Just Stumped The Nutritionist

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

The Navy nutritionist at the Okinawa military hospital -- who herself has celiac -- was totally stumped by my leaky gut symptoms and inability to eat anything beyond ten foods. "I just keep thinking of solutions that include things you can't eat," she said after nearly an hour in her office.

You and me both, sister. I just told her not to worry, I will get better, and I can probably manage on my own until then. I wouldn't have been so cocky about it, except I have my Larabars, Zing Bars (10 g protein! No soy or dairy!!), and coconut milk and vegan hot chocolate. I can deal with small, boring meals as long as there are snacks to fatten me up.

And today I successfully ate one gluten-free sausage. Only barely noticeable pain! If it still works OK tomorrow, I may be able to add it into my safe list. And then later, maybe eggs...bacon...?

Anyway, nutritionist-bating isn't a hobby of mine. But she didn't know the hidden pitfalls of sushi in Japan -- possible barley sweetener in the rice vinegar, gluten-derived MSG in the nori, not to mention cc. So I unintentionally ended up scaring her out of ever eating sushi again. :o

Sorry -- just had to get this little episode out of my system. And brag about being able to eat a sausage!

Oh, dear. I had a Larabar an hour ago and now I have brain fog. Now I have to remove Larabars from my "totally safe" list. :(

Do you think it could be from the sausage?

Anything's possible, but I time my meals out so I can ID reactions -- they usually happen on a certain timeline (have to start within 1 hour of eating but can last 1-7 hours). The sausage did its worst and stopped before I ate anything else. Gluten, casein, and oatmeal are my only exceptions to the rule so far.

I'm also getting clumsy suddenly. Not a good sign. I wish leaky gut management had more scientific research behind it. So annoying. My guess is I have to put almonds on a rotation diet, or, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iH9IO6iMO78: Almonds are a "sometimes food."

The learning curve on this is ridiculous -- by the time I get the hang of it, I'll be healed up. :D

I have to agree with Shroom on this one, kiddo.

The sausage is more suspect than the LaraBar (if you have been eating LaraBars all along w/o issues)

What's in the sausage?

Delayed reactions make it very difficult to pinpoint a culprit and as you and I have discussed already--you are still healing.

Just 6 weeks into this journey and EVERYTHING may seem like a "bad boy food".

I never say this to newbies because it sounds discouraging--when in fact my intention is the opposite--but you have a long way to go yet

and I personally, did not stop feeling as if every food were a problem until the 15 month mark.I rotated foods in and out till I was nuts with all that....argh.... But it happened. I started to heal and absorb and more foods became my pal again. (still have a few buggers who bite me on the butt)

Bottom line....sometimes, it's not necessarily the food, but just your gut "squawkin at ya"..

Just hang in there.

When I went to my nutritionist I was only able to eat 11 foods (if you count butter and salt as foods). She told me I was reacting to pesticide and artificial fertilizer residues, and that I should try going totally organic. I did, and was able to add quite a few foods. I even tested the theory by once again trying non-organics of the same foods I had added. They got me every time. Eventually I healed enough that I could start eating non-organics, but it took almost a year. I'd RATHER eat all organic, but between the cost and the non-availability in my small town, it's nice now that I have a much larger menu to choose from.

I have been trying all sorts of things lately and have had tremendous success! Pamela's cookies, bison hot dogs, and I even made pork pie!! (My favorite). Allspice and clove were off limits to me before, but I had a great holiday eating my favorite holiday foods. I have even been able to eat white potatoes again in moderation. Next up is blueberries, and maybe a gluten-free pizza. YIPPEE!

Hi Chaff,

If you are trying to add/test foods, it is much better to add a whole food. Sausage is a combination of ground pork and spices when homemade, and often preservatives and who knows what else when it is a processed version. Instead you should try adding plain pork chops, cooked by yourself at home, not at a restraunt. Or plain bacon, or plain ham. I suggest you take a look at the sausage label and write down the ingredients. If you want you can trial each of them separately to see of they cause symptoms. The same idea applies when adding any food. You should plan on adding whole foods, not processed foods. once you have a variety of whole foods that work for you, then you can try adding more complicated foods to your diet. At least that's how I would do it. Basically, whole foods are anytime foods, and processed foods are sometimes foods. I think Cookie Monster might have a different take.... :) Thanks for the video link, that was fun!

