Secondary Food Intolerance Caused By Gluten

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if you guys have any secondary intolerance too apart from gluten and how long did it take to resolve the secondary intolerance? Do you have more than one secondary food intolerance?

Thanks!

Yes, I found out I cannot tolerate soy about 4 weeks after going gluten free. Dairy also. I don't know how long before they resolve, but for now I have to avoid them.

Nightshades, dairy, soy, are a few of the common secondary intolerances. If you look at the signature lines you will see a lot of intolerances listed by the Celiacs here.

Good luck.

I had problems with corn and was lactose intolerant before I discovered my gluten intolerance (really, I just stopped eating gluten to try to help my arthritis :blink: , not realizing it would help so many other things (but not my arthritis :( )

Since then I have discovered I cannot eat soy, nightshades, citrus, and legumes. Some of these may be temporary intolerances and I may be able to resume eating them once my gut is properly healed.

I became intolerant to rice, probably during the last few years before diagnosis. I've found out just two months ago. I used to be a rice lover until few year ago. Then I started disliking it the same way I always disliked wheat and rye. About the same time I also stopped liking oats. Never tried gluten-free oats, I would probably react to them as well.

Other "intolerances" were not real intolerances, just a side effect of my ruined health. The first few months I could only eat a little bit of meat, milk (especially the sweetened condensed milk), cream, sour cream, fresh cheeses and dried cranberries. I slowly added leafy veggies, other veggies, fresh fruit, seeds. In six months I was able to tolerate small amounts of corn and legumes again. In a year I was able to add potatoes to my regular diet. For long time I couldn't tolerate yogurts but last week I had one and no reaction. I tried another one yesterday and still no reaction. Maybe I'll be able to tolerate yogurt again.

When I finally went totally gluten-free last Aug (I was gluten- lite for a while before that), I also realized I was having problems w/ dairy. About 3 weeks ago I started trying cheese & yogurt, and I have no problems with them. Still can't do milk or ice cream w/ o a Lactaid pill, though-- and even then I can't have too much.

I am also trying to figure out fructose intolerance-- I know for sure brown rice (amongst other things) gives me problems, which makes things fun b/c so many gluten-free items have brown rice in them.

sometimes dairy

fructose/fructans (hoping this is temporary)

corn

potatoes

too much starch or complex carbohydrates

coffee & tea in excess

sugar in excess

legumes

**these are additional intolerances- had them before going gluten free and after- and i dont think all intolerances are necessarily related to gluten

Thanks everyone.. the most worrying symptom I have is chest tightness and anxiety attacks after eating food (sometimes). I still have random bouts of headaches, constipation is better since I'm taking Trifala (herbal medicine given by my doctor). I'm also taking some digestive enzymes. I think I'm having secondary food intolerance symptoms. I've narrowed it to yeast (maybe) or in general starches/carbohydrates or fatty foods. The way I'm looking at this is that my body is healing and is unable to break down certain foods to absorb completely. Those unbroken/undigested foods enter the blood stream and intoxicate the brain via leaky gut syndrome causing my symptoms. Another explanation is shortage of enzymes to break down other foods (apart from gluten) temporarily but not sure which ones! This also related to what I mentioned about leaky gut syndrome.

I'm still unable to tolerate coconut, tapioca, legumes, and soy.

I was intolerant to dairy and corn but have been able to reintroduce them successfully. Dairy after 6 years, corn after about 3. I'm still careful not to over-do it with the corn.

Yes I have secondary intolerances and I am still discovering them. I am not sure that i would even try to reintroduce soy,nightshades or corn into my diet.My reaction to them is so incapacitating.

When I am done with my elimination diet I plan to go grain free again.Dairy is one I am up in the air about,,maybe yes maybe no.
