Wheat Allergy Or Celiac?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am hoping someone can tell me is there such a thing as wheat allergy or is it celiac. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto thyroid 7 monthes ago and have had problems ever since. I stopped eating milk and wheat about a month ago and feel much better without. I had a food allergy skin test done and am allergic to wheat and milk and a few other things. Should I have a gluten blood test done? What kind of specialist tests this? I have been to so many doctors and I discovered the food allergy myself by reading on the internet. I believe I have yeast overgrowth and am not eating any sugars for that , but staying away from gluten is also recommeded. Does candida overgrowth predispose one to celiac? Any help is much appreciated.Thanks. Shell

I can't say for sure but heres my deal. I have always had issues w/ candidia, I am celiac. Does it predispose someone......I'm unsure and from the years of dealing with doctors to FINALLY come to this I am also unsure that they get the whole picture. I now see how many people show (symptoms) in different ways. It's not to say that they are not connected but IMO they must be. Keep in mind candidia overgrowth is in an unbalanced system this may be aided by the inbalance in the intestine, they are all connected.

Get your Dr. to direct you through the proper routes in your medical system. There are people from all over here, and different countries mean different systems. Regardless of if it is an allergy or celiac do what feels right for your body. If you have EITHER you should avoid it be good to your body and it will be good to you :)

Hey there

So, to answer your wheat vs celiac question:

Two different things, although you can have both. Does that make any sense? :lol::huh::lol:

An allergic rxn to wheat involves antihistamines, whereas celiac involves antibodies. A person can have either or both, but having one doesn't mean you have to have the other.

I'm not to candida saavy, but from what I have read, I think that a damaged, leaky gut can be conducive to candida. It can also be caused by antiboitics. I would imagine, and someone correct me if I'm wrong, that if you are predisposed to Celiac, candida could be the trigger.

If you are still eating gluten and want to get an answer as to whether your issue with gluten is celiac with an allergy, or simply the allergy, then the testing would be the right way to go. But if you have already gone gluten-free, you would have to start eating it again. Definitely something to consider.

Hope that helped a bit. B)
