I was diagnosed with celiac 5 years ago. After the first year of stumbling with the gluten free diet, I have become more and more cautious about exposure. I no longer eat out or have processed foods of any sort. I don't go to restaurants at all or large sporting events with food everywhere. I have tried a low FODMAP diet, Fasano diet, and avoided soy, dairy, corn, etc., at various times. Despite all of this, I have continued to have declining health and gastrointestinal problems. Most of my symptoms resemble gluten exposure - tingling fingers and toes, muscle and joint pain and weakness, severe fatigue, abdominal pain and bloating, alternating diarrhea and constipation, headaches, vertigo, asthma, severe anxiety attacks, ...you get the picture. Recently, I have had a lot of hair loss and skin lesions - blisters on soles of feet and hands, and a DH-type rash on back and chest. While this has gone on, my glucose has continued to slowly climb, finally crossing the threshold from pre-diabetic to diabetic. I am only about 10 pounds overweight. Because of this and the fact that I tried everything else, I started a very low carb diet. No grains, carbs only in fruit and small servings of potatoes. Within about 10 days, I noticed a significant lessening of symptoms. I started doing research into symptoms of low level arsenic poisoning. I have them all! I was eating around 2 cups of brown rice or rice products per day. I was also eating almost exclusively chicken - usually not organic. I am close to concluding that my issues are not low levels of gluten exposure, but instead are due to chronic arsenic ingestion. I'm wondering if any of you have had similar issues, and if so, have you tried avoiding or reducing rice intake? Has this improved your health?
I was diagnosed with Celiac's when I was 19. When I was 23, I was still having problems with my stomach. I got more test done and found I also have intolerance to rice, (white) potatoes, pork, egg whites, and lots other things but those are the big ones. Especially since rice flour is used for the majority of Gluten Free pasta, pizza crust, bread etc. However, I have been eating meal replacement shakes and one I just purchased has "Whole Grain Brown Rice Protein, pea protein isolate". I have done some research and rice protein is an extract from rice. Isolating the grain from the protein. Before I put my body though a test, I was wondering if any one know if this is safe to eat?!?! I am pretty sensitive to white rice and brown rice. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer!
