In Topic: Cross Reactive Foods

Interesting...do you think other things besides the grains were bothering you?? Nuts, beans, fruit?? How long until you felt relief? What were your symptoms if you don't mind me asking.....

This article explains the whole cross-reactivity concept, interesting I know..

I had to go Paleo to get relief, so maybe the article is right and I was reacting to other foods, particularly the grains. I don't know. All I know is I feel better without any grain and kind of ok if I eat a little rice. It certainly is a battle trying to figure out what you can eat the first year. Is it cross contamination? Cross-reactive foods? Things eventually settled down, but I do know the first year was a roller coaster and the most important thing I learned was not to eat things made in a facility where wheat is also processed. I didn't think I'd be that sensitive but I was/am.

Can you post the articles? I'd be interested in them.

In Topic: Refeeding Edema? Anyone Else?

Oh believe me! I've been tested for it all...since December they have taken 29 viles of blood from me. Edema was actually my intial complaint (before celiac was diagnosed). They have checked heart, liver, kidney, protein, etc...all fine. The only thing that seems to make sense is maybe that issue of malabsorption?

Could you possibly elaborate further on your complications with malabsorption?? It sounds like this might be what I too am experiencing....drinking water makes me considerably more swollen..I have only been gluten free just over a month....do you think I need to further increase calories?? Or just give it time and maybe add more protein? Sorry for all the questions...just frustrated.

I believe you need to go see a doctor. Edema can be a result of serious medical conditions, kidney/heart and given that you are a marathon runner, and you are really relying and utilizing your heart/kidneys more than the average person, you should be looked at medically.
