Allergies To Chicken, Dairy, Soy, Corn, Sunflower... What Can I Eat?

7 posts in this topic

I have celiac disease, and am very comfortable in my gluten free lifestyle. However a good friend of ours has a three yr old who was diagnosed with more allergies than I can remember, and now they have absolutely no clue what to feed him other than fruit! He is not diagnosed celiac as of yet, but who knows... so he does eat gluten. He is allergic to soy, dairy, chicken sometimes, all tree nuts, peanuts, corn, sunflower anything, and a few others I can't remember. I told them I would poke around here to see if anyone else had similar allergies, but can't seem to find anything. Any thoughts? So far they have bought a gallon of hemp milk (never heard of it) and are feeding him fruit cups, applesauce, and one finger food like teddy grahams that seems to meet the criteria. Any help you can offer would be VERY appreciated!!!

Well, I see references to allergies/intolerances/sensitivities to the things you've mentioned all the time on this board, but not necessarily all in one post or thread. From what I know, numerous allergies are often a sign of one or more underlying issues, usually of greater concern, though often overlooked/undetected.

IMHO, they should simply try the gluten-free diet and see what happens. It cannot hurt. Besides, the Celiac tests aren't very reliable in small children anyway.

I ate a lot of lamb and rice as a child because I had a lot of allergies and sensitivities. Basically, it's a lot of cooking. Breakfast is easy because he can eat wheat. A wheat cereal, eggs and toast, or even pancakes or waffles made from scratch will work. For lunch, sandwiches with a non-chicken meat, sliced vegetables, fruit. His mom can probably make soups he can eat, like homemade bean soups, turkey noodle instead of chicken, or beef stew. His mom will need to cook dinners, but it sounds like he can nave meats other than chicken, rice, potatoes, pasta, most vegetables, and his teddy grahams for desert. He needs lots of calcium-rich vegetables like spinach, turnip greens, and kale. There is calcium fortified orange juice available too.

I forgot to add he is also allergic to eggs, cooked or raw, which apparently ruins almost all store made bread... and cakes... and cookies... everything! Poor kiddo. Thanks for your responses, you confirmed what I already thought - underlying condition!!!

Well, we came home with such a list from the allergist last year(actually all on that list except chicken, plus some others) and that's after both of us being gluten-free for quite a while-years for me and over 1 for kiddo. We seem to have the genetic make-up that we become allergic to the foods that we frequently eat-Kiddo overdid apples last year and ended up allergic, I overdid chocolate and pumkin this year and now I'm allergic. Not overdoing one food and rotation and variety help. I'm thinking that we may be experiencing leaky gut. Check Leaky Gut Theory or Leaky Gut Syndrome. After avoiding these foods for a 6mos. to a year, we are no longer testing pos. to some and our symptoms have gone. We've ditched a few, at least for a while, so we can have them back.

But, my they are missing SO many things that could be included in this kiddo's diet. What about all the fresh meats and veggies?

Here are some possibilities, please have them check the ingredients because that list of avoids combines kiddo and my avoids.

I think the Erewhon rice cereals are corn-free

So Delicious coconut milk(the unsweetened tastes very neutral and is not thick like canned coconut milk

other coconut milk products-ice creams

Kirkland canned tuna(Costco) is soy-free

it's a little more expensive but pumpkin seed butter is available online(PB alternative)

they can still make puddings maybe with a starch other than corn and the coconut milk beverage

Namaste mixes are corn-free, check for other allergens

Glutenfreeda instant oatmeal-didn't see any corn when I checked the label today

flax meal can be used as an egg replacer in baked goods-google instructions, vegan sites may help as they are dairy and egg-free

I'm on the SCD diet that does not allow grains, sugar, soy, corn, or starchy veggies. Although your friend's son can eat some of these, they may benefit from the recipes on this SCD site: http://www.scdrecipe.com/home/

Here's a resource for parents who are considering trying the SCD diet for their child: http://pecanbread.com/p/intro/nt/introhome.html

Hope this helps.

