New Here But, Not New To Celiac Disease

B)

I have the following conditions, hypoglycemia chronic, celiac disease, neuropathy of my fingers, and toes.

I eat a special diet that I have come up with after reading allot of materials on Celiac Disease and dealing with Hypoglycemia. The diet is a follows:

Brown Organic Rice with husk left on straight from the fields. Ground up organic chicken breats with no hormones or other processing chemicals in them. Green Peas without salt added or other processing chemicals. Brown organic lentils, again straight from the fields. Straw Berries, black berries, and blue berries. 2 ounce of organic no hormone milk every meal. NO products containing refinded sugars at all.

Orange juice and other fruit juices spikes my blood glucose levels whether with or without sugars added.

Raw fruits like pieces of fresh apples, pares, etc.. spike my glucose too high. When that happens I get very sick and nausea imediately. I eat 6 small meals daily and all through the night. (every 4 hours)

Occording to my many doctors, I have had celiac disease most of you teenage and young life and it was left untreated for many, many years. I had glucose levels go from 55 mg/dl to 170 mg/dl (vary among these ranges.

What else could go wrong with me after all these many years of not being treated for these disorders? The diet mentioned above is the only food that sets right with my stomach at present time since, I have food allergies.

Hi and welcome to the board. How long have you been gluten free? Are you still having gluten symptoms? It sounds like you have found what works for your hypo issues. If you haven't been gluten free for very long you may find that as time go by some of your other food allergies resolve a bit. Have you tried making your own yogurt? It might be something that you will tolerate and give you a bit more variety. With the berries and some yogurt smoothies might be somewhat of a treat. If you have any questions feel free to ask. There are quite a few here with severely restricted diets who might be able to help.

I have other things going on with me at the very same time, also. I am a man of 57 years and, a US Military Veteran to boot. I have been diagnosed, with the following conditions in addition to the celiac disease.

Generalized Anxiety disorder, seizures, Agoraphobia with panic attacks, Enviromental Allergies and food additive allergies, Weight Loss, Tinnitus both ears, Male Erectile disorder, Hypoglycemia, possible type 1 diabetes.

Now, I am on this gluten free diet and it has helped control many of my symptoms and disorders. I was told 4 years ago about the Celiac Disease. I had the symptoms when I was a teen and young adult. Every time, I went to the doctors, I would ask what was wrong with me. They would just skake their heads and say they did not know or have a name for my symptoms. Later on however, I found it in my US Army active duty records and the VA records where they had hidden information about my conditions and withheld it from me for over 20 - 25 years. They knew but never told me.

I have been doing better the last 4 years since being on a gluten free diet than I have in the past. The difference is like comparing night aginst day.

Unfortunately, I still must battle the sugar levels every day as usual. B)

OMG! i cant believe they had information in your records... but just always shook their heads... wow, you've had to come a long way figuring it out on your own- our own instincts are powerful!

you said you're still having some sugar issues??? for some people- rice can still be a problem. i read once that basmati is less glycemic than the other rices.

have u tried a protein & vegtable diet only??? it might be more stabilizing for u ??? can you handle any red meats or fish??? i think only eating poultry could limit your nutrition....

good luck :)

First off thank you for your service. Our Military men and women are one of the countries most valuable assests. IMHO they should be treated better than it sounds like you were.

I am glad to hear that the diet is helping with many of the issues. As a recovering agoraphobic with PTSD myself I know how hard a road that is to walk. We can heal a lot though it is just a real hard fight.

I was also celiac since childhood but not diagnosed until my 40's as doctors can be so clueless. I eventually saw a lot of my allergies resolve and I hope the same happens for you but it can take time for the body to recover when we have been so ill for so long. Have you been able to talk to a good nutritionist? Sometimes they can be helpful. A doctor who deals with intolerances can sometimes help too. If it wasn't for my allergist realizing I was celiac I would likely be dead by now.

I hope you continue to improve.

what are you getting for fat in your diet? I don't see a whole lot of protein sources, and not much at all in the way of fat. both of those are important (at every meal) to balance blood sugar levels.

The fat issue was sort of my suggestion. Try adding olive oil with chicken broth and what ever veggies you can tolerate to that rice and/ or lentils with chicken and maybe some kind of seasonings??? Onion/garlic if you can tolerate will go along way to adding variety to your diet.You need to get some fats back into your diet. Have you tried any fish?? Again thank you for your dedication and service to your country. You deserved far better treatment!!!

I swear by virgin coconut oil, it's great on sweet potatoes or squash, or any veggies for hat matter

I've heard legumes like lentils can be inflammatory in general, so you might feel better if you try going without them?

I do get fat, the good fat in the diet by adding in 100% olive oil over top of my plate or bowl of food with ever meal. I just forgot to mention that. I use the olive oil imported directly from Greece. Otherwise, the olive oil you get could be made from anything under the sun. I am also allergic to nuts of all kinds and tree nuts as well with my food allergies. I found out the hard way after trying on different types of nuts following the dietition's instruction on eating. Dawn near died, wheezing, and coughing. Most dairy is off my list due to my Native American Ancestry. The only reason, I drink 2 ounces of natural chemical free milk is for the calcium factor. I used to take calcium pills but my body developed an allergy to them. The milk is skin milk. I had a problem with weight on and off all my life as an adult only. As a young teenager, I was so skinny people wondered how I was surviving what I was eating. As an adult, 5 years of over-weight followed by 3 years of extreme underweight. This time around it has lasted longer than even my doctor could have predicted. I am currently 5 feet 11 inches tall, with body weight 124 lbs. and no muscle tone. When ever, I exercise whatever pounds I loose it does not come back. The doctor told me to never exercise again. So, far my body is remaining 124 lbs and holding steady.

BMI is 17.3

Oh yes, forgot something else too. Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Celery, carrots, etc... put me in the emergency room several times when I tried eating them in different ways. Yes, also food additives did too. The additives they use to prepare foods. Years ago, I tried eat meat with just a little fat left on it both red meat and pork. The gull that came up in my throat dawn near stranggled me to death. See, I am very limited in food choices.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
