A few funky topics in one :rolleyes:

 

I don't have my follow up visit until next month to discuss any further diagnosing considering I can't help to be gluten-free and feeling wonderful!  But now I'm starting to notice that when I have any bit of dairy besides eggs, I don't seem to have problems with eggs...  I get the severe sharp stomach pains and bloating.  Are my symptoms to other possible food allergies amplified because of a "cleaner diet" transition?  I've always ignored my gi symptoms in the past so I'm wondering if I've always been kind of lactose and just recently noticing or can other post gluten-free reactions to other things exacerbate once you go through process of elimination?  Now I'm nervous I really have to cut out dairy...

 

Last night I was using a massage chair and started getting hives... I have physical/exercise uticaria and was wondering if anyone had something like this and if it would all be linked somehow.  It's not been as bad since I've been off gluten but I still get them sometimes.  Like if I run on the treadmill or run outside I start getting welts in between my thighs, burning itching all over my body.  Or if I get a back massage and the person starts to do the "chopping" massage I get hives as well and if I wash my car with my garden hose the cold water pressure that hits my legs will give me horrible itching, burning, welts :( .

 

Is there any correlation with blood type and celiacs/gluten intolerance?  The "blood type" diet was part of a conversation my co-workers were having and what's interesting is that its suggested that people with blood type 0 should be on more of a "paleo" style diet considering it is the "ancient" blood type, the newer food groups like dairy, grains, etc are difficult for the body to process.  My blood type is 0 and was wondering if there are any celiacs that are as well.  I don't expect this but what some research is saying is that about 50% of type 0 are celiacs.

 

Hope you are all having a wonderful day :lol:

I'm not surw about your "research" on blood types.   Please share it.  Type 0 is the most common blood type, it might make sense that its the most common type among people with Celiac.

 

http://www.redcrossblood.org/learn-about-blood/blood-types

 

O positive is the most common blood type. Not all ethnic groups have the same mix of these blood types. Hispanic people, for example, have a relatively high number of O’s, while Asian people have a relatively high number of B’s. The mix of the different blood types in the U.S. population is:

 

 
Caucasians
African American

This is a link that goes over Dr. Peter J. Adamo's blood type philosophy...  I don't expect it to work for everyone or be followed but I thought it was interesting! :)  Was curious if anyone followed it and it makes sense that a majority of celiacs are type o because of how common the blood type is, I didn't know that! Its geared more towards weight loss but I feel that the layout it provides makes sense if in fact you have some of these food allergies that it suggests you to avoid. I thought it was neat how it lined up to the fact that I started noticing my trouble with dairy, certain grains and how I need to be active and love being active even though I have been suffering from fatigue. There's also information on other blood types.  http://www.dadamo.com/bloodtype_O.htm

So basically, there is no research about blood type and Celiac.  As I remember, this guy has no real medical evidence of most of the "info" in his book.  Its was just a fad diet book.

What? Another with the same symptoms I get while exercising? And with a name! Awesome, really.

I have tried many diets to help with my AI conditions, blood type included. I found the Arthritis protocol worked well for me as it eliminated all inflammatory foods - gluten, dairy, nightshades, soy, alcohol and it was very low carb, yes I am an O. I was impressed and moved onto the suggested SWAMI which is personalized, I guess, to me. Well, it brought back many of my symptoms and didn't work for me. I am dairy intolerant too and am having a hard time with it. Just tested cheese (mozarella) again today and my face is somewhat burning now (within 10 minutes of consuming). I would have to meet a A type to try both paleo and the blood type to get me fully convinced. My body is pretty sensitive and I can react pretty quickly to foods so on the blood type diet apples are shunned but I don't get a reaction when I eat them - figs are a superfood but I start burning within 10-15 minutes. I still suggest a food journal and elimination diet over anything else.

