Concern Over Red Meat
0

6 posts in this topic

Lately Ive been eating red meat a few times a week because I thought that it would help boost my iron levels. Everytime I went out the a good steakhouse I would feel nauseous for days. I never connected the nausea to the red meat until last week when I went to sullivans and had their cowboy ribeye medium rare. OMG. I was nauseous and had the chills for 3 days.

Ive been having this reaction to red meat so Im going to stop eating it, but I wanted to find out if anyone else had this experience. I dont know if its food poisoning, or an allergic reaction, or what. Maybe its just really hard to digest.

Thoughts?

Hi,

I don't know--I've heard that about 1/4 of the time, indigestion is felt as nausea and not heartburn/reflux. Maybe you're not digesting it well? Have you tried eating it at home, prepared with no seasonings except salt?

I ate no red meat, and chicken only a few times a week for years. For the last couple of years now, since I became severly anemic, I've gone back to red meat and have had no problem. I almost never eat out, though.

Anyway, I hope you get it figured out :)

In general, red meat is hard to digest, esp. if you've been off of it for awhile. However, you shouldn't 'force' yourself to have it strictly for the iron content:

Nuts, seeds, molasses, dried fruit, potatos, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, rice, tofu, soybeans, legumes are all high in iron, as well as fortified foods (like cereal), and seaweed (which is extremely high). most of those are equivalent or higher than a steak. and you'd probably eat larger servings of these than a steak in a day.

Do you react to red meat when you eat it at home? I checked this out because I have recently realized I do not do well with beef. I had eaten it most of the summer when my son was here but went back to my usual fish, beans, pork and chicken after he left. I had ground beef for the first time in a couple months last week and ended up in the bathroom for the entire day afterwards. I had no gluten symptoms just an upset and uncomfortable tummy. I'll avoid it from now on.

steaks in restaurants often times are marinated in seasonings that contain gluten, or the grill could be contaminated... so maybe that could be the issue, but if it's still happening at home...

so, if you are still having reactions from plain unseasoned red meat at home, you may just be having a hard time digesting it.

You can take digestive enzymes to help with the digestion. If you weren't eating it often, you may not have all the enzymes you need to digest it.

I only eat out at places that have a gluten-free menu ... so it could be the way it's prepared as has already been mentioned.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
