Intolerances - How Do You Know?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Alright, so here's my situation.

 

I have never had any digestive issues in my life. No bloating or anything (so i remember).

 

However, i have had bad acne from when i was about 14 years old, up until right about 21. (I am 21 now, and i started gluten free about 3 months ago).

 

I am now Gluten, Dairy and Grain free, and my Acne is almost completely gone, which is great!

 

I really want to add some rice or potatoes back into my diet, but when my only symptoms are some pimples here and there, i find it incredibly hard to decide if i am intolerant to something.

 

If i ate rice, and immediately felt bloated an uncomfortable, that would be great, because then i would know for sure.

But if i eat rice, and feel great for a couple of days (maybe weeks) and then start getting bad skin all of a sudden, that would suck a lot, because i DONT want to have bad skin again :(.

 

I hope you understand my "problem".

 

Best regards.

Lasse.

I would imagine that any skin reactions (new acne) you would have to food sensitivities would be within a day or so of the exposure and the dispappear within a week or so once the offending food is out of your system, but I'm not well versed in this area. Hopefully someone else can offer you advice.  :)  Best wishes.

Dairy caused pimples for me when I was younger.  Now at 54 I just get stomach issues.  I have had blood and hair tests for intolerances.  They worked for me but some people find them iffy.

Welcome Lasse!

 

I think I understand what you are saying.

 

Here is what I would suggest to one of my kids....

 

Keep eating what you know to be "clean" foods for you for a bit more time.

 

Then try ONE of the foods you would like back....since you see results in the skin I suggest eating the item -- let's say rice for a few days and then wait at least two weeks before trialing another food.

 

Glad you found some improvement...hang with it :)

 

PS...be sure to journal the results...this trial thing can be a real b%$@#.

I had blood tests for antibodies to various foods and they helped me to know what to avoid and what to take a break from.  After some time I began to add back foods that I had low levels of antibodies to and have so far added them back without problems. 

 

A rotational diet, only eating each food family every 4 days, helped me too.  It became easier and easier to pinpoint which foods gave me issues.

 

If you have villi damage you may need digestive enzymes to break down your food while healing takes place.

    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
    • Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulled pork with slaw and fries.  
    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
    • ....post is 12 years old, please check the dates, On a side note to this topic, I had no gluten issues with tide but it caused itching for other reasons I went with Rockin Green and Mollys Suds for a natural detergent years ago. You get like 70-90loads from a bag try, Amazon, Luckyvitamin, or Thrive for them.
    • Really interesting point Kareng.  In fact, my ttg went up this autumn (November), depressingly, and I saw a nutritionalist earlier this month and she doesn't want to retest til March.  She felt it was too soon for those figures, too.
