Developing New Allergies
0

10 posts in this topic

Now all of a sudden this past year I became allergic to: Hair color products, bee and wasp stings, a variety of anti-biotics (tetras in particular) and now nutmeg and red dye food coloring. I was diagnosed (blood work) in November with Celiac, I have the DQ2 gene and the biopsy came back with the diagnosis of Celiac.

Has this happened to anyone else? Developing new allergies?

Does anyone know of a really good bread machine bread mix? I bought Bob's Red Mill to try it. I am not impressed with the freezer bread at all.

Your right, the freezer and other prepared breads suck!! I used a bread maker and found a few good mixes. I can't remember them now because I had to stop eating them. I can't digest any grains but rice right now. I found them in local stores though. They were good. It's worth buying the bread maker for sure.

Allergies, well, I had some before gluten, like soy, tomatoes, some lugumes, (round beans), some antiboitics and clams. Now, I of course can't eat gluten, but recently can not eat other grains, but don't actually show an allergy to them. It is just that they are hard on the digestive system right now. My allergist says I can try those again later. The new allergies are to peanuts, green beans, peas (the rest of the lugume family.) I'm sure I am forgeting something! LOL! I think while our immune system has been comprimised, we are more seseptable to other allergies. Perhaps in time, when your system is healed, things will be better.

Something tells me not to get stung by a bee or wasp. I have an intuition that it could be deadly! I avoid them for that reason! OMG, I hope I don't get it to Hair Color. I really don't want to show all of my white hair yet!!! Hang in there, we know what it's like!

I developed my seasonal and animal allergies as a teenager. We had cats in the house when I was a young child and had no problems but by the time I was a teenager we had to get rid of them I was so allergic. That's also around the time I started to have my stomach issues. I am pretty sure the two were related. I haven't yet seen my allergies get better though. I still have hope. I'm only 5 months into the gluten free diet.

Did your new allergies appear after you stopped eating gluten?

I'm not sure why but it seems to be quite common for this to happen. When I stopped eating gluten, suddenly I became intolerant to dairy - but now I am eating gluten again in advance of my biopsy (ugh!) I am not bothered by milk any more. The symptoms in response to dairy are quite different than from gluten, so I can tell. It's all quite peculiar.

I'm sorry you have to eat the gluten right now. I chose not to and the biopsy came back negative after being gluten free for over 2 months. But I had the gene test because of that. I don't have a problem with dairy, at least not yet, but the other intorerances, I noticed after being gluten free, but what I think is that I felt so sick before that I may not have realized that more than gluten was bothering me. I became more alert to things I ate and how I felt once I went gluten free. I do feel they are all related, at least in the food things. When you have upper or lower intestinal problems caused by the gluten, it causes other types of proteins unable to be broken down. My allergist says everything is connected somehow.

I hope you don't get to sick eating the gluten and I do wonder why you can do the dairy now, that is odd. I guess we need to be sceintists to figure it all out.

I'm with you on the increasing allergies. 4 years ago, I got sick with what I think was the beginning of the Celiac. Blood tests at that time showed milk and egg and environmental allergies. None of which I ever thought I had. Fast forward to 4 months ago and my positive endoscopy. Now, I find I'm reacting to bananas, shea butter, and latex. There is at least one other thing in my diet causing grief. I'm totally/freakishly gluten-free, and am still having symptoms some days. 2 years ago, a bee stung me and I got a 6 inch itchy/painful welt. The doc said don't worry, but I'll be sucking down a benadryl if I ever get stung again. I hope you find good ways of managing the allergies and we all avoid getting more.

With that kind of reaction to a bee sting, I'd worry about the next time too. A nurse told me (when my husband was in the hospital and they were asking allergy questions) that until something is introduced to the body at least once, you won't have a reaction until the antibodies are produced. It takes the second or third time before it is severe. So I'd say your bee sting reaction is leading to the possibility of a worse reaction. That reminds me, I want to have benadryl on hand too.

I am sure that there is a definite causal link between allergies and Leaky Gut. The more damage there is to the gut, the more allergic the responses.

I thought that the fact you said that you have become allergic to antibiotics quite pointed. Anyone who reads my posts will be familiar with the fact that I am convinced that a lot of our health issues actually stem from antibiotic over-use.

Because they kill the good guys as well as the bad, they leave the gut unprotected, allowing pathogens to move in and set up home in places they shouldn't normally be.

Kill the soldiers, and the city is unprotected. The good guys are there to fight the pathogens, support the immune system and to keep us healthy in a symbiotic partnership. Drugs like antibiotics upset that fragile balance and we end up in a state of dysbiosis, which leads to many and varied health problems and a toxic pathogen-friendly body. A weakened immune system then leaves us vulnerable to further infections and inflammation, for which a trip to the doc for yet another course of antibiotics deepens the issue and compounds the cycle of damage.

The whole situation is further compounded by the food we eat - many of us with gut damage do not digest food properly, particularly sugars and carbs that feed the pathogens. Even gluten-free foods can often make things worse rather than better, because they are typically VERY high in carbohydrates, which is more than likely why so many don't get better on a gluten-free diet, may recover briefly until the microbes find a new food source (which is when we suddenly find ourselves developing an intolerance to yet another food, like corn, or soy), or only find that certain health issues improve but not others.

