Good list, and thank you for sharing it. It would be great if anyone else with only a handful of foods they can eat without problems could post their safe foods, too, to give everyone else ideas. I'm going to go try fennel now!

A cousin of a friend has severe fructose malabsorbtion, and your list is very close to his. He can eat: exclusively grass-fed bison; rice; fennel; and one other thing I forget. He has only four foods he can eat total, apparently.

For what it's worth --

My list:

rice (soaked overnight)

soaked polenta (soaked overnight)

tuna

almond milk

Wow! gluten-free baked goods

homemade pickles

ginger

-- I tried supposedly "wild Pacific salmon" and that didn't work out at all...but it was smoked with a glaze, so maybe that was why.

-- Almonds are difficult on my system, but almond milk is OK and I'm planning to try soaking the nuts to see if that helps with digestion.

-- Eggs cause malabsorbtion and so does bacon -- I think it's the fat (not allergic).

My youngest daughter had such an extreme celiac beginning... she spent more than a year eating nothing but:

eggs

white rice

cauliflower

plain chicken and salmon

apples

And this list took her months to figure out. She reacted to every class of veggies, most fruits, and anything processed. She's finally able to eat lots more foods, but will always have a lot of intolerances... no dairy, several veggie and fruit classes, and others. But she's doing so well and is so healthy now!

    • I haven't seen my gastroenterologist for a few years.  I was diagnosed celiac and have been gluten free for more than 5 years.  I've been having trouble again for the past 6 months or so.  I've done a full elimination diet and have come up with the culprit - eggs!   I did a search of the forum here and have found it's not uncommon for people with celiac to develop a sensitivity to eggs.     I can forego eating eating eggs but It's getting to be flu season.  I was planning on getting my flu shot today, as usual, at work.  The pre-shot questionnaire asks if I have an allergy to eggs.  As, I have never been tested, I don't know if this is really an "allergy".   I asked the nurse about it.  She said that if I do have an allergy to eggs,  it could be dangerous to get the vaccine.   So, I didn't ended up not getting the vaccine.  Anyone else in this boat.   Has anyone actually been tested for egg allergy?   Any advice as it pertains to the flu vaccine?  
    • Thanks for replying. You've been very helpful and given me some ideas of trying a few foods in small amounts. I wish I had rotated food months ago then it might not have got so bad. Thanks again and I wish you well.
    • Until my recent blood test results I've been having cinnamon and mint tea in the mornings, which seemed to have a positive effect calming the digestive system (and tastes good too!)  After the first step of diagnosis with high Iga TTg I took at look at the cinnamon sticks I make the tea with and it says "packed in a factory that may contain wheat, corn etc. etc." so that I guess would sound alarm bells for many I reckon. That said I'd imagine the way most of these herbs and spices are harvested isn't exactly gluten-free friendly yet I've seen quite a few recipes using it. How are people getting around this as I can't see any specific gluten-free certified cinnamon products out there? Really could do with my tea back P.S. I also have chamomile tea using the raw flowers which may have a similar background but seem to be less of a risk somehow?
    • If I do have to go back on gluten for a bit it'll at least be a temporary relief from the withdrawal symptoms (or at least what I hope are just withdrawal symptoms). Today's returning malady is acid reflux, something I'd thought I'd seen the back of recently. Really need that to calm down as PPIs the doctor gave before were evil medication and caused 10x more problems, possibly the worst I've ever felt whilst on those so won't be going back there! Although the scales seem to have stabilised in terms of weight loss in myself I feel like I'm wasting away at present, what with the random pulling sensations in muscles and tender head area I'm just scared for what other illnesses may be laying in wait related to the celiac genes  Think I'll head back for the ESR and CRP blood tests next week as the shoulder and temple pains are really worrying me right now, could just be the gluten intolerance but the other options are terrifying if not caught early. So much uncertainty, apart from the fact that none of this ever gets fully better (if at all)...
    • You're welcome! Good luck! And if you get nowhere there, remember, the higher you go, the nicer they get. Skip straight up to the top brass.
