Problems with Apples

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I had an apple this morning - a pink lady to be exact - and I can't believe how nauseous it made me. I've been eating Honey Crisp forever with no problems. Why all of sudden are apples making me sick? I was actually feeling somewhat better until that darn apple. It took me a few hours before feeling a bit better. I'm still not feeling as well as I did this morning, but better than when the apple first hit me. Why is this happening? From what I've read, apples should be good.

I've eaten apples my whole life and about 2 yrs ago (been gluten-free since '06) for some reason apples made me sick. I can have 1/4 of an apple with no problem. My kids would get diarrhea from apple juice as children and now we all are sickened from cider, raw apples, etc. Onions and garlic are in the same family but they don't cause a reaction in any of us. I miss apples but it's not worth the pain. I wonder if I'll be unable to eat other foods I enjoy now in the years to come???

I found all high glycemic fruit used to make me feel sick if I ate more then 1/4 of one. Apples, Grapes, Plums where the biggest offenders. Ended up learning this past month it was due to UC and the fact the fructose and other sugars caused inflammation in my intestines and the pressure etc was making me sick..... Used to think it was just bad gut bacteria causing it.  

I also have developed a allergy to plums, and peaches, I get really bad drainage almost immediately even with just things that use the natural flavors without the sugars.  Oddly enough cherry flavor and almonds which are in the same family do not bother me at all.

In your case it could be a issue with the sugars, the wax coating they put on the apples, a sudden allergy, or a new food intolerance. Wait a few days try again, then try with a different kind a few days later, if same issues try with high glycemic fruits in the same gram amount like a big bunch of grapes. Basically you need to do a elimination diet and write down the results to narrow it down.

Been gluten-free for 17 mos. Apples I always peel the skins, then eat the flesh, lots of times I have apple sauce and actually my body reacts quite well with the sauce. You need to see what works and what doesn't. Right now your body is changing and it's getting use to the different flours that your using. Be patient and enjoy the foods you can eat.
