<_< "O-" This is very interesting. Dr. says celiac but that is based on fantastic response to diet. I could just be gluten intolerant and not actually celiac. She says it doesn't really matter - if I am responding to the diet, and she says that is enough. I also can't tolerate lactose, soy, or potatoes. Am allergic to aspirin, nuts (both), shellfish. The aspirin allergy keeps me from eating fresh fruits and vegetables because of the salycylic acid. I also have lupus. But, it is interesting to me that part of the trouble could be my blood type. My ds is O+ and he is also gluten intolerant.

Hi, I am O negative, and probably celiac. I wonder if there is any correlation with gene type for celiac? I am double DQ2.

I am A- and I have celiac.

I've had one healthy pregnancy before I found out I had celiac. And one miscarriage since going gluten free.

I also have mitral valve prolapse.

And I have low platelets.

Hi, Everyone:

I am new here, and this is my first topic ever posted! Wheeeee!

OK, here is a theory:

I have read on the Internet that a large number of celiacs in the U.K. have Rh-Negative blood types. I was fascinated, because I am with type O-Neg blood.

It is claimed that 20% of everyone in the U.K. is Rh-Neg anyway, and in the U.S., it is closer to 15% of the national population.

People with rare blood types are usually hypersensitive to things (like gluten/gliadin), so if any one out there is Rh-Neg, please RSVP! I want to see if there is a connection.....

Thanks!

My nutritionist told me O- blood is the oldest blood type therefore it is a blood type predisposed to the hunter gatherer type diet that doesn't not include wheat/grains. She seemed to know what she was talking about...

I'm 0-. I have Celiac. My husband is A- and is a celiac. That's all I know. :)

....................................................................................................

.........

WOW, I wish I was dating a Celiac llike me (or married to one)! This kind of situation would make life SO MUCH EASIER for Girls Like Me, rather than beng with some slob who drinks BEER or SCOTCH every day! (Been There, Done That.)

I now point-blank tell guys that if they want to date me, kiss me, and/or get all silly & romantic with me physically, then they CANNOT drink beer or grain-based alcohol when we are together. I am DEAD SERIOUS about this, too! They can drink all of the wine, tequila and potato-based vodka they want (like the fabulous "CHOPIN" vodka, which is both potato-based AND organic), but nothing else, otherwise they will make me have a gluten reaction.

I simply will not make out with or have sex with a man that will cause me to have a gluten reaction, due to what HE consumes and retains in his body.....

I am totally allergic to men that drink beer, scotch, and any other grain-based alcohol (adult beverages). Celiac girls (like me) ESPECIALLY cannot even tolerate exposure to the semen from guys like this either, which I will explain more about after you continue reading this......

No kidding, I finally discovered this after YEARS of trying to figure out WHY I STILL had DH all over my face and these outrageous rashes all over my body while dating/being with macho beer & scotch drinkers.

My discovery happened because my (former) live-in/out boyfriend of 10 years was drinking beer and/or scotch daily.

Here's how it works for me..... this may not be the same for everyone, but still, I would like you to consider this as a possibility for you if you have celiac problems and date a man or woman who drinks beer and grain alcohol beverages on a regular basis.....

If I make out with a guy, or get all physically silly & romantic with a man who has been drinking beer or grain-based booze, I will later on (usually within 24-72 hours later) break out in a weird splotchy rash on my arms, legs and torso, AND get all kinds of quasi-DH eruptions all over my face.

Believe me, this took YEARS to finally figure this situation out.

I am a seriously CAREFUL celiac, and do not make mistakes when it comes to any exposure to gluten that I would be personally responsible for.

Still, I kept having gluten skin problems for many years while I was dating a fellow who drank beer daily.....

It just NEVER occurred to me that being with someone- as in romantically- who indulges in gluten products will also cause ME to have a "reaction."

Without going into personal details that would make you blush, I will now state that I "know a girl" who is also a Celiac, and "she" gets a "problem" from her sex life when she is exposed to the semen of a man that drinks beer and/or grain alcohol. This girl will experience PIV (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease), along with horrible cystitis, if she has sexual relations with a man that drinks beer/grain alcohol liquids.

OK, this is just me, but all of you other girls & guys out there...... consider this as a possibility if you do not feel well, and your partner is guzzling beer or grain alcohol.

