Spicy Foods And Cd
0

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.

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
