...Sometimes I get bloating without being Glutened, any quick fix to it .

...

I don't have a quick fix, but it's maybe a fix. Keeping a food/symptom journal might show that the bloating corresponds to certain food(s). It wouldn't necessarily mean those foods are off-limits forever.

Also, are you taking probiotics? If not, they could help.

Hi Gemme,

You can try peppermint tea for bloating. It helps get the gas out/belching. It is not a cure for the cause though. A food journal like Tom said can help with that. Probiotics and low sugar/low carbs can help also. Digestive enzymes may help. The big thing though is to eliminate the foods that are causing the reaction for a while. Have you eliminated dairy? That causes many people problems.

Hi Gemme,

Is your uric acid going up or is the elevated number from a umma (urine methymalonic acid) test? If it's uric acid I have no answer for you. Sorry. If it's the umma that means you have an active b12 and/or folic acid deficiency, even with supplements/injections.

Make sure your b12 supplements are METHYLcobalamin (preferably sublingual - under the tongue) not CYANOcobalamin. The inactive cyanocobalamin has to be converted to the active methylcobalamin. Being celiac we have malabsorption issues so we don't convert the b12 very well. If you take the methyl form via sublingual you don't even have to worry about absorption through the gut as it will be absorbed through the mucosa in the mouth.

B12 needs folate and vice versa. Make sure you're getting enough folic acid/folate. Again methylfolate (the already converted form of folic acid) is probably the better option. It is sometimes sold as Metafolin or Deplin. Or you might see it as 5-MTHF (methyl tetrahydrofolate).

I hope all that helps.

And this is my first post. Hi everyone. :P

    • Pocah, how long have you been gluten-free? i used to get the rash, or the itch at first, on my elbows for the tiniest amount of g. But after 8+ years, it no longer happens! I ate corn flakes twice, as breading, not checking the ingredients. Thought my husband did. He didn't know about malt flavoring, or probably forgot! Anyway, I got c instead. I miss my dh indicator. C is so normal in my life it doesn't stand out.
    • I wonder if this post is referring to me?  I tested high positive with blood tests and was denied an endoscopy as it was seen as unnecessary.  The Dr. said they already knew it was celiac based on the extremely high blood test.  I immediately went gluten free and all further testing including endoscopy which I had to beg and barter and pull strings to get, have been negative.  Might it be Pellagre instead?  My fatigue is much better gluten free but carbohydrates seem to cause almost instant brain fog.  I have at times doubted my diagnosis because it came from a misinformed Dr.
    • For me, the rash is rather handy. It serves as an indicator that I have exposed myself to gluten. With about 1 teaspoon of wheat based product ( bread etc ) I will come out in a rash somewhere within about six hours or so, and it will be itchy for about 24 hours then disappear. It gets worse the more gluten I consume. But looking on the bright side, it lets me know if I have encountered a "hidden source" of gluten, which is good. Rather this rash than the consequences of prolonged exposure from a hidden source.
    • Reality check in the past few weeks, looks like I got glutened at what should be a "safe" restaurant for gluten-free and gone right back to the beginning again recovery-wise Now too scared to eat anywhere and turning down social opportunities because of the food issues, what a miserable way to live this is.
    • Your issues is probably with the carbs then. there is a alternative. best pricing is miracle noodle. For Konjac rice substitute. Konjac flour works with some people others it does not. https://miraclenoodle.com/collections/miracle-noodle-rice-products There is a trick to cooking it but they make no carb noodles, and rice. I use the rice to make all kinds of rice like dishes like my mothers mexican fried rice etc. It does have a tad off texture and flavor but comes close. If your looking for no carb breads Julians Bakery makes some pretty decent breads but you HAVE to toast them to use them. I just found them a month ago....First time eating a bread in 2 year, and first time in as long as I can recall eating one that did not make me feel bloated and fat. No carbs, no sugars, no yeast, no dairy, no soy, and very low sodium...... Been eating french toast, vegan cheesy bread, bread with almond butter and sugar free jam I have honestly been in food heaven since I found it. BTW some celiacs can not tolerate any grains very rare but it happens.    OH and on what I have is really bad Ulcerative Colitis, so I have a bunch of other trigger foods that cause inflammation, bleeding, distention, constipation, gas, bloating etc. Carbs/sugars is a huge one for me fructose, glucose, sucrose.
