Celiac Disease and the Sleeve



Recommended Posts

I got the sleeve because my mom had celiac and doc thought it was my best option. It's what I wanted anyhow. I think I'm in first stages of celiac but don't have any info for you.

Yes Catherine, that was a main concern along with others. I've had Rheumatoid Arthritis and couldn't take the meds should I ever need them again in the future, if I had the RNY. I had no interest in RNY, it was either sleeve or a long lifetime of major dieting.

I've had wheat and milk sensitivities for years. It wasn't until after the sleeve that we (my doc and I) realized that I have celiac. I had chronic diarrhea and abdominal pain since surgery. It was the gluten in my food. I've stopped eating all gluten and my other intolerances and I have improved greatly.

My surgery was August 20, 2009. I've lost 90 pounds since then and 110 since the start of the process.

Hello. I am in the process of scheduling the sleeve. I have celiac sprue as well as soy and nut allergies and am concerned because the high Protein Drinks required after surgery contain soy and wheat. Any ideas on alternatives?

Thank you!

I haven't had any issues with gluten in proterin drinks, and the pre-mixed drinks typically have the allergens listed, Have you looked an Unjury products? I really like them...they are not as sweet as others. You can order a sample pack from thier website. Also, I am using Worldwide Protein Shakes, and I don't believe they contain soy. I'm sure you'll find the products you need. The websites usually have good infomration about the products.

I have Celiacs and my surgery will be in dec. The only problem I have had so far is that many of the Protein Shakes have gluten in them. The muscle milk products are gluten free and lactose free they are great

Bewitched-

I'm so happy for you that your Celiac was diagnosed. There's nothing worse than the chronic diarrhea and feeling generally pretty awful. I've been on the gluten free diet for seven years and am doing great. Well, maybe a little too great--but the sleeve will help with that!!!

I am scheduled in June for surgery and wondering of those out there with Celiac, have you had trouble getting enough foods with Proteins or with gluten free diets since the surgery?

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
