Hey all!

I was just wondering if anyone else's allergies coincide with a vaccination?

My allergies developed shortly after a trip to Thailand for which I was required to take 3 shots for hepatitis prevention.

I have been eating gluten free to manage a rash and digestive issues that developed shortly after the trip over 2 years ago, but still can't seem to get it 100% under control. Always assumed that I must some how mistakenly be getting glutened. Just found that vaccinations can cause allergies and was looking for patent info on the vaccine and it looks like they use yeast in the shot. Now I am thinking I may be reacting to the yeast in the gluten free foods.

I am 26 and experienced 23 completely allergy free years of life so I would really like to find out what caused this!

Have you been evaluated to see if you might have picked up any bacterial or parasitic infection or something else while you were there? If your doctor hasn't explored this possibility with blood work and stool testing you should ask the doc to do so.

Was checked for parasites. I have a "gluten sensitivity". On top of my own regular doctor I've seen a dermatologist and an allergy specialist, each of which gave me 2 prescriptions for a total of SIX!!! Just to treat symptoms, no one seems to wonder WHY I would suddenly develop this. :S

I read recently that immunizations for children could be causing autoimmune disorders later in life. "Have we traded measles and mumps for leukemia, cancer, multiple sclerosis and allergies?" Stuff about peanut allergies developing because peanut oil is used as a base in vaccines. In Israel no one has peanut allergies, they have actually developed sesame allergies instead because they use sesame oil as a base there.... Apparently yeast is used in the hepatitis vaccine so I'm thinking I could have developed yeast allergy/intolerance as well because of this which is why I still get symptoms sometimes regardless of eating gluten free as I do eat gluten free breads.

To be honest I'd look far farther afield, pestsides, pollution, GM, the whole shebang, we are eating stuff that isn't natural etc etc. There is so much that could be going on with all this autoimmune stuff!

From what I've read, all vaccines are made using chicken eggs, and those sensitive to eggs can have all sorts of bad reactions to them. Not to mention that vaccines also often include mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, and a number of other questionable things.

But if your allergies involve the immune system (and I'm not sure if they ever wouldn't), it might be tough to "turn it off". Just as the auto-immune reactions to gluten apparently never go away, in that once you're Celiac, gluten will for ever be an offender.

Not saying there isn't any hope though, and I do hope you find the answer.

Anyway, what others have said about picking up something on your trip does make sense to me as well. Just not sure what that could be. A tick bite maybe? Is there Lyme disease in Thailand? That's something which most doctors in the US aren't particularly knowledgeable about. Not sure about elsewhere.

Well I was in Thailand for a month, and their food is a LOT more fresh and healthy than ours. And when I came back I was under a lot of pressure and stress and pretty much lived off of Burger King and A&W. Maybe I just crashed the system. :S

Don't think it's lyme disease as I don't have the bullseye rash, but there are 70 some other symptoms and I could match up with some of them! LoL! Geez.

Don't discount Lyme on account of not noticing a rash. My grandmother never noticed a bullseye rash but sure enough after months of suffering so bad she couldn't care for herself let alone her husband a blood test came back positive. A few courses of antibiotics and her symptoms cleared right up. Not everyone gets the bullseye rash and it wouldn't be noticed on your scalp. It's something you might have to push really hard to be tested for but hopefully you have a good relationship with your doctor and they'll take your concerns seriously.

According to Wiki, lyme is present in Thailand:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyme_disease

Asia

B. burgdorferi sensu lato-infested

You really need a LLMD (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor) if you in fact are dealing with lyme disease because most GP's know very little about it (kind of like celiac :P )

Hmmm. Vaccines. Evil?

Smallpox was deadly. It has been eradicated worldwide. How? Vaccines.

Polio used to cripple many young people. It no longer does. Why? Vaccines.

Rubella (German Measles) used to cause birth defects when pregnant women were infected. No more. Why? Vaccinations.

Mumps used to be a common childhood disease, but caused serious reproductive issues in males after puberty. It is no longer an issue, due to effective vaccinations.

Measles? The jury is still out on the long-term impact, but incidence is way down. How come? Vaccination.

