Does anyone have diverticulitis with gluten issues?
Wanting to ask a question. Not for me, but for a friend. My friend hasn’t been diagnosed with a gluten intolerance nor celiac disease at this stage, but I’ve got my suspicions with him. He’s got diverticulitis and I’ve noticed since I’ve known him to always have a swollen stomach with bloating and cramping and body aches, and flatulence and not regular bad bowels.
I suggested you him to try a gluten free diet for awhile and his symptoms he usually has subsided. He started eating gluten again last Saturday and he mentioned he felt flued up with body aches, then his tummy got swollen again more and more daily, and now he’s having a hard time going to the toilet and when he does its wet again.
He’s said the middle of his abdomen hurts currently and he’s uncomfortable and thinks his diverticulitis is coming back… What’s everyone’s thoughts on this? Does anyone here have diverticulitis with gluten issues and any stories on what you experienced prior to being diagnosed then after diagnosis? Thanks
