Celiac Diease And Anaphylactic Nut Allergy?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been diagnosed with severe Celiac disease for about a year now. Also, I have an Anaphylactic tree nut allergy as well which i have known about for 2 years. My question is what are the chances of both!!!!??? And is there anyone else out there with the same problem??? :(

Food is such a chore because everything has to be nut free too! I haven't had a cookie in forever!! Someone help!! The local gluten free bakery uses nuts so I have nothing but a tiny gluten free section in Loblaws and about 7 of the many products on that shelf. :angry:

Can anyone shed some light on this?? My doctors have no answer for me, at least the ones who actually know what Celiac is! :)

There are others with both, yes. I have other anaphylactic allergies, but not nuts. (latex and squash...wtf??? lol)

As for cookies, its time to get creative in the kitchen! Homemade= sooo much better than store bought :-) But there are plenty of gluten and nut free cookies out there- I suggest you try a health food store, such as whole foods or trader joes, or order online. There's a brand called enjoy life that makes products free of all common allergens, including gluten and nuts. Their products are pretty hit or miss, and I haven't tried the cookies, but they're safe! I'm sure there are other brands as well.

PS- My cousins have anaphylactic nut allergies, and a dessert that works for all of us is meringues or chocolate dipped strawberries (one's also egg-allergic) or something like that.

If you can eat peanuts there are several recipes that use peanut butter and chocolate chips and are really good! :)

The good life brand double chocolate brownies (i think that's the name) are pretty stinkin good!!! My husband and my son, both of whom eat gluten, loved them and thought they were great. Check them out for a cookie fix!

The great thing about good life is that they do not use the "dirty eight" allergens, and have facilities dedicated to these items so there's no risk of CC. LOVE THAT!

My 6 year old daughter is in the same boat. She's anaphylactic to peanuts, and ALL tree nuts are off limits. She's also intolerant to soy, as well as allergic to dairy and eggs.

You are absolutely not the only one!!! I've known I was allergic to tree nuts for years. Even as a little kid I had a hard time explaining how weird my throat felt if I ate a cookie with walnuts or something in it. (Hello?!?!? That's the feeling of your throat closing!) I'm not sure if I would be considered anaphylactic or not, but I react with a swelling throat, I get all sweaty and shaky, and then I vomit. My reactions have actually gotten a little worse over the years, but I've never had to carry a shot or medication or anything. It's still a meserable and terrifying experience to get a nut by mistake though.

Anyway, I was diagnosed with Celiac this Spring. I have been pretty happy with the Enjoy Life Brand products I've tried. I've eaten the Snickerdoodle cookies and the trail mix, and they aren't bad. It's very nice to know I can trust they are nut and wheat free. I am lucky enough to NOT be allergic to peanuts, and hope the same is the case with you. I just made peanut butter cookies this weekend: 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup sugar, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, and a glug of molasses. (Chill the does as it's sticky) Bake at 350. Nobody should have to love without cookies!!! Plus, with these you don't have to go buy any special flours or anything. Hope it helps!!

My family is in a similar position.

My oldest has an anaphylactic nut allergy. No peanuts or tree nuts or shared equipment products. She also is extremely lactose intolerant.

My youngest is a celiac, dairy allergy, shellfish allergy, egg allergy is suspect, and she can't have nuts due to sibling anaphylactic allergy.

I just have Celiacs. So although we don't have the nut and Celiac combo, we eat like it. And yes, we have the why me days! And the "This SUCKS!!" days. But overall, we eat pretty well. Of course, I have learned to love baking, so that helps.

The Enjoy Life chocolate chips and cookies are great. We love their brownie cookies too.

Also try the CherryBrook Kitchen Chocolate Cake mix. Sooo good!

Namaste Blondies are yummy!

gluten-free Pantry Brownie mix, Coffee Cake mix, etc are great!

Start learning to love lists, because it is the only way I can keep track of all of this!

Good luck and it does get better.

I'm celiac and allergic to peanuts. I'm not anaphylactic so that makes things a bit easier, but I do somewhat understand the difficulty. I was at a party the other night and all the stuff that didn't have gluten had peanuts! Seriously, what are the odds? Usually my friends are really good at having something I can eat, but that night it was like everyone had gluten-induced brain fog and forgot what I couldn't eat :P Not that I minded, I always come prepared.

@Alaskaguy With regard to the timing, I think that everyone is a bit different! I used to have a shorter time to onset when I was first diagnosed (within 24h). As time has gone on, and I've glutened myself less and less, I have noticed that the time gets a bit longer.  Recent history seems to matter a bit too - if I've been glutened recently and then get glutened again, the rash will show up faster on the second round. For example, in the last 3 weeks I got slightly glutened by inadvertent
