Hi:

New to this board and this problem. Have been on the IBS board for years. Have had IBS for over 40 years and just recently diagnosed with celiac (though we will be doing another blood test next week).

Little difficult as my diet is already restricted. I am a vegetarian for 30 years and a vegan for 6 years. I also did a food allergy test last year and tested positive for soy, broccoli, cane sugar, and some other foods. Will retest later this year as insurance does not cover and it is an expense.

One of my questions is that I read somewhere that you cannot have mustard or ketchup and was not sure if this is correct.

I'm quite sure as time goes by that I will have many, many more questions, but right now, just trying to look at this as another food challenge and move forward. My husband is Italian, so the semolina pasta will be very difficult to give up. We eat out frequently, so another challenge.

Thanks for listening and please let me know about the mustard and ketchup.

Ketchup does not have gluten. Virtually every mustard is also gluten-free, but there might be a couple out there with wheat. Good luck. Sounds like some very tough restrictions.

Welcome!

I eat Heinz ketchup all the time with no problems and I believe that Heinz mustard was gluten-free the last time I checked. Tinkyada pasta is the best and it is gluten-free. I don't even notice a difference from regular wheat pasta.

Hi Marty,

Welcome :) I've been vegetarian for about 14 yrs (with egg & dairy). My diagnosis came 18 mos ago. This past winter I did the allergy test. Tested positive for just about everything I eat except tomatoes. Positive for soy, beans, eggs, dairy.... Tested negative to every meat on the planet. :o

The past few months, I've been trying to add meat in. As you can imagine, it's not easy, on many levels. I have not been very successful, and not persistent enough. I've eliminated soy (easy, since ds is allergic, though at first it was shocking), lentils and eggs, since I tested highest in those. I still eat kidney-shaped beans and dairy.

Since I'm allergic to so many things, and not at all to meat, the plan is to get to a very varied diet where I am less reliant on plant protein. Hopefully, this will ease up the allergies and i'll feel better.

Also, I've noticed that it is 99% impossible to eat out gluten-free and vegetarian and get anything other than a plain lettuce salad. Yuck! So for practical reasons, as well, I'd like to be eating meat again.

Italian food...mmmm...love Italian, we eat lots of it, but with fake noodles. Some are pretty good, but not like semolina. You can get close to De Cecco. You'll notice at first though that the food combination of rice noodles and your usual toppings is good but not quite....right...filling.....something. It's ok though. Soups of course are still great, as are many other things.

Hth,

Merika

Yep, I have to say it, but I think that with soy and gluten restrictions, you may want to reconsider going completely vegan. I respect the choice, and am only suggesting you look at it anew, with this new data you have to work with. Even if you only include milk and eggs (lacto-ovo vegetarian), you will find it much easier to get the balance of protein you need that cannot be provided by the gluten containing grains.

If you decide to stick with it, it's important that you take a look at all your options. You can convert to gluten-free items without gaining nutritional value, or you can convert to gluten-free items that give you a lot more nutritional value.

Semolina pasta, for instance, can be replaced with brown rice pasta, which has a bit more fiber. Wheat bulgar can be replaced with millet or buckwheat, both of which have more complete proteins. Oatmeal can be replaced with quinoa flakes, which has just as much protein. Dairy substitutes made from soy can in some cases be replaced - you can get rice milk, nut milk, or a milk substitute made from potatoes.

You'll do fine, I'm sure, it'll just take a bit of time to adjust.

Thank you for all of your responses. I do understand the difficulty, especially being vegan.

I have become aware of some of my options, just makes it a little more of a challenge when I travel and when we go out to dinner, etc.

I will miss "real" pasta and those good Italian desserts.

Thanks,

MartyG

    • You can always check to see how long the lab order lasts, if you'd like to continue eating gluten longer.
    • Might be something else in there, perhaps he ate something else with gluten, something was mixed in the chips, the chips were flavored or in a snack mix with pretzels. I get that way with gluten, but the last 2 times the gut issues render me unable to argue like that but I do go Mr. Hyde like =. Seems to be linked to my mental confusion that arises when I eat gluten the fog and looping of thoughts causes extreme anger and makes it where I can not connect things and think rationally leading to anger, outburst, random acts, and punching and breaking things out of frustration.
    • I hate to say it and be Mr. Negative ass here. But I had this exact same thought about having kids, I do not wish any kids I have to have my AI issues, and decided I would wait a few decades if need be for the new gene editing things they are working on so we can have them changed. Call me crazy.
    • Unsure but I would say wheat, when making that kind of soup you normally use wheat base flour as a thickening agent when preparing the soup. Often formed into a roux with the meat juices after cooking the meat and before adding the rest. Yeah I have issues with the pick up thing too, never accidentally ordered but I have to call them after every order to make sure they know it is me (manager knows me) and they do not put seasonings or sauces on stuff.   It is one of two restaurants in town I trust, but there are only two sides they do that are safe. I bring my own sauce, and main meal order the sides and a drink and go there to fee like a normal human sometimes. lol On a cooking note you can make your own using another flour, a deep nutty flavor like sorghum works great with this or garbanzo for the roux. You can also go and apply another technique where you take some roma tomato chop them up and stir them simmering with a bit crushing them with the ladle in the ban and it will thicken in to a roux like consistency. I find this last method pairs well with a cooking wine to deglaze and add brightness when finishing and can be used for flavorful soup bases or gravies.
    • Hello.  I was wondering what flavor the potato chips were.  Some flavors have dairy in them, like sour cream and onion, or ranch, or cheese.   Sometimes people with Celiac Disease develop an intolerance, or even an allergy, to dairy which can affect behavior, too. Some chips have flavor enhancers akin to MSG that might trigger a reaction.   Potato chips are processed with sulfites to prevent them from discoloration.  Some Celiacs develop a sensitivity to Sulfites in the diet.   And some Celiacs find it helpful to remove nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers) from their diets. Every one is different and reacts differently their own triggers.   I agree with Kareng.  You need to talk to your son.  I bet he feels embarrassed by his behavior, and is perhaps scared of not being able to control himself.  Your reassurance that he has your support can be invaluable.   You and your son might want to figure out together a plan of action if the situation arises again.  Help him learn to recognize when he's reacting and help him get through it.  Skipping rope to burn off the extra energy, puzzle books to focus the mind, soft lights and music, writing in a journal or coloring, or a clock ticking are things that may help.  But your love and support will be most important. Hope this helps.  Be encouraged.
