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)

    • Thanks Barry. It's just up the road from me and it's a place I know very well. Some of my family were there last week for a gig, it's a frightening thought.  You are most definitely not alone and you've found a good site. There are a lot of accounts on here which helped me join the dots and work out what was happening with my own reaction to gluten. The move to a new job may not be coincidental btw, additional stress is linked to changes in celiac presentation. In women pregnancy can bring it about. It makes it easy to dismiss it as stress related. If you've found the answer now you can look forward to healing and hopefully some unexpected health dividends if it's affecting you in multiple ways. I stopped eating gluten and found near immediate relief from brain fog and a lightening of depression. What I didn't count on was the disappearance of chronic back pain that I'd had off an on for many years. There were a lot more examples like that as my time on the gluten-free diet progressed.  The rheumatoid pain in my hand went too. I put together an faq for the diagnostic side awhile back which may be of some additional help. or at least offer some good links to further reputable info:  
    • Microwave potatoes are filling. 6 minutes on 50% power then turn and another 6 minutes . For large sweet potatoes increase the to 8  each side. Canned gluten-free salmon, tuna etc with minute rice ready microwaveable. Libbys makes peas and green beans gluten-free naturals canned. Arrowhead Mills makes instant breakfast rice and shine as well as quinoa rice and shine, just add water and microwave. Instructions say stove top but 1/4 cup with 3/4 water microwave 4 minutes, with paper towel over top to catch water overflow. Eggs are great scrambled in microwave too. Stir up 2 eggs. Put in ceramic mug. Cover microwave 2 minutes.  Look for gluten free rice crackers too. Fresh fruit or gluten-free dried fruit. gluten-free nuts and seeds.  Survival tip, eggs need no refrigeration if you coat them with mineral oil when raw. Can last month's this way, Google it.
    • Saturday was the symptoms I have been feeling amplified big time:  Terrible nausea, head ache, dizziness, stomach gurgling, fatigue. And the constipation/strange BMs.  Wasn't prepared for that one.  I sort of took Sunday off and felt a bit better, now the dizziness is ramping up again.  I'm planning on taking a break once a week. Hopefully that's ok.  I do have an appointment with a GI for June 7th. There were no openings until mid July when I called and while I was speaking to the nurse someone must have cancelled and so I grabbed the early June appointment.  But this is all like deja vu. This is exactly how I would feel growing up and most of my life.   Headache, dizzy, nausea.  And the sores on the roof of my mouth!  Ugh. 
    • Also, can I buy the udi's and keep them in the fridge, or do they need to be frozen? 
    • Ennis_TX Thanks so much for your reply.  I am just not prepared to go through the medical procedures required to confirm I have it. I will just have to be satisfied in knowing that I feel better avoiding gluten. My wife recently began working with a gal that does have full blown, and did have the biopsy and everything, and now she is passing lots of advice to me through my wife. Your experiances do seem to be similar to mine. I have the mental stuff and the tingly fingers too! AS you know, there are just SO many side effects, it easy to confuse it with any number of other diseases/food intolerances. Thanks again and keep up the good work!
