Problem With Vegetables/fruit
0

3 posts in this topic

I started on the Core Plan two weeks ago and have been successful. I am a little concerned though because I am noticing that possibly adding so many more fruits/veggies to my daily eating, I am not absorbing carrots and spinach. I had to stop spinach before since it was too rough on my system. But now, the carrots are noticeably "not absorbed" and I'm getting worried.

I have been gluten free for one year and feel so much better. I wanted to lose the extra weight gained since becoming more healthy, but this is making me wonder. Could the increase in these foods be too much for my stomach to process? Has anyone had this setback going on a diet?

I have had problems with red peppers and carrots before but that seemed to calm down and the peppers are not consistent. I have never cut out dairy because it didn't seem to bother me. What could I be missing? Like I said in my earlier post, I could not eat the FF foods because it was not agreeing with my stomach.

As I write this, my stomach is grumbling like it was before gluten free. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, even though I'm losing weight.

My celiac husband has the same situation. He cannot digest fruits and vegetables without abdominal pain, gas, bloating, maldigestion, indigestion, loose stool and "colorful" stool. He does not absorb the fruits and vegetables either (carrots, greens) and does not eat them due to the maldigestion.

He was 27 years misdiagnosed and now 4 years 100% gluten free. We thought that his ability to digest and absorb fruits and vegetables would return at a low level but unfortunately, did not.

By the way, what is an FF food?

I'm sorry to hear he is still having trouble. My absorption did improve but changed when I started WW. They were not FF foods, but I have been eating FF plain yogurt with fruit so I wonder if the FF food is not agreeing with me. I tried to use FF milk and splenda but that was not going to work at all. Couldn't stand the taste or the empty stomach feeling. I can't drink diet soda either so I have a feeling the "chemical" taste and substitutes are not for me. Someone else suggested digestive enzymes, has he tried those yet?

    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone! 
    • Welcome to the club you never wanted to join! The good thing about this club is that you don't have to take any pills, get radiation or chemo, or stick yourself with a needle every day. Things could be much worse than this. Does your brother live close? If so he could go to your same savvy doc. That would be great! Also what about your mom?
    • Hi There! I am Aly and I have suffered seriously for about 4 years with an huge increase in symptoms. I just recently started a gluten free diet a few months ago and I am sure I make mistakes because I feel it when I do. Your symptoms are a lot like mine and after many blood tests and visits to Neurologist still no answers. They diagnosed with relapse/remission MS for all these years and now say its not that. It's Auto-immune but no answers. They never tested me for Celiac's but A friend suggested I try going gluten free. Here are my symptoms below.  See if you relate or if anyone can relate. Heat Sensitivity, Nerves jumping in face and eyes, sometimes pain and redness around the skin of eyes, kinda pinkish.... occasional trimmers coupled with loss of coordination and balance along with in and out slurred speech, a other varying waves of relapse include Extreme fatigue and a huge fog comes over me. I can't sit up or stand without getting dizzy and feel like passing out. For a few days of the relapse It's just bed rest. The other parts are off and on having to use cane. Up and down, symptoms change but eventually the waves grow dim and I go back to being normal for a while. Things seem to get exacerbated when I do to much like go more than 4 -5 hours without taking a break and resting, lifting anything to heavy...so it seems to be straining things lead me to relapse. I used to be go go go...on the run but life has changed and I find that although I am eating gluten free and being careful not to relapse, I entered another a month ago and I am having to get IV steroid infusion tomorrow to break the cycle of this one. Just when I think I am beginning to feel better and go do something I go right back down. Its seems Gabapentin, Baclofen, and LOTS of rest only get me where I need to be again. It's frustrating. I wanted to share as well so that we can combine forces to get some answers! I have decided to go to a Allergy Clinic of sorts to try and get tested for environmental and food allergies. I am sorry you do not have funding for care. See if there is local clinic that can at least run some preliminary blood work on you. I am not sure if you can see one now in your state being 17 but there is usually a 211 or a 311 line in most cities that will give you the list of places you can go for free or on sliding scale. See if they will run any allergy panels as well. I have found that we have to be proactive in our own care because sometimes there is no simple answer and the more we talk one another with the research sometimes we do on own, we find out more than 4 years of going to a doctor could ever tell you. Thanks for all your input here. I look forward to being a member and helping where I can! I will send updates as I get them. Blessings to you all! Aly
