Confused By Potato

Recommended Posts

OK this is crazy. I think I might be reacting to potato SKIN. Tater tots didn't bother me but a whole baked potato has gotten me twice. How weird is that?

I don't know what's in the skin...other than iodine.

Gluten-Free since 6/2011.

DH (and therefore Celiac) dx from ND.

Responsive to iodine withdrawal for DH (see quote, above).

Genetic tests reveal half DQ2, half DQ8 - I'm a weird bird!

I'm not sure but the food chemical diet I'm on says to peel them. Might be amines. I don't think I react to iodine. Seafood doesn't cause any issues.

Yes, the skin is not only where most of the nutrient content (other than starch) lies, but see also:

You should also avoid eating potato peels. About 30% to 80% of the toxin content of a potato is in its peel.

That also happens to be where the lectins are, to repel invaders :ph34r: My worst reactions to potatoes were always when I was eating the skins.

That makes a lot of sense, Shroomie. I don't think lectins and autoimmunity play very nice together. :huh:

I'd like to know what does play well with ai. Seriously. Because I'd schedule a play date. Like, yesterday.

Ok. I'll stop being grumpy.

Okay, if you'll stop being grumpy you can come to Nevada for a playdate this summer :D
