I have been doing my best to conciously avoid gluten since Jan 01, and its starting to pay off. This past Saturday night, I was socialising, and had quite few beers before I realised they were a no no. They loosened me up enough to have some gluten snacks.

I am back on the wagon now, but was this a major setback in terms of hurting my system, or not so bad. Today,(Tuesday) I feel OK and the belly has gone back to softening up and not being as distended. Thanks

I did that in November. I was on vacation and feeling great for the first time in forever (I had been under a TON of stress at work, and being in an awesome hotel on the beach just melted it all away). We were there for a wedding and were feeling pretty good when we got back to the hotel - someone ordered a pizza and I just couldn't help myself. The next day, I decided "well since I already did that, might as well have a breakfast sandwich too"!! It was fantastic, but I paid for it. I don't have a lot of GI symptoms...but the week after I got back from vacation, I was exhausted, anxious, depressed, muscles hurt, etc. Took almost 3 weeks to feel better and I still don't feel as good as I did before I did that to myself. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm sure we've all been there once or twice. But we all have to think about the bigger picture too...even if we don't FEEL bad after eating gluten, doesn't mean it's not doing it's damage. One day at a time right?? :)

If you're gluten intolerant I doubt you did any harm, other than the short-term effects. If you're celiac every time you consume gluten you give your body the opportunity to develop different auto-antibodies. We tend towards autoimmunity and gluten really seems to boost the process. :(

Just keep on trying. The diet really does take some getting used to.

I just did that today lol. I have been doing so well lately on my diet, Been gluten free for 3 years but have had some setbacks every now and then. Well I was out running errands and one of the grocery stores was selling Krispy Kreme Doughnuts. They looked so delicious, soft, chocoately. I wanted one so bad. I picked up the box ad put it down multiple times before finally walking away.....Only to walk back by the stand 10 minutes later on my way to check out and picked up the box :/ and ate one in the car on my way home. Now an hour later my tummy is distended, cramping, nausea, belly ache, GI issues, etc. Was it worth it?? NOPE!!! and I am so mad that I did that when I was doing so well, but it happens and I will pay for it for awhile but do my best not to fall back into temptation of yummy doughnuts lol

Kinnikinnick makes chocolate-covered gluten-free donuts. :) There is very little I would want to eat that I can't find gluten-free. It makes it much easier.

Not a fan of their doughnuts. Too cake-like and I have never been a fan of cake-like doughnuts... No more Krispy Kreme for me though, threw the box away when I got home lol

Keep trying good gluten-free brands until you're less tired and can bake your own. You'll just stay hypo and tired if you cave in and eat gluten - but you know that. :P I prefer Rudi's or Schar to Udi's.

I personally love UDIS bread, I live on their products. To me it tastes like the real thing. My cousin loves Rudi's Bread though and it is quite tasty as well. Hope you find a bread you love. I used to love hot warm loaves of bread and do still miss them, but keep trying and you will find a replacement you love.

When you get to a point where you can handle making something, the King Arthur gluten-free mixes are good. You can make a loaf, then slice and freeze so you can have it on hand. It's not the same as gluten bread, but it's pretty good in my opinion. I also like Namaste bread mix. They're easier than making your own, and they come out reliably well.

