    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

Related Food Intolerances?

Hi all --

I was hoping that someone may have a similar experience. I've had celiac for almost 3 years now. I've been very healthy and am very careful in the gluten free foods I eat (no cheating ever!). Since my diagnosis with celiac (it was triggered during my pregnancy), I have also been unable to eat anything containing MSG.

Anyway - has anyone become intolerant to other foods after being diagnosed with celiac? Since my diagnosis, I have had a severe stomach reaction to raspberries. After eating them, I felt like there were knives in my stomach, had horrible nausea, and ending up vomiting. I made myself a smoothie last night and was so sick. No "D" like if I get glutened, but nausea and lower back pain.

Cutting out gluten is tough enough! I was curious if those of us with autoimmune disorders can continue to develop intolerances to additional foods. Is there a way to get testing for this?

Thanks -

Maureen

:)

Before I realized that my primary issue was gluten-intolerance, I found that I had very similar symptoms whenever I would eat nectarines, peaches or pears. In fact, I tried eliminating these specific fruits prior to eliminating gluten, but the gluten issue was more dominant, so I didn't really notice much of a difference. Now that I have been gluten-free and symptom-free for years, I can clearly state that those 3 fruits cause me to have symptoms nearly identical to those produced by gluten. I don't know whether scientists have ever tested nectarines, peaches or pears for gluten-like proteins, but I often wonder about that. It's also possible, however, that I just have a very similar symptomatic response to something entirely unrelated to gluten that is present in those fruits. Needless to say, I now avoid those fruits as I avoid all gluten-containing foods.

wow, thats really strange. I've been gluten-free or going on 3 years after diagnoses and fruit is about the only thing I can eat without some reaction. After diagnoses that was all I could eat for a few weeks. Granted most of the fruit I have is rather strange tropical fruit since my job is researching it in Hawaii but while working in Ca. last fall i pigged out one day on 18 peaches and nectarines at a farm I visited. (Whole bunch of figs too). Never had any trouble.

Amazing how different we all are.

You can get a RAST test done to check for food allergies. I can't eat raspberries either. I am not allergic. But I do have gastroparesis. I ate one single raspberry and threw it right up again.

Just to clear something up here, you were diagnosed 3 years ago, yet you probably have been celiac your whole life. You have been gluten free for 3 years and for some of us, once we go gluten free, other intolerance's rear their ugly heads too. They were probably always there, it's just the gluten hid them. Once the BIG intolerance was figured out and you got it out of the way, then the little ones started to pop up--that happens to many of us. Three years after I went gluten free, I found I could no longer tolerate soy, soon corn followed, then rice--I realized eventually that grains are something I may never tolerate.

I enjoy listening to Ted Talks.  I found this one on dementia.  The take?  No success in developing drugs to stop dementia, so they are looking for ways to prevent it through diet!  Food can heal!   https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=f0WCb23KPEw Interesting!
