Low Oxalate Diet -need Advice
0

8 posts in this topic

I hope someone can speak to the topic of Oxalate withdrawl or symptoms of "dumping" oxalates. I'm in the process of switching my already gluten-free/CF/SF kids to a low oxalate diet. We are in week 2 and they have all kinds of strange things going on. Has anyone else had nausia, vomiting, headache, blotchy rash, urinary pain, irritabilty and crying. Wondering how long this phase lasts, just trying to prepare myself for the long haul.

Any thoughts or advice, greatly appreciated.

Tired Mom, Allison

I had a very hard time keeping my blood sugar levels from dropping on the low-oxalate diet, actually. hypoglycemia can cause those symptoms, but it can be something else. you can give them supplemental calcium citrate to help bind with the oxalates in their system as they're passed out, iirc. (you'll probably want to look that up more, though.)

These can be symptoms of toxic overload. My guess is that too many toxins are circulating through their bodies....more than what they are able to detox at once.

Epsom salt baths might help to reduce some of these symptoms.

Do they have problems with yeast overgrowth? There is a connection between yeast and oxalates...yeast are a source of oxalates and often need to be treated alongside the low oxalate diet. Its also possible that the release of toxins or "dumping" that occurs with this diet may have caused a flare-up of yeast....which could also cause those symptoms.

Either way it sounds to me like they are experiencing symptoms of detox...but maybe a little more than their bodies can handle.

Rachel, Thanks thats good advice. Some time ago my son had issues with yeast, prior to going gluten-free/CF, so your thinking is probably correct. I've started giving him activated charcoal and will try the epson salts baths. I had stopped these some time ago because they seemed to contribute to a loose bowel problem we were having but maybe the combination of the charcoal and baths will balance things out. I've among loads of other supplements that he has been taking have been giving him 300mg of Cal. Citrate prior to everymeal in hope this would help too. Poor kid, today he has blisters on his lips but in general is in a much better frame of mind. Perhaps we are past the worst of it.

To anyone with a child on the austisic spectrum. The low oxalate diet is worth trying, minus the withdrawals and toxic dumping. My son's language has improved by leaps and bounds!!!

Thanks again, Rachel

I have just been diagnosed with celiac and thought all would be will when I stopped eating wheat, barley, rye, etc. Now having problems with spinach and kale causing pain. Also having problems with yeast. I think celiac and all of the other conditions are related. I have to get rid of this yeast. Blood test to be done on Thursday. Anyone have any of the same problem?

Thanks hermpal

My son is autistic. Are there any websites that outline the diet? I want to research it more. I have friends who put their son on the low-oxalate diet and it helped him a lot. I've thought about trying it but hesitant because my son is so picky and this gluten free diet alone has been so tough!

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      I finally found out my gluten issues right after I left a very stressful job and could no longer function I was so ill. Symptoms had gone on for decades before, but it took a moment of stress to bring it to a head. I had anxiety gerd and the irregular heartbeat and I had a nasty bout of shingles when I was 20 which I've subsequently realised was due to my compromised immune system.  Shingles follows a particular nerve  around the body which is probably why Cristiana's dr suspected it. I had it from the front right of torso moving around to my back. The pain you describe is similar to how shingles felt before the blisters arrived, it starts with the skin feeling very tender as if it's been burnt. Maybe you're getting the forerunner to it and your body is successfully stopping it progressing? Ah, enough amateur doctoring from me! I hope you get the answers you need and are soon on the way to recovery. Sending you best wishes.
    • Amaranth and Quinoa: Pseudo-cereal Super Foods
      My latest obsession is creating new quinoa recipes, since my eight year old daughter absolutely loves it! Her favorite is warm quinoa with crumbled turkey sausage, broccoli, and lots of cumin. She also loves it with oil and balsamic vinegar. I like it cold with chopped veggies, garlic, and fresh squeezed lemon juice. View the full article

    • Mexican?
      Chipotle is one of my favorite places to eat, but it is a 50/50 chance of having a reaction due to cross-contamination.  Yes, they graciously make an effort to be gluten-free and will change gloves.  BUT, before that they used gloves and handled flour tortillas and then used same gloves to reach into the lettuce and cheese--voila--cross-contaminated food.  Changing gloves for you does not avoid this cross-contamination problem.  I started having reactions and my daughter advised me to avoid all the corn products there because of what she read on their website about allergens--so no more chips, or crispy taco shells, or corn.  I also avoid the green salsa and the pico de gallo--not that I am aware of cross contamination but she never eats that there and she has been successful at not having reactions, so that is what I do now and have had much success. Here is what I get:   burrito bowl with either white or brown cilantro lime rice, grilled veggies, black beans, barbacoa, red salsa, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and lettuce on top.  So GOOD! and so far, safe for me.
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle.   To be honest, to this day I am not sure if I actually had zoster sine herpete.  It was one of several suggestions by bewildered doctors.  What I can tell you is that I had to have MRIs  because one doctor thought I might have trapped nerve in my spine and I thought it would reveal something dreadful being the sort of person who gets weird nerve sensations - and it didn't reveal a thing.   It was unsettling to have symptoms like that for so long but what made me think my brother in law might have been right was because the worst of the symptoms lasted a year which I gather is pretty typical (but don't panic, because they can go a lot faster!)   My nutritionalist told me that if we get run down we are more prone to shingles so that is something to watch. Easy to say (and I'm speaking to myself here!) try not to spend too much time by yourself worrying about these things because anxiety never helps with nerve pain. I found that rest was very beneficial so I would recommend you try to get as much of that as you can.  Also, someone suggested a warm bath for 20 minutes with some Epsom salts.  That helped too. As I say, just one reason you might be getting this pain but I would continue with the investigations and perhaps mention the pain to your doctor and ask if it could be shingles.

      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.
