I can safely eat pistachios. I like them salted and roasted in lemon juice, and use them for between meal snacks. Also cashew nuts and hazelnuts give me no problems, nor do sunflower seeds. I assume nuts contain the good sorts of fats (not the saturated type) so they are less of a problem than other types of fatty food.It's so difficult trying to figure out what causes attacks, esp as my blood sugar crashes easily! Sometimes I can eat something like dark chocolate (high fat AND caffeine) and be fine, other times it triggers D that lasts all day. Maybe stress just tips the balance.

Walnuts and peanuts are killers for me. There is a certain, not so pleasant feeling I have gotten from walnuts since I was little. Peanuts just result in horrible gas. While they don't give me D, any more, they both certainly still cause discomfort in my stomach. Mark

Nuts like pistachios are yummy, but... i usually just eat a little (defitely not a whole bunch), which is usually fine for me. But then, i'd be careful not to roast them too much -- they do have good, non-saturated fat but (too much) roasting makes the fat saturated, which kinda defeats the original purpose of eating nuts. hope this helps

Here's what I go by:If a food bothers me consistently, I don't eat that food, or should I say, hardly ever!
Especially nuts! I love them, but just can't eat too many and only rarely. Popcorn is another thing that I've almost entirely given up. I try to be careful about eating more than one thing that may not be an easily digestible food, such as raisins, nuts, corn, etc. I can't ever eat corn! The last time I ate it was about 5 years ago, and I almost made a trip to the ER. Put it this way, I took 3 Bentyl!!! and did not touch the cramping. Thought I was dying. If you try something and consistently get the same bad result, cut it out of your diet, says I! But, what the heck do I know!
