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.

    • I do not have DH, but if I have ever had it I would not remember. From what i've read I'm in the beginning demographic of when DH would appear (Which is apparently 20-40; I'm 20) but from what I can tell I don't have anything other than hyperpigmentation on my legs and a few bumps and similar things on my legs. Never had DH. My aunt has a weird rash that doesn't go away and her doctor doesn't know what it is but I wouldn't know unless I saw it again. I have 2 family members with conditions related to celiac. My mother, who is schizophrenic, and my aunt who developed MS in her 50's and has had it for 20 years, which I hear is very rare. My mother's side of the family also has a host of issues including thyroid related and etc, but the general consensus was that these things were part of aging and nothing else. I myself have had things like post-nasal drip and other minor symptoms for years because I just assumed they were normal. There have also been a couple of instances where I ate something like a PB&J in my childhood and threw it back up for no reason. I'm known to be a picky eater, and I've always avoided certain foods and condiments that make me gag like ketchup. I'm probably just going on, but I never really felt too normal, but I just kinda figured everyone was like that.
    • If the citrate version bothers you in small amounts as low as 1/2tsp then you need to change to Magnesium Glycinate like Doctors best. Some people do not react well to the citrate. NOTE Citrate version of magnesium is used as a laxative in higher doses and sold in stores that way mixed up in bottles.    Some of us just react that way to it, I use both myself on rotation, and actually use the citrate version sometimes to help move along gut when it needs that extra boost. As raven suggested eating more in foods is also a options. But I Found NO amount of food consumption could boost my levels where I needed them not even with stuff like pea protein and pumpkin seed protein. Also on the glycinate version try halving the dose starting off, perhaps drinking it with less juice or liquid. Magnesium makes your body retain water naturally so can give a bit of a heart burn sensation. This is normal, mine normally passes within a hour to two, I also drink it warm to help it start going through my gut faster and promote it hurry on along.    You might want to play with when and how to take it, perhaps it might work better with a food? >.> I have used glycinate as a food additive in homemade dips, and ice cream as it has a doughish flavor when mixed into something sweet.
    • Can you give her some magnesium rich foods instead of the supplement?  Foods are always the best way to get nutrients. Here is a link to a list http://www.healthbeckon.com/magnesium-rich-foods/
    • Thanks for pointing the date out .
    • Thyroid disorders are common with those who have celiac disease.  Being hypothyroid can cause fatigue.  Anemia is another cause for fatigue and is very common for this with celiac disease.  Have those two issues been ruled out?
