    1. Three decades and counting added a post in a topic Nail In The Quinoa Coffin   

      Thankyou for your encouragement It's good to know I'm not just weird - I'm pretty sure my mum thinks all my food sensitivities are psychological because every time I go there she says "what can't you eat now" & rolls her eyes. So I just take my food everywhere I go now & never eat out at a restaurant.

      I am fortunate that I can eat dairy foods because I am allergic to egg, sensitive to soy & I'm vegetarian so that narrows down your protein sources a bit !!

      Yes, I have allergic dermatitis, reactive arthritis, some sacroiliac spondylitis so I know what you mean about the "itis"es

      I am very glad to be able to talk other people that have had similar experiences (although I'm sorry for you that you have these dietary restrictions & health challenges )

      I have been coeliac for 33 years now and I think I have had IBS for at least 20 years (but manageable by diet) & my sensitivities to food seem to change regularly - some worsen, some improve - so it gets very confusing. Coeliacs disease is an immune-mediated disease and people with immune mediated diseases often develop other immune-mediated problems so it shouldn't be too surprising to us (though it is depressing ) that we develop other food allergies or food sensitivities or even immune mediated diseases as time goes on. I just keep searching for the right combination of foods in my diet & try not to feel too sorry for myself about what I can't eat - I'm not saying I always succeed on the not-feeling-sorry-for-myself but I pray a lot & try to remember the people in third world countries who have nothing to eat
      I have given up on trying any grains of any kind (I know quinoa is officially a seed but I react the same way to it as I do to grains) to be honest because they all make me unwell and it's just not worth it.
      I have been on a low carb diet for the last 6 months & I have felt better than I have felt for at least 10 years - my irritable bowel has virtually disappeared (unless I eat the things I know I shouldn't like certain fruits or egg), I can eat foods I couldn't eat before, I have improved energy levels (though not wonderful), I no longer suffer from chronic cystitis & I am less depressed. Has anyone else had positive experiences with a low-carb diet ?
      Sorry about the long post but this is the first coeliac forum or group I have ever been a member of so I have 33 years to get off my chest
