Has Anyone Healed Some Of Their Intolerances?
0

28 posts in this topic

I (try to, slacked off this year) take Vitamin D supplements all winter at least, which definitely helps keep the sniffles away. B12 and other B vitamins are supposed to be good for combating depression and generally good for energy and mental health. My b12 tends to be a bit low, as does my iron levels, borderline anyway, so I do (try to remember to) take supplements.

 

Back on the intolerances front, I'm also encouraged by other people's success stories. I've been off dairy for 1 1/2 years, and now can tolerate small amounts of cheese on occasion, and small amounts of butter (ghee is better). Also, if I get into dairy my reaction isn't nearly as bad as gluten or soy, so not the end of the world. If I can get cheese back at least, even just goat/sheep, I'd be a very happy lady.

I also haven't touched whole quinoa since last summer, and need to be brave enough to give it another shot.

I think soy is permanently off the menu, however. My reaction is more immediate and often worse than if I get glutened. It's nasty (and makes me nasty too. no fun)

 

So there is hope! Yay!

I was just watching a youtube video yesterday about how normal serum blood tests are not good enough to test for b12. I see my family doctor on wednesday to get bloodwork done...what should i ask for to make sure about my b12?

veganhealth.org is a website by an RD, Jack Norris, who gives good reliable information. 

Someone told me they considered B12 to be an upper.  I never noticed that, but maybe if I took a lot, I would.

    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
