Which of the following inflammatory foods aggravate your chronic illness the most?
Caffeine and leafy veg
Any food containing salycilates such as most fruits, caffeinated beverages, veggies except starches.
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.
Soy for me
Oh gosh so many 😥 multiple effect me in different ways, none is "worse" than the others
All of them 😭
Oddly enough, soda seems to help me! Or maybe it just helps me not be so sad about everything lol
Considering I have celiac disease, by far the answer for me is gluten
Me too all trigger it shame you can't select more than one as I just found out.
I'm lucky and no foods make my chronic pain worst. Just movement and exercise.
Some dairy, like regular milk or ice cream, messes with my asthma. But that's it.
Really anything can set off a flare. Too much sugar. Too much protein. Too many carbs. Too many veg. Random never the same.
Garlic, onion, peppers, acidic foods and butterfingers
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
I can't have acidic stuff.. pineapple,oranges ect. Which stinks because I love them!!
Red meat and processed foods make me feel emotionally horrible, my Dr advised a Mediterranean diet and it's helping a lot
For me dairy sometimes does sometimes doesn’t. Greasy food just makes me feel 🤢
I’m allergic to chocolate
I have a life threatening wheat allergy
i was told to not eat anything with citric acid within 30min of taking my meds, the only soda it isnt in is coke and its in soooo many processed foods TT
Also alcohol and nicotine
I really don’t fully know yet, I’d give a lot to be able to work this out (especially very quickly and painlessly)
Dairy mostly. Coffee can give me bad cramps tho
Mainly artificial dyes. But maybe I should cut most of these out once I can afford it and see if there is any difference.
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.
Basically any sugar, i have fructose malabsorption (fructose intolerance) And fructose is in like everything, so eating most foods cause me stomach pain
Caffeine and alcohol
DAIRY products. Moved to coconut and soy.
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.
Greasy/ Spicy food.
Sodas and artificial sweeteners kill me
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)
Random just what ever my stupid useless body decides
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.
Anything with a high histamine level, so basically all delicious food 😭
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
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.
Dairy, apples, grease, overly processed food
and rosé wine and many fruits if not all of them
Any caffeine will do it, but also I need it to function with the amount of sleep my illness is costing me 😭
