Hi Everyone, Hope someone can help. I have been gluten free for a little over 2 years now and was doing great until a few months ago when I started with some reflux and some occasional slight stomach pain and bloating. These are typical celiac symptoms for me but they were not at all as severe as they were before diagnosis. My Gi thought I might be ingesting small amounts of gluten so I decided to make my kitchen 100 percent gluten free in case I was getting CC from 2 kids and hubby. I noticed some improvement after a week but now I think I am having issues with dairy. I am noticing after ingesting alot of cheese I have a terrible night of bloating gas and backache. I am 2 days dairy free now and I have improved but still feel slightly bloated and my back aches but my reflux is gone. Is it possible if I was getting CC for a few months that that is why I am having the dairy problem? How long should it take for me to feel completely back to normal after going dairy free? My insides feel kind of beat up. Is this a normal reaction to an intolerance to dairy? I never had a problem before. Thanks

My understanding is that it could be days to a few months to recover and tolerate milk again if you've been getting some gluten cc. Or could be developing issues with milk no matter what. :-(

If after a few months dairy is still an issue, I'd guess that you have a dairy problem, or you are still getting gluten cc somewhere. Unfortunately, if you are in the USA, there's no regulation specifically for gluten-free foods, so a number of companies and restaurants are jumping on the gluten free band wagon without being as careful of gluten cc as we celiacs need. Very frustrating!

Are most of your processed foods from certified or trusted gluten free companies? If you have a few products that just have 'no gluten ingredients,' they might be worth checking out as a contamination source, too. Also, labeling-wise, the label 'also processed in a facility that processes wheat' is a voluntary label, not a madatory one, so some beans, nuts, and dried fruit can be processed in a facility with wheat and not have that label. You have to call them up to check, annoyingly.

Just have to throw this out there for what it's worth. I have been using raw dairy now to great effect for 4 months. I was not able to get to the farm (out of state) recently so I decided to try some Kefir from the local health food store made with pasteurized milk. Got very ugly boils all over my hips and the tops of my thighs. Kefir was the only thing different and this is similar to what I would get when consuming regular pasteurized milk years ago. Stopped the kefir and the boils are healing up and going away.

Processed foods ? you gave me something to think about -I dont eat much of them but I will be even more careful about that. Hopefully this passes as I love my dairy but I will look into raw dairy too.

    • Jmg, I am glad you were able to come to the realisation that the culprit was in fact gluten. For me its not so simple. IBS runs in the family, as do several food intolerances. Its just in the last while that I can finally reach the conclusion that for me its gluten. The fact that it is a delayed effect-several hours after, made it harder.  Friday I had some KFC, felt great. Saturday evening felt sleepy, Sunday felt awful and my belly was huge.  I think I have gone from mildly sensitive to full blown celiac over the course of five years-if that possible. Thanks for all your help.
    • I thought I'd take a moment to provide an update, given how much lurking I've done on these forums the last year. It took a long time, but I've since had another gastroenterologist visit, many months of eating tons of bread, and an endoscopy where they took several biopsies. I have to say, the endoscopy was a super quick and efficient experience. During the procedure they let me know that it looked somewhat suspicious, causing them to take many biopsies, and then did comprehensive blood work. About a month later, I received a call telling me that the TTG came back positive a second time, and that the biopsies were a mix of negative (normal) results and some that were positive (showing blunting of the villi). As a result, I've been given a celiac diagnosis. It's been about a month now that I've been eating gluten free. Not sure if I'm really feeling all that different yet. It's a bit twisted to say, but in some way I was hoping for this diagnosis — thinking how nice it would be to have an explanation, a plan of action, and feeling better. It's certainly no small change to be totally gluten free, but I'm hopeful.
    • Is it possible to go from a mild form of gluten sensitivity, to a more severe form, and finally full blown celiac?  If so, that is one of the confusing aspects of this. I have been gluten free for several weeks, and almost feeling 'normal'. I had to go and ruin it with two pieces of KFC! That stuff is  my cocaine! Sure enough,  next two days I was sleepy, depressed, and my belly stuck way out.  Before I could get away with a little cheating. Not anymore I guess!
    • I've had peeling lips for over 3 years now. What helps my lips the most is taking HCL with every meal. Another thing...I've been grain free for the most part for helping to keep my weight down. But I had noticed a few times after eating bread products, that my lips would improve significantly. So I'm eating einkorn wheat and taking HCL and have had the most improvement since it started which was around menopause. The burning at the beginning was really bad until I got off of coffee and the burning stopped. I read that coffee was a hormone disruptor. I don't know what the conclusion will be but thought I would give you my 2 cents thus far.
    • My feet used to swell up too. Impossible to sleep. Started using compression stockings and that helped. Off that job for half year, meanwhile getting 100% gluten free. Back on my feet again all day and 2 weeks later notice my feet are not swelling or heating up like before. So yes, there is a connection.
