What Do You Eat When You Have An Upset Stomach

8 posts in this topic

I am recently new to gluten free eating and I need help. Today I have a very upset stomach, probably related to ulcerative colitis. Normally I would eat some toast or some saltine crackers to calm my tummy. Now that I am gluten free I have no idea what to eat. Any thoughts or suggestions? I have tried gluten free bread recently, and I am not really a fan of the taste or texture. Thanks!

If saltines used to work then I would suggest gluten free pretzels - glutino makes some good ones as goes ener-g. because of the crunchy texture of pretzels I can't really tell a difference from normal. I am a colitis sufferer as well. Have you tried herbal teas? I found those to work well to settle my tummy too.

Sipping water slowly, drinking herbal teas (peppermint tea, or bits of fresh ginger in hot water with lemon) and eating some gluten free rice cakes or gluten free crackers helps!

I always wake feeling nauseas, drinking probiotic yoghurt always helps me as does fresh fruits. Generally anything simple, easy to digest and healthy!

Good luck and feel better soon! K x

I'm wierd, I eat spicy food when I don't feel good. I make chicken noodle soup full of pepper or curry beef stew. But don't count on this working for you, if you try it, take it slow. I'm pretty sure I'm a freak of nature.

Sorry that happened!

I like white rice with just a little salt and butter or olive oil.

Mashed potatoes or polenta/grits. You could also eat a baked potato or spagetti squash.

I also agree with the gluten-free pretzels. I can't tell them from regular pretzels and would eat them everyday if they were good for me.

I also drink gallons of mint tea. Pepto Bismal also works for me in the early stages if I'm queasy with an upset stomach.

When I start to feel better, I eat gluten-free mac-n-cheese, but that's not good if you're still heeling and might have trouble with dairy and/or fat.

Thank you so much for all the helpful suggestions. I ended up having a baked potato because I just happened to have some of those at home. I will have to check my local stores to see if I can find a few of the other things mentioned as well. Thanks again, appreciate all the help and kind words!

This may be a silly question....but, have you tried the gluten free bread toasted? And actually, the first question should be "are you eating Udi's bread?" If you're eating anything else stop immediately and go buy Udi's. lol.. :P But if it is Udi's and you haven't tried it toasted, see if that works. As good as it is I can't eat it just plain, I have to toast it.

Otherwise, all good suggestions by the other people who have replied. I can't remember if anyone suggested sweet potatoes. If not, try some sweet potatoes. I'm sure I lived on sweet potatoes, regular potatoes, rice, tea, and plain chicken breast for several weeks while my body was healing.

    • No anti-sm(lupus)? Yes, anti dsDNA is for SLE(lupus). No ENA panel,anti-RNP, anti-SS-A, anti-SS-B, anti histone, scl-70, etc? I'd ask for a referral, if you feel that there is something going on. I think that would be a logical step because of the positive ANA and lack of investigation. 1:640 is definitely positive. 
    • My MCH is always high too. Have some other oddities but doc always say labs are great as well. I dont think they ever really bother with the MCH. I'm also in testing and showed negative on the same ones you did. My IGA is fine though. As far as the other tests, maybe your girls GI can order or you could try your primary. 
    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
