I've posted on other parts of the forum, as I've said my mum has celiac, I have no positive testing but have had symtoms for about 9 months. I have been gluten free for 5 days and the bad flatuence has reduced a lot and parts of the fullness in the abdomen after eating has reduced a little. Should I avoid dairy as well? As I noticed I had gluten free porridge (with milk) and had quite a bit of burping, also I had a activia and had a bit of gas. Is this normal or am I just over reacting?

It doesn't sound like overraction at all. I'm lactose intolerant (very!) and a glass of milk can cause nightmares, cramping, heavy D, etc. The gas is quite normal if you are indeed lactose intolerant. If you're not lactose intolerant I wouldn't think it would cause the changes if you happen to be celiac. One way to know for sure is to get some strong lactase enzymes and take them as directed when eating meals with milk. If the symptoms change then you will know you have some sort of intolerance to milk. Lactase enzymes are great for those like me who have issues but still want to have dairy in their lives. I take a pretty strong dose when I eat something with much dairy, but I ramped up to that level to know how much my body needs to prevent those symptoms. It's an easy test and you'll know after one or two meals of trying it. And the enzymes are inexpensive and available at pharmacies and department stores over the counter.

Thanks a lot:) I've read stuff where it could just be cos the lactose is hard to digest in the villi where its been damaged by celiac, as I think my problEm is celiac mainly as some of my symtoms have decreased after 5 days.

Milk gets to me too. I usually use coconut or almond milks now; they're not too bad. A serious milk sensitivity can actually cause villi damage too, but I think that's the casein that causes that... not sure though.

It could be the oats too. Many celiacs have issues with oats even if they are of they gluten-free variety. Be careful what oats you use as many are made in facilities with wheat and are often cc'ed.

    • I found out roughly 3 -4 months ago by accident that I am gluten sensitive.  One day I woke up and had joint pain in just about every joint on my left side. ie, elbow, wrist, knuckles, hip, knee, ankle and feet.  I was already having issues with intense foot pain that I mistook for plantar fasciitis.  Once I googled the symptoms, and realized ALL of several other things were happening at the same time as a result of gluten as well, I knew the answer.  I had been bloating in my belly for decades, and also having migraines for years,  but as of this year, I was looking VERY pregnant after each gluten episode. This was highly upsetting.   I am 53, and fairly active otherwise.  I had Migraines, depression, anxiety and now joint pain and peripheral neuropathy.  I'm on anxiety meds, and have hypothyroidism and diabetes 2.   Getting to the bottom of the problems with my symptoms finally, has been exhilarating and exhausting at the same time.  I cannot test for Celiac because my insurance won't pay for this since I am not anemic and have no history of Celiac.  Since I have been eating gluten-free, I have been feeling better, besides the mistakes that produce symptoms within 30 min-an hour.  The last week or two has been the best for not making mistakes, and finally I can eat without feeling horrible. Here's the thing:  I still can't wrap my head around this!  I comb through the forum for answers and have learned so much!  I have an extremely supportive boyfriend.  I just am in so much denial about this.  It's emotional for me and some days I just can't handle it.  I know many people with full blown Celiac's disease have it way worse than I do, I just can't deal with this very easily.  Has anyone else been through the denial phase and emotional upset upon realizing the life changes that have to happen just to feel better when eating?  What did you do about it?
    • The basic idea is that you don't want to use something that might have gluten in/on it.  Pots and pans are easy to wash and get clean - a colander is not - all those little holes full of pasta goo.  A toaster with crumbs.  
    • Newbie mom of 15 yr old DD diagnosed 3 weeks ago. Just purchased brand new Farbwrware, nonstick items. Are these safe to use for her needs? Is it just scratched or oldish Teflon that's not suitable or all Teflon? These will only be used for gluten-free cooking. Trying to learn e as we go.
    • I highly recommend being tested for celiac disease before you go off gluten, if you haven't already done so.
    • Hi.  I'm new to this!  Please help me get started. I want to try..I mean DO...a gluten free life so that, hopefully, my health issues will go away. So, please help me.
