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).

    • As a GI specialty nurse who also has celiac I can tell you that it can not be diagnosed by CT and rarely unless you have severe disease can it be diagnosed by colonoscopy.  Those that have had it diagnosed by colonoscopy have such because their MDs were above to get into the small bowel from the bottom and take biopsys.  Celiac damage is not seen in the large intestine.  Also many people do not have diarrhea, many have constipation or a 50/50 mix between the two.  Celiac has 300 connected symptoms and sometimes no symptoms at all.  It's called the " great pretender" because of this.
    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
