I reacted to the nuts from the lab test. Cashews worst, then walnuts and then almonds. I assume these might be the worst offenders for most people. It would be nice to find a nut I can carry in my purse if I feel my blood sugar dipping. What is a good nut to replace the cashews I used to carry? Do many people react to pistachios? To pecans? Are there any others that seem safest? (I really dislike Brazil Nuts.)

I have been eating some pecans we got as a gift. You can see my EnteroLab results under my screen name.

I don't want to jinx it but I seem to be improving, finally, after being on LDN since July 18th. Capsules from Skip's Pharmacy the first month (doctor then bailed), DIY tablets from India until Dec. 8th, then transdermal from Skip's (phone consult prescription).
DISCLAIMER: I am not a doctor and don't play one on TV.

Food Intolerances : Gluten, casein, soy, and avenin, (avenin is the prolamin in oats, which is equivalent to the gluten in wheat), beef, grapes, peanuts, cashews, almonds, (but nut butters seem OK except for peanuts), citric acid, chocolate, and agar.

Personally, all nuts seem to cause problems for me, even nut butters, but I can tolerate almond milk just fine. Another member here reported exactly the same situation. It's not common to be sensitive to all nuts though. Most of us are better able to tolerate nut butters than the nuts themselves, because the nut butters are easier to digest and apparently less abrasive on our intestines. Certain types of nut butters are available in individual serving packages (foil pouches) at many health food stores, and they make a convenient portable snack, or snack ingredient to be used with rice snaps or rice cakes, etc.

Unless your overall score on the 11 antigenic foods test was relatively high (say, 20 or above), you might be able to tolerate almonds (or almond butter), if that was your least reactive nut in the test result.

Another possible substitute might be certain seeds, such as pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds, for example, or their butters.


It is suspected that some of the hardest material known to science can be found in the skulls of GI specialists who insist that diet has nothing to do with the treatment of microscopic colitis.

I read somewhere that people react to the peel of the nuts, because the peel contains phytic acid (is that the correct word in English?) and that this vanish if the nuts are soaked in water overnight.

But after having searched on the internet and having read this article, incl the comments, I'm more confused than enlightened:


Collagenous Colitis diagnosis in 2010
Psoriasis in 1973, symptom free in 2014
GF, CF and SF free since April, 2013
