I Can't Tell You What Is In This, But It Is Safe For You!

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.

    • That uncle bens 10minute brown rice with the gluten free table on the box, i been going through hell these last few days, this shit is Not gluten free its contaminated 
    • Mnoosh,    Can you give us a link to the article you read about the increased risk after being diagnosed and maintaining a strict gluten-free diet??       IMO,   You are over reacting to a misprint or most likely a misread article.
    • Yes!  With dairy, celiacs can often have a temorary lactose intolerance due to damaged intestinal villi (where the enzymes normally are released to digest lactose).  Of course you could be naturally lactose intolerant based on race or age.  It is best to stick to a whole foods diet while you are healing.  Really, is ice cream or potato chips going to provide you with nutritional value?  Stick with naturally gluten free foods like meat, fish, fats,  veggies (even those with carbs like sweet potatoes or winter squash) and fruit.  Avoid that processed junk as you may react to the additives right now.  Later, you can add back in dairy (test) and other foods you miss and crave.   Good luck!  
    • Take a deep breath and calm down!    The incidence of cancer with Celiac Disease is rare.......it can happen but the vast majority of people never have that experience.  You may have somewhat enlarged lymph nodes due to inflammation from undiagnosed Celiac but that will all calm down and go away once you get going on the diet.  Believe me, there are many of us that have things happen during the diagnosis and early recovery period and everything turned out just fine.  There is an elevated risk for some cancers with Celiac but that risk goes back to that of the general population after a couple of years on the gluten-free diet. I cannot remember the exact time frame but it is somewhere between 2-4 years, I think.  So many of us went years without a diagnosis and when it was all figured out, we have gone on to be healthy with little complications.  Really...do  not worry about this.  Concentrate on learning all the ins and outs of this disease and how to live gluten free happily.  We are here to help you and guess what? The diet is not as bad as some make it out to be. Many things can be made gluten free and are every bit as good as their gluten counterparts. The diet may not be convenient but it is not hard. I would not lie to you!   
    • Well....one common symptom that most celiacs have when they are diagnosed (or undiagnosed) is anxiety.  So, there is a risk of cancers, but science has demonstrated that that risk goes down on a gluten free diet (if you have celiac disease).  In goes down to the same risk as those without celiac disease.   I kind of was a basket case.  I drive my family a bit crazy because I was anxious.  I felt a bit stupid too.  I guess I had a little brain fog going on too.  All that resolved after I healed. Welcome to the fourum.  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" (pinned at the top of the page) and learn about hidden sources of gluten and cross contamination.  I think most of us do not worry about cancer. We mourn the freedom to eat anything anywhere!   I did not have swollen lymph nodes, but I am sure others have and they did not have cancer.  Hopefully, they will chime in and set your mind at ease.  If not, you can search for "lymph nodes" at the top of the page (little magnifying glass).  There are lots of members with the same issue!
