Quercetin

Quercetin is also a mast cell stabilizer, and it might have beneficial effects similar to cromolyn - helping people to eat foods without having a reaction, and preventing reactions to new foods.

It sounds like you are saying these things are a way for Celiacs to eat gluten?   I would think the Celiac Centers would recommend them if that is true.

Not at all.  I'm talking about the reactions to non-gluten foods. 

Mast cell stabilizers likely do nothing to block the autoimmune process that is triggered by gluten.

Good to clarify that.  This is a Celiac Forum, and someone might think you were suggesting it for them. 

 

Carry on.  :D

Mast cell stabilizers might prevent the obvious reaction that a lot of celiacs have when they eat gluten.  Celiacs have told me their reactions to gluten are similar to my reactions to many foods, so what decreases the symptoms for me, would likely also decrease celiacs' symptoms after eating gluten. 

However, this does NOT mean that the autoimmune process in celiac disease would be stopped by a mast cell stabilizer!

It's tempting to conclude that if you don't have obvious symptoms after eating a food, it's OK.  But that is clearly not true.

I understand what you are saying, as even the Zyrtec lowers my reaction, when I have them. I have problems with some additives/yeasts/something but it's always less when I'm on a blocker than when I'm not. I'm sure a proper mast cell stabilizer would really take the edge off the reaction. I can't test gluten vs zrytec because I haven't been eating gluten so long I no longer have antibodies to it.

 

You don't need to look very hard to see that immune blockers are effective against celiac disease as you can see here http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10848661 I bet you could go on cyclosporine and eat as much bread as you want, but the cyclosporine would kill you quicker than the gluten anyway :P! but it just proves it's your own immune system doing you in.

"You don't need to look very hard to see that immune blockers are effective against celiac disease"

 

Not a good thing to assume!  Just because something reduces the SYMPTOMS of gluten reactions, does not mean it's stopping the basic process.  The paper you linked to, does not imply that either. 

Celiac disease has too many serious consequences to take the risk of eating gluten.  Unless you're very old and figure you'll die soon anyway ...

 

Also, a mast cell stabilizer lessens reactions that happen via the mast cells.  But the immune process in celiac disease starts through IgA antibodies as I understand - and who knows if a mast cell stabilizer would affect that. 

 

Anyway, my reactions to non-gluten foods are lessened by cromolyn.  Which suggests these reactions do start with mast cells and something similar to standard allergies is going on.

I received my 100 capsules of Ketoferin, I've taken two so far.. gees it makes you sleepy, they say you gets used to it though. It certainly lets you eat without any gut pain and inflammation though. I'll let you know how it's going in a week or so

You make very valid points here.  Cromolyn is used in eye drops also for allergy related eye problems to stabilize mast cells and I personally use Quercitin for my seasonal allergies.  I have only been taking it for about 2 months but my reactions are less intense and they do not last as long.  I never get sinus infections either.  I can only assume it is working because this week has had some of the most intense weather for me, allergy wise, and I am not doing too bad.  A little tired but not too bad.  It is interesting that it could also be used for stabilizing food reactions.

    • LOL, re: trousers vs. pants.   Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front.   I also read that Vit D helps digestion;  can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin.   My Dr. just told me to resume 2000 IU per day, and I do think it's made a slight difference. Have also read that bone broth is helpful, its gelatinous nature supposedly coats the stomach.   I know bone broth has not been formally studied much, but again, probably can't hurt and might help.
    • I'd try the gluten free diet for a few months to see if that helps at all. Can't hurt. If it doesn't help I'd try a low FODMAP meat and veggies diet.
    • A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be taking percations goods, I still use freezer paper for a clean safe work surface even in my gluten free home lol. Anyway top things to look for and consider are magnesium and B vitamin deficiencies . I take my in a drink to avoid pills and the sublingual forms are more easily absorbed by the body. I normally suggest 2 brand or forms of magnesium and you need to find the one that works for you there. They are Natural Vitality Calm, a magnesium citrate in a powder, you add it to a warm drink let it fizz and drink it. Magnesium citrate can be a bit harsh on some peoples guts, I suggest you start off with 1/4 tsp and work your way up to the full dose over a week, if you get D then your taking too much and need to back down or the citrate version might be too rough for you. In which case I suggest Doctors Best, bit more off tasting and mixes best with a juice but with the powdered form of it you do not have to worry about digestion issues, I just found the citrate to seem to help with my nerve issues more. B Vitamins, I take Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological Support, I take 1 tbsp of each 2-3 times a day before meals. Really helps with everything and being in liquid forms I just add to tea and drink it. There are many other vitamins to look into and we each have ones we have issues with more then others, getting tested might help, NOTE magnesium and B vitamins sometimes show normal but you will still find you need supplementation...bit of a odd thing I found. Yeah the neurological effects are  huge thing with me as my issues with this disease cause my immune system to attack my nervous system and brain....accumulated brain and nerve damage over the years. Had a whole mental trauma issues with them, my gastro issues back then were mostly just constipation. NOW days I get the Vomiting, D, gas, bloat, and then constipation for a week along with neurological issues which NOW if I get exposed to eating straight gluten (happened twice in 3 years to this extent) I loose motor control and collapse unable to move, normally while vomiting violently to the point of blood coming up (this was what happened last June 2016 after eating out).  
    • Started thinking the only cereal I allow in my house is Vans, they have a cinnamon one that is like a captain crunch with cinnamon, and a strawberry O type that I keep in stock for a friend that comes over sometimes and for my cousins littler girls who I end up babysitting sometimes. There was a coconut flake (corn flake knock) off I used to eat, but the company discontued it. There is a stuff called progranola from julians bakery made without grains that looks great but is a bit expensive at $9 a bag.
    • I would add your pharmacist to that that list and double check when getting a script filled that they checked to make sure it is safe. You will also need to tell any romatic partners as if they are gluten consumers they should brush their teeth before any kissing.
