Ibs, Pancake Mix, What May Be Causing The Diaharrea?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here have IBS? Books say you need to eat a little all day to not get the d. Is that true for you?

Also does anyone know about gluten-free pancake mixes? I seem to get the d the day I eat them, any clue here? This time it was bisquick?

I've never had a problem with bisquick. If you react to premade mixes perhaps it is SOMETHING in those mixes that could be setting you off (ie: some use soy and other such products)

On the other hand, perhaps Bisquick is gluten free enough for the "vast majority" but not quite gluten free enough for you. At least, not at this point in your healing process.

Another possibilty is that your system can't handle refined carbs just yet. How do you do with potatoes?

All the oil that you use to cook the pancakes?

I can eat gluten free cakes and cookies no problem. It just seems to be the pancake mixes. How do I test for this. I can eat buttered toast. So pretty clueless at this point. I eat millet bread no problem. I can eat potatoes. Not sure about the quinoa. I had surgery 3 weeks ago, almost 4 so things could be messed up in there. Do I take immodium if I have trouble and have to drive? How do you all cope if you get a reaction?

My IBS was Actually a symptom of my Celiac Disease. I had problems with d all my life, but it becameconstant about 10 years ago, when I actually had to be hospitalized. If your still having d, it could be that you are eating some other food to which you are sensitive. For example, I can't eat eggs that aren't just used as a minor ingredient. You may need to look at what else you are eating with your pancakes. Good luck.

I'm sorry I forgot to add two more things. I think IBS with Celiac Disease is a totally different animal from normal IBS. Before I was gluten free I followed the instructions, eat little bits through the day, eat lots of fiber. The problem is, I don't know about but you but when I'm about to have a bout of d I get nauseous and can't eat. The other problem is lots of fiber just pulled the food out faster then normal and I absorbed even fewer nutrients from food, it just made it worse. You already know I'm sure that hormonally speaking woman are more susecptible to d during menstration. So there are lots of variables.

I seem to be able to eat eggs in cookies. But in the pancakes it is questionable. Though it seems to be ok in french toast. So that brings me back to the baking mix.

How would you decifer the culprit out of the ingredients. clueless. How do you test for egg alergy? Can alergy Dr. do test for eating eggs alergy? Could he be of any more help with baking ingredients and my potential allergy? Thanks.

Since you suspect egg, the first thing you can try is to prepare the bisquick without egg. Not tasty, but possibly educational.

If you know applesauce or banana work for you, you could replace the egg with one of those.

If that works, then you could try preparing the pancake mix with only the yolk or only the white. (This is a not a perfect test since it is hard to separate the egg perfectly).

You can get blood tests for egg intolerance. I don't think docs are all that helpful in this particular area, but you could get lucky. I am working with a NP who mostly deals with autistic children. Cheaper than a doc, and she's very familiar with these sorts of tests.

In the meantime, you could read up on testing food intolerances. I think the Jonecja book is good- "Dealing with Food allergies" She tells you exactly what to do, when and in what order. The book is aimed towards allergies (epi-pen type reactions) but will work for food intolerances.
