I know this is an old thread but thought Id throw my 2c worth in!
I am a coeliac and my surgeon had no worries or concerns with me being sleeved.
So much stuff can be found gluten free now, and really, if we eat a healthy natural diet, glutenous food can be avoided quite easily!
No gluten in meat, vegies or fruit - the main stuff we should be having anyways..
Just need to watch iron intake, which is taken care of with a good multivitamin, lean meats and greens!

Coles sell milk called Zymil, I drink the low fat one. Iy is a lactose free milk, and tastes great, and I seem to be able to tolerate it it better than normal milk

Lots of diseases aren't contagious; heart disease, heart failure, hypertension, diabetes, cancer etc are all 'diseases'.

I have actually just started drinking lactose free milk, just to see if it makes me feel better. Tastes the same.

My little 2 year old grandson is celiac, and lactose intolerant also. My daughter has also changed her diet and is much healthier and happier since doing so, so may also have the same problem!

PostSubject: I'm a Celiac    Sun 13 Mar 2011, 10:49 pm

Hi,

I've resently updated my PHI, and am counting down the months till i can be sleeved. i havent even had my first consulation with a Sleeve specialist etc. However i'm really worried that my celiac disease (I HATE that its' called a disease, when it's not contagious) could be a major problem, and that i might be considered too high risk, for the surgery.

I currently don't follow a gluten free diet, however i am very picky about how much processed and GF foods i eat. I do know the risks/ long problems of not following a GF diet, but it can be really difficult, especially when you travel a lot.

I'm looking forward to getting a sleeve as it will be the motivation to completely switch to a GF diet.



  • Are there many Celiac's out there that have been sleeved?
  • Were you considered a higher risk for the surgery?
  • How was your recovery after surgery?
  • How are you going post op balancing the new diet and the disease?

Look forward to hearing a few replies?

Thanks Tiff

Hey

I am lactose intolerant as well. Ican usually tolerate some yoghurt and icecream though and a bit of cheese. However at the moment (1 wk post nearly) everything I eat makes me sick. Is this just the fact that your body is different post surgery??? I am avoiding too much dairy. I read on another post reel that it is the whole liquid in liquid out thing. Can anyone advise me and offer suggestions as I am very frustrated at the moment and scared it will not settle down again!!!!

Gal, are you referring to using optifast shakes for protein while on a liquid diet post surgery? There are some varieties out there that are lactose free, Tony Ferguson have a soy chocolate and soy vanilla shake, I'm sure there'd be others.

Sami, if you have been diagnosed with coeliacs you really do need to follow a gluten-free lifestyle. There is heaps of information on the coeliac society of Aus. website, including a really good page on what coeliac disease is and how it affects your absorbtion of minerals and iron etc. and depression.

I am gluten intolerant, suspected coeliac however I have been gluten-free for a few years now, and don't want to have to introduce gluten to my diet for 4-6 weeks in order to have an endoscopy and confirm the diagnosis. My nutritionist didn't want me to do the sleeve surgery until after an endoscopy, however when we discussed it further it boiled down to if I am coeliac then I need to be gluten-free after the sleeve. As I'm happy to be 100% GF from this point onwards there isn't a problem.

If you have coeliac disease and won't be 100% GF I don't think you'll find a nutritionist who will support getting sleeve surgery. There is already a small concern amongst sleeve patients regarding mineral and iron absorbtion, if you add in the issues with coeliac then you'd be high risk of malabsorbtion issues.

Hi everyone,
I was diagnosed with coelics diseas on 2007 however I've just never been able to bring myself to follow the gluten free diet. I'm in antidepressants but I read on another thread on here that as soon as a few people went off gluten they no longer had the symptoms of depression either ? The coeliacs makes me really anaemic and affects my whole life but I have no willpower and it totally effing sucks ! Please help me !!!! I don't know how you can but I just needed to vent....

protien shakes are a hang over from bypass patients in the usa. only a tiny number of patients outside of there ever consume the things and surprise surprise we all not only survive but my oh my actually thrive. trust me you can live with just fresh real food and not suffer at all.

Hey Jelle,

I am lactose intolerant and can only take the slightest hint and I'm unwell. Just out of curiosity, how do you take in the protein shakes as they seem milk based?

Elle if the syptoms you are experencing are bathroom ones you may find it is not the lactose. Just see how things go. A lot of people seem to have a major change in bathroom habbits following surgery for a while. either difficultis in going or going a lot. Just something to keep in mind. From what I have seen most peoples intolerances seem to be a lot better after the sleeve, most peole tend to put this down the amounts of food they are eating tho. so no magic curer. It will be intersting to see how you are 6 or 12 months out :) best of luck.

Hey guys...


I am coeliac.. and have been diagnosed off and on since I was a kid with lactose issues - But since been sleeved I cant stomach any lactose at all - but its not really an issue I guess.




Just wondering If there is anyone else out there with any food...intolerancies - and how your coping with them having been sleeved - and if anyones noticed any changes?!

xx Elle.