Thanks, everyone! You all are so nice. :D

GFinDC and bartfull, I'm deeply offended you think I might eat something that isn't a nutrious, organic, whole food. -_- Trust me, this is a very minimally processed, completely wholesome sausage. Less than five ingredients, no nitrates, and certified by two US celiac organizations. I was shocked, SHOCKED to see this in a US miltiary commissary. I may buy out all the packages. (!) I prefer not to eat meat, but I clearly am not in the driver's seat right now and I'll take what I can get.

IrishHeart -- thanks very much for the advice. I consoled myself by reading up on intestinal permeability recovery rates on PubMed, which as you point out are in my near-term future self's favor but not my current self's. Delighted to discover that hereditary hemochromatosis and celiac are apparently next to each other on my DNA, which has a pleasant symmetry to it since both are totally annoying. But probably nowhere near as annoying as chronic anemia with undiagnosed celiac.

I tried the sausage again today. No worries -- just fine. Yay!

Well good, we aim to offend ! (not) :)

Good on you the sausage worked the 2nd time. Now you have to decipher what else you may have eaten that day or the day before that may have caused you to be sick. Or not, as it could just be healing turbulence as was also suggested by IH. Which is very possible. It's great they are stocking gluten-free products in the commissarys now. Will cease never wonder! :)

Sausage is still not something I'd suggest trying at this point though. Spicy foods are, well, spicy. And that spicy-ness may be nice for your tongue, but think about rubbing it on an open wound. Like, say, rub a nice hot cayenne pepper across a burn or a scrape on your skin. Doesn't sound fun eh? You can't see the inside of your gut, so it is not obvious that it could be like an open wound. But that's what celiac does, it destroys the lining of the gut. Treating your gut a little gently for awhile is not a bad idea. You can put a bandaid on your elbow, but you can't do that to the inside of your gut. The damage is right there exposed to everything you eat. Spicy, sweet, sour, crunchy, everything goes right against the wounded gut lining. I know, you can take Pepto Bismol to coat the gut, but that isn't a long term solution. Pepto helps for accidental glutenings tho.

Boy gluten-free food in the commissary. You are practically living in a resort there! It's fantasy island! :)

My daughter and I have an upcoming appointment with a dietician at our Endocrinologist's office. Am *not* looking forward to it. I have been to many of them before I knew about the food intolerances. I was a vegetarian then. All of them pushed chicken. I *hate* chicken. And now maybe I know why. I am intolerant to it. And it took us so long to find out about our intolerances because they are the delayed reaction type. I only figured the eggs out after not eating any for a very long time. I cut them out because daughter couldn't have them. But then after I ate them on 4 separate occasions and got the same reaction...first somewhere around 16 hours later and then when I ate them the following day, 2 hours later. As if that weren't enough, I repeated the same exact thing, thinking that the first time had been food poisoning because I got the eggs from a salad bar. So now I know better!

The last dietician I saw wasn't much help because she didn't seem to know much about gastroparesis or food intolerances. Kept telling me that this is lactose free and that is lactose free. To which I replied, "It's not just the lactose but the casein!" And then she muttered just like they did with the chicken... "Well you could at least *try* it." Uh, no thanks. I no likey the big D.

Our diets are pretty limited and we can't even eat some spices and seasonings. Thankfully I can have beans and I love them. So I try to base my diet around those. I am also constantly on the lookout for recipes that I might make. I am going to try Rissoles over the weekend. But they will not have any dairy, egg or breadcrumbs in them. Just ground beef, precooked shredded veggies a little ketchup for flavoring and a wee coating of sweet rice flour in the hopes of crisping them up when pan frying. I am hoping that my daughter will eat these. She doesn't usually ground beef but she does love my meatloaf and this seems to be a lot easier. If they work, I'll make quite a lot and freeze them.

