4 posts in this topic

I am having a liver issue here..bilirubin and last night urobilinogen after a possible gluten or salicylic acid episode starting on the 29th of december. I have no appetite but i'm forcing myself to eat. I have been on a very limited diet..i dunno for sure if my problem is salicylic acid with what happened and i feel i need to go on the rotation diet to heal myself properly as well as find a probiotic. What the heck do i do? I'm finding it hard to find foods to even fill up my day unless i eat a lot of the same thing...let alone a rotation diet O_O thoughts?

Are you sure about your intolerances? I am low level intolerant by Elisa test to 49/60 things I am eating. I still can eat each of them and am doing really well on a rotational diet. Make sure nothing you are getting is cross contaminated with gluten. It is so confusing at first to know what exactly is going on. From my test I also learned 11 foods that I was eating that I was making no antibodies for. These I do break rotation somewhat with. You can't have a rounded diet without protein, fat, and veges. I can maybe show you my rotation diet, but you can't have one like it with only 6 items.

Protein foods : Fish, beef, chicken, pork, lamb, bison, poached eggs, yougurt, or cheese

Veges: (brocolli, cauliflower, , collard greens, kale, and brussel sprouts), ,(legumes, string beans, lentils, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, carob, peas, white beans) (sweet potato, carrots, squash, zucchini, celery, fennel bulb ) (beets, swiss chard, spinach)

My "flours" Buckwheat ground by me (I haven't found storebought not cc) walnut, hazlenut, pecan, macedemia, Nut flour, (ground in blender and put through a sifter, ) Almond flour, coconut flour.

fruits apple, banana, mango, papaya, kiwi, cranberry, blackberry, pears, blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, oranges, peaches, grapefruit, grapes, apricot, plums, figs, dates, cherry (sweet and tart), watermelon, cantelope, avacado, tomato, rhubarb, pineapple there may be others to try at the store. Try a new one, you are not likely to have antibodies to it. Check its family though.

Oils (ghee) (coconut oil) (Olive oil)

For each meal I have 1 protein, l or more veggies, 1 flour and one oil. Sometimes I have a small amount of fruit. If I make a little pancake I spread a couple of bites of fruit on it for flavor. YUM

You may not tolerate some of them, but if you only eat it every forth day, perhaps you can get by with it like I do. Your body sure needs to rest. When I started my diet, I felt better in four days. I have not relapsed yet, even when I got diarrhea from something I ate. I mean my foggy fatigue stayed away, and I could live with the other for a short time.

I hope this will help you, or someone. I do hope that if you really feel you are so limited in your diet that you will find help, or try one of the really limited diets others are on like paleo. I don't know what else. Either that or I hope you find a health practioner that can help you identify more foods you can eat, or how to get out of your food crises. I felt I needed that until recently. AFter I did the rotational diet, supplements, and pancreatic enymes I feel better. I am coming down with a cold now, and I hope I will lick it much faster than my cold that was before the changes I recently made.

Wendybird GET Better,

Diana

Problem is salicylic acid limits the diet...GREATLY. More so than gluten. Can't eat half of those lists. Not having dairy. Coconut and Olive oil are high, A lot of the veggies are high all fruits except perhaps pears are ok...this is really becoming a burden. I'm pretty sure it's more than likely salicylic acid because my stomach upset started from sniffing peppermint and ginger young living essential oils on my husbands aunt's suggestion and turns out they are high in sals. I've done a urine test and my bilirubin went way up again...so frustrated :(

I answered this in reply to your PM, but I will post here as well.

You can try the Failsafe Diet.

http://failsafediet.wordpress.com/

of course, it goes without saying, but you have to eliminate the gluten grains, too on that list!

Works very well for taking out any potential foods or additives that may be bothering you.

I know you are very anxious to get well, as I once was too

but you really, really have to try and calm down about what

you think are "potential" issues making you sick. You simply cannot get glutened or sick from food aromas if someone is cooking

in your house (as you asked on another thread)

but you could well have felt sick after sniffing oils IF you have a chemical sensitivity.

An environmental allergist can diagnose this problem.

Just try it for a month. Take walks. Get some fresh air.

Hope this helps.

    • Itchy skin
      Cool compresses may help a bit. Hot baths or showers used to really aggravate my itchy skin so go with warm or cool ones to see if it helps. Keep well hydrated both inside and out. Be sure to check and make sure any lotions you use are gluten free. Shea butter, olive or coconut oil may help. Since you say this is not DH, no blisters etc. I would not advise Dapsone. It is quite a toxic med but if you do talk to your doctor about it make sure that they do blood work before prescribing and frequently during the time you are on it.  Some celiacs have liver impact and Dapsone can be damaging to the liver. I also had both DH and the all over itchies. Being strictly gluten free and avoiding obvious sources of iodine like iodized salt or iodine in supplements will help you heal. I hope you get some relief soon.
    • Where do I start??
      I will be going for my endoscopy on Februry 19. The other day in reading about Celiacs, I read about the strange rashes often associated with celieacs and gluten intolerrance. About six months ago, a rash exactly as you describe showed up on the backs of my knees. The doctor didn't know what it was, hought maybe it was ringworm, and gave me some topical medicine, and the spots did go away with time. However, I've had the same type of spots show up in other places occassionally. I know for a fact they were not ringworm.
    • Advice on reintroducing dairy.
      I can!   Start with hard cheeses, then yogurt/butter, soft cheeses and finally milk/cream.  Start slowly and build.  Give yourself time to get your body to release the enzymes necessary to digest lactose.  Certified gluten-free enzymes for lactose can help the transition.  Lactose free milk and ice cream are helpful too.  Remember, that genetically some of us are predisposed to being lactose intolerant no matter what (e.g. aging, race).   I wish you success!      
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?
      Here is a link that explains why you should get tested (completely) for celiac disease: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/diagnosing-celiac-disease/diagnosis/ As far as the link to the functional doctor....why?  If you get a celiac diagnosis, chances are you will heal on a gluten free diet.  As you have probably seen on this forum, most of us encourage newly diagnosed members to eat a whole-foods, easy-to-digest (a.k.a "cooked to death")  gluten-free diet to speed healing.  Going Paleo might not be the best right now, if you have celiac disease.  Eating lots of nuts, raw fruits and veggies can be tough on a damaged gut.  You can try that diet later!   Everyone is different due to various degrees of damage, so some may have temporary intolerances  (e.g. lactose).  You just have to experiment.   Save your money and spend it on good wholesome food.  I heartily support getting away from the SAD (Standard American Diet).   Celiac disease is the one autoimmune disorder that is healed by avoiding a food -- gluten!  
    • Itchy skin
      I have DH and itchy skin is a symptom.     Your Dermatologist could write a script for Dapsone, provided you're not allergic to Sulphur.     Expect blood labs to go with using Dapsone.      You need to study everything that goes in your mouth for possible gluten content, including all meds.
