Avatar_m_tn Extreme Carbohydrate Intolerance Looking for help to diagnose on an Extreme Carbohydrate Intolerance case that has gone on for 13 years. Through trial and error I determined that I can only eat protein and green vegetables. When eat any other foods I get an extreme allergic eye reaction of redness, pus discharge at night, crusting, itchiness, inflammation, sensitivity to light. This reaction happens even when I eat something as simple as a carrot.

Avatar_f_tn I'm thinking it still could be a carbohydrate intolerance, or Magnesium deficiency, or an autoimmune disease like MS. Sorry this is so long, but any advice anyone has would help a lot!

Avatar_f_tn Metametrix has an IgG4 Food Antibodies test (90 Antigens), extremely accurate for identifying hidden food allergies and sensitivities. You might also benefit from their urine Organic Acids Test, which would show you how well your protein, carbohydrate and fatty acid metabolism is working. It would be up to your doctor (or nutritionist) to know which test would be most beneficial to find the true cause of your weight loss, pain etc. Finding the right practitioner is crucial.
Avatar_n_tn Entirely based on your description of the situation, it looks like your neighbor is suffering from adult carbohydrate intolerance. “Carbohydrate intolerance is the inability of the body to completely process the nutrient carbohydrate (a classification that includes sugars and starches) into a source of energy for the body, usually because of the deficiency of an enzyme needed for digestion.
Avatar_f_tn I would like to push the idea of the ketogenic diet with my Mom and my sister's caregivers and their superiors, but would first like some input from families and/or medical professionals who have had to deal with lactose intolerance and the ketogenic diet, and also perhaps some bowel obstruction problems and how that might be averted, as well.
Avatar_n_tn I have food seudoalergy , ( don't degradate all histamine that I ate ) so the most easy way out when I have to choose food are carbohidrates , which food I can select to reduce weight and don't acumulate histamine , there is any guide that I can access ?
Avatar_n_tn Have anyone looked into carbohydrate intolerance (this would cover fruit and veggie and grain).
Avatar_n_tn Hi Entirely based on your symptoms you could be having a gall bladder problem like a stone(s) in gall bladder or chronic infection. Alternatively you could be having carbohydrate intolerance. “Carbohydrate intolerance is the inability of the body to completely process the nutrient carbohydrate (a classification that includes sugars and starches) into a source of energy for the body, usually because of the deficiency of an enzyme needed for digestion.
Avatar_n_tn You could also have some kind of carbohydrate intolerance to the sweeteners used in cola drinks. About quinine being present in colas, I am not sure. But yes, quinine if present can cause allergic reactions.You should consult an allergy specialist and get yourself tested for allergies to ingredients of colas so that you can avoid them in other food stuffs too. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
Avatar_f_tn Hi Thanks for the detailed post. I think you are suffering from adult onset carbohydrate intolerance. Enzymes needed to digest carbohydrates decrease in adulthood due to celiac disease and tropical sprue (which affect absorption in the intestine) or intestinal infections and injuries. This is diagnosed using oral tolerance tests. With proper management this can be taken care of. Sinus symptoms may or may not be related to carbohydrates. It could be due to crabs you mentioned. Hope this helps.
Avatar_n_tn These foods are common offenders in people with your symptoms. Another diet is the low carb diet. Some people have a carbohydrate intolerance and do great on this diet - check with your doctor if you'd like to give that a try. When following restrictive diets read up on the supplements that are recommended for each diet - they are there for a reason. A food elimination diary is a good place to start.
Avatar_n_tn Tests such as upper and/or lower endoscopies can be considered to rule out any serious GI disorder, and tests for malabsorption - including a fecal fat test, and tests for carbohydrate intolerance can be considered. Taking Gas-X would help the symptoms, but I would further pursue it to ensure there are no serious causes for your bloating. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
Avatar_m_tn The other possibility is gluten intolerance. Intolerance can also be to egg, protein, carbohydrate, fish, sea water food etc. Hence it is important to consult an allergy specialist to rule out what food allergies you have. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar_n_tn The classic manifestations of malabsorption are diarrhea with pale, greasy, voluminous, foul-smelling stools and weight loss despite adequate food intake. Carbohydrate malabsorption may be a possibility, given the fact that you are sensitive to carbohydrates. In addition to the lactose intolerance test, there are other tests to consider. This would include the D-xylose test which measures the absorptive capacity of the proximal small intestine.
745152_tn?1233147603 recently my intolerance is becoming evident as i get pain in abdomen and diarrhea after large carbohydrate diet. I dont have any food allergy as it was explored by elimination diet. I want to know what is the prognosis as I have almost quit my job due to very poor health , energy and stamina.
Avatar_m_tn By any chance did you get a gastric bypass—if yes, then this could be due to Dumping’s syndrome. Other than this carbohydrate intolerance and insulin secreting tumors of the pancreas could be a problem. Secondary lactase enzyme deficiency due to celiac sprue, tropical sprue or other intestinal infections too could be a cause.
Avatar_n_tn gluten, lactose, casein) and there are food allergies. Some people have carbohydrate intolerance. There is yeast overgrowth. Have you been checked for endometriosis? Ovarian cysts? Stress also sets off many people's intestines. Hang in there! Something will help - medications, stress relief, food elimination. It just takes time waiting for appts and tests to be done. Good luck!

