Well, you have various approaches to this....

Does white wine bother you when you drink it? The reason that I am asking is that I have heard that there is a high percentage of false positives with allergy testing.

That being said, if you don't react, it would be up to you as to how you want to deal with it.

Was red wine tested? If you tested negative on that, and react to white wine, than maybe red wine would be safe. If it wasn't, I would do some google searches about white wine allergies and see what you come up with...maybe they have the answer about red wines.

What about things like zinfindels

Also, is it the sulfites that is the problem? Or the grapes? Or what? That might help in your thought process.

I unfortunately don't have any real answers, but I understand your pain! I am no longer drinking right now because I am reacting to everything under the sun. If I were you, and got the test results back, that would be the process that goes through my head. Hope this helps...let me know what you find out. xoxo

scratch tests for foods are only 50% accurate.

i cannot drink wine because of the sulphites and casein.

and the alcohol.

but otherwise, the aforementioned ingredients.

Natlay,

Wine inherently does not have casein in it. However, many wineries use casein in the processing. Many also use eggs. (I learned this recently as I am both casein and egg intolerant).

I'm not drinking at all at this point because 1. I haven't had the time to research wines that are safe. 2. I don't know if even "safe" wines are safe for me bc I don't know if I react to sulfites, and other fun things.

Hope this helps.

wow i didnt know about the casien thing iether, fortunatly i have a lactose problem so it wont bother me too much hopefully. i wasnt tested for red wine only white which was odd :blink: i dont think i have a problem when drinking white wine but the more you frink the less you care about if you do or not ( so to speak ). i often wonderd if there was a connection between the vinegers and white wines in the malting or whatever you wanna call it. just a thought :unsure:

If you buy any appellation controlled French wine or DOP Italian then the ingredients are strictly controlled.

An exception is Bordeaux who are pretty lax over the appellations ... then you need to decide if you are buying a quality wine or a cheap one.

Bourgoyne has probably the strictest appellations where several do not allow any yeast to be added and the process has to occur naturally from the fields and winery walls. Aloxe Corton and Clos des Mouches are two examples....

Cote de Rhone wise a hermitage or crozes hermtage are also strictly controlled as is Condrieu

Most if not all good wine (excepting champagnes) are unfiltered and you can pick off whole appellations confident that quality control and following the rules is the livelyhood of the whole appellation.

Try this in the google bar :D

appellation beaune "non filtre"

However the best thing is asking the producers themselves....I really would encourage ANYONE who likes wine to try one of these... they are outstanding value with wines from 4€ a bottle though to €400 ....though you can get exceptional wines starting at 6€ .....November is the BEST time, its the first of the 2005

Steve - you're talking Euro wines here - average consumer in US is drinking wines from California, if they're American-made. Most people walk into a grocery or liquor store and choose by - not kidding here - what the label looks like and by price - most people want a decent everyday wine for under $10. And, unless we are willing to pay much more per bottle - the wines/appellations are not so strictly controlled. I am always looking for a good cheap Burgundian-style California red, or S. American or Australian red....and because I didn't PAY for wine - usually - for four years (worked at a fantastic winery), I really hate paying for it now! :angry: Also remember that people are buying Charles Shaw ("two-buck Chuck") by the case here - $1.99 a bottle and extremely bad - the white is pure skunk pi**! Blech! The reds taste like - lighter fluid. Charles Shaw is cheap juice from bad grapes, sold and created by Franzia wines - - kind of an abomination but that's what most are drinking.

Reds usually don't bother me, but whites will give me a huge headache. Yeast can be a problem in wines also and almost all are fermented wtih yeast here. Very few CA wines are unfiltered - the unfiltered chardonnays we sold were $45 and $65 per bottle....and while we felt we had bottled the golden rays of heaven (I used to tell customers that Cuvee Audrey was in fact what was poured in heaven ;) ), few could afford it. In the winery where I worked, many yeasts were used and all were purchased from France - I never had a headache from our chardonnays.

I would try some lighter reds, Taz - pinot noirs (almost impossible, though, to find a good one for less than $20 and too bad as that's my fave!), red zinfandel (not always so light but not as heavy as cab/merlot) and syrahs. I'm goign to have to break down and go to Whole Foods to get some of my favorite - used to be my every-day wine at the winery - Kali-Hart Pinot Noir - - it's about $12 and was just so yummy - the best cheap pinot I've ever had - - really wonderful black cherry with just the lightest touch of barnyard/earthiness to it....

*sigh* too bad Whole Foods is so far away or I'd go there now.

edit: having written all of the above...it just occurred to me that Taz might be in...England? oops.....makes everything (almost!) kind of irrelevant.....!!

susan,

as a wine lover (and so sad that I might not be able to tolerate alcohol...my body is revolting against me at this point), I REALLY appreciate your post! I'll keep those in mind! Thanks for sharing.

Hope that the vegan wine list helps ...

Hi Laura....you know, I had completely forgotten about egg whites (powdered) being used as a filtering agent in wines! I am not casein/egg intolerant and so don't even think about that - very good about the vegan wine list. Can't even REMEMBER if Robert Talbott wines (where I worked - that's the Kali Hart Pinot, named for their youngest daughter and SO yummy!) uses egg whites in their filtering. You could call the winery itself in Gonzalez, CA...or email - heck maybe I"ll email them myself just to see what's going on. That is a bummer though and I hope you can enjoy wines again soon....I used to be a heavy consumer of wines :ph34r: and loved them so, now, just a glass here or there and that's much better in so many ways.

:)

Serves me right for buying the cheapest sweet white wine at my supermarket yesterday. <_< Luckily I only had less then half a glass but I had unmistakable casein symptoms today....the rest of the wine went down the drain btw...

