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.


4/2007 Positive IGA, TTG Enterolab results, with severe malabsorption: Two DQ2 celiac genes--highest possible risk.

gluten-free since 4/22/07; SF since 7/07; 3/08 & 7/08 high sugar levels in stool (i.e. cannot break down carbs) digestive enzymes for carbs didn't help; 7/18/08 started SCD as prescribed by my physician (MD).

10/2000 dx LYME disease; 2008 clinical dx CELIAC; Other: hypothyroid, allergies, dupuytrens, high mercury levels

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.

27 years of misdiognoses

seziures summer of 1979 lasted 10 years had maybe a dozen in that time Dr.s never could find what was causing them blamed it on lack of sleep and maybe nutrasweet

rheumatoid arthritis May 1980

wrist joint replacement Jan 1984

fibromyalgia May 1980

insomnia since the 80's

diarrhea 1995-2000 blamed on arthritis meds

Crohn's 1998 after two operations to fix fissures caused by the diarrhea

Other symptons over the last 27 years that have been treated for symptoms not causes:

depression, anemia, constipation, tooth discoloration, tremors in hands, tingling and numbness in feet and hands, fatigue, high blood pressure due to arthritus meds, flushing in face, severe muscle pain and thinking I was going crazy thanks to Dr.'s attitudes.

After diognoses my mother tells me I have an aunt and a cousin with Celiac. Mother tested negative but thinks she is intolerant to wheat and is changing her diet.

Suspect all three of my children have it as well but still trying to convince them to go get tested.

In answer to my prayer, "Lord Please Heal My Broken Body". May 2007 Celiac antibody test positive

Matthew 7: 8 Ask and ye shall receive, Seek and ye shall find, Knock and it shall be opened unto you.

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.
