Elimination Diet

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed as a Coeliac 2 years ago and despite being strictly gluten-free my antibodies haven't cleared up and my symptoms haven't improved much, which is really annoying as it's such a crappy diet to have to follow! I've tried cutting out dairy products as well but can't say it made any difference.

Someone on this site recommended digestive enzymes which I find actually do relieve the bloating, so thanks for that.

Has anyone tried going on an elimination diet to find out what else is bugging them? Did it work?

Regards, Bob

I have never tried it myself, but have had many celiac disease friends who have had to go on an elimination diet. The common theme seems to be that you need to keep a strict diary, start by cutting out everything but the basics that you KNOW are okay cold turkey, then adding back foods, one at a time. If you add one at a time, you can easily pinpoint the offending food and then eliminate it.

It seems that for a lot of celiacs allergies to soy, corn, tomatoes, nuts, and dairy go hand in hand with the disease.

Add eggs and yeast to that also. Many people have a problem with those.

Bob, I'm glad the digestive enzymes are helping. And I do hope that you find relief. An elimination diet might be hard to do, but you might find it was worth it. Good luck.

God bless,

Mariann

I did the elimination diet and that's when I felt the best. My problem is I added some food in too fast because I had to travel and got sick again.

It definitely works though and I would highly suggest it to anyone with food sensitivities.

Just a side note, Bob. It was no miraculous cure ;) , but there was noticeable improvement. I'm still healing and am waiting for that day to actually feel GOOD and I can't wait! :)

Good luck!

Just wondering, what digestive enzymes are helping you? I was told I'm sensitive to gluten (without having the celiac disease) as well as lactose intolerant/milk allergic. Although I'm avoiding these foods, I'm still having bloating issues. I'm wondering if it's the goat cheese (my naturopath said was okay) ...Also, can you have diet soft drinks (are some people more sensitive than others to the bubbles?)

If anyone could give me some advice, I'd greatly appreciate it!

Thanks much.

Hi Bevo, I'm English so I just went to a Health Food shop over here and asked for some digestive enzyme tablets. They gave me some called Enzyme Digest, made by a company called Quest Vitamins. According to the blurb they contain something called "betaine HCI". Don't understand the science but I take a couple every time I eat and they've definitely helped with the bloating!

Hope this helps, good luck, Bob.

    • Hi Nikkster, They often call the celiac testing a celiac panel.  There is also a celiac screening test they sometimes do first, the ttg.  You want to get the full celiac panel if possible.  Not everyone shows up on just the screening test.
    • Maybe get your vitamin D levels checked.  And take some K-2. K-2 is supposed to help vitamin D absorb into bones.  Oh, and skip the Dominos next time! We all make mistakes at times,.
    • I am actually trying to bulk up and body build with this disease. I go with a keto diet of fats and protein, I use vegan protein powders throughout the day. I used to use nutrakey V-Pro and now mostly use MRM Veggie Elite, blend, and do my own mixes with Naked Pea, Jarrow Pumpkin seed, MRM Sancha Inchi, and various blends from Julian Bakery pegan line. I use them in shakes with almond butter or sunflower butter sometimes using macadamia, pecan, etc. If I can get them and drink it throughout the day. I found large omelettes and quiche made with coconut flour and almond flour with leafy greens mixed in every day for breakfast works out great. I found some nut based breads (found online then started making my own in my bakery) and eat them toasted with avocado. And I always have 1 scoop pumpkin protein (great for recovery) and 1 scoop pea protein before bed. I sometimes take extra BCAAs from Jarrow to help prevent muscle break down Try adding a bit of coconut oil to everything to get in more fats.   <.< recently trying some T boosters but not seeming much from them.
      Keto Fat bombs...look them up made with nut butters, coconut, coconut oil, and protein powder versions great way to stack on the calories.
    • I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but  instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any  pre-made  variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filling meal? There's no reason a chili should include gluten btw, but if they're telling you that there's a high probability of cc its best not to eat there in any case!   Edit: checked their site:  https://www.skylinechili.com/special-dietary-options.php#glutenfree They're basically telling you there could be cc  
    • I live in Cincinnati. One thing we are known for is chili and a horrible football team. I was wondering if anyone had one of those gluten detectors and how they work because I would love to test them. They claim to be gluten-free and even state that in their restaurants there is a high probability for CC. I even wrote the company several times but no reply. I just had some earlier and am up with a reaction to something. I'm leaning towards the chili. Is there any good canned chili out there that will not make me sick?
