I was recently diagnosed with celiac. A month into the gluten free diet it seems I developed multiple true food allergies (dairy, nuts, avocado etc etc). Still waiting for test results to confirm exactly how many foods I am allergic to but I have all the symptoms including hives, itchy mouth and throat swelling, feeling lighheaded etc.

I have removed a lot of foods from my diet but my question is how common it is to develop actual allergies and does it go away once healing your gut? I was expecting food intolerances but I have never had allergies in my life. It's the icing on top of the gluten-free cake!

I developed an allergy to tomatos after going gluten free. I used to love tomato sauce though. After the diet change my body started to react to them (head, neck, and shoulders would feel like they were on fire). I went to an allergist and he did the skin test, and indeed, a massive hive showed up on that one. Without a doubt, i am allergic to them.

 

Before this, I had no food allergies.

I haven't developed any new food allergies, but got a new allergy anyway. I guess I decided to be allergic to penicillin last summer. I can not begin to describe the joys of that. I believe I am also developing some chemical allergies as sometimes around certain types of colognes and perfumes (I haven't identified which, but certain people for sure) I find I begin to have trouble breathing and find myself gasping for air. I also can no longer shop in candle aisles, or cleaning aisles of stores without holding my breath or I risk the same reaction. I hold out hope every day that this continues to not apply to foods.

I've had a milder version of that (bad headaches, sore/dry throat, dizzyness) long before my diet change. Not fun at all.

This has happened to me.  It makes it hard to figure out if I have been glutened or if it's one of my problem foods b/c the reactions are similar digestive wise.  Like Shadow, I can't tolerate tomatoes or any type of tomato sauce.  I can have a little ketchup but that is all.  I use to drink milk daily and now that gives me major issues and migraines.  I also am very intolerant of any grain.  Right now, I am grain free but the corn keeps sneaking in.  Corn is in everything.

Adalaide, what do you use to clean your bathrooms with?  I am becoming more and more sensitive to chemicals.

From reading forums and blogs I expected certain foods (dairy, grains etc) to be problematic and give me gastro symptoms however I did not expect throat swelling and carrying an epi pen around! So frustrating :(

Lucky, I can't even do that. Of the two (gluten or tomatoes), I miss the tomatoes.

 

White vinegar is a very good cleaner. Do a part and part water with it and have at it.

There are a lot of natural cleaners, you can generally find one that suits your preferences online with a little poking around. I haven't started having a problem yet with my scrubbing bubbles so I am still using them so far. Keeping my fingers crossed that it holds out as long as possible.

Method has some more natural like cleaners.  Their website says that they are gluten free and safe for celiacs.

You know, one of the best cleaners is often overlooked. Dishwashing liquid and water. Cuts grease, doesn't stink, and it's cheap and easy to use. I put about a quarter inch into a spray bottle, fill it with water, and spray away. On some surfaces you will want to rinse using another spray bottle with plain water, but on kitchen counters and the like you don't even really need to rinse. When I was working in restaurants that was what we used at the end of the night to clean all surfaces.

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

I was just yesterday reading about a woman who uses only baking soda and white vinegar for cleaning, even for personal care like teeth and shampoo/conditioner. :huh:

Both are very good cleaners. Baking soda is a good alternative for tooth pastes. Apple cider vineger is a good hair wash.

If your throat swells you need to get a prescription for an epi pen from your doc

As for cleaning I found when I had an all tile bathroo, we are talking walls and floor with a drain in the middle, tide free powder was awesome for cleaning, used it in the toilet as well, wet everything sprinkle it on scrub and rinse, was so much better than any other cleaners

I become  allergic to all sorts of things after going gluten-free.

Spices

Eggs

Tomatoes

Herbal Tea

Celery

Squash

All citrus

Pumpkin and Sunflower seeds

 

Intolerant to corn & quinoa & dairy & soya & caffeine (digestive symptoms only)

 

Asthmatic, hives, eyes swelling, ezcema. Its an upward struggle for me at the moment, i'm survivng on fruit and veg (i'm vegetarian!)

I'm hoping its not permanent, I did feel better for a while, but now i am starting to not digest any food at all, and i have stomach pain... not great, but we live in hope ;)