I don't know how I'd survive without Larabars either...

I'm also in agreement that it could have been the sausage making your gut go what is this! Can I handle this? I don't know. Let's find out. it might not have been a reaction to anything in the sausage per se, but that your gut just had to adjust to it, might have had trouble with it the first time hand left a bit of minor damage behind, giving you a bit of grief with the Larabar. Who knows. But if all went well the 2nd time, then yay! I would just say don't have them too frequently. Sausages can be a bit of trouble at the best of times. (Damn, now i want one).

Good points (and info for your nutritionist) about the sushi. I want to go back to Japan, but the food situation is one thing holding me back. Eating out would be a near impossibility, and reading the labels at the grocery store would take hours... So glad I went before the celiac struck. I used to be a tempura addict!

Anyway, glad to hear that you have access to some good things, and that your gut seems to be healing.

Good luck!

depending on your sensitivity level, it could indeed by the larabar. from their website, i get the impression that they are produced in a facility with gluten-containing ingredients: "GLUTEN FREE/CELIACS LÄRABAR®, über® and Jŏcalat® are Gluten Free. They have no gluten-containing ingredients, and we have manufacturing controls in place to ensure that there are no cross-contact concerns. We also periodically verify our practices using Gliadin gluten testing."

i dont have much faith in dietitians or nutritionists , but to be fair I do not have much faith in doctors either :P . When I went to a dietitian , I had a safe list of about 10 foods needless to say she was not very helpful :ph34r:

Take it slow and steady, give your self time before you start adding to many foods. Give your self time to heal a bit first .I know its frustrating but your health and healing is too important to rush things .

Wow! I missed the part about the commissary. That's one reason we stopped shopping there very often. They had no gluten-free pasta or baking stuff. I think they may have had rice noodles in the Asian section but we really don't eat those. And based on how our nearest one (Marysville) looked on our last visit, I rather doubt they would have gluten-free stuff now. We did go in Aug. (I think) and didn't get as much as we used to. For one thing we have Winco now which not only has a fairly good gluten-free selection (even though we don't currently need those things) but lower prices overall. But it would appear that their customer base has dropped or something. Probably doesn't help that a Winco has opened a few blocks from them. They totally did away with they two fast food places that used to be there. And some of the aisles that used to be there are no longer. Instead they filled those up with things like cases of toilet paper and paper towels. Big things that took up a lot of space and made the aisle look full. It was a very sad trip indeed.

Update: it's looking like either hereditary fructose intolerance or leaky gut of monumental proportions. My only safe foods are plain meat/fish/eggs (cooked--homemade mayo had fructose that laid me out), most vegetable oils and ghee, and plain white rice, thoroughly washed. Oh, and a thimbleful of select spices. Basically any fructose over .1 g per day is bad, bad, bad. That's about a fourth cup of potato.

Going in a March to Mayo for some follow-up and dietary testing. The HFI forum folks have been lovely and lots of help. But they mostly all eat tons of wheat and dairy, the lucky stiffs, though they do have a few celiacs among them. I have to go back and forth among their forum and this one for complete advice.

I just made crackers with olive oil and cream of rice! So I'm managing some kind of variation. But honestly, just grateful not to feel sick all the time. Everything's roses as long as I don't stray from my diet.

PS, the commissary system is getting savvier about gluten-free stuff. But I had to wander the aisles for an hour to locate it all!

