Metmom has been on many of the same threads I've visited in the past where we've discussed Celiac disease, general gluten resistance, and a variety of other built in allergies.

One I don't think we discussed is the absence of lgE antibodies. If you don't produce that type (which cause "inflamation") your immune system is going to produce others in response to various proteins, etc. Those other antibodies could be far more devastating than the lgE.

It's worth a test.

One you can use is to test for Celiac because it's based on the idea that an elevated lgE level is demonstrably related to Gluten intolerance ~ and they can then do a biopsy to confirm that it causes intestinal damage.

Obviously if you take that test and have no lgE antibodies at all, that's your problem ~ not strictly Celiac.

This is pretty much an hereditary deal and it's restricted to the Eastern Sa'ami (and their descendants worldwide ~ thanks to the whale trade ~ fishing industry ~ and the need to cut down trees).

I worry about it enough that any time I encounter any food that causes the slightest problem I review everything I ate to see if it was wheat gluten, or that new food. If it's not gluten, I give up the new food.

My diet is getting limited, but thanks be to God I cannot eat sheep meat because, lo and behold, I inherited that Sa'ami trait that says sheep really stink. So my final diet will undoubtedly be limited to potato chips and rice.

Note that I don't think this problem is at all a laughing matter ~ but when the Lord deals you a deck that says "Unto you I give reindeer meat and lingonberries" you accept that and move on.

Frankly, if you haven't tried it, check out ostrich ~ it has a very high iron content (of biologically digestible and necessary iron compounds) and can help fight back at the anemia that comes with these limited diets. The meat tastes great and is a real break from chicken ~

I truly hope that MetMom finds the answer soon.

I know what it’s like to have problems eating.

I spent 3 years living on an anti-allergen diet.

Horrible.

Didn’t really fix things permanently.

Prayers and peace for her.

Metmom, my family also suffers from difficulties relating to food. My mom just spent four months in the hospital on a pic line, so I have some understanding of how you feel. Some days it is so discouraging, and you wonder if you’ll ever figure out what is really going on.

We are praying for you and just keep holding on, to Him who shared all our pain and sorrows, and loves us with an everlasting love.

As I type this I bring your needs before Him, asking Him to give you wisdom, peace, and healing.

Father, we lift up Metmom and all her family, and ask her to give her abundantly whatever she needs.

A friend of mine just sent me this little CBN about a Christian artist, and it lifted me up. I’ll put it here so if you feel up to watching perhaps it will lift you up too. It’s about a Christian artist (one of my favorites) and how he is taking on a particularly special challenge, the Resurrection.

More prayers for Metmom. Even though you suggested new ideas were not what was needed right now, maybe something might turn up, should she want to scan down the thread.

Sometimes prayers are answered in unusual ways, maybe God will guide someone to post something that might be helpful.

Prayers for answers for metmom! I can only imagine the frustration. And I can imagine all the advice that leads to no where. The Lord’s healing hand may be the only answer. But, I will risk one more suggestion. Mary Ruth Swope a born again believer and physician wrote on the Green Leaves of Barley. In her book she talks about how young Barley leaves are a cleanser and healing herb for many toxifying conditions in the body. Also Barley was an important grain offering of first fruits unto the Lord in the Old Testament.

The Bible declares barley leaves to be God’s champion food creation – the most perfect and complete of all foods. Leviticus 23:9-11 (offerings had to be perfect!)

Please accept this in the spirit in which it is intended as I genuinely feel for your plight having suffered several inexplicable debillitating ailments. You seem to have addressed all physical medical assessments. I strongly encourage you to schedule a consult with a psychiatrist to rule out non-physiologic causes. When my general practisioners couldn't figure out what was causing my problems, they referred me to a psychiatrist, which infuriated me at first, but I went and he ordered lab tests which revealed I had physical problems, i.e. hormonal deficiencies, NOT mental or menopause related, which were wreaking havoc with my life. I have had a lifelong problem with depression, and the blood tests revealed my body does not produce seratonin and I couldn't be happy if I wanted to. He prescribed an antidote, and my life has literally been transformed. You owe it to yourself to find out if someone thinking outside the box might be able to help you identify the cause of your food allergies.


Best of luck to you.

To: muawiyah; All

I’ve had skin prick testing, RAST testing, colonoscopy, endoscopy, been tested for celiac, Candida allergies, mastocytosis (not the bone marrow test), eosinophilic gastroenteritis, and a bunch of other things I’ve never heard of. Almost of which has come back negative or normal. What does show a test reaction, does not correlate with my reactions. I don’t react much to most of the things that do show positive.

My allergist has suggested that my reactions are through another mechanism that is not the typical allergic response pathway. The issue is trying to figure out what that is and if there is anything that can be done about it, or if I face the prospect of starving to death.

One FReeper some time ago, suggested I get tested for Mast Cell Activation Disorder and I am presently pursuing that avenue with my allergists encouragement. I’ve submitted a request to be evaluated at a regional medical center that does cutting edge research on it and am waiting to see if I qualify. Apparently, they are quite busy and can’t take just anybody who comes along.

I also react to foods which are high in histamine, which indicates a different kind of issue. I am react and break out badly to all vegetables and most fruits, many of which are not high in histamine, so I think that there’s more than one thing going on here.

I am also fighting a chronic oral thrush infection that I got from being on anti-biotics a couple years ago for a bad throat infection. It doesn’t seem to have ever cleared up completely although I fight it constantly. The least little increase in carbs or sugar and I’m done.

These food reactions have been a lifelong thing to varying degrees, but usually quite manageable. It’s only within the last 15 years that it’s started its downward spiral with ground lost and never gained back.

*sigh* I feel your pain.....

I would love to be able to thank you all personally for your prayers and support, but am overwhelmed at the sheer number of responses. So, thank you from the depths of my heart and please, if you think of it, keep muawiyah in your prayers as well. We’re in much the same boat. Only now I can’t eat potatoes chips any more. Potatoes are one of the two foods which recently dropped out of my diet. Other other was oats, which I did learn to like.... somewhat....
Eating the same thing for every meal for months on end does get rather tedious.

I’ve had ostrich, BTW. A supermarket which we lived near once carried it and it is excellent. We really liked it, but there wasn’t enough demand for it and the supplier quit carrying it. It’d pass for a fine cut of beef any say, for those who are interested.

Thanks all.

I never heard of a pic line before. What’s that?

I hope it isn’t what my allergist was referring to the other day as a last resort kind of thing.

Is that intravenous nutrition?

Barley is one thing I do test allergic to, although I’m not sure why as it was never really a part of my diet. But I tried a small bit anyway.

Never again. Not worth the consequences.

I had these types of reactions, mostly the breaking out, since I was an infant.

Stress can aggravate allergic responses, that is true, so mental attitude can play a role in the severity of the reaction.

However, the problem is, I will be going along, happily eating something that has hitherto been safe, and within a couple weeks, I am clearly reacting to it and it goes on the don not eat list.

I can’t any more.

Local honey has helped mr. mm tremendously. Even my allergist recommends eating it. He says it really does work although not quite as good as his shots :)

But for those who can’t do the shots, it’s an option.

Besides, honey has a lot of sugar (no kidding) and makes the yeast go crazy.
