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 figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