Yeah the hives with exercise is weird. My mom has it as well! And I agree on the process of elimination diet. I match that of what that diet says but I understand that it's not backed with medical research so it wouldn't apply to everyone. Sucks with the dairy issue because I love cheese on everything ;(

I am very familiar with all the heat/exercise related symptoms - for me this continued to get worse even after my celiac diagnosis -- an awful lot of reading and research led me to Histamine Intolerance (HIT) - you see, when we exercise our bodies produce histamine -- in a healthy body histamine is regulated by enzymes that are created in the mucosal lining of the small intestine -- those with celiac disease have damage to the small intestine -- so it makes it very difficult for some of us to regulate histamine. 

 

Limiting histamine containing and histamine inducing foods has helped me tremendously -- still researching as much as I can about "HIT" as it is not something US doctors are very well versed in.

 

As for the blood type diet -- I am familiar with the principles of this -- as far as I know there is no correlation between blood type and celiac disease -- I have O- and my kids/grands have different blood types.

As with any other allergy you could possibly eventually have an anaphylaxic reaction right? I mean how can you tell... I get scared sometimes since it gets triggered so differently.. I don't want to be in a Zumba class and collapse.. I notice when I do I turn bright red and feel like I'm on fire then ill have shortness of breath because of activity induced asthma :|.. Is it getting better for you now? I feel like the more I take time to realize all this the more I feel like my list of problems rise lol.. Is it from some brain fog lifting :P so I just checked out your list and it sounds a lot like me! Do you mainly eat whole foods? I looked at a hit food list and it makes gluten-free in addition to this more restricted. This is tough :( if it helped you with your heat intolerance/exercise reactions I really might have to try.

Yep - removing histimane foods has helped quite a bit. I can now be out in the sunshine as long as I don't push it. I can ride my bike or run as long as it is under 65F and walk up to low 70s - for me this is a huge improvement.

I am hopeful that I am finally healing my small intestine and will eventually get many of the foods I have removed back - just not anytime soon.

And yes I carry benedryl, inhaler and Epi pens when I excerise - well everywhere - but especially when I am exercising.

Just so you know...  Eggs are not dairy.  I have always gotten hives easily.  Not always a known cause.  Dairy does make me sick but I don't have celiac.

Trxlm, I relate to your point about the fog lifting and finally "seeing things". I has taken me two full years to get to a point where I see a food causing a reaction. I personally react to all inflammatory foods (except red meat and eggs) so the list is pretty extensive. I can have most things in moderation but find soy, peanuts, gluten and dairy (not so much butter) have to be kept out. I do find the more I eliminate and stick to a very restricted diet the better I feel and do. Tough lifestyle though while facing others because they think I am a whacko.

The burning, itchy rash mostly happens when I exercise outside in cooler weather.

Just realized that I didn't answer about whole foods -- I often forget my signature is so long perhaps it is not clear what I actually eat.

 

Meat, Fish, Almonds, Vegies that do not contain or induce histamine production -- limited fruits - mostly apples and pears -- occasional other fruits, but never citrus or bananas.

 

I use almond and coconut flour to make muffins and limit my oil to coconut with a touch of olive oil.

 

Life is much better now that I feel much better -- was very difficult to keep losing foods without much improvement -- now that I'm vertical it is easy to make lots of yummy things with my limited food list.

