SeaSalt replied to the topic 'Re: yoghurt???? Is it high in histamine???' in the forum. 5 months ago

Hi - just joined and my first post is to give info not ask for it!
I found this helpful, having the same question. I checked my Sainsburys Greek to find it has one from each category, harmful, beneficial and neutral. I'm eating it just fine but my food issues are not serious.

Probiotics that Increase Histamine

As mentioned previously, there are a variety of bacteria that can produce histamine and some of these species are commonly found in the most popular and widely used probiotic supplements or probiotic foods. If one has high histamine, it would be best to avoid probiotics that contain these.

Lactobacillus casei
Lactobacillus reuteri
Lactobacillus bulgaricus
The following bacteria degrade histamine, so they can be used to help lower one’s histamine level. However, do be aware that bifidus can be a bully sometimes too and can try to take over and become overgrown as well, if lactobacillus is not present in sufficient amounts.

Bifidobacterium infantis
Bifidobacterium longum
Lactobacillus plantarum
Some soil based organisms
The following bacteria are neutral

Streptococcus thermophiles
Lactobacillus rhamnosus (down-regulates histamine receptors and up-regulates anti-inflammatory agents)


Carol created a new topic ' Artificial sweeteners make me lactose intolerant' in the forum. 5 months ago

Hi I was lactose intolerant for 3yrs, until my mum passed away and I stayed in her house for a week. The lactose intolerance all but went while we were there. My husband was diabetic so every drink yoghurt etc in our house had artificial sweeteners in it.

If I drink normal coke all day then I can have dairy and I am fine.

If I have diet coke then I am fine until I eat dairy, then the bloating and wind starts and I am running to the toilet. I have Lactase tablets that help a bit if I accidentally have artificial sweetener other than that I always have Imodium in my bag as a last resort.

Is there anyone else out there got the same problem?

Arler1986 created a new topic ' Low carb recipe suggestions' in the forum. 9 months ago

Can anyone here suggest some low carb recipes? It would be nice if you could share some chicken recipes which wouldn’t cause any food allergies. I had undergone a lap band surgery from a clinic in Richmond Hill ( )on Feb 1. The procedure was successful. I was looking for some diet suggestions after this procedure and found this group very interesting. Looking forward to tasty recipes.


Rebekha1 created a new topic ' Multiple food allergies?' in the forum. 10 months ago

It is very hard to choose the correct diet plan when you have multiple food allergies. In my case, this task was even more difficult because I'm overweight as well and I sought the help of an expert to get knowledgeable advice on diet and weight management ( ). I think getting the help from such servicers will help you to choose the exact and complete diet for you. Here is a link for people with food intolerance which help you to prepare delicious dishes. hope this will help you all. Thank you.


Esdaile replied to the topic 'Re: yoghurt???? Is it high in histamine???' in the forum. 11 months ago

Since my last post I twice had yoghurt again. Once following recommendations from a dietician I took alvita or some special (or specially marketed) more expensive yoghurt from Danone. Diorrhea and bad D till I stopped. Recently a last try with a "mild" "Greek style" natural yoghurt-that was yesterday. Awful D. today, so it looks very much as though yoghurt is a no no for some people with histamin issues. But jury still out on it, could it be that it is not histamin but some other issue, maybe SIBO??
A last point: I am always frustrated by the amount of times I read "get a diagnosis from your doctor" or "dont try this diet before you know you have xyz". I have been running from doctor to specialist to doctor. None can or will give me a final diagnosis. The only thing which all professional practitioners are unfailingly comeptent at is billing.


Supen1969 created a new topic ' Easy healthy recipes' in the forum. 11 months ago

Hi. I would like to share some healthy recipe which is recommended by naturopathic doctors in Mississauga.
I have tried the protein smoothie, South American salad, orange glazed salmon and the berry smoothie. They are just yummy. You should also give it a try.

karinamara replied to the topic 'Why FODMAP' in the forum. 1 year ago

Hi! My son was diagnosed with the same. I started a blog about our journey. It's fairly new (so I don't have tons of info yet - I'm getting there) and I would love to share ideas with you. I have some recipes and I started a list of acceptable foods.

But, as mention earlier, it is important to start with the elimination diet and slowly add new foods so your body has a chance to heal. Please reach out - I'm very happy to help!


AllisonT replied to the topic 'Why FODMAP' in the forum. 1 year ago

1) No. If you don't react to it, it's not necessary

2) Yes, if you're a fructose malabsorber you have to do a 2-4 week elimination diet and than re-introduce fruit and veggies.

3) Some, why should you avoid more if you don't react ro it? A low FODMAP diet ist only for people suffering from IBS, not for people wirh FM and LI.


MrSmith created a new topic ' Why FODMAP' in the forum. 1 year ago

I'm suffering from lactose intolerance and fructose malabsorption. Would it help to eat a FODMAP diet? As I understand it, I would have to avoid gluten as well? Right?


finadmin created a new topic ' New Category: FODMAP' in the forum. 1 year ago

A low FODMAP diet ist very popular and sometimes, especially with RDS patientes, a very good thing. FODMAP is associated with food intolerances as well, that's why we decided to start a FODMAP section in our forum. Hope you enjoy it and use it to discuss your FODMAP questions!


finadmin replied to the topic 'Diary improvement' in the forum. 1 year ago

Thank you for your input! We do have a list of suggestions for our future updates and we will add your suggestions.
Especially the month calendar is an update planned for the near future.

Thanks for using our app :-)


skyap created a new topic ' Diary improvement' in the forum. 1 year ago

I'd really like to see other ways to view my entries. I don't find viewing each day alone that useful. Some charts over time would be good and a month calendar view showing symptoms or the photos would also be good.

Data entry is easy though and love the photo option. Looking forward to future improvements.
