Diarrhea And Low Carb Diets...

6 posts in this topic

I recently limited all my carbs and have eliminated all grains from my diet. Most sugars, as well. I eat mainly meat, tofu, and vegetables, with an apple or berries thrown in daily. I take supplements in the form of an organic multi-vitamin, acidophilis, and fish oil. I've limited my dairy for the last two years, but I do have a little more than I did previously, which is where my suspicion lies, but I'm wondering if anyone else has any other suggestions? Is there something I might be missing? A vegetable I should be eating? I eat mainly broccoli, green beans, salad with spinach, romaine, and arugala, celery. I also have a serving of nuts a day. I feel great otherwise, and this is the first time I've not had sugar spikes all day long. So I'm happy on it, just concerned with the bowel issues. Prior to this, unless I'd been glutened, I had no bowel issues.

What about the soy? Some people have trouble with that.

Tofu has never bothered me in the past. So that's not to say that couldn't be new, but I think given the extreme changes in diet with getting rid of all simple carbs and limiting complex -- within reason -- is the blame. I'm just not sure how to counteract it.

Hi ciavyn, I eat a lot like you do now (minus the soy and legumes) but even though I tend towards diarrhea normally, this way of eating does the opposite for me. I also wondered about the soy, but since you were good with it before I don't know how changing everything "around" it would make a difference. It may be something to think about if all else fails, just omit it for a trial.

Also, are the supplements all things that you've been taking all along? I have a very hard time with them and consequently don't take any anymore.

Finally, are you taking in a lot more fiber than before? That could also do it, but your system should adapt if that's the case.

You could try adding some sweet potatoes or yams into your diet. Lots of vit A and they have both insoluable and soluable fiber so they can help with both D and C. I also think it might be a good idea to eliminate soy for a bit and see if that helps.

It sounds like your gut is out of whack. Our family has had great results from the GAPS Diet. It's all about healing the gut. There is a long list of foods to avoid and SOY is definitely one of them. The idea behind this diet is to restore the balance of the flora in your gut, and to seal up a leaky gut. People with leaky guts (that have been damaged, especially by grains) often develop intolerances to foods that didn't used to be a problem because the proteins of those foods get through the gut's lining and cause reactions. By healing the gut, many foods can become safe to reintroduce.

    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there.
