Celiac With Additional Food Allergies

9 posts in this topic

Diagionsed with celiac 7 months ago and just learned that I am also fructose, lactose intolerant. I was recently told I was also allergic to corn, soy, peanuts, shrimp and scallops with blood test results by a celiac GI doctor in NY.

Any advice on how to approach / manage these restrictions.

I am feeing better now that my diet is even more restricted.

I've been looking for information on multiple food allergies but find it very difficult to locate. Also looking for a brand of multi vitamins that would be soy, corn, gluten, lactose and fructose free. My search today was unsuccessful at a local health food store Mrs.Greens.

The Paleo/Primal diet is naturally restrictive of all of those foods (except maybe shrimp and scallops), so you might scout around for a book on Paleo/Primal recipes. An excellent book about this diet is "Primal Body/Primal Mind" by Nora Gedgaudas; however, there is also a website that is quite helpful with regard to recipes: www.marksdailyapple.com You can download the recipes, as well as the actual recipe books, for free--if you want hard copies, you have to pay for them.

I really sympathize with you. I also have multiple food allergies (but have had them almost my entire life): shellfish, peanuts, most tree nuts and sesame. If you have a true allergy to those foods, it's super important that you avoid them as each time you consume them, your allergic reaction could get progressively worse and could ultimately result in anaphylaxis.

I don't have a lot of advice as your allergies are more varied than mine but I hope you find some relief. Have you met with a dietitian or nutritionist to help come up with a plan of what to eat?

Thank you for the boost of support, I thought gluten free was hard, corn on top of it is not for the faint at heart. I've eliminated as much as possible, carry around my list of ingredients to avoid and try to cook very simply. Yes, will see my nutritionist in the next week or so as we'll as an allergist.

Haven't spoken to very many other people that are dealing with food allergies like these. Reading entries on this site made me realize that I'm not suffering alone. That others have managed to bring themselves back from the edge of the cliff to not only survive but to thrive:D

Hi,

Vitamin Shoppe brand or Solgar vitamins may work for you. Not sure about the corn though so be sure to ask them. Allergies are caused by proteins, so starches may be ok. Many times vitamins are held together by starches and corn is often used.

Your allergies should be retested after 6 months or so of gluten-free eating. Sometimes people's allergic reactions taper off when they go gluten-free. I used to have pretty bad hayfever but it is gone now.

My children ask if it will always be like this and I often reply that maybe the fructose and lactose intolerance will let up .

Searching everyday for Rx items without corn Mvits too but no luck yet, will keep trying:D

Lots of brands and info to sift through ...thanks for the note:)

Hi Iris,

There were some threads about bone broth soup a while back on the forum. It is supposed to be very good for minerals. Might be worth trying. Vitamins you can eat! Meats are a pretty good source of nutrition too.

It may take some time for your reactions to settle down. Mine tapered off slowly over a year or so. I used to buy anti-histamines once a week, but don't need them now. You can always tell the kids "it'll be over when it's over" in a low deep voice. That should satisfy them! :)

    • Very interesting. However, my positive on the DGP test is on the combined assay. When separated into IGA and IGG they are within normal range. Twice the IGA was a point or two above normal range, which can be easily disregarded per University of Chicago.  Much of the research done on NCGS is showing activation of cells which are different then in celiac. Placing it still in a gluten related illness spectrum, but an entirely different kind of mode of transport, if you will, then celiac disease. Odd, because I am pretty sure I read that 1st degree relatives of celiacs have a higher prevalence of NCGS suggesting it is, in part, that they are related. But I cannot recall where I read that.  I think my specialist doc is following the right track given that all of this began at the tail end of a 6 week challenge in 2015/16 and I have an increase in IELs.  which, as I've stated before, is a very non-specific finding however. Symptoms continued On a gluten free diet for me months after.  however I was only on it for that 3 months after they found some inflammation. So maybe I didn't give it long enough.  Or like I said, maybe it's something else. We shall see! 
    • Thank you for your replies, everyone! It was very helpful. I don't think I am comfortable with passing the whole gluten introduction diet again and getting that rash. Or, even getting the rash on my face flared up again. It actually might be a good thing I got 'glutened' at that bd party so I could finally make connection with all the symptoms. As I thought back about my 'allergy' rashes I start wondering if it could be related to gluten all those years but no one even suspected. For example, at some point I started getting itchy rash around my knees, spreading down to ankles (front of the legs) in summer. The dermatologist and GP said it is 'sun allergy'. The usual allergic treatments helped for the itch and the patchy scales slowly healed but it flared up on the same place during the summer multiple times. The strange thing is that it never flared up when I went hiking, or walking in the sun in the city (I have extremely low vit D levels and I need to supplement, so it was no-no to stay completely covered no matter the rash...I needed my natural vit D). The rash only appeared after beach visits. At some point I started washing and drying my skin with a towel every time I went out from the sea, the rash still appeared but I was able to control it so it showed up on day 4-5 when vacation was almost over. Then, last summer after I was completely gluten and dairy free for approximately 9-10 months, and I was annoyed of washing my skin each and every time and getting those weird looks on the beach, I stopped doing it. I was prepared with medicine and creams for that rash but guess what - my 'sun allergy' was mysteriously gone. Not a single blister, not a patch of itchy skin, nothing. Another 'allergy' case of mine is that I found from my own bad experience I got very bad rash from red dyes (in food or cosmetics). If it is food it shows on my face, if it is cosmetics (soaps, perfumes)...whenever I applied it. I am now reading that people with dh should stay away from red dyes. Mere coincidence? I don't know, I am more and more suspicious I could have this DH thing going on for years, if that is DH. I am just annoyed that all the dermatologists I went to during all those years never made connection. No one even suspected. It was the usual path - cortisone creams, pills, etc. At some point cortisone creams were no longer working so they started prescribing some mixtures made in the pharmacy specifically for me with sulfur. That worked like a charm but I couldn't walk around all covered in white cream looking like a mummy (long sleeves in summer here where I live and summer = 35-38 C, is not fun). Then, I tried homeopathy....it worked like a charm but of course those rashes kept appearing and disappearing, I was only able to control the itchy skin so I don't scratch, scratch, scratch...looong, long journey! Sorry about my rant...and, one more time thank you everyone who found the time to reply and share your opinion! Much appreciated!
    • Found this old thread when researching for my daughter who might be having an endoscopy in September. I'm curious to know what the results were?
    • Actually "flour" is not a common ingredient in soy sauce.   Accusing a manufacturer of "lying" about ingredients is a serious charge.  If you actually have proof that this company is not listing ingredients, you should report it to the FDA.
    • Ok guys, I messed up. I ate a bag of marshmallows the same day... low and behold, with wheat starch. I did not expect that. Sneaky sneaky marshmallows with with wheat starch. fml
