Different Foods... Different Symptoms
0

10 posts in this topic

Hi! I'm new here and don't know if this is the right place to post, but does anyone else notice that some foods and drinks bother you more than others? Certain foods will leave me cramping and hurting for days, but some foods just make me feel a little tired? Also, does anyone have some problems with small white bumps on their arms after being glutened? My doctor says it's due to a Vitamin A deficiancy. My mom and sister have the same problems but they aren't celiacs. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, and welcome to this board. Yes, I do react quite differently to foods I am intolerant to. Which foods bother you? And what are your symptoms? If you tell us more, we will be able to hopefully help you better.

Welcome. I joined last Monday. I hope someone can give you pointers on the skin. My sister and my mom and I all have celiac and a variety of skin problems. Dermatologists can help but we usually got some type of cream. Cortisone, Meto creme, triamicinolone is working for me now. I have more than white bumps.

About food sensitivity. I am still unraveling my mystery. Read and post questions and you will learn a lot.

Before I was celiac I became vegetarian. 25 years ago.

I eliminated eggs, (except in bake goods and noodles) about 15 years ago.

I was diagnosed celiac 5 years ago. Stopped gluten. I got really sick for 2 years. I ended up not being able to keep anything down.

So, I figured out my stuff so far by elimination.

I began with white potato, margerine, salt, water. 3 months later I realized the iodine in the salt was a problem.

For 3 months I tried to eat a balanced gluten free vegetarian diet with out processed foods. I was still sick.

I eliminated dairy. I was still sick. I eliminated night shade vegetables. I was still sick. I eliminated salycilcates(wrong spelling). I am still sick. Adding enzymes, right now. I am also wondering about corn and soy.

Well welcome to a great group of folks who have a wealth of experience. Being a member for only one week has given me direction, hope, and the understanding that was so lacking. Thanks everyone!

I'd hate to tell your doctor he's wrong about the bumps.. but we've been discussing this on Delphi Avoiding Corn and several of us get it as a symptom of getting into something we're allergic to.. aka allergic reaction, much like breaking out with acne can be because of allergies. My bumps only went away when I switched laundry soaps. They come back now and then if I get into something, but they go away as soon as my system is clear of the allergen.

And yes some of my food intolerances just make me a little tired, while others (usually my IgE allergies) will mess me up for days.

Me too. I almost forgot that a bunch of the skin rashes cleared up when I eliminated soaps, lotions and cosmetics. The only thing I use now are baby oil, pantene/sauve shampoo a couple times a week, and dishwashing detergent.

I had 10 potato chips Sat. Sunday night I was covered with ???...mosquito bites? I have not been outside in over a week so it must be the potato.

Last Tuesday, I got glutened... BAD! Being new to this I thought, "Oh Chicken and Rice soup, I can have that." Not so, I found out about 1 hour later. Since then I have been sick and broken out on my arms with those little bumps. I switched back to baby shampoo and body wash and the rash has cleared up significantly. However, I am still feeling a little sluggish. Also, is Malt Extract Powder (barley) bad? ... It sounds that way, but a friend brought some chocolate back from Switzerland and I am dying to try it.

Yes, malt extract obviously has gluten, and you better give it away before you give into the temptation!

I guess you live and learn! Thanks for saving me from a tremendous amount of pain.

I know it seems like I am asking tons of stupid questions (at least I feel I am), but my doctor told me to try the diet and didn't really give me any information. This site has been a life saver!

I am amazed everyone seems to get glutened and realize a reaction.

I don't know that I have been glutened by mistake since I as diagnosed.

Since being diagnosed I have felt worse, not better.

I don't vomit as much, and the skin seems to be slowly improving but on the flip side I now have headaches fevers, sluggishness, mindfog, memory loss, a mass in my stomach (no one seems to be alarmed about) and sometimes for no apparent reason I just hurt all over, lose my mind and lay down too limp to move. These episodes last 5 minutes to 15 hours.

I am hoping that I can really get on board taking enzymes. I realized last night that I was having trouble taking l-glutamine with .5 grams and my doctor wants me to take 40 grams. Any advice on how to get from 1 gm to 40 gms with the least amount of trouble?

