Non-Celiac Checking On Hellemans Mayo For Friend
0

3 posts in this topic

I was checking on the internet to find out if Hellmans Mayo is gluten free, for a friend, who I am cooking for.

I arrived at this site. I read a topic - I cant remember who from now - about a lady who said she also had stomach ulcers.

This began to sound familiar, especially when I saw a topic which was talking about bacteria in intestines.

Now please dont think Im being flippant. A few years my dog was extremely ill. His stomach distended and he looked like he was dying. He had bouts of it. The vet couldnt get to the bottom of it. Eventually he sent us to a Consultant Vet, who cost a fortune, but was worth every penny. He diagnosed straight away. He said it was a stomach bacteria called Helicobacter Pylori which is the same bacteria that causes ulcers in human beings. He said he was alarmed to see that our dogs intestines showed as transparent on the x-ray.

Although damage had been done - the good thing was - it was easily cured with a paediatric medicine, taken for two weeks.

You probably know this already, but just in case, it may be worth looking into.

A new bottle or jar would be safe. But if you touched the tip of the bottle to wheat bread or dipped a knife in the jar after it touched wheat bread, it would not be safe.

I can't comment on the rest of the stuff.

hadn't thought of a pet, dogs in particular, as being carries of/for this bacteria. they may well be a cause of infection/reinfection! Just they can be for strep!

Also, many dogs are celiac/gluten intolerant.

    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.  
    • my daughter did stool test from enterolab but this gluten sensitive blood test is from http://requestatest.com/tests/search    
    • OK, was your daughter tested by a doctor or did you do one of these order online stool tests? And the same question goes for your tests. Can you give a link to the company?
    • NO. Approx. 1/3 of the population carries the genes for celiac but that does NOT mean they will ever present with celiac. Only a small percentage of them will. A gene test is really used more to rule out celiac rather than to diagnose it. What I meant was that since your daughter is diagnosed and IF you carry one or both of the celiac genes then there is a greater chance you are celiac or "early stages" especially in light of your symptoms. All 3 of those factors weighed together was what I was referring to.
