Onion Intolerance

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

This is an opinion and only comes from experience. I am a nurses aide and have worked in the food service industry for seven years. I love food but always had those issues of eating certain types. Mainly dairy and onions. No issues anywhere else unless it was too much sugar and caffeine. Dairy almost instantaneously gave me the rolling gut of death either end was horrifically preparing for pain. Most of the time anything with whole milk was to blame. Then after passing on onions since I can remember from being young. I tried chives loved them and began eating healthier incorporating onions into my diet wondering what was causing IbS acid reflux abdominal pain. Well cut onions and dairy out and within two days I was back to perfect. So I dug and dug actually went about six months eating vitamins greens and probiotics even got CBD oil. Eventually after almost a year of research and experiences I came to the realization that activated charcoal, boron, and a multivitamin became staples to my high metabolic diet. I'm 5'11 155lbs and have been for three years. Before I would jump between 140-155 like crazy feeling drained wore out and unhealthy most of the time. Now with boron twice a day activated charcoal twice a week and a multivitamin and a eat what I want diet I've never felt healthier and stronger. Be aware of your surroundings or mold, mildew, dust, stress. These all play a roll in many different ways. I can drink beer again without feeling like I have a cold or sinus infection. I would lean more towards Boron for stabilizing the process of my diet. Most produced foods and farms have been turned over so much there no boron in the soil, and then you have hydroponics and genetically modified foods that lack these natural elements our bodies need. I do not take prescription medications or over the counter medications anymore since I started taking Boron. I did start off with 18mg a day for the first month then tapered off to 4-6 mg a day. Research the process of boron on the human body balances testosterone and estrogen helps bind heavy metals and excrete them. Hope that this helps (used to be on ADHD medication as well as nexium and pain pills for my back) now I am free! Cured!

Let me remind you that you are posting on a Celiac website.  Celiacs CAN NOT DRINK regular beer. And there is NO CURE for Celiac currently!

What does this have to do with celiac disease?

I don't know if anyone else has mentioned this possibility- I have fructose malabsorption in addition to Celiac.  Onions have fructans (a fructose molecule) and cause a bad reaction as you described.  Other foods with fructans are garlic and wheat.   The fructose malabsorption means I can't eat fruits/veggies high in fructose - but if you notice that you are having also having reactions to garlic and/or watermelon, strawberries and apples- consider this possibility.  It is diagnosed with a breath test OR elimination diet

(I know I am necro-ing an old thread (2010, wow), but I'm just now doing some research.)

The last three weeks (a Saturday, a Friday, and a Friday), I have had a weird response to something I ate (sorry for excess detail):

1) Horrendously gassy - can hear the gas churning from across the room, can feel weird shifts in my gut as the gas pushes its way through my intestines, yuck!  (Side effect, besides flatulence: complete emptying of the bowels, but not exactly diarrhea.)

2) Unable to sleep - not just because I'm getting out of bed every 45 minutes to return to the toilet, but actually feeling mentally charged up.  (Which is really weird, because I am *always* tired, chasing after 3 kids, 2 jobs, and trying to have some personal time.)

3) Consistent need to urinate - basically, every time I returned to the toilet due to the gas, I felt like I had at least a half-full bladder as well.

 

Now, the first week, I assumed it was some stupidity on my part.  I was with my brother-in-law and some other friends for my birthday, and he laid out a fantastic spread.  Marinated flank steak (with fresh garlic cloves), Mediterranean "garlic paste", baked vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, and whole onions), Girl Scout Cookies, Oreos, tortilla chips... an evening's fuel for games and good times.  Added to that three Mike's Hard Watermelon, and a Diet Mountain Dew.  Then we were up until 1:15am, and a 45 minute drive home.... and I spent the rest of the night pretty much in the bathroom, finally able to get some sleep around 6:30am.   I have been "off" caffeine for 2 months now, so the Mountain Dew I thought could have been the wakefulness issue.  I avoided most gluten (though I did have tortilla chips for the garlic paste), and had no dairy at all.  I did use garlic paste to snatch up loose garlic cloves from the steak...

Week 2, an end-of-season sports banquet.  Salad, vegetables (no onion, was thinking that might be suspect), rosemary pork, chicken and capers, roasted potatoes, and some really thick and delicious cookies.  No caffeine, no alcohol, but a "virgin Shirley Temple" with lots of sugar.  No broccoli, no cauliflower, minimal dairy in the chicken, no idea what might have triggered the response.  However, I did overindulge, so I thought that might be an issue.

Week 3, catered Qdoba at work.  Small beef tortillas with shredded cheese, and guaccamole. On my last one, I pulled some green peppers out of the "fajita-style veggies", which of course includes onions.  This is lunch, mind you.  Dinner was a couple organic hotdogs (normal buns, a single slice of cheese broken up to put on the two buns), and a glass of Baileys, around 6:30.  Nothing afterward, not even water.  I was wide awake when my wife got home from Girl's Night at 2am, and having the same symptoms all night, finally getting some sleep around 7:15 am after half a slice of pumpernickel toast.

 

WTH?  Are these the same types of symptoms other people are having from allium intolerance?  I put Garlic Salt on almost everything, always have.  We add garlic cloves to meals every week or every other week.  Onions aren't a common ingredient for us, but I have always had sauteed onions on my steaks when we go out.  I'm lost and confused on this, and I can't afford another weekend that starts with no sleep!

For a Celiac, you should worry about all the gluten you are eating.  No wonder you have all those issues.

On the onion intollerence. Yes when i eat them i sweat them out immediately and become itchy all over. One dr said they were sulferic. I ate alot of onions, garlic and olive oil with gluten pasta before i was diagnosed. To this day things i ate with gluten are intollerent for me. After 10 years i have been able to expand my diet from my elimination diet but i attribute that to the healing of my gi.

Well, I don't have those particular issues the other 6 days of the week.  But that is a fair observation.
