She is also the person who told me she researched Celiac alot because she thought she might have it. She found that the only way to know if you have it is, when you die, to get autopsied. :ph34r:

two of my kids have the eggs in baked goods dealio - one gets digestive issues when eating plain eggs and the other has more of a texture problem with eggs -- can't believe it is one of the few things I can tolerate - am very grateful for the incredible edible egg!

Never ate eggs as a child as hated them.
We have our own chooks now and I seem to be fine with them.
Give them a scoop of organic wheat each afternoon (hubs deals with chook food feeding - available to them all the time) and wash my hands after - picking up eggs anyway, so would of course.
I seem to be fine with them - often eat two hard boiled hot before doing a lot of exercise and they really keep me going (with energy, I mean). :D .
Actually I thought that birds were the one animal designed to be able to digest grain - warning, could be talking nonsense here :ph34r: !
It annoys me that their organic wheat contains soya - why is soya in almost everything :angry: !

I don't have any scientific evidence that there is gluten in eggs. I only have my own experiences and those of my children which are subjective. It isn't easy finding chickens that aren't fed supplemental grain here either, especially in the winter. I live in the northern part of the country. I had eliminated eggs from the grocery store as I felt better when I didn't eat them. Then I found a farmer at a farmer's market who pasture raised her chickens and I started eating her eggs without any issues. When it got cold, I found that they were making me sick. I talked to her about it and she told me that they get wheat in the cold season. Now what I do is freeze a bunch of eggs during the summer when they don't make me sick, and then I have them to eat when the cold season comes along and they start to make me sick. My children also have problems with the eggs that coincide with mine.

Of course, this could all be in my head, and the power of my personality may be affecting my children, but those are my experiences.

I think that I am either a nut case, or much more sensitive than your average super sensitive celiac.


It's no in your head, if tour super sensitive (like me and my son) then you are grtting slightly glutened by the eggs (which sucks because we LOVE eggs. I have been purchasing cage free grain fed chickens and I do feel glutened after eating them but only last a shott while but its a indefinate reaction and its still there ugh! We have a local co-op store I am going to try theres next time and will not be buying eggs from our local supermarket anymore this winter .. I hate bejng so sensitive.. Its also there with some meats!

It's possible to be intolerant to eggs no matter what they eat.

I had been able to eat any eggs -- the lectin content is my problem -- it has NOTHING to do with gluten.

Eggs are a wonderful food and should not be given up without a trial -- and if you fail a solid trial then you should trial each egg yolk and egg white.

I'll have them back in my diet just as soon as possible.

I am sensitive to eggs but I believe it has nothing to do with my gluten sensitivity.

We have chickens and feed them some wheat. It is an inexpensive and easy to obtain grain with a high protein content. I have nothing to do with feeding the chickens and they also eat hay and free range stuff. I am hoping to find an appropriate feed without wheat, but surprisingly it really does not seem to be a problem for me. I am so thankful for that. Eggs were one of the 11 things that I had no antibodies for on my IGG test. I poach several every morning and my blood counts have been excellent! My cholesterol is okay also. They are so easy to cook and quick and yet so healthful.

Subjective proof I have it is okay:
No hives
No fatigue
I have energy
IGG tests negative for egg antibodies

I expected to have a problem with eggs; I have eaten them nearly everyday for 5 years, but amazingly all is well between eggs and I!

Has anyone ever just been concerned about what's ON the egg? Egg cartoons always smell like shit or rotten milk or something else gross as it is. Well, the cardboard ones.
If I thought I was getting glutened from eggs I'd wash them (in the shells of course) and my hands thoroughly after handling them, and probably keep the cartoon in a plastic bag too. Then seen if I still had an issue with them.

(man! I rarely venture into the Super Sensitive forum, but this thread was worth a peek!)

I also have trouble with eggs on their own. Seem to be ok in baked goods, but not as the main ingredient. Even so, I've switched to mostly vegan baking since my man won't eat eggs on principle.
I don't think it's a gluten thing, it's just that a lot of us seem to also have issues with eggs, just like a lot of us have problems with dairy, soy, etc.
While grain-fed chickens aren't going to make gluteny eggs (or gluteny chickens. I hope!), what chickens are fed must have an impact on their nutritional value, etc. Organic, free range eggs are just bigger and better all around...

Oh, and whoever those doctors are who test for celiac then don't reccomend a gluten-free diet? WTF?

All I know is I eat eggs, I feel nauseous and shaky in an hour. Not worth it.

~ Be a light unto yourself. ~ - The Buddha

- Gluten-free since March 2009 (not officially diagnosed, but most likely Celiac). Symptoms have greatly improved or disappeared since.
- Soy intolerant. Dairy free (likely casein intolerant). Problems with eggs, quinoa, brown rice

- mild gastritis seen on endoscopy Oct 2012. Not sure if healed or not.
- Family members with Celiac: Mother, sister, aunt on mother's side, aunt and uncle on father's side, more being diagnosed every year.

Exactly! I likely do not belong here on the super-sensitive sub-forum as I am just figuring out how all of it applies to me at all but, I can tell you that egg sensitivity to either or both egg components, yolk or egg white, is separate for at least some ppl from a gluten allergy perspective... or maybe a predecessor or component for some along the way towards all this garbage.

I developed an egg white sensitivity years ago (30) when I was pregnant with my second child. Ppl tell me I am crazy and that, as a heart patient, I would be better off being sensitive to the yolk with all the cholesterol. With increasing years, I have learned to trust my own body more, despite the nay-sayers. It is deifinitely the whites for me. In cooked foods it sometimes works out ok for me.

I do not even tell the flu shot folks that I react perhaps every third time to the annual flu shots (that contain egg white) because, well, not having the shot carries more risks for me than the topical reaction/irritation.

Anyway, I did appreciate the info from Scott R and wonder if he is simply reporting on a precursor or coexistent condition like fat intolerance or intolerance to spicy, grilled food in some ways (both of which I have had for many years).

I still thank you all for your informative posts even if controversial.
