Nightshades Too?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been gluten free for about six weeks (for the most part but I've made some mistakes) and I'm still have lots of bathroom issues. Reviewing what I've eaten it seems that tomatoes and potatoes are causing me to have diarrhea within an hour of eating them. So I'll be giving up those for a while now, too.

I'm not sure I'm ever going to get this all figured out. But I can now spell diarrhea without the use of a spellchecker. Whoohoo.

*snort*

Try peeling the nightshades before you give them up entirely. Most of the toxins are in the skin.

If you are reacting to a whole family of foods such as nightshades, I'd suggest reading up on cross reactive pollens (probably birch for nightshades) and look up what is high in your area. Being treated for the pollen (birch for ex) will help eliminate or lighten the problems with the foods.

Hon, you could have bathroom issues for a while yet. You're still early in the game here. You'll get it all figured out!! ;)

Do as Jess suggests, peel the nightshades and see it if helps.

Two thoughts if the " big D" (man, I get tired of typing out diarrhea :D ) continues: dump dairy for a while and take probiotics.

And kudos for keeping your sense of humor during this recovery phase :lol: . Not everyone can do that.

whoohoo!!!!

Thanks for the perspective. I think I was hoping for an Open & Shut, Black & White, Aha! answer but instead I've got an Ajar, Gray, Huh? answer.

Atta girl, keep that sense of humor. You're gonna need it. Saved me from swan-diving off a cliff during this mess (pre-DX and post).

Wish we could tell you definitively what will happen on this healing journey, but alas, we cannot.

No playbook, no set time pattern for recovery and certainly no "one size fits all" answers.

Every BODY is different.

Hang tough.
