Celiac With Additional Food Allergies

9 posts in this topic

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! :)

    • Do this, scientists! (experiment to confirm/deny the existence of "leaky gut")
      Good idea! Add also the lactulose - mannitol test, to confirm they are/are not experiencing leakyness in the gut, then correlate the results with the symptoms (obviously digestive symptoms would have to be excluded, because diarrhea and bloating will probably be present anyway, due to having damaged intestines). You see, ironically it would be "gluten-free challenge", because possibly systemic symptoms ("leaky gut syndrome")  and GI symptoms start after going IV fluids -> gluten-free (instead of "gluten challenge", which would be gluten-free -> gluten).
             
    • "Pre-Celiac" & scared
      PPIs should not affect your digestion of gluten one way or another. Many folks with celiac disease may have villous damage without obvious symptoms. Others eventually get symptoms after the disease is "activated," but exactly how or why this happens is not yet clearly understood. Biopsies are generally done after someone has symptoms, and likely already has villous damage, so I would imagine your doctor must be necessarily a bit vague about whether you might have "inactive" or "active" celiac disease. The gold standard is to get a biopsy while still eating gluten, and then another after being on a gluten-free diet for some time, to assess whether you heal without gluten in your system. Positive genes and blood work, AND villous atrophy would seem like fairly strong evidence, but that's up to your doctor to determine. If you feel comfortable sharing your test results on the forum, some folks here can give you their two cents. But listen to your doctor! Glutenease might help your digestion, but if you have an autoimmune reaction to gluten, it won't prevent the possible damage that comes with gluten mistakes. Research on l-glutamine is somewhat supportive for healing, but it's not a panacea.  You will read about various levels of sensitivity and prudence here and elsewhere. Eventually you'll come up with a plan that you consider is "safe," but hopefully will still let you get out in the world. Read up on gluten-free groceries and how to deal with restaurants safely, and you ought to be able to find a happy "middle-path" between prudence and paranoia. I'm one of the fairly sensitive/paranoid types at this point in my life. I personally don't worry too much about possibly breathing in gluten, but on the other hand I wouldn't eat anything that's been out where flour is in the air. Nor would I use a shared toaster or fryer. Again, it's important that you form a lifestyle approach that is informed about the risks but still a good life! Most importantly, work with your medical team to determine if you in fact have celiac disease.
    • Second Panel has come back...advice?
      We are utilizing the "our kitchen is completely gluten free" and DEFINITELY checking every label every time methods. SO glad to hear my DGP should drop!!!! 
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      Without reference ranges for the IgA there's no telling wether the IgA or tTG are anything worth while.  I think your best bet is to wait on a call from them for interpretation. I know that's hard but really, they are the ones with all the necessary information.
