Doing Better Avoiding Gluten
Posted 02 June 2005 - 07:18 AM
I am still having a rough time with what to eat though. It seems that I am still not able to tolerate a lot of other foods. Rice and starches do me in. I can have a little piece of potatoe but if I have anything more I get bloated and feel ill....(but not gluten sick!) I have to rotate raw nuts.......if I eat anything roasted the oils get me sick. I tried potatoe chips but the oil make me sick too........again...not gluten sick just sour bloated gut that lasts a while.
I still can't have any type of beans or lentils...........I had the smallest amount of fresh lentils that I made and was blown up for 2 days.......NOT FUN!
I have been talking with the nutrionist at Columbia Presbyterian and she has been guiding me a lot. the thing is that I am getting discouraged. I am trying so hard to eat more and vary my diet but it is not working. The only thing that makes me feel better is avoidance of all the things that I am intolerant to. Trying to add back a little at a time is not working. I think I might have to accept the fact that I have to keep a very simple and limited diet.
To make things more difficult my Interstitial Cystitis is really acting up and I can't tolerate any fruits and some vegetables (especially those high in potassium or acidity) they are a killer on the bladder. I have been addressing the bladder problems with my urololgist so I'll spare you the horrible details.......but it hasn't been fun. Of course this now means I am not getting enough fiber which brings on a whole bunch of other problems. I just can't seem to get it balanced yet. When I feel that I want a snack I usually wind up having something and then paying for it later...........with IBS or bladder pain. As for gluten though..........I am doing pretty good keeping away from it. I have read that if you stop the gluten then a lot fo the other intolerances might get better. so far that has not been the case with me and doesn't look like it will be. I am tired of having gut problems
