Different Foods... Different Symptoms

10 posts in this topic

Hi! I'm new here and don't know if this is the right place to post, but does anyone else notice that some foods and drinks bother you more than others? Certain foods will leave me cramping and hurting for days, but some foods just make me feel a little tired? Also, does anyone have some problems with small white bumps on their arms after being glutened? My doctor says it's due to a Vitamin A deficiancy. My mom and sister have the same problems but they aren't celiacs. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, and welcome to this board. Yes, I do react quite differently to foods I am intolerant to. Which foods bother you? And what are your symptoms? If you tell us more, we will be able to hopefully help you better.

Welcome. I joined last Monday. I hope someone can give you pointers on the skin. My sister and my mom and I all have celiac and a variety of skin problems. Dermatologists can help but we usually got some type of cream. Cortisone, Meto creme, triamicinolone is working for me now. I have more than white bumps.

About food sensitivity. I am still unraveling my mystery. Read and post questions and you will learn a lot.

Before I was celiac I became vegetarian. 25 years ago.

I eliminated eggs, (except in bake goods and noodles) about 15 years ago.

I was diagnosed celiac 5 years ago. Stopped gluten. I got really sick for 2 years. I ended up not being able to keep anything down.

So, I figured out my stuff so far by elimination.

I began with white potato, margerine, salt, water. 3 months later I realized the iodine in the salt was a problem.

For 3 months I tried to eat a balanced gluten free vegetarian diet with out processed foods. I was still sick.

I eliminated dairy. I was still sick. I eliminated night shade vegetables. I was still sick. I eliminated salycilcates(wrong spelling). I am still sick. Adding enzymes, right now. I am also wondering about corn and soy.

Well welcome to a great group of folks who have a wealth of experience. Being a member for only one week has given me direction, hope, and the understanding that was so lacking. Thanks everyone!

I'd hate to tell your doctor he's wrong about the bumps.. but we've been discussing this on Delphi Avoiding Corn and several of us get it as a symptom of getting into something we're allergic to.. aka allergic reaction, much like breaking out with acne can be because of allergies. My bumps only went away when I switched laundry soaps. They come back now and then if I get into something, but they go away as soon as my system is clear of the allergen.

And yes some of my food intolerances just make me a little tired, while others (usually my IgE allergies) will mess me up for days.

Me too. I almost forgot that a bunch of the skin rashes cleared up when I eliminated soaps, lotions and cosmetics. The only thing I use now are baby oil, pantene/sauve shampoo a couple times a week, and dishwashing detergent.

I had 10 potato chips Sat. Sunday night I was covered with ???...mosquito bites? I have not been outside in over a week so it must be the potato.

Last Tuesday, I got glutened... BAD! Being new to this I thought, "Oh Chicken and Rice soup, I can have that." Not so, I found out about 1 hour later. Since then I have been sick and broken out on my arms with those little bumps. I switched back to baby shampoo and body wash and the rash has cleared up significantly. However, I am still feeling a little sluggish. Also, is Malt Extract Powder (barley) bad? ... It sounds that way, but a friend brought some chocolate back from Switzerland and I am dying to try it.

Yes, malt extract obviously has gluten, and you better give it away before you give into the temptation!

I guess you live and learn! Thanks for saving me from a tremendous amount of pain.

I know it seems like I am asking tons of stupid questions (at least I feel I am), but my doctor told me to try the diet and didn't really give me any information. This site has been a life saver!

I am amazed everyone seems to get glutened and realize a reaction.

I don't know that I have been glutened by mistake since I as diagnosed.

Since being diagnosed I have felt worse, not better.

I don't vomit as much, and the skin seems to be slowly improving but on the flip side I now have headaches fevers, sluggishness, mindfog, memory loss, a mass in my stomach (no one seems to be alarmed about) and sometimes for no apparent reason I just hurt all over, lose my mind and lay down too limp to move. These episodes last 5 minutes to 15 hours.

