• Intermittent diarrhea
• Abdominal pain
But celiac disease can have signs that may be less obvious:
• Irritability or depression
• Stomach upset
• Joint pain
• Muscle cramps
• Skin rash, mouth sores, or tingling in the legs and feet
We can test to see if you have gluten intolerance. We can also give you recommendations for a gluten-free diet.
Call me at 626.963.6627 If you have any questions or visit my website.
If you’re still not feeling better, we can create a diet plan for you to eliminate other possible causes of food allergies. But if you’re still having symptoms, it could be an infection, and we might recommend you talk to your doctor.

A client came to see my complaining about constipation. I suggested a few things like drinking more water, eating more vegetables and taking flaxseed meal. It was also important to reduce stress by getting rid of foods that may be causing intestinal inflammation, getting to bed early and sleeping eight hours and doing some light exercise.
By following the suggestions her bowel movements became normal. My definition of normal is having 2 to 3 bowel movements a day, the stools are soft and long, like bananas. She was very happy because she never had normal bowel movements.

It is not easy to figure out if you have celiac disease or are non-celiac sensitive. Many nutritionists suggest to simply go off gluten for a few weeks to see if you notice any difference in symptoms. That can be a good idea especially if you don’t have insurance or can’t afford testing.
However, you could still have gluten issue if symptoms do not change. You could also have no symptoms and still have a gluten issue.
There is a lab that I like to use that does differentiate between celiac disease and non-celiac sensitive.
At Jeri Evans Nutrition, I educate clients on health and food planning. We use laboratory tests to help understand nutrition imbalance, which is often the result of blood sugar issues, anemia, adrenal dysfunction or infections. We often recommend specific supplements to help find positive results
I believe in discussing solutions and possibilities on an individual basis. Many of my clients tell me how good they feel and how much more energy they have. They sleep deeper, their weight normalizes and their bowel movements are more regular since being on the Jeri Evans Nutrition, Inc. Plan.
Gluten makes dough ‘stretchy’, but for people with celiac disease (gluten intolerance) eating any foods containing gluten can bring on a wave of unpleasant symptoms. These can include diarrhea, abdominal pain, bloating, anemia, and fatigue. It can even damage your small intestine and lead to poor nutrient absorption.
People with this condition very often “just feel sick” and don’t know why. Finding out if you have gluten sensitivity and eliminating gluten from your food may help.

I really like Tanka Bars.
Ingredients are buffalo and cranberries.
They are gluten, soy, dairy, and corn free. They are glycemically balanced and taste like beef jerky.
After investigating with the help of the Celiac Sprue Association, I found out that the milk contained a small amount of barley. Because it was a small amount the manufacturer didn’t need to include barley in the ingredients. The information was in the FAQ section.
My symptoms dissapeared when I stopped drinking the milk.
Celiac disease is on the rise. What is it, and what are the symptoms?
Celiac disease is a disabling digestive disorder caused by a reaction to gluten. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye and some oats. It is also an ingredient in foods processed with these grains.
When you have celiac disease, and you eat food containing gluten, the gluten triggers an autoimmune response, similar to an allergic reaction. The reaction damages the lining of your small intestine, where most of your digestion takes place. This results in reduced nutritional asorption, vitamin deficiencies, and even malnutrition.
The symptoms vary among individuals, but generally include diarrhea, malodorous, fouls-smelling flatulence, abdominal pain and bloating, and increased amounts of fat in the stool (steatorrhea).
Because of nutritional definicies, many sufferers might have weight loss, osteoporosis (bone density loss), muscle weakness, and bruise easily, among others.
