Celiac And Wheat Allergy
0

5 posts in this topic

I was DX Celiac 3 years ago this past week. Shortly after DX, I was food allergy tested. The Dr told me I would not be positive for wheat because Celiac is auto immune etc. However, she was surprised when I reacted to wheat and barely. (skin test) I haven't thought to much about it because I must be gluten-free anyway. I've had good and bad days trying to feel better. I work at a school and am around gluten a lot! I try to do  my best at avoiding it.

 

Sometimes I notice if I am in the same room with someone else cooking gluten I start to cramp up. I just thought I was crazy until today.You know, it's all in my head thing. I was alone all weekend with no gluten in sight and I felt human! Today I picked my daughter up from her friends and she hugged me a lot. About 15 minutes later, I'm cramping and bloating. Now, call me crazy, I asked her what she had eaten. She said pancakes, am I crazy? They had made pancakes from a mix. Has anyone heard of this. I didn't want to write this, because I didn't want people to think I've totally lost it.

My daughter said she will go gluten-free all summer to see if this is truly an issue for me.

 

Has this happened to anyone else or am I crazy?

C Kip! I am so happy to see you! ;)

 

Want my opinion--from my "gut"? sure, why wouldn't you have a reaction of some kind?

if you are still having "good and bad days" 3 years later? SOMETHING is causing you grief.

 

Celiacs can also have a wheat allergy (and I say this often) and it is entirely possible that just being around wheat flour ( or people consuming it ) is giving you continuing symptoms.

 

If your daughter is willing to go gluten-free to see if you feel better, well, kudos to her..... and frankly, she may benefit as well as I am a huge believer in the hereditary aspect of this disease--no matter what the celiac test results say/

 

It is always great to "see you" either here or on GD site. Take care, dear girl!!

I do have typical wheat allergy symptoms at times... last time I tried a gluten challenge, my lips, eyes, and face puffed up, and my heart raced. Classic allergy stuff...

 

But whenever I get glutened, my guts ALSO go freakin' bonkers. Classic intolerance.

 

So is it allergy or intolerance? My GI gave up trying to decide and just went with common sense: DON'T... EAT... WHEAT...

I was just tested for Wheat allergy and I should have my results in two weeks. I accidently ingested wheat and my eyes became swollen and I broke out in hives. My doctor said that it probably wasn't wheat, but maybe my makeup. I've been using the same makeup for years and it happens to be gluten-free. I don't know what else it could have been. We will see in a few weeks what is causing this reaction. It was pretty scary and hoping it doesn't happen again. I have never once had an issue, but once I went gluten-free I have become super sensitive to a lot of different things. I'm so nervous, I don't even want to eat :(

    • Are M&Ms Gluten Free?
      Hi. Thanks for the reply. I read "wheat" on the packaging of the regular / plain M&Ms package. Not on the mini's package. I've never seen a package of mini-M&Ms. I've only seen them as ice cream toppings. I'll buy a pack and photograph what I read. Maybe this would be helpful? Thanks again, Olivia 
    • how long does it take to show signs of being glutened?
      My two year old son has been diagnosed with celiac for almost three months. So far, I think we have done well keeping him completely gluten free. Our biggest worry is cross contamination because he is so young and constantly putting his hands in his mouth. My question is, how long does it take to show signs that he was glutened? He complained of a stomachache yesterday before bed (I wasn't sure at the time if it was just a bedtime stalling technique) and also had two very messy diapers today. I've been racking my brain trying to figure out if he could have gotten glutened somehow, or maybe it's just a normal stomach issue for any kid. It would help if I knew the average time it took for symptoms to show up after someone has been glutened. Thanks!
    • Did Jennifer Esposito Leave Town Amid $43 Million Gluten-Free Bakery Lawsuit?
      Wasn't this some gossip rag nonsense from a few weeks back?  I think it's been proven false.  But, even so, why is celebrity gossip from unreliable sources here?  And I can't leave a comment on the actual article, because he approves and often edits the comment.
    • Recovery?
      Hi PLB, If he hasn't been gluten-free very long, he might still be able to get blood testing done for the gliaden (gluten) antibodies.  More than a couple weeks may be too long tho. As far as recovery, it varies from person to person.  The condition associated with celiac that you are thinking of is probably gluten ataxia.  Gluten ataxia is an antibody attack on the brain cells that can cause problems walking and controlling muscles.  Generally it seems people consider nervous system healing / recovery to be a fairly slow process.  Although it sounds like your husband is experiencing some recovery already, which is great! I've read about coconut having benefits for people with alzhiemers disease, but don't know if it would help him.  I doubt it would hurt though.  The B-vitamins including B-12 are supposed to be very important for nervous system health.  Vitamin d is also important but make sure you take a supplement that is tested and reliable.  Check out https://labdoor.com/  for their review/test results.  Dr. Hadjivassiliou has done some research on gluten ataxia and you might find reading his information helpful. Nuerological symptoms without gastro symptoms
      http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20170845 Dietary treatment of gluten ataxia
      http://jnnp.bmj.com/content/74/9/1221.full Ubo's, Epilepsy And Celiac Testing for celiac disease usually starts with a blood antibody test and then a endoscopy to check for gut damage.  If a person has been off gluten for a while though, the tests are not much use.  The antibodies in the bloodstream start to drop off and may not be detectable anymore.  They usually say to eat gluten for around 12 weeks in that case before trying testing again.  I can understand why he wouldn't want to do that though considering his symptoms.  I am not sure it would be a good idea. Welcome to the forum and congrats on finding  away to improve his condition! If you turn on the notify me of replies slide button near the bottom left of the reply screen you can get an email when you receive responses to your thread. There is some helpful info in this thread about celiac disease.             
    • Genetic Results
      I have been looking for an explanation to what exactly I have, as my doctor just said that I have the genes that cause Celiac. They never went any further than that.... The wikipedia link makes some sense, but at the same time it does not. It almost seems like I have 1 full DQ2, and half of a DQ2?   Test: DQ Alpha 1 - 02:01,03 Test : DQ Beta 1 - 02:02,03:02 DQ Serologic Equivalent: 2,8 Method: Molecular typing of HLA antigens performed using reverse SSOP and/or SSP methods, reported as serological equivalents and low to medium resolution molecular values

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
      Larry
