Eggs Bother Anyone ?

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.

    • Gluten withdrawal. It's real. I agree with what cstark said but I call it gluten withdrawal. Your body really does get "addicted" to gluten and when you go gluten-free, then the body has to cope with the withdrawal of a substance it was used to getting on a regular basis even though that substance was killing you. It isn't much different than drug addiction & the withdrawal process from that.  It sucks, I know but I promise it will get better. Rest as much as you can, drink tons of water, eat well cooked foods to ease the strain on your villi. Bone broth - home made - is a great healer of the gut & very gentle on it as well as being extremely nourishing. Just google how to make it. {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}
    • Push for the endoscopy.  My GI said at the initial consult that he didn't think I had celiac but wanted to do the scope to "rule it out"  When he saw me immediately after the endo, while I was still in recovery, he saw enough damage to change his position and sure enough the biopsy came back positive.
    • Your body has been used to ingesting and has been coping with the gluten in its systems.  DON'T PANIC because your body is doing it for you.   Seriously now, the medical field has a technological term defining when a system is used to working a certain way/routine.  When that is either disrupted or changed, it could take a while for the body adjust to a different way of doing things.  Another factor in the increase in symptoms could possibly be that your body is starting to "clean house".  It's trying to get rid of the amounts of gluten hiding out in all its nooks and crannies.  It is going to be a long term process.  It's like cleaning out a vacuum hose or other household item that is just caked with gunk.  The first cleaning gets rid of a large portion of the gunk and ick.  The subsequent cleanings gets rid of more and more ick but in lesser amounts. I thought I was going to go crazy those first few months, but things are a lot better now. (I am about 10 months gluten free).  I still have moments of brain fog and even episodes, but my body is getting closer (and more used to)  to having a cleaner "household item".  I know it's tough at first with the increased onslaught of symptoms, but hang in there.   You may want to keep a journal of all that you ingest or come into contact with for a time to track anything that could exacerbate symptoms.  (For me, my episodes are chemically triggered as well.)  If for some reason a few months down the road, you still have large amounts of symptoms it would be a good idea to visit your GP again just in case there something else that is going on.  
    • I would love some help! After 20ish years of being misdiagnosed with IBS, I was diagnosed with celiac disease (positive blood test for tTG IgA and positive duodenal biopsy) ~ 6 weeks ago. Of course I've gone completely gluten free, and I've been crazy paranoid careful not to ingest any gluten. I've also completely avoided all oats (even certified gluten free) and cut out lactose (due to transient lactose intolerance... because I don't have villi) . But now I feel WAY WORSE. I've had abdominal pain every single day, which ranges from mild aching to severe 10/10 laying on the floor crying and vomiting pain. I understand that it takes a long time to get better, but why would I get so much worse? My best guess is SIBO, but I can't imagine that it could cause such extreme symptoms, can it?  So my question to you fine folks is: did this happen to anyone else? Have you gotten sicker after you changed your diet? Is this normal?  For arguments sake, lets assume that I did not ingest any gluten to cause these symptoms... Thank you for your help!
    • Thanks very much Cyclinglady. Yes, it is Kaiser. I doctor said the GI think it is unlikely to be celiac deisease (he did not say how he came to this conclusion), but he would be happy to do an upper endoscopy for me. I did some look up online, this procedure should be low risk. Still feel a little hesitate while reading the potential risks :(.