Harrumph. Vaccinate me.

Is it allergies you have or celiac? Or an intolerance?

Just a thought -- have you had a follow-up blood test/endoscopy to check for dietary compliance? I.e., whether or not hidden gluten is getting in somehow?

I need to have vaccinations before going on a humanitarian trip to Kenya. I am Celiac -- and so got on here to see if there was any info regarding gluten being IN vaccinations. Does anyone know? I don't have a doctor I feel like actually 'gets' Celiac Disease -- often feel I'm on my own. Look forward to the day I have a doctor that does! Thanks for any info. This is what I'll need:

Yellow fever

Hepatitis A

Typhoid

Hepatitis B (series of 3 injections

I am not aware of any injectable substance that contains gluten. That includes every vaccine commonly in current use. Gluten acts as a thickener, and that is definitely not something you want in an injectable substance.

The Sabin oral polio vaccine is gluten-free, but is less commonly used than the Salk injectable one.

Allergies are genetic. There is no indication anywhere in reliable medical journals that vaccines have anything to do with allergy development. Antidotally, I am and know many parents who don't vax who have children with allergies.

I am (third, fourth, sixth ing) that you may have picked something up on your trip.

Hope you get something figured out.

    • Feeneyja and Captain NCGS, and Ironictruth It could be SIBO or it could be NCGS as Captain NCGS pointed out. see this research that matches your 84% of SIBO patients. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24058/1/Large-Number-of-Irritable-Bowel-Syndrome-Patients-Sensitive-to-Gluten/Page1.html Below I summarize their findings I quote “nearly 84% of the gluten- free placebo group showed a significant improvement in symptoms compared to just under 26% for the gluten consuming group.  This study confirms that a large number of patients diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome are sensitive to gluten.  The team (of doctors) suggest that the term of IBS might be misleading (you think) and may change or delay an “effective and well-targeted treatment strategy in gluten sensitive patients”. “ This is in IBS patients already who fulfilled Rome III (lesion) criteria.  They should at least be considered Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity (NCGS) but that would be to admit NCGS is a real condition. If you are having NCGS symptom’s (Marsh Lesion) aka Rome III lesions then why is the diagnosis not NCGS instead of IBS?  The problem is most NCGS (apparently 84%) is misdiagnosed as IBS in a large number of cases or possibly SIBO in your case Feeneyja. Even when 84 % of those with IBS show sensitivity to gluten the diagnosis of Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity is not confirmed by a simple gluten antibody test and people  consider Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitive (NCGS at least in the medical community apparently) a myth rather they diagnosis someone’s digestive problems with IBS of an unknown cause instead of admitting gluten is the trigger thus allowing them to avoid what is considered a mythical diagnosis to some in the medical community. By all means if  you have been given an IBS or SIBO diagnosis insist at the least on a gluten antibody test and you may save yourself many years’ of suffering before the doctor’s figure out that Gluten is the trigger then you have hope for recovery if you get the right disease. And I don't mean NCGS. Because even this too is confusing low stomach acid I believe with IBS, NCGS and even SIBO. See my posterboy blog post about why  I think this is. JMG aka Captain NCGS I referenced the Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC)  research on NCGS that I think proves your point and mine. here is the care2 article that I think summarizes it well. http://www.care2.com/causes/new-study-confirms-existence-of-non-celiac-gluten-sensitivity.html NCGS is on the "Celiac Spectrum". quoting dr. hyman from the huffpost 5+ years ago and still people seem them as different diseases (or at least deny the existence of the one over the other) http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-mark-hyman/gluten-what-you-dont-know_b_379089.html "When you get these tests, there are a few things to keep in mind. In light of the new research on the dangers of gluten sensitivity without full blown celiac disease, I consider any elevation of antibodies significant and worthy of a trial of gluten elimination. Many doctors consider elevated anti-gliadin antibodies in the absence of a positive intestinal biopsy showing damage to be “false positives.” That means the test looks positive but really isn’t significant. We can no longer say that. Positive is positive and, as with all illness, there is a continuum of disease, from mild