    Celiac.com 04/23/2018 - A team of researchers recently set out to learn whether celiac disease patients commonly suffer cognitive impairment at the time they are diagnosed, and to compare their cognitive performance with non-celiac subjects with similar chronic symptoms and to a group of healthy control subjects.
    The research team included G Longarini, P Richly, MP Temprano, AF Costa, H Vázquez, ML Moreno, S Niveloni, P López, E Smecuol, R Mazure, A González, E Mauriño, and JC Bai. They are variously associated with the Small Bowel Section, Department of Medicine, Dr. C. Bonorino Udaondo Gastroenterology Hospital; Neurocience Cognitive and Traslational Institute (INECO), Favaloro Fundation, CONICET, Buenos Aires; the Brain Health Center (CESAL), Quilmes, Argentina; the Research Council, MSAL, CABA; and with the Research Institute, School of Medicine, Universidad del Salvador.
    The team enrolled fifty adults with symptoms and indications of celiac disease in a prospective cohort without regard to the final diagnosis.  At baseline, all individuals underwent cognitive functional and psychological evaluation. The team then compared celiac disease patients with subjects without celiac disease, and with healthy controls matched by sex, age, and education.
    Celiac disease patients had similar cognitive performance and anxiety, but no significant differences in depression scores compared with disease controls.
    A total of thirty-three subjects were diagnosed with celiac disease. Compared with the 26 healthy control subjects, the 17 celiac disease subjects, and the 17 disease control subjects, who mostly had irritable bowel syndrome, showed impaired cognitive performance (P=0.02 and P=0.04, respectively), functional impairment (P<0.01), and higher depression (P<0.01). 
    From their data, the team noted that any abnormal cognitive functions they saw in adults with newly diagnosed celiac disease did not seem not to be a result of the disease itself. 
    Their results indicate that cognitive dysfunction in celiac patients could be related to long-term symptoms from chronic disease, in general.

    Celiac.com 04/21/2018 - Dear Friends and Readers,
    I have been writing articles for Scott Adams since the 2002 Summer Issue of the Scott-Free Press. The Scott-Free Press evolved into the Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. I felt honored when Scott asked me ten years ago to contribute to his quarterly journal and it's been a privilege to write articles for his publication ever since.
    Due to personal health reasons and restrictions, I find that I need to retire. My husband and I can no longer travel the country speaking at conferences and to support groups (which we dearly loved to do) nor can I commit to writing more books, articles, or menus. Consequently, I will no longer be contributing articles to the Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. 
    My following books will still be available at Amazon.com:
    Gluten-free Cooking for Dummies Student's Vegetarian Cookbook for Dummies Wheat-free Gluten-free Dessert Cookbook Wheat-free Gluten-free Reduced Calorie Cookbook Wheat-free Gluten-free Cookbook for Kids and Busy Adults (revised version) My first book was published in 1996. My journey since then has been incredible. I have met so many in the celiac community and I feel blessed to be able to call you friends. Many of you have told me that I helped to change your life – let me assure you that your kind words, your phone calls, your thoughtful notes, and your feedback throughout the years have had a vital impact on my life, too. Thank you for all of your support through these years.

    Celiac.com 04/20/2018 - A digital media company and a label data company are teaming up to help major manufacturers target, reach and convert their desired shoppers based on dietary needs, such as gluten-free diet. The deal could bring synergy in emerging markets such as the gluten-free and allergen-free markets, which represent major growth sectors in the global food industry. 
    Under the deal, personalized digital media company Catalina will be joining forces with Label Insight. Catalina uses consumer purchases data to target shoppers on a personal base, while Label Insight works with major companies like Kellogg, Betty Crocker, and Pepsi to provide insight on food label data to government, retailers, manufacturers and app developers.
    "Brands with very specific product benefits, gluten-free for example, require precise targeting to efficiently reach and convert their desired shoppers,” says Todd Morris, President of Catalina's Go-to-Market organization, adding that “Catalina offers the only purchase-based targeting solution with this capability.” 
    Label Insight’s clients include food and beverage giants such as Unilever, Ben & Jerry's, Lipton and Hellman’s. Label Insight technology has helped the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) build the sector’s very first scientifically accurate database of food ingredients, health attributes and claims.
    Morris says the joint partnership will allow Catalina to “enhance our dataset and further increase our ability to target shoppers who are currently buying - or have shown intent to buy - in these emerging categories,” including gluten-free, allergen-free, and other free-from foods.
    The deal will likely make for easier, more precise targeting of goods to consumers, and thus provide benefits for manufacturers and retailers looking to better serve their retail food customers, especially in specialty areas like gluten-free and allergen-free foods.

