Hi,

I am new to this website and I really hope someone can help me. I have been on a gluten free diet for the past 2 years and the only time I have been sick is when I eat gluten in foods without realising it is in it.

At the moment I am sitting here with pains, bloating and my arms and legs are covered in huge red welts which are that itchy its driving me crazy. I am trying desparately to find what I have eaten to start this reaction.

My question is ...... does anyone know if Balsamic vinegar contains malt/gluten.....As it is the only thing I can think that I have had to give me this reaction.

I knew that I couldn't have malt vinegar but thought that balsamic was OK.

If anyone can help I would really appreciate it....

thanks

:huh:

Most of them are okay but some balsamic vinagers will have added flavors to them. Have you called the maker to ask if this is gluten-free? That would be my first step. Also some food companies will change formulas or plants, this could make something you have eaten that was safe now unsafe. When cereals decided it is healthier to be multigrain many added wheat starch to products that had been safe just to have that multigrain label. Make sure you periodically recheck products that you use.

You also talk of food but don't mention personal products. Have you checked shampoos and such? Many of us become more sensitive to small amounts once the body gets used to being gluten free so do check those products also if you haven't already.

It can be really hard to pinpoint what the problem is at times we never find out what 'got' us, I hope you are able to figure it out soon.

What are your iron results?  Was ferritin (iron stores) taken?  Are you actually anemic (low hemoglobin)?  The results you posted are your Immunoglobulins.  Looks like your IgE is high, but then it is Spring and allergy season is supposed to be pretty bad this year (at least in the US).  What riggers your allergies (e.g. cats, horses, mold, etc.)? Have other autoimmune issues been ruled out that could cause tendinitis or vertigo?
