Topics I've Started

A Few Questions About Histamines

14 August 2011 - 04:06 PM

If histamines are causing my insomnia, would benadryl help? I've taken benadryl for sleep and it it didn't help.

Also, meat is suppose to be fresh. Does it have to be cooked for every meal or can it be cooked and frozen? Sounds like a lot of work to cook fresh meat for every meal.

Olives are on the list of foods to avoid. Is olive oil O.K.?

For those of you on a low histamine diet, how long did it take for you to notice it was helping?

The only histamine foods that I normally eat are meats that aren't freshly cooked and olive oil (if that would be a problem). Reading the list of foods really made me hungry for sauerkraut!

Candida Because Of Food Intolerances?

13 August 2011 - 03:59 PM

I've tried the candida diet and used natural antifungals. With each antifungal, I had die off so figured they were working. The candida always came back.

I started Nystatin and have die off symptoms so feel it is working. I tested intolerant to almost all food so can't avoid it all. Also, I can't avoid all the foods that are the normal breeding ground for candida or once again I'd not have enough to eat. I am avoiding all added sugars but still eating some fruits, starchy vegetables and brown rice.

I'm wondering because of all my food intolerances if candida is always going to cycle back. Is it going to be a vicious cycle from now to eternity.

There Is Nothing Left To Eat.

13 August 2011 - 03:41 PM

I am beyond frustrated!

I've been off gluten a couple of years. I had further improvement with my digestion when I started the digestive enzyme Creon about three months ago.

I still don't sleep and feel absolutely wrotten all the time so had food intolerance testing once again. I was hoping with the digestive enzyme that I would show fewer food intolerances and be able to avoid the problem ones. I found out I am intolerant to almost all food including dairy, most meats, lots of seafood, fruits and vegetables. My doctor said he has never seen anyone else with so many intolerances.

I was told to continue to eat the foods that showed up as mild intolerances as I need to eat something.

This poses another problem. I need to take lots of supplements and medication. I make sure all are gluten free but most of my supplements and medications must have corn in them. The Creon contains pork. My multivitamin also contains lemon biflavonoids and soy. Since I never feel good, how do I know if these things are bothering me?

I can't give up the supplements as I need calcium, magnesium and vitamin D for parathyroid issues. I also am low on iron, chromium and zinc. I don't get enough variety of foods so need to take multivitamins and multiminerals.

I also don't think cross contamination of gluten is an issue as I had severe D before I gave up gluten. That isn't the problem anymore. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

A diet free of dairy, meat, fruits and vegetables doesn't leave much left. Wish I could exist on just water.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Questions About The Digestive Enzyme Creon

23 June 2011 - 12:15 PM

For those of you who have taken the digestive enzyme Creon, did you have to stay on it long term? I've read that some people have only taken it a few months.

I know everyone is different but would like to hear about your experience with it.

Does Anyone Know If Pancrecarb Is Gluten Free

01 June 2011 - 03:21 PM

I've checked online for the gluten free status of this medication and wan't able to come up with an answer. I'll check with my drugstore once they get it and are able to fill the prescription. I just want to be ahead of the game.

I suffer from fat malabsorption. Pancrecarb is the first digestive enzyme I've been prescribed. I've tried a few gluten nonprescription digestive enzymes and they just made things worse. I am guessing I'll have the same luck with a prescription but am willing to give it a try if it is gluten free.
