Re: Gluten Intolerance and Ulcerative Colitis: from Pedro on 2008-02-29
I have heard and read so many things on what I should eat and shouldn't eat. I "officialy" have had UC for 1 1/2 years and recently had a violent flare up. During the flare up I was getting worse and couldn't figure out why. I was eating crackers, bread and water. I supposedley have no gluten Intolerance and was told in the past I can eat whatever I want. After doing some research I decided to go on a gluten free diet, since nothing else seemed to be working. I have gotten a lot better but I have had a very restrictive diet since then.
I see many gluten free recipes that included spicy things, which I know I can't have. I also have read in the past I should not have fresh fruit or vegetables because of the UC. That all vegetables must be cooked and to stay away from certains ones. Can someone provide a list of foods/recipes that would work for someone with UC and wants to be gluten free? Thank you in advance.
...also I currently have an infection in my urine and my doctors can not figure out where it is coming from. I have had bad pains in my kidney area and recently did a renal sonogram and am waiting for the results. Any thoughts
Re: Gluten Intolerance and Ulcerative Colitis: from Peter on 2008-02-29
Since you have had a positive reponse to a gluten-free diet, I would go forward with the hypothesis that the ulcerative collitis is the result of gluten allergy / intolerance.
I would continue to avoid spicy foods, coffee, alcohol, and soya, but introduce more fruit and vegetables into your diet. If the improvement continues you can broaden your diet while keeping it gluten-free.
Infections plus kidney pains suggest a diagnosis by the professionals is essential, but possibly made worse by adverse reactions to food and a restricted diet
non-coeliac gluten sensitivity: from geri on 2008-03-03
I've just had the biopsies for suspected coeliac--blood tests were negative. My consultant thinks it won't be coeliac as i don't have the classic symptoms but he thinks it's an intolerance to wheat. Can you tell me it an intolerance is treated with a gluten -free diet. many thanks
non-coeliac gluten sensitivity: from Peter on 2008-03-03
Yes, an intolerance to wheat should be treated in exactly the same way as the coeliac condition with a completely gluten-free and wheat-free diet

My understanding is that Malt Vinegar contains gluten.
Wine, Cider, and Rice Vinegars do not contain gluten

I had ulcerative colitis and learned that I should not eat gluten. Can gluten cause inflammation in colon and sharp pain in colon (also upset stomach
Re Gluten intolerance and Pain: from Peter on 2008-03-20
Ulcerative colitis is simply a label for your symptoms.
An adverse reaction to gluten can cause inflamation anywhere in the digestive system, from the mouth, throat, through to the colon and rectum.
So gluten can be a cause of ulcerative colitis

I live in South Africa and suffer from gluten entheropathy, very bad if i just have a bite of gluten. The white maize meal is a staple food for most South - Africans. It is a great replacement for gluten rich foods, you can put it in meatballs and patties to bind it, eat it in the mornings make savoury tarts with it( called Paptert) eat it with milk and sugar and even make a maize bread with it
