celiac disease Against Nuts And Vitamin D ?
0

7 posts in this topic

:( Can someone explain how nuts amd vitamin D deficiency tend to occur in people with Celiac Disease? I don't really know why,but I had a problem first with peanuts ,then ALL nuts,now I can eat a few Cashews,Walnuts and Almonds again,but for a long time they all made me kinda sick.

:rolleyes: Personally I don't worry about trace amounts of wheat-I just don't knowingly eat big slabs of wheat.

;) Vitamin D also made me sick for about I year and I wouldn't take it. But lately I've felt the need for it again so I take a MultiVitamin with Minerals(centrum) and a 400 IU of vitamin D,because my bones feel kinda soft , like I'm made out of cartilage. So far I haven't felt sick from the Nuts or Vitamin D but ,berfore they made me ill and I haven't had any for a year !

Nuts are VERY high in fat and Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin. Active Celiac can hinder the absorption of fats and certain vitamins. It could have easily made you feel sick to eat them. You know if you do have true Celiac, not worrying about little bits of gluten/wheat here and there could really be harming you.

I agree with Shay that fat absorption could be an issue but another problem with nuts is that they often carry molds - especially shelled ones and peanuts can be the worst offenders.

If Candida is an issue for you then you would likely get a reaction to the nuts. By far the majority with Celiac/Gluten Intolerance seem to have issues with Candida and other rogue bacteria due to gut dysbiosis.

Many things can put the flora out of balance but one of the most common culprits seems to be antibiotics which destroy the good guys along with the bad - the good bacteria is there to protect the gut from pathogens and support the immune system - without them we are open to infestation from anything.

It may have been something with the vitamin D you were taking that was the problem. Many of the proprietary brands contain other substances, any one of which could have been problematic - they might have even contained gluten in some obscure form. Have you tried getting your vitamin D through cod liver oil to see if it makes any difference?

So many with gluten intolerance are also intolerant of other foods. Quite a few of us have been following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), which is a healing diet, and have been getting good results. Because it removes the foods that feed the rogue bacteria, yeasts and/or parasites and concentrates on the replenishment of the good flora and the consumption of good wholesome foods that help the healing process, it helps the gut, and the body, to heal properly.

Many gluten-free foods are typically high in the types of carbs that can actually keep the damage going - not necessarily the villi that can be seen through biopsy but deep down in the gut wall where leaky gut may be allowing molecules through into the bloodstream that shouldn't be there, triggering all sorts of reactions anywhere in the body.

There is an SCD thread in the 'Other Food Intolerances' section if you are interested.

Since I've been gluten free (almost 3 years), roasted nuts now make me sick... I don't understand it, because this never happened before.

I just cannot eat roasted nuts... I can eat peanut butter, no problem. I can eat all the nuts I want straight from the shell or fresh-shelled nuts in a big bag meant for recipes, baking, etc. But one handful of any roasted nuts or peanuts and I'm sick for a while.

Weird. I don't understand it.

Roasted nuts are "rancid". The oils in nuts go "rancid" very quickly even without heat. But roasting accelerates that process. Now that you dont have gluten mucking up your system, your body lets you know that they are toxic.

Thanks ShayFL, for the greasy nut info. I'm not an idiot,and I know nuts are oily,but after I came down with this celiac disease around the age of 28 every thing changed ;suddenly I couldn't eat nuts,or squash, yams, or soy. I even had a few months when I couldn't drink milk,but it went away after two bottles of Lactaid ,and now I drink milk often. I figured it might be nut protein,since many people seemingly suddenly couldn't eat peanuts and tree nuts. If I ever become wealthy I'll try and figure out why I can't eat something-nothing is better than proof.I'd get one of those food tests where they test for up to 500 kinds of foods that most people and some Celiacs have a reaction to.

Even regular rice makes me kinda sick too-I just don't don't eat it all the time. I'm mainly meat and vegetables.

(Also nuts are like a side accessory-I never ate tons of them just a few occassionally.)

This condition certainly makes you special. You can't have it and do what everybody else does or wants .You have to do what you need, when you need to, and it helps to be financially and physically independent-no slave here. I feel like an exotic bird from a far-away place that has special dietary needs-or else it'll die. Only a very kind and wealthy person would care for a pet like this.

