Howdy

 

Just curious, what other intolerances are you having? If so, how long before you could (if you could) reintroduce a certain food?

- nightshades

- dairy, including alternates almond, rice milk, etc ( unless baked in something)

- eggs ( unless baked in something)

- lots of vegetables -especially green ones

- nuts, except for an occasional couple of almonds

-and I think my latest might be items iodine content and or salt.

Have not been able to reintroduce anything - going on 13 years now since diagnosed.

Will be curious what others have to say and any ideas/ suggestions. The refrig and pantry are the enemy I have to plow throgh when hunger hits.

Welcome klisja!

 

I removed everything except meat, fish and select fruits and vegies over four years post celiac diagnosis.  See my signature for the complete list.

 

This past November I finally made the connection to Histamine Intolerance (HIT) due to the damage in my small intestine (the enzymes that regulate histamine in the body are created in the mucosal lining of the small intestine.)  Since I have removed all histamine containing or histamine inducing foods my health has improved greatly.

 

So it has now been 6 months since the HIT discovery and I can now eat very small amounts of the lectin foods I removed nearly two years ago -- if I overdo it I pay dearly.  For now I'm taking it very slow and sticking to my safe foods, but am very hopeful I will get many healthful foods back.

 

Oh I did get Almonds back last Fall -- that was a wonderful day as they make a great snack and can be ground into so many yummy treats!

Corn. I temporarily got just corn starch back, but lost it again after a glutening.

 

White potatoes. I don't know if I had a problem with other nightshades because I never ate them. Just recently got white potatoes back. I may try tomato sauce sometime soon. I'd love to try eggplant but I have NEVER even seen one in any of the stores or farmers markets here! :blink:

 

Salicylates. If I go easy I can eat small amounts of sweet potato and also broccoli, but if I eat too much I will get sick. I wish SO much that I could have blueberries, but they are extremely high in sals. :(

 

Oh yeah, it's been two years gluten-free for me. I'm hoping to get corn starch back again someday so I can eat gluten-free bread again, but to be honest, corn cause so much pain I'm afraid to try again.

Thank you GottaSki :)

 

As sad as it is I am glad I am not alone :) Tests for gluten intolarance come back negative but I can't eat food with gluten in it, except rolled oats (not the quick cooking ones). Can't eat corn either or potato flour.

 

I can't eat fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts, seeds, almonds, spices (just salt) but I can eat dairy.

 

I am hoping someday I can add some fruits and veggies to my list, tired of eating rice and meats all the time :huh:

You can't eat any fruits or vegies?

 

I can't eat citrus, pineapple, banana, mango or many berries -- but i do okay with apples, pears and peaches.

 

I can't eat nightshades, spinach or pumpkin -- but can eat sweet potato, yams, all squash except pumpkin, brocolli, asparagus, cauliflower, etc.

 

Keep trying :)

Not at the moment no :unsure: My colon is really sensitive and I have OAS, I react to spices and fruits. I react to kiwi, citrus, berries, mango (I think), apples and I don't know about the rest. I get really sick from eating bananas, nightshades, barley and rye.

 

ps...carrots??

 Not even carrots, vegetables give me diarrhea. Maby when my colon is better :) I hope so!

I'm interested to know when you all say you are intolerant...

What symptoms do you get???

Just that I have continuing loose bowels (not really diarrhea so much i think) ... all I eat is fruit and veg... Would you guys cut something out if it gave you loose bowels???

Scary thought for me, I'd basically have bugger all left to eat.

My issue has always been the opposite -- can't go at all -- sometimes for over a week

 

But when I talk of intolerances - my symptoms are all over the place depending on which food -- from mild itching to brain fog to full anaphylactic reaction -- for me -- my reactions became much stronger after I had been gluten-free for some time.  Now it seems I can tolerate small portions of some things -- I've had a rough week so will not be trialing anything for at least a week, probably two.

My strongest symptom is psoriasis. All of these (corn, soy, and salicylates) make it flare badly. When I can avoid them (and gluten of course) for a long time, it completely heals. I get "loose" from all of them, but gluten seems to be the only thing that gives me "Get out of the way! Emergency!" D.

