  1. I'm actually very sure he was talking about a threshold level for the foods that I tested positive to on a scratch test. Most of them, I have never had a reaction to (now things like cantaloupe & carrots, which I also tested positive for, I have). I'm actually having somtehing very similar to what a few people have described about my allergies just getting incredibly severe the last few months. I'm really hoping that following a gluten-free diet will help with them. Thanks, everyone, for your advice & stories!
  2. I should clarify... the allergy medications are mainly for severe hayfever/mold/dust allergies. And thank you for the reply.
  3. Hello all... I'm new here. I just got back from my doctor's appointment and he let me know that the blood tests were positive for celiac. However, he said that I didn't need to worry too much about it, as so many people are diagnosed with it now that it won't kill me. (I also had allergy testing done yesterday and showed up having a significant allergy to practically every substance known to man, including eggs, corn, milk & soy.) The doctor told me to avoid all these foods (eat only rice, chicken & tomatoes) for 2-3 weeks while the Allegra-D & Singulair took effect, and then to start reintroducing things until I developed symptoms again. From everything I've read on the web... if you show up with positive blood tests for celiac, you need to avoid gluten. period. So my question is... has anyone else had this experience and whose out of line here, my doctor or me?
