It's not celiac. Now on an elimination diet

User Profile
My son has chronic stomach problems and was diagnosed with celiac in March 2013 he has been gluten free for 1 1/2 years but the pain never went away and 2 weeks ago they redid the biopsy and have now determined he does not have Celiac. He was put on an elimination diet NO FOOD for 3 days then we introduced turkey day 4 on day 5 we introduced lean beef green beans and brown rice. His stomach does not hurt today ( day 6 ) but he says it feels rumbalee not like hunger rumble. Is this normal? or should I be concerned that one of the foods are a problem?His GI doc is almost impossible to get a hold of although he is supposed to call sometime today.

Thank you for asking

That rumble might be a little bowel movement called borborygmi. Trying elimination diet and facing this symptom with a food might be important to note but whether it is fine or worrisome, your doctor has to be the judge of that.

Let his doctor call you and see what they have to say.

Take care
