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?

    • 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.
