Eggs?

I had been able to eat any eggs -- the lectin content is my problem -- it has NOTHING to do with gluten.

Eggs are a wonderful food and should not be given up without a trial -- and if you fail a solid trial then you should trial each egg yolk and egg white.

I'll have them back in my diet just as soon as possible.

I am sensitive to eggs but I believe it has nothing to do with my gluten sensitivity.

We have chickens and feed them some wheat. It is an inexpensive and easy to obtain grain with a high protein content. I have nothing to do with feeding the chickens and they also eat hay and free range stuff. I am hoping to find an appropriate feed without wheat, but surprisingly it really does not seem to be a problem for me. I am so thankful for that. Eggs were one of the 11 things that I had no antibodies for on my IGG test. I poach several every morning and my blood counts have been excellent! My cholesterol is okay also. They are so easy to cook and quick and yet so healthful.

Subjective proof I have it is okay:

No hives

No fatigue

I have energy

IGG tests negative for egg antibodies

I expected to have a problem with eggs; I have eaten them nearly everyday for 5 years, but amazingly all is well between eggs and I!

Has anyone ever just been concerned about what's ON the egg? Egg cartoons always smell like shit or rotten milk or something else gross as it is. Well, the cardboard ones.

If I thought I was getting glutened from eggs I'd wash them (in the shells of course) and my hands thoroughly after handling them, and probably keep the cartoon in a plastic bag too. Then seen if I still had an issue with them.

(man! I rarely venture into the Super Sensitive forum, but this thread was worth a peek!)

I also have trouble with eggs on their own. Seem to be ok in baked goods, but not as the main ingredient. Even so, I've switched to mostly vegan baking since my man won't eat eggs on principle.

I don't think it's a gluten thing, it's just that a lot of us seem to also have issues with eggs, just like a lot of us have problems with dairy, soy, etc.

While grain-fed chickens aren't going to make gluteny eggs (or gluteny chickens. I hope!), what chickens are fed must have an impact on their nutritional value, etc. Organic, free range eggs are just bigger and better all around...

Oh, and whoever those doctors are who test for celiac then don't reccomend a gluten-free diet? WTF?

All I know is I eat eggs, I feel nauseous and shaky in an hour. Not worth it.

Exactly! I likely do not belong here on the super-sensitive sub-forum as I am just figuring out how all of it applies to me at all but, I can tell you that egg sensitivity to either or both egg components, yolk or egg white, is separate for at least some ppl from a gluten allergy perspective... or maybe a predecessor or component for some along the way towards all this garbage.

I developed an egg white sensitivity years ago (30) when I was pregnant with my second child. Ppl tell me I am crazy and that, as a heart patient, I would be better off being sensitive to the yolk with all the cholesterol. With increasing years, I have learned to trust my own body more, despite the nay-sayers. It is deifinitely the whites for me. In cooked foods it sometimes works out ok for me.

I do not even tell the flu shot folks that I react perhaps every third time to the annual flu shots (that contain egg white) because, well, not having the shot carries more risks for me than the topical reaction/irritation.

Anyway, I did appreciate the info from Scott R and wonder if he is simply reporting on a precursor or coexistent condition like fat intolerance or intolerance to spicy, grilled food in some ways (both of which I have had for many years).

I still thank you all for your informative posts even if controversial.

    • Three years ago I lost about 40kgs (Aussie lol) by better diet & exercise. All was going great til I stopped losing. I upped my exercise but bizarrely started gaining weight. One night a week of not being able to sleep soon became two, then virtually every night with either 1-2hrs tops or none at all. These weird symptoms started about two years ago, becoming worse in say, the last 9mnths. Then I started to get diarrhea. Occasionally then weirdly 2-3 days with multiple occurences then a day or two with nothing, then back to loose & offensive. My GP ran tests, including the TTga (hope that's  right) antibody blood test. Negative so he tells me that's not it. After 9mnths of this he shrugs and says, "I don't know what it is I've run out of ideas what ideas do you have?" Finally refers me to a gastrointerogist.  Private, of course and can't really afford it but we (my fiance and I) go. Stools and blood samples are ordered, basically bye, see you in a month. I have looked my symptoms up and they seem to point to Celiac. Today we went back. I have been having bloated stomach, sore back and limbs,  lovely burps, constant urination and crushing anxiety attacks folowed by depression (which I have never had before in my life). Admitted over the last weekend I didn't sleep for two and a half days and found myself hallucinating and crying to just be able to sleep. Mr fancy pants gastrointerogist says," Hey great news, the stools samples rule out parasites and Crohns!" I tell him how excrutiating the last month has been to which he replies, "It's not Celiac disease, (points at negative blood test results). Celiac doesnt present with diarrhea, anxiety and frquent urination all together." I also had a fecal occult blood test which showed positive & notes say are maybe due to a lower gi bleed, and a ct scan that says shows some damage which, in their words, could be due to a condition such as Celiac disease. He has booked me for a double scope as the next step, has a few ideas what it could be (won't tell me because he doesn't want me to be 'anxious'). Told me to consider that all these symptoms could be me just worrying and being anxious. Told him when this started I was not worried about anything, shrugged and said, It could stil have happened, hey, sometimes we never find out what causes it and your just stuck with diarrhea forever." Then as I was leaving he slapped me on the back and said, "Don't worry so much, see you soon." I need to have the scopes done but is it me or are the things I was told today not true?  I would honestly love it not to be Celiac disease but could he be wrong?
    • Sigh. I totally do love the packs of stretch pants at Costco though...
    • hey, i'm vegetarian and gluten free as well
      have you tried making any recipes with cashew nuts like cashew cheese or pasta sauce? they're really good, easy to make and an excellent way to get more protein/iron
      i can send you some of the easy recipes if you like  
    • Right, fistulas or fissures are usually associated with Crohns, but not celiac.  It is not impossible to have both conditions though.
    • Bravo for being strong enough to bring this topic up.  Depression, anxiety, and other mental or neurological issues are common in celiacs and those with NCGI.  Science is finally catching up to what many of us have already known to be true.   http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3641836/ I have suffered from anxiety and still have some neuropathies.  At first I blamed menopause (that alone can make you crazy), but my symptoms tend kick in after a Gluten exposure and improve as I heal.   You are not crazy!  Gluten can cause so many problems.  What other disease requires that the patient be in charge of "medicating" and caring for themselves?  Most of us after a diagnosis get a "Well, just avoid gluten.  Lucky you that there are so many restaurants that offer a gluten free menu!", speech from our doctors.  We never get time off from thinking about food, our next meal and will it be safe?  Our relationship with food changes dramatically and it can be exhausting.   We do need more resources and support from medical, but for now, at least this forum is helpful!
