How Many Have Trouble Digesting All Proteins?

6 posts in this topic

I think that I finally understand what happens when I eat too much protein. The other night I had a big slice of meatloaf. The next day, I had intestinal cramping, I get dizzy, and my calves swell, heart palpitations and i just feel crummy.

I was wondering if anyone has this happen to them, and also will it always be this way? First I thought was nightshades, then I thought it was salicylates....I am making myself crazy. :blink:

I had testing from enterolab for eggs, soy and yeast. The eggs and soy came back very high, but the yeast was fine. Is this just a coincidence?

I completely understand your frustration! My intolerance list seems to just keep on growing. I currently eat a fat-free, sugar-free, vegan diet. I found that I can't digest any proteins either (besides beans, which aren't too high in protein really). Fatty acids are also a major issue for me, as well as anything with sugar (besides some fruits). I get terrible cramping too, and constipation (so the cramping doesn't go away). And my stomach is ALWAYS bloated. I sympathize with you!

Did you make the meatloaf? Silly question, I know. But I'm pretty sure my mom makes meatloaf with eggs and bread crumbs. It could be that there was something in the meatloaf that cause a reaction.

Inability to digest protein is a symptom of h. pylori, it would be a good thing to get checked out.

Two weeks ago, I had an endoscopy done to see how things were healing. The GI says all looks good, though my stomach is still a little inflamed. The biopsy came back fine. At the end of this month, I have an appointment to see a ND. What I eat one day, might make me sick the next day. I just can't figure it out. This weekend my son was home from college. It was a full weekend of food and goodies. I am sure that I will paying for it the rest of the week. Once in a while a girl's gotta live :D

ps. My son has celiacs too...all goodies were gluten-free

Can you eat dairy still? Cottage cheese has protein and I have no trouble with it, also peanut butter is protein. We all do need some protein and I get mine with these, along with chichen breast and some fish. I too can't eat red meats, turkey, or even the darker meat of chicken. I can't eat the beans either, like pinto, kidney, and such--I think it's the skins though maybe! My mom always made meatloaf with oatmeal in it and it always upset my tummy when I was young, so I developed a dislike for it--I don't even miss it! ;)

    • No anti-sm(lupus)? Yes, anti dsDNA is for SLE(lupus). No ENA panel,anti-RNP, anti-SS-A, anti-SS-B, anti histone, scl-70, etc? I'd ask for a referral, if you feel that there is something going on. I think that would be a logical step because of the positive ANA and lack of investigation. 1:640 is definitely positive. 
    • My MCH is always high too. Have some other oddities but doc always say labs are great as well. I dont think they ever really bother with the MCH. I'm also in testing and showed negative on the same ones you did. My IGA is fine though. As far as the other tests, maybe your girls GI can order or you could try your primary. 
    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
