Sesame Allergy
0

4 posts in this topic

I posted about a week ago that I had an exercise induced anaphalaxis reaction while jogging and had to be rushed to the ER.  I had allergy testing done on Monday and while they found I was allergic to a lot of molds, trees, weeds, and grasses which I knew already and knew they gave me asthma and not an anaphalaxis reaction.  I also found out I am highly allergic to sesame and the sesame oil in my food that night caused the reaction I had.  So, I was out of town yesterday for a funeral and I haven't had any time to look into eating sesame free yet and my daughter gave me a handful of trail mix.  I took a handful and my tongue swelled up, my mouth itched, and I had hives on my arm.  Read the back and yep, sesame seeds.  So, it looks like I will be doing some research today to get a sesame free list.  I know that celiac will not show up on a skin test because it's an auto immune response, but wheat also showed up as an allergy.  The allergist wondered if my being allergic to pretty much all types of grasses made my body react to wheat the way it does.  I thought it was interesting as someone who isn't diagnosed celiac to look at wheat as just another type of grass my body is reacting to.

I have a friend that is severly allergic (with anaphalaxsis).  It is a tricky one.  There is sesame in a lot of surprising places.  Makes restaurants hard.  Good luck!

First of all, I'm really pleased that your reaction last week was not anaphylaxis, although asthma is quite horrid.  I am a little concerned about your reaction to the sesame seeds yesterday though and think perhaps you should get that investigated as next time your symptoms could be worse.  - Sorry, I don't want to alarm you, and I hope I'm wrong.  Perhaps someone else reading this could give you more advice? Please be careful and good luck with it all and let us all know how you get on. :unsure:

You can be both allergic to wheat and have celiac at the same time :)

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
