Other Intolerances Linked To Gluten
0

8 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I am gluten intolerant and have been gluten free for awhile. I have noticed however that there are other foods that my stomach cannot tolerate. i.e. dairy, certain corn products, and I cannot handle large amouts of sugar.

Is there a list or "common knowledge" list of what other intolerances come alog with being gluten intolerant? I seem to remember that I have seen such a list, however I do not have it.

I would find this helpful because I have been cleaning up my diet. I still find that I am eating something that leaves me bloated, etc etc the next morning.

Guessing game isn't it?

Will

If you have damage to the tips of your villi you may not be making the enzyme that breaks down lactose? It's best if we go dairy free at first.

Your intolerances will be unique to you, but often times soy, dairy, and corn seem to pop up as main offenders.

Sometimes you have to go low spice or limit nightshades (tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, eggplant)for a while until you are healed.

Some of us react to high salicylate foods, some to greasy foods, etc.

My best recommendation is to go off dairy for a bit and keep a food log. Write down everything that you eat..and note any symptoms you have. Many food reactions are delayed and your log will help you put the pieces of the puzzle together.

If you note having a lot of bloating or indigestion you may do well to take a digestive enzyme with food? Your problem with sugars and starches sort of points to your needing the additional enzymes.

Probiotics are another thing that most of us need to balance out our gut "flora". If you have any bacterial overgrowth it will make you bloat. Probiotics crowd out that bad bacteria.

Don't take digestive enzymes and probiotics together. The enzymes will break down the good bacteria.

I hope you can sort out what's giving you trouble..and heal fast so you can add things back in. It is a challenge isn't it?

I agree with the previous comment - everything seemed to be covered in the reply. I have been off dairy for the same reason for a year and a half and still can't eat it - although I was only diagnosed with Coeliacs last November following a biopsy. I really believe that everyone is different and shouldn't necessarily compare yourself with others as we all react differently. I can't eat a lot of sugar, fatty foods or spicy food (even mild curry which I love, and upset that I cannot eat at the moment). I don't react well to gluten/wheat free bread either. I believe I have had Coeliacs for many years and that is why I still cannot eat dairy etc., and feel sure that it's only a matter of time before my villi heals fully and will be able to introduce some food types (except gluten, obviously) again gradually. Hopefully this will also be the case for you too.

I have never heard that these can't be taken together. Can you post a source? Or am I the last to find out :lol:

Thanks.

I think you will find that everyone is an individual with their own sensitivities. In the reading that I have done, I have come to the conclusion that there is NO food out there that doesn't bother someone.

My own list of no-no's includes gluten, oats, rice, sugar (beet, cane, honey, dates, raisins, aguve, xylitol). I can eat limited amounts of other grains and starches. Tomatoes and onions are questionable. But I have no problem at all with dairy, soy or potatoes.

As I said, everyone is different and you just have to figure it out for yourself. Others can only give you clues as to what else to try.

Sorry I'm so late in getting back to you...

I was told to take the probiotics seperately from the digestive enzymes because the enzymes break down the protein in the probiotic. I found a site that explains it..if you scroll down a bit.

It depends on the person, really... For example, yesterday I was told by my father I had a leaky gut since I was a child. Right now, I can't have cashews, coffee, soy protein (I just lost my favorite chocolate :/), dairy, peanuts (yeah, the peanut butter wasn't cross contaminated) and last but not least, gluten.

Just random foods I used to eat.

So other people's experiences might help you in pinpointing what's wrong with your diet, but in the end, you have to go by your gut B)

    • Over the past month or so, I have been have a fuzzy feeling in my left ear canal. The best I can describe is it feels like there is a bug in my ear, but when ear is checked, no bug but the fuzzy stays.  Any ideas?  Or is this one of those strange neurological symptoms from gluten?  Please don't tell me you need to get ti checked out, because all the doctors will say is "There's nothing wrong, everything's normal." BLAH!
    • Breakfast on the go is always trickiest for me - I go with a whole fruit - banana, apple - or a yogurt, or a small bag of nuts.  Occasionally, I have a couple of hardboiled eggs at my local pret a manger.  Much prefer breakfast at home, where I can make myself an egg and cheese sandwich with avocado on gluten free toast.  Or cereal ;-)
    • thanks for your input, the reason I do the blood test is because I found out my duagther has it recently and she carry dq2 gene,so must be from my husband or me...im in the process waiting for my genetic test back,,by the way,I do have lots of celiac symptom,so it could be gluten sensitiive you said,thanks again.  
    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
