Got Problems With Sugar Too!

11 posts in this topic

Hi all

Anyone get probs with sugar and symptoms.

It's not really coming as any suprise to me but I can't have sugar either.

I don't take sugar in drinks, etc - my only weakness is choc :ph34r: which I mainly avoid because of the soy. Have just been reading the soy posts and have to add more symptoms which I suspect are from the sugar.

Rapid heartbeat (got to be from sugar)! followed by chest pain on exercise (angina type but not severe) and sort of laboured breathing - kind of heavy. Add to this a sense of stressiness (new word).

The laboured breathing is while sitting still but worse with exercise.

I do not get these symptoms normally - I have had a bag of Minstrels about an hour ago - supposed to be gluten free but I have a deep suspicion of all 'gluten free' products that are out there generally (as opposed to specifically produced). Can't eat them either, so G knows why I ate the above :ph34r: .

I'm rambling - possibly another symptom ???

I have hypo glycemia I have known for years, and am used to avoiding sugar. If I have sugar my bladder is irritated the next day. It probably causes fatigue also, but I have never thought about it or tried it alone.

I have the bladder issue with sugar too. About 20-30 min after eating sugar, my face (on the sides of my nose) gets bright red and starts to sting a little. Then my scalp starts to flake and itch like crazy. Usually followed by headache the next day (base of skull) and fatigue.

I can't eat processed sugar either. I don't have problem with sugar beets or a certain brand of honey, so I can still get a bit of a sweet fix. I was wondering if it is something about the processing or the sugar itself so I grew hardy sugar cane. I got so little sugar out of it that I still don't know, but it is a nice ornamental grass for my garden.

In what way is your bladder irritated - if that isn't a stupid question?

This is the end of the line with me for sugar - I have been following a paleo/scd type diet for about a week quite strictly so eating that choc made the symptoms very clear for me. It's no good, I just can't eat it - no real surprise actually. I think I'm a particularly slow learner :unsure: . Luckily, I don't generally have sugar things.

In my case, both sugar and soy do the same. As a chocoholic, this was a trauma. But you may want to try either hot chocolate (made with real cocoa and whatever dairy/non-dairy milk you choose), or a high percentage chocolate, like those by Domori or the Lindt 99% (I like that stuff because it does not have the acidity that sometimes is tied to excess sugar). Ever since getting back on extra-dark chocolate, tasting sugary chocolate has suddenly become unsatisfying and disappointing.

I can do agave or honey -- others avoid agave.

I make a yummy chocolate mousse regularly - it is my go to sweet fix

Cocoa, Coconut Oil, Almond Milk, Almond Butter, Agave and a touch of vanilla in the blender.

I've been playing with the measurements for about a month - the almond milk is a recent addition and really made it creamy.

For those that are really intolerant of processed items like me -- I make the almond milk with just water and without the straining step for use in mousse and some other recipes -- saves a lot of work.

I have been grain free for a couple weeks now, and before that was 95% sugar free.

I do occasionally use honey with no repercussions. My sugar issues are very direct-

I eat sugar, and the lymph glands in my neck swell up the next day like they do with

the first day of a cold, and I get very fatigued. Sugar definitely affects the immune

system. I will be grain free for a while, trying to control stress induced inflammation

right now, but will give quinoa and rice a shot in a couple of months. When I just can't

take it anymore with the no sweets, I'll either fry up some diced apples in butter and

add a bunch of cinnamon and nutmeg, or sometimes I'll make hot cocoa with milk,

honey, cocoa, maple syrup, and cinnamon and nutmeg. Probably only add a spoonful

each of honey and maple syrup. And maybe some half n half... :ph34r:

If you do try chocolate again, try the enjoy life brand. The mega chunks are great an much cheaper than the candy bars. It"s the only chocolate i can eat without getting sick. It"s gluten,soy,dairy,nut free. I admitt i eat it by the bag fulls :D

You"ll likely have to get it at your local health food store or coop

...I hate to be a worry-wort, but a lot of what you described can also be SERIOUS heart issues! I just had a family member die (young) from a heart attack and a year ago a friend's brother died of a heart attack...in memory of two who lost their lives to bad hearts, I wish, wish, wish you would rule out any possible heart issues :)

Thinking of you (and hoping it's just that annoying sugar!)!

    • LOL, re: trousers vs. pants.   Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front.   I also read that Vit D helps digestion;  can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin.   My Dr. just told me to resume 2000 IU per day, and I do think it's made a slight difference. Have also read that bone broth is helpful, its gelatinous nature supposedly coats the stomach.   I know bone broth has not been formally studied much, but again, probably can't hurt and might help.
    • I'd try the gluten free diet for a few months to see if that helps at all. Can't hurt. If it doesn't help I'd try a low FODMAP meat and veggies diet.
    • A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be taking percations goods, I still use freezer paper for a clean safe work surface even in my gluten free home lol. Anyway top things to look for and consider are magnesium and B vitamin deficiencies . I take my in a drink to avoid pills and the sublingual forms are more easily absorbed by the body. I normally suggest 2 brand or forms of magnesium and you need to find the one that works for you there. They are Natural Vitality Calm, a magnesium citrate in a powder, you add it to a warm drink let it fizz and drink it. Magnesium citrate can be a bit harsh on some peoples guts, I suggest you start off with 1/4 tsp and work your way up to the full dose over a week, if you get D then your taking too much and need to back down or the citrate version might be too rough for you. In which case I suggest Doctors Best, bit more off tasting and mixes best with a juice but with the powdered form of it you do not have to worry about digestion issues, I just found the citrate to seem to help with my nerve issues more. B Vitamins, I take Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological Support, I take 1 tbsp of each 2-3 times a day before meals. Really helps with everything and being in liquid forms I just add to tea and drink it. There are many other vitamins to look into and we each have ones we have issues with more then others, getting tested might help, NOTE magnesium and B vitamins sometimes show normal but you will still find you need supplementation...bit of a odd thing I found. Yeah the neurological effects are  huge thing with me as my issues with this disease cause my immune system to attack my nervous system and brain....accumulated brain and nerve damage over the years. Had a whole mental trauma issues with them, my gastro issues back then were mostly just constipation. NOW days I get the Vomiting, D, gas, bloat, and then constipation for a week along with neurological issues which NOW if I get exposed to eating straight gluten (happened twice in 3 years to this extent) I loose motor control and collapse unable to move, normally while vomiting violently to the point of blood coming up (this was what happened last June 2016 after eating out).  
    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
