  1. I've had celiac for about 4 years now and I've been following a strict gluten free diet, but whenever I go out drinking or something like that the next day i usually plan to stay home because i get stomach aches and stuff. Now I'm about to go Sydney (Australia) for a festival and I'm planning on having a bender and I'm wondering how I should deal with my stomach aches. Sometimes i'd drink alcohol and get a real bad stomach ache where i can't be too far from the toilet and other times i drink and i don't even get a stomach ache at all. I normally drink henessy and jim beam spirits. 


    What do you guys think i should drink? Is there any sort of medication that can stop these stomach aches? And i was also wondering about spirits, gluten free beers and ciders? What can and can't I drink? 

  2. Did you check your hand soaps and lotions to make sure they're gluten free? What was the last result of your blood tests? Have your antibodies gone down? It could be another intolerance. I know that I'm also lactose intolerant but I can manage small amounts of dairy, but if I have too much I get an upset stomach and the big D. So you might eat a large amount of something your intolerant to on a certain day to give you that reaction. Just a thought.

    last time i had a blood test the doctor said the antibodies have gone down so much that he didnt need to schedule another blood test with me. Ive been checked for fructose intolerance, dairy intolerance but results come back saying i'm not either.

  3. A celiac's ravaged gut may not be able to handle alcohol right away. It is a gut- irritant and causes gastritis.

    Diarrhea is common with a gut that is still impaired.

    A simple diet for the first 6 months may be your best bet.

    Recovery sometimes takes patience.

    Hang in there! 

    What i meant to say instead of 3 months was 3 years, sorry about that confusion. I've had celiac for 3 years since i was 15.. i'm now 18 but i get constant diarrhea over everything i swear. I feel like my stomachs a moody little whining 12 year old girl, because sometimes i wake up and its diarrhea day and i know i'm not going anywhere.

  4. I've had celiac for about 3 years and i have a constant unsettled stomach. When i wasnt diagnosed i was eating gluten obviously because i had no idea, i was 15 at the time but then i got diagnosed and stopped completely. For the first two weeks my stomach was really normal you know? like no stomach aches no random trips to the toilet and no i wasnt eating anything different i was eating everything gluten free nothing out of the ordinary and nothing in specific. After that two weeks my stomach just went down hill like i wasnt eating gluten anymore but i was. Now everyone tells me it takes awhile for your stomach to heal, but im a 18 year old kid and i have to plan my life on how my stomach is feeling. I could eat the same food one night and have a good stomach the next but then eat the same thing then be grounded because i'll have stomach aches and have to constantly go toilet. To put it simply sometimes i get diarrhea for no reason  at all. Everyone says maybe i'm sensitive to other foods and should keep a diary but i eat the same food and feel good then the next day if i eat the same food ill get diarrhea or something or an unsettled, uneasy stomach. 

    Sorry for the lengthy post, but please this is ruining my life. I dont care if i have to occasionally watch my friends eat at restaurants while drooling but when i get celiac i was under the impression that when you eat gluten free you will have regular stool and normal bowel movements..... and notice when your about to need to go toilet. This is kind of ruining my life, no doctors can help and yes i've been to dietitians. I would really much appreciate a reply because i don't know what to do. 

    BTW: IBS medicines don't work, i have tried celiac enzymes, no improvement.

  5. So i've been celiac for about 3 months and have been following a strict gluten free diet, but whenever i drink alcohol in particular spirits i get stomach aches and have to go toilet quite often the next day. Can someone enlighten me on what may be the cause and why it keeps happening and also how to handle the symptoms. Its to the point where whenever i drink i have to make sure ive got nothing on the next day. 


  6. I was diagnosed with celiac roughly 2 years and a half ago. Ive been on a gluten free diet ever since, recently ive been noticing that my stomach aches have been beyond what they used to be also i would 
    get really bad stomach aches and really watery stool. Its very painful, and extremely unpredictable, It makes it hard to go to school. 

    Getting to the point i was wondering if it is possible that i have fructose aswell? I eliminated dairy in case i am lactose intolerant, still no improvment. 

  7. Around about now ive had cealiac for about two years, and its been generally pretty bad. Ive stuck to a gluten free diet for abou the whole two years and ive noticed not much of a change in my stomach pattens. I was diagnosed after i got cealiac a few months later. I drank some mass gainer protein then i got it. I've eliminated all the gluten out of my diet but i still get these stomach aches, it never gets much better.
