Sensitive To Gluten And Maybe Others?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone...im a new member.

for the last 8 months i have been on a gluten free diet... but i still feel sick once in awhile... I figured out i cant eat tomatoes, or eggplant..i also figured out about Niteshades, which is very interesting. Today i woke up and felt ok, but when i started to eat, i had that pain come back in my lower intestines.. I had some Corn bread...So i looked at the gluten free ceral i eat and its corn too. So im wondering if i cant eat corn .???? so Tommorrow i am NOT going to eat anything to do with corn and see what happens...I have also contacted a nutritionist and will get tested for these foods, which i should have done ages ago, but im abit stubborn and wanted to figure it out myself. Anyways, if anyone out there could help me with this, or if they had the same sort of problems with lower intestines cramping and corn etc,

Thank you so much..

Keep in mind that it can be difficult to test for intolerances (vs. allergies which might be diagnosed by skin or blood tests). Your problems with nightshades are more likely intolerances, as would be corn if that turns out to be an issue too (I'm assuming your corn bread was definitely gluten-free and did not have any wheat in it?). Corn was difficult for me to digest for the first few months on the diet, but I was able to add it back in after a little while as it wasn't really the corn itself, but the fact that I needed to give my intestines easy foods.

A few other things to think about...

Are you sure that your diet is truly gluten-free? That you're watching out for tricky names for gluten, and have replaced any contaminated cookware, cutting boards, stuff like that?

Also keep in mind that if you never removed dairy from your diet when you first went gluten-free, that could be an issue as newly diagnosed celiacs are often lactose intolerant until healed. Soy is another common culprit to which celiac often develop intolerances.

In the mean time, you could try keeping a food diary by keeping log of everything you eat, along with an elimination diet and adding back in foods one at a time to keep track of what bothers you.

I loved corn at first. Then it kicked me hard. I haven't tried reintroducing it yet.

hi and thank you. what easy foods would i eat while my stomach is healing ? maybe i need to eat more soups and stuff like that. That sort of makes sense...also, the corn bread is gluten free. I have changed my toaster but not cutting board. interesting... any other ideas?

thank you
