Reaction to food, or a result of diet?

Answered on August 19, 2014

If I have something off strict Paleo, I notice it, there's no question about it. Then, there is also the feeling that's brought by changing the pro/fat/carb ratio. But most of the time, it's just that tiny bit of something that derives from grains that makes my symptoms turn up and last for days, even a week. I'm looking for confirmation here about people who have reactions of foods that last days. I hoping that strict Paleo will resolve my issues, being fatigue, low energy, and mental fog. It must be that my body attacks itself when I consume something that triggers it. I spent the first 20 years of my life not having these problems, I don't see why this can't be fixed.

I mean the Gluten peptides that are found in Wheat, Rye, and Barley. You said "But most of the time, it's just that tiny bit of something that derives from grains that makes my symptoms turn up and last for days, even a week."....so which grain derived food were you talking about?

I am for sure not eating grains, but early on I did some self re-tests with all the listed allergens. Been a long time since I had a cheat on purpose. As for resolution of these troubles as a whole: Its possible I have IGG reactions to other foods that were not on the various tests, like pork for example. Or its possible something, that I haven't already tried or been tested for, is the problem, and yet remains undiscovered. (for a strange yet relevant example: my cousin's intestines were all twisted in the wrong ways and wrong places. Now that its fixed, so are her tummy troubles).

wow thanks. This makes sense to me. If you get this, I'm curious whether you are eating grains? You should have resolved problems if you cut out all grains.

I agree, but by gluten don't you mean grains, otherwise known as the seeds of grass, something that no one in their right mind would eat?

it's along the lines of an autoimmune response. For people with serious health conditions, stict paleo isn't a joke, it's probably the only way to really cure your condition.

Makes sense to me. When I travel, I try not to eat non-paleo stuff, but I know when something snuck through when I feel crappy and the rash I get from wheat comes back.

Yep, Gluten intolerance is WAY more common than most people think. The problem with Gluten intolerance and Celiac disease, is that the problem never actually goes away, or "get's better". The anti-bodies versus Gluten peptides will be in your body ready to pounce for the rest of your life. So, Gluten needs to be completely excluded forever from your diet, or if you choose to indulge you know that you will have a reaction.

For me, my seasonal allergies, and cat allergy were the tip off that I had Gluten intolerance. Once I removed Gluten from my diet my allergies went away. If I eat ANY Gluten at all, they return....usually the next day. I kick myself every time I do it too!

There are MANY reasons that cutting grains and carbs on the whole out of our diets, makes us all feel so much better. Gluten, Leaky Gut, Blood sugar control....etc...etc....are all related, and all exacerbate the problem.

I have high IGG reactions to gluten, eggs, soy, and dairy. If I eat any of those items, (1 egg was enough to do this), my digestive system becomes enflamed and bloated, especially on my upper left side under my ribs. Lots of pain! That will last at least 3 days, although there may be damage or distress going on longer than that, but its just not as painful. If I keep eating the offending food, then I get horrible joint pain and colon pain. If it gets to that point it takes over a week to settle down. Even though I feel awful in the tummy department 24/7 -those foods cause a noticeable and lasting effect. Despite this picture of gloom, I am actively still working on it and am always trying new things to help heal my gut. (have been for years!)

they say that it takes at least 15 days to get gluten out of your system, so it makes sense that you've ingested something and feel the effects for a while. And if you continue to unknowingly ingest one thing or another, add another 15 days more!!
