-Lisa

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)

- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!
- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol
- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

Yes I do have environmental allergies..actually just found out. The allergist said that food allergies don't cause post nasal drip or the redness that is on the skin under my eyes.

food allergies (IgE mediated) as well as food sensitivies (IgG mediated) can cause postnasal drip. dairy is very inflammatory, regardless if people have senstivies to it or not. my daughter got postnasal drip and then asthma from dairy. after i pulled it out of her diet for 1 yr, she can now eat it, in limited quantities.

I'm another one who has chronic post nasal drip. It's so bad at time that it's made me vomit. I asked my doctor about this a few years ago and she couldn't really give me any info, but I did have blood tests done for a slew of common allergens (respiratory) and was negative for all of them (and I also have no other common allergy symptoms whatsoever, like sneezing, itchy eyes, etc).
Don't know what it could be except that it gets much worse after I've eaten... it's really aggravating. I still haven't gone dairy-free, though it's on the agenda. If you find out anything please post.

I had chronic postnasal drip for years, despite everything I did to avoid environmental allergens. However, after I abtained from dairy, my postnasal drip and chronic congestioin magically disappeared. Even when I get respiratory infections, I no longer have congestion or pnd.

Excellent. So in this short thread already 2 people have resolved the post nasal drip by removing dairy. This is great info. Last night after dinner (which involved a salad with feta cheese) I had a coughing fit with post-nasal drip so bad that I was gagging. Yuck. Might need to move that dairy-free trial up on the schedule...
