Some Symptoms Persist Intermittently...

Here's a question that's similar to a lot that I've seen here, but a little different. I was diagnosed about a month ago and have been attempting the gluten-free diet ever since. The gas and bloating that I experienced so often subsided pretty quickly, while the D continued. Then, slowly, the D got better and I was spending less time in the bathroom. But still, every five days or so, I have bad bouts, but with no other symptoms (maybe a little accompanying gas, but not like before going gluten-free). So does it sound like I'm being glutened on the weekends, or is this normal recovery (periods of feeling okay followed by short periods of not).

First of all alot of coeliacs discover that they have a lactose intolerance when they go gluten-free.Have you had food at the weekend with alot of milk?

Other food intolerances tend to become more apparent when you go gluten-free.

Are you eating out at the weekends?It's always easier to get 'glutened' when eating out.

Lastly,it can take quite a while for the bowel to heal and recover,longer than it took for the damage to get there.

My husband was diagnosed with celiac disease a year ago-and he's still recovering.Much better than he was-but still has attacks of the big 'D'.

Everyone's different,but if there's alot of damage it will take to time.

Good luck,hope you work it out.

P.S I nearly forgot,try and keep a food diary,so when you get ill you can examine what you've eaten ;)

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Have you been 100% gluten free including changing makeups, shampoos, soaps, lotions, etc?

Also, some people take longer to heal. I did not see a big difference until the 3rd month but was not back to normal until the 8th month. Some people see their symptoms go away quicker and some slower and then some do not even get symptoms.

I noticed you said attempting to be gluten free. That doesn't cut it though...it's an all or nothing thing. Even if you are getting a little bit it will still cause damage. Even accidental ingestions of gluten as frequent as once a month is just like not following the diet at all because the intestines do not heal.

You just really need to get rid of all the gluten that can get into you through any way, shape, or form.

    • I prefer edible candy. I have glaucoma and celiac so it helps me on a daily basis for all of my medical problems. I wish I could find a strain that has laxative effects so I didn't need linsess. Leafly.com has a lot of strain information and cannabist is a good resource, too. You can use CBD or THC and not get 'stoned'. I function fine on 20 mg of the candy. I refuse to drive if I smoke though. Good luck, hope it helps.
    • MC can be quite harsh as a laxative if your using it as one very effective....I mean 2 boxes of exlax did me nada back then. For a daily supplement try just taking Nature Vitality Calm twice daily start off with 1/4tsp work your way up to 1tsp doses if you can. If this is too harsh on you use a Magnesium Glycinate like Doctors best, less effective as a laxative but will still help provide you with a magnesium you body can utilize.
    • Thanks will try MC I tried LBS although it worked but it was brutal on my stomach 😬😬
    • OH odd info here but the best way I found found to use it is a slow low temp extraction into coconut oil, and using this oil in cooking. Use a mortar and pestal to grind your greens into a fine powder, and heat slowly in a pan with virgin coconut oil just very low temp for a while you will see the oils from the greens mix with the coconut oil. You can then use this oil blend in baking edibles, or in whatever you wish. I make it very weak myself with just small bag in a entire 16oz container of coconut oil. I do it for the medical benefits nothing else. I like using it in paleo breads, or drizzle a bit over salads,   CBD oil also has some benefits I have noticed in smaller amounts and CBD is legal in most states the gold one seems to be the best.
    • Yeah pretty standard, I also have neurological symptoms. Magnesium helps with the constipation and if you have any issues with nerve pain, numbness, prickly feelings, etc. ......I used to go 8-12 days of constipation.....was hell nothing made it move unless I drank 2 whole bottles of magnesium citrate maximum strength laxative.