I would NOT waste my time writing this message to the general public unless I was mega-serious in sharing this information with Celiacs Like Us.

The prevention of gluten exposure is a pain in the @ss to regulate, and I want to help ease the pain we all suffer by asking you to consider that those around you may be a possible gluten exposure factor in your life.....

CONCLUSION: you may be doing the Right Thing, but is your spouse/significant other also doing the same?

So far, I have met only ONE man who has agreed to my "No Gluten" dating & dietary laws, and he is a precious, adorable nerdy IT guy who also believes in organic foods. I am lucky, I guess. He acts like he is GOMEZ ADDAMS when he is with me, so I have no reason to complain, I guess.....

Ruth,

Glad to hear you have found someone who treats you well after so many years with your former boyfriend. For those who may still be with someone who drinks daily...a word to the wise...they are alcoholics and you should spare yourself the pain. Remove yourself from the situation until they have their drinking under control. No one needs to drink daily. This is a form of self medication.

For the record, I am a celiac with O positive blood type.

Happy Holidays!

I see this thread's been inactive for awhile, but I had to add myself to the list. I am A+ and gluten-intolerant, as is my mom who is A-. A lot of the people who have responded who are Rh positive and intolerant or celiac seem to be within a generation of someone who is Rh negative. That looks like a potential correlation to me.

I'm A- and recently diagnosed with celiac disease.

Very interesting. I'm O- type. I have not been diagnosed with celiac, but suspect that I have it. I tested "VERY HIGH" with genetic testing. My heritage is Irish, German and Swedish. My whole mother's side is food intolerant to some degree, but not bad enough to want to see doctors. I don't know my parents blood type. I have autoimmune thyroid disorder and PCOS. I've had neuromusclar problems recently. I always wondered what my blood type might mean for my health?

I am O - and a' very senstive DH Celiac'. I like the idea that it's the oldest blood type and would therefore have likely been that of the hunter gatherers.... I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian and have been for about the last 25 years.

    • I was browsing on QVC this morning and found they have a bread machine on sale.  It has a gluten free setting. Remember someone asking about them not too long ago so thought I would post a link to the item. Be sure to read the questions and answers at the bottom of the ad.  It is on sale for about $100 http://www.qvc.com/Breadman-2lb-Multi-Function-Stainless-Steel-Breadmaker.product.K44909.html  
    • Well, as a celiac the gluten causes your own body to flare with antibodies and mistakenly attack your body most people the intestines. (I also have it attack my entire nervous system and brain) Your antibodies can stay flared for weeks to a month or so with just a crumb, so cheating is not a option. The damage to your intestines will cause malabsorption for one, second the damage leads to food intolerance issues random allergies, the more damage and longer you go the narrower your list of foods you body can put up with will normally get, These can go away as you heal by the way in most cases, they will also come and go. I had the lettuce intolerance crop up for a month or two. I still have a whole list of NO foods you can check my profile to keep it simple. This disease if untreated can lead to other autoimmune disease, cancer, lymphoma, and we had a case were one member ignored the diet and had to get a emergency colostomy and a section of their intestines removed. Side thoughts, my body works best with fresh cooked veggies to the point of being mushy, I also find taking digestive enzymes makes it so I do not vomit. I take 2-3x times the dose on the enzymes and it works great. (Jarrow Vegetarian Enzymes Plus, and Papaya Super Enzymes, I take extra bromine when using vegan protein powder shakes.) As you heal there will be some wonderful options open up in the gluten free processed foods department, you will probably lose some of those veggie food intolerance issues after a year or so normally. I have lost a few myself and enjoy some I used to not be able to eat. I will give you the newbie 101 list and a list of potential food alternatives that might give you some hope to browse through.
      https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/

