Many Allergies?! Celiac? Candida? Leaky Gut?
0

2 posts in this topic

My husband took gluten out of his diet in Jan. for 2 weeks he felt better than ever.ever since- for the past few months, the slightest amout of gluten can cause him issues for days. even cross contamination. Instant mood swings, cannot reason or think, brain fog, feels like he is floating, numb lips and tongue ( just by being in a bakery). stomach gurggling, head pounding- then feeling hungover and depressed the next day. Does this sound like Celiac or an allergy? Also- since going off gluten, he now reacts to tomatoes, cinnamon, dairy, shellfish, and eggs. some the same way ( with lips and tongue getting numb) and some just make him a little gassy. we cannot get tested for celiac since he has been off gluten for a while now. and he never wants to touch it again. it just seems like every week some new allergy is coming up. we already took out sugar, dyes, perservatives, gmos, msg, and  high fructose corn syrup along with all of those allergy foods mentioned. He takes pro biotics and digestive enzymes when he eats and is seeing a chiropractor 2x a week.. but the slightest thing can make him miserable for days. also- found out that our 4 kids have intolerance to gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, corn, citrus, and shellfish. Does this sound genetic or  like leaky gut or Candida??? I have no issues though..Help please

Sounds like celiac. Note that celiacs have leaky guts too.

 

Make sure that your house and all your ingredients are gluten free. Eg: the cinnamon you have may have traces of gluten from manufacturing or from your own house.

Eggs and shellfish sound like regular allergies, but try washing your eggs well before cracking, and washing hands well after touching the carton too.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
