One Dr. Uses Wine Sensitivity As Health "gauge"
0

8 posts in this topic

I know the topic of wine comes up again and again, with some folks in the "all wine is gluten-free" camp and some in the "not sure why, but I react to wine" camp.

Here's an interesting approach that suggests there can be both camps :)

In the current Wine Enthusiast magazine, there's a short piece (not yet online unless I'm missing something) titled "Just What the Doctor Ordered: Wine may be an essential gauge for your overall health". A Cleveland Clinic anesthesiologist, Dr. Foss, says that if a patient tells him "I can't drink because...", he figures something is out of balance health-wise. Of course the list of possible underlying issues is a long one , but one example is a person could react to bee pollen left on the grape skins (!).

Dr. Foss doesn't mention fining or filtering agents...

The article is only 6 short paragraphs, on page 11. Bottom line says Dr. Foss "Be alert to changes in your response to alcohol. It can help detect conditions at an early stage, when they can be treated or cured."

In case they post this later, the magazine's website is www.winemag.com

That is interesting. After I had my third baby, I couldn't drink anymore. Even if I only had one drink, I would feel completely hungover the next day. I still have no clue what could have caused that, but even after 5 years, one more baby, and the gluten-free/cf diet, I still can't drink anymore w/out getting sick the next day.

VERY interesting. 

I get a bad reaction to red wine. It's not a gluten reaction however. My neck muscles get super tense and sore. It does not happen when i drink white wine tho.

White wine gives me a headache. Red wine has me rushing to the bathroom before I even finish one glass. Mom told me her doctor said that inability to tolerate red wine was one of the first signs of celiac. Of course, that was back in the 80's, and who knows if it's right? But about the time I started developing psoriasis, I developed my intolerance to red wine.

Well, I must be as healthy as a newborn pony because I tolerate red wine VERY WELL!  Thank goodness for small miracles...... :D

I should add that I could not tolerate any alcohol pre-diagnosis and only discovered the wonders of red wine after I had healed so I must have done something right.

Interesting. I only drink reds in the winter - dehydratese and gives me a headache in ware months. Seasonal allergies have a big effect on my tolerance of all alcohol.

Bad allergies=headache from a drink.

Other times, I'm good to go!

Has anyone had a reflux type reaction to wine?  I had awful, awful reflux last night (almost never have it otherwise) after two glasses of white, and no food.  Wondering if it could be related to the celiac?

    • Are M&Ms Gluten Free?
      Olivia....what country are you located in?  I just bought a bag of regular M&M's from the vending machine at work. They are the milk chocolate ones and it is a 1.69 oz. bag.  The allergy warning states: Contains milk and soy. May contain peanuts.  The "best before" date on it is for April of 2017 so this is a recent bag.

      Getting a diagnosis like celiac an be overwhelming because it's so complex and there's a lot to learn. If you're unhappy with your doctor, switching to a new one and/or getting a second opinion are options. It's really important to find someone you feel comfortable with who listens to your concerns. That being said, as you're preparing for your next appointment, take time to write down any questions that come up as you go about your day beginning to manage your condition and track any symptoms you're experiencing. Did your doctor discuss lifestyle changes and treatment options with you? Here are some examples of things to ask: What tests do I need? What treatment options are available? Should I take nutritional supplements? Are there any dietary restrictions that I need to follow? How will I learn which foods contain gluten? Should I see a dietitian? Can you recommend nutritionists who work with celiac patients? The Celiac Foundation is another resource. Their website has lots of information and resources. There's also the Celiac Support Association – they have local chapters, or the National Foundation for Celiac Awarenes. And check out magazines like Gluten-Free Living, Delight Gluten-Free and Living Without.  
    • Kidney disease question
      Icelandgirl and I often remark, "There's always something [to be worried about]"! Whilst  is obviously important to have all these tests and there is good reason to check them (one reads that very occasionally doctors miss something) it has done my health anxiety absolutely no favours having blood test after blood test!    
    • Celiac Night Vision
      On 4th June I posted on the ehealth vision forum under the title seasonal night vision scotomas, but there were no replies. I have just had my eyes tested by an optometrist. Acuity is 20/25. She did field testing and Topcon tomography and did not find anything alarming for my age. However in dim lighting against a light background I can sometimes see a round slightly greenish area about 20 degrees across with lateral extensions to the blind spots. Shutting the eyes suddenly makes it a light area. The scotomas occur within this area. I can also see those intriguing blue arcs of the retina with both eyes (though they always look violet to me). Trying to identify what causes migraine, scotomas and possible celiac symptoms is notoriously difficult which is why there are no good papers on how to do it. I continue to keep a daily record of foods, symptoms and anything else which seems relevant listing what is being avoided and highlighting possible clues. notme! - we are eating tomatoes and potatoes this year! Good luck to other celiac detectives!

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
