This is about Super sensitivity and not just to gluten;

 

The hygienist used this line on me once.  She felt she could use her regular tooth polish on me as she uses it on everyone else.  No need to read ingredients, she doesn't know what is in it, but it was safe.  I reacted. Next time, I used pomace powder only and had no reaction.

 

I have skin reactivity too, so I went over ingredients in ultra-sound gel.  They did know what was in it, but not where everything was derived.  I still need to look up FDA Blue #1.  Also the ingredient listed was tea.  I have a problem with black tea, but no indication what kind of tea it was!?

 

I asked about the adhesives in strips to hold EKG wires in place.  They were clueless to what they had in there.  A celiac told me that I should be okay, because she didn't react.  But when I asked if she reacted to contact she said "no".  They assured me that I would be okay since they have had no complaints.  Hmm

 

In the end, I think I am having screening tests regardless- hoping that a little more bloating and reaction won't be a big deal.  I am hoping that skin contact won't be too much of a problem for a one time deal

 

For all who have a problem with corn:  I saw information on the internet about all of the names for corn and its products.  They included Dextrose and Glucose which are in IV solutions.  I heard there is IV fluid without it, but am unsure of its name.

 

I can't understand the" it is safe for you attitude."  I especially wonder about me, when I jump on board thinking that it can't be too bad.

I can't help but wonder if these are minor allergies rather than intolerences or celiac due to the skin reactivity.

 

To be fair, not everyone knows what is in the items that are used, especially things like the adhesive strips.

Yes, it may be allergies, however, my IgE level is minimal which the MD says means that I am not an allergenic person.

Life is difficult when you react to more things than the typical celiac.  You have to stick to what you know works for you.  You have to research ingredients before trying things.  You have to minimize risk as much as you can.  You have to not live in fear despite all that.  You have to try not to feel like you are crazy and overreacting.  When you get sick, you have to be patient until you feel better again.  You need to learn from the experience so that you don't repeat it.  It's not easy.  It is well worth the effort.