I haven't bothered with calling producers about wine, most of the time if indeed I stick to not the cheapest ones it seems to be fine. And even when it isn't, the reaction only seems to last a day or so, so I'm thinking that the amount that I'm reacting to must be truly minuscule.

I don't usually like reds, at least in my usual price range :D but someone had given us a bottle of... let me check, I saved the bottle...it says 1999, Mas de l'Ocelle, ok so I know nothing about wine but I really liked that one.

I wonder, I often like verdejo wines, and verdicchio ones, are those the same sort of grape or is it a coincidence that the names are similar? :)

It's funny, I can have a few glasses of a "safe" wine and be fine, and less half a glass of one that apparently contains casein and have a "hangover" the day after... :P

    • You're welcome! Yes, I too, hate waiting for lab results. Ugh!
    • I understand this is not a doctor's office and that I need proper testing done to rule out Celiac disease, however, I am stuck waiting until November to even see a GI doctor. So I need some suggestions soon on which test to go for first and what to do as I wait. Also do note, I am 28 years old.

      Right now, the most suspecting culprits to my symptoms have been Gallbadder, Celiac disease, and IBS. I have also been recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes and I am obese.  My Ultrasound and CT scan have all come up as normal and no signs of gallstones. However, I was in extreme pain as my upper abdomen was examined during the ultra sound. My white blood cell count also seems to be high at 12,000 but all blood work came back normal for liver and everything else.

      Symptoms included are: diarrhea
      yellow-stools (Sometimes foul smelling but always sink)
      light gnawing pain in area a few inches above belly button
      burning in chest
      sometimes pain below upper right rib cage.
      Tenderness all around the upper abdomen, but more so on the right and center.
      burping frequently after meals
      Gassy
      bloating in abdomen The pains used to come and go for the past few years as something very mild, but then the yellow stools happen at least four months ago and at a constant rate. Everyday it is either yellow or orange.  Sometimes the stools are lose and other times they are not. Two months in, I was finally diagnosed with pre-diabetes and have been having a strict low calorie and non fatty diet.

      So far the upper right pain has subsided but the pain above my belly button would continue. The gassy and bloated feeling would come and go as well. I get severe heart burn after almost every meal. But I felt it especially after eating whole wheat sandwiches or whole wheat pasta. I however don't feel it when I eat a Nature Valley granola bar, or pack of peanut butter crackers. I also had a chicken and vegetable stir fry with soy sauce cooked in that also had little effect on me. A bowl of cereal also made the heart burn act up pretty bad. I sometimes feel numb or light headed after various meals. Especially larger ones. In fact, it seems the more I eat, the worse I feel. But the less in the stomach, the more the pain above my belly button starts to act up.

      It is usually in the morning and afternoon I feel the most with gas and bloating. Especially after any large meals from the previous day. Despite the diet and work outs I have had, nothing has changed the stools. However, taking fish oil pills has greatly reduced the pain in my upper abdomen as well as the pain  in the the area above my belly button. My question now is, is there a very likely chance of this being celiac disease? Should I go on a gluten free diet to test since I Have to wait so long? Also, which test should I ask the doctor for first, as it will take a GREAT deal of time to pay off each one. Colonoscopy, HIDA scan, or endoscopy. 

      Again, I understand this isn't a site to get compete medical advice or to know exactly what my illness is, but I am trying to narrow down the possibility or what is most likely. If this has a chance of being celiac disease, I would rather know sooner than later.
    • Thank you very much for all the info Squirmingitch. The doctor told me as we were talking he was going to order some tests with urine so I don't know why he didn't mark that. Maybe he forgot as we were talking? Duly noted about the bladder Cancer to watch out for too. Doctor said it will take about a week to get the lab results back usually from this lab. The wait will seem like forever I'm sure. Yes I will press to have the other tests done too if this one comes back negative.
    • http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Was your hubs tested for total IgA to see if he's IgA deficient? Read this thread: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/83660
    • Yes, bone density problems are all part of the celiac "umbrella" so to speak and yes, osteoporosis tends to happen more rapidly and at earlier ages than normal when malabsorption is happening. At age 43, it's not normal to have osteoporosis as you describe so that's another part of the jigsaw puzzle. Time to receive blood test results back from the doc are entirely dependent on the particular lab they were sent to. Yep, it's time for you to start keeping a very close check on the PSA in light of your father having had prostrate cancer. I would think you should get a PSA every year. I really would have liked to see him do a urinalysis. With the prostrate cancer your father had, it would seem a close watch should be kept on you for bladder cancer as well. The first symptom of that is blood in the urine but it's generally microscopic before you're ever able to actually see it. That happens to be the 8th most common cancer in men & it's moving up in the rankings. I know this because my hubs had it. The good news is that it's also one of the easiest and most successfully treated provided it's caught early. Certainly starting @ age 50, men should see a urologist every year. BTW, in the last year before I found out I was celiac, I turned up with microscopic blood in my urine. I got it checked out thoroughly since I know about bladder cancer & all tests, ultrasounds, cystoscopy, CT scan etc... turned out fine. The docs were stumped & finally said, "apparently that's just what your body does". Guess what? That's not "just" what MY body does. Once I went gluten-free, I have had no more microscopic blood in my urine. Interesting eh? Before now I didn't realize you are in Canada. The doc didn't do the full celiac panel but I understand the initial screening protocols in Canada only order the TTG but if that comes back negative be sure & press for the full panel as cyclinglady said. We have several here who tested like cyclinglady so it's not a rare thing, it's just not the norm. I'm glad he's doing the B-12 & Ferritin -- those can be big clues.
