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)

    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.   
    • Hello we got her biopsy results back and they are normal.  The doc is calling her non celiac gluten intolerant and lactose intolerant.  Now we will just wait to see if the gluten-free diet helps her.  She does have elevated IgG to casein and wheat  I know there is controversy on whether that test is helpful or not but either way we are hoping she gets well going gluten-free    
    • My family was out camping earlier this month to our favorite lake.  They have a restaurant there we have going to for years.  Since I recently went gluten free, I was very nervous about trying out their menu.  Usually, restaurants have a select few items you can choose from that are considered "gluten-free" (i.e. Olive Garden).  However, this restaurant even had French Fries that were in a separate fryer than the rest of fry population.  I considered it a huge treat when they not only went out of their way to make sure you could get sandwiches gluten-free, but also had French fries and a dessert available.  The best part of it was I didn't get sick afterwards.  Yahoo!  Thank goodness it's 3 hours away.
    • too many of us are treated this way, unfortunately   ^^^^^  and many of us have been in the same (no quality of life!  always sick! )  situation and yes, it can be life threatening if left untreated.  so glad you're feeling better   no thanks to the almighty doctor  i have a celiac diagnosis and my g.p. (who i go to - or used to go to - for my check ups, see how my blood pressure is, vitamin levels, etc.  normal maintenance, you know) tried to give me viberzi!!  for my ibs-d !!  what???  i have celiac.  i was furious!!  (i'm still pretty upset)   o, the good news was that he gave me a coupon for the first month.  after that, it's THIRTY DOLLARS A MONTH.   not to mention all the lovely side effects (one of them was diarrhea!!)   no, thanks, buddy....   anyways, rant over lolz - welcome to the forum!
    • Those numbers are all perfect meaning they show you likely don't have celiac.  Those tests are very accurate IF you are eating a normal diet of gluten.  You must be eating gluten for weeks prior to this testing.  So if you have not been then yes these results are not accurate.
