Dh & Probiotics - Sals Or Iodine

54 posts in this topic

Tart indeed! :P

I added a bit of stevia to it. Otherwise, it is just like sour cream to me. :lol: :lol: Good on taters!

Mango is one of my favorite fruits EVER. I ate so many of them in FLa last month (along with other sals )and I may have overloaded my system. When I get glutened ---or overdo the sals, etc.-- I BURN in my skin. From head to toe--a deep radiating burning sensation no one could explain to me. (until my DX) It's horrible.

You guys get itchy and scabby. I get itchy and oozey little sores on my scalp and this insanely intense burning in my skin --so bad I could not wear clothing at times. It made my life living hell. I had it for nearly 4 years until it subsided. I asked the doc about this and he said it is just like a pre-cursor to the blistering. The derma layers are affected, but I do not erupt. I hate the burning....ARRGH!!

So, I feel for you guys with DH; I really do. :(

BTW

I think you may notice....the sals websites are never the same :rolleyes: in their lists of high-low foods.

YUK. Don't like the sound of that burning skin! Sounds a lot like getting a really, really bad sunburn. Floridian here. Grew up eating mangos off the tree. Love them! I might not be able to resist a spoonful of the mango flavor. I get the itchy blister, which turns to oozy sores on my scalp & then finally, eventually, they get scabby, oozy, itchy, burning. Takes 4 -5 weeks for them to resolve. I agree, yours is precursor if not the real thing!

Yes, I've noticed the diff. in the sals websites. Hard to make a call sometimes.

Glad you found some yogurt that will work! For what it's worth, Failsafe diet allows vanilla flavor. It also allows natural maple syrup. I bet that would take the edge off plain yogurt. I like plain Fage better than Chobani. Grab it if you ever see it becasue it's really mild and good.

Looks like I'll be eating a lot of vanilla yogurt then. Thanks! I've never cared for maple --- I know -- weird --- but I may just have to learn to like it. You know, I was so excited to find the Chobani that I didn't even look any farther. I will look & see if I can find Fage. Thanks Skylark.

The burning nearly drove me mad. It was exactly like a bad sunburn--that is how I described it to everyone! I felt like I had hot liquid running through my blood and my skin and scalp were bright red and peeling. It was really weird. It has calmed down a LOT.

But, now, if I eat too many sals, histamine-type foods, amines, sulfites, MSG, food additives, I get burny all over again, my eyes swell, I get migraines and I feel like I am a stuffed sausage. If I get CCEd, it is worse :blink: I tried explaining all this to dozens of medical professionals, but they just looked at me like I was nuts.

The only one who believed me was my NEW wonderful GI doc. He said without question, "That is inflammation from the celiac/gluten and it affects your skin as well. It will die down in time."

I cried because, finally....it all made sense.

Lucky you! Florida. I was just there last month. :) Our first vacation in 5 years. It was our "victory vacation"--me rising up and coming back from the dead. :)

What an appropriate term "Victory Vacation". Brings tears to my eyes.

Yeah, we cried, too--for joy...as I walked on the beach. At one point, I could not walk the length of my driveway or get in/out of the shower without assistance. I had such extreme exhaustion from anemia, shortness of breath, vertigo, ataxia and horrid joint, nerve and muscle pain from loss of muscle mass. I was told to get a scooter, take medications, live with it. I refused. I knew there had to be an answer for the dozens of symptoms that had evolved.

Never say die, squirmy girl! ;)

Healing happens.

Oh, I know. Remember, I come from a line of Dutch people & who is more stubborn than Dutch? The people who were stubborn enough to build dykes capable of holding back the North Sea. The North Sea which is feared by the most experienced sea captains. The North Sea which is vicious & mighty & has a strength of untold proportions. These people hold it back & steal land from the mighty sea.

You girls are adorable!

I'd love to hear what you guys eat and cook. The sal/iodine is so restrictive so maybe you can give me some inspiration??

Here's what I'm eating Diane ---- about half way down the page. And I might add that the milk & cheese I'm eating is from a local dairy & has less iodine than anything I can get at the store.

Here's what I'm eating

SQIRMY GIRL!!!

Wanted to tell you!! Alex told us about soy free mayonnaise on some thread? (which I can't find because I have my hands in about 3 or 4 dozen threads and I'm all over the place :lol: ) and hubs found it at the supermarket!

I have made my own mayo, but I don't wanna anymore! I want Hellmann's, dammit!!. :lol: :lol:

Well, Hellmann's (aka Best Foods) makes a canola oil mayo. NO SOYBEAN OIL! (they make an EVOO one too, I hear)

and she was not kidding---it's almost the same as regular mayo. I was skeptical, because I tried the Spectrum canola oil mayo--and I do NOT like that taste at all. Blech!!!!

But, this tasted pretty darn good!!

I am having an egg salad sammy today!!! yaaaay!!

Geesh, the littlest things make IH happy.... :)

If you cannot find it down there, tell me and I will ship you some. (Not kidding, I've done it before. No one should be deprived!)

LOL! You're so sweeeeeeet. I have it on my grocery list for Monday & will look for it. If I can't find it around town then I may just take you up on your offer to ship me some.biggrin.gif

Ohhhhhhh, egg salad sandwich. Ohhhhhhhhh....... Soon, very soon I will do it. Hum. Maybe for my after dinner snack tonight!

And yeh, I don't want to make my own Mayo either. Biggest problem is the shelf life of it. But I did grow up with us making Mayo fairly often & it was YUMMY! But when we didn't make it ---- HELLMAN'S!!!!!!!!!!!!

What does EVOO mean?

Enjoy your egg salad sammy!biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif It's the little things that make us happiest right? Right!

No, no not lazy. I like learning the shortcut talk. I had an idea it was something to do with olive oil but couldn't think it out.

Hum. My egg salad sammy tonight will have to be with the crappy mayo with soy in it so I'd have to be very stingy ---- think I'll wait for Monday. It'll be that much better then.

After so many conversations with you now, miss squirmy, I am thinking it may be best that you and I do NOT live too near each other? :lol: :lol: :lol:

I have this feeling we could get into some trouble together. B)

    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
