Topics I've Started

Glutening - How Long Does It Take?

14 July 2006 - 09:27 AM

Is there a general timeframe one would expect to have between eating gluten and having a reaction? Does it depend on the amount of the gluten, or does that only affect severity? I want to try and figure out exactly what it was that caused this reaction.

I started to have symptoms (emergency D, bloating, cramping, headaches, irritability, etc.), a few hours after I ate something I thought was most-likey gluten-free. I'm still not sure if it was or not...could it have been something I hate the night before? Or would it most likely have been this item from a few hours ago?

On a side note, I think I've determined that I'm not only allergic to wheat, but I'm probably celiac (as many of you suggested) - even though the blood test for celiac was negative (which was taken a month after I'd gone gluten-free). I'm not sure I should do an Enterolab because once symptoms arise, I can always point to a couple of items that I took chances on. I think I've been living rather haphazardly and not as seriously as I should because I thought it was just a wheat-allergy and not celiac.

Thank You

I just wanted to thank everyone here for all the help they have offered, all the advice, thoughts, etc.

I just received the Delphi List. When I opened it and saw that it was 79 pages long, I was so happy I nearly cried. I've been living off of a few things from the local co-op, but was so expensive and so...not like real food! I've been avoiding eating out, assuming that my new nutrition issues would be too difficult for friends and family to deal with.

THANK YOU THANK YOU.

*HUGS ALL OF YOU*

What Is The Delphi List?

I've seen it mentioned a few times, but haven't ever heard more about it. What is the delphi list and how can I get it?

Thank you!

Wheat Allergy Testing

30 May 2006 - 01:00 PM

Considering that everyone here has provided more information for me than anything or anyone else, I thought I'd come to you for questions.

First - a little background:
--I've hurt somewhat most of my life - joint and muscle aches. Push on my muscle and it hurts. Didn't realize this wasn't NORMAL till a few years ago. However, I tend to have above average muscle mass for a woman. (we call this Wisconsin Hearty Peasant Stock symdrome.)
--Popping joints, cracking joints.
--I also have a gas issue, as I'm seemingly very gassy.
--I have a long history of occasional stomach upsetness. As child, really bad - only laying on the cold bathroom floor and drinking milk would help. Now it ranges, from mild upsetness to laying on the floor. I'd say it happens at an above average rate.
--Some bowel irregularity in consistency, frequency, etc. I don't recall this ever being any different. Some foods - usually eating out (like any meal at Denny's or McDonalds) cause a reaction within an hour or so.
--I've been overweight (30-50 pounds on average) most of my life and little seems to help me change this. Even steady exercise and limited caloric intake cause little effect.
--I feel tired a lot of the time, and my mother kept saying she thought we had ADD because things would get foggy a lot of the time.
--I LOVE bread and ate it all the time.

I received interdermal testing for allergies and came up wheat-allergic. I did some research and learned that interdermals can have false positives.

Still, I read Wheat Free-Worry Free, and decided to start a gluten-free diet. That was a week and a day ago, which I'm reading on here is not long enough to have a substantial change in symptoms. Still, I felt better during the first week and lost two pounds (which could be due to a severe change in eating habits, and psychosomatic response.)

My allergist, after some "Why would you want that?" questions, has said he'd order me a RAST if I wanted to ensure I'm allergic to Wheat, and I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning where I will have to request a test for celiac.

The questions I have are:
--Is a RAST expensive?
--How reliable is a RAST?
--If I've gone wheat-free, is a RAST going to fail?
--Should I get tested for celiac?


All of your help is appreciated in advance.