gluten sensitivity to full-blown celiac disease. If your antibodies are elevated, you should go off gluten and test to see if it is leading to your health problems." and the columbia research bears this out. ironictruth you want to catch it at the NCGS stage before it becomes full blown (villi burned to the ground) Celiac disease. You are right to run from the burning house (antibodies) causing you a weak but "positive" diagnosis. This concept of the biopsy "proven" diagnosis is archaic at best and barbaric at worse in this age of serology proven diagnosis of NCGS before the villi burns to the ground so to speak. see this online article by dr. rodney ford that discusses why this is today. http://drrodneyford.com/extra/documents/236-no-gold-standard.html and he too (though in minority) is forward enough thinking to diagnose his patients with serology alone. Why would we use a standard 60+ years old when modern medicine can diagnose the disease much better and much, much sooner than what till there is stage 3 marsh lesions. The dgp test you had can diagnose it the intraepithelial lymphocytes (IEL)  stage. That is good news.  The villi are already smoking (using my analogy) of a burning house from antibodies attacking the body. Problem is and I mean this as a complement to SIBO girl and Captain NCGS (I was this in an article about the ZIKA outbreak patients talking how much more they (those affected by the disease) knew than their doctor's who where treating them at the time) we (us) have become doctor's without diplomas'. One of us each has become an expert at recognizing SIBO, NCGS and Pellagra. The question is which one is right??? Maybe we are all right by degrees. I believe NCGS can be confused for SIBO. But I also believe and the research confirms it in my mind that low stomach acid mimics many of the symptom's of both SIBO and NCGS. So that tells me there is still a disease not yet correctly identified. To me the disease that answer's the most questions in my mind is Pellagra. Ironictruth, Freneyja, JMG taking a b-complex can disprove or prove this theory. here is the full paper by Prousky. http://orthomolecular.org/library/jom/2001/articles/2001-v16n04-p225.shtml decide for yourself but people routinely get better in 3 months time of taking  niacinamide 2 to 3 times daily or a b-complex and niacinamide 3/day for 3 months. The dosage does not matter.  It is the frequency. And a month will be enough to see improvement (100 count bottle).  I used to recommend to my friends a 100 count bottle because it was the most common way to find either Niacin/Niacinamide or a b-complex but when I found out your body could store 3 months worth in the liver and my experience with b-2 (riboflavin) and angular cheilitis (look it up on google images if you don't know what it is) for years probably 5+ I could not get rid of it for nothing. And I took b-2 (for a 100 count round) once before but learned b-vitamins needed to be taken frequently for best effect. So I bought a 300 count bottle (3 months worth) and took them (b-2/riboflavin) 2 to 3 day and the angular cheiliitis (leaking lips, cracked fissures at the side of the mouth) and it was nice and crusty went away and they have never come back since. but this was after I took the B-3 Niacinamide for a couple months firsts then I was able to absorb the b-2 (riboflavin) now and I put this condition in remission (i did not say cure) because if I get low again it might come back but remission. The same thing happened to my GI problems associated with NCGS (serology positive celiac diagnosis) without a biopsy proven (thank God) diagnosis. And that is my story. I would suggest jmg, feeneyja and you too too ironictruth buy a b-complex and see if a couple three months regimen might help put your GI symptom's in remission. we already know from research 5+ years ago that b-vitamins help celiac's with their well being. https://www.celiac.com/articles/21783/1/B-Vitamins-Beneficial-for-Celiacs-on-Gluten-Free-Diet/Page1.html quoting "For 6 months, patients received daily doses of either a placebo, or of B vitamins in the amount of 0.8 mg folic acid, 0.5 mg cyanocobalamin and 3 mg pyridoxine." They summarize quoting "These improvements, the normalization of tHcy levels, together with the substantial increase in well-being, led the research team to conclude that people living gluten-free with long-term celiac disease do indeed benefit from daily supplemental doses of vitamin B, and that doctors should consider advising the use of B vitamins supplements for these patients." So I am just saying what the doctor's recommend when recommending Niacinamide for your GI problems that Pellagra could be mimicking (masking the true cause) hence the 58% of celiac also have pellagra (that a majority) of Celiac's also are known to have. I am not a doctor.  