On gluten free diet, had light pink on tissue after bowel movements. What could this be?

I recently just switched to a gluten free diet despite testing negative for celiac disease because my intestinal issues were so severe I thought I could possibly have gluten sensitivity still. But yesterday when I had a BM, I noticed the tissue was light pink after wiping. In the past my internal hemoroids would be bright red blood. What could this be?

Hello,

It may be due to abnormal bacterial overgrowth or candida in the gut or it may be due to an altered color of hemorrhoidal blood by bacteria or undigested tablet or coloring agents etc.

Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is.

Avoid gluten and lactose contain food. Use tablet pantoprazole.

Get done stool examination and then consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I have severe abdominal distention every day no matter what I eat or drink to the point of looking pregnant. I sometimes am extra gassy. I feel fatigued often, and sometimes moody. I found out I was anemic which has since gotten better from taking iron, but could that be a symptom of my stomach problems? I am a 21 year old female and have had this problem for several years. I have 3-6 bowel movements a day, a couple of them loose, and usually immediately after eating. I have tried gluten and lactose free diets, had a colonoscopy, gallbladder scan, and tested for giardia. I ve been told I just have IBS, but I think these symptoms are caused from something. I am getting an endoscopy in the next week. What are other possibilities of what could cause my symptoms and severe bloating? Thanks!

I have medically diagnosed IBS and have had it for many years. I m trying Colofac but find that my IBS has gone from diarrhoea every few days to diarrhoea/constipation. I ve been on a strict gluten free diet for many years after having a colonoscopy and gastroscoopy which showed the colon to be clear. I had a hydrogen breath test for gluten & at first things were better but now I don t know what I should be taking. My doctor is sick of me calling her and has asked me to come and see her on Monday. I think she ll say to go back to the gastroentrologist which I don t feel up to doing as I m so weak.

Hello, My husband has been diagnosed with a celiac disease some 4 years ago. He was doing good on a gluten free diet until this spring. He joined a Catholic Church during Easter celebration and even though our Church offers gluten free host, he would be going to other churches during the week and would receive a regular gluten host there. He was doing that for about 2 months once a week and then he would go to Church every day for 3 weeks and receive gluten every day except on Sundays. He became more spiritual than ever during that time. About a week and a half ago he started having visions and torments. First five days were terrible. He says God works on him and now all he can do is to wait for an answer..... He had to stop working obviously. We all believe (family and priests) that he s having hallucinations due to messing up with gluten. Could that be right? What should we do and where should we take him? It s heartbreaking to watch him standing and looking up to the sky or mirror. Please help! Thank you for your time. Anna Williams

Hi, I have coeliac disease and have been adhering to a gluten free diet for about a year now since I was diagnosed. I ve always had a problem with fatigue and had attributed it to the coeliac disease; however, now that I m on a gluten free diet I had thought that might alleviate it - it hasn t. I can sleep anywhere from 5 to 15 hours a night and always have the same lethargy, despite trying different sleeping patterns, drowning myself in coffee, having B12 injections , and doing awake things like getting out and about. Is there anything you could recommend to make me less sleepy all the time?

I have Epilepsy and Celiac Disease and it is very difficult to find gluten-free drugs that are generic (because of my co-pay/generic) that don t have gluten in them and when I do some places say that their distributing warehouse says it is N/A. What should I do, I have been calling around to pharmacies and finding out where they get certain drugs for my Epilepsy within a 30 to 40 mile around with not to good a results. What should I do ? I have tried YYYY@YYYY to them to get a certain drug in but yet no results.
