Nightshade Intolerance?
0

7 posts in this topic

Hello,

I'm new here to posting but have been reading the forum for awhile now. I have been gluten free for nearly two years due to suspected celiac disease. When I was tested, I'd already been gluten free for six months so all results said negative. I aslo had the gene testing which came back extremely low. I also have Hashimoto's hypothyroidism.

So, since having gone gluten-free, I've felt like a new person. Within three days of eating this way, my stomach felt like new. Fast forward to the last five months and I've been having episodes of diarrhea. Only in the morning, never at nights. I'm wondering if nightshades might be the culprit here. I am ridiculously careful about cc and my whole house is gluten-free. No chance of cc at all. I rarely eat out ever and if I do, it's just at PF Chang's. My symptoms are loose stool, cramps and diarrhea only in the mornings. Can a nightshade problem produce these symptoms? I have a feeling it might tomatoes and potatoes. I definitely cannot tolerate any paprika or cumin. Any insight or thoughts would be greatly appreciated! I am highly frustrated since I am so careful about the gluten and having diarrhea for the last five months. Thanks so much! :)

Welcome to the board!

I do find that nightshades as well as dairy give me those symptoms, and together...whoa! So it is possible for sure that nightshades could do that to you. I would remove them and see how you feel :D

Feel better! :)

Thank you! I seem to only tolerate peppers from the nightshade family. No potatoes or tomatoes for me, lol. Dairy is up in the air for me right now. If I have milk that's cooked in something (like muffins or pancakes) then I'm fine. But if I eat ice cream, um, things aren't good the next morning as I end up with diarrhea.

Can I ask a question? Does anyone have trouble with oats too? I tried the Bob's Red Mill certified gluten-free oats and man did I bloat up like a pregnant woman. It lasted for two days till I realized it must have been the oats since that was the only new thing I'd eaten.

Oats give many celiacs problems, even the certified gluten free oats. The oat protein seems to be a bit too closely related to the gliadin protein. The gluten avoidance trio is often modified to tack on oats as well.

What is the gluten avoidance trio? I've never heard of that before. Thanks!

Wheat, rye, barley

Oh, ok gotcha. :) I'm already avoiding all of that due to suspected celiac disease. Thanks!

    • 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.
