Hello everybody,

I've posted here before about a negative blood test (Doc just tested immunoglobulin A and Ttg IGA) but I have several "celiac" symptoms. I go for an endo on Friday but have a quick question.

Has anyone noticed eating nuts aggravating your symptoms? My symptoms were mild this Thanksgiving Holiday but started to flare-up this morning. Then I had the bright idea of snacking some almonds this afternoon and my stomach totally disagreed! I am thinking they are too harsh on your system if you are not completely gluten healed???

Any thoughts? Thank you so much!

The pieces can be hard on diverticulitis, which I wouldn't exactly call common for celiacs, but it's certainly not unheard of.

Some of us have additional intolerances. I for example, cannot tolerate almonds, although cashews and walnuts don't bother me. So it MIGHT be an intolerance, or it might just be that they are too rough on your healing system. I know some folks can't eat raw veggies at first, but cooked veggies don't bother them. Maybe you can give yourself more time to heal and then try them again?

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

Many foods can be irritating to the healing gut - or as Bartfull said - you could be intolerant of some items until you have healed. I can eat almonds, but not cashews, pistachios, walnuts and a few others.

Perhaps wait a while and try almond butter or almond flour to see if almonds are an issue or just harsh on your system right now.

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

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS


ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)

All said above. I can handle almonds, but not hazelnuts. Or walnuts, for that matter. Remember even some natural foods aren't good for a still sensitive gut... I learned it in the hard way.
