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?