It depends on what I eat:

swelling of the lips (that is mostly by fruit, herbs, peppercorns): loose bowel with mucus and just feeling uncomfortable (vegetables, rye, barley, bananas), white wheat products get me really tired and stupid;  tingling feeling all over (corn, rose pepper). nose running - not sure, urticaria - not sure, headace (soy sauce)

 

Maby I should look into salicylate sensitivity, the list looks alot like mine and maby I can add the ones that are not on the list :)

Thanks Lisa. My life would be so much easier if I knew what was normal (poop wise!) ugh!

So I guess your reactions depend on the food and perhaps the quantity?? Do some of your reactions happen a day or two after... Like rashes and itching for example?

Sorry you've had a rough week, hope you feel better soon... Funny hey that these reactions get worse after being gluten free... You'd think the opposite would be the case! Hugs

    • Popcorn, wine, as well as coffee are my favorite things.  Have you identified what is left to enjoy?  
    • I think you need to take a little time to learn about DH and celiac disease.  Celiac and DH are technically autoimmune disorders.  This is about DH: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/dermatitis-herpetiformis/ Learning about celiac disease (overview): https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/what-is-celiac-disease/ Testing for celiac disease via blood test: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/diagnosing-celiac-disease/screening/ I think the full panel is around $400 and the basic budget screening which is pretty darn good (TTG IgA) is under $100.   If you are paying for your medical care (even under insurance) you have the RIGHT to copies of everything.  So, when your doctor orders a lab test, ask for a copy of the order, so YOU know what he is ordering.  Then you can google to see if he/she is ordering the right things.  Get a copy of the results.  Get a copy of the costs/receipt if you are paying out of pocket.  Put your requests in writing.   I think some labs and doctors use the term for gluten allergy incorrectly.  1.  There is a wheat allergy (IgE) that is like a peanut allergy which can cause anaphylactic reactions (throat swelling, breathing issues, drop in blood pressure).  There are some blood tests that are about 50% accurate, along with skin scratch tests (also not super accurate.   2.  There is celiac disease (autoimmune that when exposed to gluten attacks the intestinal track, skin or brain) triggered by gluten (I gave you the blood tests: TTG, DGP EMA).  3) Non-celiac Gluten sensitivity or Intolerance which is like celiac in terms of symptoms, but no antibodies are generated and intestinal damage does not occur.  This diagnosis is reached when you have failed the first two as there are n tests for it.   Read through the DH section of this forum for symptoms and tips.   I hope this helps.   Finally, if you really suspect DH, you  can always go gluten free.  Keep in mind that you need to be strict and you need to adhere to the diet for at least six months to a year.  
    • I mean I might get a prescription refill, or a new vitamin pill for example, and take it for awhile, with absolutely no symptoms.  As we know, no symptoms does not mean no damage being done.   I will feel fine for weeks, but then I start feeling awful, like a bad flu coming on.  I never did get the intestinal symptoms others get.  This for me is the hardest part of having Celiac's, figuring out what did it.  Last month I ended up with pneumonia because I thought the achey symptoms I was having was from gluten, maybe from cross contamination even though my kitchen is off limits to gluten, maybe from some new prescription, maybe from some new tea I was trying, maybe from new vitamins (marked gluten free but not certified, those have gotten me before), so I stopped taking all of that but didn't feel better and kept getting worse.   It took me awhile to figure out I actually had a flu and by that time it went to my lungs and had to go to urgent care. 
    • If you get accidentally glutened, how do you keep doing it for several weeks? Or do you mean you get glutened once and several weeks later you react? 
    • I think, at least from my personal experience, that these tests are accurate if you were diagnosed including blood work that was positive.  All of the tests on my panel were positive by large numbers at diagnosis and over the next year, they went to very low normal for the ranges given.  My GI symptoms were gone by then and the lingering neuro ones took longer to heal but they did. I would assume in a highly symptomatic Celiac, that resolution of symptoms, normalization of the blood work and weight gain would indicate healing.  Whether I am 100% healed or not doesn't matter as my health is far better today than it was in my youth.  I have not developed any more AI diseases than the 4 I already have and I call that a big win. I think doctors do not take into account enough symptom resolution, weight gain for the skinny Celiac's or weight loss for those on the opposite end of the spectrum, as important markers for healing.  I am not even sure if it is totally necessary for a person to heal 100% as there is overlap in the small intestine and nutrients are absorbed not in just one place, making it a brilliant design, when you think of it.  If your health has improved dramatically on the gluten-free diet, along with the other things mentioned, then consider yourself healed well enough that you've regained your health back.  Repeat endoscopy's are really for those still having problems.
