Going Yeast And Gluten Free?
0

4 posts in this topic

Hi, my name is Gabi...I do not believe that I have Celiac disease...I believe that I have a Candida overgrowth and I am looking to rectify that problem. The biggest obstacle so far: Finding out what foods I can and cannot eat!

I have researched to my death and I keep coming up with the same information: "If you go yeast free, go gluten free at the same time"...BUUT, I cannot find any information on foods that are safe and foods that I should avoid while doing both at the same time...I keep finding one or the other...and there is so much conflicting information!

I had wanted to print out the lists from this website by copy/pasting the list into a word document, but it creates an 11 page list that leaves half of the paper unused and, being an earth lover, I cannot justify wasting the paper!

Help!! Does anyone here have experience with eliminating yeast/gluten/sugar/dairy from their diets? I really need some pointers!

I cannot be the only person in this world trying to do this diet...can I??

Thanks so much, any information would be appreciated! :)

I have had very bad acid reflux for the past 2 years. My brother, a D.O. in Maine, gave me an organic yeast test. It came back with very high levels of yeast. He put me on a gluten, sugar, and dairy, yeast elimination diet for 6 months. It was basically a vegetable (except mushrooms-due to the fungus), meat, and rice diet. It was hard to begin with but, I eventually got used to it. I am now off the diet and I slowly reintroduced those things I couldn't eat while on the diet. I still have problems with gluten.

I am in the process of doing the gluten challenge so I can be tested. I did really well when I was gluten-well. I have several rashes that look like DH which have been there for about 8 months or so. I don't know for sure yet since I have not been tested. I hope this helps!

That does help, thank you so much!! I had started to get really confused about rice lol... some lists said to avoid it, others said limit it, and still others said have at it!

Now, do you know about corn products...like grits and cornmeal? I've read to avoid corn in it's vegetable form, but again, conflicting information on corn as a cereal/flour.

I continued eating corn products, such as grits. In either form I ate corn. So, I think it is fine.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
