Body Rejecting Food..

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm really confused right now. I feel like anytime I eat anything my body rejects it. I put on a pair of gray pants that I bought a little bit ago, size 4, (i used to be a steady size 8 or 6) and they're hanging off of me. I ate lunch and my body rejected it and my stomach still hurts...it's almost like no matter what I eat, good or bad, my body doesn't keep it down. If it isn't a huge gas bubble upseting my stomach, it's explosive D...and I'm really careful about what I eat that I barely eat at all anymore just to at least try to feel somewhat normal, which i haven't since i was diagnosed 3 1/2 years ago...I feel like I"ll have spans of 2-3 months where I feel really good and have little to no problems and then 6 months where every day is a struggle...I don't have much if any health coverage, so I really don't know what to do.....Recently I've posted several questions on here and get little or no one responding...I hope this time is different, I'm really scared about this...

Today I packed my lunch...had some american cheese with oscar meyer honey ham...I thought that was on the "ok"list and the ingrediants seemed ok, but maybe that's the culprit for todays' issue..i don't know

Mahee..sorry you are having such a problem this far out from your DX. One suggestion I have is to watch liquids taken in as you eat meals, it was suggested to me to not use more than 1/4th cup @ mealtime. theory is that it thins food too much and food goes thru like 'dumping syndrome'. It sure helped me. Also wondering if you could have become sensitive to more foods than you were when DX'd?. The foods you mentioned I am not aware of problems with but other posters will have more info am sure. Do not give up, things will get better for you!! :) Take care of yourself, evie

you may want to stick with whole, unprocessed foods for a little while. the stuff you listed (american cheese and oscar meyer ham) have a bunch of ingredients in them, and I know that if my stomach isn't happy, those things aren't going to sit well in it. (well, I can't do the cheese anyway... that will never sit well in my stomach.) you don't have to eat plain (spices are also whole foods, with lots of flavor!) but unprocessed and whole foods may help for a while.

have you ruled out other food intolerances? (soy and dairy are big ones.)

I agree with Carla, Evie and Tiffany............it sounds like other food intolerances. All of the foods high in lectins will do the same thing as gluten to me (possibly without the villi damage, but not necessarily). The other day I got SO utterly sick of being on such a restricted diet, that I caved in and ate egg salad on gluten-free bread sticks (which are made with rice and potato flours), as well as some (a small bowl full) of mashed potatoes, and a little cheese.

And yesterday I had explosive D all day, sitting on the toilet for hours. NOTHING I ate on this binge contained ANY gluten at all (and this 'binge' really wasn't huge, I didn't eat large amounts of anything). But those foods contained rice flour, potatoes, soy (in the mashed potato flakes), corn starch and dairy. Also, I am quite achy, my joints are really hurting (which was predictable, of course).

You may want to eliminate ALL lectins for a while (for more info click on the 'lectins' link in my signature), unfortunately, this may very well be your answer. But better to lose some more foods, than being sick indefinitely, right? :unsure:

I went through this, which is why the majorityof my diet consists of foods that are naturally gluten-free and minimally processed. I avoid foods with a lot of additives and processing... whenever I get in a hurry and buy something that has more additives and is more processed I end up feeling terrible for days.

I've attempted the removing from dairy from the diet...it's strange...some days i can eat tons of ice cream and be completely fine, cheese...you name it, i'm golden...other days it seems to upset me...i talked to my doctor back at the beginning of this and he said it wasn't that......something about my bad vs. good bacteria being out of wack and taking medicine. which i'm horrible about taking medicine...but i'm trying!!

i try the unprocessed foods thing too, but it's pretty expensive and i'm struggling with finances right now...i used to eat a lot of rice but that bothered my stomach...the liquid thing could be a problem. i never thought of that, i drink more soda than I probably should with the amount of food that i actually take in...the carbination could be negatively affecting my stomach.

i just want to be normal :blink:

I'm sorry that this is happening to you--sometimes it seems that no matter what we eat and how careful we are, something is going to make us sick! :angry:

I am like Ursula--I could binge all day on foods that would make me sick and never consume a drop of gluten. Especially when our systems are damaged from gluten, there are many other foods or ingredients that can cause us reactions. I'm so much more sensitive to everything--gluten, tomatoes, all of my other intolerances (lectins, corn, tapioca, coconut, dairy).

