Could This Be Really True?

Recommended Posts

Could i really not have allergies anymore? is this possible? the pollen count is the highest it's been, record highs actually. and i haven't had a symptom. I've suffered all my life with allergies in the spring. I see everyone around me sneezing etc, my daughter's eyes are swollen. she's miserable and that was me all my life. I was diagnosed in October and have been gluten free since and have had realtively little trouble. I haven't been tempted to have any of my favorite baked goods, those were my down fall. I figure at some point i'll add treats from whole foods bakery gluten-free brand. as of now, I am still trying to figure out all the things that are happening to me.

and could it be that my allergies aren't going to trouble me anymore? I have a on and off hoarse voice, a bit of runny nose and some tiny congestion. but nothing like everyone around me who are suffering.

Some people have nasal congestion as a symptom of gluten. Maybe all these years you've had mild allergies that seemed much worse because of the gluten.

i have been off all allergy medicine since feb 1. of this year. i was recently diagnosed in december and started to feel better so i cut out some allergy meds. i was on 2 inhalers for asthma and a nasal spray morning and night to breath. i have not taken anything, just a little saline spray if i get a cold. my primary doc agrees and thinks it great..on the other hand my allergist said "gluten , bologna" he does not agree with this. and feels i should continue my inhalers. i haven't and fingers crossed i feel better. good luck with the baked goods from whole foods. i love them.

My allergies are for the most part gone also. My allergist explained that my immune system was in hyperdrive, the only thing I did not react to on skin testing was beech trees. That was actually when he first suspected celiac and I left the office on a strict elimination diet. I do still have a couple things I am allegic to but haven't needed singulair or my inhalor since diagnosis.

I noticed the same thing too. The whole neighborhood is blooming and I don't even have a stuffy nose. I think I still have some allergies, because I've had a few occasions of allergies since diagnosis, but it wasn't even enough to take medicine, just irritating.

This celiac thing is weird huh? :blink:

my allergies changed too - and it was before I went gluten free. I don't know exactly why, just that I was able to deal without daily claritin. all for the good, I say, since it hadn't gone OTC at that time! :)
