Reintroduced Foods And Still Intolerant?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I do have leaky gut and tested intolerant to 55+ foods. About six weeks ago, I decided to start reintroducing a few. I hadn't had egg yolks or bananas in five months and they were a no go. I hadn't had dairy in over a year and OUCH! It is WORSE than before!

Does this mean I should scratch these off the list forever? I have stopped reintroducing foods. It's not worth it to feel lousy.

Anyone have success in reintroducing foods that you were not successful reintroducing previously? If so, how long did you wait?

No. I was diagnosed with a few food allergies and lots of inhalant ones many years ago. I avoided these for a few years. Later, I was able to add eggs back into my diet, but only baked in cookies, etc. Thinking that I have been feeling pretty darn good these last few weeks (aside from a hyperthyroid), I ate an egg for the first time in 20 years! I soft boiled it. Bad choice. I am still reacting to it and it has been five days. I can say that early strict avoidance has calmed down my reactions. Perhaps I should not have not tested eggs during the height of pollen season! Will try again next winter.

I know someone who is allergic to a certain fish but only during the springtime when a particular pollen is out. That is so random! I am beginning to believe that stress can cause the body to be more reactive. At least, that's what I'm telling myself ;). I am not going to reintroduce intolerant foods until my life conditions ease up. I hope it's that simple.

Failed every challenge these past three years -- but am starting to get some things back in moderation:

 

fresh cheeses, butter, cream, corn and rice thus far

 

-- of course this is since I started with mast cell medications (histamine and mast cell blockers), so I'm not the best example.

Yum! That's good to know. Whenever I start reading those threads, I mentally check out. I'm assuming if I have these issues, they will make themselves obvious... Maybe on a strong day, I'll do some light reading!

    • Do not eliminate gluten until all celiac related testing is done. Just keep to your usual diet making sure to eat at least a couple slices of bread worth of gluten daily.  I was thought to have RA for a time but it did turn out to be gluten. Within a few months gluten free my joint pain was a thing of the past...at least till age caught up with me. You may want to call your doctors office and speak with a nurse. have the nurse ask the doctor to either call in or let you pick up a lab slip. that way you will have the results of the celiac panel at your visit.  
    • Perhaps you know that mucus is actually very alkaline. It's what protects the lining of your stomach from gastric acid. And bile, compared to gastric acid, is alkaline too. I'm sorry you're still feeling so badly, but I'm not sure why you think stomach acid is the source of your problem. I'm not saying it's not, but until you're tested....
    • You need to stay on gluten while any celiac related testing is being done. Have they done an MRI? Folks with gluten ataxia will have lesions called 'UBO's" or unidentified bright objects. They are similiar to the lesions found in MS. If found they will sometimes do a spinal tap to rule out MS. If you haven't already do get a celiac panel run along with your B12 levels.  Low B12 is not uncommon with celiac and can cause nerve related issues. As to the original query. If you are concerned get a 'free and clear' product. There shouldn't be an issue gluten wise but some folks are sensitive to scents and chemicals.
    • Hi there, I'm 49 years old and have always been fairly healthy apart forma few back issues.  However, for the past year I have been struggling with crippling joint pain in my hips and shoulders.  After months working with a physio and no improvement, I was finally referred to a rheumatologist and tested for rheumatoid arthritis but all tests have so far come back negative.  On and off I've also been suffering with stomach issues, roiling nauseous gurgling stomach (almost like a hangover) and feeling drained and ill by 4pm in the afternoon.  While googling my stomach symptoms I came across celiac diseas and discovered that many people suffer also chronic joint pain.    Now I'm putting the pieces together and wondering if gluten could be causing all my pain.  I'll be seeing my doctor in 3 weeks and in the meantime should I eliminate gluten from my diet to see if that alleviates my smptoms or would that prevent me from getting a positive result for celiac disease ?  
    • Eating a Dominos pizza with all the possible CC is something I would not do.  I don't think having a reaction to it makes you "super sensitive".
