  1. Good afternoon, I am a gluten and dairy sensitive person, but I also have had symptoms that are more similar to IBD as well. I recently started drinking this new coconut water from a company called Bai. They advertise gluten free, dairy free, vegan, and they use a sweetener that explains why one...
  2. So I’ve felt a lot better after going gluten and dairy free. Although I’ve found that whenever I eat hard foods (in this case, chips and granola bars, as well as some meats that my body just won’t tolerate) that I get constipated, although I don’t “feel constipated” which has me wondering where on ea...
  3. So good news!! Since then, I reached out to a different Gastroenterologist, and explained all my symptoms again and also explained how the previous Dr. Just wanted to do a sigmoid scope, and explained my issues with that. Also explained how my gluten testing was messed up since I went gluten free...
  4. Wow I never even considered xanthem gum! I would like to test the theory but I’m also a little worried about starting the symptoms. Currently I’m trying to eat only Whole Foods, and avoid trigger foods for me (onions, peppers, spices, dairy, etc). I’ve also tried a few different magnesium products latel...
  5. So Recently I just had an office visit with a Gastroenterologist, who ordered a flex sigmoidoscopy, which is basically half of the colon, vs a colonoscopy which is the whole thing. They want to do this before an endoscopy. (I’m assuming they want to rule out something like UC, since my celiac blood p...
  6. What would you say is the best diet to follow up until two weeks prior to colonoscopy / endoscopy? I will try to eat more Whole Foods, would a paleo diet be a good choice? (Assuming is gluten free of course). So far it’s been very hard on me for eating out, my family loves going out to eat, but m...
  7. So while I’ve been gluten free for a while, I’m still having some odd symptoms while waiting for my colonoscopy. Every now and then I have constipation or a pain in my gut, followed by pencil thin stools several days later. While I know I have reactions to Gluten, could this be something else cau...
  8. So since I’ve gone gluten free, I’ve had some issues with getting enough fiber. I take fiber supplements and drink prune juice daily to help with this. Recently though I’ve been constipated, I took a “smooth move” tea, and helped with this issue VERY FAST! I’ve been having trouble staying “regular” a...
  9. You sound a lot like me! I no longer have cravings after going gluten and dairy free. My stools are not as hard or large, I don’t eat as much either. Don’t feel bad. Im currently I’m the middle of being diagnosed so I’m not sure if I am celiac or not, I know for sure I am atleast intolerant though....
  10. So I’ve recently had a problem with gluten and dairy. The blood test came back negative for celiac, so I am planning for an endoscopy in a few months when my college semester ends. Unfortunately due to my own ignorance and lack of knowledge of celiac and gluten testing, I’ve been gluten free for...
  11. So I do not have a diagnosis yet. My blood test for celiac came back negative, I have all the symptoms of gluten sensitivity but it doesn’t allear to be as strong as someone with celiac. ( I can afford to eat a piece of glutened food, but I get bad symptoms if I eat it consistently.) The doctor a...
  12. I’m new to all this Celiac and gluten free stuff so I apologize if I come off as ignorant. I’ve been to two Gastroenterologists are both have told me that my Gluten issues where not Celiac, I do get stomache cramps when I eat gluten, and if I eat gluten consistently I suddenly become allergic to ...
  13. So I was wondering, is anal bleeding something that happens with celiac disease? From what I’ve read, celiac disease doesn’t directly cause it, but if your gut is inflamed it can happen. I’m currently waiting to get my colonoscopy. (Scheduled for a month from now) but every couple of months I wou...
  14. So after an array of awful symptoms like abdominal pain, alternating constipation and diarrhea, and loss of appetite, something left really wrong but I didn’t get the push to go to the doctor until I had a little blood tinged mucus after wiping. Then I knew something was really hurting my intestines. ...
  15. So before I went gluten free, I would get a a ting of blood with mucus on the toilet paper when I wiped. I wouldn’t call it bleeding, it was just noticeable. I would get that roughly every couple of months, so very rarely but enough to notice. At one time the blood was dark red, the following time i...
