Potato Intolerance

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I had for many years a gluten intolerance and recently I developed a potato intolerance; I never heard of a potato intolerance and this is how I came upon this site. Do not be discouraged by the lack of positive findings in the gut. The intolerance is real and unlike the celiac disease with positive findings, gluten intolerance is acquired later in life and may not show the typical gut mucosa changes you find in classic celiac disease. Somebody mentioned in this string soya sauce: soya sauce, unlike tamarin, is stretched with tons of gluten. Some specialists believe there is a crossover between IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and Gluten Intolerance. The fodmap diet for IBS, with some adaptation, is also very helpful in gluten intolerance. Interestingly, in the fodmap app potato is a go (green) and sweet potato, which does not present a problem for me, is a no-no (red). Hence, the take-home is that there are many individual variations of Gluten Intolerance and do not be discouraged by the lack of positive findings; much remains unknown. What helped me the most in the long run: Indian Berberry (Berberine Hydrochloride). The link to the Fodmap diet and its foundation can be found at the Monash University (Australia) site: https://www.monash.edu/medicine/ccs/gastroenterology/fodmap

Disclosure: I have no connection or financial interest with any manufacturer of Berberine Hydrochloride, with any drug manufacturer whatsoever in any country and no connection with Monash University or the marketing of the Fodmap diet. I do work in the healthcare field and my sole purpose in this posting is to share my knowledge and personal experience of coping with celiac-like gluten intolerance and the more recent potato intolerance.
