Dear Friends,

I am new here and hoping someone might help me with a question I have.

Is intolerance to vegetables and fruits also part of Celiac Disease? My horrible symptoms still come if I eat fruits and vegetables (and gluten, of course). So not only do I skip the bread and pasta, I have to skip the veggies, salads, etc. I'm just wondering if anyone else has had the same experience?

I'm very much enjoying the entire forum messages and so glad I discovered this place.

Thanks for any help!

Welcome, Jan.

No, intolerance to fruits and veggies are not part of celiac. As you are healing, maybe you're just sensitive to raw or lightly cooked veggies. I have to cook mine until they're soft right now. And salads don't agree with me either. Maybe you could try soft fruits (peaches, bananas), and cooked veggies and see how you do.

Maybe you could try something like peeled apples and pears and see how you do.

You may need to go down to a very basic diet for 3 weeks and then start adding in one food a week to see how you do.

Are you sure there isn't any hidden gluten? Have you checked personal care products, etc. Is your household gluten free?

If your intestines are damaged, you are more likely to have a hard time eating food. My son would vomit carrots cooked or not every time. Two years gluten free and he can eat them no problems.

I would double check all personal products especially toothpaste and lipgloss.

    • Yes! Sweat, heat & humidity drove me crazy with aggravating the dh! DH likes to attack pressure points too. Like AWOL said, waistbands & such. I had to get boy shorts type underwear that were seamless ( I like all cotton). they still had a little seam on one side that ran for about 2". That 2" killed me so I figured out that if I wore them inside out, then the seam did not affect me. Forget a bra!!!!!!! NOPE, no way!!!!! Even now, when I wear jeans, the button part at the front makes dh flare, also where they wrinkle at the torso to leg area when you sit down --- I still get flares there. My dh liked to hit scars too. Old scars, new scars. 
    • Bigchan, welcome to the forum! Your narrative is not an uncommon one. Many report that after going gluten free they still show inflammatory disease markers in followup testing. I wish it were the case that going gluten free is the magic bullet that we all have expected it to be at the outset of the Celiac journey. As more evidence mounts over the years from medical science studying this disease it turns out it is more complex than was first thought. Gluten may not be the only trigger of inflammation for a lot of Celicacs. And there is something called refractory Celiac disease (unresponsive to a gluten free diet, no reversal). Sorry, I don't mean to discourage you. And certainly, don't give up gluten free eating. I think there is still so much medical science doesn't know about these kind of autoimmune conditions. In the mean time, do the best you can and enjoy life. Each day is a gift. Having a condition like this can take over your life if you let it. Don't.
    • You could try the gluten free diet for six months then have your antibody levels remeasured.  If the  tTG IgA goes down, it would suggest that gluten was causing your body to make that antibody.  Celiac damage can be missed in an endoscopy.
    • Be forewarned & print this article out & take it to the doc with you. Many people with DH have no digestive symptoms and only about 40% of them have the positive blood tests (serology) for celiac disease. However, they almost always have the same, gluten-dependent intestinal damage as those with the more common symptoms of celiac disease.  From: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh/ To reiterate...... that is 60% of those with dh test negative on the celiac serum panel.
    • Yeah I found "scents" Cologne and artificially overly smell things make me feel nasiuated and sick. I love just baking spices in the oven as it is the only fragrances I can stomach in my house....Heck that one time I spilled Italian seasoning and vacuumed it up....OMG my house smelled like olive garden...it was wonderful...other times i just put some apple pie or pumpkin spice on a foil sheet and preheat my oven with it then turn it off and open the door...

      As for other scents natural orange scented body wash does not bother me...I found orange is a small I tolerate well. I did end up making my own cologne ....this is odd but I got some leather oil and mixed it with refined coconut oil and dab it on my wrist, neck, ....funny but I love the smell of that fresh leather. Perhaps this might work with say essential oils for lavender, or orange?