What sort of allergic reaction(s) is the 3 YO having? Is it a gluten-like reaction? Rash? Runny nose / sinus reaction? Something else?

      I think, if all this is caused by glutening, it could be that it takes a while to work its way out of your system. I should explain about what I said about organic broccoli.   I don't have a problem with organic food,  in fact, I buy organic milk and carrots all the time, but I don't want to try organic broccoli in case it is the broccoli that is the problem, not the insecticide.    I meant to ask, are you a coeliac or is it non-coeliac gluten intolerance that you have?   I wonder what sort of support you get in Australia for these conditions once diagnosed?   Here in the UK I think the understanding that if new gastro symptoms have lasted for more than six weeks it needs to be investigated.   I have found this very helpful advice because I do get odd twinges of pain and sometimes changes but they rarely last more than three weeks.   If they do persist I mention it to my gastroenteroligist and he follows it up.  I recently had a sigmoidoscopy for left sided pain and they found nothing.  Turns out it was to do with lactose intolerance, but I always imagine the worse!  
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Welcome, @iwillmoveamountain! Of course you are not wrong to pursue getting testing for celiac. My advice is to drop that doctor and find a new one, preferably one who is celiac savvy, and who will listen to you and test you for the disease.  
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Hi! I was hoping some of you might be able to tell me if my symptoms seem like good reason to be tested for celiac disease... I actually asked my doctor to test me (years ago) and she told me she would not test me because the test is expensive... However, I am now desperate to figure out how to manage my health issues and am willing to find a doctor that WILL test me if my symptoms seem to point to celiac...Here they are:
      I have been diagnosed with all of the following over the last 12 years (I am 22 years old, and have always been a healthy weight/slightly underweight, and quite active):
      Irritable Bowel Syndrome Fibromyalgia Anorexia (started when I was 10, I have been mostly recovered since I was 14) Depression Anxiety Panic Attacks Horrible mood swings (from suicidal to totally fine in a matter of minutes)
        Chronic constipation and bloating Acne   HOWEVER, no one in my family has been diagnosed with celiac....am I wrong to think I have it??

      Yes, I was surprised about the MSG in broccoli as well. I just had a quick look now as I couldn't remember where I had read it but some mushrooms have it to. A Google search will bring up a few things. I always just thought MSG was an artificial food enhancer!! Insecticides are still a big possibility though. Why do you not want to try organic? We buy organic when we can and fruits and veges that are in season are usually the best and cheapest.  Thank you for the link, Cristiana. Very helpful. I have an appointment with my Naturopath in a couple of weeks and going to have a blood test done before that. She is excellent. Very knowledgeable and loves her work. Until then I'm not taking any supplements. I generally eat pretty well anyway so we'll see what she says. In the past I have used B12 injections (aka Neo Cytamen) which I found much better and safer than taken orally and very cheap. The energy boost was very noticeable. I didn't know it helped with anxiety though. She has also had me on Magnesium, Probiotics and Vitamin D3 and I also make my own Liver Tonic (Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root Powder, L-Glutamine, Taurine and Choline Bitartrate) which I use from time to time for a quick detox. Too much of anything can be bad but I think iron can be not real good in large amounts. Deficiencies can be related to gut health and/or competing for absorbtion with something else you may be taking I found. I'm no expert though but just a few things I've picked up during research. My normal GP told me to just eat some more red meat but I want to speak to my Naturopath first before supplementing. Her knowledge on nutrition is a bit more up-to-date.  I was just sitting there at lunch today after feeling great all morning and had a "weird feeling" come over me. Just a not quite right feeling. Very hard to describe and nausea seems to have returned to. It's funny that as I get older any little thing I get I seem to think it's life threatening even though all the tests I get back say I'm in good health. I guess that's part of that dread and doom and gloom feeling I mentioned earlier. Wish that would go away.  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      There are great gluten-free pizza crusts out there, as well as good dairy free cheese. I find the key is to add good toppings, e.g. meats, carmelized onions, other veggies, white anchovies. Life goes on. Congrats. Hope the good feelings keep up.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
