For People With Intolerance To Nuts.....

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Well, of course, I tried eating nuts again because I keep thinking that it's in my head that I have a problem with them. Then I thought, well maybe it's just peanuts...or cashews....maybe I can have raw almonds? So I tried them, and since then, my gut has been completely swollen and just doesn't seem to go down. I had them on Sunday. I had some back pains and stomach pains yesterday, Sunday and Monday, and today that part is better, but my gut is still swollen. Sometimes, it takes me only a couple of days to get back to normal, sometimes longer.....but I'm just wondering, for those of you that have an intolerance to nuts, do you also get a horribly swollen and bloated stomach? And if so, how long does it usually take for yours to go away? I don't have gas or anything. No heartburn, still having normal bowel movements every day......just so extremely bloated! (I'm going to Miami for Memorial Day weekend and I don't want to look like a pregnant woman in a tiny little bikini!)

Thanks!

Does it happen with seeds also (like popcorn, flax seed, etc?)? Have you ever been checked for diverticulitis?

Here is a link:

It might be worth looking into. Keep in mind also that pecans and walnuts (nuts) are in a different family from almonds (peaches), peanuts (beans), and cashews (cashew family-mangoes and pistachios).

Thanks! I didn't know that.....I knew that peanuts were like beans, but the other ones, no. Hmmm....I don't if those other foods bother me because I never eat them. Thanks for the site, I'll check it out. I was feeling good for about 3 weeks straight, for the first time, not one symptom. "(Eating just fruits, veggies, meat, fish and rice cakes) and then I added those nuts and here I go again.

Actually, this is creepy because it really sounds like me. (The description of Diverticulitis). Everytime I get this problem after eating nuts, I also get a bladder infection, or what feels like one. They talked about that in the complications. Wow! If this is what I have, it says it usually clears in a few days with a liquid diet.....the only thing is that I can't drink juice because of an intolerance to corn. If I blended up water and fruit myself....would that work just like a regular liquid? I mine as well the liquid thing for a couple of days. Anyone know anymore on diverticulitis?
