Brown Rice

Does brown rice bother anybody else? I had some tilapia, brown rice, and green beans last night and my chest and belly were on fire.

I can't eat brown rice anymore either. I used to when I first went gluten free but now it goes right through me. I have no idea why. I remember reading a few weeks back about brown rice having arsenic or some other poison in it, but I can't remember. I just took note that that might be the problem, but I doubt it in my case. There are a TON of things that never used to bother me but do now. And most of it doesn't make any sense to me.

Are you sure it was the rice ?

We always rinse off fish, chicken, and meat before cooking it. The local grocery sells their tilapia in the unfrozen display case both plain and breaded ready-to-cook, right next to each other, <_<:ph34r: so I don't get that stuff anymore and instead use the frozen packaged kind.

It could have been the fish. My grandmother had made some for me previously and I was fine. Second time it has happened when I cooked it.

Haven't eaten it since I've went gluten-free. Though I did buy some which was certified completely gluten-free, so when I cook it I guess I'll find out :lol:

I'm not a big rice person anyhow.

My worst food intolerance is to brown rice. It gives me severe stomach pain two days after eating it, and pain lasts for almost a week. Also causes major C. I can eat white rice every once in awhile, but I don't think it gets digested very well.

I suggest trying it one more time to see. This is a tough intolerance to have since most gluten-free processed food contains it (bread, pizza crust, pasta, crackers, cereal, etc)

Now that this is posted.... I bet that brown rice has been a problem for me, by making me feel lousy... I get cramped and have pains, sometimes severe in my stomach for a few days... I didn't associate it from brown rice.. I just read online about ground growing foods and groundwater containing arsenic and selenium... It says brown rice consumed twice a month may be ok.

    • You already have an autoimmune condition which does put you at a higher likelihood of developing other conditions in the future, not necessarily celiac.  At any rate, I've been reading reports-- both research articles and anecdotal experiences from AI patients-- linking a gluten free diet with relief of symptoms, particularly a lessening of joint and muscle pain in those with RA, FMS, Lupus, and Chronic Fatigue.  So my point is, even if you don't have celiac disease, if being on a gluten free diet helps you, then stay on it.  As for the digestive issues, it may be worth seeing a GI for.  Lots of things can cause tummy troubles, not just celiac disease.
    • It is absolutely possible for non-Celiac gluten intolerance and/or gluten sensitivity to cause extreme symptoms. The difference between those and Celiac is that Celiac will cause actual small intestinal damage to the villi, while NCGI/gluten sensitivity can have extreme symptoms, there is no damage to the small intestine.  Other causes of bloating can be SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.  The title pretty much says it all and you need antibiotics to help combat that. Basically, your small intestine's bacteria is out of whack and you have more bad bacteria than good. I know there is a test but have no experience with this. You may want to google it and read up on it and maybe ask a specialist about it too?  This is something they should be testing for anyway to figure out what is going on.  You could also have food allergies, as opposed to an intolerance like Celiac.  You can see why this is so hard to figure out sometimes! Are you sure you are completely gluten free?  This diet has a big learning curve and cross contamination is important.  Please take a look, if you already have not, at this link.  It was written by a previous member of the forum and although it is a bit lengthy, it is what you need to know about following the diet and living gluten free successfully. She did a very good job on it!  Even tiny amounts in your diet can still cause symptoms. http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ Have you been tested for vitamin deficiencies or anemia?  These could offer a clue to see whether you are malnourished or not. Many people with celiac have both deficiencies and anemia.  Between testing for these and genetic testing to see if you carry a Celiac gene might help you to rule it out if you cannot have a scope done.  But you do remember that you need to be eating gluten for the scope? 
    • Celiac disease is a tricky rascal. Just when you think you've got it under control, it sneaks up and manifests into new and often unexpected problems. At least, this is what we have found over the last decade. From contacts with others who have Celiac disease, we know we're not alone. I'm in my early thirties and find that sometimes my body acts more like that of an old man's. View the full article
    • Thank you, Gemini.   Is it possible for non-celiac gluten sensitivity or intolerance to have this severe symptoms?
      I'm on gluten free diet two weeks now and no change... What are other causes of these symptoms beside food?
    • I am trying to decipher the test and it looks to me like the Total IgA is fine.  Your number appears to be in the middle of the reference range, which would be sufficient IgA for testing.  I am in America so your country's testing is a bit different from here....I really hope I got that right!  If you have severe enough symptoms of a GI problem, some doctors here would move onto a biopsy even with negative blood results.  I think if you cannot get a full Celiac panel done, then a scope with biopsy should come next. Severe bloating has a cause and they need to rule out a food problem. There can be other causes but food is usually a big trigger. Yes, keep us updated!  We are here to help.
