yesterday i ate 4 samoas. i felt 'ok' for the rest of the day. since i have gotten any hives or sick from them, do i not have a gluten allergy??


- gluten free since August 2007

- endoscopy came back negative for celiac in December 2007

- bloodwork confirms egg allergy

- allergy testing confirms only banana, apple, melon, egg and environmental allergies

i get hives anywhere on my waist down and less bloating/constipation when i do not eat wheat.

jealous though I am :lol:

no, this doesn't necessarily mean anything. when I was challenging gluten originally, I would only be able to go a few days at a time before I'd cave and eat gluten- with little to no reaction- which just confused me more. But once I let myself heal, I now get a big reaction with a teensy bit. So it's a matter of letting the reaction clear up (for at least a few weeks) before challenging, and maybe with a food other than samoas.


Gluten Free since 10/07

Mildly Lactose Intolerant, slight intestinal symptoms after eating milk products, but easily corrected with lactase enzyme

Endometriosis- DX'd 5/07

Gluten Antibodies- "negative"...don't know exact numbers, am highly suspicious...

DXed celiac 12-19-07 via genetics/elimination diet- DQ2 allele

Brother with Celiac, aspergers...his tests were all negative (he didn't have genetics done), including endoscopy, but he definitely is at the least gluten intolerant...highly suspect my mother has it as well- she has hyperthyroid, fibromyalgia, hemochromatosis, and now colon cancer, and she has been weak and exhausted and just generally sick. She's going to get tested.
