I Am New To Pancratic Enzymes And Recently Started Rotational Diet?

5 posts in this topic

I recently started rotational diet, pancreatic enzymes, and vitamin B 12. Sorry all of you scientific people to start 3 things at once, but that is where I am at.

1 My tummy is noisy, noisy, noisy.

2 I am experiencing some pain in the lower abdomen.

3 My pants are getting too short. Okay, what I think I mean is that I am losing tummy and must pull the pants farther up to compensate for it. I don't think I have lost weight. The inches are only down to my lowest normal level.

4. . I had been tending toward diarreah since going gluten free. I was really constipated a couple of days.

5. My head seems clear day after day, except when I had a very constipated day once. Then after I got cleaned out, I feel really good for a while.

6. Sometimes, I feel very unusally well, extremely well, is more like it. Don't get me giddy!

7. Sometimes I think I am surely dying.

8. I felt ticklish for the first time in years.

I have double checked all of the new supplements for gluten and they all check out. I am wondering if I am now feeling pain, because I am not so numb as I was. I have been surprized on the forum when people talked about a painful expereience. I bloated 9 inches overnight once, but felt no pain whatsoever. That is one of the reasons that I went 30 years undiagnosed. I couldn't feel what was happening to me.

Various stages of inflammation can cause all of this.

The only thing I can suggest is don't change too much too quickly or you will never know which change is helping or conversely -- hurting.

I don't know what pancreas thing you are on. I tried one called Pancreatin. Someone told me they thought I should try it and stupidly I did, even though I didn't think that I had pancreas symptoms. That stuff made me sooo sick to my stomach! After taking it for a week, I had to stop. Then my stomach got a lot better.

I had a nutrient blood test and was found short of pancreatic enzymes, so that is why I decided to take them. I am almost certainly swollen, but have been arguing with my doctors about it. I say swollen, but they just say I am the shape I am! I didn't get a marker test for swelling. I keep wondering if I "should" look emaciated, but I am not. I haven't been absorbing well.

I have failed every blood test for inflammation my entire life - yet when I am in a state of healing I look 20 pounds lighter over night and my joint pain disappears - bloating returns and so does pain - i dont just mean abdominal bloat - i bloat everywhere yet docs always told me my weight is simply a matter of calories in - calories out. This is untrue in a body in constant AI crisis.

Supplements can be helpful, but too many can be harsh on an already inflammed digestive system.

Should add each of my four endos show severe inflammation - sed and crp do not show the entire picture of inflammation in your body.

    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
    • While you could very well be vitamin/mineral deficient, you could also have issues with your thyroid.  Autoimmune thyroid is common with .......autoimmune celiac disease.  Your doctor should order a full thyroid panel, including thyroid antibodies.   Your blood sugar should also be checked (autoimmune diabetes).  I am not saying you have these issues, but these AI issues are common with celiac disease.  In fact, you can develop or have more than one AI issue.   If I feel a very strong need to nap, I know my thyroid is off and my doctor should be notified.  A simple blood test usually verifies that an adjustment to my thyroid replacement is needed.   That said, you are in the healing stages of celiac disease.   Eat healthy and include plenty of fats to keep you satiated.  Try to avoid processed foods.  Make sure that gluten-free diet is varied and full of veggies.  Get plenty of rest.  Just listen to your body.  Soon you will feel much better.  
    • Hi and welcome Can you tell us a little about your diet? What are you eating on a typical day? You may find that some simple switches in food choices can deliver more energy and fewer spikes and crashes. This is something that receives too little attention, particularly from the medical community. It can come as a huge shock to the system and as the implications become apparent its easy to feel overwhelmed. This certainly happened to me and many others here so first do know that you're not alone. You are currently grieving believe it or not and you will be going through the stages of grief.  Second, although it may not feel it now, it WILL get better and you will adjust and adapt as you get used to the diet and start focusing on what you can still do rather than what you can't.  In the meantime, this is a good place to vent and share those feelings as they are perfectly natural and understandable and whilst not always helpful,  they are a part of you and a part of the healing process. Go easy on yourself, this is very early days. You are young, which is good news, it means you will heal sooner and you will adapt quicker and there's lots of good things on the way for you as your body gets a rest from the gluten that's been holding you back.  All the best!

    • Hope it proves of use  The Umberto Volta interview is particularly interesting and the case study from England also...
    • Following a gallbladder surgery, I could not get my digestive system back to normal.  After several months of constant diarrhea, I went to see the gastro dr. and told her my problems. I also mentioned that I had a sister, brother and nephew with Celiacs.  She said, "I'm almost sure that's the problem".  I, like you, did not want to go back to eating gluten so I did the gene test but it was not positive.  I learned it is not always an exact test.  It came back with Crohns which so far I have no symptoms.  The Endoscopy  indicated Hpylori, CDiff, and one other bacteria.  After I took all the meds to clear my body of these bacterias, I was still having  some symptons of diarrhea and found that I thought I was clear of all gluten but I had a long way to go. Throwing away a wooden cutting board my dad had given me, lipstick, lipgloss, makeup, handcream, plastics in the kitchen, pans that had a scratch, any item in the pantry that had any of the items with starch that may have gluten and the list goes on and on.  I'm still reading labels but I definately can tell a difference as I have eliminated more items that I had no idea were harmful.  This website has been a life-saver for me.  Thank You so much for your wealth of information.   Linda Fortson