I am hoping that I can really get on board taking enzymes. I realized last night that I was having trouble taking l-glutamine with .5 grams and my doctor wants me to take 40 grams. Any advice on how to get from 1 gm to 40 gms with the least amount of trouble?

    • I'm celiac for less than 3 months.   I'm starting to get concern about getting all the necessary vitamins being gluten free.   Recently my joint pain has increased, pulsating pain in my head, and sore areas in legs and neck have started recently.  Or course, anxiety too. I'm currently taking a Centrum Men's Multivitamin.  Here's what in it: Vitamin A 3,500 IU (29 % as Beta - Carotene)  70%
      Vitamin C 90mg  150%
      Vitamin D 1,000 IU  250%
      Vitamin E 45IU  150%
      Vitamin K 60mcg  75%
      Thiamin 1.2mg  80%
      Riboflavin 1.3mg  76%
      Niacin 16mg  80%
      Vitamin B6 2mg  100%
      Folic Acid 200 mcg  50%
      Vitamin B 126mcg  100%
      Biotin 40mcg  13%
      Pantothenic Acid 15mg  150%
      Calcium 210mg  21%
      Iron 8 mg  44%
      Phosphorus 20 mg  2%
      Iodine 150mcg  100%
      Magnesium 100 mg  25%
      Zinc 11mg  73%
      Selenium 100mcg  143%
      Copper 0.9mg  45%
      Manganese 2.3mg 115%
      Chromium 35mcg  29%
      Molybdenum 50mcg  67%
      Chloride 72 mg  2% Potassium 80 mg  2%   I really can't believe after being diagnoses that my doctor didn't get me a list of recommend supplements to include the vitamin deficiencies by not having gluten in my diet.   Everyone has to do it on their own. I don't really want to avoid taking a bunch of pills in the morning if I can.   But I'm concerned I'm not getting enough Magnesium and Iron.   Other too? Any recommendations of supplements to increase what I'm currently taking.   Or just on supplement that includes everything I need? Thx.            
    • As far as the grey hair goes, I understand how you feel as I started going seriously grey in my mid 20's also.  As cyclinglady stated, there is nothing you can do about that except color you hair or live with the grey hair.  I chose to color it. Grey hair is generally either a genetic thing or it can be the result of vitamin deficiencies or illness.  It also can't be reversed, which would be heavenly, I agree! You definitely need a full  thyroid panel done because you cannot diagnose Hashi's on antibodies alone.  I have Hashi's so know the drill.  No doctor should tell people to just go gluten free without some level of testing for Celiac.  Those with Hashi's can benefit greatly from going gluten free but that is because those that it helps noticeably also probably do have full blown Celiac.....without Celiac or non-Celiac gluten sensitivity, the gluten-free diet won't help. The supplement you mentioned is just that....a supplement.  If you do have true Hashi's, you'll need more than that to help keep thyroid function normal for you.  I think you need to see another doctor because your doc is missing the boat here.  You really should have a full thyroid panel done and a full Celiac panel.  It is important to diagnosis (or not) these 2 conditions early so you won't have more problems down the road.  Can you request more blood work?
    • Lotions used topically are not a concern at all unless they contain gluten and you ingest them into your mouth.  Gluten has to get into your GI tract, (which begins in your mouth) for damage to occur.  Ditto for hair care products.  As most salons have you bend your head back into a sink to wash, the odds of any shampoo or conditioner getting into your mouth are slim to none. If you shower and let the soap and water run down your face, then make your home shampoo/products gluten free.  
    • YES get the blood test and the endoscope done if you can, if your doctor will put the dia. formally on your records without these then your blessed in a way. I had a similar issues getting mine done. You have to be eating gluten for 12 weeks at least a half slice of bread a day for the antibodies to build up for the blood testing, 2 weeks for the damage etc to show up in a endoscope.
    • I was diagnosed about 7 weeks ago, and have been gluten-free since. A few slip-ups, mind you, that I paid for.  I was diagnosed on my symptoms only. However, I understand there is a more definitive diagnosis with a blood test.   Is it recommended that I get this done?  Thanks.
