1 Week Gluten-Free And I Have The Worst Gas Please Help!
0

12 posts in this topic

I'm 1 week into a gluten-free diet and for the past 3 days I have been experiencing the worst most constant and smelly gas. The bloating is killing me and the cramps hurt. I'm embarrased to go anywhere for it smells so bad, and it's about every 10 to 30 minutes.

Is this just my body adjusting to no gluten?

Please for me and the sake of my family :( please help

Are you eating anything new to replace gluten-containing foods? Do you take probiotics or digestive enzymes?

I'm a month gluten-free and don't think I can tolerate broccoli right now (same reaction you describe). Too many beans are bad too. It might be something you are eating.

Oh yeah, good times. Go through everything you are eating -- try to make sure as much as possible that you aren't getting cross-contaminated or anything with gluten. For me, I cannot eat any vegetables for a day or two, but stick with bland carbs. Oh, gosh, I remember those days. I went through it when I first went off gluten -- well, I had it bad BEFORE going off gluten, but then after I did, it was brutal for a few months. I never knew when something was going to set my system off. And then finally, it eased up, and now it's gone. :) So it does get better. But it is tough to go through. In the beginning, it's hard to know what you are reacting to as your gut heals. It also could be something that you are eating that you don't know has gluten. Avoid processed foods if possible.

Okay so far I have been eating alot of baby carrots, Envirokids cereal bars, gluten-free Bread and Bagels, gluten-free Cereal, gluten-free cookies, gluten-free pasta with gluten-free sauce, apples, nut thins, tortilla chips with cheese, Eda mame, soy chocolate pudding, chicken and rice, and gluten-free pizza.

It has been so annoying that today i had an apple and will probably have chicken and rice for lunch and steak with mashed potatoes for dinner. I am hopefull that this will eventually pass (literally) and I can start adding one or two other foods a day and see what happens. I'm going to try to get the almond milk for cereal, It's possible that i could be lactose intolerant so maybe i should buy lactose pills, and I will try beano, or gas x. Thank you for all of the responses and please keep them coming! By the way this forum has saved me from much grief, and is keeping me sane somewhat ;) Thank you all soooo much.

Have you ever noticed issues with dairy? This will cause huge bloating and gas, also.

Woot -- that is a lot of packaged food, which is tough to avoid in the beginning. If you can get away from it, and dairy, it may help. Good luck -- it is tough and frustrating when you are fist starting out, but it does get better. :)

Wow, that is way too much gluten free packaged food for your system to handle at the begining. You need to be on a more whole foods diet right now. Gradually ease into it. You are shocking your system big time. Also, by the way, Beano has wheat. And you may want to get rid of the dairy also.

Okay, I went shopping today (after more research) and bought more veggies, fruits, and rice. I also started Gas x and Lactaid. So today's diet was really good and I have less gas and bloating then yesterday. Hoping to keep eating more pure raw foods and will add more food next week to see if i can't find out the problem. Thank you for all of the help.

I found probiotics to be very helpful for me in eliminating gas issues. I also avoid dairy, but I do use butter. I still have issues with certain vegetables so I avoid them now. And it's news to me that Beano isn't gluten free. I never thought to check that!

    • The waiting is very difficult. in the meantime, it's time to start reading the newbie thread and see what you can start doing, as there is nothing wrong with trying a gluten-free diet even if you are not diagnosed with celiac. You could have non celiac gluten intolerance. No way to know if eliminating gluten will help until you try. Don't expect immediate results. Healing takes time. But you might experience relief from the bloating within a few days, personally I had horrible abdominal pain which disappeared within a week. Everyone's bodies are different!
    • You are lucky so many of your favorite foods are going to be gluten free already. Except of course for your delicious breads.  You will have to watch eating out. Meaning, with many breads cooked in the tandoori oven, you can't have anything also cooked in the same oven. It will be cross contaminated. So it will be best for you to cook most, if not all, your foods at home. feel free to post any of your favorite recipes for us here. Indian food is my personal favorite type of food in the world!
    • There is a lot of Celiac research done by Researchers from India.  The latest national Celiac symposium was in India.  Maybe if you look at the site , you can find which hospitals have Celiac programs.  Check their websites or call for info? http://www.icds2017india.com/
    • EMA is a test that comes back as positive or negative for celiac. Immunoglobulin IGA is used to see if your IGA levels are high enough for TTG IGA to be valid. Too low Immunoglobulin IGA means a negative TTG IGA has no meaning and TTG IGG neads to be used.  
    • Thanks Victoria123r for your suggestion. I have performed the blood test confirming of Celiac and even the Biopsy report suggested Villous Atropy due to gluten. From pat 2 days I have left eating the food with gluten and the burping issue is now fine. Also I had a problem of liquid stools from past week for which I showed to gastro is also over. It was not like diarrhea but once a day.  I am going to met my GI on wednesday and wi;; sede what he suggest.   It seems there is lots of thing which i need to learn about celiac and need to change my lifestyle and eating habits. Here in India not many people are aware of this disease(It was new for me as always) and I am having bit difficulty to explain to people. Also there are no scope for gluten free food in Grocery stores so I have to take care of my own foods. Is there anyone who lives in India, Mumbai or Bangalore. If yes, please suggest me few gluten free food shop.
