Peanut Butter Intolerance?
0

14 posts in this topic

I've noticed that I can't handle peanut butter very well. I've always attributed it to the fat content, because I don't digest fat well at all, but now I'm thinking it might be a food intolerance. I threw out my peanut butter today.

I don't eat any other form of peanuts. Is there anything else related to this I should watch for?

What brand of peanut butter were you eating?

Peanuts and Soybeans are from the same family. If you are allergic or intolerant to soy the likelihood of becoming allergic/intolerant to peanuts is higher. I don't know percentages. Also if you don't use natural peanut butter maybe the hydrogenated oils are bothering you.

Hi Elizabeth--I also react to peanut butter :angry: I actually am intolerant to all legumes (which includes peanuts). How do you do with soy, beans, string beans, peas, chic peas? Those are all legumes, (I seem to be intolerant to every one of them) Not long ago, I asked Robb over in the Sports/Fitness Forum about legumes and he said that people who have autoimmune disease sometimes have problems with legumes--and most lectins. He explains in the thread titled "Introduction".

I also have a problem with peanut butter :( darn it that it's so good.

Another angle outside of what Patti (jerseyangel) and Andrea mentioned is the mold content of peanuts. If you are allergic/sensitive to molds then peanut butter can be a problem.

Thanks for the replies!!!

I was eating JIF - I'd seen somone say that it was gluten-free? And it was a new container - no CC issues.

I don't usually have problems with beans and I try to limit my intake of soy, but it doesn't seem to bother me when I do eat it.

I'm sure the mold content and the hydrogenated oils could be a factor.

Interesting. Thanks everyone!!!

I eat Jif with no problems. Is the jar you are eating from possibly contaminated?

I'm like patti- no legumes including peanut butter which KILLS me as I LOVE it. I wonder a lot if it had to do anything with how much I ate before being diagnosed because I had NO appetite and it was the only thing I craved and helped me keep some weight on. I miss it!

Also, try a new jar of it before you give up totally- go for one without soybean oil (I think Peter Pan is noy soybean oil based).

I can't handle peanuts, beans or peas either. I eat almond butter instead. More expensive but yummy.

Peanuts have a high mold content, so if you're allergic to mold, that may be the problem. I'm sensitive to them and fruit juice because of the mold. I use almond butter and do fine with it.

I switched to cashew butter.

Do you have problems with other peanut products like anything fried in peanut oil? That might be another way to test for the peanut issue.

I can't handle fat very well, so I don't eat anything with oil. Peanut butter is really the only form of peanuts I got (since I just cut it out).

Wow, I just posted a new topic relating closely to this one. I read the first few pages of posts before posting and somehow missed this thread!

I just wanted to say that I also have a major problem with peanuts, peanut butter, soy, lentils, and beans. Peas don't seem to bother me much. But, Elizabeth, it's not just you, as you can see!

Almond butter is very good, as someone else mentioned. I have also heard cashew butter is great.

I just recently had to give up peas - just as mine in the garden were coming on too - I love those fresh peas, right out of the garden.

    • You are normal!  All the things you are going through are normal for someone with celiac disease....probably with any life changing illness.  What you need is patience.  Most here take a year to heal or longer due to setbacks on the diet or healing from systemic damage.  The nervous system seems to take the longest.  Ask your doctor to check you for any deficiencies.  No sense guessing what you might need.  It is a common and recommended practice to check for vitamin and mineral deficiencies.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-common-nutrient-deficiencies-might-an-adult-experience-prior-to-diagnosis/ Once healed, you might not need any supplements, if you eat a wide and varied healthy diet.  
    • Yes!  Ask for the IgA deficiency test!  Why?  Well, your doctor did not even follow protocol.  In order to validate the IgA celiac tests, he should have determined if you are IgA deficient or not. http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf  I have never tested positive on the IgG tests and only had one positive on the IgA DGP test, but I was not IgA deficient, so my GI knew that my test was valid and I needed an endoscopy to confirm my diagnosis.  You do not know if any of your tests are valid.  You need the IgA test.  It is a control test only in the case of diagnosing celiac disease.  But....some celiacs are low in IgA and that seems to happen more often in celiacs than the general population.   https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2017/07/dunkirk-is-a-stunningly-spare-survival-film/534252/
    • Almost EVERY single celiac expert in the world and/or groups like the U.K./U.S. Gastroenterologist Associations recommend obtaining biopsies for diagnosing celiac disease.  There are some exceptions.  If you are too ill to even risk an endoscopy, your celiac panel is extremely high on several of the celiac tests (this is still debatable), you have long wait times in getting the endoscopy (government health wait times) or you can not afford to get one are all acceptable.   You know your situation and will have to determine what is best based on your doctor's input.   The blood tests are not 100% accurate.  Heck, I tested positive only to a really odd one (the DGP IGA).  I had no noticeable symptoms.  I chose the endoscopy.  I never wanted to doubt my diagnosis as my hubby went Gluten Free some 16 years ago based on the poor advice of two medical doctors.  He got well, but does he really have celiac disease?  He would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical, yes, medical.   I hope this helps.  Best to research like you are doing so that you feel comfortable and committed.  
    • No, I didn't get a endoscopy or even  a blood test. I got digestive as well as other problems though on a number of occasions after being gluten free and accidentally eating something with gluten.  My symptoms were severe and dramatic so it was obvious to me that I had celaic disease.  I would ask the doctor what the endoscopy test is for and if there is any reason to take it besides confirming the blood tests.  From what I have read a false positive result on a blood test is unlikely but I don't know for sure. 
    • Thankyou for your advice i am getting so confused as some people are saying you dont need the biopsy and others are saying you do need it as it comes with other tests connected to thyroid, iron etc? just want to start being gluten free asap! did you go for the endoscopy?
