Extremely Thirsty And Need To Pee A Lot After Eating Certain Carbs
0

7 posts in this topic

Why do I get so extremely thirsty after eating cassava, yams, plaintans but not parsnips, carrots or bananas?

It starts like 20 minutes after. I also need to urinate heavily. And I feel my muscles get filled with water and my body gets harder. It also effects my energy both up and in a strange way fatigue at the same time.

I'm very gluten intolerant and I'm thinking maybe cross reactivity or something. The effect is noticeable when the only carbs that I've have been eating has been parsnips etc for a longer time.

Thoughts?

Sweet potatoes do btw don't give an effect either. So what does sweet potatoes, parsnips, carrots, all fruits have in common but not cassava, yams and plaintans?

Diabetes can cause people to urinate frequently.  The body tries to get rid of the excess sugar in the blood stream.

My glucose levels have been tested ok. And I don't get the response to fruits and parsnips. They should have a lot of sugar.

It still sounds like a sugar problem to me.  From what I understand, your glucose levels can test okay until you have full-blown diabetes. 

 

Carbs turn to sugar in your body very quickly.  Also, it depends on what you're eating with the sugary foods.  For example, if you're eating cottage cheese with the fruit you may not see the same response because the protein helps balance it out.

Hm..

Could be a sugar problem. But I don't understand in what way if so.

I can can eat a full plate of parsnip chips and feel nothing. If I eat 1/20 of a plate of cassava/yam chips the reaction starts.

Do I have a problem with some type of sugars that are found in cassava etc but not parsnips/carrots etc? And what would they be, complex carbs or something like that?

Not sure about that one... but parsnips have less carbs, no sugar, and more fiber.  (at least when comparing Trader Joe's brand parsnip chips vs their sweet potato chips).

 

Could be a different food sensitivity altogether.

    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy.
