  1. I know this was written a long time ago, but I have 7 rabbits, all of whom are on a strict gluten free diet, including no oats.  This is not for them but for me!  The have cheap but tasty Grass Hay and Sherwood Forest Rabbit Pellets Some of my rabbits took a couple of weeks to get used to it, some took a couple of seconds!  They all love it now.  I am breeding rabbits and selling them as suitable for a gluten allergy sufferer.  I ship the food and when I once ran out, I bought vitamin pellets and mini alfalfa bales and Timothy hay to see me through until the pellets order came.  It's very expensive for me because I am breeding and have quite a few, but I am well now, so for me it is worth it!
  2. Airborne Gluten...

    Yes, exactly my point. Doctors know about coeliac disease, but gluten allergy is less widely talked about. Is the genetic testing Mark talked about for coeliac disease? I didn't think it was. I was referring to testing for gluten allergy, which doesn't show up in standard blood and endoscopy testing for coeliac disease, or skin prick testing. Coeliac disease is too widely used to refer to any kind of gluten allergy or intolerance so that people don't even know what allergy means. I said I do not have Coeliac disease. I have had that confirmed. I do however have a debilitating gluten allergy.
  3. Airborne Gluten...

    Whenever I go to social functions involving food I suffer for days afterwards... Because I was in the vicinity of gluten. I have found that being in places with good ventilation can be ok. I was at a dinner function in a hotel with really high ceilings and I didn't react. On another occasion, someone next to me ate a cracker biscuit and I lost my speech and couldn't walk. It is real, not imagined, for me. I cannot go into a supermarket without reacting, or drive the car if my husband has eaten bread in it in the last day or so. I get numbness, weakness, brain fog, memory problems, what I call sensory overload, speech difficulty, dizziness, co-ordination problems. I am not coeliac and standard testing does not identify this kind of allergy, so the tests have not revealed it. The allergy specialist told me to expect them not to show anything. She thinks my reaction is anaphylactic in that it sounds like immediate drop in blood pressure. I also get nausea and blotchy itchy skin, pins and needles and tingling. I had leg throbbing and neck itching and facial numbness, difficulty speaking after driving my husband's car to later discover that there were wheat coated peanuts in the driver's door, open. I do not have nut allergies.
  4. Airborne Gluten...

    I have airborne gluten allergy but not coeliac disease. I cannot be in the same room as gluten without reacting. If I walk through a school hall mid-morning when staff in the kitchen next to it are making the dinners, I have a reaction. It is not psychological as some would say. I have too many confirmations of it for that to be so. Please can you tell me what this genetic testing is? I'd like medical proof so that my GP will believe me and write a report for my boss at work. I am beginning to appear like I am avoiding meetings. (Where food is present).