Underlying infectious condition-Lyme, Mycoplasma, Mycotoxins Watch your carbohydrate consumption. Sweets,soda,sugar,breads,pasta cookies,cakes etc. Eat healthy and nutritious foods. Avoid junk food totally. Get your glucose levels tested. Do a Candida saliva test. Search for YouTube Video for this. Do Dr.
1659011_tn?1307489747 You don't have to actually be allergic and you don't actually have to have Celiac to have gluten intolerance. And, yes, gluten intolerance can irritate both the upper and the lower digestive tract, so, yes, it can irritate GERD. If you get aching elsewhere in the gut, it is likely aggravating the IBS. This doesn't sounds so strange to me, because I can't eat standard bread either.
1050938_tn?1311557178 I was eating so little overall at the time, I was fooled into thinking that sugar didn't affect anything because I was still able to lose weight (though it took a lot of work that at the time I didn't realize was NOT necessary). Obviously, the weight never stayed off, because eventually the balance of healthy food vs.
268911_tn?1213748381 Yes, many celiacs have other food intolerance issues. I am lactose intolerant and many other celiacs are too. They say the small intestine villi that are destroyed in celiac are the producers of lactase, the enzyme that digests lactose. So, no villi, no enzyme, no breakdown of the lactose sugar, Some celiacs go on to develop other food intolerances after going gluten free (GF). So far I have been ok on that score. I am dairy free, soy free, and of course gluten free.
Avatar_n_tn I have the same problem. I used to have GERD, bloating, extreme gas. Few years ago while on Dr.Atkins diet, I realized that my GERD and gas problem went away. Of course couldn't stay on the diet for too long. I had gone to see GI specialist, and asked why I felt better on low carbohydrate diet, his answer "no clue". He gave a bunch of medicine to take, but I avoid taking medicines. I was convinced that I could get better without medicine.
Avatar_n_tn For lunch I will have a turkey sandwich, yogurt, and grapes. Dinner is usually chicken or steak with salad and potatoes. I try to stay away from the junk food as much as possible. What concerns me the most is that I once weighed 230 lbs about 2.5 to 3 years ago and I have lost 40 lbs over the course of that time without trying to do so. I have no pain or discomfort with any of this. I am just worried that I may not be digesting my food correctly or something.
Avatar_f_tn Yes, your symptoms do sound like IBS. Your rapid weight loss is of concern though. Gluten intolerance could be an issue. I know you like your italian food pizza,pasta, bread, but if you could endure 2 weeks of very low carb diet with no sugars, no grains, then you could switch to a gluten-free diet for 2 weeks, only if you are feeling better. If you are feeling better on the gluten-free diet then it is likely you have a gluten intolerance.
Avatar_n_tn There are even (organic--to avoid pesticides) brown rice pastas and breads, at health food stores. 8)CHEW FOOD SLOWLY AND THOROUGHLY. Don't gulp down food. Avoid eating when upset or angry, when possible. 9)AVOID JUNK FOODS, including "denatured" foods like WHITE bread, WHITE rice, etc. Avoid packaged foods, and cook from "scratch" when possible. 10)AVOID ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS LIKE THE PLAGUE! READ your LABELS WITH A MAGNIFYING GLASS!!!
Avatar_n_tn Last week my health practitioner diagnosed gluten and lactose intolerance, after few different docs were trying to convince me that I need antidepressants and a psychotherapy. My main symptoms were pains in the stomach, constant heartburn, loss of appetite,very loose stool, gases, weight loss, weak muscles, fatigue and exhaustion, but the worse was constant anxiety and depressive moods.
