Other Intolerances Linked To Gluten

8 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I am gluten intolerant and have been gluten free for awhile. I have noticed however that there are other foods that my stomach cannot tolerate. i.e. dairy, certain corn products, and I cannot handle large amouts of sugar.

Is there a list or "common knowledge" list of what other intolerances come alog with being gluten intolerant? I seem to remember that I have seen such a list, however I do not have it.

I would find this helpful because I have been cleaning up my diet. I still find that I am eating something that leaves me bloated, etc etc the next morning.

Guessing game isn't it?

Will

If you have damage to the tips of your villi you may not be making the enzyme that breaks down lactose? It's best if we go dairy free at first.

Your intolerances will be unique to you, but often times soy, dairy, and corn seem to pop up as main offenders.

Sometimes you have to go low spice or limit nightshades (tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, eggplant)for a while until you are healed.

Some of us react to high salicylate foods, some to greasy foods, etc.

My best recommendation is to go off dairy for a bit and keep a food log. Write down everything that you eat..and note any symptoms you have. Many food reactions are delayed and your log will help you put the pieces of the puzzle together.

If you note having a lot of bloating or indigestion you may do well to take a digestive enzyme with food? Your problem with sugars and starches sort of points to your needing the additional enzymes.

Probiotics are another thing that most of us need to balance out our gut "flora". If you have any bacterial overgrowth it will make you bloat. Probiotics crowd out that bad bacteria.

Don't take digestive enzymes and probiotics together. The enzymes will break down the good bacteria.

I hope you can sort out what's giving you trouble..and heal fast so you can add things back in. It is a challenge isn't it?

I agree with the previous comment - everything seemed to be covered in the reply. I have been off dairy for the same reason for a year and a half and still can't eat it - although I was only diagnosed with Coeliacs last November following a biopsy. I really believe that everyone is different and shouldn't necessarily compare yourself with others as we all react differently. I can't eat a lot of sugar, fatty foods or spicy food (even mild curry which I love, and upset that I cannot eat at the moment). I don't react well to gluten/wheat free bread either. I believe I have had Coeliacs for many years and that is why I still cannot eat dairy etc., and feel sure that it's only a matter of time before my villi heals fully and will be able to introduce some food types (except gluten, obviously) again gradually. Hopefully this will also be the case for you too.

I have never heard that these can't be taken together. Can you post a source? Or am I the last to find out :lol:

Thanks.

I think you will find that everyone is an individual with their own sensitivities. In the reading that I have done, I have come to the conclusion that there is NO food out there that doesn't bother someone.

My own list of no-no's includes gluten, oats, rice, sugar (beet, cane, honey, dates, raisins, aguve, xylitol). I can eat limited amounts of other grains and starches. Tomatoes and onions are questionable. But I have no problem at all with dairy, soy or potatoes.

As I said, everyone is different and you just have to figure it out for yourself. Others can only give you clues as to what else to try.

Sorry I'm so late in getting back to you...

I was told to take the probiotics seperately from the digestive enzymes because the enzymes break down the protein in the probiotic. I found a site that explains it..if you scroll down a bit.

It depends on the person, really... For example, yesterday I was told by my father I had a leaky gut since I was a child. Right now, I can't have cashews, coffee, soy protein (I just lost my favorite chocolate :/), dairy, peanuts (yeah, the peanut butter wasn't cross contaminated) and last but not least, gluten.

Just random foods I used to eat.

So other people's experiences might help you in pinpointing what's wrong with your diet, but in the end, you have to go by your gut B)

