Elimination Of Allergies With Diet
Not very much: The fodmap elimination diet is designed for people with irritable bowel syndrome (ibs). It's goal is to reduce sugars and short-chain carbohydrates in the diet. The major overlap is with wheat as most of the other foods avoided in this diet are fruit & vegetables that are not common food allergy offenders. ...Read more

Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more
No wheat, no dairy: Some people have problems with the protein in wheat called gluten. Others just need to cut down on their intake of simple carbohydrates. Some people can't digest the sugar called lactose in milk. Others don't tolerate the milk protein. For most people the quantity is what's important. Whole wheat is better than plain white. And milk for people >2 years old should be 1% or skim. ...Read more

Part 2-diagnosed RA patients, with active disease, to try elimination diets of nightshades, gluten, etc before starting medications (dmards)?
No: If that works we would do this. We don't because it doesn't work. The rheumatoid arthritis patient needs immediate referral to a rheumatologist to initiate rapid therapy to suppress and control their arthritis. Early dmard and biologics are more efficient when started as early as possible. ...Read more

Depression and diet may be related: Several studies have found that people who ate a poor quality diet — one that was high in processed meat, chocolates, sweet desserts, fried food, refined cereals and high-fat dairy products — were more likely to report symptoms of depression. The good news is that the people who ate a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and fish were less likely to report being depressed. These results are in line with other research findings that healthy diets help protect against disease. For example, studies suggest that people who follow the Mediterranean diet — which emphasizes fruits, vegetables and fish, and limits meat and dairy products — have lower rates of depression and other diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, diabetes and heart disease. More research is needed on the connection between depression and diet. In the meantime, it would be wise to cut back on the less nutritious options and make healthier choices. ...Read more
Does a prolonged elimination diet (eg AIP) cause food allergies or anaphylaxis to foods that you eliminated?
Not usually: If you eliminated a food you are allergic to even for a long time, the reaction is unpredictable on reintroduction but it is unlikely that this action alone eliminates the food allergy. However some food allergies do tend to fade away (milk, egg etc0 with time-whether this is from having avoided it for a long time or not is unclear. ...Read more
Is there evidence that diet changes (minimize sugar/carbs, gluten free etc...) can help a child with adhd?
Unless a child has: Gluten enteropathy (celiac disease) documented by specific laboratory tests, there's no medical reason to use a gluten-free diet. Likewise, removing milk/milk products is necessary only for a milk protein allergy. There's no scientific evidence of efficacy of dietary manipulation in treatment of core symptoms of adhd., except in a very few who are sensitive to food additives. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is the consumption of milk and other dairy products correlated with the prevalence of prostate cancer?
No: While the cause of prostate is not known, and there are links to families with cancer, we next ascribe diet, mostly rish in saturated fats and red meats. Increasingly "healthy" diets are rich in fresh fruits and vegtables, lycopenes from processed tomatoes, elagic acid anti-oxidants from berries and cruciferous vegetables. Vitamin e appears not to help. Milk/dairy has not been indicted! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

No difference in Rx: A very recent research study found that people who had been infected with the intestinal parasite Giardia had an elevated risk of irritable bowel sundrome. Maybe other intestinal infections like shigellosis can do the same. However, it probably makes no differenence i how IBS should be treated. This is something to discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

Allergy not just GI: Dairy intolerance is caused by an inability to digest milk sugar lactose into two simpler sugars. This results in gas, cramps, bloating, flatulence & diarrhea. Dairy allergy may cause these same symptoms but typically also causes vomiting, skin rashes like hives or eczema & even triggers allergic rhinitis & asthma. If symptoms all GI try lactose-free milk. You'll have no symptoms if intolerant. ...Read more
What are common symptoms of allergy or intolerance to wheat (not celiac disease)? How is allergy/intol determined - thru testing or elimination diet?
Intolerance/immune: Intolerance consists of any undesired effects from from wheat and there is no definite test for it (other than a double-blind food challenge). Allergy to wheat often affects the guts but may cause hives, swelling, nasal congestion, and even rarely anaphylaxis. Allergy can be detected by skin testing or allergy blood test but double-blind food challenge remains the gold standard. ...Read more
Bacteria make gas: A normal person eating a healthy diet can get flatulent. One reason is excess fiber. Since humans don't digest the fiber, intestinal bacteria will feed on it and make gas as a byproduct. Another reason is lactose intolerance, in which one can't digest the lactose (milk sugar) he eats. Again, bacteria will feed on it. A third reason is sugar alcohols, like maltitol, that can cause gas & diarrhea. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes.: Carbs are fermented on the small bowel. A low carb diet eradicates this, and minimizes the only macronutrients not needed for life, carbohydrates. My patients who have gone in this direction, improve. This is observational. No studies exist at present that fully support this. However, consider the per capita consumption of sugar is 37lb/ american, & 28.6lbof corn syrup. Up 5x from 1950. ...Read more
