Gluten Free And Still Got Symptoms !
0

4 posts in this topic

I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right forum ( MODS please feel free to move it)

.

This is a topic I started on the Irish Coeliac Society's Message Board some time ago.

.

This may have been discussed and checked into years ago, I'm not sure as I'm only

posting on this Site for the last few months!

.

If this Topic has been covered before apologies.

.

I have read so many posts by people that have stuck rigidly to the diet and still have

issues so this item maybe something to consider ??.

.

.

People, who are sticking to a gluten-free diet and still suffering some or all of the symptoms, should maybe take a look at food additives in processed and canned products.

.

We all know that modified starch could mean anything if it is not specified.

Some times products use E numbers instead. (E1400 - E1450 should be avoided

I was interested to read your comments about food additives. I was researching non-allergic, non-bacterial chronic rhinitis (which I have along with celiac) and found an article by Prof. Maria Luisa Pacor, MD (Italy) with an abstract about chronic rhinitis stating that food additives (as those you mentioned)"can be considered triggers or aggravating factors, rather than aetiological factors". I also found information about a chemical rhinitis that is aggravated by "biogenic amines, benzoic acids (food additives), and tyramine (found in aged cheeses, etc.) Eliminating these seems to help me but I still have symptoms.

Thanks for posting this, it may be useful for some of us that are still having issues. It should be noted that the E Numbers are used in Europe but not in the US. In the US most of these items would need to be listed by name on the label.

Thanks for your comments. Re E numbers: I found a list at www.naturallyhealthylifestyles.com. It is helpful because it lists the E Number, the name, foods it is used in, and side effects in an easy to read chart. Or, one could just Google it and see what they come up with. I found several sites.

    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
    • Hi Morna.  I will have to add Tom and Chee's to my list.  I have found so many new restaurants on this forum.  My family's birthday season is coming up (I swear, everyone was born between September-December), so I am going to have to check out the bakery on Campbell Station.  Sneak in some gluten-free cake and goodies and see if anyone notices.  I miss cake.
