oh No, I was't insulted hon I was confused by what you think are "celiac reactions" as opposed to your wheat allergy--because the ones you are listing here are also reactions to gluten.
Trish, I do not think you are reacting to barley and rye because of cross- contamination from wheat.
I think you are reacting because you cannot tolerate the GLUTEN in those grains either. Just my opinion.
Rumbling guts, aching joints, sinus pain, even feeling feverish, etc.--- these are reactions to GLUTEN too. I know they are mine, anyway.
I wonder if you do not have just an allergy to wheat, but gluten intolerance. You do not have to have D or C. Some folks have no bowel issues.
You are avoiding all rye, barley, malt as well, right?
Thanks hon...I was hoping I didn't say anything out of line.
I am absolutely, unequivocally, gluten free, No malt, no barley, no rye, no wheat, including the hidden crap that is in everything. Gluten is the devil and wreaks havoc on me. I am not in any way shape or form a gluten lite (the people I despise).
I know that I am gluten sensitive from the enterolab report, plus I have a wheat allergy. I have no celiac genes. I was just mentioning what the doc said last week, but, it was just her opinion. My med records say "wheat allergy, gluten sensitive" I believe it. And yes, I do suffer many of the same symptoms that a celiac suffers, however, many allergy/sensitive symptoms are the same. So, hanging out here is great, because I can so understand the symptoms. I didn't even have to accidently ingest any to get symptoms, I was getting them just from airborne wheat....I am SOOO grateful to have been given the Zantac. It's a miracle!
