Just curious, what other intolerances are you having? If so, how long before you could (if you could) reintroduce a certain food?

- nightshades

- dairy, including alternates almond, rice milk, etc ( unless baked in something)

- eggs ( unless baked in something)

- lots of vegetables -especially green ones

- nuts, except for an occasional couple of almonds

-and I think my latest might be items iodine content and or salt.

Have not been able to reintroduce anything - going on 13 years now since diagnosed.

Will be curious what others have to say and any ideas/ suggestions. The refrig and pantry are the enemy I have to plow throgh when hunger hits.

Welcome klisja!

 

I removed everything except meat, fish and select fruits and vegies over four years post celiac diagnosis.  See my signature for the complete list.

 

This past November I finally made the connection to Histamine Intolerance (HIT) due to the damage in my small intestine (the enzymes that regulate histamine in the body are created in the mucosal lining of the small intestine.)  Since I have removed all histamine containing or histamine inducing foods my health has improved greatly.

 

So it has now been 6 months since the HIT discovery and I can now eat very small amounts of the lectin foods I removed nearly two years ago -- if I overdo it I pay dearly.  For now I'm taking it very slow and sticking to my safe foods, but am very hopeful I will get many healthful foods back.

 

Oh I did get Almonds back last Fall -- that was a wonderful day as they make a great snack and can be ground into so many yummy treats!

Corn. I temporarily got just corn starch back, but lost it again after a glutening.

 

White potatoes. I don't know if I had a problem with other nightshades because I never ate them. Just recently got white potatoes back. I may try tomato sauce sometime soon. I'd love to try eggplant but I have NEVER even seen one in any of the stores or farmers markets here! :blink:

 

Salicylates. If I go easy I can eat small amounts of sweet potato and also broccoli, but if I eat too much I will get sick. I wish SO much that I could have blueberries, but they are extremely high in sals. :(

 

Oh yeah, it's been two years gluten-free for me. I'm hoping to get corn starch back again someday so I can eat gluten-free bread again, but to be honest, corn cause so much pain I'm afraid to try again.

Thank you GottaSki :)

 

As sad as it is I am glad I am not alone :) Tests for gluten intolarance come back negative but I can't eat food with gluten in it, except rolled oats (not the quick cooking ones). Can't eat corn either or potato flour.

 

I can't eat fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds, almonds, spices (just salt) but I can eat dairy.

 

I am hoping someday I can add some fruits and veggies to my list, tired of eating rice and meats all the time :huh:

You can't eat any fruits or vegies?

 

I can't eat citrus, pineapple, banana, mango or many berries -- but i do okay with apples, pears and peaches.

 

I can't eat nightshades, spinach or pumpkin -- but can eat sweet potato, yams, all squash except pumpkin, brocolli, asparagus, cauliflower, etc.

 

Keep trying :)

Not at the moment no :unsure: My colon is really sensitive and I have OAS, I react to spices and fruits. I react to kiwi, citrus, berries, mango (I think), apples and I don't know about the rest. I get really sick from eating bananas, nightshades, barley and rye.

 Not even carrots, vegetables give me diarrhea. Maby when my colon is better :) I hope so!

Dairy. Even the butter hates me. Possibly salicylates. Possibly nightshades, though potato doesn't SEEM to bother me.

I'm interested to know when you all say you are intolerant...

What symptoms do you get???

Just that I have continuing loose bowels (not really diarrhea so much i think) ... all I eat is fruit and veg... Would you guys cut something out if it gave you loose bowels???

Scary thought for me, I'd basically have bugger all left to eat.

My issue has always been the opposite -- can't go at all -- sometimes for over a week

 

But when I talk of intolerances - my symptoms are all over the place depending on which food -- from mild itching to brain fog to full anaphylactic reaction -- for me -- my reactions became much stronger after I had been gluten-free for some time.  Now it seems I can tolerate small portions of some things -- I've had a rough week so will not be trialing anything for at least a week, probably two.

My strongest symptom is psoriasis. All of these (corn, soy, and salicylates) make it flare badly. When I can avoid them (and gluten of course) for a long time, it completely heals. I get "loose" from all of them, but gluten seems to be the only thing that gives me "Get out of the way! Emergency!" D.

It depends on what I eat:

swelling of the lips (that is mostly by fruit, herbs, peppercorns): loose bowel with mucus and just feeling uncomfortable (vegetables, rye, barley, bananas), white wheat products get me really tired and stupid;  tingling feeling all over (corn, rose pepper). nose running - not sure, urticaria - not sure, headace (soy sauce)

 

Maby I should look into salicylate sensitivity, the list looks alot like mine and maby I can add the ones that are not on the list :)

Thanks Lisa. My life would be so much easier if I knew what was normal (poop wise!) ugh!

