Food Intolerance At The Beginning

4 posts in this topic

Hello everyone. I'm new here and was just recently diagnosed, but I'm feeling better for the first time in five years. Something I've noticed is as I get healthier, more and more foods bother me.

I started with removing gluten and felt a lot better, but then started noticing other foods were making me feel sick. After discussing it with my doctor and allergist, I first removed casein, then eggs, then soy and and finally corn.

With each removal I felt better and better (aside from accidental glutenings). I'm just wondering if anyone experienced this at the beginning and as they healed they were able to add some foods back into their diet ( I really miss the variety).

I did experience something like this, but I look at it a little differently.  As I eliminated many things I felt better.  Then I would relapse and find another thing that bothered me.  I got tested for antibodies for foods and felt it was a great help for me.  I cut out 49 of 60 foods tested.  I just found other foods to eat.   I felt better after about 4 days and my toe fungus began to heal.  Now, I eat food families in a four day rotation.  I have been successfully adding foods back in.  Some I won't ever try such as wheat and corn.

 

I hope you will find all of the foods you are intolerant to.  I suggest the four day rotational diet to help to discover what your intolerances are.  Keeping track of what you eat is good.  I actually have a month long schedule.  I don't have to write down what I ate, but can check back if I need to.

Food intolerances can change over time.  For me?  I just developed more and more of them.  :(  I did seem to outgrow dairy for a while but then it came back.  Daughter managed to get rid of most of hers though.

I'm not sure if I have celiac or gluten intolerance, as my celiac testing was inconclusive, but gluten does not work for me. After I went totally glutenfree I felt better than ever, then after a month I noticed eggs had become a problem, giving me the exact same symptoms as gluten. I also see the oats make me vomit and messes with my stomace, but don't think it givs the joint pain, anxietiy and so on. Soy gives me stomace pain. And now I think something else is bothering me as well, but I don't know what.

Like you, I hope to be able to reintroduse the foods again , I was hoping before christmass, but that does not seem likely...

    • I've been seeing my dr for a few weeks now about my stomach issues. We've ruled out the gallbladder and h-pylori and today I had the celiac blood tests done. From the reading I've done the past two days, it seems to me that it's highly likely that I have it. I've had digestive issues for years, but they've gotten progressively worse over the past 6 months or so. Pain and nausea when eating, bloat, eternal constipation, dh rash, at it's worse, tight cramp-like pain in a fist under my sternum, radiating through my back and around my right side keeping me up at night. Also heartburn/reflux and trouble swallowing, etc. 

      Anyway, about 2 months ago, I needed a change. I didn't go to the dr immediately because it seemed pointless. (I've mentioned stomach ache when eating to drs before and been blown off.) So, I started the Whole30 elimination diet (takes out soy, grains, dairy, peanuts, and leaves you basically eating meat & veggies). Figured it would show me what I needed to take out of my diet and hopefully feel better. It worked- I felt great! And it seems that grains and gluten are my biggest offenders. But, now I've been off gluten prior to celiac testing. It's been 7 weeks. After 4 weeks I tested steal cut oats, that I later found out were probably glutened. And then nothing until yesterday. Yesterday I had 2 pieces of bread and a muffin and today I had two pieces of bread and then the blood test. Is this going to be enough to show up on the tests? My dr said that it would probably show up, since I had some yesterday and today and was currently having symptoms. But, google seems to say that I should be glutened for 2 wks straight before testing. Has anyone tested positive after just a little gluten? If it's negative should I insist on doing it again after weeks back on gluten? I feel awful, but do want clear answers. Obviously, gluten's not going to be a part of my life any more either way. 
    • So just to clarify  had not consumed any gluten for about 4 days before testing. I was assured by my allergist that it wouldn't affect the test. But what was alarming was that she retested my food allergies (my most recent reaction was two weeks ago) and every food allergy I have came back negative. I don't understand how that is possible. These food allergies developed when I was 20 and I am almost 24 now.
    • Thanks! You too! I have learned from this experience to take charge of my own health. It's nice at least that we can try the gluten-free treatment without a firm diagnosis or a doctor confirming the disease. I've also felt some of the gluten withdrawal symptoms, and my stomach pain ebbs and flows, but I'm determined to stick with the gluten-free diet to see what a difference it makes. Gemini, thank you! This was really validating and useful for me to hear. I've felt so confused through this process and just want some answers. If the biopsy results do come back negative, I'm going to follow your advice and do the gluten-free diet with repeat blood testing after a while. If they come back positive, well, then I'll have my answer. I'm supposed to get them back next week.
    • I have celiac and eosinaphalic esophagitis.  I was put on a steroid inhaler recently.  I use it like an inhaler but swallow the air instead of breathing it in.  You may want to look into EOE and it's relationship to celiac.  Just a thought. My swallowing and celiac seem to be related.
    • You have eat gluten every single day until after testing. And the celiac blood test is supposed to be done as well.
