  1. Interesting... I did read once that potato chips were the worst junk food that you can eat because they are fried at such a high temp.
  2. I bought a blood sugar meter and ate some gluten free pancakes, and my blood sugar goes up to 185 and then drops to 50, but the doctors say I'm fine.
  3. That's very possible...the corn. Corn chips and popcorn are a definite no-no for me but then I always thought it was the rise in blood sugar, although I'm not diabetic, I do have blood sugar issues. I do have dairy allergies and I can't eat sugar. I have the celiac gene but they say no celiac, although I do have SIBO. It sucks.
  4. Wouldn't they have to add that as an ingredient if sulfites were used? I also considered that potato chips are high glycemic and raises my blood sugar. Anyway, I just ate potato chips and here I am with a sinus infection, so it's still an ongoing issue.
  5. I eat the plain potato chips cause I'm allergic to milk and all but the plain have whey in them. And according to the allergist I'm not allergic to any oils. Someone mentioned that potato chips might be dipped in sulfites but I couldn't find any mention of that on google. What a mystery this is! lol
  6. Does anyone have any idea why I would get sinus infections when I eat potato chips. I can eat fried potatoes at home just fine. It says there's nothing in the bag but oil and potatoes. I have been really sick with sinus pain, runny nose and when I stopped the potato chips I got better. I ate the chips cause they seemed like the safest. I have been allergy tested and I'm not allergic to potatoes. Thanks!
  7. She says they aren't itchy though but very painful. When she lived at home, her feet would be so cold , we were always trying to find ways to warm them up. I think I have Erythromelalgia which is a step up from Raynauds but I've never had sores on my toes.
  8. My daughter has Hashimoto's and she's away at college and emailed me, saying that her toe is killing her. She sent me a photo of it and it doesn't look that bad but cell phone images are sometimes not accurate. Previously her little toe was red and swollen and still is I think but now she is getting little sores on the top of her toes that are very painful. I've had my share of odd autoimmune things going on but never that. I'm coming here just in case someone else might've had something similar. I know it's a long shot because I did a google search and all I found was chillblains and because of the Hashimoto's her feet are chilly but she swears her feet have not been cold even though we are in the single digits. Thanks so much!
  9. I think because I'm allergic to dairy I cannot take enzymes that have lactase in them because I can take Pancreatin without any problems which digests proteins, starches and fats, so I am happy that FINALLY my problem is solved! So sharing this in case it helps someone else. :-)
  10. So I did try the digestive enzymes with food. One time I didn't vomit although my stomach wanted to, the next I vomited. So no more enzymes for me. Both times I ate a big meal and still I vomited. It feels like it's burning in my stomach so not sure why I cannot take them. It's very disappointing.
  11. I have a lot of muscle weakness...my muscles are disintegrating basically. I read that SIBO can cause problems with digestion of fatty acids and amino acids and I see bits of stuff not digested in the BM so figured it would be a good idea. When reading about how to heal the gut, they say that adding in a digestive enzyme is a good idea too.
  12. lol Gemini that's not a dumb question. I used to take some digestive enzymes and they said that if you take them between meals it digests inflammation so I didn't take them right away after I ate...so that might be it. The company, I just talked to them, said to open up the pill and take a smaller amount. However, right now I'm afraid to take them, after spending a couple hours vomiting last night. But it did feel like my stomach was burning....so you might have the clue to my mystery...hehe When I get up the nerve to try these again, I will do so but I wonder how I would be able to take a smaller portion..unless I sprinkle it on my food.
  13. I know this is an old post but I bought Digest Gold and it makes me vomit everytime I take them. I also did the same thing with a Garden of Life Product...So I am stumped trying to figure out why. It takes several hours before it happens but this is the second time I tried to take them.
  14. The biopsy said it definitely was not shingles.
