pumpkin curry, and one tI even made that taste like pumpkin pie.

      I posted a recipe the other day for a avocado icing, >.> You could make something up like this and she can just eat it by the spoon.
    • Hi, sorry to suggest removing yet another thing from the poor girl, but have you tried going completely milk free. So not just limiting lactose, but trialling a period with absolutely no dairy whatsoever?  Reason being, lactose intolerance is only one of the two possible milk issues, the other is casein intolerance. I spent a long time allowing myself small amounts if milk on basis that my stomach was ok, only to realise my issue was the casein not the lactose. That means complete avoidance.  May not be that, but a trial of completely avoiding it (substituting soya or almond based alternatives) would at least exclude it?  Best of luck to you both from all the way across the Atlantic matt    
    • Awol touched on what I thought it could be, night numbness and cramps is often a magnesium issue, Also with gluten ataxia nephropathy is common causing numbness, tingling, or control loss. As you mention a constant I am thinking perhaps more of a deficiency, Raven goes on another topic, I had a issue in my shoulder messing up and pain and numbness in my back/shoulder with numbness in my arm a while back from some muscle and nerve issues and had to have it worked on by a massage therapist, seems my muscles had healed wrong after working out and caused some issues, she was getting rolling, bands and large knots out of the area around my shoulder blade and neck for over 30mins.
