I am having a liver issue here..bilirubin and last night urobilinogen after a possible gluten or salicylic acid episode starting on the 29th of december. I have no appetite but i'm forcing myself to eat. I have been on a very limited diet..i dunno for sure if my problem is salicylic acid with what happened and i feel i need to go on the rotation diet to heal myself properly as well as find a probiotic. What the heck do i do? I'm finding it hard to find foods to even fill up my day unless i eat a lot of the same thing...let alone a rotation diet O_O thoughts?

Are you sure about your intolerances? I am low level intolerant by Elisa test to 49/60 things I am eating. I still can eat each of them and am doing really well on a rotational diet. Make sure nothing you are getting is cross contaminated with gluten. It is so confusing at first to know what exactly is going on. From my test I also learned 11 foods that I was eating that I was making no antibodies for. These I do break rotation somewhat with. You can't have a rounded diet without protein, fat, and veges. I can maybe show you my rotation diet, but you can't have one like it with only 6 items.

Protein foods : Fish, beef, chicken, pork, lamb, bison, poached eggs, yougurt, or cheese

Veges: (brocolli, cauliflower, , collard greens, kale, and brussel sprouts), ,(legumes, string beans, lentils, kidney beans, garbanzo beans, carob, peas, white beans) (sweet potato, carrots, squash, zucchini, celery, fennel bulb ) (beets, swiss chard, spinach)

My "flours" Buckwheat ground by me (I haven't found storebought not cc) walnut, hazlenut, pecan, macedemia, Nut flour, (ground in blender and put through a sifter, ) Almond flour, coconut flour.

fruits apple, banana, mango, papaya, kiwi, cranberry, blackberry, pears, blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, oranges, peaches, grapefruit, grapes, apricot, plums, figs, dates, cherry (sweet and tart), watermelon, cantelope, avacado, tomato, rhubarb, pineapple there may be others to try at the store. Try a new one, you are not likely to have antibodies to it. Check its family though.

Oils (ghee) (coconut oil) (Olive oil)

For each meal I have 1 protein, l or more veggies, 1 flour and one oil. Sometimes I have a small amount of fruit. If I make a little pancake I spread a couple of bites of fruit on it for flavor. YUM

You may not tolerate some of them, but if you only eat it every forth day, perhaps you can get by with it like I do. Your body sure needs to rest. When I started my diet, I felt better in four days. I have not relapsed yet, even when I got diarrhea from something I ate. I mean my foggy fatigue stayed away, and I could live with the other for a short time.

I hope this will help you, or someone. I do hope that if you really feel you are so limited in your diet that you will find help, or try one of the really limited diets others are on like paleo. I don't know what else. Either that or I hope you find a health practioner that can help you identify more foods you can eat, or how to get out of your food crises. I felt I needed that until recently. AFter I did the rotational diet, supplements, and pancreatic enymes I feel better. I am coming down with a cold now, and I hope I will lick it much faster than my cold that was before the changes I recently made.

Wendybird GET Better,

Diana

Problem is salicylic acid limits the diet...GREATLY. More so than gluten. Can't eat half of those lists. Not having dairy. Coconut and Olive oil are high, A lot of the veggies are high all fruits except perhaps pears are ok...this is really becoming a burden. I'm pretty sure it's more than likely salicylic acid because my stomach upset started from sniffing peppermint and ginger young living essential oils on my husbands aunt's suggestion and turns out they are high in sals. I've done a urine test and my bilirubin went way up again...so frustrated :(

I answered this in reply to your PM, but I will post here as well.

You can try the Failsafe Diet.

http://failsafediet.wordpress.com/

of course, it goes without saying, but you have to eliminate the gluten grains, too on that list!

Works very well for taking out any potential foods or additives that may be bothering you.

I know you are very anxious to get well, as I once was too

but you really, really have to try and calm down about what

you think are "potential" issues making you sick. You simply cannot get glutened or sick from food aromas if someone is cooking

in your house (as you asked on another thread)

but you could well have felt sick after sniffing oils IF you have a chemical sensitivity.

An environmental allergist can diagnose this problem.

Just try it for a month. Take walks. Get some fresh air.

Hope this helps.

    • Thanks desirun. I have takenhim off gluten and he has improved out of sight. Only times he hasbeen sick since was when he ate something with gluten. His 14 yr old brother has just been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and now coeliac screen has come back positive for him as well. Ttg was 745. normal is anything under 20.  Waiting on gene test for him before scheduling biopsy. Makes it more likely that my younger son does have coeliac now I think. Will also be getting my daughter tested asap. 
    • I've done a lot of "hotel hobo-ing" pre-gluten-free and post-gluten-free. Previously, I did a lot of traveling for university sports and was concerned with saving money/having reliable food that would be nutritious while competing. Now I am more concerned with not getting poisoned. Bring [dry] rice or corn grits and cook them like oatmeal using either a kettle at the hotel or in the microwave. This does not take up much room in a bag for flying. I personally make my own rice grits using my coffee grinder (do not use brown rice though - it'll take a long time to cook!), but you can probably buy them pre-made.  You might also be able to snag single serving honey, peanut butter, jam, sugar, salt from the hotel itself if you're super thrifty . But I usually just buy a jar of peanut butter, tub of yogurt and some fresh fruit or vegetables from a grocery store. Maybe some jerky if I'm feeling fancy.   If the hotel room doesn't come with a kettle or microwave, you can ask for one. I have never had a problem asking for either a kettle or a microwave when I told the staff I had "severe food allergies" or a "medical reason." . You could also use the coffeemaker to boil water/prepare stuff, but I would not if you are sensitive. Lots of people like old, gluten-eating me use the coffeemaker to cook instant noodles and oatmeal (yes, it does actually work). I would hazard that unlike the mugs/cups they give you in the room, the coffeemaker only gets a superficial rinse between customers. I personally bring a single use drip cone and filters for my coffee or just get the hotel coffee.
    • If it were my child, I'd keep him off of gluten and dairy as recommended by the dietician, especially since he's not well and this is possibly celiac.  It won't hurt him to be off of gluten and he may even improve, but if this is celiac disease or gluten intolerance, he will not improve on the gluten.  Right now your goal is for him to be well as soon as possible. I personally would wait until your son is healthy and recovered to even consider reintroducing gluten for a challenge. There is nothing worse then not having clear answers. I would encourage you to be persistent. Eight weeks is not typical for a "bug." Follow your gut, if you are getting the cold shoulder see another doctor/doctors.  Get and keep copies of all test results as part of your son's history to help new consults avoid retesting and to help determine the next steps in his care. Have you seen an allergist...?
