Msg Allergy -- Will It Go Away?

Recommended Posts

Hi all -- Ok, I may be really "out there" on this one, but I'm asking anyway :)

At 31 years, I developed celiac during my pregnancy with my 2nd child. As I went gluten free and started healing, I found that if I ate something containing MSG, I felt the same way as when I was "glutened". I have read that a lot of people w/ celiac also are intolerant to MSG.

Here's my question -- once you are totally gluten free and healthy (which I am!!), can MSG be introduced back into one's system? Has anyone ever tried?

MSG is pretty unhealthy anyway, so it's probably better for me to MSG free, but I'd love to share a Dorito or Lipton's Onion Dip with my family every one in a while :lol: All of the summer picnic snacks are just taunting me :)

I don't want to make myself sick "on purpose", so I thought I'd post here.

Take care,

Maureen

Hi, my allergist just told me the other day that in the USA MSG is either wheat-based or beet-based. So other than the MSG issues generally, you might want to be sure of the source of the MSG.

My daughter was very ill four years ago and we went to an allergist who has a 2 year waiting list. The priest I worked for was a friend of his and he got us in. Long story short he fixed my daughter and saved her life. What he told us about allergies is that it takes 30 days for any food to get completely out of your system. After 30 days if it is an allergy (not something that you have developed antibodies to) you can reintroduce the food at one meal every 7 days. So say you are allergic to beef, wheat, rice, and milk like my daughter she could rotate those four things and have one of them every 7 days but it would not be wise to have all of them at a meal every 7 days. Lara has actually been able to put back every thing but rice it still makes her hurt. It took two years before she started not being careful and not caring what she ate. She was in high school and it was hard being a teenager. My brother and his son both have problems with MSG and have for years and it is not going away they get bad migraines everytime.

Its only gotten worse for me. I used to be able to eat a small amt. but now after having it for over 30 years I'm as sensitive as ever. I hardly ever eat packaged foods anymore. I make everything myself, as far as soups and gravies, pizzas, sauces but alot of celiacs do that anyway so it wasn't a big transition for me when I found out about the gluten. The only chips I'll have is a plain potato chip or I've had the rice chips by lundberg (fiesta lime) and I didn't react to those. I still only have them occasionally.

Although MSG may not be good for you and some people do react adversely to it, it is not gluten related, in the US.

As stated, it is always good to call a the company. If the MSG is wheat based, it is required by law to list that as an ingredient. Or it will show as an allergen statement....in the US.

    Chances are if you have lumps on your body for years and the Dr. isn't concerned they're probably not lymph nodes. Chronically swollen lymph nodes would be something every Dr. would be concerned with.  Chances are you just have cysts ...
    It's different  for everyone, it can be a month or maybe a year. Most probably within a few months. This is assuming the symptoms are in fact related to gluten, which they may not be. 
    Hi Laura I'm so pleased you found answers.  This is very encouraging.  Seven years on from my own diagnosis I wish I could have some vitamin and mineral screening, I'm sure I'm still deficient. Cristiana
