How long after giving up gluten should the diarrhea stop? I've been off it for 5 days, still wake up in the morning with soft stool or diarrhea, although bloating is gone and stools have changed from green to brown (I'm sorry, I know that's gross). Is this normal? Should it have stopped by now?

Are you eating dairy? If you are, I would stop that for a while and see if it helps.

I did stop dairy too, and soy, a few days after I stopped gluten. I'm also taking some probiotics to try and help heal my gut. I don't have stomach pain any more, just the soft, loose stools. I get so defeated every morning when I wake up and still have them!

I have been off for five days as well, and I have the same problem. I don't go as often, but when I go it is still soft, or diarrhea. My stomach pain is gone and I feel better. I wonder if I am still getting gluten with out knowing it! Is microwave popcorn a problem?

I think this is a very individual thing - and also once you know you have either a gluten sensitivity or celiac - you may find that you have developed other sensitivities as well. I know that after my first flare up, I no longer could eat corn chips, potatoes, soy, grains of any kind, nightshade vegetables - potatoes, tomatoes, green peppers, dairy, high fructose, carrots and other green vegetables. This was in September. Now in January, I still do have many of the sensitivities that developed after the initial flareup - BUT I can now eat my rice chex cereal (gluten free), and have added back some of the green vegetables I could not tolerate. It just takes time and patience. For me, the flare up happened after many years of abusing my body with gluten, cafeine and Splenda. I no longer ingest cafeine, Splenda or gluten. I really now am beginning to feel good - but it did take time. I no longer have the diarrhea and/or soft stools (after having it for a good 3+ months)and sometimes it even alternates now with constipation - which at least gives my intestinal track a rest!

I had the same problem, but mine lasted weeks. I found that eating white rice helped and watching my ratio of green veggies to meat/starch. Even then it just took a while. I've been on the diet just over 3 months now and have only been what I'd call "normal" for the last 3 weeks. It's also coincided with feeling a great deal better & having some of my food sensitivities diminish. I can eat small amounts of cheese now and I was having big problems with dairy at first. I ate chocolate (with soy lecithin and dairy) and was fine. The latest is that I can eat Mission corn chips (they have dedicated lines in mfr'g) and I'm fine. I had to give up dairy, corn & soy. Now soybean oil is still a No-No but I think I've always been somewhat allergic to it even when I was healthier.

Once you root out your sensitivites, I think it's just a matter of time for the intestines to start healing. I find it interesting that my bowel disturbances clearing coincided with being able to reintroduce the items successfully. It speaks to the advice you get so often to eat a whole foods diet for a while & let your intestines heal.

Hang in there,

Everybody is different. I felt a little better after a few days but it took me about ten days on my elimination diet for the D to stop. I was eating nothing but lamb, rice, and lettuce. (I was looking for food allergies. Hah!)

Thanks for the replies!! I guess I'm not sure what I should eat anymore. Here's what I am eating and thinking is safe: fruit, veggies, rice, potatoes, corn tortillas, nuts, eggs, meat, fish, beans. I gave up dair and soy too yesterday- hopefully these are temporary though. Any input? What is a good safe diet to start out with and heal on?

Sounds good to me. Do you have Mission brand tortillas available? They are made on a dedicated line, so there is less chance of CC with flour tortillas.
