Rice Allergy
0

9 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I recently (yesterday) was diagnosed via a prick test that I have allergies to rice, walnuts, pork and grapefruit. I have already am pork, walnut, and grapefruit free, but I am having trouble finding gluten free and rice free foods. Does anyone know any good gluten and rice free recipes? or products. I am also trying to limit corn. And to top it all off I am a college student without a job, so would it just be a good idea to cut out all grains? like the paleo diet? (I haven't done much research on this so I may be thinking of something else)

Thanks

AP

I found it easiest to get on a paleo kind of diet when I started having trouble with other grains, especially rice - it's just in nearly everything, as I'm sure you've seen.  

 

Just starting off, for recipes - this gal had some nice recipes when I was looking for things to make:

Why did you have testing?  Unless you've had a reaction it isn't recommended to test for things.  What kinds of reactions were you having that you had testing done?

If I were you, I would use potatoes for a sub. You can prick them and cook in the microwave.

Thank you guys,

StephanieL -- I got the allergy testing done because I started having more digestive issues than before I went gluten free. I had been eliminating out foods that I thought were bothering me, and was down to almost nothing. I'm not 100% certain but rice seems to cause me heartburn and bloating type reaction. The allergist tested me for all the items that I had eliminated as well as common food allergies in my family (pork, grapefruit). My Dr recommends me going 2 weeks without and then testing it too see the exact reaction, which I am going to do.

You can eat a natural diet. Eat fresh meats and fresh veggies. It's simple and as long as you wash your veggies you should be fine I also rinse my meats. Other than another starch you should be fine. You can use quinoa? I'm sure Paleo would be good but If you don't have to give up all the grains why would you? Seems easier to have a few more options.

The reactions you are speaking of (GI), if those are your symptoms it doesn't sound like an IgE allergy which is what those tests are looking for.  Those tests are about inaccurate at best (about 50% of the positives are false positives).

 

A food log really would be your best bet.  Very detailed including every ingredient and times you are things and any GI issues that occur.  Intolerances are best found via a really detailed listing of what, when and how they make you feel!

 

We try veggie "noodles" like zucchini and spaghetti squash. i agree that looking into paleo recipes would be a great place to start.  You have to watch for walnuts thought.  Also if you are actually allergic to any of the above mentioned things, you need epi pens!  Also if your walnut issue is an allergy and you eat other nuts there is a high likelihood of cross contamination unless you know the source of the nuts is free of walnuts in the facility.

Is it true that rice causes bloating and water retention? ive been having this problem as long as i remember, and only recently i realised that i did not see any of these symptoms when i was travelling and was off rice for abt 2 weeks.

No, not for most people. But anyone, Celiac or not, could have problems with rice or a different food. Also, different types of rice seem to work better for some people.

    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
    • What a gross title–it bothers me and I wrote it! It wasn't my idea originally. The research paper the data came from was entitled, "Experimental hookworm infection and gluten microchallenge promote tolerance in celiac disease" published recently in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

    • katesyl.........this is an older topic so the OP most likely won't answer.  I can, however, offer a piece of advice for you. Just going gluten free will probably not drive your inflammation markers down into normal.  It does depend on how high they were to begin with but with all autoimmune diseases, there will be inflammation going on forever.  Get used to wonky blood work because most of us will have that issue. I have 4 autoimmune diseases in total and, although I have driven certain inflammatory markers way down, my recent sed rate number was elevated.  The normal is supposed to be 30 and under in a woman my age but mine is 50.  With 4 AI diseases, I doubt it will ever be normal and I don't let it bother me. I am not willing to take major meds at all and use more natural anti-inflammatory supplements.  You can do whatever you feel comfortable with in regards to treatment but don't expect normal numbers with Celiac Disease. Inflammation will improve but normal?  Most people never get there completely.
    • My daughter's PCP did not go against anything, she offered to do the biopsy - I was the one opposed to it. My DD, who was 10 at the time had just spent 3 weeks in the hospital, very sick with a ruptured appendix, then had 2 surgeries a few months after. I didn't see the need to put her through anything else with her numbers so high and all the classic symptoms. Apparently, in some other countries, if your numbers are all high, they forego biopsy. Anyway, I was really asking about myself and whether I should push for add'l testing. I am still new this this and trying to get up-to-date and wasn't sure if my PCP should conduct other blood tests before I go completely gluten-free. I have been somewhat gluten-free, but not entirely. I have no problem going gluten-free, but want to make sure that I am doing it for the right reasons. I wasn't sure if the Gliadin Abs IgA was sufficient to point to Celiac and possibly doing a biopsy for me. Or if additional blood test would make more sense.   Thanks!!
    • I would like to know if you have found out the source of your inflammation yet. I'm gluten free three years but my inflammation test was high.
