Tired Of Eating

I can taste, but I don't taste like normal people. I can eat strange combinations of food and I taste each food separately rather than a medley. so for example I can eat guacamole on ginger snaps, or cherries dipped in hot sauce, or mackerel and avocado mashed into a paste with rice, and not think any of it is gross. My taste is also extremely insensitive it seems, while my smell is pretty decent i think. I wonder if I burnt my tongue too many times on super hot liquids. anyway my sense of smell is fine and far surpasses my sense of taste. this is pre-celiac.

It is possible that your taste will recover as you heal on the diet. Are there any particular types of tastes that you can taste strongly and still enjoy? Sweet, salty, savory?

I can taste everything, I just don't enjoy the eating part. I enjoy sweet too much as in I eat too much sugar, but the enjoyment only lasts for the first few bites and then I just feel gross again.

I do like eating well-flavoured red meat though. And bacon fat. And bone marrow. But I still malabsorb fat if I eat too much at once :(

and @ lindamb296 -- of course you can call me Jam. That's actually my name IRL :lol:

Well, maybe a good solution would be to just go with what makes you happy. If well-flavored red meat is appealing, a steak, burger patty, or pot roast, with a small amount of potatos or bland greens would be good. Stick a burger patty on top of a salad, help get the greens in. That's actually one of my favorite meals. Fry potatos in bacon fat so they taste good, and you get some calories and resistant starch.

It sounds like your body really wants fat, probably because you're having trouble absorbing it. A number of vitamins are fat-soluble, so your body will crave fat so that it can get those vitamins. A certain amount of dietary fat is also necessary for proper brain and bowel function. Bone broths are a good way to get the fats and nutrients you need in their most digestible form. I can give you some links to recipes for making the most nutritious broths.

When you say you feel gross after the first few bites, do you mean nausea? Trouble swallowing? Or something else?

naw it's just a mental thing.

too much fat does make me feel nauseated. I made a bone broth without draining the fat and I almost got sick off it. now I drain the fat but keep the marrow.

my eating is really disordered. half the time I'm hungry but even a nice fatty bacon slice doesn't sound good. nothing sounds good. it's a mental block I guess.

also I have reflux on and off. right now it's really bad so I hate everything. it will come and go even when my diet is constant, so I wonder if it isn't triggered by microscopic effing CC.

    • I have 2 copies of DQ9. One from each parent.
    • Obviously from the outside it's difficult to comment, but if I were you I'd leave allergies for now and pursue definitive celiac testing via your doctor and preferably a gastroenterologist. They're the first port of call for digestion issues. If you do wind up being celiac it's possible that other allergies or intolerances would resolve or improve in any case once you've been on the diet for awhile. That's been my experience.   Ps note that wheat allergy is completely different and unrelated to celiac or non celiac gluten sensitivity. 
    • Thank you ps, it may be better if the thread title was changed as we now have two 'overwhelmed' topics. If it were 'Bile ducts and celiac?' then it may attract more users with direct experience?
    • Hello and welcome Maybe? From reading others accounts there's a big variation in how quickly gluten antibodies respond to the gluten diet. I did similar to you and my doctor said that 1 week back on should be enough to show up in a test, but he didn't know what he was talking about sadly... The 2 week figure refers to the endoscopy, for blood testing 8-12 weeks on gluten is more normal.  Basically if it comes back positive fine you have your answer. If its negative it may be a false negative due to your going gluten free beforehand. If you want to pursue a diagnosis then yes. Don't go off gluten again until you confirm that all testing is complete.  Keep a journal noting any symptoms, that may be useful to you later. More info here: There's some good info in the site faq: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I know how you feel! Partway through my gluten challenge I knew that too results notwithstanding. Fwiw I think you've found your answer. Good luck!
    • Learn more about testing for celiac disease here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You do have to be on a gluten diet for ANY of the celiac tests (blood and biopsy) to work.  While the endoscopy (with biopsies) can reveal villi damage, many other things besides celiac disease can cause villi damage too: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So, both the blood test and endoscopy are usually ordered.  There are some exceptions, but those are not common.
