Parents With Intolerance

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Both my parents are passed , I was a change of life baby :) But I was talking to my sister who is in TX. I am in MI. She is a few years older than me. Well when I was telling her all my Celiac problems and my Corn intolerance , she told me that my dad could not eat anything from a can. I never knew that! That makes sense that I am having all these problems!! I knew my mom always made stuff from scratch , I just figured she was a wonderful cook! Now I know, altho she was a bread maker , Dad ate alot of bread. Altho I don't remember my mom eating alot of bread. Ever wish you could go back just to watch it all over again? I think back now thinking my mom probably had Celiac, with her bone problems and Big D problems she always had. But to find out my dad couldn't eat anything canned. I think they both had some problems. And I may have inherited from both sides! I am the only one in my family so far with all these problems, well except my Daughter. But nieces , nephews and stuff not a one. My sisters are all ok. Just me my 1 daughter and her son so far. Guess we are just lucky! Huh  :blink:

I got double DQ2 and Double DQ8 with no known relatives with celiac.  We do have many diabetics.  I think others in the family have celiac, but nobody tests positive.  I am hoping for better testing soon.  I am afraid to have more of my children tested, the ones that have what might be symptoms blood tested negative.  I insist any symptom might be celiac, but they insist it can be something else.  I am currently watching Mom die.  I think she began celiac after back surgery.  If the doctor tested, either it was negative, or nobody is telling me.  They are giving her vitamin B, vitamin d, and magnesium.

I was at my Christmas dinner and of course everyone has to talk about my diet. Or ask me if I want something (Like meat balls) I said no but when they were talking my Niece said her husband thinks he might have a problem. Not related to me at all. But I told him to look up the symptoms and get tested. It can only get worse!! If you have Celiac.

Hugs to you, desperateladysaved. I hope your mom improves.

I wonder about my Dad. He died of pancreatic cancer when he was 42... Young people do not often get that one and I know it is linked to celiac disease. I also remember him having a nap everyday after work. As a kid I thought nothing of it but now that I'm about the same age as he was, I know it's not normal.

My mom has a minor (few symptoms) gluten intolerance. She's changed her diet a lot and has cut gluten from at least 95% of her diet - impressive for a 70 year old lady. :)

As for the genes, I would guess I have the double but don't know. On both sides of the family we have celiac disease, p,us RA on one side and thyroiditis on the other.

Wow nvsmom , you have it from every corner!! You know I just set and think of things and , you know commercials , the ads on bill boards  and signs, all for Mc. Donalds or some other FF restaurants, Or my husband watching all the cooking shows. Everything has either Gluten or corn or something that I cannot eat.The stuff that is added to our food is horrid! I sometimes cannot stand to see juice drinks and stuff for kids anymore! just all the junk food out there. It is amazing! What at least the Americans put into our bodies.

My parents drive me nuts!  They tell me that I was allergic to any and all milk as a baby and yet I was forced to drink milk with almost every meal.  They only stopped making me drink it after a Dr. suggested that it might be causing my acne.  My face didn't clear up.  It did get better.  And my stomach got a bit better.  Prior I had constant tummy trouble and big D that was so chronic that I was on a prescription med for it.  The problem?  Both parents when they think of milk, think of a glass of white liquid.  No matter to them that it was in other foods they were having me eat.  Bread, mac and cheese, ice cream, gravy.  And I know now that it only takes a speck of something to make me ill.

 

My brother?  He was little.  Loved Quisp and Qauke cereal.  Ate them daily.  Had some sort of a reaction but I was 4 or less so I don't remember the specifics.  I only remember the Dr. telling my mom to try him on one cereal for a week then the other and figure out which one wasn't good for him.  She did do that and stopped feeding him one.  But...  One was corn and the other wheat.  Would seem clear to me that one of those things was likely the cuprit.  And now that he is an adult, Hunt's ketchup makes his ears water and he gets big D whenever he eats at a particular restaurant.  I did too but it is a pizza place and I would suspect cheese to be the problem there.

 

And both parents?  Love to live in denial.  Recently my mom said that my dad had an allergic reaction to some kind of seafood.  I can't remember what.  Crab or Lobster.  And he is chronically blowing his nose and also has chronic big D.  I did notice while he was in the hospital and unable to eat while they sorted things out, the nose blowing stopped.  But seriously chronic.  As in can easily go through a huge box of Kleenex and then some in a day.  That used to be me.  Stopped dairy and eggs?  No more Kleenex.

 

My mom has said over the years that she is allergic to this and that and then she will still eat it.  Have a reaction and beg us never to let her have whatever the food is again.  Then if we try to stop her, she goes all witchy on us.  Then she eats whatever it is and wonders why her head hurts or why she is sick to her stomach.  I don't want to hear it!  I know accidents happen.  But these are no accidents.  She is willingly eating the food.  Says she can't help it.  Says she craves these things and can't stop herself.

 

Me?  Anything that I know makes me sick is something I will do my best to avoid.  I won't even eat a food if I can't tell what's in it.

That does sound crazy!! Jeeze!! Yea I never heard a complaint! At all from my parents nor do I remember having problems as a child or teen, I think it just happend to me a few years ago. But I just think I was too young to know what my parents problems were. My sister knows some but you know! No canned goods? Pffttt it's almost no info to me. But I do wonder!! HFCS? Was it in stuff back then? 30/40 years ago??
