Celiac Plus Many Other Intolerances

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have been gluten free for one year, I try to also go dairy free and nightshade free, must admit to slip out couple of time but I do try.

I have so many intolerances, I am wondering if the foods I am intolerant have a similar family or something or some reason behind it.

These are the foods I am intolerant to, as well as been diagnosed Celiac. Some are really noticable intolerances other are mild, I have had muscle testing done against these foods are all are not good for me.

Egg

Diary

Soy

Nighshades

Apples

Beans (lentils ok)

Yeast

Pear

Grapes

Artificial colours

Kiwi Fruit

Anyone else have these similar food intolerances.

Thanks

Lisa

Hi Lisa:

After Enterolab (stool test) diagnoses of gluten intolerance and casein allergy, I continued to experience gastro symptoms. So I did an ELISA (blood test) for over 100 different foods. That diagnosed my egg and cane sugar allergy. Another stool test diagnosed my soy allergy. Then I did an herb and spice ELISA panel which diagnosed my vanilla and nutmeg allergies. So I have gluten, dairy, soy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg allergies. If I eat any of those (except cane sugar), I experience 1-3 weeks of cramping gut pain, bloating and irregularity. Cane sugar causes 2-3 days of tachycardia and nausea. (I have no 'mild' reactions to any of my diagnosed food allergies.)

My husband did the Enterolab test which showed he had nonceliac gluten intolerance. After I did the ELISA test, he also did ELISA tests which showed he has (besides gluten): dairy, egg, sesame, almond, red grape, blueberries, vanilla and nutmeg. He has nongastro symptom reactions to all those. I've heard from my doc (who regularly tests patients with the ELISA test) that people can develop allergies to almost any foods.

What is a 'muscle test'? How does that measure antibody or immune response reactions? Do you react to every food diagnosed by that test?

I don't think you should trust a muscle test to show intolerances. Have an actual lab test done. A chiropractor muscle tested me for intolerances and all that showed up were eggs, and that was only after I told him that eggs were a problem. I had already had a blood test done which showed eggs, gluten, casein, whey, and cane sugar, but the muscle test didn't show any of that. Soy, eggs, and dairy are typical. Apperantly nightshades are fairly common as well. I wonder if yeast and fruit intolerances could indicate a candida overgrowth. It could be a case of candida and leaky gut. Again, go with an actual lab to diagnose food intolerances.

Thanks, I had the muscle testing done by my Naturopath, can GP's test for intolerances? I was always told no, which is why I can only go by what my Naturopath was telling me, I have not heard of some of those tests you had done? is that thru a GP or allergist? I might have to look into them, who would you recommend I find?

I do get symptoms of with most of the list, usually very gassy bloating and constipation.

I don't use nutmeg or vanilla, are they quite common allergies?

My Naturopath suggested is was the sugars in grapes and apples etc but oranges I was fine with, she was rather surpised.

Thanks for the replies, Its always interesting to hear from others with multiple food intolerances.

Thanks

Lisa :)

Interesting thought about Canida Overgrowth, I have been looking up Leaky gut and this recently :) I definately would like to know more.

You can order food intolerance tests online and do them yourself. All you have to do is mail it back and wait for the results. Enterolab's stool tests is the most reliable for the common intolerances, such as eggs, gluten, dairy, and soy. There are several companies that offer tests that check for a variety of intolerances. Genova is probably the most well known. If you prefer that a doctor do it you may just have to ask around. There aren't too many traditional (allopathic-medical school trained) doctors that even believe in food intolerances, but some of them are starting to come around. Your naturopath may be able to do one or know somebody that can. If not, go to your local health food store or supplement shop and ask someone that works there. You may even find an allergist that can check for intolerances.

My guess is that those foods are causing you problems because of leaky gut. I think the fruit is problematic because of candida. I suggest getting checked for those two things as well. You can order tests for both things online as well.

Good luck.