I can only suggest what works for me, and that is to go to only whole, naturally gluten-free foods. Not always fun, but usually pretty effective. ;)

Just make some better choices with the same type foods you are eating, not necessarily more expensive. for one thing most of have a problem with lunch meats due to the sulfites, nitrites etc etc.

Try the Hormel all natural lunch meat, it comes in a brownish package in the regular lunch meat section and it says gluten free right on the package and all natural etc. this stuff is delicious (& I am a picky eater).

You can take this and take a big leaf of kale (I am on a kale kick at the moment) or leaf lettuce or a cabbage leaf, spread on some mayo, add the meat, grate a carrot on top of it, add some sliced tomato, and a slice of red onion, then I like to squit a little mustard on top of this - eat with a knife and fork & add in a huge dill pickle spear, YUMMY... forget the cheese :rolleyes::D

or cut it up and add to a salad.

or just make a roll up with the meat and lettuce, or roll up in a heated corn tortilla...

also, since it is getting close to the holidays, anyone that wants a Honey baked Ham, just call your store & ask for a ham without the glaze on it, they usually ask for one day's notice. but one time I walked in and got the other half of a ham that someone had ordered without a glaze!!! The lady said that they keep it for one day before adding the glaze to it...

Hi there -

Just wanted to echo what the other posters said - whole, naturally gluten-free foods are the best for you. They also happen to be the cheapest (most of the time). Good luck!

I echo the other suggestions. I would also take a good digestive enzyme before you eat. It helps me with pain, bloating and gas.

Echo too!

I feel for you. I can be doing so well. Not even making changes and POW! Can't even keep water down.

It is really scarey.

Last August I was on vacation the maid called an ambulance I looked so bad. They made sure I wasn't on drugs and sent me home in the same condition. A few days later it went away as fast as it came on. It has hapened twice since.

I have no clue. I am gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, low acid, no spices......and it still happens.

Good luck! Post the answer if you find one. I'll be watching. : )

