LindaJoy Posted June 12, 2009 Report Share Posted June 12, 2009 Okay, this is probably one of the weirdest questions that has been or will be posted here. But, I think most of you know that I'm on a diet that consists of nothing but white potatoes (peeled and microwaved, I eat about six one pounders a day. After they've been nuked, there's not that much to them.) I also eat lamb. Since my Addison's diagnosis, we haven't even worked on my diet. Anyway, I've been getting pretty sick after eating. I looked up a bunch of stuff to see if eating too many potatoes could be causing a problem, and I found something about potatoe toxicity. I read it and was floored. There were my symptoms under something called Solanine poisoning. The potatoes I eat aren't green, they are peeled, and I don't eat ones that have started to grow. But, still, nightshades are said to contain some amount of solanine, and I'm eating six potatoes a day.Have any of you heard of this before? I know this is bizarre. Hey, if nothing else, I've made you smile.Thank you for your responses. I really appreciate any that I get. My husband and I have been researching this, and we've found some articles that talk like this could be a possibility, and then ones that say no, we don't grow Solanine-filled potatoes here in the US as they have to be a certain variety of potatoe, which I don't believe.Anyway, would like your thoughts on this. I know this isn't exactly POTS, but this toxicity does cause a lot of neurological problems, which is weird as I'm back in the hospital again seeing a neurologist.
