Digestive Problem?
0

3 posts in this topic

So I'm worried that I am/have developed another digestive problem. Six months ago I got glutened (CC) and then had three months of D, nausea, and vomiting. It slowly disappeared over time. Now last week I started getting D again and nausea. I took Imodium because I had to go to class. That stopped me up for two days and then I had normal BMs for three days. Now the D is back. I don't think this is a glutening as I don't have any of the other symptoms that I get with glutening (not even cramping). I have been gluten free for two years. Could I be developing soy intolerance or lactose intolerance after this amount of time? Any advice/ insight is very much appreciated. Everything has been going well so far.

If you are abstaining from gluten, you may now notice sensitivities (intolerances) to other foods. You may have had those reactions all along, but your gluten intolerance reaction was more noticeable. You could actually have a casein (dairy protein) allergy, rather than mere lactose (milk sugar) reactions. After I abstained from gluten, I still had reaction symptoms. So I got allergy (ELISA blood) tests, which showed I had 5 more allergies (besides dairy and gluten, which Enterolab diagnosed).

Even after eliminating my allergens, I still had symptoms. So my doc gave me a stool test for bacteria, parasites and candida. Over a 4 year period I treated 8 different gut bugs. Only after I identified and abstained from all my allergies and identified and treated all my gut bugs did my symptoms finally disappear. I read so many posts on this board from people who think they are being 'glutened' even when they conscientiously abstain from gluten. Unfortunately they don't consider (or get tested for) other allergies or gut bugs. If you know you're not consuming gluten, consider getting reliable allergy tests and/or stool tests for gut bugs from a reputable naturopath

Another thing to consider is that your "glutened" symptoms may have changed. Mine sure did. For about the first year after I went gluten free if I accidently got glutened I would start off with reflux then be constipated for about 4-5 days. After that I spent the next 8 months of 2010 chasing down other reasons for new symptoms: belching, reflux, pinching sensation in my RUQ, relentless D and steatorrhea. What I discovered during that time was that my gallbladder is slightly underfunctioning and I developed a peptic ulcer. Watched my fat intake and any other food that might aggrivate the ulcer and took zantac for two months and improved healing the ulcer. The D and steatorrhea persisted and doc wanted to put me on steriods and I refused. I did a further elimination of even gluten free items and found out that I was reacting to the gluten free oat contamination in products. With the aid of taking creon for a few months I finally healed. Now if I eat anything gluten free that has oat contamination or I get glutened I get the D and steatorrhea. I have to start taking the creon again to help me through for about 1-2 weeks until I'm back to normal. Of course all of that didn't help the gallbladder and now I think I am having issues from that again as I know I wasn't glutened. My symptoms from that I believe are severe reflux/burping and the pinching sensation in my RUQ and sometimes pain.

    • I am sorry that you are sick!  Ennis has offered some great advice.  With small children, they can be glutening you.  I recall member Jebby getting glutened by her kids.  She worked full time as a neonatologist (premie doctor) and her kids would give her slobbery, adorable kisses, etc.  Jebby had the household go gluten free.  That might be something to consider.  
    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.  
    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
