8 posts in this topic

Hi,

I've recently been diagnosed Celiac. I have other auto immune and diabetic issues as well. My Dr. told me I have to be both Amylose AND Gluten free. I'm looking for help and information.

Thanks,

Karen

Just wanted to say welcome! I'm not Amylose free, but maybe if I bump this up someone else will see it. Please stick around and feel free to ask lots of questions.

My doctor recently suggested I read several books by Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker (Desperation Medicine, Mold Warriors, & Lose the Weight You Hate). As a result, I have been following a amylose-free, gluten-free diet. On the gluten-free side, I can not have cereals, rice, potatoes, pasta nor bread. On the amylose-free side, I can not have bananas, foods enriched with maltodextrins or corn syrup, foods from wheat, rice, rye, barley or oats nor can I have root vegetables (except garlic & onions). Some examples of vegetables that grow underground are: potatoes, carrots, radishes, peanuts, etc. All other fruit (except bananas) is allowed according to Dr. Shoemaker.

Frito-Lay makes many gluten-free products (including Fritos and Tostitos). Baked Tostitos are a healthier alternative to the regular ones. For a list of all the gluten-free products by Frito-Lay, go to www.fritolay.com and click on "for your health" for a complete list.

Obviously I am not a doctor. I am just passing on the information I have been following based on the books mentioned above.

I'm not sure what the science behind the amylose free is. What I have read is that most vegetables are a combination of amylose and amylopectin, and it is the latter that is hard to digest.

The specific carbohydrate diet (Breaking the Vicious Cycle) discusses this issue. The SCD approach eliminates sugars that have to be broken down, grains, vegetables like potatos, yams, taro, but allows most other vegetables, allows fruits, nuts, proteins, and dairy that is totally lactose free. The eliminated vegetables are carefully considered in terms of their amylose to amylopectin ratio.

Celiac damages the villi with the enzymes to digest carbs are produced (at least the final steps of digestion).

    • Why would your PCP go against the advice of leading celiac researchers and the American and British GI Associations?  The endoscopy/biopsy is still the gold standard for diagnosing celiac disease.     I understand your daughter's  situation, but I would get a second opinion from a GI before going gluten free.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://gut.bmj.com/content/early/2014/06/10/gutjnl-2013-306578.long#T2 http://www.worldgastroenterology.org/guidelines/global-guidelines/celiac-disease/celiac-disease-english  
    • It might not be Celiac, if your tests are negative.  Have you been to a doctor and been tested for diabetes or thyroid issues lately?  What are your parents doing about your issues?  Some things like acne and shin splints might be explained by age or activity, but passing out and depression need to be addressed.
    • I will visit  Johannesburg  international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • I will visit Beijing international airport, is there any gluten free food available? The so called customer service office did not answer my question! So I am taking it to the forum. If you know of any restaurants inside the airport please let me know.  
    • Instead of going to my doctor I went to theranos to get a celiac blood test done. Doctors never seem to want to hear about you diagnosing yourself so I decided against going to the doctor . So my symptoms are/were being bloated after eating, stomach pain, constipation, also diahrea (my poop is always green ik tmi), bad anxiety, depression, irritability, insomnia and anger after consuming a big meal of gluten, I also have a rash on my right leg below my butt I don't think it's dh tho, I'm always thirsty (like I can't get enough water), dizzy spells (fainting and blacking out), my left side of my face tingles (could do with anxiety), my face also feels hot after consuming gluten, I have acne, hip pain and shin inflammation, back pain, and dandruff. My theranos results came back negative with everything ranging from 0-3 so it was super low. I had the celiac panal done. Well anyways I thought maybe it's wrong and went off gluten anyways. This is my 6 day gluten free and my symptoms haven't resolved at all really. My bloating has lessened a tiny bit but I still get bloated after every meal. And im constipated all the time. My poop stopped being green though. I'm not eating dairy right now either. I'm also having worse anxiety and am still depressed. If Im gluten sensitive shouldn't I be feeling better by now? I also live in a house with gluten eating people sense im only 15 but I try hard not to cross contaminate. I eat lots of veggies  (Kale and salads) and lots of nuts and beans and indulge salmon and tuna a few times a week and eat quinoa every morning for breakfast. I'm scared I'm not gluten sensitive and I don't know what to do.
