I am in the same boat as you all here and I am so frustrated and sick of being sick, I am going to stop eating anything with grain and potatoes for awhile, too. I still need to check out the scdiet and try that. It is so depressing sometimes, I know but we will get there. I want my life back too.
Starting today I'm actually going to go off of all grains for a while and see if things improve. I'm just so scared that the more I eat of the same thing, the more intolerances I'm going to get and pretty soon I won't be able to eat! Has there ever been a senario like that? I mean, then what? I'm really stressing myself out over here. I want my life back.

As for the rice topic, I tested allergic to rice when I did allergy tests a year ago. I just retested and am waiting for results. However, rice is one of the things I kept on eating anyway. Not because I LOVED it, but because I needed something to eat and had a very limited diet in general and lots of allergies. If you can go off it, you probably will feel better. I think all grains can be hard to digest for celiacs, especially when your body is still healing. I've been gluten-free for 2 years now and am finally starting to feel human again, and occasionally even get enthusiastic about eating something, lol. And I'm starting to eat more stuff. There IS light at the end of the tunnel, even if the tunnel is longer than you expected. ((hugs)))

My pet theory now is that we've got some bad gut bugs that feed on starches and having a food intolerances makes it hard for the good bugs to thrive and lets the bad bugs take over. I think once the gut heals up and the balance of "good and evil" is restored then we won't be responding so harshly to so many things.
Yeah...this is what I believe too. Its all about the balance...or should I say disruption of the balance.
My doctor seemed really pleased that I'm doing SCD....he doesnt want me adding new foods in yet though. Not only does the diet take away their food supply but not eating the foods we're reacting to takes some stress off the immune system and it can then focus more on the bad bugs.
