Peanuts?
0

12 posts in this topic

Does anyone have problems with peanuts as well? I have talked to celiacs who associate their problems with peanuts as part of celiac. It might just be that I have a peanut allergy as well but I just wondered if it could relate to celiac in any way.

I don't think peanut allergies have anything to do with celiac disease. They're common, but I don't think there's any correlation between peanut allergies and celiac disease.

I was told that we are sensitive to more things than other people so a peanut allergy wouldn't seem so odd.

There could be some odd connection or just that we are "weaker." If you get what I mean.

I don't know......some people asked about greater sensitivity to regular sicknesses (flu, stomach virus, some other thing) and a few people mentioned that we don't have a greater sensitivity to that......I don't know if this also applies to allergies, or not, but that's what I based my inference on.

I have a problem with peanuts but it is nothing to do with an actual allergy....

I am a very hard time digesting peanuts and they really hurt my system going through.... I don't have a problem with peanut butter though (the smooth kind)..

Have a great day!

I have a problem with peanuts - even food I think is safe (no peanuts) and then look back after the pain begins and realize it is made with Peanut Oil. I discovered this problem after I eliminated gluten from my diet. I have also since discovered soy and corn. I already was lactose/casein intollerant.

Anyway...fruit, veggies, and meat seem to be safe.

People can have reactions to foods suddenly. . .like with penuts. . .

I do think it's all related but that's just my opinion.

Also if you are having a spell of diarrhea nuts and beans can make it worse.

I definately can't do peanuts! I seem to have a gluten type reaction whenever I eat them. I feel like I'm allergic to everything! <_<

While I don't think there is a strict correlation (like the genes that cause celiac disease also cause peanut allergy), we may have more exposure to peanuts than some others, and food intolerances from an overactive immune system often go together, so it's not terribly surprising. It's one reason why I try fairly hard to avoid eating peanuts (or any other major allergen) on back-to-back days.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
