Dietician List Of Foods To Stay Away From
0

7 posts in this topic

I am newly diagnosed Celiac with a biopsy, so I am just now learning everything as to what I can and cannot eat. I met with my dietician the other day and he gave me a lot of handouts to read! A couple things that were on there, wondering if anyone knows the answer are.....is Metamucil okay to take (or store brand)? I have seen controversary on this, some say yes, some say no. Also, does anyone know what packaged suet is? We grind our own wild game and get suet from the store, but it is just trimmed from meat they are wrapping each day. I am looking forward to this site and help along the way.

I find that it is easier to know the ingredients that you can't have.

I'm not 100% sure about the suet, but some bird seed does have wheat, but you can find stuff without it. I'm not familiar with brands, though. I'm not sure if you get the kind with seed in it.

I see Metamucil is listed as a safe medication, but I got information from a website celiacsyndrome.com that it was on an unsafe list. I'm still confused.

Welcome to the board. When in doubt do without until you are asymptomatic at least. There is a factor about sensitivity levels and they can vary from person to person. There are other things that might be able to help that are for sure gluten-free. Flax seeds come to mind, they can be ground and added to smoothies or baked in stuff or even just sprinkled on cereal. If you want the Metamucil because of irregularity the diet itself may do away with the need. Get plenty of water and fruits and veggies, usually cooked are better tolerated at first. Things may be up and down for a bit at first, that is normal as there is a need for a lifestyle change for most of us. The gluten free world can be confusing at first but once you are feeling better the changes are so worth it.

I am doubtful about the accuracy of gluten free drug lists. At least one of them (referenced in a post above), http://www.glutenfreedrugs.com/, still has Xanax listed as gluten free - which is wrong.

    • healthy bread recipe?
      Ok thank you for the input! I am happy to hear what you think about her biopsy. Her GI is actually getting a second opinion from the celiac specialist. Our appointment is in a week. I have always thought she had celiac too. I asked them to do a biopsy years ago and they did but it was normal. She has more neurological symptoms than GI. She has headache and POTS. But she was reacting to all kinds of foods all of the sudden a few months ago. The low histamine diet really helped and she tolerates more foods now. I make almost everything from scratch, there is no gluten anywhere in the house and I don't use gums because she and I react to them. Breakfast is the hardest. Eggs are high histamine, she can't have oats, can't have fermented foods (yogurt), Breakfast is a nightmare. Many fruits and veggies are high histamine. She eats the ones she can tolerate. That's why I was asking about breads. What do you eat for breakfast? Are flax seeds safe or are they like oats? I can't find any flax seeds that say certified gluten free.
    • Diagnosis and Test Results
      I have been struggling with  symptoms for over a year and had lots of other testing done by my GI.  She did the celiac disease blood test a few weeks ago.  It came back positive for the two genetic markers but my antibodies were negative.  I received the results by phone from the (stupid) nurse who only relayed to me that "your tests showed that you are positive for Celiacs Disease.  you need to go on a gluten free diet and follow up in a few months".  I was so surprised by what she said it didn't even occur to me to call the doctor directly so I took it upon myself to research the disease and going on a strict  gluten free diet.  The first two weeks were horrible!  EVERYTHING I ate gave me diarrhea.  After two weeks, I started to feel better but anytime I inadvertently ate gluten by accident or was cross contaminated, I had horrible diarrhea again.  I spoke with my GI doctor today (I work at the hospital where she works) and she explained the blood results better to me.  (I still haven't expressed my anger about the nurse to her yet...but I will!) It doesn't make sense to me that I have the gene, have been experiencing IMO full blown symptoms (significant weight loss, malnourished, diarrhea, migraines, increased depression/anxiety, etc) but my antibody test was negative.  Could it be lab error?  I asked about an endoscopy and she said we could do it but it still may not confirm the disease.  I've also researched IBS and I don't seem to match up with those symptoms. Part of me wants to know if I have a gluten intolerance or the actual disease.  Either way I'll continue to follow the gluten-free diet but I think it's important to know if I have an autoimmune disease correct?  Or does it? Just looking for some guidance...
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Absolutely, absolutely, absolutely!!!!!!! Your doctor seems to think all her villi have to be completely wiped out for her to be celiac. Like cyclinglady says.... get the records & get a second opinion. BTW, I happen to agree with all the rest she said too but I just wanted to emphasize the second opinion part.  
    • Nothing left to eat
      I usually have sautéed yellow peppers, kale (or spinach) mushrooms as a base.  Then throw in some leftovers like baked sweet potato, or chicken chunks, add an egg and call it a breakfast!
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Lay's regular chips are gluten free.  You might have reacted to the super greasy chips or one of the other ingredients in them.

      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.
