Two Months In And Food Intolerances Are Growing! Why?
0

5 posts in this topic

So, I am two and half months in after being "labelled" NCGI. I was given Aciphex to control the extreme acidity and erosion of my esophagus and told that my other symptoms would start to improve after a couple months. Unfortunately, that has not happened. Instead, itseems my tolerance for foods has lessened. A month after my negative biopsy, I realized, I had become intolerant to dairy - something I had expected to a point given the state of my gut. However, I figured that would be the end of it, hopefully! Because of my dairy intolerance I thought I would try the So Delicious Coconut ice cream - definitely delicious and no ill effects. This past weekend I saw they had a no sugar added variety and because of my diabetes, I figured that might be better than the other. I tried it two nights ago and was okay that night but later on, not so much. As an experiment to confirm it was that food that had given me the problem, I ate it again...same issues. I'm trying to figure out whether it was some added ingredient in the NSA variety or if it is the So Delicious brand in general. I have heard people have had reactions to the carageenan in that, but figured I was okay because I haven't reacted to the yogurt that had it in it or the first So Delicious brand I tried. However, maybe like everything else, I am growing intolerant to that too.

I guess my question is, is it normal to have growing food intolerances two months into the gluten-free diet? If so, why? All I know, is that it becomes very frustrating to have to keep adding foods to my do-not-eat list. :(

It is possible that you are better able to distinguish food problems now. That seemed to be the case for me. You get one big culprit out of the way and your body isn't overwhelmed with that anymore. Then it is more able to alert you that something is wrong with what you are still eating. I also had cross contamination problems that kept me feeling low and withdrawl. Give yourself time to cope with these. Keep refining your scrutinizing and making it better and better.

Keep at it! You are on the right road. For every food I haven't been able to eat anymore, I find two or three things to substitute with. I have used almond milk, coconut milk, and hazlenut milk for example.

It seems odd to me to have too much acidicity in your stomach. I take a little hydrochloric acid to help with digestion.

Get well***

Thanks for the help. :) Hazelnut milk sounds really good - I've never seen that in any of the stores near me though :(

Hi there

I'm 5 months gluten free (just), I have had SO many allergies and intolerances since I began gluten free. Dairy was the first, soy next, then eggs, citrus fruit (caused terrible asthma and bad ezcema), quinoa (asthma again), and now corn (which is really upsetting me as corn is everywhere)... Recently had a few reactions to corn, just like eating gluten :( the reaction last night from blowing up a balloon or baking my son's birthday cake (don't know which it was?).... So yes, it's very possible to have growing problems with food intolerances and allergies.

I've had some great advice on here though, and some great people on here keep telling me to hang on in there. And that's precisely what I aim to do. It's hard. I'm currently depressed about corn (very recent intolerance)... I keep wondering how much food I will be able to eat... I'm vegetarian too so it's very difficult.

But... On a day to day level, I feel ok! And isn't that wonderful! My energy has picked up since taking iron etc feel much better generally. So something must be right?? I also gave up smoking and sugar when I went gluten-free. My poor poor body! I just keep telling myself that my body has gone a bit haywire and is just rewiring itself (and sometimes getting it wrong for a bit)!

It's hard to be positive, don't I just know it. But it's the only way. Some of the guys on here are an inspiration with their positivity... So I figure they are probably right...

Good luck, have a good rant on here! I have been on here all day complaining!! Makes me feel tons better!

Grrr. Because out digestive symptoms are drama queens. Just when you think you get it, it all changes on you.

I hear it gets easier, so hang on. When I feel sad, I read the Crohn's boards and thank my lucky stars.

    • Japan (Tokyo And Kyoto) Gluten Free
      i would  tend to agree with your mom and that comes from more than  30 years in and out of Japan. the  quality of the produce, meat and fish tends to be much better than the US  becsaue it gets to market  much faster and becasue there is a demand  for quality  above the demand for low price.  As it was pointed out, this  has  nothing to do with gluten.    There  are  alot of things you can  eat  in just about any restaurant  but there are things to learn like onigiri -- rice balls,  are seemingly innocent  but  90% of htem contain wheat starch.  most larger  grocery stores and  department store basements  you can  get  gluten free soy sauce. ---  most  chefs still assume that  soy sauce is soy  so never  take anyones  word for it when it comes to soy sauce. Of al the mixed  salads at  family mart, 7-11 and lawsons  only the gobo salad was  safe. good luck    
    • Gluten free backing food
      We are prepared for earthquakes at home, in our car and at work.  That means keeping tins of sardines, gluten-free cereal bars,  SPAM, nuts, chicken, fish, rice, etc. in our earthquake kits.  I have to go through it every three to four months to rotate out some of the foods (e.g. cereal bars).  I mark it in our planner.  It works for us.  Tasty?  Appetizing?  I bet my kid will be thankful to have food to eat in the event of an emergency.  
    • Blood sugar, hunger, celiac
      How much fat are you consuming?  Going lower carb and not adding in fats can make you hungry.   So, do you know that Type 1 diabetes is strongly linked to celiac disease?    I would ask your doctor for a GAD antibodies test to rule out type 1.   https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/celiac disease-and-diabetes/ http://www.celiac.nih.gov/CDandDiabetes.aspx   I basically eat to my meter and that translates to a Low Carb High Fat diet.  Keeps my doctor happy with my lab results!

      VERY good point cyclinglady, very good point!!!!
    • Even gluten-free Foods Triggering Reaction After Initial Glutening?
      I was glutened in July.  Badly.  I have NO clue as to what got me.  I suspect two things 1) a gluten free store- brand, product that might have been mis-labeled and 2) a prescription generic medication (contacted the manufacturer to confirm a gluten-free status but got the old liability statement of no guarantees).  Both items were NEVER consumed by my gluten free hubby who acts as my canary.     I probably got glutened again by eating out while on vacation even though I only at at restaurants recommended by other celiacs.  The rest of the time I was at my parent's house and I have a dedicated kitchen there for us.   Who knows?  But I was sick with anxiety, tummy issues, vomiting, the works.  It was strange since anemia was my original symptom and I really did not have tummy issues at the time of my diagnosis.  So, celiac symptoms can evolve at least for me!  Six weeks after my first sign of a glutening, I was tested by my new GI because I was not getting well.  He thought I had SIBO or bile duct issues. I asked for celiac blood testing.    Turns out it was gluten all along!   During my glutening, I became lactose intolerant again, could only eat stewed foods because everything hurt to get through my digestive tract.   I was a basket case for three months.    Did I mention new problems resulting from my glutening?  Hives, itching, vomiting, passing out and tummy aches almost daily.  Anti-histamines helped.    My GP thinks I am her most "allergic" patient.  Except it was more like a histamine intolerance or a mast cell issue not allergies.   Who knows?  The hives eventually resolved as I healed from my glutening.    I refuse to test the two items that were suspect.    No way!    Three months later, I got dairy back.  Six months later I am eating gluten free anything....without any issues.  I also do not take any meds (except for Armour Thyroid) , supplements, eat out and I avoid even processed gluten-free items.  But, I feel great.     I suppose that I will eventually slip up and get glutened again.  But I am working hard not too.  I like feeling well.   So, really look to your diet.  I bet you just keep getting glutened.  Stick to whole foods, follow the FODMAP diet and wait.  Wait.  Wait.
