Dx Celiac, Possible Autoimmune Reaction To Seafood, Nuts, Dairy, High Protein Foods.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with Celiac disease and it seems to have had some ongoing immune reaction. The main complaints I've always had were dry eyes, mouth, and skin which are your typical Sjogren's syndrome symptoms and they seem to come and go. I've always noticed that they seem to flare up, especially when I get glutened, but also when I eat certain things like dairy, almonds, fish, and peanuts.

So for the last few weeks I've been eating fruit and meat and I've been doing alright, until last night when I cooked some salmon and ate it. This morning I woke up very achey, my mouth was dry, my eyes were dry, and I just felt horrible. It can't be a coincidence, it happens everytime.

I've noticed the foods that make me feel worse are usually high in protein, especially almonds/fish. Maybe it's a possible problem with digestion where the food is entering my bloodstream causing an immune reaction? Maybe my body doesn't have what it needs to break down these foods to digest and that's how they are entering the blood stream? I don't know. It's not a normal food allergy because I don't have the anaphalysis, and it's not as bad as when I get glutened because my DH doesn't flareup... but it definitely makes me feel horrible.

I don't get ANY digestive issues when I eat these foods, they come out fine. They just make me feel bad.

There are a lot of proponents that say autoimmune diseases are related to food allergies, but the diet they all propose includes fish and nuts - both of which I have an adverse reaction to. I just don't understand....

Not quite an allergy but you are sensitive to the fish and high protien. There is a difference. All I can say is try not to eat any of these for a few months and then try to reintroduce at a later date. Sorry I couldn't be of any more help.

You will find many of us on here with lots of other food intolerances besides gluten. And for each person they seem to manifest in a unique way. For me, potatoes, soy, and citric acid are currently all making me itch like crazy if I eat them, sometimes with red blotches, sometimes without. Right now, for the first time in five years, I am not itching!! Yeay.

Eliminate all the things you are intolerant to and as the previous poster said, maybe sometime in the future you will be able to tolerate them again--then,again, maybe not. It's a crapshoot really. For most of us the other intolerances don't show up until gluten free because the response to the gluten seems to overwhelm the body so that the other stuff doesn't get heard.

I think they are causing an autoimmune reaction. I feel extremely achey, fatigued, lethargic, brain fogged, even my teeth are aching.

I haven't eaten fish in 6 months because of this and when I tried to reintroduce them last night, it definitely felt worse than ever. I slept for around 13 hours as well. I expected it really.
