Yeast Intolerance/allergy
0

7 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone could describe their personal experience with having both gluten and yeast allergy??

Is there a difference in your symptoms? Do you avoid yeast just because of its strong attachment to gluten products? Was anyone possible gluten intolerant/allergy but turned out to be the yeast?

for me i guess it all started out with an intestenal infection, how im not quite sure on that one, but since it made me so sick i was in the hosp for a week , i had a colonoscopy and that chalk type drink with xrays and blood work,then sent to a allergy dr he said i tested that i was allergic to, wheat, soy, dairy, birch ragweed ,grass, and all the cross foods, with the birch rag and grass (oh lovely just great)with this intestenal infection i have developed leaky gut with over groth of yeast in my system so i was put on a yeast free diet

when i was going through all this i was thinking i had celiac ,as it is in my close family and i went gluten free and when i was first getting sick i went lactose free then gluten free and still feeling sick then went night sade free feeling a bit better but now i find that if i get any of the allergy type foods like soy gluten lactose or cross foods i get sick im having such a hard time trying to find foods to eat other than yogurt steak burger red meat hurts big time night shade makes me joints hurt so bad im couch bound for days as the same with gluten big D happens with that

and soy i sound like racheal ray with broncitius lol when there is any soy or soylethin in products i have lost 30 lbs so far yes i am lighter but good god my guts are tendar and its so hard to find foods to eat that are soft on my guts

so frustrateing and what is more frustrateing is that i can not go out anywhere for supper mother in law made roast beef carrots corn and potatoes and invited us over for supper well i ended up staying home cause i could not watch everyone enjoy this meal.

now im at the point where i can only eat yogurt haddock chicken cauliflower aspargus agave nectar is wonderful stuff coconut milk blueberries grapefruit sea salt pepper basil ginger garlic onion apples almonds

if i eat anything else my guts hurt and feel raw i hope these guts toughen up soon this is getting annoying

well thats my story thats an on going battle to figure out what my body can or can not handle

i also have family members who seem to think if you feel sick to your stomach take gravol if you have heart burn take nexium or something like that tums even if your stomach hurts get a RX take a pill for this or that i really feel that takeing pills for a raw hurting intestines and stomach is really not the answer

so there ya have it :) thanks for listening to me complain and explain lol

I am a lot more understanding with allergy sufferers - it isn't "complaining"! Nothing worse than others who don't understanding or think you are hypercondriac.

I'm in my early days of trying to sort out what works for me and only this past week accepted that it might be months or years. I worked in a bakery and got sicker and sicker over those 9 months so I think the build up of poisoning and illness will mean I need to go slow. The most frustrating is exhausting sinus infections that last for weeks.

I am eating & feeling better without the glutens but now cringe at anything with a chemical number in the ingredients. Can't do me much harm to avoid those I guess.

The more I read on this forum the better I feel about it all.

Just curious. If you're allergic to dairy, why are you still eating yogurt? Doesn't it cause you lots of problems? I do understand about family members giving you grief. I've been told my whole life that my gut problems were all in my head (doctors and family). Finally, we have tests that can prove it.

I'm actually pretty convinced the majority of my problems are yeast related and not simply gluten. It all began in 2008 and I took myself off all sugar and most carbs. Started to get better, but not completely. Fast forward a few years and I started to get an itchy skin rash - thought it was DH. Derm says it's not, but I took myself off gluten anyway. Started to feel better and skin cleared up. Then I found all kinds of super gluten-free substitutes (against the grain baguettes anyone??) and I'm feeling terrible again and my skin rash is back. I've never been able to follow the yeast diet fully. No sugar and No carbs of any kind for weeks?? REALLY?? I'm going to try to cut out as much as possible, but winter is coming. But I've noticed the more carbs I eat, the more depressed I get. I need to find the willpower to break the cycle - ideas??

