we just found out my 17 year old has additional intolerances to wheat, oats, and nuts. She has had intolerances to cow's milk, goat's milk, soy, potatoes since she was five. She has not been feeling well for awhile but I attributed to her busy schedule and her dancing seven days a week. We just found out last week. Does any one have any suggestions what I could give her to fill her up. She is always hungry. Even after she eats. Will this eventually go away once she gets used to the new diet? I could really use some help. Thanks from a mother in need of helping a hungry kid. My daughter is only 102lbs. now and I don't want her to lose a lot of weight. Thanks.

i am confused. She has celiac? So she shouldn't be eating wheat and oats anyway right? How long has she been diagnosed?

Allison, as Merika says you don't mention anything about gluten.

Apart from all the gluten grains - I have allergy/intolerance to rice, nuts, seeds, chocolate, sucrose, potatoes and alcohol. This makes my diet very limited.

Like your daughter, I was hungry all the time for months. This has eased a little but I still eat every 3 hours. Not being able to eat rice or potatoes makes it very difficult to eat filling foods.

I strongly recommend you try millet, polenta and quinoa. The quinoa I especially like. I use all of these as my carbohydrate to replace rice and potatoes. Polenta and millet make really nice porridge.

Bananas are a Godsend to me. Too much fruit bothers me but I can eat bananas till they are coming out my ears. :lol: Very easy on the digestion, quite filling and very versatile - you can do loads with them.

This is obviously all overwhelming to you right now but there are alternative foods. It is just going to take time to look for them and try out new things.

Someone on this board told me to change the way I think - e.g. start having food that I would normally have for supper as breakfast etc. One of the best advice tips I've ever had.

Chin up, this forum will help you!

She mentions "intolerances to wheat, oats......."

The thing that stumps me is; what's the difference between Celiac and 'intolerance'. I guess severity makes the difference... intolerance must be more like an allergy, without possible life threatening conditions.

I have many intolerances but no formal DX of celiac disease. I simply cannot eat these foods.

Either way, the hunger does go away but can come back. Also the food cravings appear to be normal based on what I have read and experienced. Right now, mine are olives and I have no idea why.

Anyway, you might want to check out EnjoyLife food products which are made without many of the common food allergens and they taste closer to normal. They have snack bars that are easy to take along in a pinch. Also, kinikicks (I know this is spelled wrong) has a lot of products too. I buy mine at a local health food store.

    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
    • A colonoscopy is not used to diagnose celiac disease.  An endoscopy is used to obtain biopsies in the small intestine.
