Gliadin: Can Foods Other Than Gluten Cause Gliadin To Elevate?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

If a person needs to lower their gliadin level, do they need to watch foods other than gluten?

For example, if a person is allergic to eggs, soy, dairy, nuts - do these cause gliadin to elevate as well?

I think you are asking about anti-gliadin antibodies, and the answer is no, antibodies against gliadin should not recognize any other protein.

Gliadin is the protein in wheat. The human body does not make it. Celiacs create anti-gliadin antibodies when exposed to gliadin, but on when exposed to gliadin and the glutens that are similar to it - horedin (barley), secalin (rye), and (for some) avenin (oats). Allergies to other foods are an independent reaction from that immune system creating antibodies against gluten.
