Eggs Bother Anyone ?
0

17 posts in this topic

Hi, I've been off gluten for almost a year now and feeling good. I don't have to many options for a good breakfast so I usually just stick with bacon and eggs, but some days I get really bad cramps afterwards. I'm sure its the eggs but I don't know why they would bother me. Does anyone else feel like this after eating eggs and does anyone know why?

Likely its an allergy, I have the same problem. Its OK if I eat them once a week however...

Am now on a no grain diet (scd) and that seems to be helping. In the past I couldn't tolerate eggs (and a number of other things) at all...

I've always had a strong aversion to eggs and not sure what is going on. I call it an intolerance for now. Had one test done for both egg whites and yolks(separately) but it wasn't helpful. I seem to be able to handle an egg or two in baked goods occasionally but not straight up. The concentration/ratio seems to be important-there is a clear threshold of tolerance. I've been experimenting with ground flax as an egg replacer in baked good that call for alot of eggs.

Eggs can bother me depending on how they're cooked. Extra oil in the cooking... usually gets to me. (So, restaurant/diner cooked eggs, which tend to be greasy, do NOT sit well, but home cooked eggs which are cooked exactly the same way but on a non-stick skillet without oil are just fine.

I've always had some problems with pork producing gluten like symptoms.

eggs have become a big no-no for me also. I MISS BREAKFAST FOODS!!!!! I have simply learned to eat non-breakfast type foods. Really, the goal is to put nutrition and food into my stomach and make it till lunch. I usually eat leftover whatever was for supper the past night or two. There are some great egg replacers for baked good....ENER-G powdered Egg Replacer, for one. I totally get missing good eggs, though. Just as a side note, pp said you can have them once a week.....maybe YOU can't. I have been SO good about staying away from them for at least a couple of years and accidently had something last week with 2 eggs in a very large dish. I thought....well, maybe it's so little, it won't bother me. WRONG!!! Eggs did NOT show up on an allergy test, so its simply another "intolerance", one of many, many for me. But cheating, even once in a blue moon, doesn't seem to be my luck. Best wishes.

I'm absolutely fine with eggs in a recipe mixed with other ingredients, but I get nauseated if I eat them plain, as in scrambled eggs.

Yep! Gluten is not a problem for me but I do have food allergies. Took me a while to discover this. I have diabetes so I have to watch my carbs. I ate a lot of cottage cheese for breakfast but couldn't always find the kind I wanted or I just got sick of it and wanted a change. So I would eat boiled eggs.

We were living in NY at the time and my daughter was in Pre-K. I would have to drive her to school right after breakfast. Every morning I would get to the door, feel my stomach rumble and then have to run back to the bathroom. I would get her to school and just barely make it back home again. I thought it was nerves and driving in the NY traffic. Never dawned on me that eggs might be the culprit.

Then we moved to WA. Daughter was diagnosed with food allergies. Eggs and dairy being among them. For her sake, I quit eating these things. Figured it would be easier on her if I didn't eat them either.

Then one day I was getting salad at the salad bar. I took some egg salad. About 16 hours later, I became very sick to my stomach. The next day I was fool enough to eat the rest of the egg salad. 2 hours later I became ill again! Thought it was food poisoning.

Then about a month later, I had some eggs that I had bought for my husband that were about to go bad. I made egg salad with them. Ate some. 16 hours later, got sick. Still didn't make the connection because the reaction was so delayed. Ate some the next day. 2 hours later got sick.

I then saw the pattern! So I quit eating eggs. Decided to get myself tested due to my mother's and my daughter's allergies. The Dr. told me I was very allergic to something and asked me to guess what it was. Yep! Eggs. Also dairy and almonds.

Took a couple of weeks to get eveything cleared out of my system. Only then did I begin to feel better. I suspect I was allergic to at least the eggs and dairy all of my life. As a child, my stomach was sick more often than it wasn't. I had constantly itchy nose and eyes. I took allergy pills and they didn't help.

Now I am much better! I am careful not to eat anything that might contain my allergens. I should add that mine are IgG allergies and not IgE.

I've thought for quite some time now that scrambled or fried eggs don't aggree with my stomach. It's fairly minor, and I'm not totally convinced. Still, I'm suspect of them. I get a slight tummy ache, and maybe just a touch of D. Only eat them maybe once every 3 weeks or so.

best regards, lm

I was wondering where you got IgG testing done at? Did you have to go to a naturopath? I have had Rast testing done and of course negative for everything. But I am really wondering if I have problems with eggs,soy and dairy. I think I will get tested.I live in Washington as well about 45 minutes from Bothell.

Oreilly,

Eggs are tricky boogers. I was eating them for breakfast this summer quite regularly with no problem until one day I got terrible cramps and burning, like acid reflux. I never have this problem with any of my many other allergies & sensitivities so I was confused. I did eventually give them up when I made the connection and all was well. I've been risky to try them again lately and have found that I can not eat more than one at a time, and shouldn't eat more than one day after the other. I haven't tried the every other day thing, but once in a while, like maybe once a week, it seems alright just to eat an egg. I suggest not eating them with much fat or oil because grease is hard for a compromised intestine to process. Mix that with the complicated egg and there's disaster. Best wishes!

Ever since eliminating gluten form my diet 16 months ago, I am noticing other intolerances that at times can be as debilitating as gluten was. First reaction was to soy, always had a reaction to casein and now eggs and nuts, seeds make me very sick. I am right now trying egg free in hopes of clearing up the latest gastro issues. I keep wondering if it ever stops. At thsi point I am unsure.

Good to know that I'm not the only one with these issues! I've been gluten free now for almost two years and doing soooo much better BUT...I think I'm developing other intolerances. Had eggs this morning for breakfast and several hours later had massive D. For the last several months I've noticed that eggs will upset my stomache a little bit after I eat them but after staying away from them for a couple of weeks or so, I would be silly and eat them again thinking it would be okay. Well, I'm done with being silly. Why eat something you know is gonna mess your gut up? I think having baked items with eggs in them is okay for me but no more straight up eggs! :(

Yes, eggs bother me. My whole gut gets very sick after I eat eggs. I've been tested and I am not allergic to them.

Anyone know if chickens fed gluten in the feed transfers the gliadin proteins to the eggs? The eggs I used to buy were from a very small farm, but the farmer did feed them some whole wheat bread.

Reason I ask, I was told: nope, no gluten in milk. But I get very sick from milk, I am not lactose intolerant, and have no IgG allergy to dairy or caesin. The milk I was buying, also from a small farm, animals were fed with some barley and oats. Wish I'd found this article sooner: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9867098

Does anyone notice that eggs affect their mood?

Yes! I've been making a lot of diet connections lately. I'm not gluten-free (my boys are) but I've been free of other foods because my breastfed daughter. Through that, I found that dairy really bothered me and I had no idea that was causing all those problems! But the most recent discovery is eggs. I've never liked eggs much but obviously I'd eat them in baked goods or what not. Pretty quick I get stomach cramps that last that day and bad gas the next. BUT, I also start to feel blah and end up with a migraine. So with those feelings I'm usually more snippy and just want to be off myself. My poor kids and husband!

I cannot tolerate eggs, either. They upset my stomach. I have no problems with chicken or any other meats though.

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
