Got Problems With Sugar Too!Symptoms anyone?
Posted 21 November 2012 - 05:00 AM
Anyone get probs with sugar and symptoms.
It's not really coming as any suprise to me but I can't have sugar either.
I don't take sugar in drinks, etc - my only weakness is choc which I mainly avoid because of the soy. Have just been reading the soy posts and have to add more symptoms which I suspect are from the sugar.
Rapid heartbeat (got to be from sugar)! followed by chest pain on exercise (angina type but not severe) and sort of laboured breathing - kind of heavy. Add to this a sense of stressiness (new word).
The laboured breathing is while sitting still but worse with exercise.
I do not get these symptoms normally - I have had a bag of Minstrels about an hour ago - supposed to be gluten free but I have a deep suspicion of all 'gluten free' products that are out there generally (as opposed to specifically produced). Can't eat them either, so G knows why I ate the above .
I'm rambling - possibly another symptom ???

This is the end of the line with me for sugar - I have been following a paleo/scd type diet for about a week quite strictly so eating that choc made the symptoms very clear for me. It's no good, I just can't eat it - no real surprise actually. I think I'm a particularly slow learner . Luckily, I don't generally have sugar things.

I make a yummy chocolate mousse regularly - it is my go to sweet fix
Cocoa, Coconut Oil, Almond Milk, Almond Butter, Agave and a touch of vanilla in the blender.
I've been playing with the measurements for about a month - the almond milk is a recent addition and really made it creamy.
For those that are really intolerant of processed items like me -- I make the almond milk with just water and without the straining step for use in mousse and some other recipes -- saves a lot of work.
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/27/09 diagnosed fibromyalgia - supplemented with amino acids - improvement followed by substantial deterioration
maybe one good hour per day for ~17 months
8/10/11 - Elimination Diet for Autoimmune Disease - incredible improvement along with clear reactions to most high lectin foods
only remaining symptom - severe heat intolerance / reaction to heat, humidity and exercise
Tomato, Pepper, Potato, Peanut, Soy, Bean, Pea, Citrus, Pineapple, Avocado, Shellfish, Dairy, Grain, Nut and Seed FREE
3/1/12 - Horrible flare -- same ol' symptoms but worse ~ 7/1/12 - Endo: Active Celiac 3+ years - as gluten-free as humanly possible.
11/15/12 - Improving once again - Almonds back - Eggs gone
12/1/12 - Histamine containing and inducing foods FREE - finally the last piece of the puzzle (I hope) -- the cause of my heat/exercise "allergy"...
...this was one of my earliest symptoms as a child -- the enzyme (DAO) needed to regulate histamine is created in the small intestine.

I do occasionally use honey with no repercussions. My sugar issues are very direct-
I eat sugar, and the lymph glands in my neck swell up the next day like they do with
the first day of a cold, and I get very fatigued. Sugar definitely affects the immune
system. I will be grain free for a while, trying to control stress induced inflammation
right now, but will give quinoa and rice a shot in a couple of months. When I just can't
take it anymore with the no sweets, I'll either fry up some diced apples in butter and
add a bunch of cinnamon and nutmeg, or sometimes I'll make hot cocoa with milk,
honey, cocoa, maple syrup, and cinnamon and nutmeg. Probably only add a spoonful
each of honey and maple syrup. And maybe some half n half...

Thinking of you (and hoping it's just that annoying sugar!)!