Or maybe everyone just has to be tolerant and yield to some of the Celiacs' needs.

OH,BY THE WAY .HOW IS IT THAT THE FAT IN MEAT AND EGGS DOES NOT SICKEN ME ? MAYBE ANIMAL FAT IS A DIFFERENT KIND OF FAT FROM THE KIND IN NUTS OR VEGETABLE FATS. I'M GOOD WITH SOYBEAN OIL TOO,ALTHOUGH FOR A WHILE IT MADE ME SICK,THEN I SWITCHED TO CANOLA OIL ,NOW THAT MAKES ME SICK AND I'M BACK ON SOYBEAN OIL.

    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Welcome, @iwillmoveamountain! Of course you are not wrong to pursue getting testing for celiac. My advice is to drop that doctor and find a new one, preferably one who is celiac savvy, and who will listen to you and test you for the disease.  
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Hi! I was hoping some of you might be able to tell me if my symptoms seem like good reason to be tested for celiac disease... I actually asked my doctor to test me (years ago) and she told me she would not test me because the test is expensive... However, I am now desperate to figure out how to manage my health issues and am willing to find a doctor that WILL test me if my symptoms seem to point to celiac...Here they are:
      I have been diagnosed with all of the following over the last 12 years (I am 22 years old, and have always been a healthy weight/slightly underweight, and quite active):
      Irritable Bowel Syndrome Fibromyalgia Anorexia (started when I was 10, I have been mostly recovered since I was 14) Depression Anxiety Panic Attacks Horrible mood swings (from suicidal to totally fine in a matter of minutes)
        Chronic constipation and bloating Acne   HOWEVER, no one in my family has been diagnosed with celiac....am I wrong to think I have it??
    • Weird Reaction
      Yes, I was surprised about the MSG in broccoli as well. I just had a quick look now as I couldn't remember where I had read it but some mushrooms have it to. A Google search will bring up a few things. I always just thought MSG was an artificial food enhancer!! Insecticides are still a big possibility though. Why do you not want to try organic? We buy organic when we can and fruits and veges that are in season are usually the best and cheapest.  Thank you for the link, Cristiana. Very helpful. I have an appointment with my Naturopath in a couple of weeks and going to have a blood test done before that. She is excellent. Very knowledgeable and loves her work. Until then I'm not taking any supplements. I generally eat pretty well anyway so we'll see what she says. In the past I have used B12 injections (aka Neo Cytamen) which I found much better and safer than taken orally and very cheap. The energy boost was very noticeable. I didn't know it helped with anxiety though. She has also had me on Magnesium, Probiotics and Vitamin D3 and I also make my own Liver Tonic (Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root Powder, L-Glutamine, Taurine and Choline Bitartrate) which I use from time to time for a quick detox. Too much of anything can be bad but I think iron can be not real good in large amounts. Deficiencies can be related to gut health and/or competing for absorbtion with something else you may be taking I found. I'm no expert though but just a few things I've picked up during research. My normal GP told me to just eat some more red meat but I want to speak to my Naturopath first before supplementing. Her knowledge on nutrition is a bit more up-to-date.  I was just sitting there at lunch today after feeling great all morning and had a "weird feeling" come over me. Just a not quite right feeling. Very hard to describe and nausea seems to have returned to. It's funny that as I get older any little thing I get I seem to think it's life threatening even though all the tests I get back say I'm in good health. I guess that's part of that dread and doom and gloom feeling I mentioned earlier. Wish that would go away.  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      There are great gluten-free pizza crusts out there, as well as good dairy free cheese. I find the key is to add good toppings, e.g. meats, carmelized onions, other veggies, white anchovies. Life goes on. Congrats. Hope the good feelings keep up. 
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Just want to update incase anyone can find this helpful. I have stopped eating grains and dairy and everyday I'm feeling more and more like myself. It's amazing and I don't really care that I won't eat a regular pizza again. I mean 4 months ago I would have said I would die without gluteny soft pizza, now I am happy to never eat it again if it means I will never have to suffer a panic attack.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
