Celiac Disease And Other Food Allergies
0

2 posts in this topic

Is it common for people with celiac disease to have allergies to other foods? Three years ago I developed food allergies to fish and chicken even though I had eaten them almost every day for three years with no problem. Then I started breaking out in hives and having breathing problems. Went to allergist and he ran food allergy tests and said I was allergic to chicken, fish and shellfish (I already knew about the shellfish.) That was when I really upped my intake of whole wheat products (primarily started eating pasta every day). Now I've had some bloodwork done that indicates I might have Celiac Disease and Vitamin B12 deficiency (plus neurological damage as a result of the B12 deficiency.)

Have you heard about leaky guy syndrome? Here's one (of many) info links:

The basic idea is that when your gut is torn apart (which happens with celiac), your intestines stop functioning as a barrier to undigested food, yeast, etc, and lots of stuff that isn't supposed to get into your body DOES! When the undigested proteins et al. get into your body, your immune system sees them as invaders and you develop an immune response to them.

As an example: during my first year of celiac recovery I ate almonds every day as a way to try to keep my weight up. Soon I started noticing a reaction to the almonds, including abrupt temperature drops and shivering. I had an allergy test done, and was shocked to find out that I had developed a fairly serious IgE (traditional allergy) response to almonds. I am sure I developed that allergy just during that year.

I also can't eat casein (in dairy products), corn, soy, eggs - and I've been gluten-free for 3 years. I"m hoping to gradually recover the ability to eat these foods. But that's what 40 years of undiagnosed celiac did to me!

    • 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.