        I also post some great recipes in the recipe section.
    • Solid advice. Wish that more people would consider that this might be necessary for some and not entirely paranoid. Could very well be airborne, but most likely culprit is something you're eating. That said, baking, construction/open drywall, farms/animal food and bulk/flour aisles in grocery stores are legitimate worries. I was recently having frustrating problems with random but minor flare-ups, and have eliminated almost all packaged food (even gluten-free) for a bit. It has helped tremendously. I hope that perhaps my sensitivity levels will calm down in a few years, but not being itchy and scabby is worth almost any cumbersome restriction. I think for me the problem has largely been to do with the use of oats in many dedicated factories (even gluten-free oats make me very, very sick). I came to this when lodging a complaint/notifying a company that I'd had an issue with one of their GFCO certified products. I figured that mistakes could happen, and could not imagine anything else I'd eaten that day could be a culprit (had only eaten veggies/rice/meat) so I contacted them to report it. Their response made me quite sure that the lot my food came from was fine from a legal/GFCO gluten-free perspective, but revealed that they make all their gluten-free products on the same line - which include granolas, oat flour etc. When I investigated it a bit more, I realized that many of the gluten-free products that I suspected were causing me problems (but had no real basis for why) were all made by companies that also make lots of gluten-free oat products. Previously, I had only avoided gluten-free products that contained oats as an explicit ingredient, and had never considered that the residues from gluten-free oats could be problematic. Unfortunately, now that gluten-free oats have been legalized in Canada, it is very difficult to find companies that do not use them in some capacity, which is why I axed most of the processed gluten-free stuff. Presumably, because the oats are considered gluten-free, there is no reason to clean the line or employ any allergen food safety practices from the company's perspective. While this may not be a concern outside of those who are super sensitive, it might worth considering if you are still having problems or have a known issue with oats. At the very least, avoiding most processed gluten-free foods (breads/flours/pastas/baked goods) seems to have helped me a lot, even if minor contamination with oats is not the true culprit. I would vouch for mostly sticking with rice, dry beans, root veggies and fresh corn (from the cob) as complex carbohydrate sources for a bit, even though it's a bit inconvenient.   
    • So I previously went to Buffalo Wild Wings and they gave me the gluten-free menu. I asked the waitress if anything is mixed into the fryers somehow with the ultimate nachos, since I read up that they don't switch out fryers for celiac customers, which is fine. She claimed there's no cross contamination happening there, as nothing goes in the fryers. I went back today to find out by the manager that they apparently deep-fry their corn tortilla chips from scratch, so I cancelled my order. But after rethinking, I asked if I could order everything except for the tortilla chips. She came back and told me there's yeast in one of the sauces for the nachos. Yeast is a toss-up, but it seemed to me like they were trying to get me to not order. Either BWW's is lying about their gluten-free menu, or the management was doing everything in their power to prevent me from eating there in order to not have a potential lawsuit. Has anyone felt this way when going to restaurants?
    • Hi everyone! I'm obviously new to the forums, but I'm also new to the idea of celiac/gluten free/etc.  Lemme give you the Cliff Notes version of my journey: 1992: I'm diagnosed with CFS/ME. It sucks and I'm tired and sick all the time. 2014: I'm still tired and sick all the time, so I decide to become a vegetarian. Maybe that'll help, right? I began getting deathly ill when I ate. Vomiting and diarrhea, everything I eat seems to be a problem.  I go to a doctor who runs a million tests. Nothing turns up. In among those tests is a celiac panel which has this result: no antibody detected and no serological evidence of celiac disease. No cause is ever found. I continue to suffer. Later in 2014: I notice that my stomach issues are triggered every time I eat a raw vegetable. I can eat bread or pasta no problem. Fake chicken? Great. Have a salad? I'm dying. This is a problem, as I'm a vegetarian. I nix the fresh veggies and continue to live my life. 2015: I'm diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I realize that the problem with vegetables is worse than I thought. I can no longer eat cooked spinach, can't have lettuce on my sandwich, and stealing a single slice of cucumber set my stomach on edge for days. I'm becoming hypersensitive to veggies in food and protecting myself from their evil influence; my stomach thanks me. 2017: After a relative peaceful period, the stomach issues are back, worse. So I go to a new doctor (I've moved) and he recommends a colonoscopy and EGD (no labs). This was done yesterday. The full results will of course have to wait for the biopsies to be examined, but apparently there is scalloping "through the entire duodenum".  Doc told my partner that he believes I have celiac and discharged me with orders to go gluten free. Now I'm sitting here alternately considering drinking alone in the dark and throwing things--I guess I'm wavering between the stages of depression and anger on my trip through grief for my lost favorite foods. But here's where the confusion comes in...everything I'm seeing says that I should give up bread and eat more veggies, but veggies make me sick. Does anyone else have this reaction to vegetables? Meanwhile I'm thinking back to the labs done in 2014 and wondering if its possible to have a negative test and still be positive for celiac? Also, what actually happens if you DON'T go gluten free?