    Celiac.com 04/19/2018 - Previous genome and linkage studies indicate the existence of a new disease triggering mechanism that involves amino acid metabolism and nutrient sensing signaling pathways. In an effort to determine if amino acids might play a role in the development of celiac disease, a team of researchers recently set out to investigate if plasma amino acid levels differed among children with celiac disease compared with a control group.
     
    The research team included Åsa Torinsson Naluai, Ladan Saadat Vafa, Audur H. Gudjonsdottir, Henrik Arnell, Lars Browaldh, and Daniel Agardh. They are variously affiliated with the Institute of Biomedicine, Department of Microbiology & Immunology, Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden; the Institute of Clinical Sciences, Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden; the Department of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, Karolinska University Hospital and Division of Pediatrics, CLINTEC, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden; the Department of Clinical Science and Education, Karolinska Institute, Sodersjukhuset, Stockholm, Sweden; the Department of Mathematical Sciences, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden; the Diabetes & Celiac Disease Unit, Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University, Malmö, Sweden; and with the Nathan S Kline Institute in the U.S.A.
    First, the team used liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC/MS) to analyze amino acid levels in fasting plasma samples from 141 children with celiac disease and 129 non-celiac disease controls. They then crafted a general linear model using age and experimental effects as covariates to compare amino acid levels between children with celiac disease and non-celiac control subjects.
    Compared with the control group, seven out of twenty-three children with celiac disease showed elevated levels of the the following amino acids: tryptophan; taurine; glutamic acid; proline; ornithine; alanine; and methionine.
    The significance of the individual amino acids do not survive multiple correction, however, multivariate analyses of the amino acid profile showed significantly altered amino acid levels in children with celiac disease overall and after correction for age, sex and experimental effects.
    This study shows that amino acids can influence inflammation and may play a role in the development of celiac disease.

    Celiac.com 04/18/2018 - To the relief of many bewildered passengers and crew, no more comfort turkeys, geese, possums or other questionable pets will be flying on Delta or United without meeting the airlines' strict new requirements for service animals.
    If you’ve flown anywhere lately, you may have seen them. People flying with their designated “emotional support” animals. We’re not talking genuine service animals, like seeing eye dogs, or hearing ear dogs, or even the Belgian Malinois that alerts its owner when there is gluten in food that may trigger her celiac disease.
    Now, to be honest, some of those animals in question do perform a genuine service for those who need emotional support dogs, like veterans with PTSD.
    However, many of these animals are not service animals at all. Many of these animals perform no actual service to their owners, and are nothing more than thinly disguised pets. Many lack proper training, and some have caused serious problems for the airlines and for other passengers.
    Now the major airlines are taking note and introducing stringent requirements for service animals.
    Delta was the first to strike. As reported by the New York Times on January 19: “Effective March 1, Delta, the second largest US airline by passenger traffic, said it will require passengers seeking to fly with pets to present additional documents outlining the passenger’s need for the animal and proof of its training and vaccinations, 48 hours prior to the flight.… This comes in response to what the carrier said was a 150 percent increase in service and support animals — pets, often dogs, that accompany people with disabilities — carried onboard since 2015.… Delta said that it flies some 700 service animals a day. Among them, customers have attempted to fly with comfort turkeys, gliding possums, snakes, spiders, and other unusual pets.”
    Fresh from an unsavory incident with an “emotional support” peacock incident, United Airlines has followed Delta’s lead and set stricter rules for emotional support animals. United’s rules also took effect March 1, 2018.
    So, to the relief of many bewildered passengers and crew, no more comfort turkeys, geese, possums or other questionable pets will be flying on Delta or United without meeting the airlines' strict new requirements for service and emotional support animals.
