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.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