    • Hello I'm happy to join, any help is greatly appreciated as it can be difficult by times for sure. Unfortunately, I have been told my doctor has definitely not been doing anything correctly and very backwards about Alot of things. I live in canada, and there are celiac support groups I have found but I am about 2 hours away from any. I live in a pretty rural area. Although,  I have still received some help from them , they prefer a diagnosis before helping out to much. My doctor has me on a waiting list to see a gastrointestinal specialist but whenever I called her office to inquire about an appointment time I was told there was a very long wait and that I was considered to be a non emergency. So I am waiting to get an appointment. I have seen a dermatoligist for some of my rashes and she said it was dermatitis and gave me different creams for them.  It is frustrating because I don't know how to go about getting a actual diagnosis besides this biopsy. I was told to request a different specialist, but supposedly there is a waiting period for most in our area. 
    • Thanks for all of the replies. I've just found out I'm not getting to see a dietician because of not having a definite diagnosis which is another blow. I've had loads of bloods done but they just say they're all normal. I did have low vitamin D and high parathyroid but it's sorted itself out after a course of high dose vitamin D and they're not checking it again for a year. No chance of getting referred to endocrinology, gastro won't do it and neither will my gp. I've tried giving up coffee and all fizzy juice and it hasn't made a difference. I'm exhausted and scared and still have no clue what to do next. My gp has zero experience dealing with this type of thing - last time I was there she said it could be because I've restricted my diet too much and I should eat more gluten-free replacement products - everything I've read online says this is the worst thing to do! I'm asking for a copy of the last blood results this week so I can go through them myself but other than that I'm pretty stuck. 
    • I really am iffy on talking about this side of my gluten issues, I think I am about to ruin my reputation on this forum coming about as some extreme crazy guy saying this but I wanted to get this off my chest and perhaps see if anyone else might share a similar trauma. I get emotional recalling it, this side of my reactions, as it is most ingrained and very traumatizing experience, and I am not proud of it as the mentality I have now disgust me but I am going to come out about it. One of the scariest things in this world is when your own mind turns against you, when you can not think about what you want to think about, when you can not do what you know you should be able to do. When I got glutened really bad these where things I felt with my own mind would start looping, and thoughts would not come together. I would loose comprehension, feel like I know I should be able to think about something but my mind was not working. The same thing looped over and over and over like a broken record, This led to anger, anxiety, depression, panic, top it off with loss of feeling in my hands and feet, and the pains in the gut......it was a nightmare. I would go as far as beating my head against walls and punching them out of frustration as to why my own body and mind where not working, I just wanted it to end the pain to stop. I still have scars on my fist from punching into a nail in a stud once and kept going.....I scared everyone and myself distanced my self from loved ones. And started running a bucket list accepting that I was going to die soon. Hell to this day parts of the brain damage seem to be permanent as I can no longer do computer programing or some forms of math, they just no longer make any sense or connect. Then we learned what was causing it, and once the symptoms started to fade, I would get very angry if someone in the shared house did something stupid and got me sick again. The fear of going back to that caused violent and drastic actions to get away from what was making me sick. The sheer fear of my own mind turning on me led me to drastic actions to prevent it, throwing everything away I thought could make me sick, making sure no one else used that kitchen, used freezer paper and gloves when fixing my foods and working in there. I really destroyed and burned all bridges I had then and alienated myself from others. In the end it motivated me to learn how to cook, to get and renovate my own apartment in a building downtown, and start a business to pay for my new diet, by selling safe food to others with this issues locally at farmer markets. But it changed me on a very deep level, that traumatic experience to this day I have a issue looking at others and dealing with other humans who eat that stuff.......the stuff that breaks my mind and body so horrifically. If I have to compare it to something its like watching aliens drinking antifreeze and eating poison.....it causes a subconscious level of disgust and slight envy. I really can not even look at the stuff without recall what it does and feeling a twitch. I know I am the alien here, but it feels vise versa, and I look down on the normal people as odd creatures.  I go to the store and find myself overly avoiding contamination, keeping stuff in my own bags, asking the cashier to scan and bag it as I pass it not letting it touch that flour I see on the belt. I am hyper sensitive to the stuff I know and that fear semi dominates my mind as crazy as it sounds.  I am recovering and am forcing myself to try to mingle with other humans overlooking that one thing, but that deep rooted trauma still flares up as a protective measure especially around foods.  I could talk on and on about the other side effects but this one is the hardest to talk about it, and I feel others might be able to relate to it.    
    • Time.  You need time to heal.  Yeah, I am like a broken record!  😄 So...Lycra is your best friend for now (that and old baggy sweats!).  Hang in there!  Hugs!     
    • So far dairy seems to be OK, as are eggs. I like canned chickpeas so will carry on with those. Beans I had ruled out at one point with the doctor's recommendation to go with the low FODMAPs diet but will reintroduce those now I know it probably wasn't that causing the problems.
