Spicy Foods And Cd

7 posts in this topic

I've been going gluten free because I have extremely high suspicions that I have celiac disease, and I my doctor suggested while I am waiting for results to just begin a gluten free lifestyle.

Does anyone feel more sensitive to spicy foods? I don't know if perhaps I am digesting things different now.

Thanks.

Make sure your spices don't have gluten in them-we had a whole bunch we can't use! The spice packet for Taco Bell has wheat in it and the spices they use in their restaurant do also because Robbie can't eat a taco or the cheese sauce.

If you are not gluten free and a celiac then just about anything can affect your stomach.

I know when I first started the diet anything spicy would upset my stomach...I guess that was during the healing time.

You do have to make sure the spices are gluten free though too.

Everything needs to be checked... even products.

I love spicy food and can handle it with no problem now. Maybe once you heal then you can have it or maybe there is something your body just doesn't agree with but make sure the spices are gluten free.

The spicy food that you are eating may have gluten in it, or you may just be sensitive to it for a while. I use McCormick a lot for my spices since they will clearly indicate gluten in their ingredient lists.

I'm not particularly sensitive to spicy food - in fact my husband has to regularly remind me to make dinner "only a little bit spicy" or what I think is nicely spicy will be too hot for him to eat! ;-) But everyone's different, regardless of celiac disease, as to how much spiciness sits well with them.

I called all of the companies - it was a horseradish I was using, as well as French's Bold and Spicy mustard, Frank's Hot Sauce, and even freshly grated ginger!

Ack.

This is hard.

Habenero peppers all the way! :lol: I like my food radioactive. I only use real peppers to spice up my foods. I don't use any processed spices or sauces at all.

    • Hi thanks for this. The kidney function test I a few weeks ago came back normal but there was a question mark over ketones, they said it was all okay, then last week the doctor rang me as there was ketones in a urine sample and I have to repeat the test next week. I'm a bit confused if they weren't worried about the blood test.   I feel for your brother, that sounds awful what he's been through. I have started to get some pain in the leg that is permanently numb, I really hope I find some answers soon. Thanks again.
    • I haven't seen my gastroenterologist for a few years.  I was diagnosed celiac and have been gluten free for more than 5 years.  I've been having trouble again for the past 6 months or so.  I've done a full elimination diet and have come up with the culprit - eggs!   I did a search of the forum here and have found it's not uncommon for people with celiac to develop a sensitivity to eggs.     I can forego eating eating eggs but It's getting to be flu season.  I was planning on getting my flu shot today, as usual, at work.  The pre-shot questionnaire asks if I have an allergy to eggs.  As, I have never been tested, I don't know if this is really an "allergy".   I asked the nurse about it.  She said that if I do have an allergy to eggs,  it could be dangerous to get the vaccine.   So, I didn't ended up not getting the vaccine.  Anyone else in this boat.   Has anyone actually been tested for egg allergy?   Any advice as it pertains to the flu vaccine?  
    • Thanks for replying. You've been very helpful and given me some ideas of trying a few foods in small amounts. I wish I had rotated food months ago then it might not have got so bad. Thanks again and I wish you well.
    • Until my recent blood test results I've been having cinnamon and mint tea in the mornings, which seemed to have a positive effect calming the digestive system (and tastes good too!)  After the first step of diagnosis with high Iga TTg I took at look at the cinnamon sticks I make the tea with and it says "packed in a factory that may contain wheat, corn etc. etc." so that I guess would sound alarm bells for many I reckon. That said I'd imagine the way most of these herbs and spices are harvested isn't exactly gluten-free friendly yet I've seen quite a few recipes using it. How are people getting around this as I can't see any specific gluten-free certified cinnamon products out there? Really could do with my tea back P.S. I also have chamomile tea using the raw flowers which may have a similar background but seem to be less of a risk somehow?
    • If I do have to go back on gluten for a bit it'll at least be a temporary relief from the withdrawal symptoms (or at least what I hope are just withdrawal symptoms). Today's returning malady is acid reflux, something I'd thought I'd seen the back of recently. Really need that to calm down as PPIs the doctor gave before were evil medication and caused 10x more problems, possibly the worst I've ever felt whilst on those so won't be going back there! Although the scales seem to have stabilised in terms of weight loss in myself I feel like I'm wasting away at present, what with the random pulling sensations in muscles and tender head area I'm just scared for what other illnesses may be laying in wait related to the celiac genes  Think I'll head back for the ESR and CRP blood tests next week as the shoulder and temple pains are really worrying me right now, could just be the gluten intolerance but the other options are terrifying if not caught early. So much uncertainty, apart from the fact that none of this ever gets fully better (if at all)...
