      Actually, No and no. The opposite is true about the immune system. In people with celiac disease (which is an auto immune disorder) the immune system is too active, always on guard. Antibiotic over use kills the gut flora, which allows candida albicans to proliferate, which in turn atrophies the villi. They die, leaving tiny holes in the small intestine (leaky gut syndrome) where long and medium chain proteins cross the barrier into the blood, causing an immunogenic's better to research than theorize.

      VERY interesting. 

      I get a bad reaction to red wine. It's not a gluten reaction however. My neck muscles get super tense and sore. It does not happen when i drink white wine tho.

      Quercetin Has Helped Me A Great Deal
      hi. I am Dx Celiac and of course am/was allergic to the Big five.
      I was reacting to everything and the worst symptom was the DH. I hate it so much! It is so painful, so gross looking as it makes me feel grubby and dirty.
      I stumbled across an article on Cromyln (which most here already know about, and Mast cell disorders) I know my stupid Doctor would never RX that for me, he would tell me my disease is "not bad enough" No, it just means he wouldn't make any money writing me that RX. Canadian medicine.
      I digress...
      With deeper searching I found out about quercetin. I've tried 100's of supplements and thought there was really no harm in trying. So I ordered some and I have been taking it for about 3 weeks.
      The first couple of weeks I got a DH flare up that was pretty bad. My DH affects my fingernails as well...more accurately my left pinkie. The nail will literally come off. I thought it was nail psoriasis  but my dermatologist told me it was DH blisters in the nail bed.
      With this last flare my nail split and nearly all came off.
      Then something amazing happened.
      The nail has started growing back normally!  
      I have NO DH blisters and I have been eating egg whites, tomatoes and feta cheese!!! 
      THIS could be it! I know I am truly allergic to wheat but my insides were so messed up I couldn't digest anything. Quercetin, along with Bone Broth and L-Glutamine may finally  be repairing my small intestine.
      I will keep youse posted if you're interested!

      Yes my skin has gotten more sensitive over time.
      I have discovered I am really sensitive to Sugar and fructose. I will get hives and or blisters on my body in odd places. Sometimes if someone touches me, i get a red itchy rash.
      Yet there are some wheat containing products I can use topically, no problem.
      I don't look at it as just celiac anymore.
      I have a mast cell disorder. That is what ANY auto immune disease is. My immune system is like a wild fire. It will burn and burn without anyway to put it out except time. Sometimes it's not that bad at all. It's a confusing affliction.
