Reintroduced Foods And Still Intolerant?
0

5 posts in this topic

I do have leaky gut and tested intolerant to 55+ foods. About six weeks ago, I decided to start reintroducing a few. I hadn't had egg yolks or bananas in five months and they were a no go. I hadn't had dairy in over a year and OUCH! It is WORSE than before!

Does this mean I should scratch these off the list forever? I have stopped reintroducing foods. It's not worth it to feel lousy.

Anyone have success in reintroducing foods that you were not successful reintroducing previously? If so, how long did you wait?

No. I was diagnosed with a few food allergies and lots of inhalant ones many years ago. I avoided these for a few years. Later, I was able to add eggs back into my diet, but only baked in cookies, etc. Thinking that I have been feeling pretty darn good these last few weeks (aside from a hyperthyroid), I ate an egg for the first time in 20 years! I soft boiled it. Bad choice. I am still reacting to it and it has been five days. I can say that early strict avoidance has calmed down my reactions. Perhaps I should not have not tested eggs during the height of pollen season! Will try again next winter.

I know someone who is allergic to a certain fish but only during the springtime when a particular pollen is out. That is so random! I am beginning to believe that stress can cause the body to be more reactive. At least, that's what I'm telling myself ;). I am not going to reintroduce intolerant foods until my life conditions ease up. I hope it's that simple.

Failed every challenge these past three years -- but am starting to get some things back in moderation:

 

fresh cheeses, butter, cream, corn and rice thus far

 

-- of course this is since I started with mast cell medications (histamine and mast cell blockers), so I'm not the best example.

Yum! That's good to know. Whenever I start reading those threads, I mentally check out. I'm assuming if I have these issues, they will make themselves obvious... Maybe on a strong day, I'll do some light reading!

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
    • AdrienJ, thank you so much! I dream of traveling more one day. I have spondylitis too. I'm so glad that a gluten free and casein free diet is helping you feel your best!
    • 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!