    • So where oh where to begin. I read all and everyone's post because as a community I think it's extra special when people have others they can vent to that understand how each other are feeling. Ok enough with the gushy stuff. Down to business. I have been gluten free for almost 9 months October 4 (im counting)  the relief I have felt is diarhea is gone. Another good positive symptom and sign is I'm 5'7 so at diagnosis I withered away to about 108 (very sickly all muscle was gone) I now I got weighed in at 122 today! And I'm literally eating whole foods some extra food maybe some chips here and there but I've always been a chip person. I haven't weighed 122 since I was 18 (Im 29) so that part had me excited. Except for the last few weeks my fatigue has come back with a vengeance. I don't know where it's coming from, i got my thyroid (just tsh until I see endo at end of month when she will check all thyroid hormones) and it was at 3.45 I'm not on thyroid hormone so I wonder if this is causing my fatigue and fast weight gain since I started gaining weight pretty fast (even though I needed it, it happened all at once over a month) I'm also having severe hair loss. I had my iron checked and it's all went up except my ferritin which was at 15 last week's blood test. My symptoms consist mainly of hair loss, shortness of breath, dizziness especially from sitting to standing, really bad raynauds attacks everyday all day (on feet) neck pain (severe) now new symptom started about 4 months ago the back of my shoulder bone to the elbow and clavicle bone are all hurting so so bad. I don't expect anyone to know what's wrong with me I just felt like venting. Also I was prescribed neomycin and xifaxin because a hydrogen breath test showed high methane in my test but normal level hydrogen so the actual SIBO test was negative but she was confused about the high methane and said I may benefit from the antibiotics. I still am waiting to get them from my insurance. I'm a seronegative celiac with positive biopsy. We've already gone through and rules out other scenarios for the villous blunting and IEL's. Any info would help me. I feel so weak some days. And all doctors want to say it's anxiety. I've heard that for far too long I actually went to a hematologist today because I've been freaked out the last year my wbc have been at 3.3 which my lab range is 4.5 and above to whatever the higher limit is. He told me to do a bone marrow biopsy because of the pain in my shoulder and arm and my "low wbc "which he wasn't even concerned about. Is this necessary right now or am I just spooking myself. Is it common to have low wbc. Could it be the extra methane in my breath or whatever. Any help would be great. Listen I have friends and family but they won't listen to all this. They think most of this is in my head. 
    • I've been having diarrhea for the last year which I attributed to stress. In the last three months I've been having INTENSE abdominal pain(all over not from gas bc I took anti gas medicine) gas, and bloating. The doctor ordered an upper and lower endoscopy. He found a precancerous polyp (not the cause of symptoms) removed it, performed biopsy on the irritated tissue he saw in my small intestine. Biopsy results came back as increased IELS. he said the results are a sign of celiacs and said he was ordering a blood test to "confirm the diagnosis" he ordered a celiac panel, t4 free, TSH, and lipase test. These other tests make me think he isn't really sure what it is. Could it really be celiacs with just the elevated IELS? (As a Longtime NSAID user I read online could have caused damage to small intestine although hadn't taken any for two months prior to endoscopy). I haven't heard anyone else's story like this, having endoscopy prior to blood work and starting to think I might not have celiacs. Just him saying "to confirm the diagnosis" made me think that's what HE thinks it is. Thoughts ? Appreciate any input! 
    • I know this is an old post but I was happy to see it here!!  There have been numerous times lately that I swell up (like 3 to 4 lbs heavier) the morning after excess salt (chips, salted nuts, pickles, etc...). This happens even when I know I haven't been exposed to gluten plus I don't have the emotional side and GI issues that come with gluten.  I deflate typically within a day or two and have just recently figured out that seems sodium related.  I am now wondering if the sensitivity to salt is related to a decrease in magnesium.  I quit taking my calcium/magnesium supplement not too long ago (not for any reason... just ran out/got lazy)
    • Hey guys - For the last few years I've dealt with energy issues, emotional lethargy, grogginess, and recently OCD, so I decided to go gluten-free 4 weeks ago. After a week of dizzy spells, irritability and insane cravings it felt like a veil had been lifted from me - I felt lighter on my feet, endlessly energetic, and most of all, so very happy.  Two days ago, I ate a LOT of gluten - a whole plate of breaded chicken thinkig it was battered in corn starch (newb issues, I guess) and within 30 minutes it felt like I had been hit by a truck: extreme fatigue, sudden depression, sense of hopelessness. The next morning was worse, and today I have felt no better and am experiencing swollen eyes and sinusitis. Before going gluten-free I had never had a reaction like this. Can anybody relate?         
    • Ok so is this really true?!?! Conventional? Remember, the fecal transplant was first described in the 1950s, but took decades to catch on as a conventional treatment for gut disorders, such as c-dif bacteria, partly because it was seen as crude and somehow objectionable. But it proved to work. Really well. So much so that it's now a fairly conventional treatment.
