Gluten Free And Still Got Symptoms !

I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right forum ( MODS please feel free to move it)

.

This is a topic I started on the Irish Coeliac Society's Message Board some time ago.

.

This may have been discussed and checked into years ago, I'm not sure as I'm only

posting on this Site for the last few months!

.

If this Topic has been covered before apologies.

.

I have read so many posts by people that have stuck rigidly to the diet and still have

issues so this item maybe something to consider ??.

.

.

People, who are sticking to a gluten-free diet and still suffering some or all of the symptoms, should maybe take a look at food additives in processed and canned products.

.

We all know that modified starch could mean anything if it is not specified.

Some times products use E numbers instead. (E1400 - E1450 should be avoided

I was interested to read your comments about food additives. I was researching non-allergic, non-bacterial chronic rhinitis (which I have along with celiac) and found an article by Prof. Maria Luisa Pacor, MD (Italy) with an abstract about chronic rhinitis stating that food additives (as those you mentioned)"can be considered triggers or aggravating factors, rather than aetiological factors". I also found information about a chemical rhinitis that is aggravated by "biogenic amines, benzoic acids (food additives), and tyramine (found in aged cheeses, etc.) Eliminating these seems to help me but I still have symptoms.

Thanks for posting this, it may be useful for some of us that are still having issues. It should be noted that the E Numbers are used in Europe but not in the US. In the US most of these items would need to be listed by name on the label.

Thanks for your comments. Re E numbers: I found a list at www.naturallyhealthylifestyles.com. It is helpful because it lists the E Number, the name, foods it is used in, and side effects in an easy to read chart. Or, one could just Google it and see what they come up with. I found several sites.

    • My daughter did not test positive for celiac (6 week gluten challenge after being gluten free for 2 months).  So she is technically NCGS. One of her worst symptoms is leg pain. It was a chronic problem when she was 7, to the point where she could no longer play soccer. At 8 we went gluten free because of GI issues and the leg pain went away. It came back with the gluten challenge and again went away when we went off gluten for good after testing. If she gets glutened, that is one of the tell-tale symptoms. She has had to use crutches because the pain is so bad.  And when glutened, the pain usually lasts about 3 days. 
    • Thanks raven and awol--I think she will feel much better hearing that these pains could be due to her celiac.  I don't know about the Epsom salts-never asked-so I definitely will.  I think further compounding it right now is that the doctor did not want her to take ibuprofen for 7 days before the procedure and not sure if Tylenol is allowed but she can't take it because it messes with the continuous glucose monitor that she wears.  Only 4 more days.   I will try to see if my primary can or will run a full celiac panel for me.  Left him a message asking why he didn't test my immunoglobulin a and whether we should be running the full panel.  I have encouraged my husband to test as well--he did just have a colonoscopy and endoscopy last fall--looking for other things but would they have been able to see celiac if there?  He has bad acid reflux and they were just doing the colonoscopy since he turned 50.  My other daughter-who has Hashimoto's-was genetically tested for celiac through Prometheus labs about 6 years ago due to our family history of autoimmune and she was having bad stomach issues--that came back negative.  So I think (hope) she's good?  
    • Omg I love quiche.  https://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/gluten-free-quiche-lorraine/1d20d2e5-e2cd-4b2a-bc83-38bee7736463 i have trail mix for breakfast. Its nutty goodness is high in protein and helps me stay full.  
    • Yes. I'm broken.  Will try the adderal this weekend. And report back. ennis, your stuff sounds great. Will look into rounding up ingredients. I've been on a. about 12-13 years ago for a year or two. Worked fabulous for me. Used to love it. Then one day I decided I wanted to quit it, and I think I went cold turkey and it was hard. Brain had become so used to it. Want to do it differently this time and not take it 7 days a week. With my new job starting mid august I'll need to be absolutely in tip top condition so I'm thinking about taking it just during the week and getting some rest on the weekends. Looking forward to having it help me drop a couple pounds too. Just sitting around at home (and doing a lot of sitting at my pt job this summer) is doing nothing for me, with no motivation to do the exercise bike even.
    • I get muscle spasms and cramps too. When gluten issues flare it gets annoying. As other posters said magnesium and b vitamins help. Of course when so damaged you don't absorb it is a challenge. As Raven said I get unbelievable back pain / muscle fatigue. Upper  back between shoulder blades and lower back which refers the pain to my left hip. Had it 20 plus years. While gluten-free it improved dramatically flooded back with full force rage during my challenge. Huge set back I still am working on 10 months later. Does your Dr allow an Epsom salt baths? I find them beyond helpful for aches/pains after a DC introduced me to them.
