Green Peppers Or Garlic
0

13 posts in this topic

Lately, I have noticed an unusual :unsure: reaction after I eat and it is usually after consuming green peppers or garlic. Don't know which of the two is the true culprit but was wondering if anyone else has issues with this. I have seen a couple of posts on :huh: night shades :huh: ?? but don't have true information. Any help or info appreciated :) -Jenny

omg jen- it has been an ongoing puzzle for me... sometimes garlic & bell peppers bother me, sometimes they dont... sometime dairy bothers me.. sometimes not... 90% of the time i have Fructose Malabsorption... and once in a blue moon i cant do sweet potatoes..

i think in a nutshell- with Celiac & GI-> our systems have been compromised, and untill completely healed- or maybe never- it MAY be hard to digest certain foods.

another good guide for me has been Dr. D'Adamo's Bloodtype & Genotype diets (****just make sure u do a 100% Gluten Free version of it)- but 95% of the guidelines for me as an O+ Nonsecretor & Gatherer genotype have correlated w/ my digestive issues. (ie: no pears,apple juice, orange juice,MOST grains, soy,dairy, etc)

good luck with your puzzle :)

You can try eliminating tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers and see if that helps. They are all nightshades. I can eat sweet potatoes ok, but nay regular potatoes are a problem.

Have you tried eliminating soy yet?

Could be either one or both. I tested pos. to green peppers and kiddo tested stronly pos. to garlic. Allergist said he has a patient who has an anaphalactic reaction to garlic :o Who knew such a thing was possible? With leaky guts we can end up allergic to almost anything. Good luck sorting it out.

The "blood type" diet is rubbish. That fellow is laughing his way to the bank. Notice how the most popular American foods are lined up with the most common American blood type, O.

The classic way to test is to eliminate both nightshades (all kinds of peppers, eggplant, potato, tomato, tomatillo) and onions and garlic (they're related) for two weeks. Then challenge one food at a time, in a very pure form, and with no other potential problem foods. Give a minimum of 3 days between challenges. If you eat a food both raw and cooked, test both as they can be different.

I met that blood type diet guy once while almost buying a car from him. He's a fool, don't put any faith into a thing he says as far as nutrition goes.

I have a coworker who has a serious problem with cooked whole garlic, but can do garlic powder/garlic salt without issues and ...

I find interesting correlations with my gluten-free definitely not-average-blood-type diet and results as a highly atopic individual...but I'm buying food anyway and the library is free in most countries, still. :)

I started noticing stomach problems with uncooked green peppers many years ago, long before any of my other symptoms came to the forefront. I put garlic in lots of foods and have never noticed anything that removing gluten didn't help (caveat - not cure, so far, but helped massively) but I'm still cautious about green peppers. Maybe cooked, it's not as problematic, but I can't speak to that since I don't like the way they taste cooked and rarely put them in anything I'm cooking. I used to add them as the last ingredient (so they wouldn't overcook) when I've made chili in the long past. They really stood out to me as a problematic food, and I have a highly varied diet and have eaten lots of things over the years, so I don't think it's crazy/weird/etc. to suspect them at all.

I also have recently been having spells(what I call them) I have been using garlic as I had heard it was good for the problems. I stopped green peppers and went to red which don't bother me as much. Tomatoes are somewhat of a problem. Any thoughts

You are replying to a thread that is over 2 years old and the OP may not see it. Just so you know. :)

You may well be sensitive to nightshades. How do do with eggplant and potatoes? Those are the other two major members of the nightshade family, along with chili peppers and paprika (and of course the peppers and tomatoes).

    • 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.
