Introduction Of All New Grains To Our Bodies
0

5 posts in this topic

As we figure out the different things that we can and cannot eat, I think we need to realize that we are introducing so many new things to our system at one time. We have rice flour, tapioca flour, buckwheat, amaranth, nut flours, bean flours, corn starch, soy flour, flax seed and so many many things. And yet, some of us still have problems with stomach and abdominal issues. So, I guess, I think we should slow down a little bit and introduce these things slowly so that we can tell if some of these new things are bothering our insides.

I am in such a rush in todays world to fix everything and be able to substitute what I need to in my diet with new things, I might die if I don't have bread or pretzels or snack items! ;) I want to be like everyone else and eat what they are eating or at least substitute something so that I can fit in. As we all know, food is a huge social item in our culture and by God I want to fit in. But at the same time, as I mentioned above, we are introducing so many new things at one time to our bodies. So for the next month or so, I am slowing way down. My mother had a wonderful quote when I was little, "Everything in moderation."

Thanks for listening!

Hi BamBam,

Good thoughts! :)

I never thought about the fact that we are intrducing new foods to our diets and what ramifications that could hold. Maybe that IS why some of us still have digestion problems. I mean, some of the flours I use now, I never even heard of before. :huh:

It's funny..."Everything in moderation"....I've always said too! :lol:

I think I read somewhere that guar gum and xanthium gum are not digestable. Has anyone else read that? And isn't tapioca something of a laxative too? Maybe that's why we still have issues. There are too many days when I have 6 or 7 bowel movements and to my mind, there should be only one... <_<

I've been giving this some concern as well. I'll give you an example of what we found. After my dd stopped nursing we put her on organic cows milk. Then her Dr. suggested we try organic soy milk and we did. She didn't tolerate soy and I became a little concern about some of the things I had read so we switched to almond milk. Now after being tested she is allergic/intolerant to dairy, soy and almonds. We're now doing rice milk and on occasion DariFree. She's not drinking a great deal of milk but I found that she gets rice or rice flour almost daily. I've been wondering if a rotaton diet would be effective to use while the body is healing but I can't seem to stick with the menu I plan. :blink:

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
