I Can't Tell You What Is In This, But It Is Safe For You!

This is about Super sensitivity and not just to gluten;

 

The hygienist used this line on me once.  She felt she could use her regular tooth polish on me as she uses it on everyone else.  No need to read ingredients, she doesn't know what is in it, but it was safe.  I reacted. Next time, I used pomace powder only and had no reaction.

 

I have skin reactivity too, so I went over ingredients in ultra-sound gel.  They did know what was in it, but not where everything was derived.  I still need to look up FDA Blue #1.  Also the ingredient listed was tea.  I have a problem with black tea, but no indication what kind of tea it was!?

 

I asked about the adhesives in strips to hold EKG wires in place.  They were clueless to what they had in there.  A celiac told me that I should be okay, because she didn't react.  But when I asked if she reacted to contact she said "no".  They assured me that I would be okay since they have had no complaints.  Hmm

 

In the end, I think I am having screening tests regardless- hoping that a little more bloating and reaction won't be a big deal.  I am hoping that skin contact won't be too much of a problem for a one time deal

 

For all who have a problem with corn:  I saw information on the internet about all of the names for corn and its products.  They included Dextrose and Glucose which are in IV solutions.  I heard there is IV fluid without it, but am unsure of its name.

 

I can't understand the" it is safe for you attitude."  I especially wonder about me, when I jump on board thinking that it can't be too bad.

I can't help but wonder if these are minor allergies rather than intolerences or celiac due to the skin reactivity.

 

To be fair, not everyone knows what is in the items that are used, especially things like the adhesive strips.

Yes, it may be allergies, however, my IgE level is minimal which the MD says means that I am not an allergenic person.

Life is difficult when you react to more things than the typical celiac.  You have to stick to what you know works for you.  You have to research ingredients before trying things.  You have to minimize risk as much as you can.  You have to not live in fear despite all that.  You have to try not to feel like you are crazy and overreacting.  When you get sick, you have to be patient until you feel better again.  You need to learn from the experience so that you don't repeat it.  It's not easy.  It is well worth the effort.

    • Insurance is a pain! But, one of the interesting things about the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) is that it set individual out of pocket maximums. This year it is $7100. I realize that it is a HUGE amount of money, but if you started to pursue the work up this year and don't delay, you could get everything done (scope, labs, doc visits) and know the answer in a couple of months.  The most you would pay is $7100 for everything. Most hospitals have payment plans and some offer discounts if you pay cash. It's just a thought, but sometimes getting all your healthcare needs answered at once can relieve a lot of anxiety and be more affordable in the long run. I wish you luck. I hate insurance issues.
    • Hi all, I know this strand is a little old, but I just joined and have a related concern and wanted to express it in the right place. My period has been changing over the past two years or so. I used to be like clockwork, every 28 days. Now they come a little earlier and don't last as long, or they stop and restart, sometimes with some mid-cycle spotting. I've also been fatigued but that could have to do with work (I run my own business and teach on the side). I didn't make any connection with my celiac DX until yesterday when I was reading about peri-menopause. This month I got the heavy feeling in my legs and the sense that it was coming but... it never came. I thought I had a long time before I had to worry about the change! I'm 42. I've never missed a period, even when I was super-anemic. Ugh. Fortunately my mom said she never had any truly uncomfortable symptoms and she (still!) has the bone density of a much younger person. Hopefully I'll have the same experience. My yearly GYN appt. is coming up in July. Should I just wait and see, then say something to my doc then? Thanks in advance for any light you could shed on this.
    • You would think that there is enough people out there, people with celiac disease, that we'd be able to push for a better standard than 20ppm. The problem is the FDA. Too much lobbying involved. It's no different than the fight people are having with Monsanto. I hear that there are several medications that are showing promise in Canada who I think also has a better standard than us.(not positive about that though)
    • Make sure that you ask the doctor how long she has to stop the supplements before you have her levels tested and be sure to take them all with you when you have the appointment so the doctor knows what she is taking.
    • Talk to your doctor. With your family history and symptoms he/she may be able to diagnose based on resolution of your symptoms and family history. Also check with your local hospital if it has it's own lab.  Mine covered any labs at a greatly reduced cost based on a sliding fee scale. Did you have an MRI before they did the spinal? Celiacs with neuro impact will have white spots on an MRI that resemble the lesions found with MS. Many neuro doctors don't know this. I went through what you did and they did a spinal on me also based on the MRI results. If my doctor had know what the UBOs (unidentified bright objects) were I would have been diagnosed a couple years sooner than I was. Make sure if you supplement that you ask your doctor which ones you need to stop taking and for how long before they do a blood test to check levels. Sublingual B12 is a good idea when we have nervous system issues, but needs to be stopped for at least a week for an accurate blood level on testing. I hope you get some answers and feel better soon.
