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.

    • I thought I would update you all.  I started to eat gluten shortly after this post.  I was miserable by the time I had my EGD.  The doctor gave a diagnosis after the EGD was completed, duodenitis, gastritis and hiatal hernia.  I had abnormal mucosa of the whole stomach and severe inflammation.  The biopsy results came back today, they stated early stages celiac disease.  I wonder what it would've shown if I wasn't on a gluten free diet for two years?  My doctor said he still wants me to come in for a talk, he doesn't really know if he should call it celiac disease since it's early stages....  WTH!  I've really got to find a doctor that specializes in Celiac Disease...    
    • thank you for the info, its very helpful to hear from someone else who has it and knows a lot about it. When you say I may be eliminating one problem vs 3, what would you think the other problems could be? It's frustrating because I even buy Uldis gluten-free bagels and what not and I still find myself reacting sometimes to that, I don't use butter but just gluten-free peanut butter, but like I said I don't know for sure if its from that or maybe something else. I have read on this site about a couple others that have had issues with uldis breads so could be that. but like you said I guess it can also just take awhile to get better. I read the other day that a lot of throwing up can put stress on your small intestine which can maybe cause your body to react to dairy, do you know anything about that or if that's true?
    • Thanks for the reply!  Yeah, I really should have gotten testing done before the elimination diet.  I had asked my previous doctor, but she didn't want to do it.  I was transitioning to a new insurance and couldn't get a doctor's appointment for awhile, so I thought I would just do the elimination diet.  After all, it might not have been gluten.  (<--that was my thought process...) Hindsight is 20/20.  I felt pretty good during those 3 weeks gluten free, and was not expecting how bad it would be when I added it back in.  Anyway, I found a new doctor and I think she would totally be willing to test me again 9 weeks out. I think she would also be willing to order the endoscopy if I brought her research and really pushed for it. Now that I know how good feeling good feels... I just can't see staying on gluten for another 9 weeks.  I honestly don't know how I would survive.  Even if it's not Celiac, and it's ONLY the wheat allergy... it's making my life absolutely miserable. Thanks again for the reply!  I think I'll go in Friday for the blood test and take it from there.
    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
