Can Eating Nuts Make Your Symptoms Worse?
Posted 26 November 2012 - 01:26 PM
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!

Celiac 1st diagnosed as a toddler, in the 60s. Docs then, between bloodletting & leech-tending, said "he'll grow out of it" & I was back on gluten & mostly fine for 30yrs.
Gluten-free since 12-03
Dairy-free since 10-04
Soy-free since 5-07

gluten-free since June, 2011
Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.
Nightshades now seem to bother me too.
BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

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.

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 -- probable 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.
