In Topic: Newly Diagnosed: I Can't Eat Anything

I am sorry you are suffering like you are. I was drawn to this post because I have a very limited diet and I know how hard it can be. Coupe of things I noticed right off the bat I'd like to share with you. One important thing is to know how long it will take to heal! Way longer than you think. Patience is key. You do also seem all over the place as far as reactions. I also think you might have food allergies or another issue. I have celiacs but I am also allergic to 7 other foods. You may benefit from keeping a very simple diet for a week and then try new things one at a time. Keep a food diary too. Your moving around too fast to see which hurts and what you can eat. BTW, the bacon could not be gluten free! Some are, most are not.

I would go see an allergist and find out if you have any food allergies. I wish you all the best and remember...many of us are still healing years later. It takes time.

Thank you. I have kept a food journal for 2.5 years :) Didn't tell me anything since I have that issue every time. I won't "really" know what the cause is but I don't see any difference between lectin avoidance and elimination diet.

I do have good news! After one day of lectin diet I had a normal digestion this morning!!! Been a LONG time since that happened. Why exactly...not sure. I know things are looking up and that makes me happy. My digestive enzymes came today so I began those today too. Probiotics are on the way also.

So in a way, I won't know if it was corn or soy or what until I begin to work them back into my diet after 30 days. I know it's not the veggies though, at least not the ones I had yesterday from my farmer. Good to know even those can come into contact with wheat. For crying out loud, what doesn't?? :)

Now I'm just hopeful tomorrow morning goes as well.

Thanks again!

Wow I sure do have questions. I was a little alarmed to see so many of my current issues associated with high lectin foods and how many foods I can't eat already on that list! One list of high lectin foods say no mushrooms other ones say you can eat mushrooms. I would love to try this but I am having trouble finding a reliable list of foods to avoid. I did read up and I understand how there is a level of lectins in almost all food so the varied list I get but I do need somewhere to start. So far I have this: no eggs, sweet n hot peppers, tomato, potato, eggplant, beans including soy, nuts, gluten, dairy, processed foods.

Rice is a grain but is it a high lectin grain?

I also bought some digestive enzymes. I am feeling hopeful again :)

Thank you everybody :rolleyes:

Thank you. I am thinking something else might be wrong too. I have had my thyroid checked-came back fine. I have a few over use injuries (from working out) or that's what my doc thinks. My PT (phycial therapist) thinks it might be something more like RA because I am not responding to thepary. But that has nothing to do with digestion right? My head is spinning.

your may need a digestive enzyme more than probiotic..Also, what are those "few, safe, products"? Around here i see it recommended to stay totally unprocessed at first, quite a few don't do so well with "gluten free" processed foods. Also, what about dairy? good luck.

I can't have any dairy, casein is the protein of all dairy :( The few safe products I have are usually canned/dried beans, lentils, quinoa, gluten-free soy sauce, and sardines/tuna. Are there more than one kind of digestive enzymes? Is there a brand everyone seems to tolerate best?