      Thank  you Flowerqueen and Cristiana for your replies. I'm actually feeling much better today. I got my appetite back yesterday lunchtime (a few hours after I typed the original post) and managed to keep in/hold down some chicken and lettuce!!! I also had a "fat" coffee (as I call it) before work with MCT Oil and butter (your probably going "yuk" right now but it's really nice...really haha) and started feeling a bit better after that. The nausea went away almost immediately after that although just the thought of having all that fat nearly made me sick but I just wanted to get back to normal asap. I usually have a lot of fat in my diet anyway which is normal for me so the coffee choice isn't unusual. Plus it was also the third day which was when I started feeling better after the first time. I didn't eat til lunchtime and I was good and hungry by then so I knew I was coming out of it. That nausea and trembling feeling is something I don't want ever again. I think after the workout and tearing down muscle tissue (which is a form of stress) and then not being able to hold the nutrients in for repair affected my nervous system. My theory only but to me it makes sense. Although Vitargo also comes in flavors I always get the Natural / Unflavored one so the barley is the only ingredient. As for there being something wrong with that particular batch, well, you be on to something there. Also I'm not knocking the product because as I said, I have used it before and it did exactly what it was supposed to do. But, I will never have it again. Cristiana, my last blood test revealed I had slight anaemia which really surprised me with the amount of red meat I've eaten during my life and the anxiety thing is also new as I'm usually a happy, positive person. Life is good but after this recent reaction I think it is an indirect cause of the glutening. I'm also surprised at how sensitive I've become to it and how quickly. Also what is DX? I also follow a FODMAP eating plan (I can give you more info if you haven't heard of it) which also eliminates certain foods. It's a plan directed mostly at IBS but is well worth looking into if you are suffering any gut health, digestion issues or any ailment you may have which you can't get to the bottom of. Broccoli was one of the foods which I have cut back on and I've eaten HUGE amounts of broccoli so it is a superfood for some but apparently not for others. (I even think I read somewhere it has MSG naturally in it) It's hard to find any bad articles on broccoli so this also really surprised me. It also answered a few other questions I had. Many, many thanks again to you both for your replies. It actually settled me just reading them. I'm glad I found these forums so I don't think i'll be a stranger around here for long.   Richard

      Okay, I get that you are not going to follow the advice from some stranger on the internet, but please read the links that I gave you.  Your doctor is not following the standard level of care.  I am dead serious.  I have Kaiser.  My own GP doesn't have a clue about celiac disease, but my Kaiser GI does.  Please, I urge you to get properly diagnosed.  All celiac testing requires you to be on a gluten diet.  If you go gluten free even for two weeks (it will take time to get the referral and appointment), it will mess up the tests.  Your GI will put you back on a gluten diet (called a gluten challenge) for 8 to 12 weeks.    Chances are (almost 100%) you will feel more miserable!  That will just delay your diagnosis.   Symptoms not bad you say?  I had pretty severe anemia, but no tummy issues.  Two months after my diagnosis, I fractured my back DOING NOTHING!  Yep, I have osteoporosis from undiagnosed celiac disease and I am an athlete!   Please take this seriously!    
    • Silent Celiac or Non-digestive symptoms
      Oh, you might learn how to tell if you had been glutened.  I just had anemia as my main symptom.  I did not have any tummy issues at all.  I was in shock when my doctor even suggested testing me for celiac disease!   Glutenings can vary as we are all different.  For some it is just a few days, others a few weeks and others months (that would be me).  My last official glutening as supported by follow-up antibody testing lasted for three months.  Guess what?  I had vomiting, abdominal pain, the works!  Funny how celiac disease can change and evolve over time.   Welcome to the forum!  Have some patience and learn all that you can.  The good news is that you can feel better and no medications are required!  
    • Confused
      Thank you for the information. I've been not sure if I should eat gluten or not right now. Dr. said I should watch what I eat when I emailed him the question. My symptoms aren't very bad (I understand that doesn't matter for celiac disease), so I can definitley tolerate the food. But I have been starving myself the last few days due to not knowing what the heck is going on. Thanks again.
    • Could this possibly be related to celiac or a gluten intolerance?
      If you did actually have celiac disease, it can take weeks, months and years to recover from some of your symptoms, especially neurological ones.   Best to get screened for celiac disease.  It's a simple blood test.  Any medical doctor can do it.  But a GI doctor is needed for a diagnosis, since an endoscopy is part of the diagnostic procedure.  BUT you have to be consuming gluten to get accurate results! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://gi.org/guideline/diagnosis-and-management-of-celiac-disease/ Keep on researching.  I wish you well!

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
