Diagionsed with celiac 7 months ago and just learned that I am also fructose, lactose intolerant. I was recently told I was also allergic to corn, soy, peanuts, shrimp and scallops with blood test results by a celiac GI doctor in NY.
Any advice on how to approach / manage these restrictions.
I am feeing better now that my diet is even more restricted.

I've been looking for information on multiple food allergies but find it very difficult to locate. Also looking for a brand of multi vitamins that would be soy, corn, gluten, lactose and fructose free. My search today was unsuccessful at a local health food store Mrs.Greens.

The Paleo/Primal diet is naturally restrictive of all of those foods (except maybe shrimp and scallops), so you might scout around for a book on Paleo/Primal recipes. An excellent book about this diet is "Primal Body/Primal Mind" by Nora Gedgaudas; however, there is also a website that is quite helpful with regard to recipes: www.marksdailyapple.com You can download the recipes, as well as the actual recipe books, for free--if you want hard copies, you have to pay for them.

I really sympathize with you. I also have multiple food allergies (but have had them almost my entire life): shellfish, peanuts, most tree nuts and sesame. If you have a true allergy to those foods, it's super important that you avoid them as each time you consume them, your allergic reaction could get progressively worse and could ultimately result in anaphylaxis.

I don't have a lot of advice as your allergies are more varied than mine but I hope you find some relief. Have you met with a dietitian or nutritionist to help come up with a plan of what to eat?

Thank you for the boost of support, I thought gluten free was hard, corn on top of it is not for the faint at heart. I've eliminated as much as possible, carry around my list of ingredients to avoid and try to cook very simply. Yes, will see my nutritionist in the next week or so as we'll as an allergist.
Haven't spoken to very many other people that are dealing with food allergies like these. Reading entries on this site made me realize that I'm not suffering alone. That others have managed to bring themselves back from the edge of the cliff to not only survive but to thrive:D

Hi,

Vitamin Shoppe brand or Solgar vitamins may work for you. Not sure about the corn though so be sure to ask them. Allergies are caused by proteins, so starches may be ok. Many times vitamins are held together by starches and corn is often used.

Your allergies should be retested after 6 months or so of gluten-free eating. Sometimes people's allergic reactions taper off when they go gluten-free. I used to have pretty bad hayfever but it is gone now.

My children ask if it will always be like this and I often reply that maybe the fructose and lactose intolerance will let up .
Searching everyday for Rx items without corn Mvits too but no luck yet, will keep trying:D
Lots of brands and info to sift through ...thanks for the note:)

Hi Iris,

There were some threads about bone broth soup a while back on the forum. It is supposed to be very good for minerals. Might be worth trying. Vitamins you can eat! Meats are a pretty good source of nutrition too.

It may take some time for your reactions to settle down. Mine tapered off slowly over a year or so. I used to buy anti-histamines once a week, but don't need them now. You can always tell the kids "it'll be over when it's over" in a low deep voice. That should satisfy them! :)
