Help With Elimination Diet!

Hi again!

The MetaMetrix test results are confusing. And last week when I was looking for answers why I'm allergic to Soy and Legums more then dairy and gluten. Or so it says in this paper. The doc admitted the blood tests are [NOT as accurate] as the scratch tests.

I have never been tested for celiac disease because the colonoscopy (sp) the gastro doc was clueless said I had a spastic colon. And got annoyed when I questioned him about celiac disease. The next guy I went to said, "I know you have it and you know you have it save your money." Thank Gog he retired. I'm back on a mission to find a celiac disease doc that knows something more then I do.

Kaiti's a doll! Thanx --- She emailed me the blood test to ask for for my Auntie on a feeding tube... It will help both of us. I'm going to the lab for blood work for my thyroid later today. I'm going to see if I can have this done too. I just think the MetaMetrix test are helpful but I really question its' accuracy.

As for the elimination diet. They list here things that are on the list that I'm allergic to. I think it's just a form they print and send out to everyone.

Argh.. that rice diet, scarey!

Makes sense though, about not drinking with food, least I think so.

But no orange juice? *cries* That'd be the only thing I'd be drinking, besides water.. LOL.

Hmmm.. I tried looking for white rice, seems to have added stuff. Blecky. Few different brands did. So got some brown rice instead.

Don't like the idea of cutting out salt though.. would like to keep sugar and brown sugar too. Experimenting now with baking apples. Think that could make an elimination diet more fun. Yeah, haven't quite started it yet.

Umm.. question to anyone who knows. Are there apple allergies? Apples, depending on the kind.. would always leave my stomach, like unsettled.. like too acidic, maybe? And eating crackers, cookies, bread, etc.. afterwards would make it feel fine. So I doubt it would be an allergy? Of course, those things have to be gluten-free now.

And Banana's should be bad. They are an allergen? Cuz that would cut out my normal breakfast then, a banana, lol.


yes according to tcm, banana is a hard work for liver.

I did not read everyones replies, but the first thing that caught my eye was the orange juice - some of them contain barley as an additive, so be careful what orange juice you buy.

I've done some elimination diets and they are very helpful, I stopped eating soy, and I am lactose intolerant, so dairy was a big one for me.

The one thing I learned this past year is that it does take a long time to heal. I was eating some gluten by mistake and I think I finally have it all out of my diet. I am finally starting to feel like myself, the real me. When I am glutened I get lots of abdominal issues and some depression issues.

Good luck.
