Could it be that she's kissing you right after eating gluten? That could do it.

She needs to brush her teeth and whatnot before kissing you.

I think this may have been been the case last week when she had a packet of quavers think i spelt that wrong, anyway crisp that had gluten in them. So what about the make up? Ive basically made her check everything she wears and told her to change it if it has gluten. Do we not think it on my face would cause a reaction? Thx for your replys

Any makeup you might ingest. Lipstick might be a concern. You would get it on your mouth. Mascara shouldn't make a difference unless you chew on her eyelashes. :o

Well, I expect "reactions" from him, but they do not involve gluten. ;)

The minuscule amount of wheat that may possibly (read as : remotely) be in a fleck of mascara or eye makeup would not concern me or my hubs at all.

Lipstick is the biggest concern for gluten CC in makeup.

And the people who live with WEs and swap spit regularly say BRUSH YOUR TEETH before smooching.

I am sure this is what is happening.

I (briefly) dated a guy in high school who had an anaphalactic allergy to dairy. Literally, if we kissed soon after I ate dairy he was in BIG trouble.

It sounds to me like you are very careful on your own, but if you are THAT sensitive you must be coming in contact with it somewhere.

Anything put on our skin hits our bloodstream in 30 seconds.

It sounds like it is time for a real heart to heart with her to explain the seriousness of your condition and teach her how to be more cautious for your protection.

This is not true. If this were true everything we touched would go into our bodies. There are a very few things that are small enough to go through skin. An example is a nicotine patch which is specially made to be small enought to go through. But not the whole patch, just some cells on the patch.

Not sure where you read that information, but I do not think that is quite true, hon.

If this were the case, we'd be soaking up any number of high levels of chemicals, etc.when taking showers, swimming in pools, splashing paint or gasoline on ourselves accidentally or swimming in the ocean.

And I could probably rub a loaf of Wonderbread on my legs and nothing would happen to me as I do not have a wheat allergy in addition to celiac and it would not somehow get into my blood..

I hear she has her hub's rub his legs with Wonderbread... kinky! :D

Gotta agree with the things not soaking into skin. Some things may do that, but for the most part we don't have a big problem there with everyday items.

Deals88, is it possible you are reacting to a perfume? Some people are sensitive to odors. like perfumes.

    • When it's that high, it almost always means Celiac.  Sure, you can have Crohns, too.  Just like you can have Celiac and diabetes, the common cold or a hang nail.  I wouldn't jump to Chrohns.  I don't think the tTg really has anything to do with Chrohns?  Where did you see that?  Sometimes, a slightly elevate tTg can be elevated from other issues, but >100 is not a " slightly elevated" reading
    • Hi! I'm new here, and I'm looking for some information because I'm having a hard time finding it.  Over Labor Day weekend I got some kind of intestinal bug. I didn't think much of it until the D persisted once a day up til now. I tried a priobiotic but that didn't help much. I have bad anxiety and began to think that I was just anxious and stressed. No fever, no pain, all bloodwork is normal, so no infection or anemia. My mother has 5 siblings and 3 have celiac. One other one had a high result on a blood test but was never officially diagnosed and insists she doesn't have it. So I went to my local health fair and got the ttg-iga test, just in case. My result came back at >100. So I have called and scheduled a visit with a GI for next week. Aside from the recent intestinal issues I have never thought that I had any signs of celiac. I do have dermatographism and have had that since I was 20 (I am 28). I have severe anxiety. I had PUPPPS when I was pregnant with my daughter and it was miserable. It looks much like the skin rashes that celiacs have. Again, didn't think much of it. Because of my anxiety I am terrified that this high blood test is from something else, like crohn's. I don't have diabetes, my liver and thyroid numbers are fine. I think it's much more plausible that this is celiac because of my family history. But my anxiety says "what if it's crohns?" Does anyone have any insight? Is it true that the ttg iga can be elevated from crohns and not celiac? Is >100 pretty definitive of celiac? I didn't know if crohns was the cause if the number would be this high.  I'm just freaked out. 
    • This does say it is for NCGS....so not  for Celiacs.  There is a drug being developed that may actually break down the gluten in the stomach before it hits the intestines.  However, that is still in clinical trials.
    • could be from your neck, or it is, literally, in your head. perhaps a scan is needed.
    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
