I've gone through 26 pages of posts, and I didn't find anything that talked about having Celiac but also intolerance to egg whites.

I know I'm not allergic to egg whites, as I had a comprehensive food allergy test a couple of months before my Celiac diagnosis. But, since I went gluten free in January, I've started to notice that my stomach gets upset and I get bloated and gassy whenever I have egg whites.

I've heard of some people being more sensitive to dairy once going gluten free, but I've never heard of problems with egg whites unless you've already had an issue.

Am I the only one? Also, can stopping gluten cause a reaction to the other IgA antibody trigger foods? Do I now need to start worrying about dairy, soy, chocolate, corn?

I had a reaction the other day with eggs, got upset stomach and super itchy rash. Hope you find out if you're intolerant to them or not. I just got tested.

Egg intolerance with Celiac is not unusual.

Are you buying egg whites in a carton? Sometimes they have stuff added that may cause some people issues.

Hi -- no I'm just buying regular eggs and separating them out. I usually make 4-5 egg whites for breakfast every morning with my oatmeal. I haven't done that in a few days, though. Still feeling sick but not sure if that was because I went to a birthday brunch for a friend and the only thing I could eat (besides bacon) was -- of course -- eggs! So, I had an omelet. Been pretty sick since but not sure if that is a coincidence??

Just had a yogurt as an afternoon snack. I don't eat a lot of dairy, but here we go again. Stomach pains and bloating. Am I just resigned to vegetables and maybe some chicken or fish??
