Coeliac Disease and bowel disease - is there anything left to eat?!!! :-(
I was diagnosed approximately a year ago with Coeliac Disease following symptoms during the previous 2 years and a stillbirth at almost 38 weeks. Following diagnosis my symptoms didn't improve whilst on a gluten free diet and a colonoscopy showed that I also have lymphocytic colitis (microscopic bowel disease.) I tried steroids which didn't help & have now been advised to stick to a gluten free, low fat & low fiber diet. I've seen 3 dieticians so far who have all said different things & said they would sent me some info in post which none of them have.
The list of things I shouldn't eat is endless & the hardest thing is that I now can't eat a lot of the healthy foods that I used to enjoy. I'm not allowed to eat raw fruit or veg, anything with skin, seeds, corn, berries, nuts, etc. I don't really enjoy eating anymore and find that for convenience I will often just eat the same thing for several days in a row.
I'm looking for 2 things; to find out if there is anyone else in a similar situation as me who can offer me some advise and for suggestions to help me form a 7 day healthy balanced diet that is gluten free, low fat & low fiber.
I don't feel that I can ever start to think about trying to conceive again until I am confident that my body is getting all the nutrition it needs.
I will add that I am feeling well now which for a long time wasn't the case.
Any comments would be valued xx