So I guess your reactions depend on the food and perhaps the quantity?? Do some of your reactions happen a day or two after... Like rashes and itching for example?

Sorry you've had a rough week, hope you feel better soon... Funny hey that these reactions get worse after being gluten free... You'd think the opposite would be the case! Hugs

    • Hi Kasia2016, Yes, celiac disease symptoms can vary widely.  Some people have no symptoms, we call that silent celiac.  Other have difficulty walking (gluten ataxia), skin rashes (dermatitis herpetiformis), and thyroid disease (Hashimoto's thyroiditis).  The list goes on and on.  GI symptoms can vary widely too, from mild symptoms at times to severe symptoms.
    • Hi egs1707, Welcome to the forum! Irene is right, you should not be gluten-free until all testing is completed.  The celiac disease tests are checking for immune system reactions and damage, and when you go gluten-free that starts to decline.  So the tests may not show the true immune reaction that is going on or the normal damage.  They may not show any damage in fact and you could get a false negative diagnosis.  You body starts healing and out the window go the test results.  Your doctor gets an "F" grade if they told you to go gluten-free now. But you aren't alone in having a doctor who doesn't understand the celiac disease testing process.  Many of them are woefully ignorant of proper testing for celiac disease.  That why the current estimate is somewhere in the range of 85% of celiacs in the USA are undiagnosed.  It doesn't help when doctors screw up the testing themselves.  Or refuse to test people.  Which is also far too common. I was vegetarian for 5 years.  I am not anymore and don't recommend it.  It is hard enough living gluten-free and finding safe food to eat and adequate nutrition for healing a damaged body.  I used to eat a lot of soy products when I Was vegetarian, but now soy makes me physically sick.  We can sometimes develop reactions to foods we eat a lot of while our guts are inflamed IMHO.  Soy is not a healthy food anyway from my reading. I can't do dairy now but may people who start out lactose intolerant end up being able to eat dairy after they have recovered. The best advice I can give is to avoid as much processed food as you can, and eat mostly whole foods you cook yourself at home.  When you do cook, cook big, and freeze the leftovers.  That way you can quickly take a small portion of food out of the freezer and reheat it.  Being celiac it is more important to learn how to cook.  Unless you are wealthy all those gluten-free processed foods add up quick.  Plus gluten-free processed foods often are lacking in fiber and vitamins. You'll want to watch out for vitamin deficiencies also.  Since celiac disease damages the villi in the small intestine, the vitamins and minerals etc are not digested and absorbed well.  So celiacs can be low on vitamin D, calcium,  and one other one I forget.  Vitamin B-12 may be low also ( it is important for nerve health).  Then there are some vitamins that vegetarians tend to have problems getting enough of also to consider. Adjusting to living with celiac disease means adjusting to a new diet and some lifestyle changes.  There's lots of us that make that change every year though, it's not impossible.  You will most likely end up eating better, more nutritious food than many of your peers.  And you will avoid a pletora of additional health concerns that can come along with untreated celiac disease. Learning to cook can be an adventure and you may enjoy it once you start.  you may find your taste in foods changes once you have been gluten-free for a while too. Recovery from celiac disease can take some months.  The immune system is very serious about protecting us and doesn't give up quickly.  Also it always remembers so it will react to even small amounts of gluten.  I live with gluten eaters at home and I do fine.  I just am careful about rinsing dishes off and so forth before using them. There is a Newbie 101 thread at the top of the coping with forum subsection.  It may provide some helpful info.  
    • That's great to hear you are feeling better Nightsky.  I really think when our GI systems are in distress already that it doesn't take much to set off symptoms.  Once I eliminated the other foods that cause me symptoms that helped a lot too.  And added some extra vitamin D to my diet and selenium. Many of us have developed reactions to other foods besides gluten and need to avoid them to keep symptoms at bay.  For me nightshades, carrots, soy, dairy, and celery all cause symptoms.  It took me awhile to figure out all those food culprits, but it made a big difference getting them out of my diet. But we are all individuals, and our bodies react individually.  So you may or may not have additional food intolerances develop. Celiac is one of those life journey things and we learn as we go.  Just keep the bottle of aspirin handy!
    • Pastry chain goes gluten-free, using mangoes ... But gluten is also believed to cause celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, and wheat allergy, ... View the full article
    • I know that Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce  in the US is gluten free, I also know that in Canada it is NOT. This is a very reliable site: http://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/vinegar/ But it is in the US. I'm agast that the Irish Celiac Society says malt vinegar is gluten free.  I wouldn't use it. No sense taking any chance at all.
