Vitamin C For Gluten Reaction?
0

6 posts in this topic

Has anyone tried vitamin C to bring a halt to symptoms?

Mega dosing vitamin C is supposed to block histamine.

I tried it with my son as a last resort, in desperation.

His fever cleared, and stomach pain went away within

hours.

Coincidence? I will probably never know.

Has anyone else tried it?

I have not tried it for glutening yet, but I definitely have noticed sinus congestion, pain and brain fog clearing when I mega dose Vitamin C.

Mega dosing has helped me clear multi-day constipation issues. I discovered the relationship earlier this year when I was trying to get over a cold quickly so I took a product called Emergen C, and took two doses close together. I had never gone such a large and dense quantity before in my 45 years.

That is interesting because Emergen C is only 1 gram in each dosing. You definitely have a lot of room to bump it up without concern if you get used to that small a dose over time.

I accidentally ate a finger swipe of gluteny mustard on a recent camping trip and during my freak out I decided to take an emergen-c about ten minutes after eating it. Not all of my symptoms went away but my face didn't swell at all (usually around my eyes) and my symptoms seemed to be less severe than normal. I'm not sure if there is any connection or if it was just all in my head. My next glutening I'll be trying it again. Even if it doesn't help any it definitely won't hurt me any.

Haven't tried it, first I've heard of this, sounds interesting though.

I can't really tell if I've eaten gluten, so I don't expect this would help me 'get over' eating the gluten. :-)

If that works by reducing a histamine response I would be surprised since histamines aren't IgAntibodies, which are supposed to be the ones involved in celiac disease. (Of course gluten intolerant people don't necessarily have the IgA reaction...)

Aren't strawberries exceedindly high in vitamin C, in the correct form of it too? (cis instead of trans or however natural vs. unnatural vitamin C is shaped) But strawberry allergies seem to be pretty common.

If it helps or works though, very cool! I should try it out. Brain fog, depression and tiredness are what's reduced my quality of life.

    • How long have you been gluten-free? Took my dh many months to go away after I mastered the diet.
    • What a great post! I will reply, I'm very interested in this topic too, but I'll do it when I have enough time to do your questions justice.  
    • Hello I also tested negative after being convinced it would be positive. If you're interested in learning more about NCGS I collected a few links here. One thing I wanted to comment on is the idea that NCGS means you don't have to be as careful about slipping from the diet. My own experience is that very small amounts of cross contamination can cause symptoms to return. Mostly neuro rather than GI. Of course others may have different experiences, this condition is not yet fully understood. However this is what one of the leading researchers Umberto Volta says: The good news is all my symptoms resolve on the diet. Hopefully that will also be the case for your daughter too. You will both find things get easier as you get more used to the diet, better at reading labels and more comfortable with the 'safe' brands you get to know and trust. It will get easier for you both, just may be rough at the outset.  Best of luck!
    • Kareng, you bring up an interesting question.  She sees a pediatric GI who diagnosed her with NCGI.  She tested negative on blood work and biopsy was negative 3 years ago.  She continued struggling with stomaches, vomiting, headaches, emotional behavior, fatigue or hyperactivity, constipation, etc.  he thought for sure she was celiac 3 years ago but tested negative.  When we returned for a follow up as the symptoms were increasing, he diagnosed the NCGI.  I do have to say besides the snow cone incident, she has felt better the last 3 weeks than in a long time.  Should I be looking for a second opinion?  I just want her to feel better.