    • I know-pretty dumb. I'm usually very careful. I didn't check into it. Thanks for reply. DebLee
    • LexieA, This thread might help you. You say you never have "heartburn/GERD". You can have something called Silent Reflux. It  could also be NERD. some of these links are in this thread but I will post some releavent information in this reply as well. here is a good overview of the difference in this fox news article. http://www.foxnews.com/health/2012/11/13/gerd-or-nerd-new-type-acid-reflux-doesnt-respond-to-drugs.html but if your throwing up it is probably from Bile Relfux. . . . instead of acid reflux. I actually wrote a blog post on celiac.com about these conditions. the NYTimes article called Bile Reflux a "Shadowland" in Medicine and part of the reason for the title of the post. here is the NYtimes article about some of the issues you are describing. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/30/health/30brod.html throwing up is actually a protective reaction. and this normally protect us from poison's or food poisioning etc. but when our biofeedack loop is broken down like having bile in the stomach instead of the small intestine . . . it can be hard to break this cycle. The green portion is probably the bile portion. It is actually very caustic as Plumbago pointed out.  this would/coul scald our insides (lower GI/Small Intestines). Normally stomach acid is neutralized by bile after it leaves the stomach . .. not while in the stomach. I wouldn't never recommend anybody do this on purpose . .. but if you are already puking your food up then simply buy a pH test kit. testing your food/chyme/puke (food outside the body) you will quickly get an idea of how acidic/basic your food chyme (digested food) is. It will almost be a pH of 4.0 or more. the paleo nurse explains this well why strong stomach acid is important to your health. http://thepaleonurse.com/the-truth-about-stomach-acid-why-low-stomach-acid-is-jeopardizing-your-health/ quoting the paleonurse. "In the infinite wisdom of the human body, the stomach was designed to produce the acid that is necessary for proper digestion of food.  When functioning properly, the parietal cells of the stomach secrete hydrochloric acid that bring the stomach pH to a range of approximately 1.5 to 3.0" if it is a higher pH than this you can benefit from taking BetaineHCL to restore your stomach acid to more natural level. . . especially if you are not already taking PPI's since a proton pump inhibitor is lowering stomach acid. .. . by their very ability to cut off almost all stomach acid production. **** this is not medical advice I only know taking powdered stomach acid (BetaineHCL capsules)  helped me. I was not barfing my meals though. . . so your experience my be different. Maybe Ennis_tx will comment because he has some of the same symptom's/issues. But if I was puking I think I would be curios to know what my pH really is? And not Assume? anything at this point. If you test your stomach pH with easy to buy pH strips you will know whether it really is high pH (low stomach acid or a little stomach acid as your describe it) or low pH (really high stomach aid) that is causing the issue's. Once you know for sure you  will know who to go about correcting it. Supplementing with BetaineHCL is fairly harmless . . .unless you have an ulcer. And you will/would probably know it instantly if you take some BetaineHCL and it feels like someone is putting out a cigarette in the middle of your stomach.  It is acid burning your sore/ulcer. thankfully eating protein/food quickly neutralizes/raises stomach acid especially when taken with a glass of water. staying hydrated with a meal also helps improve digestion so be sure to take some water/drink like a tea or juice etc. for example if you want to the BetaineHCL to work properly. Milk has the opposite effect.  If you feel a burning milk can coat the lining of your stomach helping to erase/ease the effect of strong acid. And why people who eat hot **** five alarm peppers aka known as Hot heads keep milk close by if they need to dampen the fire in their stomachs from eating too many peppers. . . . and drinking water can aggravate this practice of eating the hottest peppers you can find. I hope this is helpful. I have rambled on long enough. be sure to read the sickboy user in the medhelp thread of how he helped his GERD/bile reflux. here is medhelp link for easy reference included in the "silent reflux" thread if you haven't read it yet. https://www.medhelp.org/posts/Gastroenterology/UNCONTROLLABLE-BILE-REFLUX-PLEASE-HELP/show/738242?page=1 he was suffering for 5 years and got better so don't lose hope. It can seem very daunting but people on this board do get better. we have used different methods but people do get better. again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me. good luck on your continued journey but it is not a long way back if you know the way. 2 Corinthians (KJV) 1:3,4 3) “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4) who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them (sufferer still suffering)   which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” posterboy by the grace of God,    
    • LOL sorry but really? You trust that, dominos, papa johns, and pizza hut ALL say they can not 100% guarantee their gluten-free pizza are celiac safe. THEY USE the same prep areas, same ingredient bins, same ovens and in many cases the same cutters and spoons used to spread the sauces and cut the pizza. I doubt the employees would even bother changing gloves between pizzas during rush.   Seriously if you want a gluten free pizza....gut a premade one in the freezer section from UDI, Dayia, RealGoodPizza or a crust from cappellos or califlower foods and make your own....Here please save yourself here is a list. BTW Pizza hut uses UDI crust and just tops them with their sauce etc....CCing in most cases and delivering them. Also the REAL good pizza will mail you cases of their pizzas fully made. Califlour foods and capello will mail you empty crust by the case. SO you can order them if  local stores do not carry them.

    • My MRI has been clear. They did a spinal tap back in May which was also good.  MS ruled out many times. All my symptoms match Gluten Ataxia, but I don't know for sure since I don't have a dx. However, I DO have Hashimotos so at least going Gluten Free is necessary for that. I go to my Rheumatologist on Jan. 30th, 2018. Can a Rheumatologist determine Gluten Ataxia? If so how long should I be back on Gluten for testing?  Thanks for the heads up on Free and Clear products. I will look into that.
