Different Reactions From Different Gluten Sources...

6 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone.

I was just wondering if anyone knows if there is a higher gluten content in wheat, rye or barley? Meaning: will some people react worse to being glutened by barley as opposed to wheat? The last few times I have been glutened it was from barley flavoring and my symptoms weren't very strong. I was wondering if my body is just changing and adjusting (and this is my new reaction) or if there are higher/ lower levels of gluten in the different grains?

Thanks

I'm not sure if there are higher or lower gluten levels in foods but I know that I react much strogner to wheat. When I was eating gluten and I would eat 100% whole wheat pasta or bread I would get ill within 30 minutes and stay ill for a day. I didn't seem to react so quickly or so badly to foods with rye or barley. That's why I thought I might have a wheat allergy like my son but according to the scratch test I do not.

I also react more strongly with wheat but I do react to barley. Barley will also give me metallic taste in my mouth which wheat doesn't. Oats will get me too not as bad as wheat but worse than barley. I haven't tryed anything with rye.

Not only do I react differently, I may have different symptoms that juggle themselves around! I usually always have D but the neurological stuff is a grab bag; mind fog, tremors, stupid brain, mood swings, unjustified anger, clumsiness, joint pain. Any or some of these might occur along with unending hunger and apathy.

Yuck, no wonder I avoid gluten!!

I seem to have differing reactions to differing levels of processing:

straight wheat flour or non distilled vinegar - D, cramping etc and almost right away, mental ones within a few hours or the next day....anxiety, crabbiness, feeling down and unable to sleep very well (back b4 I knew to avoid gluten it would have included occular migraines as well), the more processed the food the longer my reaction time

"filtered" exposure - thru wheat based vodkas etc (yeah, I know they're supposed to be safe but <_< ) nausea and general unwell feeling, this passes more quickly than the other

Thanks for responding guys! I thought i was going crazy. I also had the metalic taste in my mouth! My Dr actually had me do a test for heavy metals in my blood when i mentioned it. All of your symptoms really hit home, its nice to know that when i get craby, anxious etc. not to be too hard on myself-- Im not a bad person, just a Celiac who got glutened.

Thanks

    • George, i am sorry that you are not feeling well!  ☹️  I am not a doctor, but just trying out drugs to stop your symptoms just seems like a band aid  approach.  It sounds like he suspects IBS which is really, in my opinion, "I be stumped".  Has inflammatory bowel disorder (IBD) (more lovely autoimmune disorders) been ruled out?  This includes both Crohn's and Colitis.  My niece was diagnosed with Crohn's finally with a pill camera after all other tests were given.  The damage was not within reach of any scope.  I am just throwing out suggestions.  Hopefully, you and your doctor will figure it out soon!  
    • Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that happens to have a known trigger -- gluten.  Flare-ups develop  (antibodies) causing damage. Not just in the small intestine, but systemically.  One gluten exposure can cause antibodies to increase for days or months!   Antibodies are being measured during the celiac blood tests.   If there is no gluten exposure, there will be no antibodies.  These antibodies can come down in some people in as little as two weeks.  Recommendations require gluten 2 to 4 weeks daily for the biopsies taken via endoscopy in order to be sure to catch damage, but 8 to 12 weeks for the blood tests.   The endoscopy is considered the "gold standard" in helping to diagnose celiac disease, but there are other things that can damage the small intestine.  So, the blood test helps solidify the diagnosis.   So, if you want a good result on your endoscopy, you need to be eating gluten daily for two week prior at a minimum.  I know it is tough and you are feeling sick.  Wish there was a better way to catch active celiac disease.    
    • Hi everyone, Just an update to my situation.  I had thought that I might be getting better since I started adding gluten-free grain back into my diet but I was wrong.  It seems that the Methscopalamine Bromide just delayed the effects, didn't stop them.  I had to stop taking it because one of the side effects is to stop sweating, which I did.  There were times when I felt hot and almost couldn't catch my breath.  Anyway, my doc put me on Viberzi instead.  I took 3 doses, 1 Tuesday evening and then 1 Wednesday morning and then again Wednesday evening.  Each time I took 1, it seemed that about half an hour later I would develop severe abdominal cramping, pain in my neck, shoulders and upper back and a feeling like my insides were on fire.  My face felt like it was hot and tingling.  It wasn't warm to the touch but felt like it to me.  Worse of all is it didn't work anyway, I still had diarrhea.  I stopped taking Viberzi after reading the precautions pamphlet which said, "stop taking Viberzi and tell your doctor if you have abdominal cramping, pain which radiates to your shoulders or upper back."  Go figure.  Anyway, today is 3 weeks straight of diarrhea and still no diagnosis and not sure what he's going to want to do next. George 
    • I'm still really new to all this but is it common to have trouble with sleep? I swear since my symptoms got really bad a few months ago I can't get 1 good nights sleep, like a 5 hour stretch is doing real good. Wake up at 3am wide awake almost every night. Told my doctor and they've recommended melatonin, that doesn't work. Tried chamomile and lavender tea, no help. Tried zzquil, that will knock me out but maybe for like an extra hour then I'm really drowsy the next morning from it. I don't know what to do.
