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.

    • thats so exciting! let me know if you need any help with finding gluten-free products or brands when you move here
    • I have had NO breath tests done. Just  blood, stool, colonoscopy and endoscopy. I'm sorry. I'm feeling so discouraged. I just know its going to be put down to IBS. And I personally feel  that IBS is a throw away diagnosis when no one wants to investigate further. 
    • Also, have you been tested for H. Pylori infection?  I think I have seen that many ulcers can be attributed to that. It is also diagnosed with a breath test.  Hang in there. Many people have been in your shoes.  I wish it were easier.  
    • Another thing to investigate is SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth). It can cause all of these symptoms. There is a breath test to check for it which any GI doctor should know about, although you have a better chance of knowledge at a teaching hospital.  There's a lot of new research in this area. Here is more information: http://www.siboinfo.com/overview.html The current thought is that many IBS cases are actually SIBO. The treatment requires antibiotics (standard or herbal, both work) and dietary adjustments to reduce fermentable carbs so as not to feed the bacteria.  If it is very advanced, it can take multiple courses of treatment and for some people it seems to be chronic. There is always an underlying cause. Food sensitivities and malfunctioning migrating motor complex are the two big ones. Also structural problems with the intestines that slow motility is another.  There is a high prevelance of SIBO in gluten intolerance. My theory is that it is the neuro toxicity of gluten in susceptible individuals that slows gut transit and sets up a perfect condition for bacterial overgrowth.  But I'm not a doctor  I just have a daughter with chronic SIBO and gluten intolerance that manifests itself in neurological symptoms.   You might want to look into it.  The above website is a treasure trove of information. 
    • 1. My thyroid was tested and is in the normal range.    2. I'm not taking any medication so nothing to interfere with test results.  3.  My endoscopy showed multiple ulcers and that's what the GI chalked up to my very rare ibuprofen use. I use ibuprofen maybe once a month if that.  4.  I'll check into anything to figure out what's wrong     I got my Celiac test back today. It showed no evidence of Celiac disease. So I'm back at the drawing board. I did another stool test today also.
