Hi all,

 

I was diagnosed with the celiac disease in March 2011. Since then, I am on a strict gluten free diet but have been experiencing many other food intolerances such as rice, eggs and dairy products (cow milk derived products essentially).

 

I have been having big trouble with rice. It started with white rice and now it is expanding to other types of rice. I feel extremely tired and have belly pain especially with whole grain rice. Once it woke me up in the middle of the night. I went to see a doctor (gastro enterologist), he said he had never heard about rice causing pain... same with the dietician yesterday. She told me her sister was celiac and has no problem with rice... This is the first time she hears something "bad" about rice.

 

I know I should avoid rice now but I don't have many other options for grains: corn causes me constipation, no way I eat wheat since I am celiac, Millet causes me bloating. I tried gluten free oats and had pain too. I am not a big fan of quinoa... I don't feel full after eating only vegetables and meat/fish, I feel like my body is always seeking some sort of grains to fill my stomach with.

 

I did not have any symptoms of celiac disease and was feeling much better than I feel now with the gluten free diet. I feel like I became much more sensitive to other foods since I started the diet. I was not feeling any belly pain before... nor a fatigue due to something I ate...

 

I was diagonsed celiac because I had some weird reaction on my tongue with acidic foods. I saw my allergits and she made a test on my arm. She found I was reacting to citrus fruits, gluten and milk... but really not a big reaction. So I went on a bread/ pasta free diet and replaced it with rice. After a year, I was diagnosed celiac and then started having these problems with rice. It took me some time to figure out what it was. Now I am sure, it is rice. As for eggs and cheese, whenever I eat them in big quantity (more than 3 or 4 bites), my belly is in pain...

 

Has anyone experienced other food intolerances since a gluten free diet? has anyone talked to his doctor about a possibility of rice intolerance??

 

Thanks in advance for your answers!

I have this same problem! My body seeks carbs constantly due to not being able to find ones I can have. I'm allergic to wheat, oats, soy, nuts and citric acid. I get hives head to toe when I consume these products. Now we noticed I don't tolerate rice. I don't get hives, but it's the guy wrenching pain and it doubles me over. Definitely wakes me up night too. I was recently diagnosed with Hashimoto disease before I got all these food allergies too. It was the same for my sister. Her thyroid when crazy and then she ended up with celiacs. I did the allergy testing and then the elimination diet with reintroduced and still reacted so mine was found to be a true allergy and I cannot have these foods anymore at all.  So for me, I can confirm it is in fact possible rice! Because I haven't had those other foods for well over a year because I can't.  One thing I've noticed is with rice, manufacturers add things to it because it's normally stripped down pretty raw and if they didn't add, there's not much nutritional value to rice. So, my theory is, the added stuff is what's making the reaction in my opinion.

I have tons of food allergies and I feel the exact same way! My body craves and seeks carbs because I can't find anything I can tolerate. I'm allergic to Wheat, oats, soy, nuts, citric acid, and now we noticed I don't tolerate rice. The others I can't have because I get hives head to toe when I consume them, but rice it's definitely the gut wrenching pain that wakes me up and keeps me doubled over. I was recently diagnosed with Hashimoto disease right before all these new food allergies showed up. Have you had your thyroid checked?  My sister too had this same issue... started with her thyroid then wen to celiacs.  I had the allergy testing done so we could find out what was causing my hives... then we had to do the elimination diet.... which sucked! We got everything out of my body and then ate clean for a couple months. Then one at a time we tried to introduce all the things above that I tested positive for an allergy to see if it was a true reaction. I surely reacted to each one. I had gut symptoms and hives, fatigue and over all just flu like sickness for days. You have to introduce one... if you react, give you body time to heal and clear before you introduce another.... so beware of that. It's a very long drawn process. Took me about 6-7 months to get through it all.... I'm still trying to figure out what I can and can't have. I've found good apps on my phone where you can scan the product bar code after you set your allergies into the settings too. That helps.... 

Ugg, tell me about I thought I had bad gut bacteria for years. Carbs would just make be bloat and distend, sugars, rice, any kind of grain. Figured out in Feb, it was UC and that the sugars in carbs caused flare ups....I realize I am blessed I can nuts, I eat nut based breads, muffins, cakes etc, using stevia, monk fruit, and xylitol for sweeteners since they do not trigger the flare ups. >.> I am also addicted eating sugar free jams made with extracts, and a universal pectin that reacts with calcium water instead of sugar so I can use monk fruit to sweeten. (Cheaper to make this for my fruit cravings to buying sugar free jams)    I also found a noodle by miracle noodles that is carb free they also make a rice sub...I use them in recreating dishes I used to eat all the time. NOTE the fiber in them is not tolerable to some people. But might look into it as a alternative. I think I did a post not to long ago about different forms of noodles and how to make them or get them for those with similar issues one of hte more intiruging ones is using eggs or egg whites mixed up and cooked on low eat in a pan into a thin sheet then cutting into noodles or using nordic wear microwave plates to make them. .....I recently found you can mix konjac flour, eggwhites, and hemp protein, up pour into one of those plates and cook into a tortilla.

-_- check my profile for my food issues lol list is huge, at least you can eat meats?

I do not know what I may or may not have but rice is going to be the death of me. It took me a very long time to realize that it was rice causing a lot of my issues because the worst of it for me is the day after I consume it. For a while I was able to get away with brown rice but not anymore. Basmati rice too but now I'm too afraid to try anything with rice... I get fatigued, nauseous, dizzy, light headed, feverish, my sinuses kill me and I need to consume an unbelievable amount of ice water. I hate that there are so many things now that contain rice, rice flour, rice vinegar, rice wine... As much as I love it I pretty much stay away from all asian food now... I've made the mistake of eating rice pasta, teriyaki sauces, peanut sauces, noodles, breakfast bars, snacks... all that contain rice without knowing it. And while I don't think it's an "allergy" now many toiletries contain rice oil...

It does sound like a allergy to me, the fatigue, fever, and sinuses are a sign of that.....yeah rice is in everything. I have a corn allergy there so think I get where your coming from. I try to avoid rice, I notice it causes a bit of water retention but I still use the protein powder for it a bit.

If you love Asian food, I found a salt free spicy Asian season all from Big AXE spices that has all the flavor kick and you can put it on anything. OH if you need a rice free, gluten free noodle, miracle noodles makes konjac carb free noodles, AND they make a rice substitute with konjac....combine with coconut secret coconut aminos and you can have your Asian stir fry with "rice" without real rice

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.
