Two Months In And Food Intolerances Are Growing! Why?
0

5 posts in this topic

So, I am two and half months in after being "labelled" NCGI. I was given Aciphex to control the extreme acidity and erosion of my esophagus and told that my other symptoms would start to improve after a couple months. Unfortunately, that has not happened. Instead, itseems my tolerance for foods has lessened. A month after my negative biopsy, I realized, I had become intolerant to dairy - something I had expected to a point given the state of my gut. However, I figured that would be the end of it, hopefully! Because of my dairy intolerance I thought I would try the So Delicious Coconut ice cream - definitely delicious and no ill effects. This past weekend I saw they had a no sugar added variety and because of my diabetes, I figured that might be better than the other. I tried it two nights ago and was okay that night but later on, not so much. As an experiment to confirm it was that food that had given me the problem, I ate it again...same issues. I'm trying to figure out whether it was some added ingredient in the NSA variety or if it is the So Delicious brand in general. I have heard people have had reactions to the carageenan in that, but figured I was okay because I haven't reacted to the yogurt that had it in it or the first So Delicious brand I tried. However, maybe like everything else, I am growing intolerant to that too.

I guess my question is, is it normal to have growing food intolerances two months into the gluten-free diet? If so, why? All I know, is that it becomes very frustrating to have to keep adding foods to my do-not-eat list. :(

It is possible that you are better able to distinguish food problems now. That seemed to be the case for me. You get one big culprit out of the way and your body isn't overwhelmed with that anymore. Then it is more able to alert you that something is wrong with what you are still eating. I also had cross contamination problems that kept me feeling low and withdrawl. Give yourself time to cope with these. Keep refining your scrutinizing and making it better and better.

Keep at it! You are on the right road. For every food I haven't been able to eat anymore, I find two or three things to substitute with. I have used almond milk, coconut milk, and hazlenut milk for example.

It seems odd to me to have too much acidicity in your stomach. I take a little hydrochloric acid to help with digestion.

Get well***

Thanks for the help. :) Hazelnut milk sounds really good - I've never seen that in any of the stores near me though :(

Hi there

I'm 5 months gluten free (just), I have had SO many allergies and intolerances since I began gluten free. Dairy was the first, soy next, then eggs, citrus fruit (caused terrible asthma and bad ezcema), quinoa (asthma again), and now corn (which is really upsetting me as corn is everywhere)... Recently had a few reactions to corn, just like eating gluten :( the reaction last night from blowing up a balloon or baking my son's birthday cake (don't know which it was?).... So yes, it's very possible to have growing problems with food intolerances and allergies.

I've had some great advice on here though, and some great people on here keep telling me to hang on in there. And that's precisely what I aim to do. It's hard. I'm currently depressed about corn (very recent intolerance)... I keep wondering how much food I will be able to eat... I'm vegetarian too so it's very difficult.

But... On a day to day level, I feel ok! And isn't that wonderful! My energy has picked up since taking iron etc feel much better generally. So something must be right?? I also gave up smoking and sugar when I went gluten-free. My poor poor body! I just keep telling myself that my body has gone a bit haywire and is just rewiring itself (and sometimes getting it wrong for a bit)!

It's hard to be positive, don't I just know it. But it's the only way. Some of the guys on here are an inspiration with their positivity... So I figure they are probably right...

Good luck, have a good rant on here! I have been on here all day complaining!! Makes me feel tons better!

Grrr. Because out digestive symptoms are drama queens. Just when you think you get it, it all changes on you.

I hear it gets easier, so hang on. When I feel sad, I read the Crohn's boards and thank my lucky stars.

    • Any good Doctor/nurse will notice the symptoms to gluten allergies.  Weak knees, weak ankles.   Check out if  you need to take more vitamin D. And any other vitamins/supplements.
    • now thats  deal for there.  My wife just  bought the big two jar set yesterday forgetting they  we bought one set together last week. Going to be having a lot of them over the next few months!  
    • Hi all!  Been coming to this forum since my diagnosis in October of 2016. Since my diagnosis it's been an up and down fight but I have more good days then bad ones now that I've been 5 months gluten free. Had a few accidents along the way but we keep going!  Recently I noticed a black vertical line that comes from the middle of my nail shooting straight up to the top. It appears to be in the thumb nail. All my other nails on my toes and hands are clear.  I did some research on this and it says it's called a splinter hemorrhage. These can be associated with many different issues ranging from endocarditis to a trauma to malnutrition. Has anyone else experienced these?  I would attach a picture of my right thumb nail but for some reason it says the picture is to large to upload. 
    • Universal testing should start in all schools as early as possible.  I was diagnosed  in 7th grade from a basic sports examination by a Dr.   My Father basically turned a blind eye and said nothing wrong with my son.  A basic examination by a Doctor or good Nurse can see the signs of Gluten allergies. Just need the direction to do so. 
    • Thank you all so much.  It's so great to know there are people out there that have shared my experience. I was feeling quite alone in this. I could never believe that I just had anxiety, and that was that. There has to be a reason for my body to act this way. I feel validated,and hopeful and that's a huge thing for me. I'm going to see my doctor next week, and see what she thinks. I'm hopeful that with all my symptoms (anxiety, skin rashes for months, sensitivity to light|sound, headaches, vertigo, temper) she won't shrug me off. My mom has Crohn's disease so maybe a connection. Thanks again for your advice and your ear, it truly helps.
