Has anyone tried this diet? If you did, did you have any decrease in symptoms while being on it? I cannot tolerate any grain or starchy vegetable. This diet is supposed to help Celiacs by allowing the gut to heal. I also cannot tolerate eggs, dairy, or soy. So, as you all can relate to, finding things to eat is not easy. I thought I was the only celiac that could not tolerate any grains or starch, until I noticed a few people on this message board also cannot. Anyway, if anyone has tried this diet, i would love to hear your opinions about it.

I am on this diet and absolutely love it because I finally feel 100% after going gluten-free. I didn't buy the yogurt maker right away, and I didn't see as much improvement as I had hoped, but since buying one and making my own yogurt, I have had so much improvement and I feel fantastic, but since you cannot tolerate dairy, I guess you will not be getting one :P . There is another member that said she couldn't tolerate dairy before this diet, and now she can. Obviously only she can tell you more about that. Good luck, and I highly recommend it.

Hi, I'm also on the Specific Carb Diet. I'm finally seeing a decrease in symptoms for the first time since I started feeling sick years ago. I would encourage you to try it for a few weeks and see how you feel. Your body will tell you whether the diet is right for you or not.

About the yogurt - I think taking a probiotic will reap the same benefits without the dairy.

If you decide to start, join our posts in the Diet and Weight section of this board. Good luck!!

Hi there, you can find info about the Specific Carbohydrate Diet on this site. It is a book called "Breaking the Vicious Cycle". After reading the postings and success with this diet, I am off to buy my own copy today.

Good luck!

Yes, I am on the SCD ~ and as noted above ~ I could not tolerate dairy before the diet, and have been able to eat it after being on the diet for about two months.

It has been around 4 mos. now, and I feel great. It really does allow your "gut" to heal. Is it easy? No, but it is worth it. I LOVE being able to eat cheese again. :)

IF you decide to go this route, please join our other thread. We don't post daily, but it is nice to keep up from time to time with others on the same "road" as you!!

Good luck! :)

    • This - I agree with all of this. I have also twigged that if oats are a problem then certified processed gluten free food is out. And I got really sick from drywall. It's such a relief to hear this as there was a time when I was feeling like an alien for thinking these things. Well I agree 99.9%. I had a skin problem, possibly DH, which got better when I gave up gluten, improved further when I gave up processed foods but it wasn't until I stopped eating dry beans that I stopped getting any flares. I am also sensitive to egg though (although that does something different to my skin) so I'm a bit a skin-reactive person. Could be worth cutting it out just to see if that helps?
    • Hi Celiac4762, The carbs I eat are sweet potato, parsnip and squash plus loads of fruit. With rice I'm ok if it's from a reputable source. If I ever get glutened by something then I steer clear of it for a month to give myself an extra break and then go back to it in smallish quantities. I have carbs once a day rather than every meal to save time. I can hear in your tone this tired, fed up tone that I recognise so well from when I get glutened. I know what it's like to dream of living in a far away gluten free bubble. I felt like that but after a couple of months (which were a hard adjustment) I got to a stage of knowing what I needed to do. Your medical background will help you methodically work out what you need to cut out and what is safe and you will get there. Stick with college. Don't let this crappy stage take that away.   The thing that saved me though over everything was finding this article: https://bmcgastroenterol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-230X-13-40
    • Thanks to both of you. Ok, so I was feeling not great and went grain free for 5 weeks. Then slowly started to introduce grains. All seemed ok, then I had an issue after 3 weeks, with blood in my stool. Celiac wasn't on my radar. In fact, rice and oats are what seem to bother me most. But the Dr added on the celiac test and it was indeterminate. So I was sent for endoscopy and colonoscopy. I consumed gluten for just over two weeks, then went back to my grain free, dairy free diet. I saw my Dr this am and she said my bowels were healthy, that the Dr had taken 'several' samples and that all is well on both ends.  (No celiac, but also not H Pylori, crohn's, etc). She is running all kinds of other bloodwork, because I am still feeling terrible, and obviously the assumption I had made was that it was celiac. I'm going to stay off gluten for now, in hopes that I'll start to feel better. My GI symptoms are worse this week than they have been in ages...so something is up, but apparently I'm healthy??! I am pretty sure my Dr. would not refer me to another GI. She's not the best, but it's very hard to find another Dr. here, especially if you already have a Dr. (Canada) I am going to ask her for a copy of the report though, as well as the rest of the bloodwork she's sending me for. 
    • This is exactly what I'm wondering also.
