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

    • I just now saw the second reply and I see what you mean. Again, the issue is that I may have to go with the gluten until close to the end of the year.

      However, an idea did just come to mind, and that is, can my primary care doctor do such a test? I had normal blood work done, but they didn't really say anything about testing for celiacs. I can get an appointment with my primary care doctor much sooner than a GI.

      When I was talking to my PCP last, I asked her what I should expect as far as testing goes or what she may have been concerned about. Her reply was about a HIDA scan for the gallbladder but also any test needed in case of IBS or Celiacs. Just the way she threw that in there like an after thought and left me hanging kinda had me worried.
    • I am not a doctor that's for sure.  So, I can't even answer your questions.  If you know you have pre-diabetes, you probably are working with a doctor.  Can you email them and ask for a celiac blood panel?   You can work on the weight loss and diabetes -- that you can handle yourself now and take action.  I have diabetes and my glucose readings are fairly normal now without medication and I'm thin.  Being overweight does not cause diabetes.  It's either autoimmune (type 1) or you become insulin resistant (type 2).  You can cut out all sugar and  processed stuff ASAP to help take action and start walking 10,000 steps (helps with the insulin resistance).    But the prediabetes is not going to kill you in the next year.  Whatever's in your gut is more likely going to get you much sooner.  But heck, I'm not a doctor and I don't even know you!    
    • Hi Steph, Yes, celiac disease can cause a myriad of symptoms and damage to the body,  Have you completed all celiac disease testing?  Usually they do the blood antibodies test first and then do an endoscopy.   You shouldn't go gluten-free until all testing is completed. Gluten is in many processed foods.  But if you stick with whole foods it is not hard to avoid gluten.  Getting used to eating gluten-free may take some time, as we need to adjust our preferences in diet.  But there are many foods that are naturally gluten-free.  Gluten is the protein found in wheat, rye and barley.  Some celiac disease organizations recommend avoiding oats also for the first 18 months of the gluten-free diet. Celiac disease impairs the ability of the body to absorb nutrients (including vitamins).  That can make it hard for the body to maintain itself and heal/repair damage.  So celiac can easily impact any part of the body. Sardines, tuna, mackeral and salmon have good amounts of vitamin D in them.  There are supplements available also, but not all are good.  You can check them at the labdoor website.  Nature Made is a good one and not expensive.  Internal damage from celiac can cause liver issues.  Those will probably clear up after being on the gluten-free diet a while. Recovery from celiac can take  months, and can be a rocky road.  The more you stick with whole foods and avoid cross-contamination issues the sooner you will heal IMHO. You may find that dairy causes problems for your digestion at first.  But it make stop being a problem after you have healed up some. welcome to the forum!
    • Will this be dangerous considering how long I have to wait for any testing? I may not even get a blood test in November but here is hoping. I just worry having to wait so long will cause serious issues, not to mention delay of weight loss which I need for the pre-diabetes. Do ulcers have a chance to cause yellow stools though? I suppose a stool test will be needed for that for any signs of blood in stools but visually it does not seem so. The biggest issue is not knowing what else could be causing the yellow stools as this would not be a diabetic or ulcer thing. And without negative signs on the gallbladder or liver, it is narrowing down the list.

      At the very least this is making me assume I can wait on a final scan of gallbladder and attempt blood tests and endoscopy if they recommend it.
    • The first step is getting a celiac blood panel.   Any medical doctor can order one.  Live near Chicago?  They are do free screenings this month (check their website).  The cost is less than $400 for the complete panel.  If you get a positive on any one of them, then you should be referred to a GI for an endoscopy to obtain intestinal biopsies.   Here's more information from a reliable source and not just some lady on the internet: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Having had my gallbladder removed (probably ruined from undiagnosed celiac disease, but I don't know that for sure), I would recommend a HIDA scan.  I have no idea how expensive that one is.  It's a nuclear test that checks for functionality.  Basically, is your gallbladder squeezing bile into your small intestines when those fries or bacon come down the tube.  Mine happened to actually be rotting (infected).  ER suspected appendicitis, but it was a rotten gallbladder.  I never had any stones (that's what the CT or the ultrasound can find).  I am sorry that you are ill.  Keep eating gluten until all testing is complete.  This is important.  Go gluten free now?  Here's why you shouldn't..... http://theceliacmd.com/2013/04/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet/
