Questions For You All? Leaky Gut?

Hello everyone! I've been gluten-free, nut free, soy free and tomato free. I still have bloating in the evenings. Sometimes more than others. It seems I cannot eat raw veggies or anything raw, it is worse then. I love fresh veggies and fruit, but can only do berries. My bloat seems to come on at the same time of night with mild cramping. Am I totally crazy or does this sound familiar. Any ideas or suggestions welcomed!

Two years in, I was in much the same place as you, minus a few more foods. It was suggested I still had a leaky gut and I dismissed the idea after all I had done and all the foods I had eliminated and all the supplements I had taken. Nevertheless, on expert advice, I went on a fairly involved supplementation program, the most important of which I believe was the probiotic VSL#3. Since that time I have not "lost" any more foods, can tolerate corn starch and potato starch (just keep me away from the lectins) and soy lecithin, which has simplified my life a lot. And funnily enough, since this past summer when I was on a nasogastric feeding tube being fed something my husband approved as safe for me (some kind of non-corn, non-gluten slurry :P ) my residual bloating and belching seems to have gone away :ph34r: Touching wood whilst keying that in. VSL#3 is expensive, but for me I believe it is what worked to finally heal me up.

After 18 months on a strict gluten-free diet and still having problems, a doctor recommended that I put one scoop of Metagenics UltraClear Sustain Medical Food into my smoothie every day. After two weeks, I felt as though I'd never had celiac. Life was good...and my digestion was great.

    • Alessio Fasano at Mass General.  or Maureen Leonard.  Mass General has a Celiac disease program at the Children's Hospital there in Boston. You literally could not be any closer to the best. Google it. Good luck.
    • You need to get a full celiac panel including ttg, dgp, ema and overall iga.  all of those should be ordered I would be suspicious of a doctor who did not order the entire panel.  a lot of people on here including myself started off with a GI doctor who was not too Savvy with celiac disease and ended up having to get second opinions.   you may want to consider getting the genetic tests as well however know that 30 to 40% of the population carries the gene it does not mean it will be activated. If you do not carry the gene It practically rules out Celiac. If you do carry it you will need to undergo further testing.  do not stop eating gluten until all the testing has been done. a lot of folks make that mistake as well. Keep us posted.   you should probably get some vitamin levels done as well iron, vitamin D, B12 to start.
    • These results, assuming you have been on a gluten free diet since the original tests in 2015, likely mean you are still being exposed to gluten which is why you still feel shitty.  Go see a GI or go on a non processed gluten free no going out to eat strict diet for 3 months and see how you feel. 
    • Kitty!  Thank you so much!  Reading these words is so reassuring....  I've had a horrid weekend googling 'white spot on tongue'  - so many horror stories about such a symptom.   I then read a few more articles which were more balanced and gave other things - such as teeth grinding and sharp teeth being a cause, which for my sanity's sake I'm trying to focus on!  Esp. as said sore is remaining stubbornly on my tongue! I must thank you for the links, too. Fascinating: In one it talks about 'Crazy muscle cramps in the form of stabbing pains in toes, calves, arches of feet, and backs of legs.' The Deficiency: Magnesium, calcium, and potassium. "If it's happening frequently, it's a tip-off that you're lacking in these,"  That's absolutely incredible - I never knew that, as at night I am being woken by these pains in my toes and feet.  Thank you so much.  I did used to supplement these things and have stopped.  I will look into this and try to eat more healthily and supplement too in the short to medium term while I recover.   I'm off to see my doctor tomorrow so having this information that you have sent in mind will be so helpful.   My tongue is the weirdest colour - my dentist spotted it straight away and said, 'Wow, you are anemic'.  So if my ferritin is low - which I know it is  - I'm probably running other deficiencies too.  Thank you so much again for taking the time to post.