But You can be a professor though with a masters so while I do preach Pellagra as a co-morbid condition of NCGS/Celiac disease it is only because the doctor's with diploma's research bears this out. So I try and make more people aware of this fact. (no I do not have  a master's either though a friend once said who has a masters said my research would qualify me if I had taken the courses) (And yes I know B-3 was not studied in this paper) but maybe now is the time to point out it should bee! Or SIBO girl, and Captain NCGS you can try it (B-3) for yourselves and see if it helps you the way it did the Pellagra kid/posterboy. If you want to study this topic more I summarized many of thoughts in this posterboy post https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/blogs/entry/2103-why-and-how-pellagra-is-often-confused-with-celiac-disease-andor-other-gidigestive-problems-the-science-of-pellagra-a-hidden-epidemic-in-the-21st-century-presentingrevealing-as-ncgs-andor-possbily-celiac-disease/ I wrote a blog post that also said "I had Celiac disease but developed Pellagra" but I really think it is the other way around. (it is linked in the above post) if you want to read it there so I won't post it again. I was a pellagrain who was diagnosed first as a celiac.  The same way a SIBO might first be diagnoses as a IBS or NCGS patient.  Or the way a NCGS is first diagnosed as a IBS patient 84% of the time. Remission is possible I believe if and when you find the right/correct disease. And any of these GI conditions can be confused for the other and SIBO girl and Captain NCGS makes good points. But it seems to me Pellagra can be confused for not only the SIBO, NCGS, but if the research is right 58% (the majority) of Celiac's and it is easily reversible in 3 months time. You will not know if you are not willing to try it. **** this is not medical advice just deep research and my own experience with taking Niacinamide. But I will say  I am not the only one who has been helped on this board taking Vitamin B-3. I want you Iroinctruth, Feeneyja, Jmg to be the next ones. I know this post is way too long as usual but I had a lot of ground to cover. quoting a friend 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • After my crash and burn gluten challenge of 2016, I wander off yet again Into the land of eastern and alternative medicine to heal. While I am grateful to many (not all) western medicine  Dr s of the past , for the past 2 decades the ones who give me relief for my lifetime ails are the alternative/eastern practitioners. I'm not starting a debate as both branches have their strengths, often the shame is they are seperated in healthcare, for likely humanity and public health imo would be best served by their encouraged collaboration/mutual recognition,but alas not my problem to solve. Much bigger then me and quite frankly, I'm too busy healing to tackle that mountain. Regardless, I now have "shoes that fit my carpet bag " of decades of multiple misdiagnosis /undiagnosis collection. They can be combined and labeled celiac and fibromyalgia. I was shocked at first at the news, I consider those really serious. Is AWOL really that ill? I've read up more  on both disciplines descriptons etc for these conditions, I'm in shock for the "shoes" fit perfectly . I know based on western test results I'm far from textbook/ gold standard celiac (but I failed to get past day 6 of my gluten challenge -likely speaks for itself) and fibromyalgia is quite demeaned/dismissed from my past knowledge amongst the western medicine world and greater society. (Friends /family in western medical fields) Is this still the case? My lifetime gi issues, the 30 plus years multiple chemical sensitivities ( go back to childhood-I keep very close to the vest), 20 plus years symptoms of muscle issues / myalgia, now have the names of celiac & fibromyalgia. Mixture of feelings of relief to be recognized, but also knowing my named illnesses are likely not recognized or are minimised by my western medicine trained family and friends and greater society. Can anyone offer some encouragement to help me cope at this time of healing? My accupuncture visits have been truly helpful, but my last visit is giving me a lot to process chemically, biologically, and spiritually. It's like someone unleashed the flood gates of all the symptoms of both illnesses at once in a combined package for me to experience in a one transparent package.  Very enlightening and to be blunt I feel like crap. So it's time to accept the package names and all, the curtain was lifted and the waxing and waning symptoms of fibromyalgia we're released. Please share any positive support or stories you have on coping with celiac recovery, celiac/fibromyalgia, and  healing by accupuncture. It will be much appreciated. As it is abundantly clear AWOL is here to stay on the celiac.com forums. Thanks
