Hi guys. I'm hoping you can offer some suggestions.
I have oral allergy syndrome, so avoid many fruits and vegetables. And spices too.
I swell a *lot* .. especially after eating. Some (face, throat n limbs) they have said is angioedema. The abdomen they think is not angioedema. I have as much as 12" difference in my waistline throughout the day (all in front poking out like I'm pregnant).
They suspect celiac's. I have mild villi blunting in my intestine. They have a genetic test underway.
They also suspect fructose intolerance .. esp in light of my oral allergy syndrome. Testing this on Friday.
I am currently eating low fodmap and gluten free. I am also avoiding known allergens.
I am still swelling. I'd like some suggestions for what might be causing it and the order for removing things.
For example, I am only using potato and rice as carbs/starches. Rice crispies with lactaid and blueberries was fine
Tuna with rice crisps (rice, oil, salt) caused swelling.
Mongolian barbecue with meats, carrot, green beans, salt, brown rice, weak iced tea with sweet n low... Huge swelling
Baked potato with real butter, some swelling.
Potato chips (potato, oil, salt) big swelling.
I'm also eating hard cheese.
So, I'm not sure if this is some kind of an oil problem (not sure if butter and other vegetable based oils share anything in common)
Or if it's some kind of a carb problem (grains n roots)...
Any idea if there are food groupings that suggest an additional sensitivity I should avoid all together?
My food list is quite small. But I'm willing to go smaller if it will help
