One Dr. Uses Wine Sensitivity As Health "gauge"
Posted 13 August 2009 - 11:01 AM
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
3 gluten-free cousins and counting (1 gold standard, 1 pos blood/no endo, 1 self/dietary diagnosed)
suspect mother was celiac (also, cousin suspects my mother's twin is celiac)
Feb 08 testing 'normal range' for gluten antibodies, IBD and food allergies
Staying off gluten - dietary reaction is compelling for me!

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.
gluten-free since June, 2011
It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!
Life is good!

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

Bad allergies=headache from a drink.
Other times, I'm good to go!
Probable Endometriosis, in remission from childbirth since 2002.
Hashimoto's DX 2005.
Gluten-Free since 6/2011.
DH (and therefore Celiac) dx from ND.
Responsive to iodine withdrawal for DH (see quote, above).
Genetic tests reveal half DQ2, half DQ8 - I'm a weird bird!

I react to the sulphites in wine, which is very common for many people.. Sulphite free wine doesn't bother me....

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?
