I went g/f after years of problems with digestion and weight. I asked if the symptoms I had and the fact I looked ten months pregnant with triplets were likely to be gluten based but he just shrugged. So for the last few years I have self monitored, knowing when gluten had seeked through. The last few weeks however I am getting symptoms whenever I eat g/f products i.e. Bread. Stomach pains a desire to go to the toilet, as if my body wants rid of what I've eaten but nothing happens for a few hours. I've tried drinking more water both before and while eating but according to my scales my water content is still only 37%
Should I go back to the doctors? will they listen now? will they insist I go back on gluten? Should I ask to see a dietitian?
I'm in my sixties and a lifelong vegetarian. (and I don't like eggs. )
