Food Intolerances That Cause Diarrhea Other Than Gluten
0

17 posts in this topic

What other intolerances do you find you have when you have a sensitive intestinal track?

I find now that I have trouble with almonds, sometimes chocolate (even if it is gluten free), carrots, potatoes of all kinds, and fructose and high fructose.

Are these sensitivites somehow related - when you find you now have one - that others follow? What sources of food intake bothers you?

I get diarrhea from soy--even soy oil. Tapioca and legumes cause severe nausea and stomach pain.

Tapioca for me.

I've also heard that corn products are a big one as well.

Have you gone through allergy testing? My ds gets diarrhea if he accidentally ingests one of the foods that he has an IgE allergy for. Diarrhea for him is most common after wheat or soy.

Most chocolate has soy in it, so you might be reacting to that. I have trouble with carrots and nightshades (potato, tomato, peppers) among others. Tree nuts I am not decided about but have had a few experiences recently that make me wonder about them, especially walnuts.

Allergy testing might be helpful. Choose an allergist who is more knowledgeable about food allergies, some standard allergists can be dismissive.

I found that with the 20 some food allergies that I tested positive to, a large percentage of them caused me GI problems when I tried re-introducing them after eliminating them for a period of time.

Can't any kind of food intolerance theoretically cause diarrhea? There aren't really any set symptoms for an intolerance. Just look how variable Celiac symptoms can be. Some get D, some get C, and some get neither.

I met someone earlier this year who couldn't eat anything that had red food coloring in it. It can be frustratingly random when you're trying to pinpoint the root of your problems.

I'm starting to realize that I can't have Teff Flour without it making me have some delightful bathroom experiences. :blink:

It's not a gluten pain like I get in my stomach but it is an immediate "go not pass go, do not collect $200" emergency. :ph34r:

True IMHO.

Some people get hives with the allergies we have, but my son and I seem hard wired for nasal symptoms and GI symptoms for me and eczema for him. Multiple triggers for each kind of symptom for us.

Besides gluten for me: soy, dairy, legumes (any peas or beans), peanuts and tree nuts, tomato, citrus, and too much fat (anything more than a spray of plain olive oil). My symptoms for gluten are mostly physical, but symptoms when I eat soy or legumes often involve neurological issues.

I agree that it gets "frustratingly random" to figure out; at one point I was eating only potatoes while trying to figure things out. I just see my body and its intolerances as a constantly changing process. It's frustrating, but that also provides hope and a chance for healing. I do my best to listen to my body and then cut out offending culprits. Celiacs and other intolerances are chronic health issues, so it becomes a daily battle. I try to take things day by day, and if I can get through the day that's all I can ask!

And enjoy life chocolate - the best "safe" chocolate out there! I also have dark chocolate pieces that I get from a small, local chocolate shop - they can guarantee no dairy or soy are involved in the process of making them. Maybe there's a shop like this in your area that could help you out for some good, real chocolate?

    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
    • Mnoosh, I had swollen lymph nodes prior to celiac dx and for a while after going gluten free. My neck as well as groin. The groin ones were the worst. Guess what? All gone! It's hard to recall a time line & consider that everyone is different but I think mine completely resolved within a year.  You've been given great information. Just breathe and then again, breathe. You're going to be fine. 
    • It is the only thing you have eaten, so it can't be anything else?  I eat it with no issues so I am not sure how you can be certain that is the problem.  All I am saying is that its sort of "your word against mine and the company's word".  
    • Thanks cyclinglady & manasota! I appreciate it. I came to give an update...... I'm still 99% itch free. I get a "place" like a bug bite once in a while that itches and I just use the prescription steroid cream on it & that takes care of the itch. My rash is healing up rapidly everywhere. Almost clear skin now! Yaaaaayyyyyyyyyy! Now for a rundown of the "treatment". For 20 days I took a 100mg doxycycline twice a day. Then we upped it to two 100mg doxy twice per day. I took those for 5 days & made rapid progress and the itching stopped. The doxy was getting my tummy though. It was getting really rough despite my eating yogurt. So on day 6 and day 7, I took two 100mg doxy in the am but in the pm I just took 1 of them. On day 7, I was nauseous for hours on end. So since I was still doing well without itching and the rash was healing everywhere, I decided to cut back some more. On days 8, 9, & 10 I have only taken two 100mg doxy in the am and none at night. I'm doing good and my tummy is much, much happier! No more nausea!  I'll update as things go along.
