Read up on gluten sensitivity... on of the primary ways gluten affects people with the sensitivity is by triggering an auto-immune (against one's own tissues) reaction against nerves and brain... so, now ask yourself, if gluten can trigger your own immune system to attack YOUR OWN nerves and BRAIN tissues due to misidentification by the antibodies, between the proteins in your own brain tissues, and gluten proteins... would that be considered 'STRESS' in the BRAIN? An intangible attack on one's own brain tissues by one's own antibodies -- how's that NOT stress? The cross-reactivity that gluten sensitivity can be triggered by other things which contain no gluten as well. Google gluten cross-reactive foods. Coffee is one, dairy, eggs, soy, rice, corn. It's because the immune system doesn't check the entire protein. So it can misidentify other proteins as invaders as long as enough of the protein is similar. A gluten sensitive person's auto-immune reaction can be triggered by other proteins which are similar.

So, if something is attaching your brain/nerves/tissues, how does it NOT make sense that there could be some visceral intangible 'anguish' / stress that would cause one to be tense, and grind ones teeth?  Bruxism.

but someone may find this the same way i did...  a top google search result when searching for "gluten sensitivity  bruxism".

old knowledge mixes will with new knowledge when it come to clarifying understanding...

here's some - cross-reactivity is a myth  :)  meaning, there is no science to support this theory.

I did not say the information was worthless.  This is why the thread is still live.  I told you that you may not get responses from this thread and you may start a new one if you please.  There is an FAQ section that might interest you and help you navigate the site.

ah yes,that googling thing can be a crap shoot when diagnosing oneself with health issues.  

 

We tend to look at valid sources of information like the University of Chicago Celiac center

 

We aren’t familiar with any foods that show evidence of cross-reactivity.

careful, Google isn't the source... but googling did land me on this page... does that invalidate the site?

by the way, you're not citing a study, or a source. You are literally citing their statement of nescience. They are unaware. I. e. they do not know about it. Which is worlds different from having actually scientifically studied it first hand and made biochemical observations which disprove cross reactivity....

they are admitting that they are unaware, and haven't stated any intention of studying it.

no, but not everything on here is "solid gold info" either. People post a lot of opinions...that does not make it "factual "

 "we are unaware of"  is  a polite way of saying "it's unproven".

 

Take a stroll through PubMed...there's no evidence there. Believe me, I've looked.

 

If any celiac researchers thought this was a hazard to celiacs, they'd publish the information and tell us to stop eating those foods.

Well... You are just trying to be contrary but I will give an answer for others that might want to know - we cite the Univ of Chicago Celiac center because they have the easiest site to link to. They answer questions in an easy to understand manner. They are celiac researchers and have many published studies. They work with other researchers throughout the world. They hosted the International Celiac Disease Symposium this past Sept with researchers from around the world. I went. Several researchers said there is no evidence of Cross- reactivity.

Sometimes, there is no published study to say something doesn't exist because, really? Why would you need to disprove everything someone questioned? How do you disprove something that makes no sense? I have never met you in person. How do I prove that? It would be up to you to prove you have actually met me.

If you would like to discuss the theory of cross- reactivity, please start a new thread as that is not the topic of this old dormant thread. Please be prepared to show some actual scientific proof of your theory to discuss.

    • Formal dinner suggestions
      You could take shrimp cocktail -- just ice it & no need for heating that then. How about following up with some coconut crusted fish with some nice veggies on the side? That could just be nuked to reheat & only takes a minute or two. Make sure when they put it in the microwave that it is covered in case there is gluten lurking on the ceiling of the microwave that can fall down into his food.
    • Formal dinner suggestions
      Hi people. I'd just like some ideas for what I can take for V to a formal family dinner. Unfortunately the restaurant has stated there is no gluten-free safe option so I have to take his meal and dessert.  I can make him gluten-free chocolate cake so thats fine.  But its a three course dinner, and I need to transport it there. Hopefully they will be happy to heat it if needed.  Something really nice and special would be good because everyone else will be eating really  nice meals.  
    • Italian pasta
      Get some celiac travel cards to print off and keep in your wallet.  Present them to your waiter.   http://www.celiactravel.com/cards/ Tell the airline that you need a gluten free meal, BUT take food with you because odds are the airlines will make a mistake.   As far as the wheat pasta.....some folks say the wheat is different.  I personally think they are kidding themselves.  There is no scientific proof that I have found to support this theory.  (Anyone want to present such data?)  Italy, from what I heard is great for celiacs.  I'll know for sure this summer!  I'll be there!   As usual, we plan on bringing some packable food, but we are good at shopping at grocery stores for food and picnicking when traveling.  I expect foods at grocery stores to be clearly marked as they were in Great Britain since they are part of the EU.  
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      It looks like you have a few options that you need to consider pursuing: 1.  Get back to your doctor and tell him to figure out what's wrong with you.  Take a friend because it helps to have someone listen and take notes who is not the patient.  Get copies of all lab reports and doctor notes always and keep a file on yourself to share with future doctors or to monitor your progress.   2.  Ditch this GI and get a new one (SIBO is real per my celiac savvy GI).  Take a friend with you.   3.  You say you are lactose intolerant.  Experiment by going lactose free for six months -- not just a few days.  This will help to promote healing and help determine if milk (lactose or proteins) are causing villi damage and not gluten. 4.  Recognize that some celiacs test NEGATIVE to antibodies.  Per Dr. A. Fasano and Dr. Murrary, based on their clinincal experience and recent data just published, they estimate that 10 to 20 percent of celiac disease patients test negative to the serology screening test. That means consider yourself a celiac and stop your gluten intake for at least six months.  Normal vitamin and mineral levels do not rule out celiac disease.   5.  Recognize that you can multiple reasons for villi damage.  That's why a second consult with a celiac savvy GI is important.   Good luck!    
    • Continued Symptoms
      Try keeping a food and symptom diary.   She could have allergies or intolerances.  But, again, I am not a doctor!  I am healed from celiac disease, but I still react to certain foods and have allergies.  Those will probably never go away as I have been plagued with them all my life (as my siblings have too).  She could have a milk protein intolerance and not just lactose.  Eliminate all dairy too see if it helps.   Speech really normalizes by the age of 8.  I can not say if your public school will evaluate her.  My home-schooled friends are still monitored by the state and receive state funding.  So, I would assume they would receive all the same benefits.  Try calling.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
