Reactions To Non-Gluten Food

28 September 2013 - 07:58 AM

Hey all, first time poster.

I have been gluten free for a little over 8 weeks now following a Celiac diagnosis. 

After about 2 weeks in I started getting mild to strong allergic reactions to all sorts of food, being a vegetarian for 14 years this limits my diet immensely. 

Things I have been reacting to:
Pinto Beans
Black Pepper
Peanut butter

I eat very little processed food, with the removal of bread I eat next to none. I check labels and ingredients obsessively on those few that i do eat.

Is this normal when you are new to a gluten free diet? I am at a loss, at every corner there is some reaction lurking.. I also suffer from GERD if that factors in at all.

I have been eating avocado, cucumber, garbanzo, broccoli, banana, and lentil as they are the only foods that i have found i can tolerate. I love fresh food and don't mind a restricted diet so that is not a big problem for me, I am more worried about these new reactions.

Has anyone experienced this? Will it go away after a while?

Thanks in advance, much appreciated.
