Chick Peas

Is it normal to get diarrhea from eating chick peas, or could that be a sign of another intolerance?

Millet: Is millet the same thing as corn? I'm intolerant of millet so am wondering about corn too now.

Not sure if it's "normal" or not to get diarrhea from chick peas, but I do know that they're gluten free. So you could very well have another intolerance. And no, millet isn't the same thing as corn...it's a different cereal grain.

:-) Feel better!

It may well be because so many of us can't tolerate carbs in general - it seems that we may be lacking, possibly due to the gut damage or other factors, enough of the correct enzymes to be able to break it down properly.

Apparently, improperly digested or undigested carbohydrates are yummy food for yeasts and other pathogens and the toxins they give off during the carb digestion can cause reactions. Some carbs may be more problematic for us than others. I get the feeling that when something like gluten is removed from the diet although they may die back initially, they very likely then adapt to a different food source and come back with a vengeance! That could explain why some do not get better on a gluten-free diet, or feel better for a while then get worse again.

As much as I like chick peas as hoummous etc., I have to avoid them generally as my body can't cope with carbs very well and they are very carb-dense (although I think the carb-level is lowered when they are sprouted - and they also then contain lots of enzymes which may help in their digestion)

I am researching enzymes at the moment as I feel that a lack of certain enzymes may well be the issue behind a lot of my health problems over the years. Plant-based ones are better than animal-based and I am also trying to find some without betaine added as I tried some with that and they gave me D and a sore stomach. Not enough acid can slow the digestion - too much can speed it up. There are a lot of different brands on the market and I have realised that not all Digestive Enzyme brands are good ones!

Through trial and error, I find that I need some carbs. However, I can't tolerate legumes at all. I get sicker from those than gluten or anything else I'm sensitive to.

Strangely, I don't get D with legumes (I do with the other foods I'm sensitive to), rather I get horrible nausea. It feels like I've been poisoned.

In answer to your question, it's not "normal" to get D from chick peas but you could have an intolerance to them that didn't show up before you were gluten-free. That's what happened to me.

I don't tolerate canned or dried chick peas but can tolerate frozen ones. I can also eat fresh so I don't think it's the chick peas. There may be something in the processing so you might want to try another brand and see if that makes a difference. It might not necessarily be a gluten thing. It could just be that you don't tolerate chick peas or there is some preservative that is causing a problem.

A lot of chick peas and beans state on the label that they are processed in a facility that also processes wheat. That might be the problem. Same with the millet.

I have the same reaction.. I love hummus, but I get extreme bloating, gas, and C, as well as some wicked fluid retention.

I read on another discussion board that someone found some grains of pearl barley in their lentils, then when I went shopping today they'd added to the label of the green lentils I normally buy "may contain gluten". Is it possible that chickpeas could be contaminated by pearl barley as well?

AliB - that is very interesting what you said about our bodies not being able to digest carbs particularly well. I caught my celiac fairly early; my villa were only mildly blunted and I had mild malabsorption. But I was suffering from major GI symptoms, mainly excessive gas, D, bloating, etc.

Since cutting out gluten (about 7 months), I've definitely felt much much better. There was a period of time I had no gas issues. And not to be gross, but the gas I was experiencing was wayyy different than normal gas. Most of you probably know the kind I'm talking about. My life was getting ridiculous, as I would have to stay away from people merely because of my gas. Anyway, for the past couple months, I've noticed myself being more gassy. I have also given up dairy and soy after noticing a link to those foods. I'm starting to think my gas issues are a result of eating too much carbs? I just don't know. It's so frustrating. I really thought I was all better but now that awful gas has crept back in. I don't really have D or the other GI symptoms usually, it's mostly just the gas and occasional stomach bloat/pain. I really notice it after eating hummus (which I love and eat a lot of!), gluten-free bread, gluten-free cereal. I've been trying to cut back on the bread and cereal, but I guess I should cut out the hummus for awhile.

I used to take probiotics after initially going gluten-free. Maybe this helped? Would you (or anyone) recommend taking probiotics? Thanks for any help!

I also have problems digesting chickpeas as well as with beans. Do you have a problem with beans as well?

    • In Dire Need Of Help
      Having anxiety is a major symptom of celiac disease per many of our members on this forum (including me).  These are the tests needed for diagnosing celiac disease but the catch is that you need to be consuming gluten in order for them to be valid.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your GP or PCD doctor can order the panel.  Try to go for the complete panel.  Often just the TTG tests are given in order to save costs.  It's good, but does not catch all celiacs. I hope you get relief!

      You need to have your adrenal glands checked. I was diagnosed with celiac after my adrenal glands started to shut down. Since then I have met at least 3 others that had the same thing happen. It was missed 3 times in the hospital, for some reason the adrenals often get missed.  It sounds like the latter stages of hypo adrenalism, not adrenal fatigue. Research it to see if that seems like what you are going through and make sure you find a dr that knows how to diagnose and treat it
    • In Dire Need Of Help
      Hi my name is Alex and I am 23 years old. I am suffering so badly right now in life. Everyday I have multiple, very severe panic attacks. I have called 911 many times in the last 6 months. I am suffering with vertigo, intense weakness and pains, I can not digest anything, I have terrible acid reflux, I can't sleep, I can't relax, my heart constantly palpitates, my breathing is "forced labor" all day. I am suffering in a mental fog. I have been from doctor to hospital to doctor and every EKG comes back normal, every doctor says the same thing, I am struggling with anxiety and they write me whatever prescription of the week they are offering  I recently took it upon myself to cut gluten out of my diet, and wallah! I felt like I did in high school within 2 days. I work in NYC and many times it is nearly impossible to find something containing no gluten, and many times when I ask they tell me "No Gluten" and I eat whatever food I ordered (probably salad w/ dressing) and i find myself driving home in a terrible panic attack. Panic is my main symptom. I have not been diagnosed yet, but the difference from how I feel and how to the people around me tell me I act I am 100% convinced. The question I'm having is, what do you think? Is it possible I have Celiac? Can panic be the main symptom? I'm telling you right now, my anxiety is unlike anything anyone has ever seen. I lay on the ground for 2 hours with numb limbs feeling like I am having a stroke unable to talk to anyone. I have 2 of these a day. Please let me know your thoughts. I truly am a novice with all of this. I am suffering and I need help. Thanks
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The following link might be helpful for others experiencing simlar psychosomatic issues with doctors. Although it's only for psychiatrists, I think it should be for all doctors! http://www.psychsearch.net/complaints/ The neuropsychiatrist I saw might fall into this category? I can checkmark:

       Falsified medical records
       No Biological Test for "Mental Illness" (no blood, urine or other lab testing)
       Breach of Confidentiality (...if she sends my medical records to my doctor or discusses them with him. I am requesting a copy of my records from this doctor t see if she sent anything to him.)
       Physical Illness Misdiagnosed as "Mental Illness"
       I was told I have a "chemical imbalance" (without any lab tests)
       Unethical Conduct
       Unprofessional conduct
       Something else that didn't seem quite right  
    • Allergy or Preference? Waiter asks
      At my local Five Guys, I told the counter guy that I had to avoid gluten for medical reasons. I was ordering a burger with no bun and some fries. He yelled back "Allergy Alert!" and every line cook immediately changed gloves and cleaned their work space. Will I go back? You bet I will!

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
