Will Eating Nuts Inhibit Recovery After Going Gluten-Free?
0

9 posts in this topic

I went gluten-free (self-testing to see if it solves my chronic, unexplained stomach problems) only about a week ago and I am surviving just fine with the wonderful help of... nuts. If I need a snack, that's what I go for now. But I've seen a few people suggest that eating nuts might not be the smartest move right after going gluten-free... is that true? If I continue to eat nuts could it cause my gut not to heal from the gluten damage as quickly? I just don't want to mess up my experiment...

Eatring nuts should not bother you unless you for some reason do not tolerate them. Nuts are actually a food that is good for us, they have good quality fats and good nutrition. So long as they are not bothering you they should be a fine addition to your diet, almonds especially.

We get raw nuts then soak and dehydrate them prior to eating them to remove the phytic acid and make them more digestible.

Thank you, mushroom!

domesticactivist- Interesting idea. Soak them in what, exactly? Just water?

It depends a little I think on what form of nuts your eating. Are you getting ones that are saturated with salt and have been very processed (and possibly coated in all kinds of fun stuff like MSG or even wheat) or are you getting raw ones that are in a natural state? Regularly eating a serving of raw almonds is supposed to actually have a ton of health benefits from getting rid of a headache, improving cholesterol, to giving you energy (tons of good energizing vitamins and minerals in the skins).

What about popcorn? My 12 year daughter old can't eat gluten due to a bowel obstruction (intussusception) surgery on New Year's Eve.

She was at a friends last night and I sent her with gluten-free snacks and she ate them all and called me to ask if she could have popcorn. For some reason my intuition said no.

Has anyone on here had any issues with digesting this after recently going completely gluten-free and/or after this type of surgery?

Me too. Raw soaked and dehyrdrated nuts are much easier on a sensitive stomach. Usually you throw in a little sea salt. Use plenty of water and change it at least once partway through the soak.

I think skipping popcorn for a couple more months until she really has time to heal is a good call.

Thank you guys very much! The nuts that I eat regularly are simple, raw almonds. Now I know I should go ahead and contain using them as a snack. :)

And thank you for the soaking instructions!

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
