Celiac And Wheat Allergy
0

5 posts in this topic

I was DX Celiac 3 years ago this past week. Shortly after DX, I was food allergy tested. The Dr told me I would not be positive for wheat because Celiac is auto immune etc. However, she was surprised when I reacted to wheat and barely. (skin test) I haven't thought to much about it because I must be gluten-free anyway. I've had good and bad days trying to feel better. I work at a school and am around gluten a lot! I try to do  my best at avoiding it.

 

Sometimes I notice if I am in the same room with someone else cooking gluten I start to cramp up. I just thought I was crazy until today.You know, it's all in my head thing. I was alone all weekend with no gluten in sight and I felt human! Today I picked my daughter up from her friends and she hugged me a lot. About 15 minutes later, I'm cramping and bloating. Now, call me crazy, I asked her what she had eaten. She said pancakes, am I crazy? They had made pancakes from a mix. Has anyone heard of this. I didn't want to write this, because I didn't want people to think I've totally lost it.

My daughter said she will go gluten-free all summer to see if this is truly an issue for me.

 

Has this happened to anyone else or am I crazy?

C Kip! I am so happy to see you! ;)

 

Want my opinion--from my "gut"? sure, why wouldn't you have a reaction of some kind?

if you are still having "good and bad days" 3 years later? SOMETHING is causing you grief.

 

Celiacs can also have a wheat allergy (and I say this often) and it is entirely possible that just being around wheat flour ( or people consuming it ) is giving you continuing symptoms.

 

If your daughter is willing to go gluten-free to see if you feel better, well, kudos to her..... and frankly, she may benefit as well as I am a huge believer in the hereditary aspect of this disease--no matter what the celiac test results say/

 

It is always great to "see you" either here or on GD site. Take care, dear girl!!

I do have typical wheat allergy symptoms at times... last time I tried a gluten challenge, my lips, eyes, and face puffed up, and my heart raced. Classic allergy stuff...

 

But whenever I get glutened, my guts ALSO go freakin' bonkers. Classic intolerance.

 

So is it allergy or intolerance? My GI gave up trying to decide and just went with common sense: DON'T... EAT... WHEAT...

I was just tested for Wheat allergy and I should have my results in two weeks. I accidently ingested wheat and my eyes became swollen and I broke out in hives. My doctor said that it probably wasn't wheat, but maybe my makeup. I've been using the same makeup for years and it happens to be gluten-free. I don't know what else it could have been. We will see in a few weeks what is causing this reaction. It was pretty scary and hoping it doesn't happen again. I have never once had an issue, but once I went gluten-free I have become super sensitive to a lot of different things. I'm so nervous, I don't even want to eat :(

    • I did not see anyone give ideas about milk-based gravies or sauces yet, but I found a great solution by trial and error because so many recipes I love call for "cream of mushroom" or "cream of chicken" soup. Just melt a little butter with diced onion and put in some rice flour with a bit of milk and heat until bubbly. Add more milk (or chicken/beef stock) a little at a time until you have the amount you need. Salt/pepper as desired. Green bean casserole is still possible! Yay! Crush up some potato chips or those gluten free french fried onions that Aldi sells and it's just like old times before gluten free days:) There's really nothing else to it but if you feel like you need to watch someone do it before you are confident enough to try it on your own, you can see our family's simple little recipe here. Nothing fancy, just some free encouragement...  
    • So my type 1 daughter had her biopsy today and the gi afterwards noticed some redness/inflammation (gastritis?) but also saw the villi.  I guess I was expecting that with her blood test result of her transglutinminase ttg iga of over 100 that she would definitely see some damage.  Her symptoms seem to be ramping up as well.  She took multiple biopsies in several locations and now we wait.  Do you think that there is a chance that with a very positive blood test result she could have a negative biopsy?  My daughter was saying that she would like the positive biopsy to know for sure and to make it easier to stick to being gluten free forever.    This is really hard waiting
    • Avocados are packed with good fats. Aldi and Lidl often have them on offer.  You may be able to tolerate sweet potatos if you're looking for a carb. They're better for you than potatoes, lower glycaemic index and more nutrients. Ask the pharmacy if they can order in the folic acid variant your after or order it online? All the best! Matt
    • The outcome wasn't good, but if the planning had gone on for that long they could've contacted the tavern in advance and either satisfied themselves about their standards or cleared the child to bring in a snack. Instead they've lawyered up and a great many people are going to go through a lot of stress which didn't really need to happen. 
    • As for the ADA - that doesn't mean we have the "right" to eat out for fun.  It has provisions for what is reasonable for the business.  I think it applies better to circumstances where you have no choice but to eat the food - like a college dorm.