I, and quite a few others on the forum are following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), which is designed to help the gut, and the body, heal properly. It removes anything processed or 'chemicalised', all di- and poly-saccharide carbohydrates like sugar, grains and starches and certain dairy products that contribute to the damage cycle, and concentrates on good wholesome (and preferably organic) meat, fish, poultry, fruit, veg, nuts, honey and home-made long-cultured probiotic yogurt for gut 'reflorestation'. There is a thread on the 'Other Food Intolerances' section where we encourage and support each other on the diet, and a recipe thread in the 'Recipes' section.

I would recommend anyone who is not getting better just on gluten-free alone, or who is developing further intolerances or allergies to give the diet a try. It is not a weight-loss diet - it is a healing diet.

No, they appeared within the past couple of years and I am in my late fifties. I could not tolerate dairy but now I have no issues with that. It just seems like everybody is different in their reactions to all this.

My doctor told me that the more you get stung, the less your body disposes of the toxins and you can have a really bad reaction to the poison in the "sting". So now I keep benadryl handy at all times.

    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      I wouldn't be afraid to use a stainless steel pot that other things had been cooked in AS LONG AS YOU WASH THEM VERY WELL before making her food.
    • to biopsy or not?
      You are MOST welcome! No problem with making these recipes. If you just follow the directions they lay out, you will be absolutely fine! BTW, I chose to make everything using the flour blend they give you the recipe for. It really is better than the pre-made flours you can buy. To make things easier, I make a double batch of the flour blend and put it in a BIG tupperware (plastic) container & keep in the fridge. That way when I go to make anything I just scoop out the amount I need. Secondly, get yourself a cheap little kitchen scale. I got this one & it works great. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007TCFE0I?psc=1 Mine doesn't have the removable glass or the kitchen timer but otherwise is just like this one. This one is more like the one I got http://www.amazon.com/Ozeri-Digital-Kitchen-Capacity-Elegant/dp/B002IR6OP8 Weighing out your ingredients makes a huge difference & really it's so much easier than measuring everything in measuring cups. As far as the coffee cake recipe..... I changed it a little bit so it would be like a gluten coffee cake I used to make & we loved. It turns out a little more healthy as well with dried fruit I put in it. I didn't make the topping that they do. These are the changes I made. In the batter, instead of the 1 Tblsp. of cinnamon I used 1 teaspoon. In the batter, I added dried apricots & raisins --- I do it by feel so I will say about 1/2 cup of each maybe a tad more.  My Topping: Then in a separate bowl I put about 1.5 teaspoons of cinnamon, about 3/4 cup of dark brown sugar, and some melted butter. Mix the dry ingredients & pour the butter in mixing the mixture with your fingers. You want the mixture crumbly yet moist. Put the batter in the oven for 5 min. & then take out & crumble the topping on top, then it all goes back in the oven & bake according to directions in the recipe. You could add nuts, dried dates, any dried fruits or nuts you like!   Finally, you owe it to yourself to get some really good pans. This for loaves of bread as gluten free bread requires the extra height & support these pans give. You won't have to use parchment paper or make the tin foil collar which is a pita. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/bread-loaf-pan-9-x-4-x-4 These are great for making the dinner roll recipe into burger buns: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/individual-pie-and-burger-bun-pan
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Actually, there is a place I could complain to about how my request to amend my record was handled. zthey really messed up onthis one. I think this doctor was too careless to set a HIPPA policy in place or doesn't pay attention to generic forms included to fill out with new patient forms. I'm debating whether or not to file a complaint. If the doctor adds derogatory remarks to my report, I will definitely file a complaint. I really should file a complaint for all the patients who are mistreated, but I don't need more stress in my life. I have found doctors like her create stress or sometimes it's best to say goodbye without further contact. Can I Appeal if a Covered Entity Refuses to Make an Amendment? Maybe. An institution must accept complaints about its health privacy policies and practices. Filing a complaint with an institution may not be the equivalent of filing an appeal of a denial of a request for amendment, but it may help if it forces someone new at the covered entity to review your request. However, some institutions may accept formal appeals. Consult the institution’s notice of privacy practices to see if there is an appeal method for a denial of a request for amendment. Talk to the privacy officer at the covered entity to see if you can obtain help. You can also complain to the Secretary of the federal Department of Health and Human Services about how your request was handled. The Department’s Office of Civil Rights processes complaints. You can find information about the process at http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/complaints/index.html. You have another alternative. When a covered entity denies your request for amendment, it must tell you that you can request the covered entity to provide a copy of your request for amendment with any subsequent disclosure of the disputed information. In some instances, it may be important to make the request. Remember that the covered entity is not required to tell others about the dispute unless you ask.    
    • Johnny Carinos
      According to Johnny Carino's' gluten free menu, the potato soup is safe to eat. However, their allergen guide says the soup has wheat. Anybody know which is right? I contacted my local restaurant and sent an email to the email address listed on their website. However, my local place did not know, and no one has responded to my emails yet. I would love to try this restaurant, but now I am worried if it is safe.  allergen guide http://pmgdata.s3.amazonaws.com/menu/75327/pdf/allergy_info_guide_7-21-13_8731.pdf   gluten free menu http://glutenfreeguidehq.com/johnny-carinos-gluten-free-menu/

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
