I Am Gluten Intolerant,are The Symptoms For Rice Soy Peanuts Dairy And Eggs The Same As For The Gluten?

Recommended Posts

I am afraid now of what else i can or have become allergic too, because I see that it seems that alot of people are allergic to more than one of those plus gluten, and want to find out if the symptoms are the same. With gluten i have gas constipation pain in sides and abdominal areas,weakness,fatigue,missed periods,pale poo,headaches and nerve problems. I stoppped eating dairy but still eat eggs peanutbutter and soymilk. I have not recovered because i am new to all this and making mistakes all the time with the gluten. I just found out today that some ketchups are bad like hunts which unfortunately I had been using.Now I'm wondering and afraid if those other items are going to affect my healing,i feel so awful all the time,i just want to get better,i have a wonderful life besides all this family friends husband and child, pets. Because of this though i have become very depressed and I hardly can enjoy anything else,it's very debilitating,I just have to cry sometimes to release my frustration. My dr doesn't seem to know much about all this and I actually was the one who went on the internet and diagnosed myself,after months and months of drs visits and an ultrasound and cat scan came out fine. Also Can anyone tell me if there is medicines to help flush the gluten out faster? or natural herbal remedies? Thanks so much

I know it is hard. And I am sure you really want to get well.

So the easiest thing to do...well the best thing....is to eat very simply foods that are easiest to digest: plain meats, veggies, fruits, eggs, pure spices, squashes, root veggies for starches. Stay away from grains, dairy and legumes for a little while (soy and peanuts). Then after you feel better...you can reintroduce them one at a time.


GLUTEN FREE 4/4/08. LEGUME/SOY FREE 5/15/08. YEAST FREE. CORN FREE. GRAIN FREE. DAIRY FREE. I am eating all meats, eggs, veggies, fruits, squash, nuts and seeds. I just keep getting better every day. :)

Hi thanks for your rseponse.I had to cry a couple of tears wheni saw I had a response. I just found this site today and am so relieved and grateful there is a website specifcally for people with our condition. I have come to realize drs are not as smart as I thought they were, I always thought when you go to the dr and tell them what's wrong they will know what it is, man i was wrong.I was curious about your statements in the pink lettering?Are you allergic to all those ingredients you are "free" of now? If i don't hear back thanks again for your reply,Marlena

Marlena, all of my intolerances have different symptoms, with the only overlap being fatigue. Shay's approach is perhaps, the most difficult, but it really is the best. Once you remember what "well" feels like, it becomes easier to identify what's making you sick.

Hi Marlena,

No I do not believe I am "allergic" to all of these foods. I think my body just isnt digesting them well at the moment. I am working on healing my gut and my deficiencies. Vitamin D is already back in the normal range. :) And I am working on Iron right now.

I will never eat GLUTEN again. I think it is very damaging to the body even in small amounts.

My plan is to heal and then re-introduce those foods in but in very limited amounts. For instance the nightshades give me stiff hands in the morning. So my hope is someday I can eat them once in awhile and feel just fine. I dont plan on eating tons of starches again ever. I feel better on this more natural diet. :)
