I have been gluten-free for over 1.5 years now (self diagnosed - blood work was negative) - adjusting nicely to the diet. My health was great for awhile, but then I started having symptoms again - mainly skin problems, depression, anxiety. If I try to stay strict on a no sugar/no carb diet, I feel ok. But today, I had half a sandwich (Udi's gluten-free bread) and some potato chips (all items strictly gluten-free). About 20-30 min later, my eyes are burning, I have a headache, my lips sting, and my head itches like crazy. This isn't the first time this has happened. Had some rice with dinner a week ago, same thing. Had a couple glasses of wine, same thing. I know I have a problem with Candida, but will that trigger the almost immediate reaction? After having a couple drinks watching the football game on Sunday, I realize it is the cause of my anxiety - I was a mess the whole day Monday. I am taking probiotics everyday along with antifungals and digestive enzymes. I know I need to be more strict with the carb/sugar intake for the Candida diet, but this is getting crazy. Meat and vegetables is easy for dinner - lunch is the hardest meal for me....oh and that crazy time after dinner when all you want is a snack - I've been surviving on cheese, but I only like the GOOD cheese, so it's getting expensive (and technically not supposed to have it on Candida diet anyway). Just wondering about the allergic type reaction.

I was thinking it might be sulfites, or something similar. I can't eat Udi's nor most potato chips for that reason. Udi's due to the corn syrup; most processed corn as well as potato products are sulfited in the processing. As for the rice, the enriched rice has corn starch or something similar that many with sulfite sensitivities have to avoid. Not sure if you had white rice or not? I think I've been o.k. with rice, but I usually do a mix of brown and white rice. Wine also usually has added sulfites, in addition to the natural sulfites.
