  1. I ate a couple of things. gluten-free sopressata which has never given me a reaction. 3 Egg whites and 1 yolk, and as far as I know I've never had any issues with eggs. This gluten free frozen egg meal which didn't really have anything that I've reacted to that I know of, although it did list "spices" and I could maybe be sensitive to a spice? It's the only thing really new I've introduced to my diet. Also had A LOT (8 slices) of Rudi's gluten free bread. Quite a few ingredients in it so I could be sensitive to one of them specifically. Really tough to figure out honestly. I'll avoid the bread and see if it happens again. The other day I got bad cramps with no D nor hives, but it was pretty bad cramping. Like rip my eyes out bad lol. I was eating a lot of that bread as well. Maybe I'll go back to Udi's and see if it happens with that one. Also, good to see I'm not the only one that suffers from nasal issues. You guys are great!
  2. Great replies as usual guys. Everyone on this site is very helpful and I really appreciate it. Is it possible to always be congested if one is gluten intolerant or celiac? I've been permanently congested for like 5 years... Its hell. I'll stay gluten free and see what happens. It's really tough sometimes... But we'll see what comes from it after adhering to the diet for at least a year. I was a vegeterian for a year, how much harder could it be? :'( Oddly enough, avoiding gluten and all I ate this gluten free bread, or at least I think it was a gluten free bread I ate, that gave me a pretty severe allergic reaction with hives and D. It is probably a specific ingredient in the bread, although I ate a few other things as well. Guys got any advice for figuring out what could have given me this reaction? Thanks!
  3. Thanks for the excellent replies guys. My doc ran a celiac panel and it came back negative. I had been gluten free for about 1 - 2 months before I got the panel done. He did check me for a couple of vitamin intolerances and the only one that came back that I was severly dificient in was vit D. It was also the only fat soluble vitamin he checked for, so either I'm deficient from living in a cave/home or I just can't absorb it because its fat soluble. I'm really skinny and cannot gain any weight whatsoever no matter how much I eat or what I eat. I've gone back and forth with the gluten free diet and I do feel slightly better although it takes a while to kick in. At one point while being gluten free for a while I gained a bit of weight but then lost it again because I believe I was not adhering to a complete gluten free diet. I believe this was because I would go to restaurants and assume that something was gluten free based off the item. Not sure though! I've had a lot of weird symptoms throughout my life and I would say that some are resolved by not eating gluten. At the moment I've been gluten free for about a month. My girlfriend says the biggest differance is my personality. On gluten I have a lot of mood swings according to her and when I'm gluten free she says I'm a lot more calmer and more open to talking to people and socializing. I miss gluten food and really want a diagnosis, but I hate that according to you guys the only absolute way is to do a biopsy. I mean, I could stay gluten-free and see if I gain weight and all my symptoms start going away as well. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
  4. Hello all, I'm new to the site and I have a question. I recently took the A.L.C.A.T test to determine if I have a gluten intolerance/Celiac disease or not. I got my test back and it shows that I have a severe reaction to Gluten and a moderate reaction to Gliadin. So my question is, is the test reliable enough to accept my diagnosis and abandon all gluten or should I retest through Enterolab? I tested negative on some regular bloodwork my Doc did a while back ago which is why I took the A.L.C.A.T test. I also read that the regular blood test can yield false negatives. I've yet to do a biopsy and the Enterolab because 1 I don't want a biopsy done cause I'm a wuss and 2 I got a positive on A.L.C.A.T. Thank you for your assistance!
