How long till I feel better when I'm eating gluten free?

by E

I wonder how long it can take for the pain in my stomach to get better.

I have been eating gluten free for two weeks now and I still have very much pain.

A NES therapist found out I had gluten intolerance. I thought so myself, because bread caused so much problems for me.

Is this diagnosis reliable?

My doctor just said I was not eating well so I naturally had pain, but I think that was wrong. I couldn't even eat because of nausea,pain and cramps.

I told him, so many times, but he did not listen.

Well, sorry, There were two questions in this e-mail.

I would be happy to receive an answer.

Thank you,

E Ek

Gluten Free and still have stomach pain
by: Kerri Knox, RN-The Immune Health Queen!

Hi E,

It's sad to hear that doctors in the Nederlands are as clueless about gluten as they are here in the US.

Yes, if you are having constant stomach pain and your doctor can't find anything wrong with you, then I believe that you probably do have gluten sensitivity.

Two weeks is not a long time to be off gluten, you should really notice a difference in about 30 to 60 days. But there could be some other reasons why you are not feeling better.

First, have you eliminated ALL gluten from your diet? Gluten is EVERYWHERE and you really need to read labels carefully. If you are very sensitive to gluten, then having gluten free grains that were in the same bins as your gluten containing grains were, then it will be contaminated and you will not get better.

Second, if you truly have gluten intolerance then your intestines will be damaged. This intestinal damage, damages the cells that produce lactose, the enzyme required to break down milk. As a result, you become lactose intolerant and can't digest milk either!

This is true in nearly ALL cases of gluten sensitivity. So, it's very possible that you are not feeling better simply because of lactose intolerance- and not because of anything having to do with gluten!

So, be sure to get rid of ALL sources of gluten and go off of dairy for a few weeks and see if that makes you feel better.
