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?

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