    • Hey guys!  I have been suffering from NCGS for almost a year, and have recently been diagnosed with IBS.  Although I was finally getting used to the gluten free routine, this has been really hard to get used to.  I'm currently having a major flare, so I'm off pretty much all fodmaps (although mainly beans, dairy, nuts, and gluten). Additionally, my stomach can't handle more than a 1/2 cup portion per meal, and even then, I'll occasionally have pain after eating.  Does anybody have simple, fast meals that they could share? As if this isn't restrictive enough, I'm also allergic to eggs, so I'm pretty much living off smoothies, rice, and allergy free chicken sandwiches.  I know this is pretty restrictive, but I thought that if anybody could help, it would be you guys.  Thanks!  Claire 
    • Great advice everyone! So the envirokids gorillla munch by natures path is safe?. As for cinnamon Chex is that ok too? 
    • Alright, so I'm 3 months into being gluten free, And in terms of how I feel, the "best fit" line on the graph would be a very slow incline, which is good, but day to day, I would mark as all over the place. I don't understand. I pretty much do the same things every day, and eat the same things every day at around the same times, even in the same order. I cook all my own food and am super careful about CC. I even have my own pans, cutting boards, even my own sponge for washing my own aforementioned kitchen supplies. What I eat is very limited. I don't even do dairy, grains, or added sugar. (for now) Yesterday I actually felt okay. The brain fog was fairly thin, I felt more based in reality, rather than like I was in the matrix, on drugs, or in a dream. Today I'm back in the matrix again. I can't think, I have anxiety, I'm overly emotional, short fused, angry, and scared of my own shadow. This up and down for no apparent reason stuff seems to be the norm for me. Is this unheard of or somewhat common? It seems like how I feel is completely out of my control, and the disease just does whatever it wants. I know 3 months isn't that long in the usual recovery time frame, but I want to get off this ride. I just need to know if it's normal to be so up and down day to day during the recovery, or if I should give in to my assumed unfounded panic attacks and be worried. As a side note, I'd much rather have the typical gastro issues usually associated with celiac. Blowing chunks and crapping my pants constantly would be way easier for me to deal with than all the neurological problems mine manifested as. Ugh.
    • Ha, Ha!!!!!!  If I wouldn't get in trouble for practicing without a license, I would!     I get it because that is what they did to me for years.  I never had acid reflux but had enough other symptoms that all screamed Celiac but no.........they told me that my severe stomach pain might be acid reflux so take this script and go away. They never even tried to figure it out past the 10 minutes allowed for the appointment. I'll never forget one doctor that I pushed back on and told her I was not there for meds but to find out what was actually wrong and she got so mad she left the room and never came back. All they kept doing was trying to shove pills down my throat.   I am guessing that the procedure is the one where they tighten the sphincter muscle at the entrance to your stomach? I know so many people who had that done because it's become so common to push that if the meds aren't working well. Follow the money........ If acid reflux becomes that bad, then you have to start looking at food, period.
    • Here's a link that discusses Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (histamine intolerance) and recommended tests.  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/mast-cell-activation-syndrome/ This article explains how POTS is related to MCAS. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3545645/#!po=35.0000 "In another clinical situation, Shibao et al. and colleagues studied a small cohort of patients who had evidence of mast cell activation as evidenced by elevated urine levels of N-methylhistamine after flushing episodes and who had orthostatic intolerance (69). Detailed studies revealed a profound hyperadrenergic response to standing characterized by tachycardia and hypertension consistent with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, or POTS. This phenomenon is felt to be due the release of vasoactive mediators such as histamine that act locally on sympathetic nerves; autonomic function was assessed to be normal in these patients. The authors have used methyldopa, an alpha-adrenergic agonist, with some success in these patients along with standard medications to block mast cell mediators. They caution against the use of beta-blockers, which may exacerbate mast cell activation."   Vitamin and mineral deficiencies often occur with Celiac Disease.  Celiac Disease causes malabsorption which results in malnutrition.  It's important to correct nutritional deficiencies after a Celiac Crisis like you endured with your gluten challenge.   Vitamin D is so important!  Vitamin D tells the mast cells to turn off histamine production.   https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4154631/ Vitamins C and E and B6 help, too. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21244748 The eight B vitamins are water soluble and need to be replenished every day.  Not enough B vitamins can make one grouchy (or seemingly an alien).  Just watch "Naked and Afraid" on Discovery channel.  The contestants who don't get protein (chock full of B vitamins) get grouchy, depressed, and irritable.  Some contestants have to be removed because their personality changes to the point they become dangerous.  This is a drastic example of vitamin deficiencies that develop over a short period of time, three weeks.  Now imagine having a subclinical deficiency over a long period and a slower health disintegration.   I lost my faith in doctors when my deficiency diseases were not recognized and addressed.  So, I used my food journal and the low histamine diet guidelines to get my inflammation down and my vitamins and minerals up.  Hope this helps.
