Gluten Symptoms

Gluten Symptoms

Gluten Intolerence.
What exactly are the symptoms you get when you eat anything with gluten? Thank you for sharing I appreciate it.
I have IBS-D and want to know if gluten could be causing some of my flares.

Hello fellow Warriors!
For years I had bad stomach cramps, diarrhea, constipation and bloating. We ate a lot of baked goods as a kid. Every day after breakfast I got bad stomach cramps. My family figured I just didn't want to go to school. If only they had known. About 10 years ago I had a conversation with my GP and he figured I had IBS and should try to get gluten free. I did and wow! What a difference. If I behave, ๐Ÿ˜† I feel good and the gut symptoms go away. Not much later, about 3 years, I noticed that there was oil floating in the toilet when I had a bowl movement. Mentioned it to GP and he said you are now Celiac. I am by nature a sugar holic and crave sweets. So you can guess how hard it is for me to eat Gluten free. ๐Ÿ˜ข I have also developed the buddy intolerance to gluten - dairy. Cheese and yoghurt are ok, just straight Milk not ok.

Long story short, I still have severe symptoms. Gas, bloating, constipation, diarrhea , severe cramps, migraines, full body aches and more. Gluten really does put me into bad flares. Hope you all have better luck than I have.

Thank you and God bless!

I'm not gluten intolerant but my dad is and so when I was living with my parents when I moved to NC, I ate what my mom made. She makes very healthy food and uses nothing with gluten in it and I can tell you, I did feel a lot better. I don't think gluten is good for anyone. She also buys some gluten free bread at Costco that's very yummy toasted. :) And they also found that Papa Murphy's Pizza (a take and bake) makes a great gluten free pizza and it's cheap. :) She loads it down with veggies and chicken instead of the traditional Meat and fats. They just ask for less cheese. :) Oh and the white garlic sauce is very very good with the chicken! They don't have one near me, so I'm so sad. :( โ™กโ™กโ™ก You all! :)

I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease about 4 or 5 years ago. This was after being diagnosed with Crohn's Disrase, irritable bowel syndrome, Finally, a new GI Dr. Did a colonoscopy, and said and did blood work to test my antibodies. He diagnosed me with Celiac Disease and told me no gluten, or symptoms would continue. It's amazing how much better I feel. 5 years ago, there was very little gluten free recipes or food. Now, there are Gluten Free Restaurants and some restaurants serve gluten free food - but beware - some say they have gluten free menus but if they cook it with other foods, you can still get sick, I had, in the past, HORRIBLE bouts of Diarrhea
If I ate anything with flour or wheat. I would check with Dr. Before going gluten free, because I read it's not healthy to decide if you are Celiac or gluten free intolerant.
Hope you feel better soon!
