    Had to go thru so many tests (ultrasound, endoscopy, etc.) & be told I "just have heartburn" only to randomly find a video on YouTube explaining Tight Junctions...I might not have Celiac, but gluten does not agree with my digestive tract 🙅🏻‍♀️ thank goodness for digestive enzymes

    Yeah definitely caffeine but can't cut it out all together so have to have it at some point I drink decaffeinated tea aswell.

    Can we add an every single thing option? I can eat healthy and have little processed sugars and I'm still dying in the bathroom I think.

  • poodlelover28

    Some dairy, like regular milk or ice cream, messes with my asthma. But that's it.

  • Hollybelle

    Really anything can set off a flare. Too much sugar. Too much protein. Too many carbs. Too many veg. Random never the same.

      onions are a big one for me! I didn’t eat any red meat for years, then realised that it sometimes made me sick because people put onions in burgers! I can eat mince meat now, and I avoid onions at all costs

  • stormer

  • SomeKindaKid

  • royalty

    Mainly artificial dyes. But maybe I should cut most of these out once I can afford it and see if there is any difference.

  • Creator

    So far, the only food that gives me the pain is Pizza, and that's only if I accidentally eat too much, I have to eat it slow and not alot at once or I feel like I'm dying later.

  • BbyBunnny

    Almost everything. If I can't have it due to my gastroparesis or all the ulcers due to my GP, I can't have it due to my food allergies/sensitivities.

  • Femalepotato

    Greasy/ Spicy food.

  • SapleMyrup

    Sodas and artificial sweeteners kill me

  • Pheonyx

    1d

    it's strange, some sodas really upset my stomach and some are completely fine and I haven't quite figured it out yet ^^;; but cheese specifically always makes me feel super sick, along with red meat and any hot drinks giving me symptoms similar of food poisoning or an allergic reaction of some kind. not sure why it happens but I just try to avoid them as a result (or I live with the consequences of eating cheese anyway because it tastes so good but is so goddam deadly aaa)

  • Whitelaws254

    Random just what ever my stupid useless body decides

  • AnimalBoy

    My only sensitivity that isn't an allergy is for specific types of icing. Usually decorators icing is the worst and cream cheese, whipped cream, and marshmallow icings seem to be the best for some reason.

  • Tired247

    1d

    Anything with a high histamine level, so basically all delicious food 😭

  • Q31525

    easy, milk affects me the most. but not because of my illness. i’m mildly allergic to it 😅 won’t stop me from eating ice cream though

  • Ashcookie

    For me it's sugar like even if I have a lot of fruit it'll mess me up. That's why I just stick to just blueberries a day.

  • AndromedaSpark

    Dairy, apples, grease, overly processed food

  • krinkle

    Any caffeine will do it, but also I need it to function with the amount of sleep my illness is costing me 😭
