Is there such an thing to being intolerant to beans. And if so is there a wide group of foods that go hand in hand to beans that i would have to look out for.

Ok it looks like a bean intolerance is a leguem intolerance, anyone else have this.

Some people have an intolerance to any legumes. Others react to selected ones. For instance, I react to soy and noticed a similar reaction to something with lupin flour (seems to be Europe's up-and-coming addition to foods -- it was in an imported gluten-free pasta I tried). But I don't react to lentils, beans, peas, or peanuts that I can tell. Actually peanuts are sort of on my watch list right now ... sometimes one has a reaction and doesn't know what it is to, particularly if they have a number of intolerances & don't know if they even know of all of them yet.

My daughter is allergic to soy but can have other beans and peas. Her friend can not have any kind of legume whatever.

I'm sensitive to all legumes. Even string beans.

It's not too hard to avoid them--I do miss peanut butter, though.

I know i have felt terrible after the bush beans, then last night i was in pain again after i ate refried beans. So I am not sure if its to all legumes or just beans right now. Or if i am getting glutened by other things.

I am so afraid to eat anything, its almost 11 am and i havent ate anything. I have no idea what I should eat anymore.

What kind of Bush beans did you have? Some aren't gluten-free. http://www.bushbeans.com/products/productqa.php

What was in the refried beans besides beans?

I guess it comes down to whether you react to plain, unseasoned beans or whether something added to the beans is what is causing you problems. I can't offer any more assistance than that; you have to keep track & see.

I was thinking of making an pot of beans and see what happens, then if I am fine with the fresh beans, then I will know if it is an additive. Then I can look at the cans on both and see what it has in common.

The bush beans were the regular baked beans, so they are on the safe list.

Funny but I make my own homemade baked beans and I'm fine, but as I said bean flours kill my belly!

Dear confused~

I have been feeling kind of crummy lately so I decided to change my diet completley. I am only eating veggies, fruit, fresh meat and salad. I feel great now. This has only been a three day experiment but I am feel great. You could try this and see how you feel. It eliminates almost all possible food allergens. You might want to keep a food journal for a while and see if you can pin point what is making you feel crummy. Hope this help. I can totally sympathise with you.

    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
