that typically and normally one would either have a wheat allergy or celiac disease.

They can have both - but it is not common...

I posed a question to my daughter's allergist because she tested negative for wheat allergy. I asked if that means she most likely would not have celiac then, and he said that it is not common to have both - normally it is one or the either.

anyone?

the reason I am asking is that my son has both. a wheat allergy and celiac.

I am both allergic to wheat and rye, and intolerant to them.

Food allergies in general are statistically rarer than intolerances.

It depends on what wheat allergy your daughter was tested for.

IgE allergy to wheat proteins (not gluten)

IgE allergy to gluten

IgG allergy/intolerance

IgG reaction to gluten is very common in celiacs - up to 75% of them have anti-gliadin antibodies. (if a celiac gets sick from cc in 15-30minutes, it's because of these antibodies, true celiac reaction takes 4-12 hours to develope)

I've never heard of any connection between IgE wheat/gluten allergy and celiac, but I know a few people with both. If you see just the statictical chances - it's quite improbable to have both.

I'm IgE allergic to gluten (chronic asthma, ekzema) and "intolerant" to wheat and probably other gluten grains (or even oats?) - I have all the atypical celiac symptoms (some very severe) but no confirmed enteropathy. I get stomach sick if I get severely glutened, but both IgE allergy and neurological symptoms are much more sensitive to cc.

You're gonna have to reference these numbers - I've never seen anything like them.

Can you give us a link to this research? I would be very interested in learning more about this. An allergic, or histamine reaction does normally take place in the time frame you referenced but according to my allergist the intolerance reaction from gluten antibodies can take up to a week for reactions to develop as the antibodies need to build up in the bloodstream. That was the reason for waiting a week before adding other foods to a true elimination diet.
