    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?


Reacting To Not Common Things

I am sensitive to alot of things....aside from gluten. If what you're using is gluten free....then the reactions are most likely caused by some sort of intolerance that you havent yet identified.

Since you mention oils, lipstick, creams and vegan bars....you may want to look into "salicylate inolerance".....thats just one of many possibilities.

Good luck. :)

I had never noticed strange reactions to lotions, but recently since being gluten free about 4 months all kinds of things are bothering me. In the process of pin pointing.

The other day I used the same lotion I always use and started getting dizzier and dizzier until it clicked omg it was the lotion, got in the shower washed it off and started to feel better.

I'm thinking since soy is as bad a gluten for me that the soy derived vit. E tocopherol could be the issue, but I'm kinda just guessing at this point.

I saw an allergist and have allergy testing tomorrow, the doc told me to bring in my lotions...will let you know if they find anything. He said it could be any # of ingredients.

The olive oil bothering you is strange

this condition can seem so bizarre! It's alot of work figuring it out! And yes I think our Immune systems are all out of whack at this point, until we can heal.

Good Luck!!!!

nothing too interesting to report...other than that I have developed a few low grade food allergies.

(he did not test the lotions this time)

It is very common for new dx celiac to come down with new food intolerances and allergies. My Doctors are telling me most should be temporary but we are looking at like 6 months to a year.

He said even though most of my skincare is natural/vegetable based there are still fragrances that I am sensitive to.

I have seen a dermatologist, he gave me some samples of Cetaphil, neutragena, cerave lotions just the basics...no color, fragrance anything...will have to double check the ingredients for wheat/soy.

my natural stuff all had soy, wheat, barley, perfumes so I am done with those and probably going with the CeraVe

http://www.cerave.com/cream.htm ...still waiting to hear back about the ingredient list.

Good Luck! It's not easy but we will learn!

I use cetaphil and LOVE it. My face is still a work in progress, but cutting dairy was a big factor, and then controlling the irriation was the other piece. I use it without water, since my skin is really dry and irritates very easily.

    Thank you for all of the suggestions and information.  I will see a lot of the symptoms that I have that I didn't mention listed caused by lack of certain enzymes.  I have blood tests every 3 months. That is when I noticed my cholesterol, etc. not in check.  I eat too many carbohydrates because it causes less diarrhea than a lot of vegetables.  But in talking to 3 of my sisters they are already on medication for the problem.   One has Celiacs the other has Sjorgrens which I also have.  I'm conce
    For the fog and memory, it can be many things, the brain requires certain ratios and amounts of fat to function, it also requires b-vitamins the full spectrum among other amino acids, minerals and vitamins, nerve functions require magnesium, potassium and other things to fire right.  Celiac can hamper the ability to break down and absorb nutrients, digestive issues and enzymes can further complicate this, and trying to eat the right ratios of foods. I supplement with Liquid Health Mega B-compl
    I am interested in your comments about losing your memory.  I have Celiacs and IBS, etc.   Very difficult to eat a healthy diet.  One goes against the other.  The past year I have noticed a marked difference in my memory and was very concerned about it because my mother had Alzheimer's.  I had a brain scan but that is not the problem at least it doesn't show up on the MRI.  All of my blood enzymes are way out of line for my size and I'm thinking it's the diet and inability to do extensive exerci
