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??

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
