Can I Develop New Food Allergies?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am newly diagnosed (one month ago) and am struggling with the gluten-free diet. Plus, I am still in the recovery period and am constantly hungry.

I read somewhere that I can develop NEW food allergies if I keep eating the same foods. Is this true?

Thanks so much,

Candace

Yes, you can develop other food Intolerances if you eat the same food all of the time, but you are more likely to develop additional food intolerances from having a leaky gut due to inflammation from your gluten intolerance. Keep in mind that food allergies are different from food intolerances. It is unlikely to develop ant additional food allergies. Look up leaky gut and you will understand why.

Allergies can come at any time, even if you have eaten the food without problems. If you currently have food allergies, ask your allergist for advice. Otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it for now.

Rather than trying to avoid a new allergy, think about your gluten-free diet in terms of ways to avoid boring meals. Eat a variety of foods. Eat a balanced diet. Look into new recipes and new foods to try. When you eat the same foods all the time, the gluten-free diet seems awful!

As for the constantly hungry stage, I found eating small meals every couple of hours really helps. Also, eat protein heavy meals. Keep some snacks with you or in the car and you wont feel so panicky starved. Cookies, crackers, candies, and fruit work for me :o)

Thanks very much for your reply. I have a question, though: do you know if I would just develop a food intolerance during the recovery phase (which I am in right now) or is this an ongoing issue with celiac?

You might want to see about getting an IgG4 antigen specific blood test done. The one I did recently tested for 90 different foods. In addition to being gluten intolerant, I react to milk, beef, pepper, chocolate, vanilla, tea, cinnamon, blueberries, cranberries and yeast plus a bunch of others. When I removed the offending foods all of my remaining symptoms cleared up within days. I still have a leaky gut after one year gluten-free. The doctor believes that in time I will be able to reintroduce many of these items back into my diet (except for the dairy since I also have a true IgE allergy to milk).

When I put them back in I will do it one at a time like you do with a baby so that I know whether or not I react.

Good luck. I know it can be frustrating and disappointing at times.

    In addition to celiac & rheumatoid arthritis, I also have Reynaud's syndrome. Mine occurs mostly with my fingers. Sometimes my toes get affected if it's really cold.  The grocery store is the worst for me. I hardly ever go in the grocery store without the Reynaud's hitting my fingers. I've tried wearing winter gloves but they don't seem to make one shred of difference. I've also tried using the Hot Hands hand warmer packets in each pocket & putting my hands in my warm pocket with th
    Thank you everyone I went for a second opinion just to re do the blood work hoping I can find out a answer. Last week I had the upper stomach pain again but no celery juice since November so I’m at a loss 😭 but all of my celiac panel including the genetics were negative just that ema which the second doctor said 1:20 is on the low side not sure if that’s true 
It is not a rash, but hives and swelling.  Some doctors think it is a separate autoimmune disorder or that it piggybacks on to others.  It is more commonly associated with autoimmune thyroiditis.   My last bout lasted for six months.  They appeared (from my head to my soles of my feet) every afternoon around 4:00 pm and resolved by morning.  Oddly, they start with abdominal pain.  That is my first clue and next an itchy head.  I was on a cocktail of antihistamines and attempted a low histam
