Stomach Bloating?
0

4 posts in this topic

Is there any relief for upper stomach bloating? I have GI not celiac disease (as far as I know) and ate some gluten-free potato chips and my upper stomach blew up like a balloon. :( I'll be talking to a doctor soon about other intolerances. But in the mean time, are there any suggestions to relieve the bloating? I took some Gaviscon which helps with the indigestion but the bloating stays andit makes it more difficult to breathe with the fullness. I took a Zantac 150 earlier but it didn't help at all.

Thanks for your help!

Was there rice flour in the potato chips? Rice always makes me bloat. I avoid all grains now, my tummy is so much happier!

Also, if they were fried in industrial seed oils, like sunflower and canola, those all cause inflammation in the GI tract (because of the high omega 6 content and of course canola is almost always GMO.)

Eating as close to a whole foods diet as you can is the best thing you can do.

This book, if you haven't read it, is really really awesome and the diet is GREAT for healing leaky gut:

Hope you feel better! :)

Thank you for your reply! No, the potato chips were baked Lays so no rice. Dried potatoes, corn oil, corn starch, salt, soy lecithen, sugar and corn sugar. I'm having a really tough time eating healthy. I have always been a picky eater and ate a lot of junk food and processed foods growing up. I don't have an acquired taste for most veggies. Thank you for the book reference! I can't believe the Kindle version is 13.00, geez! lol I'll still check it out though. :)

Congrats on your signature milestones! Do you still suffer from Fibromyalgia?

Ahhh, sneaky corn! A lot of folks around here have corn sensitivities too, myself included. That's totally one that worth doing an elimination diet to see if you're sensitive to.

You know, I didn't used to like too many veggies either. My mom always complained about it! lol. But once I changed my diet, my palate changed some too. Now I even crave kale and cauliflower sometimes, it's weird. All of those processed foods are just addictive I think.

But even minus the processed foods, you can still eat really yummy things. Right now I'm making some chicken drumettes with a honey, mustard, and goat butter glaze.... They're killer!

And thank you! My fibromyalgia is way, way better than it used to be. It doesn't bother me unless I eat something weird.

    • Thankyou for your advice i am getting so confused as some people are saying you dont need the biopsy and others are saying you do need it as it comes with other tests connected to thyroid, iron etc? just want to start being gluten free asap! did you go for the endoscopy? 
    • Hello One drawback is that there are no guarantees. You may go through the testing process and not get the answer you want or need. I did go through testing after having been gluten free and was stunned when I was told it was negative. By that point I'd gone through the challenge and seen various symptoms return so I thought I'd definitely be diagnosed celiac. The consultant advised me to go gluten free anyway and because I'd good evidence to support that I've not had any problems staying on the diet since then. So it can be done, it just requires a certain mind set, essentially I live my life as if the diagnosis was positive. No exceptions.   I think  this is where people make a mistake, if it's 'just' gluten sensitivity' then they can make exceptions on special occasions etc. I think that makes it harder to live gluten free because you still have to make choices and judgments about whether to eat gluten or not. For me, it's never an option so I don't have the conversation. Everyone around me understands that as well. Only you can decide on this. I don't regret doing it because I learned more about my bodies reactions but I found the challenge unpleasant as my reaction to gluten had become more extreme after removing it from my diet. You won't gain much for yourself, the answer is still the same and you already have enough info to know you should never eat gluten again, but your kids may gain if your positive diagnosis keeps them monitored in later life.  Best of luck!  
    • For me personally a medium result, in that situation,  would be enough to convince me that I had celiac disease.  Probably the standard of care is to also get a biopsy. Going gluten free is difficult so some people want to do all the tests they can so they can make the best choice. Generally more testing is thought of as providing better patient care. I think it is a personal preference thing though.   
    • Hi all i hope you can help me i have just had blood tests for celiac and they both come back as a positive result the 1st test was a low reading but the 2nd test was a medium result, i am now waiting a 4 week wait for a endoscopy/biopsy. Not trying to get out of the endoscopy as i have had this procedure before but is it really necessary to have this done when it has been confirmed in the blood tests, i know that they look to see if damage had been done but surely the damage is already been done. Any advice would be great
    • I have been eating dark chocolate bars as well as cocoa powder. Both are highly processed (this is an exception to the no processed food rule) which I am sure removes a lot of the nutrients.  I might try the nibs as I am sure they are more nutritious and they look really good.  I am suspicious of using hemp, for myself,  but it is interesting that chocolate and chilly peppers have some of the same chemicals!  I actually tried chocolate as it has flavinoids which act as a "xanthine oxidase inhibitors".  I have gouty arthritis which is caused by a build up of uric acid in the blood. Coffee and an chocolate are thought to help with that. I might react negatively to coffee  though so I am trying chocolate.
