Does brown rice bother anybody else? I had some tilapia, brown rice, and green beans last night and my chest and belly were on fire.

I can't eat brown rice anymore either. I used to when I first went gluten free but now it goes right through me. I have no idea why. I remember reading a few weeks back about brown rice having arsenic or some other poison in it, but I can't remember. I just took note that that might be the problem, but I doubt it in my case. There are a TON of things that never used to bother me but do now. And most of it doesn't make any sense to me.

Are you sure it was the rice ?

We always rinse off fish, chicken, and meat before cooking it. The local grocery sells their tilapia in the unfrozen display case both plain and breaded ready-to-cook, right next to each other, <_<:ph34r: so I don't get that stuff anymore and instead use the frozen packaged kind.

It could have been the fish. My grandmother had made some for me previously and I was fine. Second time it has happened when I cooked it.

Haven't eaten it since I've went gluten-free. Though I did buy some which was certified completely gluten-free, so when I cook it I guess I'll find out :lol:

I'm not a big rice person anyhow.

My worst food intolerance is to brown rice. It gives me severe stomach pain two days after eating it, and pain lasts for almost a week. Also causes major C. I can eat white rice every once in awhile, but I don't think it gets digested very well.

I suggest trying it one more time to see. This is a tough intolerance to have since most gluten-free processed food contains it (bread, pizza crust, pasta, crackers, cereal, etc)

Now that this is posted.... I bet that brown rice has been a problem for me, by making me feel lousy... I get cramped and have pains, sometimes severe in my stomach for a few days... I didn't associate it from brown rice.. I just read online about ground growing foods and groundwater containing arsenic and selenium... It says brown rice consumed twice a month may be ok.

    • I have 2 copies of DQ9. One from each parent.
    • Obviously from the outside it's difficult to comment, but if I were you I'd leave allergies for now and pursue definitive celiac testing via your doctor and preferably a gastroenterologist. They're the first port of call for digestion issues. If you do wind up being celiac it's possible that other allergies or intolerances would resolve or improve in any case once you've been on the diet for awhile. That's been my experience.   Ps note that wheat allergy is completely different and unrelated to celiac or non celiac gluten sensitivity. 
    • Thank you ps, it may be better if the thread title was changed as we now have two 'overwhelmed' topics. If it were 'Bile ducts and celiac?' then it may attract more users with direct experience?
    • Hello and welcome Maybe? From reading others accounts there's a big variation in how quickly gluten antibodies respond to the gluten diet. I did similar to you and my doctor said that 1 week back on should be enough to show up in a test, but he didn't know what he was talking about sadly... The 2 week figure refers to the endoscopy, for blood testing 8-12 weeks on gluten is more normal.  Basically if it comes back positive fine you have your answer. If its negative it may be a false negative due to your going gluten free beforehand. If you want to pursue a diagnosis then yes. Don't go off gluten again until you confirm that all testing is complete.  Keep a journal noting any symptoms, that may be useful to you later. More info here: There's some good info in the site faq: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I know how you feel! Partway through my gluten challenge I knew that too results notwithstanding. Fwiw I think you've found your answer. Good luck!
    • Learn more about testing for celiac disease here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You do have to be on a gluten diet for ANY of the celiac tests (blood and biopsy) to work.  While the endoscopy (with biopsies) can reveal villi damage, many other things besides celiac disease can cause villi damage too: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So, both the blood test and endoscopy are usually ordered.  There are some exceptions, but those are not common.