    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      Looks like you got some good info from previous posters.   I don't understand why you and your doctor think that dairy contains gluten?  Lactose is a sugar not a protein like gluten.  I think you have some other issues.  
    • Question on posting
      I made an informative video for Celiac Awareness Month that demonstrates how small 20ppm is. Am I allowed to post a vimeo link? Thanks!
    • Celiac Awareness on NBC Nightly News
      http://www.nbcnews.com/nightly-news/video/celiac-disease-affecting-millions-of-americans-often-goes-undiagnosed-692131907739   This was on last Tuesday. So happy that a popular national news program is spreading good information!
    • The US Preventative Services Task Force needs our help - tell them why Celiac screening is important!
      I am so angry. I am all about universal screening for Celiac Disease. It is a tricky disease to diagnose. Your only symptoms may be joint pain, depression, or weak nails, which people will try to cure with medication or a good manicure. With roughly 80% of the Celiac population remaining undiagnosed, universal screening could save thousands of lives. This article popped up in my twitter feed regarding US physicians who are unsure whether universal screening would provide “health benefits” for those who exhibit no symptoms (http://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-celiac-screening-idUSKCN0XU2G6?utm_content=buffer3ed50&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer) First of all, no symptom is a symptom! There is something called “Silent Celiac Disease”, and I personally know several people who have it. They experience no outward symptoms caused by gluten consumption, but their insides are being torn apart. If they eat gluten, they may not feel it, but they are highly at risk for long term complications such as cancer, miscarriages, and osteoporosis, just to name a few. Also, let’s consider the non-GI related symptoms of Celiac. Doctors, how many times does someone walk into your office and say, “Gee, Doc, could you test me for Celiac Disease? I have (insert one of the following)”: asthma bladder infections dental problems dandruff high blood pressure headaches blurred vision leg cramps back pain pale skin brittle nails acne bad bread mood swings ADD Anxiety Depression a short temper night terrors panic attacks irrational anger sinus pressure Those are just a few of the symptoms that people don’t think to associate with Celiac Disease, and I’m sure that you, Mr. Doctor, will not test someone with Celiac Disease if they have dandruff. This is why so many people are undiagnosed! People do not recognize the symptoms and doctors won’t think to give them a blood test. This is why I always say – You cannot know that you do not have Celiac Disease until you get tested. “One concern with widespread screening is that biopsies aren’t risk-free and may confirm cases of celiac disease that weren’t causing problems for patients and didn’t necessarily require treatment, Krist noted.” WHAT?????? First of all, most Celiac screening starts with a gene test or a blood test. That aside, ALL confirmed cases of Celiac Disease require treatment!! Untreated Celiac Disease can cause many problems in the future. “Guidelines for gastroenterologists recommend celiac screening for people with a close relative with celiac and for diabetics who are at increased risk for the disease, Murray said by email.” I was the first person in my family to be diagnosed. 80% of Celiacs don’t know they have it. I would have never been diagnosed if my gastroenterologist said, “Well you don’t have diabetes and no one in your family has it….” No one in my family had heard about Celiac Disease, let alone had been tested for it. And we have all of the tradition GI symptoms. This is not a rare disease. About 1% of the population has Celiac Disease. Take a look at your facebook friends list – have 500 friends? Odds are that you know four or five friends with Celiac. MAYBE one of them will be diagnosed. Maybe. The others will be suffering in silence. “The USPSTF, a government-backed independent organization that reviews medical evidence, issues recommendations that are closely watched by doctors and insurers. This is the first time the USPSTF has weighed in on screening for celiac disease, and the task force will accept public comments until May 30 before releasing final guidelines.” This brought me to the USPSTF website. In their draft, here is what is listed as “Potential Harms” of screening in asymptomatic populations. I’ve included my response: False positive – there are rarely false positives Unnecessary serologic tests and biopsies – umm…only do a biopsy if you have a positive blood test. And what’s so bad about a blood test? Anxiety of complications from testing – I had much more anxiety in my pre-Celiac days, not knowing if I would poop my pants at work. “Some patients with positive serology who do not undergo histologic confirmation may embark on efforts to avoid dietary gluten, which can increase costs and burdens and may result in decreased quality of life” “– I’m glad that you think my life is so terrible. “Limited evidence from long-term followup studies have shown that some persons with biopsy-confirmed celiac disease may never develop symptoms or complications” – I’m not going to risk getting cancer, are you??? The USPSTF is taking public responses to their draft, all of which must be submitted by May 30th. I highly urge you to write in and explain why universal screening is important. My Celiac diagnosis saved my life. If universal screening can do the same for a huge portion of the population – I am all for it. This could be the most important thing you do for Celiac Awareness Month. Read the draft and write to the USPSTF here. http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Document/draft-recommendation-statement150/celiac-disease-screening

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
